Hair that grows after puberty, especially facial hair, is often a problem for trans women who did not start hormone blockers before puberty. It is one of the hardest things to deal with. Anyone who plans to go full time should consider permanent facial hair removal as soon as they can start. For some trans women, it takes the most time and money of their whole gender change.
Electrolysis has been used for almost 150 years to remove facial hair permanently. The person who does it needs to be very good to kill our facial hair.
Laser hair removal can be better for some people who have light colored skin and dark colored hair. Laser does not work on everyone. People with dark skin need to be very careful with laser. You can get burned or have changes to your skin color. Many people need some electrolysis after a few laser treatments.
