Hair removal

Androgen-driven hair, especially facial hair, is an almost universal problem for trans women who did not transition before puberty. It is one of the most difficult problems to solve, and getting rid of it will often be essential for assimilation. Anyone who is planning to go full time and is even remotely considering the option of stealth is strongly advised to seek permanent facial hair removal as soon as possible in transition. For some trans women, it is the most time-consuming and expensive part of the entire process.

This needs to be said first and foremost: Electrolysis is the most reliable option available that has been proven to remove facial hair permanently. Laser hair removal can be an acceptable or even preferable alternative in some cases, but laser is usually not enough by itself to remove all transgender facial hair permanently. See the link below for more on lasers for transgender women and options for combining electrolysis and laser.
