Updated April 12, 2024

If you are transgender and looking for a safe and welcoming place to have laser hair removal or other services, I want you to know that you are welcome here. 

I’m committed to providing welcoming care to the LGBTQ+ community in St. Catharines and Niagara. I treat many transgender clients and it’s very important to me to provide an inclusive and comfortable experience for you, along with the most effective hair removal results. 

Being able to control hair and limit hair growth in unwanted places is very important. There’s a reason laser hair removal is so popular with transgender people. There are zero long-term health risks associated with the treatment and unlike a few years ago, new state of the art equipment works for all skin types.

Understanding the Process:

Laser hair removal works by targeting the pigment in hair follicles with concentrated light energy. This energy is absorbed by the hair follicle, effectively damaging it and inhibiting future hair growth. The procedure is safe and relatively painless, with many clients comparing the sensation to a rubber band snapping against the skin.

The process typically requires multiple sessions spaced several weeks apart to target hair in different stages of growth. While results may vary depending on factors such as hair color and skin type, most individuals experience a significant reduction in hair growth after completing their sessions.

Combining Laser Hair Removal with Electrolysis:

For transgender individuals seeking a comprehensive hair removal solution, combining laser hair removal with electrolysis can be highly effective. Laser hair removal is ideal for reducing hair growth in larger areas such as the chest, back, or legs, in addition to the face, while electrolysis targets individual stubborn hairs for permanent removal.

By starting with laser hair removal to thin out the hair and then following up with electrolysis for precision hair removal, clients can achieve smoother and more permanent results. This approach allows for a tailored treatment plan that addresses specific needs and preferences, empowering individuals to feel more confident in their bodies.

Creating a Welcoming Environment:

I understand the importance of providing a safe and affirming space where transgender individuals can feel comfortable and respected. I can provide personalized care and support throughout the hair removal process, ensuring that each client feels valued and empowered.

Take the First Step:

If you’re bothered by unwanted body and facial hair and you’re looking to save time and money, I would be happy to offer a consultation to go over our treatments and process.  My laser hair removal procedures are not only safe and effective, but they’re a convenient way to achieve a hairless look that lasts!
