I’m a 31 Yr old TS from Hawaii. I have just begun Hormones and want to start electrolysis. I live on the Big Island and there are almost no electrologists on my island. Oahu has several, but I need a recommendation as for who to go to.
I have had not previously done anything for hair removal other than shaving. I have an Appointment with Electrology 2000 in Texas but wanted to find out about others experiences. I am most concerned about permanent scarring.
The costs are great using this option about $6500 for the 1st clearing. then returning about every 6-8 weeks to do it again.
My advisor recommended I do Laser 1st then go to Electrolysis to finish it off. My skin is very fair (I burn in about 15-20 minutes without protection) and my facial hair is brown and very thick. The Laser avail in my area is the Coolglide Yang. I have heard that Laser is effective for the 1st 6 months then almost all the facial hair returns…Is this true? Is Laser then Electrolysis a viable option when the goal is complete permanent removal?
