I’m a MTF transgendered person. I’ve had my facial hair removed by electrolysis, but though my body hair has thinned out a lot since my orchiectomy last May, it continues to be a problem. I am considering laser on the chest/stomach area, but have been terrified by spook sites like Susan Laird’s that claim that everyone who has laser has horrible things happen. I know laser doesn’t removal every single hair, and I am ok with that. What scared me was the graphic descriptions of permanent dark shadows left under the skin by exploding hair follicles, and assorted nightmarish complications.
What should I do? I don’t want to make anything worse, but I also think trying to use electrolysis on such a large area would take forever and be impossibly expensive.
