Hi I am an M2F Transsexual too.
I live in Davenport, Iowa and will be traveling to James Walker’s about about every month for electrolysis.
I have found that one of my MTF T’s had poor results from Laser treatment. After 4 years of treatment she is still having to shave and some damage under her skin. She is very disapointed with the results. I believe that if you need to sign a waiver to exempt the person treating you with any extreem light form is a signal to stay away. I personally do not want to take care of and protect my skin from damaging procedures.
As far as I am concerned elecrolosys is the only way for permanent hair removal. It takes a while because the male hair growth on the face is very thick and requires more time for hair removal. It just requires patience. I have been going to James for 4 years and still need to have hair removal. However I work completely in the public eye and no one even notices that I am other than a woman.
James lives and works here in Buffalo, NY about 3 hours from you In Pitsburgh, PA. This is as opposed to my 13 hours that I travel every month from Davenport, IA to have the “best” electrologist and I have tried many. James uses the best equipment and stayes up on all of the new developments and has treated many many Transsexuals and has removed litteraly millions of hairs, from me alone over 20,000. I like him because his methods are permenant and almost painless. In fact I usually sleep through the treatment because of this.
I would like to suggest you considering him for further treatment and be very cautious of any form of shear light or laser treatment. They could permently damage your skin and be visable in the very place you want to make and keep attactive.
These are just my personal experiences and would hope that they help you.
After elec. treatment I use Melaleuc oil which is a highly refined Tea Tree Oil, MelaGel which is a topical balm used especially for this type of procedure and a hypoalergenic tripple antibiotic to speed the healing process. This is all worth it for my skin.
Also with proper skin care daily washing with a skin care foaming wash, Balancing Toner, and moisturizing lotion and the use of the best skin care products you will have beautiful skin.
as you can see I am very methodical and careful with my skin.
