Gender-Affirming Laser Hair Removal

For male-to-female (MTF) patients, the removal of unwanted hair is a simple yet highly effective way of feeling more feminine.

At-home hair removal methods such as shaving and waxing can be costly, time-consuming, and ineffective. In contrast, laser hair removal only needs to be performed once every six weeks, and ongoing treatments will help to permanently reduce hair growth in desired areas.

“I had an excellent experience at Rowe Plastic Surgery. The staff were accomodating and informed, making me feel comfortable at every step. I highly recommend the team here!

Unlike non-surgical hair removal methods, laser hair removal actually disables the follicle, removing unwanted hair and preventing future regrowth.

The result is smooth, beautiful, hairless skin. Depending on the size and location of the area being targeted, treatment can take anywhere from ten minutes to two hours to complete. Afterward, the patient may experience some mild swelling and redness in the treated area which can usually be alleviated with aloe vera gel or an ice pack.

Between treatments, it’s important that patients don’t undergo artificial tanning, apply sunscreen to the treated areas, or otherwise depilate the treated areas themselves.
