“As a male to female transgender person in their early stages of transitioning I found it extremely comfortable to be around Geraldine. She understands your concerns and is easy to talk to. Geraldine offers a highly professional service using her Apilus machine, which offers a range of electrolysis techniques to suit the need of the client.
I approached Geraldine to have facial hair removal and although due to having to relocate I wasn’t able to continue my treatment, I would highly recommend her as an advanced electrolysis to other women or someone in my position.”
ELECTROLYSIS – TRANSGENDER
Unwanted hair can be an extremely distressing and sensitive subject for transsexuals, for whom permanent hair removal is both life-changing and a necessity. Hormone therapy significantly reduces much of the excess hair around the body. However, there are two main problem areas which will always remain and will take many hours of work over a long period of time to remove.
ADVANTAGES OF ELECTROLYSIS
The good news is that with the Apilus treatment times are greatly reduced, and levels of comfort achieved that were never before possible. Another advantage of electrolysis is the amount of control that’s possible, especially important when removing the beard.
But here’s an advisory note. Many people have been seduced into being treated by laser or IPL, with promises of quick, permanent results. For a very few, good or acceptable results can be achieved, depending on skin and hair colour. However, for the vast majority there will remain a significant amount of hair which can only be treated by electrolysis.
Unfortunately, many people will waste significant amounts of time and money, as well as causing themselves some skin damage, before they realise the need to for electrolysis. Better to choose the right treatment in the first place.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
The removal of a beard or body hair can be a lengthy process. However, a suitable treatment plan will be tailored to your requirements to ensure your goals are achieved in the most efficient way possible.
