Transgender Women

Transgender women have it pretty rough. Transitioning is a terribly costly endeavor with many, many hurdles. Facial hair removal, for many, being one of the biggest. I had laser hair removal performed on my face several times and, although the hair came back slowly, the hair still came back. I have pale, fair skin and relatively dark hair thus making me an ideal candidate. After putting several hundred dollars into a hair removal method which was seemingly ineffective, I made an appointment to see Gemma. I'd always heard that electrolysis was both a painful and costly procedure which is what drove me to look into laser hair removal. After having undergone several electrolysis sessions, I can honestly say I regret having invested so much time and money into getting zapped by a laser. I've gone in for several electrolysis sessions with Gemma. The pain has been minimal and the progress has been impressive... which is exactly what I wanted in the first place!
