About

Hi, I'm Jake and I specialize in facial hair removal for trans women. I'm nonbinary and I wanted to do work that matters while meeting and spending time with other trans people.

Full facial clearance is a years-long process, so it's important to pick an electrologist you like and feel comfortable around. I hope that my familiarity with the trans experience and comfortable location - my home - make this experience as stress-free as possible.

Prices

Pricing for trans women and transfem people:
$65 for 1 hour
$95 for 90 minutes

Preperation Before Your Appointment

Grow out the hair to be removed to at least 1/3 cm (ususally 3 days of growth, but everyone is different). Many people wear a cough mask to hide the growth before hand.

Ways to reduce pain:

  • Taking Ibuprofen about 30 minutes before your appointment will reduce pain and swelling
  • Drinking a lot of water the day before and day of will make it faster and less painful
  • Avoid caffeine the morning of
  • Get a full nights sleep the night before (weirdly important)
  • if you're really bothered by the pain, topical cream with lidocain (They sell this at most pharmacies, even wallmart, but they may keep it behind the counter. Follow instructions on package- usually 30+ mins before)

Aftercare

Aftercare is fairly simple, the most important thing is to not touch the treated area and not pick at anything.

  • Immediately after your treatment I apply witch hazel (anti-microbial and astringent). I don't recommend putting anything else on it for 24 hours, no makeup, sunscreen, lotion, etc.
  • Pure aloe (not lotion with aloe), more witch hazel, or pure teatree oil can sometimes help but usually it's best to just let the skin heal undisturbed.
  • If you can, avoid direct sunlight for 24 hours
  • If you can, avoid shaving for 24 hours
  • don't go swimming for 24 hours

After 24 hours you can go back to your normal routine, but be gentle on your skin, wash your hands before you touch your face, and do not pick!

All of these side effects are normal and will heal without a trace (so long as you don't pick at them)

  • redness
  • swelling
  • bumps
  • stinging/tenderness
  • possible whiteheads (this is why it's important not to touch it- fingers are germy)
