About Laser Hair Removal
Transgender laser hair removal involves using targeted light energy to damage hair follicles on the face and body. For a lot of trans women, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) has been found to gradually reduce hair growth. Combining HRT with laser hair removal treatments is a safe way to accelerate the hair reduction process.

What happens at the consultation?
During a consultation for transgender laser hair removal one of our highly trained and experienced laser specialists will go through a presentation explaining the process of laser hair removal in detail.
Subjects such as how it works, what makes Soprano lasers so good for this treatment, preparation, expected results and aftercare are all covered. Prior to your visit we will send you a medical form to complete. This is to screen for covid 19 and also to check for any medications or medical conditions that may present a barrier to treatment.
You will have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have and outline your goals and concerns and then the laser specialist will try out the laser on each body area you are interested in treating.
At this point you will experience how the treatment actually feels. We will then discuss the package you are interested in going for which can start as soon as 48 hours after the patch test. If you want to go away and think about it first, no problem, we want to give you all the information is a safe, welcoming environment, we are not into the hard sell!
What happens if there is a complication?
Complications for laser hair removal are very rare. Prior to commencing treatment, a patch test will be carried out. If you are one of the very rare people that are not suited to treatment, it will be apparent during the test.
By screening everyone before each visit for any medical conditions or medications that may cause a complication, we avoid problems. If we judge that a treatment is potentially going to be of higher risk, we simply will not go ahead. Our first concern is always going to be your safety.
Because Soprano lasers work by gradually increasing the heat in the hair follicles, long before it gets hot enough to damage you skin you will be able to tell the laser specialist to pause. Protective goggles are worn by both the patient and laser specialist throughout treatment.

“I’ve found doing Laser Hair Removal at Mayfair Aesthetics extremely gratifying! It’s helped me with my gender dysphoria as having facial/body hair was a huge trigger for me. I’m virtually hairless now and they’ve been so welcoming and I’ve not felt judged, not even once! The team are friendly and knowledgeable in their field or laser hair removal. I couldn’t live without it!”
