Friendly electrolysis places in Brisbane?
« on: January 24, 2017, 06:04:17 pm »
Hi Brisbane ladies,

    Can anyone point me to a friendly/sympathetic electrolysis place in Brisbane?  I'm quite keen to get started on hair removal, but I don't want to deal with the emotional difficulty of a hostile technician.  Has anyone found somewhere they've liked?  I'm not your normal sort of client, since I'm still presenting quite male, but my bodyhair super bothers me and I am at the point where I can't stand it anymore.

    Thoughts?

I can't answer your question on electrolysis, but I've had quite a bit of laser done in Brisbane by Results Laser, and now Laser Clinics Australia. I still present male when I go (upper lip hair is proving to be persistent) and I've never had an issue with the staff even though I've made it clear that I'm trans. I've had by face, back, chest and stomach done, which collectively has done wonders for reducing dysphoria.

I too would be interested to know of any local trans friendly electrolysis places.

Hey girls,

I know this is an old topic but I just wanted to say that I am getting my electrolysis done at a lovely place in Coorparoo called Ambience Beauty. The girls there are very friendly, professional, discreet, and understanding of my needs as a transgender woman.

Hi Rainecloude, thanks for posting this. Welcome to Susan's Place!  :)

A couple of questions for you... What method of electrolysis do they use, and do they have much experience with trans women?

Hey,

Thanks for the warm welcome. I'm not sure what electrolysis they use? I was unaware there was a difference. They just zap my face for an hour! :P

They said to me initially that they had worked with trans clients before and they have not shown me anything to suggest otherwise. They knew that hormones would ease up the process and assist with some of my more stubborn hairs which it did.

They also suggested using a higher voltage and the non-gold tipped "needles" so more would be zapped and I would get more for my money. All I know is that it's working. :)

Much love. <3

I have started to have electrolysis at 'Epilette' in Brisbane city. I'm up for my fourth session, very slow and painful process. I have been receiving laser at Archon Spa's and Image by Laser now for 15 months and while initial results were quite dramatic, the lip/chin area is both stubborn and very painful.

As you may be aware facial beard hair (Androgenic hair) grows in three stages Anagen, Catagen and Telogen. Only the first stage Anagen is the stage where hair removal is effective. The Anagen phase (growth) lasts roughly 12 months, shorter than the hair from your scalp. Unfortunately these stages are different for each beard hair on the face; this is one of the main reasons why the process can take a long time.

Warm Regards Michelle

This is really helpful, thank you.
When I was having laser done years ago I wondered if some of the hormone cream you can find to reduce beard growth might have helped the results - the professionals didn't mention it. The upper lip is stubborn, particularly each side immediately bellow the nose - and the most painful place!
