Transgender hair removal

As a transgender woman or man, your body will experience a wide range of changes. One of these changes is the existing pattern of hair removal. During a transition process, depilation of the face or the future surgery area is part of the process. As hair removal can be a time-consuming treatment, we advise you to start in good time with the treatment of permanent hair removal.

The treatment process takes place in cooperation with the VUmc, which Huidzorg West has entered into a partnership with. The skin therapists of Huidzorg West work according to the special protocol drawn up by the VUmc.
