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.
The number of treatments depends on the treatment method. For laser hair removal, this is an average of 6 to 9 treatments. In the case of electrical hair removal, this is an average of 10-20 treatments per treatment area.The exact number of treatments varies per person. The number of treatments required depends on various factors such as the location, hair density, the colour of the skin and hair and the age at which oestrogen therapy was started.
During the consultation with the skin therapist, Huidzorg West can give an indication of the number of treatments needed.
Facial hair removal by means of laser and electrical epilation in the case of male-female transition can be reimbursed from the basic insurance. The payment will be made by debit card or cash at the end of each treatment. The invoices can then be submitted to the health insurance company.
The payment procedure for hair removal from the genital area is different. VUmc has a cooperation agreement with Skin Care West. The VUmc provides a budget for the hair removal of the genital area.
On average, treatment takes between 15-45 minutes.
Depending on the treatment method to be used, the treatment will take place approximately once every 4-6 weeks.
Transgender hair removal is part of our transgender care. In addition to the permanent hair removal methods, Huidzorg West also offers other transgender care, such as scar therapy and camouflage therapy.
