Transgender & non-binary

Feeling good in your body is important for everyone. As a transgender or non-binary person, you may go through several changes and may not feel completely at home in your own body. Fortunately, with the advanced of today's skin therapy, there are several ways to assist people dealing with these challanges. We understand that it can feel like a big step to take, which is why our skin therapists take te time to inform you all about the possible treatments options at Huid & Laser Kliniek Delft. Together, we want to work towards helping you to feel good.

At Huid & Laser Kliniek Delft we offer a range of treatments for people who are struggling with gender dysphoria. Think of laser hair removal or scar treatments. As a clinic we work together with the VU medical center or other similar knowledge and care centers and have a lot of experience in performing treatments on people who do not feel at home in their own body. Below are the treatments we can support you with:

Laser hair removal

You want to feel comfortable, without embarrassment of hair growth in unwanted areas. We are experts in this field and are happy to share our expertise with you in a free consultation. Options often include facial hair removal and removal of the hair aarount surgical area before sex change surgury, for example.

You may have tried hormone treatments, unfortunately, in many cases these do not help to give optimum results for the reduction or prevention of hair growth. Laser hair removal can therefore be a good solution to reduce both unwatned facial and body hair. Would you like to know exactly how this treatment works?

Scar treatment

Sometimes scars after gender reassignment surgery can be perceived as disturbing. At Huid & Laser Kliniek Delft, we can reduce scars and improve the skin structure of the scar through our (non-ablative) fractional laser or microneedling. Want to know what a scar treatment looks like?

Number of treatments

Laser hair removal:

In our experience, laser hair removal on the face requires an average of 8-10 treatments in a trans woman to achieve the desired result. In addition, for a transman, we can also treat the forearm by laser hair removal in preparation for phalloplasty. We also treat the genital area in preparation for gender reassignment surgery. An average of 6-8 treatments are recommended for this.

Scar treatment:

Every treatment at Huid & Laser Kliniek Delft gives results. But the optimal effect becomes visible after 3-5 treatments with the fractional laser. Between each treatment, the skin is allowed 4 weeks to recover. The collagen stimulation continues to work for several months after the last treatment, the result then also continues to increase. A combination of laser treatments and microneedling may also be advised. Our skin therapists would be happy to give you more information in a free consultation.

Frequently asked questions

What result can be expected?

Laser hair removal results can vary greatly from person to person. Take into account an average of 6-8 treatments to achieve the desired results. This means that 70% to 90% of the hair follicles have been destroyed and the remaining hairs are thin in structure. The number of treatments required, and the result depend on hair colour, hair growth cycle, hair density and location of hair growth, among other things.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

The hair removal laser emits flashes of light, which is often compared to the feeling of a rubber band flicking against the skin. When there is a lot of thick and dark hair present, this feeling intensifies in comparison to thin, light coloured hair. Your pain threshold will also determine how you experience the treatment.

Which body areas are suitable for laser hair removal?

Hormonal treatment is often insufficient to limit facial hair growth. Therefore, laser hair is often a populair and successful addition.

Laser hair removal is also often desired for the genital region, prior to sex change surgery. Note that this treatment should be started 16 months piror to the procedure. An average of 7 treatment sessions are needed with an interval of 6 to 8 weeks each time.

Of course, disturbing body hair in other areas of the body can also be reduced by laser hair removal.

Which laser is used to laser facial hair?

At Huid & Laser Kliniek Delft we use two different lasers for hair removal: the Nd:yag laser and the Diode laser. Both with FDA approval and both proven effective. The Nd:yag laser is especially for darker pigmented skins (skin types 5 and 6). We only use this laser for the face. The Diode laser is for lighter skins (skin types 1 to 4) and is used for the whole body.

Is laser treatment suitable for red, blonde and grey hair?

Unfortunately, there is currently no effective laser method to treat blonde, red and grey hair. What does appear to be an effective treatment is electrical epilation in small areas. Wondering what we can do for you? Get in touch with one of our skin therapists for a free consultation.

What should I consider when starting laser hair removal?

Pre-care

  • For an effective laser treatment, it is important that the hair is present in the hair follicle. You should therefore not epilate or wax the hair for 4-6 weeks before the laser treatment. However, trimming or shaving can be done.
  • Avoid exposure to the sun and/or tanning beds until the end of the treatment programme. Also avoid sunless tanning/application of spray tan. This is important because your most natural skin type determines the avoidance of your skin burning during treatment.
  • Shave hair as short as possible before each treatment and, if necessary, remove make-up in the area to be treated beforehand.

Aftercare

  • Immediately after treatment, the skin may be a little red and you may experience slight swelling around the hair follicles. These skin reactions are normal and usually disappear completely after up to four days.
  • Avoid hot baths, saunas, steam baths for 48h after treatment.
  • The skin is very sensitive to UV light after treatment, so you should avoid direct exposure to the sun/sunbed. In addition, protect your skin with factor 30 or 50 every 2 hours if the area cannot be covered, even when it is cloudy or winter.
  • The hairs will fall out arount 1-2 weeks after treatment. In between, you can simply cut the hair short or shave it off.
