Laser hair removal

If you are planning to undergo laser hair removal, it is best to limit other forms of hair removal for six weeks before treatment. Before the procedure, your dermatologist will trim the hair you want removed to a few millimeters in length. A dermatologist moves a low-energy beam laser over your skin. Pigments in your hair follicles absorb the energy, which results in long-term or permanent hair reduction and removal. This procedure takes several minutes to hours, depending on the area treated. Your skin may appear slightly sunburned after treatment.

Hormone Replacement Therapy (Endocrinology)

Masculinizing hormone therapy: used to minimize undesired feminine characteristics and promote masculinization. As a result, you may notice changes in your voice and development of facial and body hair, sweat and odor patterns. You may also see an increase in your muscle mass, a redistribution of facial and body subcutaneous fat, frontal and temporal hairline recession and, possibly, male pattern baldness. Additional sexual effects may include an increase in libido, clitoral growth, vaginal dryness and cessation of menses. Talk to your doctor about any additional side effects you can expect.
