At HairFreeSG, we are a LGBTQ+ friendly business. We absolutely understand permanent hair removal plays a very important part in your gender transition. Some examples are: Genital hair removal in preparation for Gender Confirmation surgery (SRS), targeting facial hair removal (upper lip, sideburns and chin) or helping you with beautiful eyebrow shaping.
Seeking gender-affirming interventions, such as: Hormone Therapy, Surgery (SRS, GRS) and Facial Hair Removal have all been defined as medically necessary by the World Professional Association for Transgender Health. This applies to transgender women, transgender men, and other gender nonconforming individuals.
A recent journal article outlines the importance of hair removal to feel great in your skin and to combat gender dysphoria:
"hair removal is associated with both decreased distress but also increased subjective well-being (e.g. higher positive affect). Though the construct of ‘gender euphoria’ has been introduced in previous publications, it has thus far not been rigorously defined or operationalized within health research. These results suggest that gender euphoria can be understood in terms of increased subjective well-being associated with gender affirmation, including gender-affirmative medical interventions."

Are the electrologists at HairFreeSG experienced with treating Gender Confirmation clients?
Yes, we are experienced with treating Gender Confirmation individuals. We understand the necessary commitment and would like to be a valuable partner in your transition.
Information about your plans are vital to us as it helps us to ensure that your Electrolysis treatments work in hand with your long-term goals.
Can Electrolysis remove hair in the Genital area?
Yes. However in the case of Genital Hair Removal for pre-surgery preparation, we strongly encourage you to consult with your surgeon about Genital Electrolysis prior to SRS/GRS.
It is important to allow sufficient time for Electrolysis prior your surgery to prevent future complications such as hair growth inside the vagina post-surgically (SRS), as Electrolysis does need multiple treatments over a period of time to be effective.
Your electrologists can advise you on a treatment plan with consistent appointments to get you prepared.
