body hair dysphoria, laser 

the War Against Hair has just been kicked up a notch 💪

hair removal, tria laser 4x live review 

- even at max level, it seems to be a *lot* less powerful than a laser clinic. I haven’t tried on face yet, so my comparison might be of. but even for my belly (where the hair is still thick and black), I barely felt any pain at all, mostly heat. I hope it’s doing something!

- this does make it less scary to do on yourself tho.

- it is not designed for post-testosterone bodies. the application window has maybe 1cm of diameter, and you have to move overlappingly in half steps. takes forever to cover any sizeable area.

- accordingly, the battery doesn't last crap. manual says it is "normal" to have to charge midway — and each charge takes "at least 2h". dunno if I charged fully but my first try lasted some 300 pulses at max level, which amounted to ca. ⅓ my lower belly.

- this is in addition to the battery only lasting some 300 cycles, and being intentionally nonreplaceable so as to make the device disposable by design (see: newscrewdriver.com/2019/02/19/ ).

- doing laser at home has a lot of advantages over a clinic, but overall I can’t say I’m super happy with this company. everything would be so much better if it simply worked on a power cable, but nooo, they ~had~ to capitalism it.

likes about the tria:

- the beeps. one when lasering starts, one when it's safe to move. the beeps are soft and not annoying and – this is ~very~ important – they start concomitant with the pain, not before. might sound silly but there was an IPL machine that beeped before, and after 5m I was Pavlovianly conditioned to dread and suffering at beep.

- you don't have to press buttons, just lift and reposition. important when you do the same thing 600 times

this time a full a 2h charge, with brand new battery, gave me 720 zaps. this was enough for the remaining ⅔ of belly, bikini zone, and 1 boob.

I felt real pain for the first time in the bikini area. this might mean my belly hair is not as black as dysphoria wants me to believe it is. it was still quite far from the pain of facial hair removal at the clinic, and very much tolerable at max level. (I'm not strong to pain or anything!)

what y'all were waiting for.

the tria manual says to not use it on a beard, and I regret to say it is indeed very painful.

I have 10 sessions of laser and some electro; most of my facial hair is gone, but I still have enough in a few spots to have some shadow (under the nose, on chin, and especially underlip, where the clinic's machine had trouble reaching). these areas watered my eyes with sharp pain and it was hard to force myself to keep going.

that being said, it was certainly not *more* painful than the clinic's laser machine. and given that the power specs are the same or lower, I can't see any reason for it to be verboten, other than the company not wanting to deal with lawsuits etc. from the resulting facial skin burn damage (when I started it took like 1 week+ to heal).

the pain makes it hard to do it on yourself; I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to self-laser on full facial hair.

armpits hair removal, tria laser 4x live review 

armpits pain rating: not that painful at all (at max level)! I hope it’s actually working lol.

lasering armpits and bikini area feels vaguely transhumanistic/body-modding to me, beyond simply feminising 😌

did the arms too but they’re partially epilated and this is one area where the estrogen has cleared a tad, so it was more tedium than pain. the good thing about lasering at home is that you can calmly put on some audiobooks, sit comfortably etc.

trans femmes are like, "I know a place" and then zap precisely the 1cm spot where like 1 lone terminal hair pops up sometimes

when I was 6 I was run over by a car, badly. it left me with a big scar on my right foot. I had kind of forgotten about it, but another leftover is 1 stitch that ended up never being removed. you can see it as a darker spot under the skin if you pay attention.

and ~girl~, does it hurt a lot when zapped with lasers ^^;;;

if I get reasonably smooth legs+butt from this after 3~4mo it will be ~so~ worth the price and pain and hours of tedious application 🥰

might be a bit hard to self-zap properly on butt tho, even with my hypermobile shoulders 🤔

folx, it works! probably 😌

I mean with laser you can never tell before a long wait. but my hairs are scorched carbon-black and coming out slowly, just like when I did laser in a clinic. I can shave already; probably 2~3 days after application is safe (but notice I have little facial hair left).

except for the face, I found the time and effort of applications to be bigger obstacles than the pain.

took 3×2h charges to do 01 single thigh lol.

I'm choosing to look at this as validation of my thiccness :ablobowo:

this is so BORING. i am BORED. it’s still my first round – I can only handle 1 body part/day max – and I’m already bored out of my mind. I need to look at it so I can’t read or watch stuff during application, and now that I finished Her Bright Ascendancy I'm out of queer fantasy to listen to.

wish I could hang out all day with a gf who plays videogames or an instrument or something and doesn’t mind me lasering interminably while resting between her legs.

@elilla
how about, a gf to laser you while you play videogames and luxuriate and do some light reading?
