Somewhere buried on this site are pictures of before and immediately after treatment for a number of clients. From faces to bikini work. Unfortunately, I don't have easy access to those, as the old picture gallery on this site got flushed in a web site refresh, and t he new photo section doesn't work the same, and the old pictures were never migrated. Elsewhere on the site, are pictures in post threads, and since I have so many posts on the site, it is hard to find any one post that I made, unless I know some key phrase that I only used in that post (for fun, run a search on the site for the word "Superman" as that will pull up a good post and a good laugh.)

I will see what I can find for the look of a person immediately after first clearance. It may be shocking to some, but the view a few days later has usually been seen as well worth it by most clients.

I know this picture is in a post thread elsewhere on the site, and it is NOT a first clearance, but it is the completion of about 20 hours of work on a full face and neck, plus eyebrows, taken at the end of the last session prior to the client going to sleep for the night. This was taken only minutes after the last hair was removed that day.

Setting a goal is not the main thing. It is deciding how you will go about achieving it and staying with that plan. --- Tom Landry

Most of the people requiring full clearance for male type beards are MTF transsexuals (sometimes refered to as transwomen amongst their peers) who are in the process of transition. Even if they may start seeing an electrologist in male mode they identify as female and removing the hair is part of the transition process and is a vitally important part of that process. Some start seeing the electrologist in male mode till they go full time and from then on they are always in female mode. The male mode was probably something they had to do to survive, but probably something they detested doing.

I know that it is a bit difficult to get the semantics right on this, but they are women and would like to be identified by the appropriate pronouns for females such as she or her.

I'm not sure that everyones skin can handle marathon sessions of full clearances however. I for one had sensitive skin. I think anyone considering transitioning should get the electrolysis started well before they go full time and be patient. They should try to schedule as lengthy sessions as the can handle at first and maintain regular appointments until the process is complete. If their skin doesn't heal that well within a week then space them every couple of weeks.

Most of all be patient and be determined and persistant with your appointments. In the end it will all be worth it and you won't have to worry about looking at or touching that repusive and disgusting facial hair ever again. You probably won't even need any foundation anymore.
