Laser Hair Removal

Conveniently located to serve New York City, Tribeca, and The Upper East Side

There’s one truth about the transgender journey that everyone can agree on: All trans people experience their transition differently. This makes sense, given that there are a limitless number of gender expressions and ways of transitioning, and no matter what your journey looks like, it’s a process unique to you. At Tribeca MedSpa, we respect how personal this process is, and provide a welcoming, friendly environment; top-quality services; and the expertise necessary to make your treatment plan a success.

“I have a lot of experience working with the transgender community, and I know that no matter where you are in your transition, you’re going through a lot. It’s a joy for me to help make our transgender patients feel super comfortable,” says Medical Aesthetician Merve Aykanat. Merve divides her time with us at Tribeca Med Spa and at the Mount Sinai Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery, and has focused her career on working with transgender patients undergoing their transition process. “For our transgender patients, laser hair removal is about making life easier and helping you feel more like yourself. Laser hair removal treatments can really increase your confidence.”

For trans women and some nonbinary people, laser hair removal can be an exciting step in your journey. It’s also a great, noninvasive option suited to wherever you are in your transition process, whether or not you’re opting for surgery. Unlike many other facilities who tout the benefits of one laser hair removal system, at Tribeca MedSpa, we have chosen to invest in a range of laser hair removal equipment. This is because some laser hair removal treatment options are better suited to certain skin types and tones than others, and we want to tailor an individualized, safe and effective treatment plan that’s best suited for you.

When considering what kinds of laser hair removal treatments you may want to get, we will work with you to develop a laser hair removal treatment plan ideal for your needs. Merve notes that many of our patients opt for full body laser treatment, however, some of our trans patients choose to start with individualized areas. Areas of treatment for trans patients often include:

Full face, including cheeks, upper lip, chin, and neck

Chest, including areolas


Legs, including feet and toes

Arms, including hands and fingers

Bikini line, also Brazilian Bikini line

Butt, also Inner Buttocks

Our laser hair removal systems are proven to be safe and effective. While there is some minor discomfort associated with the procedure—it’s often likened to the feeling of a rubber band snapping against your skin—we work to provide a gentle, spa-like experience so that you leave feeling confident and refreshed. As we discuss your options with you and build a treatment plan, you may choose to incorporate another service, like our Multi Mask Facial, into your treatment days so that your laser hair removal feels even more like an enjoyable day at the medspa (and you’ll leave with glowing, fresh skin, too).

“I take so much pride in working with members of the trans community,” Merve says. “And I just love helping my patients feel good about themselves!” If you’re considering laser hair removal as part of your transition process and you want to work with a team that cares about the trans community and understands your individualized needs, Tribeca MedSpa is the right home for you.
