When we have treatment of any kind we naturally want to achieve the best results possible. This is no different when it comes to surgery and in this case vaginoplasty. Surgical techniques have moved on and surgeons are now keener than ever to ensure the best outcome for their patients. Whilst the removal of the hair from the donor site tissue isn’t essential for the surgical process it is considered essential in terms of patient satisfaction. Of course this is something that patients must consider well in advance of surgery as post-surgery the skin tissue is inaccessible to hair removal of any kind.

What are the options?

Laser/Intense Pulsed Light

Hair removal using clinically proven laser and IPL systems is easy, quick and relatively painless. However we can only treat hair which contains dark pigment and skin types that fall within certain colour restrictions. Cristianos have 20 years experience of conducting this treatment for clients and although we do not have the ability to scope the area post operatively both clients and surgeons have reported excellent levels of client satisfaction with no post-operative problems arising from regrowth of hair.


This process has the advantage of being able to treat any hair and skin colour, however the process is extremely operator dependent. Electrolysis requires the insertion of a very fine needle into the hair follicle. In order to do this the electrologist must stretch the skin using her thumb and first finger, opening the hair follicle and inserting the needle correctly. As you can imagine the scrotal skin does not lend itself easily to this process. Incorrect needle insertion can lead to damage to the dermal tissue. We recommend you choose an electrologist who is specifically trained to perform this procedure and who carries it out on a routine basis.

We at Cristianos do not believe we would carry out enough of these treatments to ensure optimum outcomes for our clients. Therefore we do not perform electrolysis of the donor site tissue for male to female clients. We will refer onto fully trained Electrologists who will be able to assist.

Joint Treatment Laser & Electrolysis

As with any area of hair growth we usually find mixed hair colours. In terms of treatment this will usually mean removal of the dark hair growth by means of light assisted hair removal in conjunction with electrolysis on the grey or red hairs. This methodology would also produce the optimum results for the donor site tissue.

We at Cristianos are more than happy to work alongside an electrologist of your choice, who is trained and experienced in genital hair removal. Joint working means we can reduce the overall treatment time for the patient by performing one light-based treatment per month and two electrolysis sessions. Collaboration between professionals will result in the best outcome for our client.


This is really important as we cannot treat the donor site tissue post-operatively with any method of hair removal as the tissue is inaccessible, therefore it is vitally important that this procedure is performed well in advance of surgery. We recommend between 8-10 treatment sessions with laser spaced at monthly intervals. Your electrologist will advise on the number of sessions she would recommend dependent on the amount of hair growth. We would highly recommend several months between the cessation of hair removal treatment and surgery in order to assess any regrowth that may occur.

Price are per session, all consultations are FREE of charge and if your treatment is for NHS funding then all referral letters and reports are also FREE of charge.

Yes, we have years of experience in working with the surgeons in providing this treatment.

On occasions a patient may have a specific need and we are more than happy to work under the express direction of your surgeon.

Because this is of course a very sensitive area of skin tissue there can be a sensation to treatment. At the time of treatment we cool the skin either by use of a cold pack or cold gel and most patients find this sufficient. Occasionally patients may choose to use topical anesthetic which can be requested from your GP.
