“I AM STRONG because I know my weaknesses. I AM BEAUTIFUL because I am aware of my flaws. I AM FEARLESS because I learnt to recognize illusion from real. I AM WISE because I learn from my mistakes. I AM A LOVER because I have felt hate and I CAN LAUGH because I have known sadness” #quoteoftheday #liveyourbestlife #learnfromthepast #liveinthepresent #planforthefuture #fridayfeels #transisbeautiful #girlslikeus 📸 by Michael Guske

Welcome to another installment of Zoey's adventures in #electrolysis. For those new here, I've had eight #laserhairremoval sessions and six hours of #galvanicelectrolysis. -- Today's adventure wasn't at my normal #electrologist as she's not yet approved on my #healthinsurance, but should be soon. Instead I went to the one my insurance would pay for. Sadly this wasn't multi-needle galvanic, but #thermolysis. -- What's the difference you might ask? Well, with thermolysis the tech can work a lot faster, but the failure rate is MUCH higher. Thankfully my woman has been doing this for a long time, so I hope it takes. You see, they need to hit the follicle just right with this type otherwise it does nothing. It's like shooting baskets with a blindfold on. If you're a pro you'll make more than you miss, but since you can't see, who knows. Some claim up to a 70% failure rate. -- And since I'm like most #transpeople, I'm not rich, therefore I can't drop the $400 every other week to continue the galvanic until my insurance approves it. Also my galvanic quote for initial clearing was under 50 hours. The quote for thermolysis was 100-150 hours. At two hours every other week, galvanic clears me in a year. At two hours EVERY week thermolysis clears me in a year to a year and a half. And I have to grow out the hair for 96 hours beforehand, which spikes my dysphoria. So another reason I'm leaning towards galvanic. But alas, I'll have to wait and just be glad insurances in California will cover such a procedure, as many #transwomen aren't as lucky. -- I'll continue to post healing pictures over the next couple days. And feel free to ask any questions about the process. -- #zr730 #day478 #girlslikeus #thisiswhattranslookslike #transisbeautiful -- Pic 1 is 96 hours growth without shaving Pic 2 is one hour in Pic 3 is after the two hour session Pic 4 is three hours after the session to show scabbing/healing
