My Transgender Hair Removal Journey: KetchBeauty IPL Handset Review

Hey everyone, it's Kayla Ward here, and today I want to share my personal experience with laser hair removal as a transgender woman.

I'll be reviewing the KetchBeauty IPL handset, which has been a game-changer in my hair removal journey. Let's dive right into it!



As someone who began her transition almost 10 years ago, one of the first things I wanted to tackle was getting rid of my facial hair.

Shaving every morning was a tedious task, and even if I wanted to go out at night, I had to shave again to get rid of the five o'clock shadow. It was frustrating and impacted my confidence.

Laser and electrolysis treatments were expensive, and I couldn't afford them back then.


Discovering At-Home Laser Kits:

About a year ago, my friend Carolina shared her positive experience with the KetchBeauty IPL handset on YouTube. I had seen at-home laser kits before but was skeptical about their effectiveness.

Carolina's recommendation gave me the confidence to try it myself. Luckily, KetchBeauty reached out to me a few months later, offering me the opportunity to review their product.

It was a blessing because living in LA is expensive, and every penny saved counts.


My Experience:

In March, I received the KetchBeauty IPL handset, and I must say, it exceeded my expectations. I want to emphasize that this review is entirely honest, and I am not being paid to say this.

Due to laser treatments, it was important to avoid direct sunlight, so I focused on using the handset on my bikini area. The results were impressive. The dark, thick, and coarse hair in that region was significantly reduced, eliminating razor burn and irritation.


Usage and Convenience:

Using the KetchBeauty IPL handset is simple. It requires being plugged into the wall, and there are different intensity settings to adjust as per your comfort level.

Starting off on a low setting helped me get accustomed to the sensation before gradually increasing it. The treatment is quick, taking only a minute per session.

However, consistency is key, and I admit that I sometimes forget to use it regularly.



Based on my experience, I highly recommend the KetchBeauty IPL handset to anyone struggling with unwanted hair. It has been effective and convenient, saving me time and money compared to expensive salon treatments.

The handset is suitable for all genders, and its versatility allows for targeting various body areas.

I'm excited to try it on my legs next, as winter approaches and direct sunlight exposure decreases.



As a transgender woman, I appreciate how supportive and inclusive the company is. They even have a dedicated page discussing transition and hair removal.

Thank you for joining me on this journey, and remember, you're not alone in your hair removal struggles. Much love to you all!
