Walkins are welcome, but can not be guaranteed without at least a phone call. 2 electrologists available, and double treatments are available. We often treat the face and body simultaneously. Thermolysis, Galvanic, and Blend Modalities are available and used based on client need and preference. Probes/needles used are gold single use disposables, we also carry insulated, & non-insulated-stainless-steel for those with a preference for them. Electrologists wear masks & gloves. All consultations are free and are followed by 30 free minutes of actual electrology treatment. Certification and Training documents are openly displayed in the waiting room of the office.

Owner comment: "Executive Image Services and Executive Clearance Electrology is higly visible and has high reccomendations from Greater Buffalo's Trans Community, and other Alternative Lifestyle organizations. We have been asked to do radio show guest spots and interviews. We also do limited target marketing in weekly news papers and have plans to do some TV work in the near future."

Respondent 1: "Is very popular with the TS crowd in Buffalo. Better price if you do hours at a time. Does Genital clearing. "

Respondent 2: "I would like to say James Walker of Executive Image Services (in the Buffalo, NY area) is TG friendly and dedicated. I have had two other electrologists in the past and Mr. Walker is the most knowledgeable as well as using a machine that provides the most comfortable hair removal I have had to date. He has recently appeared at a Buffalo Belles monthly meeting to explain his service. At the current time, 6 Belles are using or have used his services. I have had 19 hours of work done by Mr. Walker and his partner and will continue working with him until I am finished."

Note from Andrea, author of tsroadmap: For many years, James has been a moderator and top contributor on my hair removal forum (hairtell.com). He's shown a real dedication to helping consumers with hair removal issues, and he is a huge ally of the trans community.


Affordable Electrolysis

Kenneth Hay/Chellis Fetzer. 420 W24th Street #1E, New York, NY 10011 212-727-1850. 2 electrologists. Hours: By appointment only, closed Sunday. $60.00/hr, 2 hrs. or more at one time,each hr. $55.00. Thermolysis: 100%. Probes available: disposable, insulated, straight, bulbous, gold-plated. Chosen through: advertisement. Free consultation with hairs treated for free. Certification displayed. Wears gloves. [1 TG ref, 98-06-23]

Respondent Comments: Both Kenneth and Chellis are gay men who are extremely kind, caring individuals. They make you feel at ease and comfortable. Their office is immaculately clean and very private. I highly recommend their services. They have been in business 12 years and they have many TG clients.


Electrolysis Centre of New York

Michelle Nicol Townline Road New York, NY (516) 265 2666. 6 electrologists. 8am to 9pm By appointment only, closed Sunday. $65/hr. Blocks available--Discuss with Michelle, she's very flexible. Thermolysis: 100%. Probes available: disposable, non-disposable, insulated, non-insulated, straight, gold-plated. Chosen through advertisement. Free consultation with hairs treated for free. Certification displayed. Wears gloves. [1 TG ref., 98-06-30]

Respondent Comments: Very friendly, helpful, and accomodating. However, I feel that my treatment time is a little longer than I would have liked. So far, I have had 260 hours of treatment and it is still taking me three hours per week to get clear. Overall, they are still one of the best in the area. I have worked with six different electrolgists in this organisation as I get the treatment through a barter arrangement. I usually take whoever is free, that way the technicians are making money when they would normally be waiting for a client. It also ensures that I don't take up time that could be used for paying customers.

How you chose your electrologist: TG referral: Yes Was consultation free? Yes Were hairs treated? Yes Were certification/training documents displayed? Yes 6. Please state your opinion about this electrologist: I've been going to Shelly for about 2 months now. She offers a free consultation & a free 30 minute treatment. She's very good at insertions, has reasonable rates, and always gives extra minutes. I'm a transwoman who is often anxious and shy around people but feel comfortable since she's also trans & very open about it & is always cheerful and welcoming. You get a sense that she truly genuinely cares about our community. My sideburns were a bushy hot mess...lol...she did a great job cleaning it up in one session. She's cleared my chin, neck, butt, belly, pubic region, and is now working on my legs. I'm simply amazed by how much hair she has cleared & how smooth my skin is now. Also, her place is clean & very private with a beautiful view of Manhattan. If you're LGBTQ (especially T) you will def. feel safe and at home.

Probes available: non-disposable, insulated, bulbous, gold-plated. Chosen through: research. Free consultation . Wears gloves

Respondent Comments: they use flexible probes give written guarantee as to how many treatments to clear area. Cleared bottom lip in 5 hrs-- written warranty was they could do it in 8. Tried many other electrologist in nyc using blend,therm.,& galvanic,alas repetive treatments no clearing.

Sent 25 January 2004:

i want to share some information that i believe is valuable for the tg community.

i am a 52 year old mtf pre-op. i have a long way to go, emotionally and physically, before i complete transition. however, i have overcome the obstacle of facial hair in a remarkably short time period. the usual pain associated with the treatment was greatly reduced, and managable with a mild pain reliever prescribed by my physician. i even fell asleep during the sessions.

i feel that my experience is so positive, that i must share the information with others in the tg community.

lucy peters in ny is one office of many nationwide. an internet search will locate their offices. the method, and the machine used, are exclusively the property of lucy peters. you do have lucy peters listed on your site. their method, and the skill of their operators, is remarkable. i know that they removed anywhere from 20-30 hairs every minute, and that the removal has been permanent. the rate was consistent over a period of hours. that would average out at 1200 to 1800 hairs removed per hour, or 7,200 to10,800 hairs for a standard 6 hour session.

i had previously received treatment using the galvanic method - about 15 years ago. the failure of the treatment to permanently remove the hair essentially stopped a previous attempt to transition. i gave up, and went into denial. i was able to grow a very full beard and moustache. that is essentially how i started treatment at lucy peters.

lucy peters is not cheap. you pay $65 for a half hour session. personally, i paid for full hours at $115 per hour. below is a schedule of dates and times i spent receiving treatment. cost up to now is approximately $3800.00, including taxes.

nov 22, 2003 - 6.5 hours, mostly neck
dec 6, 2003 - 4 hours, neck, 1/2 hour on upper lip
dec 11, 2003 - 6 hours, neck, lower jaw, 1/2 hour upper lip
jan 3, 2004 - 5 hours, lower jaw, neck maintenance, 1/2 hour upper lip
jan 17, 2004 - 4.5 hours, neck and jaw maintenance, upper chin, 1 hour upper lip - (lip cleared)
jan 24, 2004 - 6 hrs, after 1 week no shaving - 1 hour maintenance on lip, neck, jaw, and chin, strip both cheeks to hairline at ears.

the treatments cleared entire areas, leaving minor irritation and no scars. generally, saturday teatment was barely noticeable on mondays. calamine lotion dried and camoflaged treatment areas. by wednesday, the effects of the treatments were entirely gone. essentially, i have undergone the first clearing in under 40 hours. i will have to allow for longer periods of growth, perhaps two treatments at a month apart, at 4 hours each, before starting a "maintenance" schedule of treatment.

using lucy peters, the time spent obtaining results that a tg individual could live and work with has been drastically reduced from the time period you have previously estimated. I believe that your estimates are correct for "standard" electrologists, they just don't apply to lucy peters method. by the way, i understand that the team at "electrology 2000" are lucy peters trained. they branched out, and use novocaine to reduce pain. they supposedly offer similar results, but they do not have the machine used at lucy peters. i cannot speak about regrowth or anything else concerning their methods, but they were, supposedly, trained by the best - lucy peter's sister elaine.

in any event, the absence of pain and scarring, and the speed of treatment, make lucy peters more than worth the money.(by the way, i am not wealthy and am on a tight budget) mostly, the office caters to new york's wealthy (and famous) women. the management and staff are very friendly and professional, and have shown me the utmost courtesy and compassion as a transgender woman. one big problem is finding open time periods (particularly on weekends) for the extended treatment sessions that a transgender person would require. they are pretty fully booked months in advance. i don't believe the new york office could accomodate more than one transgended person in any given time period. i hesitated to share my experience for this reason. so i'm selfish! at this point, i feel i have gotten far enough along where i will not have to compete with another transgender person for time with the operators.

all said, i have had experience with other methods and electrologists. none compare. i don't work for lucy peters. they have been operating with their patented system for over 20 years. there is an alternative to conventional electrology, it really works, and tg women should be informed.

Joy S. Anzarouth, C.P.E. Board Certified Electrologist
315 West 55th Street Suite #LD New York, NY 10019 JoyanzyATaol.com (917) 670-6878

I am a board certified electrologist in New York City. I have been practicing for almost 12 years. Over the years I have treated some transgender clients successfully. I have always found my work very gratifying as I know what it meant to me to have a talented electrologist who was sensitive to my feelings about my unwanted hair.

I specialize in "difficult cases" - that is to say, hair that is particularly challenging. I am located in the theater district in New York City. My office is private and immaculate. Rates are negociable for on-going treatment.

Respondent comment: If anyone is looking for an electrolygist who is flexible, good humored, welcoming and socially conscious while at the same time being absolutely, scientifically perfect about getting rid of your unwanted hair… AND truly enjoys her job—Go see the very aptly named, Joy—She’s the BEST!!!
