Electrolysis Hair Removal

Electrolysis overview: Electrolysis is a technique that uses electrical beam to target a vulnerable area in each hair follicle and destroys the follicle permanently.

Electrolysis - Pros:Unlike any type of laser hair removal device, Electrolysis is the only technique that can work effectively on all type of skins and hair types, including white hair, red hair, blond hair, and dark skin.

Effective as a "clean up" of sparse hair that regrew in the months following a laser hair removal treatment.

Electrolysis - Cons: As the technique targets one hair follicle at a time, treatment of large body area or treatment of dense hair areas, would take long.

Expected results: Permanent removal of hair.

Pretreatment: Hair must not be plucked or waxed for 4 weeks prior to treatment. Hair may be shaved and clipped close to the skin level until the evening before the treatment. Bleaching of hair is permitted.

Electrolysis - Post treatment: None

Time to desired results: Results are immediate. However, in dense hair area, multiple treatment might be needed as some hair follicle can be missed during the treatement.

Duration of desired effects: A targeted follicle will be destroyed permanently. However, at any point of time, there is dorman hair that was not visible during the treatment. This dormant hair will start the hair growing cycle after the treatment complete, and new hair will show up over time. "Touch up" session might be needed to remove this hair.

Contraindications: None

Downtime: None

What WE DID WELL

(Answers:674)

For an embarrassing situation, medical assistant and doctor made me feel comfortable...

#12019-07-01

Alana was wonderful. Her manner of dealing with patients is something to be admired.

#22011-11-30 11:47:43

How kind and attentive both Linda and Jenny were. I did not feel rushed and I did not feel pushed into buying products, which were two reasons I left the last practice I was using.

#32011-04-14 11:05:49

Dr. was very attentive to my needs and laid out the complete treatment plan, including what may or may not be covered by insurance.

#42018-09-06

The professionalism of the staff and doctor. Everyone was easy to talk to and my questions were answered.

The computer registration

I especially liked the friendliness of the staff and doctor. Also, this office is beautiful. I've never seen a doctor's office that compares with this one.

What can we do better?

(answers:373)

everything was beyond my expectations . No doctor has ever given me such a complete exam

#12010-10-07 10:02:42

The only downside is parking!

#22011-11-17 12:08:50

Overall excellent service. Friendly front desk staff. A very small suggestion would be to have someone immediately identify themselves as the person to register a new patient and direct where to go when someone enters the waiting room. With a big waiting room and three people at the front desk, it is a lot to take in and not know to whom to speak. Having had negative experiences with doctors' receptionists where all three of the three people at the front desk have ignored me until I called out and forced a response, I am sensitive to the issue and imagine others have had this experience as well.

#32011-01-31 10:42:48

Just continue your good work to keep your credibility in place.

#42010-10-12 10:33:59

Parking was a little tight.

#52011-06-09 15:52:46

#62011-02-22 09:25:17

Everything was great!

#72011-02-17 17:11:54

Just continue to be as thorough and caring as my experience today. Quite like a breath of fresh air!
