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)

Linda was very thorough and took time with me rather than rush me like she couldn't wait to get to the next patient. I've had that experience before so I appreciated that.

Everyone was extremely welcoming, pleasant and professional. I felt very secure with the knowledge and professional, caring treatment by both the doctor and her assistant.

I have to say this was the most comfortable experience at any doctor office I have ever been to in my life. Dr. Ringpfeil is incredibly nice and compassionate. Lauren was super. The receptionists are very friendly. I now have a new dermatologist. Thanks!

I liked how they wanted to know about past experiences and history and seemed to take that into account and also thought outside the box. Very personable, friendly, yet right to the point.

I had an appointment for a consulation for sun damage. Unfortunately, I need to see either a doctor or PA for my issue and this was not included in my appointment, so I need to make another trip. It is difficult for me to carve time out of my work day to take care of personal needs, so this is creating an inconvenience for me. I would have preferred to had the complete consultation done in one appointment.

#62011-02-14 14:14:53

Everything was great

More convenient office hours for those who work during the day. Perhaps one evening?
