Ringpfeil Advanced Dermatology offers the safest, most cost-effective laser hair removal services in the Philadelphia area. Over the years, Ringpfeil has helped clients become hair-free by employing the latest in laser techniques and equipment. Lead by Dr. Franziska Ringpfeil, a board-certified and internationally renowned Dermatologist, Ringpfeil Dermatology continues to seek safer, more effective laser techniques to better serve their clientele.

Laser hair removal is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in the United States. It is the safest, most effective way to permanently remove unwanted hair in areas such as the face, legs, arms, and torso. Compared to temporary hair removal methods such as shaving or depilatory creams, laser hair removal has the best long-term benefits and is the most cost-effective. After each treatment, an average of 20-25% of hair follicles is permanently destroyed, which translates to a 90% hair reduction after just three sessions. Clients also report a noticeable reduction in the thickness and density of hair growth after undergoing a single procedure.

Better Results with Fewer Treatments

What sets Ringpfeil Advanced Dermatology apart is their continued commitment to providing the best service for their clients. In order to deliver top professional results, they use two different state-of-the-art lasers for light skin and dark skin. For clients with light skin (skin types I, II and III), Dr. Ringpfeil uses the Candela Gentle-Lase Alexandrite Laser. For African American, Indian and dark-skinned clients the Candela ND: Yag is used. Having two different types of hair removal lasers gives Dr. Ringpfeil great client range as she can perform the procedure on almost anyone who is seeking laser hair removal in Philadelphia.

The Most Cost-Effective Choice for Hair Removal

Ringpfeil Advanced Dermatology’s commitment to safety, quality and client satisfaction is what sets them apart from competitors. The availability of top of the line laser equipment and the presence of a well-trained team enables Ringpfeil Advanced Dermatology to deliver professional hair-removal results with fewer treatments. Furthermore, Ringpfeil Advanced Dermatology offers the lowest prices amongst medical spas in Philadelphia, the Main Line and Delaware. In addition, clients are not locked into multiple-treatment packages because our hair-removal experts understand that not everyone needs multiple treatments.

Risks Associated With Laser Hair Removal

When performed by a board-certified laser hair removal specialist, risks are minimal. However, side effects may include skin irritation, redness, swelling or temporary discomfort after laser hair removal.

Expected results

People with light skin and dark hair typically lose 40%-50% of the hair after each treatment. Over 90% of the hair is eliminated within 4-6 treatments. People with darker skin and dark hair need additional treatments.

Using the Nd:YAG laser, 6-8 treatments are usually needed to remove 90% of the hair when skin is darker and the hair is dark.

Facial hair compared to hair on other parts of the body is usually finer and easier to treat. 2-4 treatments, using alexandrite or diode laser, are often sufficient for light skin types, and 4-6 treatments, using Nd:YAG, are usually sufficient for darker skin types.

Maintenance treatments are needed between once every 6 months to 3 years because our body keeps some of our hair follicles in a dormant state. In this state, the laser cannot damage the follicle as it does not contain pigment.

1. Better Results in Fewer Treatments

  • Unlike most providers who use "a laser that treats all skin types" we have multiple lasers and we use the most effective laser for your skin type.
  • Having a dermatologist on site and the experience that our staff has enabled us to use the most aggressive setting for faster results without increasing risk to you.

2. Lowest Overall Cost

  • Our price per treatment is among the lowest in Philadelphia, Mainline, and the Delaware Valley.
  • As a medical office, we do not accept tips. This saves you an additional 10%-20% of the cost.
  • We deliver your desired results in fewer treatments - saving you additional money (and time).
  • You get our low price without the need to be locked in multiple treatment packages. You might not need all the treatments.

3. Safety and Experience

  • A Dermatologist is ALWAYS on site.
  • Our staff has treated over 10,000 patients since 1996.
  • We do not employ technicians who have trained for a weekend before seeing their first patient.

It is safe to say that all of us, some more than others, suffer from unwanted hair on our face, neck, and body. This unwanted hair growth can occur due to heredity, hormonal levels, and certain drugs.

Who can benefit from Permanent Hair Removal?

Usually, hair growth is desirable; however, when the hair is on the wrong part of your body i.e. a woman's upper lip or chin as well on your hands or arms then you may be considering the help of permanent hair reduction.

There are several methods of hair reduction available, both temporary and permanent.

Temporary Hair Removal

Temporary methods of hair removal are achieved through depilation (removal of the hair above the skin's surface) and epilation (removing the entire hair). Depilation refers to methods such as shaving and creams that chemically dissolve the hair. Epilation refers to methods such as tweezing and waxing. These methods remove unwanted hair for a period of a few weeks.

Permanent Hair Removal - Laser

Laser hair removal is the most effective method for permanent hair reduction. Laser hair reduction works well on dark hair in people of all skin types. On average, 20-25% of hair follicles are permanently destroyed after each laser treatment, leading to about 50-70% reduction after three treatments and about 80-90% reduction after six treatments.

The remainder of the hair then becomes finer and lighter. However, the most common misconception about permanent hair reduction is that a series of laser treatments destroy all hair when in reality some hair follicles are dormant at the time of treatment and are able to produce hair at a later stage.

For near complete hair removal, periodic maintenance treatments can be performed.

Pre and Post Permanent Hair Removal Instructions

If you are planning to undergo permanent laser hair reduction, the hair must not be plucked or waxed for four weeks prior to treatment.

Once the treatment has been administered, you should avoid long periods in direct sunlight for six weeks.

#12018-10-03

I liked the relaxing atmosphere, and the service. All the women were wonderful, and the doctor- especially- was friendly, and very helpful. I did not feel at all uncomfortable or nervous, as I normally do at a doctors visit. The assistant was wonderful, and they worked great as a team. The visit was painless, quick, and very easy. Thank you! I'll certainly be back and recommend this office to my friends and family as well. :)

#22019-05-27

My visit was very professional. I walked in and was assisted with emmediately. I am very happy with the service that was given to me today. I will gladly return.

Dr Ringfell was very attentive to my problem. She reviewed my medical history throughly unlike any other physician that I have met before. I felt that she aswered to all my questions with extreme knowledge and confidence. I am leaving my appointment today reasured that she will find the right diagnosis to my problem.

Nothing that I could think of would be better.

Very satisfied. Should get an office in Cherry Hill, NJ

#22019-08-16

Maybe directions as "across from the Lexus place." Have the assistant say there may be a name recall test later, as she introduces herself.

#82010-12-07 10:07:04

Almost too methodical - thought of one more 15 second type question after Dr. left re one spot not noted - would have waited some time to have her look at it. Told no time until lunch.
