Laser hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States. It offers a safe and effective way to permanently remove unwanted hair, with each treatment destroying an average of 20-25% of hair follicles. This translates to a 90% reduction in hair growth after just three sessions. Clients also report a noticeable reduction in the thickness and density of hair growth after undergoing a single procedure. Laser hair removal is the most cost-effective method of permanent hair removal available, making it a great choice for those looking for long-term results.
What sets Ringpfeil Advanced Dermatology apart is their continued commitment to providing the best service for their clients.

Risks Associated With Laser Hair Removal
When performed by a certified specialist, laser hair removal is safe. However, side effects may include temporary discomfort, skin irritation, redness, or swelling. If you experience any of these side effects, please contact your specialist.
People with light skin and dark hair typically lose 40%-50% of their hair after each treatment. However, over 90% of the hair is usually eliminated within 4-6 treatments. People with darker skin and dark hair generally require additional treatments.
Using the Nd: YAG laser, 6-8 treatments are typically needed to remove 90% of the hair when the 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. For light skin types, 2-4 treatments using an Alexandrite or diode laser are often sufficient. For darker skin types, 4-6 treatments using an Nd:YAG laser are usually sufficient.
Maintenance treatments, which may be needed every 6 months to 3 years, help keep some of our hair follicles in a dormant state. In this state, the laser cannot damage the follicle as it does not contain pigment.
It's no secret that many of us suffer from unwanted hair growth on our face, neck, and body. This can be due to heredity, hormones, or certain medications. No matter the cause, unwanted hair can be frustrating and embarrassing.
There are times when hair growth is unwanted, such as on a woman's upper lip or chin. Other times, it may be desired, such as on the head or arms. If you're considering reducing the amount of hair on your body permanently, there are a few options available to you, both temporary and permanent.
Temporary methods of hair removal work by either depilating (removing the hair above the skin's surface) or epilating (removing the entire hair). Depilation typically refers to methods like shaving and creams that chemically dissolve the hair. Epilation, on the other hand, usually refers to methods like tweezing and waxing. These methods can remove unwanted hair for a period of a few weeks.
Laser hair removal is the most effective method of permanent hair reduction. It works well on dark hair in people of all skin types, with each treatment destroying 20-25% of hair follicles permanently.
On average, this leads to a 50-70% reduction after three treatments and an 80-90% reduction after six treatments. The hair then becomes progressively finer and lighter with each treatment. Some hair follicles, however, can remain dormant and produce hair at a later stage.
For near-complete hair removal, periodic maintenance treatments may be necessary.
If you are planning to undergo permanent laser hair reduction, you must avoid plucking or waxing your hair for four weeks prior to treatment.
Once the treatment is done, you should also avoid long periods of direct sunlight exposure for six weeks.
