body hair removal - Patients ask, Dr. Ringpfeil answers
Please feel free to use the blog below to share information about body hair removal or to ask Dr. Franziska Ringpfeil a question that might be of interest to others.
In recent years we notice more men are interested in permanently removing their body hair. The most common body area for men are the back, chest, and abdomen.
Women, on the other hand, usually treat the breast area, areola, and the naval line.
The skin in the bikini area is extremely sensitive.Traditional methods of hair removal are painful and can cause nicks and ingrown hair.
Laser hair removal, on the other hand, is very effective in removing hair in the biki, pubic, and thighs area. After 4-6 treatments over 90% of the hair is permanently removed. In some cases, maintenance treatments are needed once every 6 months to 3 years.
I have Type 1 Diabetes & use an insulin pump which must be replaced & relocated about every 2.5 days. I am a 66 yo male & would like to remove unwanted hair from my upper arms, abdomen, buttocks & thighs. Can this be achieved safely & at reasonable cost by your method? Thank you.
Laser hair reduction is safe when you control your diabetes with insulin. Pricing in our office is extremely competitive.
Do you offer gift certificate packages such as 6 treatments for laser hair removal? Wanting to give it as a Christmas present. Thank you.
Our fees for laser hair removal are low and therefore we do not offer treatment packages.
Hi Dr. Ringpfeil!
My question is about the bikini area electrolysis. What are the prices for a 30 and 60 minutes treatment? How much time is needed (an average) to remove hair on the whole bikini zone (I mean just the first round of removing hair)? Thank you very much!
Electrolysis is an ideal technique for patches of gray or white hair on the face or the occasional stray gray hair. In my opinion, it is unsuitable to use on large areas, because every hair follicle has to be treated singly. The bikini area is therefore not an area that lends itself to electrolysis. It would take innumerable number of sessions to remove all hair from the bikini area. In order to avoid this kind of frustration, we do not offer electrolysis in this area.
