Electrolysis

Overview: An electrical beam is sent to a vulnerable area in each hair follicle which destroys the follicle permanently. This technique can be used in white, red or dark hair and may be the only permanent option when the first two colors prevail. In dark haired areas with the occasional white hair, electrolysis is often chosen to complete the clean look after laser hair reduction.

Expected results: Permanent removal of hair in all skin and hair colors.

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

Post treatment instructions: None

Time to desired results: Immediate. Depending on the density of hair, many treatments may be necessary to achieve satisfactory results as each follicle must be treated separately.

Duration of desired effects: Permanent. Periodic maintenance treatment can be added as needed when previously dormant hair follicles are producing hair again.

Contraindications: None

Downtime: None

I am very impressed with Dr. Ringpfeil. She took the time to answer all my questions. I never felt rushed. I would recommend her to everyone I know.

Dr. Ringpfeil is extremely knowledgeable about her field. She also put me at ease immediatley and made me feel quite at home. I will definatley return once a year for her to check me. Her assistant and the receptionists were most helpful and very nice and more than happy to comply with their patients' wishes. Should anyone be searching for a dermatologist, I highly recommend Dr. Ringpfeil.

Nothing missing.

#32021-11-17

Nothing that I could think of would be better.

#42021-10-06

maybe classical music on the radio? and some hunting and fishing magazines for the men. but the waiting period is so short it may not matter

#52010-11-08 11:23:38

My advice would be to continue doing exactly what you are presently doing. I had a very good first impression of Dr. Ringpfeil and the practice. Thank you.

#62011-02-07 10:50:14

?water cooler in the waiting room?

#72021-02-21

I am a little annoyed that I called to say I was on my way and I was told that I may not get here in time and will probably have to reschedule. Then when I got here, I filled out the paperwork then had to wait 20 minutes to be seen. It would be nice to know the receptionist's name so I know who I am calling when I have questions. It would be nice to have WiFi available during the wait.

#82011-06-22 17:06:20

You were amazing

#92010-09-28 09:24:38

Keep up the thinks you are doing....
