I spoke to Jennifer Kandemir, owner and founder of Advanced Derma Laser Tech, about laser hair removal and its benefits.
Jennifer began her career as a hair colorist in prestigious salons such as John Frieda and Warren Tricomi. After an unfortunate and scarring experience with laser hair removal, Jennifer set out to find a safe and effective laser for women of color. Some lasers are unsafe, as Jennifer found out personally, because the laser is attracted to darker pigment. This is also why it is not safe to get laser treatments when you have a tan. Jennifer found two lasers that she uses in her office: the Cutera Nd: YAG laser for women with darker complexions and the Alexandrite by Candela Gentle Laser for lighter complexions.
Here are the most important reasons men and women choose laser hair removal: whether you have unwanted leg, arm, bikini, or facial hair, it is a life-long issue and affects self-esteem. The investment in laser hair removal is less than the cost of a lifetime of waxing and shaving. Laser results in permanent removal of unwanted hair. Hair is usually gone after six treatments, though in some cases patients may need maintenance treatments for stubborn areas. Laser hair removal can finally get rid of ingrown hairs or bumps caused by plucking, waxing and shaving.
