My favorite laser quotes.

These statements I heard first hand … not in print or rumor. Dr. Perkins, the plastic surgeon I used to work with, had purchased a laser “for me to use” and we went to a seminar by the dermatologist that invented laser hair removal. He also has THE authoritative book on the subject (actually a great book). I don’t think I’d better say his name. Anyway, here are the unforgettable quotes from Dr. “G.”

1) "The best patient for laser hair removal would be a corpse: the skin is pure white and the hairs black … and, you can certainly guarantee permanent results."

2) "Doctors, if you want to be in business for 5 more years, NEVER use the word 'permanent' with laser hair removal. Somehow, the hairs usually manage to grow back.”

I really couldn’t believe my ears. I also talked to the derm., about potential “aging” of dermal fibroblasts from laser and he said: “I had not considered that effect, but you could be right.” Old fibroblasts = more wrinkles. Welcome to the brave new world!

I want to emphasize one thing. I am a strong proponent of LASER hair reduction. I send my clients, when appropriate, to laser specialists who are highly ethical and highly skilled. I am a strong defender of electrolysis, not because it is my livelihood and passion, but because I never have to apologize, make excuses or disappoint people about the outcome . It works and I am proud to be hugged and elevated to goddess status when the end of the journey comes and the depressed hairy woman is no longer chasing hairs in the bathroom mirror every morning.

When grossly false statements are made about electrolysis by the Jeanine Downie's of the world, I'm there to focus in on such unethical lies. Both modalities are helpful and can work well in combination. That's what I care about and feel very uncomfortable putting on the uniform of support for one side or the other.

How can Downie's words be grabbed back after they have already been released over the air waves? This is not good for her credibility and sucker punching is not a good strategy for a woman scientist of medicine.

Hello there. Thanks for peeking in. Not necessarily to your first question. Shaving did not cause hair to grow on your chest. Is that what you are implying?

I think what she wants to know is that, while facial hairs may take many treatments over a course of 18 to 24 months to complete a job, body hairs can be done with less treatment frequency (assuming full clearances) and with fewer complete clearances.
