From May 4, 2012 on Kathie Lee and Hoda, a show I don't watch:


Q.†What is more effective, laser hair removal or electrolysis? †
A.††Laser hair removal is permanent; electrolysis is not. Both take forever and electrolysis is more painful, too.

This answer was given by a dermotologist, Dr. Jeanine Downie from New Jersey.

Genius answer number two:

Q.†The hair I want to get rid of is blonde. They tell me that laser removal wonít work on blonde hair. What is the best method to remove it?
A. Laser is unreliable on blonde hair. Patch test on one area for four months before you decide. Otherwise, threading, waxing and sugarin[/b]g all work.

The link. Watch it while it is still up. http://klgh.today.msnbc.msn.com/_news/20...s-answered?lite

Unreliable? Her answer is MISLEADING. LASER WON'T WORK ON BLOND HAIR. Not one mention of electrolysis from the good doctor? How is this helpful information for hair removal viewers watching NBC? If a physician with a laser practice gives you, the consumer, these kind of answers, do not trust them. Do not give them your money. Beware of fraudulent, self-serving, dispicable statements like these. More proof that most doctors are ignorant about the details of hair removal, but don't worry, we have your back covered at HairTell. We will always tell you the truth.

The FDA disagrees.

Kind of makes one wonder about her other medical opinions...

This is all you need to know:

Thanks for getting involved, Brenton. We, electrologists are not very powerful. We have trouble combating these lies. The AEA is trying their hardest to make a difference, but it is so helpful when consumers spread correct, first-hand information to their doctors and show them that electrolysis worked for you.

Well now this is interesting.

"Laser hair removal only works on light brown and darker hair. If your facial hair is blonde or gray, laseringís probably not an option for you," says Jeanine Downie, a dermatologist in Montclair, New Jersey.
