The Undisclosed Truth on Laser Hair Removal

April 28th, 2010 Dr. Kridel

Dr. Russell Kridel was consulted by Amanda Koehler for Healthy Aging and this week on his expertise with laser hair removal:

“To clear the body of unwanted hair, women have used just about everything: razors, hot wax and even chemical depilatories.

All of these solutions, while successful, need to be repeated to get results. Now, many medical spas and physicians offices are promising more permanent hair reduction with laser treatment. Providing a more long-standing solution, laser hair removal comes with some caveats, nonetheless.”

Amanda Koehler spoke with Houston Plastic Surgeon Dr. Kridel to learn more about laser hair removal, including costs and what to expect from a procedure that promises to rid the body of unsightly hair.

Coctail reception for the Face Foundation

The Face Foundation provides needed surgery to previous victims of abuse who are sponsored by these organizations:  The National Coalition for Domestic Violence, The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the Face to Face Program.

The Face Foundation strives to obtain hospitals, nurses and anesthesiologists to donate their time, expertise, rooms and care needed for surgery. Yet, donations are always welcome to fund the costs of recovery, prescription drugs and printed educational material concerning reconstructive surgery and domestic violence that are not always cost-free.
