ATLANTA, Nov. 12 Dr. Jay Kulkin, MD, internationally recognized laser expert and Fellow of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (highest designation), has successfully developed a laser technique making laser hair removal burns in ethnic skin types a thing of the past. For years, individuals with ethnic skin types have suffered needlessly with embarrassing, unwanted hair, as reports of burns (as seen on Oprah) have caused them to avoid laser procedures. Dr. Kulkin, Founder and Medical Director of WIFH, has developed a unique technique using the Cynosure Elite Yag Laser and has utilized it exclusively for over 30,000 procedures on all body types without one burn.
Laser hair removal is a medical procedure, which means it should be performed or overseen by a medical doctor with experience in laser technologies. Dr. Kulkin, with 23 years of laser experience, has spent the past seven years perfecting the YAG laser technique. Specifically, his approach utilizes unique power settings, pulse duration and frequency of laser pulses, as well as a protective cooling agent. The result is permanent hair reduction, ingrown hair bump reduction and pigmented blemish reduction, not to mention the restoration of self esteem in patients with hair in undesirable locations. Additionally, Dr. Kulkin has perfected the process so that his patients do not need to have initial test pulses to determine the appropriate laser and setting, a procedure that is common at many Medi-Spas that do not have his intensive training in the field. "We see patients from over 30 different countries, some coming after suffering burns elsewhere, and we are able to safely and effectively treat them all," says Dr. Kulkin.
After the prescribed number of sessions, Dr. Kulkin's innovative maintenance program to remove ingrown hairs with bumps and pigmentation in darker skin -- called Pseudofolliculitis Barbare -- has proven to maintain positive results for years. The procedure is virtually pain-free. Patients are aware of the laser, but over 90% of the procedures are performed using no topical anesthesia.
There is not a "one-size-fits-all" laser, and this is especially true for darker skin. The YAG laser is, however, the safest laser to treat ethnic skin types. Dr. Kulkin explains, "In very simple terms, this particular laser ignores the pigment present in the skin and only sees the pigment in the hair. Because it doesn't respond to the pigment in the skin, our patients can rest assured it is safe for their skin."
Dr. Kulkin's WIFH clinic boasts the most perfected and trusted techniques for laser hair removal. While many "Medi-Spas" offer the treatment, they may not have a doctor on site. Some Medi-Spas may have a doctor on site, but in all likelihood that doctor does not have extensive training in laser hair removal. However, at WIFH, each patient is under Dr. Kulkin's direct care. Dr. Kulkin and WIFH have performed over 90,000 laser hair removal procedures making him THE expert in Atlanta for proven results. For more information, please visit www.wifh.com.
