Who benefits from Laser Hair Removal?

We have seen firsthand from thousands of patients how frustrating and inconvenient unwanted, excess hair can be. The upkeep can be annoying and painful– you are consistently exposing your skin to irritation caused by temporary hair removal products. 

Whether you are using razors, hot wax, creams, or another form of hair removal, you are likely still not happy with the results despite the routine work and side effects you’re experiencing trying to get rid of the unwanted hair. 

It’s time to say goodbye to the itch, burn, pain, and stubble. 

We understand that finding a provider that you trust for laser hair removal can be intimidating at first. There are many practices and facilities to choose from as well as brands of laser hair removal treatment. With so many choices, it can be overwhelming. 

It’s important to find a provider that has the knowledge and experience of how to effectively treat hair and skin. Our dermatologist-led team understands what it takes to provide excellent patient care as we treat hundreds of patients with Primelase.

What makes Primelase special as a Laser Hair Removal treatment?

Primelase is long lasting and is one of the most effective diode laser hair removal treatments on the market. It’s fast and effective– its high power energy safely targets the hair follicles directly on the face and body without irritating your skin.  Primelase was developed by the Cocoon laser company.  An almost identical device in the United States is being sold and marketed as BareHR. In addition to the Primelase we also use the Lumenis LightSheer Diode laser.  With more than one device, we can truly tailor the treatment to the individual.

You won’t have to wait until winter to start these treatments either like most laser hair removal devices. Primelase works on all skin types and all year-round. Although these lasers can be used to treat patients with a tan we advise against this practice. Your treatments will be far more effective and safer when we treat untanned skin.

There are many additional advantages to the Primelase laser hair removal treatments:

  • The Primelase system targets pigment in the hair follicle and not the skin, causing actual cells to be destroyed that are responsible for the growth
  • Targets all areas of the body including hard-to-reach areas of all sizes
  • No downtime
  • Primelase treatments guarantee safety, speed, and effectiveness in all sessions
  • Cold technology ensures comfortable treatments while your skin is protected
  • Primelase laser hair removal treatments are so effective that you will rarely need to use another form of hair removal again
  • Long-lasting results save on expensive hair removal creams, razors, and waxes

Primelase can safely, effectively, and quickly treat the following areas of the body:

  • Arms
  • Face 
  • Bikini Area
  • Underarms
  • Chest
  • Back

Primelase progressively eliminates active follicles permanently through successive sessions, and this treatment is effective at eliminating residual hair left over from other laser hair removal treatments.

Primelase best suits any and all unique needs of each individual. It maximizes the results without compromising the integrity and health of your skin by selectively heating and cooling the pigment in the hair follicles while avoiding the skin.

What are some expectations of Primelase Laser Hair Removal treatments?

Some things you can expect before, during, and after treatments:

  • The team will give you a consultation first creating a customized treatment plan for you
  • The Primelase hair removal treatment shouldn’t be painful although some patients may experience some discomfort related to the heat producedDuring the treatment, the laser operator checks in with you about your comfort and parameters can be adjusted to ensure satisfaction and best results

We are a medically-led practice and will ensure you feel comfortable and that you are being walked through each step of the treatment process. It’s our top priority to make sure we are giving extraordinary patient care. 

Our Philosophy

“Our practice philosophy is simple — to deliver the very best care we can in the very best way we can. To us, that means we make each and every patient feel welcomed from the moment that they walk in the door until they leave the office. It means that we listen to what the patient has to say and address those concerns. It means we give advice and recommend treatments based on our extensive training with leaders in the field, our wealth of personal experience, and our commitment to excellence. For our cosmetic patients, it means working with the patient to achieve results that look natural, not overdone or exaggerated. It means that we always strive to do the right thing for the patient, as we value very highly ethics, honesty, and integrity. It means we stand behind what we do and will do everything in our power to get the best results we can for the patient. It means we carefully select the highest quality staff to represent us and help us carry out these goals. Lastly and most importantly, it means that we treat the patient the way we would want ourselves to be treated, with respect and kindness. Because at the end of the day, without all of our loyal patients, we wouldn’t have a practice.”

Extremely caring

"He saved my life! Literally! I've been seeing Dr. Potozkin for over 20 years and I wouldn't trust anyone else with my skin. I had melanoma 20 years ago and he took care of me and just recently I had it again. And might have more, but I'm waiting on the results. But if I do, I am confident that Dr Potozkin and his highly trained staff will take care of me. He is the best in his field. Everyone on his staff is so caring and helpful. I feel so comfortable when I'm there. So please, if you have any skin concerns, make an appointment, don't delay, your life may depend on it."

Efficient & Professional

"Dr. Potozkin and his team are the best! My skin issues/problems have drastically improved since I have been coming to this Doctor-over 5, maybe even 10 years. His staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The office is a flagship store that sells my favorite skin repair and healing products- by SkinCeuticals. I don’t live near this office, but I would never go anywhere else even if it’s closer. Absolutely worth the trip. The results are real!"
