F.A.Q. on Laser Hair Removal

DID YOU KNOW THAT a whooping 90% of Filipina women consider dark and unsightly underarms as their biggest source of anxiety and embarrassment?

Aside from the potential humiliation and the discomfort, compounding the underarm anxiety is the chicken skin syndrome, a product of constant tweezing, hair- pulling and shaving.

Finally, the solution to the problem is now here in Bohol.

Dr. Joyce Castillo, a Makati- based Boholana and Board- certified dermatologist who specializes in clinical and cosmetic dermatology and laser & dermatologic surgery and dedicated to the advancement of evidence-based and ethical medical practice particularly in cosmetic surgery & dermatology, has good news for Boholanas who have underarm anxiety.

Dr. Castillo, who also regularly guests in Radio DZMM’s top- rating “Magandang Gabi Dok” program, revealed that the Diode Laser Hair Removal technology is now available in Derma Doc Clinic at the Ramiro Community Hospital where she alternates with Dr. James Sombrio, noted Boholano dermatology specialist.

In collaboration with Derma Doc Clinic, this blog will have a seven- part weekly series that will address the most frequently- asked questions on Laser Hair Removal Treatment

“The series will happen starting today. For more detailed answers and for clinical appointments, just visit us at Derma Doc Clinic”, Dr. Castillo further intimated

The Most Frequently- Asked Questions on Diode Laser Hair Removal Treatment

Q # 1. Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
There is no laser that has received FDA clearance for a claim of permanent hair removal.

The Diode laser was the first to be cleared by the FDA for permanent hair reduction that is defined by the FDA as 85% or greater hair reduction.

It is possible that follicles in the treated area, while not being completely destroyed, will be sufficiently disabled to the point where they produce only fine, light hairs that do not respond to further treatment.

This is backed up by extensive clinical studies and you should be wary of anyone who claims otherwise.
Q # 2. Why use the Diode over other hair removal systems?
The laser is specifically designed for hair removal.

We have chosen this laser because of the extensive clinical research that demonstrates its effectiveness for permanent hair reduction.

Other Laser Hair Removal systems that we have investigated cannot make this claim.

We’ve used the Diode for hundreds of thousands of treatments, so we know it works and provides the kind of long term results that our patients have come to expect from us.
Next week, Dr. Castillo will talk on how the system works and will also touch on the safety issue
