Laser Hair Removal FAQ’s
Q: Can lasers remove white or blonde hairs?
A: Lasers cannot remove white or blonde hairs.
Q: Can permanent removal happen in one treatment?
A: Permanent removal of hair requires several treatments. One treatment will remove all of the hair, but not permanently. With each treatment, fewer hairs will grow back and the hairs that do will be lighter and thinner.
Q: How long do I have to stop waxing/plucking/shaving before the laser hair removal?
A: You cannot wax or pluck for two weeks before the procedure, but you may shave. The reason is that our target is the hair follicle, which is deep beneath the surface of the skin. Cutting or shaving the hair does not affect the follicle, whereas waxing or plucking pulls out (part of) the hair follicle, and leaves us without a target.
Q: What about sun exposure? Do I need to stay in the shade here in the Hollywood area after laser hair removal treatment?
A: If you avoid the sun, you will get more “bang for your buck”. If the area that is being treated with the laser is tan, we must adjust the settings accordingly. This often entails decreasing the energy, and that decreases effectiveness. So if you want to achieve permanent hair removal in the fewest number of treatments, keep the area that you are treating, out of the sun.
Q: Will laser hair removal help with razor burn, bumps and ingrown hairs?
A: Razor bumps and ingrown hairs are eliminated after the first or second treatment.
Laser hair removal is simply the most remarkable and effective technology for permanently removing hair or treating ingrown hairs. But lasers are powerful machines, so have a certified expert perform the treatment.
How does laser hair removal work?
How does laser hair removal work? The simplest explanation is that the laser targets a specific color. The brown or black hair heats up and is vaporized while the surrounding white skin remains untouched. Does this mean that we cannot remove hair from black skin? Actually, we can.
The reason for this is somewhat more complicated, but simply put, the laser selects its target not only based on color, but also on size. So the large hair follicles are heated while the small skin cells remain cool, even if they are brown as well. Any skin color can be treated (with the correct laser), but not every hair color.
Fact #1 – Lasers cannot remove white or blonde hairs.
Fact #2 – Permanent removal of hair requires several treatments. One treatment will remove all of the hair, but not permanently. With each treatment, fewer hairs will grow back and the hairs that do will be lighter and thinner.
Fact #3 – You cannot wax or pluck for two weeks before the procedure, but you may shave.
The reason is that our target is the hair follicle, which is deep beneath the surface of the skin. Cutting or shaving the hair does not affect the follicle, whereas waxing or plucking pulls out (part of) the hair follicle, and leaves us without a target.
Fact #4 – If you avoid the sun, you will get more “bang for your buck”. If the area that is being treated with the laser is tan, we must adjust the settings accordingly. This often entails decreasing the energy, and that decreases effectiveness. So if you want to achieve permanent hair removal in the fewest number of treatments, keep the area that you are treating, out of the sun.
Fact #5 – Razor bumps and ingrown hairs are eliminated after the first or second treatment.
How much does laser hair removal cost?
Some prices (prices are for one treatment session)*:
|Lip and chin||$175-200|
*These prices are approximate. You will receive an exact price from the doctor when he evaluates you and decides which ¨laser to use during your free consult.
Do you offer packages?
The problem with packages is that you are locked in. We do not offer packages because every person is different and we do not know exactly how many treatments you will need. The problem with a lot of the “chain” hair removal places is that you can ONLY get a package. You can’t pay for just one treatment to see if you like it. What if you don’t like the technician? What if you don’t do well with their lasers? What if they go out of business? We don’t try to lock you in to a package. We know that if you try our office once, you will stay with us.
What if I am undecided about where to go?
Try a few places. We think that an educated consumer who has been to other places is our best customer. You will see the difference. We have knowledgeable and experienced doctors. We have the best lasers for each skin type. And we are an established operation. Our practice started in Hollywood in 1976. Try us first, before you get locked into a package at one of the “chain” hair removal centers.
REAL PATIENTS, REAL COMMENTS
It was difficult finding a professional dermatologist office that first focused on clinical issues and then went on to the cosmetic options. Everyone in the office is pleasant and helpful.
My appointments are always right on time . I would recommend this office to anyone needing a dermatologist, male or female.
I love this place for the reason I have two big brown spots on my face that I been covering up for three years. I’ve been going to spas to do facial and all they did was more damaged. I go to Minars one time and the Dr was very nice to me explained what I had and gave me a cream for my spots , its been 3 weeks and it’s working, it’s fading. I still have more to go but for the first time I don’t have to wear so much make-up in this FL heat. i feel good again. The place is nice they took my insurance and I paid my copayment. I will go back and tell my friends about this place.
I love this place! The staff is very helpful and friendly. When I make my appointments I don’t have to wait for more than one or two minutes before they call my name. I would definitely recommend this place! And Diane Muzic is the best esthetician in the world!
Amazing staff and doctors. I was referred by a friend and will never go anywhere else!
This office is very well organized. There is almost no wait time. The staff are very friendly and professional. I saw Dr Norman Minars who is both very experienced and personable. The procedure was quick and almost painless. I’d definitely come back for future dermatological needs.
As a parent you look for kindness and confidence when having your children treated. This is what I found with Minars. Both of my children see Dr. Huo and we couldn’t be more happy with the results each time. I have recommended this place several times and am surprised by the reviews on Yelp. I have never had a problem and will continue to recommend Minars to others.
I have been going to Diane for my laser hair removal treatments on my bikini and lip , and I have to say that the results are amazing. She’s very knowledgable and knows what she’s doing, makes the process quick and easy. So far I’ve had 3 treatments and my hair has slowed the growth rate down to 3 1/2 months at a time without hair! Amazing !! Completely happy with my results and I can’t wait to continue my journey to hair free .The office is clean and welcoming.
I just had a quick skin check, so can’t comment much in depth. I liked how up to date they are with technology- you can email your insurance card to them. Some places are still weird about having it on your phone.
Everyone was pleasant and I was seen on time. Practicioners name I forget, started with an M, but she was really nice and put my mind at ease on some suspicious moles.
Keeping an eye on the billing as I read some reviews on here about overbillling. Will update if necessary. They did call before to let me know my insurance had been flagged- which makes no sense as its been accepting claims fine all month.
Love the office staff, the efficiency and the professionalism. We have been patients for close to ten years and it’s been an all-around excellent experience, from acne care to electrolysis.
I have been going to Dr. Todd Minars for several years now, and have always received nothing but the most friendly, professional and timely services. Their office is immaculate and very nicely decorated in the waiting area. Going to the dermatologist isnt always the most fun thing to do, but the whole staff at Minars Dermatology makes you feel welcome and comfortable. Thank you Dr. Todd for always being on the cutting edge of your field… I will always trust you with my skincare needs!
I have been going to Minars Dermatology quite frequently the last few months. I have had appts with Dr.Todd and Tracy for different reasons. They were both professional and knowledgeable. I have also seen Diane (Aesthetician) and she is great. The office staff is pleasant. I’ve never had any problems with Minars Dermatology. I for sure recommend them.
Had a great visit with “Minars Dermatology”. The office was beautiful, clean and modern. The staff was very friendly. Dr. Todd Minars took his time and was friendly and thorough. Great experience! I brought my six year old to see him. Very warm and friendly, took the time to make my child feel comfortable. I highly recommend “Minars Dermatology”. Will definitely be back!
Dr Todd is a wonderful doctor and a caring human being. He makes time for all his patients (even the last minute calls). His office is incredibly efficient. Excellent care.
Fantastic office with a great staff! Appointments are always on time, and the doctors are very nice & professional. This is a very well run office and your questions are always answered patiently and thoroughly. I’ve never had a bad experience here and highly Recommend them for any of your dermatology needs!
A+ doctors, A+ facility, A+ staff, A+ service. I’m so happy I found this place. I’m extremely picky when it come to doctors but this place has greatly exceeded my expectations. My doctor is Dr. Todd Minars, he’s very knowledgeable and left me impressed with the way he approached and treated my skin condition.
Also, I was interested in some skin cosmetics (laser) and he and his dad (Norman Minars) were able to coach me on the treatment. They are both dermatology professors at University of Miami; it can’t get better than this.
I first started with Dr. Todd but then continued with Diane and she’s amazing. She replies quickly to the emails when making appointments. Good thing about this place is that you don’t have to be tied down to a package like other laser removal places.
I have never seen a dermatologist on a regular basis but now I am so happy I now have one that I trust for amazing service, true understanding of what I need and a clean, welcoming office. The staff are super attentive from when you walk in the door to when you check out. I have seen Dr. Todd for both skincare and anti aging needs. He was conservative yet thoughtful and understanding when it came to making recommendations. I really appreciated all of the time he took with me and how he explained step by step what he wanted to do. For someone new to getting Botox, he made me feel completely comfortable and the results are amazing. I can’t wait to go back!
I am super happy and recommend that anyone looking for dermatologist check out Minars Dermatology.
This is a fantastic place with top notch doctors. Dr Minars is extremely knowledgeable, quick to diagnose and help with solutions. Even has great sense of humor. I highly recommend him for your dermatological needs.
I’ve been going to Dr. Todd for about 4 years. He is absolutely awesome. He is very knowledgeable and thorough. He has spotted things that have required removal and referred me to the proper doctors in the office for moes surgery. The office is the most efficient office I have ever seen. I have never waited more than 5 minutes to see the doctor.
I was very pleased with the services I received. The office is clean, and the staff has accommodated me at the last minute. Dr Todd Minars is very knowledgeable and thorough. Dr Vivas is also very sweet and answers all my questions without making me feel hurried. She’s even prescribed a compound cream that has markedly improved my skin.
Excellent – professionalism all around! From doctor to front desk. Absolutely will return & recommend your office to others! Thanks!
Best run medical practice in South Florida in my opinion..I am a retired physician knowing what to look for when I require my own care.I have referred my family & friends to drs Todd & Norman Minars without hesitation.The staff is friendly & courteous and the doctors don’t make you feel rushed.A+++++++
