“It takes a hairy person to love this job,” says Jennifer Kandemir, the force behind Advanced Derma Laser. After years of being told laser removal wasn’t an option for darker skin (she’s Trinidadian), the former Elizabeth Arden and Warren Tricomi cosmetologist made it her mission to find a solution. Her impressive personal results inspired her to open this tidy, more comfortable than clinical Madison Avenue office. Kandemir and her team of technicians use the long-pulse CoolGlide ND:YAG machine to treat women of all colors with virtually painless sessions, while the Mini GentleLASE and Cutera XEO base with laser genesis for underarm, face, bikini, and leg hair removal are used on dark-haired women (blondes, redheads, and the silver-haired can’t partake) and those with hormone imbalances. Men looking for a smooth back, chest, and razor-bump-free face are seen by in-house internist Dr. Yagudin, and everyone finishes with a soothing, redness-preventing application of Vita-K. Most areas require at least six sessions done every six weeks, with follow-ups for maintenance.
