Laser Hair Removal
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Diolaze® safely and gently eliminates unwanted hair with our advanced laser treatment by reaching the root of hair follicles. Our hair removal technology covers a large treatment area, making treatments convenient and fast. Even better, most patients report little to no pain, due to 3PC Cooling (before, during, and after cooling) which provides the patient comfort. During laser treatment, a diode laser beam is targeted toward the hair follicles. The penetrating energy then heats up the root of the hair, destroying it, which prevents future hair growth.
Am I a Candidate?
During your consultation, one of our licensed and medically trained providers will determine if your skin type and the condition of your skin make you an ideal candidate for the laser hair removal treatment. A candidate for laser hair removal should be in overall good health and have realistic expectations of their treatment. Ideal candidates for laser hair removal should not have sunburned, cut, damaged, or recently tanned skin.
Is there Downtime?
Our equipment offers little to no downtime. Recovery is quite simple, as the laser is designed to leave surrounding tissue unharmed. Immediately after your treatment, the skin in the treated area(s) may be slightly red and inflamed, with some patients describing the feeling like a mild sunburn. Generally, uncomfortable or abnormal sensations will resolve in a few hours. However, some patients may require one or two days for their skin to return to a normal state. Any persistent discomfort can be easily managed with cold compresses or over-the-counter pain medication.
Frequently Asked Questions
The region to be treated will be disinfected prior to the therapy. A numbing gel is applied to certain patients. When treating a small region of skin that is particularly sensitive, numbing the area to be treated helps. A numbing gel takes 30 to 60 minutes to take effect. The laser treatment will be performed in a room dedicated to laser treatments. During the process, everyone in the room must wear protective eyewear. The skin is maintained taut during the operation, and the skin is treated with a laser. The laser pulses are described by many patients as feeling like warm pinpricks or a rubber band snapping on the skin.
The length of your treatment is determined on the size of the area to be treated. It only takes a few minutes to treat the upper lip. If you're having a large region treated, such as your back or legs, your treatment could last up to an hour.
All patients must shield their skin from the sun to avoid possible negative effects. After laser hair removal, you should avoid exposing your treated skin to direct sunlight, using a tanning bed, or any other type of indoor tanning device. Follow the after-care instructions provided by your provider.
The effects of treatment will most likely be visible right away. The outcomes differ from one patient to the next. The outcomes are influenced by the color and thickness of your hair, the region treated, the type of laser utilized, and the color of your skin. After the first treatment, you should expect a ten percent to twenty-five percent reduction in hair.
For months or even years, most patients are hair-free. It will most likely fade away as part of the hair regrows. A patient may require maintenance laser treatments to keep the area hair-free.
The majority of adverse effects are minimal and only lasts one to three days. Discomfort, Swelling, and Redness are some of the side effects. Other potential adverse effects are uncommon. Blistering, Herpes simplex (cold sores) breakouts, infections, scarring, and skin lightening or darkening are all possible adverse effects.
This differs from one patient to the next. Hair removal frequently necessitates a series of laser treatments. Laser hair removal is usually done once every 4 to 6 weeks for most people. When it is safe to undergo another treatment, your provider will let you know.
