A diode laser beam is lubricated and cooled and then applied to the area of skin being treated. The laser beam targets hair follicles that are darker in pigmentation than your skin tone, preventing future hair growth. Only hairs in a certain phase of growth are targeted, so multiple treatments are necessary for permanent results.
The DiolazeXL laser for hair removal combines peak power and a large spot size. Patients will need fewer and shorter treatment sessions to achieve permanent hair reduction. Each treatment protocol differs slightly depending on hair color, type, body area, and skin tone.
Laser hair removal is safe and effective and can be used on almost any part of the body that grows hair. The most common places to treat are the neck, chin, hairline (sideburns), legs, arms, chest, back, bikini, shoulders and stomach. Laser hair removal is not used for removal of eyebrow hair or around the eyes due potential risk of injury to the eyes.
To get the best results from your laser hair removal treatments, you will want to prepare your skin before your appointment.
You will need to stop plucking, waxing, and using electrolysis for six weeks before your laser hair removal appointment. These treatments temporarily remove the hairs’ roots which are necessary for hair removal to work properly.
Avoid tanning before your procedure. Laser hair removal works in part by detecting dark pigments in your hair follicles. Tanning causes your skin to become darkly pigmented and makes it hard for the laser to distinguish hair follicles from the surrounding skin.
Avoid direct sun exposure for six weeks before (and after) your treatment. Sun exposure not only will tan your skin, but can also lead to complications during the healing process.
Before the procedure begins, the hair being treated will be trimmed to a few millimeters above the skin’s surface. A topical numbing agent will be applied 20 to 30 minutes before the procedure to help soothe the laser’s heat. The DiolazeXL laser is adjusted according to the color, thickness, and location of the hair being treated.
For one to two days following treatment, the treated area of skin will feel slightly sunburned. Makeup is fine as long as your skin is not irritated by it. A cool compress or moisturizer may help soothe irritated skin. Over 30 days following treatment, you’ll notice the hair in the affected area falling out. During this time, please wear sunscreen to prevent temporary changes in the skin color of the treated area.
Laser hair removal is a quick and safe way of achieving the smooth, hair-free skin you want. The professionals at Meeting Point Health understand that you want to feel and look your best and we are excited to help you achieve these goals.
Permanent hair reduction is typically achieved in 6-8 sessions.
The DiolazeXL handheld device has a skin cooling technology. Your provider will first cool and lubricate your skin before beginning hair removal. Many patients say that DiolazeXL is much more comfortable than other laser hair removal devices because of its skin cooling technology.
DiolazeXL, like all laser hair removal procedures, necessitates a number of treatments. Hair removal is most successful when the follicles are in a certain phase. And because each of our hairs are in a different phase of growth, it takes time and repetition to catch every follicle in an opportunistic phase for permanent hair removal.
Our DiolazeXL laser is made specifically for hair removal and does not affect moles.
Laser hair removal procedures need to shy away from hitting any tattooed areas as the laser will affect the tattoo in a negative manner. Our laser hair removal specialists are well aware of this and are well prepared to avoid tattoos when using the DiolazeXL laser.
