At our offices in Rochester, also serving Buffalo and Syracuse, laser hair removal is used to remove unwanted hair from multiple areas of the face and body. We now offer DiolazeXL, the ultimate solution to getting rid of unwanted hair! Achieve the smooth and soft skin that you’ve always wanted with the new champion of laser hair removal.
What is DiolazeXL?
DiolazeXL is an advanced laser hair removal procedure that safely and gently eliminates unwanted hair. DiolazeXL has one of the largest treatment spot sizes, making treatments convenient and fast. The combination of efficacy, patient comfort and speed makes DiolazeXL a leader in laser hair removal. It is powerful enough to target and treat even the most stubborn hair.
Benefits of DiolazeXL Laser Hair Removal
There are many benefits to having unwanted hair removed through the use of laser therapy. They include the following:
- Hair is precisely targeted
- Procedure is quick
- Results are permanent (for 90 percent of patients) or long-lasting
Unlike traditional methods (waxing, shaving, bleaching or using depilatory creams), DiolazeXL laser hair removal impacts the root of the problem, rather than offering a temporary solution. Traditional methods will require treatment forever, while DiolazeXL only requires a few sessions. Most patients immediately notice a significant reduction in hair growth and eventually smooth and hair-free skin.
Laser Hair Removal Treatment Areas
DiolazeXL can be safely used on most areas of the body that have unwanted hair.
Common areas treated on the face include:
- upper lip
Common areas treated on the body include:
- under arms
- the bikini area
candidates for laser hair removal
An ideal laser hair removal candidate has dark hair and light colored skin. It’s best to choose a time when avoiding sun exposure to minimize risks of unwanted side effects. Individuals with lighter hair may need more treatments to achieve desired results.
Darker skinned individuals with dark hair can also be treated with special care on an individual basis.
DiolazeXL Laser Hair Removal Treatment Process
We like to use the example of a lightning rod. The area is best treated after shaving. During laser treatment, a diode laser beam passes through the skin towards hair follicles. The penetrating energy then heats up the root of the hair, which in turn prevents future hair growth. Hair becomes finer. Fewer and fewer hairs grow, until finally, nearly none at all! It won’t work on plucked hairs, but trimmed hairs are fine.
Does DiolazeXL Laser Hair Removal Hurt?
For many patients, laser hair removal is painless, although some experience minor discomfort, usually described as something like a rubber band’s snapping against the skin. DiolazeXL has a built in skin cooling surface which is one of the largest for all hair removal devices. This makes treatment more comfortable than other devices, with most patients noting that DiolazeXL is virtually painless.
How many Laser Hair Removal treatments do I need?
This varies by area and from person to person. Hair is reduced with each treatment and results are observed after four to six sessions. The number of sessions will differ depending on your hair color, hair type, body area, and skin tone. Once an area has reached “maintenance”, it is recommended to come back every 6 months for a treatment to maintain a hair-free state. Some people need even less.
Why do i need multiple treatments to achieve hair removal?
As with all laser hair removal methods, DiolazeXL requires a series of treatments. Laser hair removal works best when hair follicles are in their mature stage; however, at any given time your hair is in various stages of growth.
Is Laser Hair Removal permanent?
There is a permanent reduction in hair growth in the area treated. Again, this varies from person to person.
side effects Of Laser Hair Removal
There can be side effects. Most are due to sun exposure, so this should be avoided. Concurrent use of other treatments can also affect the treatment area.
Is Laser Hair Removal Safe?
Every person considering laser hair removal receives a consult to assess your health history for safety. Eye protection is used to prevent eye injury from the bright laser light.
