Just like any other beauty treatment, hair removal is one of those things that people do to make themselves feel better. You may not feel confident in your appearance if you have a lot of hair on your body that you do not want. Thankfully, Diolaze XL is an effective, powerful method of using laser technology to remove hair, and it’s offered here at The MedSpa at Burlington Plastic Surgery by Dr. Jessica Shih and her expert team.
Laser Hair Removal at a Glance
Hair Removal: What Are the Benefits of Diolaze XL?
There are many benefits to using this laser treatment. It’s fast and effective, with results appearing in as little as fifteen minutes. It also offers patients incredible precision with its ability to target even the finest hairs, leaving them with a smooth finish. It’s noticeably less painful than other methods of removing hair, with patients describing a “slight pinch” at the most, and others not being able to feel treatment at all! Patients love that the device comes with an easy-to-follow instruction booklet, making treatment very safe.
How Does This Treatment Work?
This FDA-approved laser treatment works to deliver a powerful beam of light directly to the hair follicle, destroying it so that the hair can no longer grow. The impressive technology involves a diode laser that emits light in the near-infrared spectrum. This wavelength is specifically absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle, causing thermal damage that destroys the follicle. There is no need for messy creams or gels, and the treatment can be completed in as little as 15 minutes.
Where Can This Treatment Be Used?
This treatment can be used on many areas of the body, including the chest, arms, legs, underarms, bikini area, and stomach. Thanks to the precision of the laser, it’s highly likely we will be able to treat your aesthetic concerns.
How Should I Prepare for This Treatment?
If you are planning to have this treatment, you must shave beforehand. The laser targets hair follicles, so if you have not shaved any area where you intend to have the treatment, the hairs might burn. For this reason, shaving is probably the most crucial step in your preparation. Beyond this, it is unlikely we will ask you to do too much else, except to avoid getting sunburned or injuring the treatment area. You should also wash thoroughly beforehand to ensure there are no creams or oils on your skin.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Many Sessions Are Needed?
How many sessions you need depends on a number of factors, including the size and location of the area being treated, as well as your skin type. We often recommend an 6-session treatment package to achieve optimal results, however, the total number of treatments required can be more or less depending on the individual. The length of time between treatments will vary between 4-8 weeks apart depending on the area being treated to ensure the hair follicles are targeted in the correct phase of their growth.
Is There a Recovery Period Required Afterward?
There is no recovery period necessary after your session. Patients are able to go right back to their day-to-day routines. However, we do recommend that you avoid going swimming for a few days afterward, as the chemicals found in chlorinated water can irritate freshly lasered skin. Patients should also avoid direct sun exposure, as we strongly advise you against sunburning the skin. Regularly moisturizing is also very important as it will help the skin’s natural protective barrier.
How Quickly Will My Results Develop?
Because hair follicles will be destroyed immediately after your first treatment, you can expect near-instant results. However, multiple treatments are required as hair follicles in a single area vary in their growth stages and need to be targeted at a certain stage in their growth cycle. By the end of your treatment pack, you may notice not just a lack of hair, but also a smoother and more supple skin texture. Patients love that without having to worry about body hair, they can wear what they want when they want and feel more confident.
Who Is a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
Anyone struggling with body hair that makes them feel unhappy or lacking in confidence may be interested in this treatment. It is suitable for all genders and skin tones since we know body hair can affect anyone! We will first need to talk through your medical history, including any skin conditions you may have, to ensure this treatment will be an apt solution for your concerns.
