Premier laser hair removal to smooth your favorite areas.
Diolaze™ (Laser Hair Removal)
Diolaze™ is an advanced laser hair removal system by InMode to safely and effectively reduce hair growth with a series of quick and easy treatments. Laser hair removal works by targeting individual hair follicles with laser light energy that is absorbed by the pigment in the hair shaft. Once absorbed, the laser energy travels to follicle and begins damaging the hair growth mechanisms. Over time, this causes the follicle to stop growing new hair. Diolaze uses advanced technology and a housed skin cooling mechanism to ensure that you remain comfortable and pain-free during treatment.
The best candidates for premier laser hair removal with Diolaze are those with dark hair and fair skin. This is because the laser energy can most easily find the pigment in the hair shaft against the skin. However, our laser technicians can determine your best options for hair removal during a consultation if you have very light or white hair. It’s important to avoid plucking or waxing the hairs before treatment so that there is a defined hair shaft to treat. Additionally, tanning or using spray tanners can complicate the effectiveness of your treatment and should be avoided before your treatment session.
Most patients can tolerate laser hair removal with Diolaze because of its built-in safety systems. However, we understand that each patient has a different level of tolerance so we can provide a topical numbing cream so that you’re comfortable. Once the treatment area is prepared, you’ll be given a pair of protective eye shields. Then, the Diolaze handpiece is applied to the skin along with a cooling gel to prevent burning. The length of your treatment session will depend on the size of your treatment area, and you’ll receive an estimate of what to expect during your consultation.
After treatment, you might experience some minor redness and sensitivity. This usually subsides quickly. You should be sure to wear sunscreen on the treated area in the days following treatment since laser treatments can make your skin photosensitive. After your treatment session, you can return to your regular activities and even wear makeup. Most patients require at least six treatment sessions for best results, which can achieve nearly 80-90% reduction in hair growth after a full course of treatment. This can make at-home hair removal much easier and less laborious.
Laser hair removal is an excellent way to free yourself from shaving, plucking, or waxing unwanted hair. To get started on your laser hair removal package, contact our Cary office to set up a consultation with our laser hair removal technicians. We invite you to call or fill out our online form.
What is DiolazeXL?
Diolaze is a laser hair removal treatment that gently removes and prevents unwanted hair growth. Diolaze utilizes a diode laser to target pigmented hair follicles without damaging the surrounding skin.
Is a Diolaze treatment painful?
Diolaze includes a built-in cooling system that soothes the skin throughout the duration of the treatment. A cooling topical gel is also utilized to supplement the treatment, providing optimal patient comfort. Most patients would compare the sensation to a rubber band or a bee-sting. With a large-plated applicator, treatments are fast and convenient.
What areas can be treated with Diolaze?
Diolaze can be used on essentially any part of the body with unwanted hair. Our more popular treatment areas include underarms, lip, chin, sideburns, bikini, lower leg, and arms.
Why will I need multiple treatments?
To ensure optimal results, we recommend 6 or more treatments per treatment area. Many factors include treatment area, hair color, hair type, and skin tone. For those seeking maintenance, fewer treatments may be necessary.
Can all hair be treated with Diolaze?
Because Diolaze targets pigmented hair, it also incidentally targets pigmented skin. Thus, extreme caution must be exercised when treating Fitzpatrick skin types IV and V.
What can I expect after treatment?
Common post-treatment side effects include mild sensitivity and redness in the treated area(s). We strongly recommend adequate sun protection and limited sun exposure overall.
How long does Diolaze hair removal last?
While there is no permanent hair reduction method, you can expect your Diolaze results to last up to one year or longer after completing a regimented treatment schedule. Patients can opt to receive occasional maintenance treatments in the years following initial treatment plans.
What happens if you dont shave before laser hair removal?
The diode laser works by targeting the pigment in hair follicles. By shaving prior to treatment, the shaft of the hair is shortened, allowing better accessibility for the laser to target the hair root and follicle. If a patient has not shaven shortly before their treatment, it is possible the light energy is not accurately targeting the follicle, making for an ineffective treatment. Additionally, hairs may absorb the light during treatment and leave burn marks on the skin.
