Believe it or not, it has been over 25 years since the first laser hair removal device was initially approved by the FDA. Before laser hair removal, there had not been an accessible treatment on the market that targeted the hair follicle to reduce the chances of future growth.
Since then, laser hair removal has become one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in the U.S. and continues to grow in popularity year after year, especially among women.
If you’re tired of waxing, shaving, or tweezing, you may want to consider laser hair removal, especially if you have stubborn hair that is very thick or dark or grows back quickly after being removed.
Generally, during laser hair removal, a laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. This light energy turns into heat which in return damages the hair follicles that produce the hair. The damage that is done to the hair follicle is meant to inhibit or delay future hair growth.
Although different laser hair removal devices work according to the same basic principles, they do not use the same methods or technology, resulting in different efficacy rates. That’s why here at Garcia Aesthetics, we use Diolaze.
Diolaze is an FDA-cleared advanced laser hair removal device that safely eliminates unwanted hair. It is known for its quick treatment times and relatively painless procedure.
Diolaze is the first to combine high peak power, optimal pulsing, and the largest spot size simultaneously in the same session. It is unique because of its large surface tip, allowing for quicker treatment of larger areas. Not only this, but the tip of the device is a sapphire 3CP cooling tip that is used to consistently keep your skin calm, comfortable and even prevent damage and burning of the skin.
Technically, anyone who wants to significantly reduce hair growth on their body is the right candidate. Although, Diolaze tends to work best on patients who have light to medium-dark skin with darker hair. This is because the laser targets the pigment (melanin) of the hair follicle, making treatment less effective on blonder or grayer hair.
The number of treatments needed depends on the individual’s desired results, but we recommend 4 to 6 treatments to see significant hair reduction.
There are also individual factors that can affect results, such as age, skin type, hair color, and texture. But with the occasional maintenance treatments, the areas treated will remain relatively hairless.
To ensure a safe and effective procedure, make sure to not wax or pluck any of the treatment areas at least four to six weeks prior to undergoing laser hair removal. This is because the hair follicle must be visible to the laser in order to destroy it.
You should also shave the treatment area one to three days before your procedure, so the laser effectively targets the follicle and not just the hair on the surface of your skin.
It is also important to avoid sun exposure for at least six weeks before and after treatment. Sun exposure can make laser hair removal less effective and can increase the risk of complications following treatment.
