About Laser Hair Removal

Waxing and shaving are the most common hair removal methods, but they also require a lifetime of maintenance, expenses, and pain. If you experience hair growth in parts of your body that you wish remained smooth, you might want to consider laser hair removal. You can achieve permanently hair-free and smooth skin with just a few laser hair removal sessions. We use the cutting-edge DiolazeXL by Inmode to perform laser hair removal with the utmost precision on all skin types and colors.

Common areas for laser hair removal:

  • Face (upper lip, sideburns, and chin)
  • Underarms
  • Shoulders
  • Back
  • Bikini area
  • Abdomen
  • Brazilian area
  • Buttocks
  • Lower legs
  • Feet

These are some of the most common areas for laser hair removal. However, the procedure can be performed on any part of the body with unwanted hair growth. You’re the ideal candidate for laser hair removal if you want to achieve permanently hair-free skin on any part of the body.

The ideal alternative to waxing and shaving

Laser hair removal is the ideal alternative to waxing, shaving, and all other hair removal techniques. Shaving is extremely temporary, and your hair grows out denser and coarser than before. You also risk nicks and razor burns, which can affect your skin quality. Waxing isn’t as temporary as shaving, but you still need to repeat the process every couple of weeks. Furthermore, waxing sessions are also extremely painful.

Laser hair removal produces permanent results. It destroys the roots of the hair follicles, thus stopping hair growth permanently. You need multiple sessions spaced a month apart because different hair follicles grow out at different stages, and laser hair removal only targets hair follicles in the first stage of hair growth (anagen). However, after six to eight sessions, you can enjoy a lifetime of hair-free skin.

DiolazeXL for laser hair removal

DiolazeXL is the ideal device for laser hair removal because it can be customized according to your specific skin type and color. Most laser hair removal devices only work for light-skinned individuals because the pigment on the skin absorbs the laser energy. However, DiolazeXL can be adjusted to target your specific hair follicles without damaging the surrounding skin. As such, it’s suitable for all skin types.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

No, laser hair removal doesn’t hurt. As the laser device is moved over the treatment areas, you may feel a sensation similar to a rubber band snapping on your skin. The sensation is mild and temporary. There are no harsh side effects or complications.

How many laser hair removal sessions will I need?

Most patients need around six laser hair removal sessions spaced a month apart for optimal results. However, the specific number of sessions necessary varies from one individual to the next. You’ll need to repeat the treatment until all the hair follicles in the target area are destroyed.
