WHAT LASER DO YOU USE?At Dr. Dell Smith’s Med Spa we use DiolazeXL. It is an advanced laser hair removal technology innovated by InModeMD designed to eliminate the pain of laser hair removal with its built-in cooling technology.
IS IT SAFE?Yes, InModeMD has proven to be successful in developing safe hair removal systems. Diolaze is extremely safe with zero side effects and can be used safely on almost all areas of the body that have unwanted hair. The Diolaze system contains a sophisticated monitoring technology with automatic shut off systems designed specifically to protect your skin from over-heating.
HOW DOES IT WORK?During the process of laser hair removal, light is absorbed by melanin in the hair shaft and is converted into heat energy, thereby raising the hair temperature. When the temperature is high enough, the hair follicles are impaired and thus growth of the hair is prevented. At the time of treatment, the laser disables hair follicles that are currently in their active growth cycle. Since other hairs will enter their growth cycle at different times, additional treatments may be necessary to disable all of the follicles in a given area.
HOW LONG DOES A LASER HAIR REMOVAL APPOINTMENT TAKE?Your appointment time will depend on the size of the area being treated. An upper lip treatment will take only about 5 minutes, whereas a treatment on both legs might take up to 45 minutes.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL?Prior to your laser hair removal treatment, you will need to let your unwanted hair grow out for a few days if you normally shave it. If you normally wax the area, you will need to wait a week or 2 until some hair has grown back to the area. You will also want to stay out of the sun- real or tanning bed- or use sun protection, and hydrate well. Well hydrated skin is proven to be healthier and promote faster healing.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING MY APPOINTMENT?Your provider will first assess your skin type to determine the proper laser settings. You will lay on a treatment bed while your provider cleans the area to be treated and applies a gel to the area. Your provider will then begin the treatment, running a laser of the area with unwanted hair. The laser will penetrate through the surface of your skin to reach the hair follicles, while the cooling tip will cool your epidermis (outer layer of skin). After the laser has targeted all of the unwanted hair in the area, your provider will clean off the gel and apply a topical cream to calm the skin.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?Results vary from person to person and can be seen as soon as right after the treatment to about 10 days after the treatment. Some follicles will loosen immediately, and some will take time. This is all highly individual and without a clear connection to hair or skin type.
HOW MUCH DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL COST?The cost of Laser Hair Removal is different for everyone depending on the size of the area treated and how many sessions it takes to see desired results. Please call us with your inquiry and we will be able to provide you with a quote prior to treatment. We offer package discounts for sessions purchased in bulk.
