Our Beverly Hills plastic surgeons offer a safe, gentle hair removal procedure with the Diolaze laser by InMode, the leading module on the market for removing unwanted hair. The advantage of Diolaze is a large treatment spot size, which makes treatments even faster and more convenient for you.
How does laser hair removal work?
The laser projects a carefully modulated diode laser beam at the targeted hair follicles. The light’s energy is absorbed by color pigment in the hair follicle and converted into heat, disabling the follicle and its ability to regrow.
To counteract this heat and prevent discomfort, the laser hair removal system includes a built-in skin cooling surface that is one of the largest on the market, and so effective that most patients note the procedure is virtually painless.*
Hair grows in three phases: anagen, catagen, and telomere. Laser hair removal devices like Diolaze target the anagen phase. Each hair follicle grows independently of neighboring hairs, so multiple treatments are required to catch all the targeted hairs at the same stage of growth. However, because our laser has a larger radius, your laser hair removal treatments with our Beverly Hills plastic surgery team should be much shorter than traditional hair removal sessions.*
What does the laser hair removal treatment feel like?
One of our plastic surgeons will determine the recommended number of sessions based on your skin tone, hair color and type, and the targeted body area. Diolaze is safe for most areas of the body, and popular treatment areas include the chin, sideburns, neck, shoulder, arms, chest, back, bikini area, stomach, and legs.
After each treatment, you should see a noticeable reduction in hair.* Best results generally occur after four to six sessions, spaced several weeks apart so that the remaining hair can reach the anagen phase for treatment. Avoid waxing or plucking hair follicles between sessions, since the bulb must be present for the treatment to be effective.
With easy and effective treatments like Diolaze available, there’s no reason to live with unwanted hair. Schedule a consultation about the benefits of Diolaze, and learn how hair removal can benefit you.
