WHAT TO EXPECT
-- Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
-- Shave area 24-48 hours before your appointment, no waxing!
-- Remove any makeup, deodorant + moisturizers in the treatment area before your appointment.
-- Avoid plucking, waxing + bleaching area for 6 weeks prior to treatment and in between treatments.
-- Avoid sun exposure for a few weeks before your treatment.
-- Stop skincare used in the treatment area that contains exfoliants, retinoids, or acids at least 3 days before your appointment.
-- The device’s cooling plate + topical gel keep you comfortable during your treatment- cool, cool.
-- Most patients describe the feeling like the snapping of an elastic band.
-- Aloe is applied to the treatment area to help soothe the area.
-- Redness is expected after treatment.
-- Wear physical sunscreen and avoid prolonged sun exposure for the following weeks (and always)- but you already knew that.
-- Use only skincare products provided or directed by your provider for a few days after your appointment. Avoid using any skincare products that have active ingredients for a week on the treatment area.
Q: Does it hurt?
A: Diolaze has a built-in cooling surface, which makes this treatment more comfortable than other devices. With most patients, this treatment is virtually painless.
Q: How many sessions are required?
A: Hair is reduced with each treatment and results are observed after four to six sessions. The number of sessions will depend on your hair color, hair type, body area, and skin tone. However, we recommend 8 sessions.
Q: How does Diolaze work?
A: During laser hair treatment, a diode laser beam passes through the skin towards hair follicles. The penetrating energy then heats up the root of the hair, which in turn prevents future hair growth.
