Diolaze 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. This hair removal technology, safely and gently destroys the root of the hair follicle, preventing the growth of future hair.
Energy is used in the form of light to damage the hair follicle. The energy from the light source is absorbed by the pigment, called melanin, which gives hair its color. The hair rapidly absorbs this filtered light and transfers it to the surrounding cells, which in turn convert it into heat. This heating denatures the cells, rendering them incapable of producing further hair growth. The procedure treats large areas at once making it quick and convenient.
Since the laser light targets pigment/melanin the contrast between the color of the skin and the color of the pigment in the hair follicle is what allows the laser to easily pick out what to target, so light colored hair will not allow for an effective treatments. In patients with darker skin tones the melanin-rich skin competes with the melanin in the hair follicle for the laser's attention, but his doesn’t mean it’s not a possibility for deeper skin tones! It just means that we will need to take it slow, utilizing spot tests to find the appropriate settings for you.
The treatment itself varies depending on the size and areas that are treated. An upper lip treatment will take only about 5 minutes, whereas a treatment on both legs might take up to 45 minutes.
Available areas for treatment include:
Immediately post treatment, there will be lingering heat in your skin resulting in the sensation of a mild sunburn – this will quickly dissipate over about an hour.
How many sessions will I need? Every body-part has a different hair growth cycle and the time of the growth cycles can vary from four to 12 weeks depending on the area. After a couple of treatments, clients typically experience a significant reduction in hair along with an overall slower growth pattern. An average of 6 sessions are required for maximum hair reduction and it is important to keep in mind that the number of sessions you will need depends on many factors, including areas of the body being treated, skin color, coarseness of hair, sex, hormones and any underlying health conditions.
While it results in the inhibition of hair growth, results might not necessarily be permanent, and you may need an occasional maintenance session to keep on top of it. However, many people have found it to be very successful, finding hair growth reduced by up to 80% and the hair that does grow is often thinner, slower and less noticeable.
