How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser Hair Removal By Mason Aesthetics And Wellness LLC in West Haven, UT

Laser hair removal is a long-lasting solution for those tired of constantly shaving, waxing, and dealing with unwanted hair. Among the various methods available, Diolaze stands out for its combination of speed, comfort, and effectiveness. This advanced laser treatment caters to diverse skin types and precisely targets hair, making the process more efficient and less painful. 

By addressing the root of the problem, Diolaze significantly reduces hair growth, providing smoother skin with fewer treatment sessions. This method is ideal for anyone looking to simplify their beauty routine and enjoy the benefits of permanent hair reduction.

How Laser Hair Removal Works

Laser hair removal uses focused light beams to target and destroy hair follicles. The pigment, or melanin, in the hair, soaks the light that the laser emits at the start of the process. Heat is created during this absorption process and moves to the follicle down the hair shaft.

The heat produced by the laser damages the hair follicle, essentially preventing it from growing new hair. The laser works best on coarse, dark hair because it selects the pigment in the hair. However, due to developments in laser technology, including Diolaze, a greater variety of skin and hair types can now be effectively and safely treated.

A key feature of Diolaze is its integrated cooling system, which minimizes discomfort during the treatment by cooling the skin as the laser works. This enhances the patient’s comfort and protects the surrounding skin from potential damage.

Since the laser can only target hair in its active growth phase and hair grows in cycles, numerous sessions are usually necessary to achieve the best results.

Laser Hair Removal Benefit

  1. Versatility in Treatment Areas: Diolaze can be used on almost any body part, including sensitive areas like the face and bikini line. This versatility makes it a comprehensive solution for unwanted hair across different body parts​.
  2. Permanent Hair Reduction: Unlike temporary methods like shaving or waxing, Diolaze targets the hair follicles to provide a more permanent solution. Over time, this reduces the need for ongoing hair removal, leading to lasting results.
  3. Precision: Diolaze’s advanced technology allows for precise targeting of hair follicles, which is particularly beneficial for treating dense or coarse hair areas. This precision ensures effective treatment with minimal impact on the surrounding skin​.
  4. Improved Skin Texture: Besides removing hair, Diolaze can improve the texture and smoothness of the skin. Patients often notice that their skin feels softer and looks more even after treatments​.
  5. Reduced Risk of Skin Irritation: Traditional hair removal methods can cause skin irritation, such as razor burn or waxing rashes. Diolaze reduces the risk of such irritations by providing a gentler, laser-based approach​.
  6. Customizable Treatments: Diolaze treatments can suit individual patient needs, including different hair types and skin tones. This customization ensures optimal results for a wide range of patients​.
  7. Quick Recovery Time: Diolaze minimizes post-treatment recovery, allowing patients to quickly return to their normal activities. This is convenient for those with busy lifestyles.
  8. Enhanced Safety Features: Diolaze incorporates multiple safety features, including real-time skin temperature monitoring. These features ensure that the treatment is both effective and safe for all skin types​​.

The Diolaze Procedure

The Diolaze procedure is designed to be efficient and comfortable, providing a streamlined experience from start to finish.

Pre-Treatment Preparation

Before the procedure, a consultation is conducted to assess the patient’s skin and hair types and overall suitability for the treatment. Patients are advised to avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for at least two weeks before the session and to shave the treatment area within 24 hours before the appointment.

During the Procedure

When patients arrive for their Diolaze session, they are provided with protective eyewear to shield their eyes from the laser light. The technician may apply a cooling gel to the treatment area to enhance comfort. The Diolaze device then delivers a beam of laser energy to the hair follicles. Patients typically feel a mild snapping or stinging sensation as the laser pulses, but the built-in cooling system helps to minimize any discomfort​.

The Diolaze device has an extensive treatment spot size, allowing larger areas to be covered quickly. This feature significantly reduces the duration of each session, with smaller areas taking just a few minutes and larger areas like the legs or back taking up to 30 minutes​.

Post-Treatment Care

After the procedure, patients may experience some redness and slight swelling in the treated area. These side effects are usually mild and subside within a few hours to a couple of days. Patients are advised to avoid direct sun exposure and to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher to protect the treated skin. Additionally, avoiding activities that might irritate the skin, such as hot baths or strenuous exercise, is recommended for a short period following the treatment​.

Patients are typically scheduled for follow-up sessions every four to six weeks. The number of sessions needed varies depending on the individual’s hair growth cycle, but most people achieve significant hair reduction after four to six treatments​​.

Why The Need For Several Sessions?

Human hair grows in three stages: anagen (active growth), catagen (transitional phase), and telogen (resting phase). Laser hair removal functions best when a hair follicle produces hair during the anagen phase. Since individual hair follicles are always at varying stages of growth, only some follicles can be successfully targeted in a single session.

Each laser treatment significantly reduces the number of active hair follicles. As the laser targets the pigment in the hair during the anagen phase, it damages the follicle, inhibiting future growth. However, because only a portion of the hair follicles are in this growth stage during any treatment, multiple sessions are necessary to catch all hair follicles at their most vulnerable point. Generally, patients see noticeable reductions after four to six sessions, though individual results can vary​.

The number of necessary sessions can vary based on several factors. Hair color and type play a crucial role; darker, coarser hair absorbs laser energy more effectively than lighter or finer hair, often requiring fewer sessions for optimal results.
