WHAT IS DiolazeXL? DiolazeXL is an advanced laser hair removal procedure that safely and gently eliminates unwanted hair. DiolazeXL has one of the largest treatment spot sizes, making treatments convenient and fast. The combination of efficacy, patient comfort and speed makes DiolazeXL a leader in laser hair removal. It is powerful enough to target and treat even the most stubborn hair.
HOW DOES DiolazeXL WORK? During laser 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.
DOES IT HURT? DiolazeXL has a built-in skin cooling surface which is one of the largest for all hair removal devices. This makes treatment more comfortable than other devices, with most patients noting that DiolazeXL is virtually painless.
WHY DO I NEED MULTIPLE TREATMENTS TO ACHIEVE HAIR REMOVAL? As with all laser hair removal methods, DiolazeXL requires a series of treatments. Laser hair removal works best when hair follicles are in their mature stage; however, at any given time your hair is in various stages of growth.
HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE REQUIRED? Hair is reduced with each treatment and results are observed after four to six sessions. The number of sessions will differ depending on your hair color, hair type, body area, and skin tone.
WHICH AREAS OF THE BODY CAN BE TREATED? DiolazeXL can be safely used on most areas of the body that have unwanted hair. Most commonly treated areas include: bikini, legs, arms, chest, back, shoulders, stomach, neck, chin and sideburns.
Four weeks before treatment:
Avoid any tanning for 3-4 weeks prior to treatment AND use SPF 30+ sunscreen. It is extremely important to wear sunscreen daily and avoid intentional sun exposure to prevent adverse reactions to your treatment such as burns, hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation.
Do not use self-tanning lotion or spray tan for 4 weeks prior to treatment. This can result in adverse reactions such as burns, hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation.
For your safety, any patient arriving with a tan or sunburn may be rescheduled.
One week before treatment:
Stop all “irritating” skincare treatments including retinol, glycolic acid, hydroquinone, exfoliating scrubs and Clarisonic cleanser for 3 days prior to your treatment.
Day of treatment:
The treatment area needs to be clean and free of makeup, lotions or sunscreens.
Be sure to notify your provider if there have been any changes to your health or your medications since your last visit. Some medications may cause you to be more sensitive to IPL treatment and may result in burns or an allergic reaction.
Notify your provider of any cold sores, rashes, or open wounds ANYWHERE on your body (not just in the treatment area).
Electrolysis safely and permanently removes hair from all skin tones. It is the only FDA-approved permanent hair removal treatment. Because electrolysis permanently destroys the growth cells in the hair follicles, the hair will not grow back.
