What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in the United States. It's a convenient way for the long-term reduction of hair on the body and face. This laser treatment typically leaves the skin feeling and looking smoother while providing longer-lasting results compared to other options for hair removal. Steven Zivich, M.D. at Boston Direct Health performs laser hair removal treatments with Diolaze XL technology for individuals who want a long-term solution for hair reduction. This treatment can be used almost anywhere on the body, including the back, legs, arms, face, chest, and intimate areas.

"I went to BDH for laser hair removal on legs and armpits. The office is clean and welcoming and Dr. Zivich is fantastic to work with (it's six hour long sessions... so lots of time talking!). He's caring, knowledgeable and takes a holistic/patient-focused approach to wellness.Dr. Zivich was meticulous, he worked with me in early sessions to adjust laser settings based on pain threshold/skin reaction, and passed over stubborn areas 3x in the later sessions, leading to excellent results."- S.B. / Google / Mar 30, 2021
how does Laser Hair Removal work?
On the day of your appointment at Boston Direct Health, we'll have you lie in a private treatment room as areas of your face and body are cleaned to remove oil, dirt, makeup, and lotions. Then, the Diolaze XL handpiece will be used to target unwanted hair follicles. The laser energy will destroy the follicle, preventing the hair from growing again. Typically, we recommend a series of 3 – 5 treatments spaced one month apart for the best results.
Once your session is done, you'll be free to resume your normal activities but should refrain from direct sun exposure for at least 24 hours to let the treated areas recover. When you get home following your session, we recommend soothing creams or ice packs to alleviate any discomfort.
