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. 

Steve 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.

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. Diolaze XL has a built-in cooling surface while a diode beam passes through the skin towards hair follicles. The penetrating energy hears up the root of the hair, preventing future growth.

What can I expect from the results?

You may see some initial results right away. However, it generally takes a series of treatments, depending on your skin and hair type, to achieve the best results. This laser system will drastically reduce the amount of time and money you spend on shaving and waxing! The Diolaze XL may even improve the overall appearance of your skin, giving you a fresh, rejuvenated glow!

How many sessions are required?

Treatments work best when hair follicles are in their mature stage. At any given time, your hair is in various stages of growth, so most patients experience noticeable results after 4-6 sessions. Your hair color, hair type, body area, and skin tone can also play a factor in the number of sessions you may require. Diolaze XL can be safely used on most areas of the body that have unwanted hair.

Does it hurt?

Diolaze XL’s has one of the largest built-in skin cooling surfaces in the industry. This increases the level of the comfort that patients experience. Patients often describe their sessions as “virtually painless.”

Is there any downtime?

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.
