Diode laser is a form of laser hair removal treatment that offers a gentle touch, removing hair while protecting the skin. This form of laser hair removal is an effective treatment of all skin and hair types. Laser hair removal uses laser light to remove hair follicles by targeting the melanin in the follicle. Melanin is the pigment that provides hair with its color. The presence of melanin allows the laser to be precisely targeted, heating and damaging the hair follicle.
Individual hairs must be targeted one at a time. Not all hairs are actively growing at the same time, so a patient should be treated throughout the whole hair growth cycle to ensure that all hairs have been removed.
Diode laser hair removal is an effective treatment. Many patients will find that their hair is removed long-term. The diode laser hair removal involves minimal discomfort.
Diode laser hair removal requires a course of treatments customized to your needs and hair type. Since not all hair is in a growth phase at the same time, it may be necessary to revisit certain treatment areas to permanently remove hair.
Once hair has been completely removed from areas of the body, it will only grow back under rare circumstances such as a significant hormonal change due to reasons we can’t control.
The number of laser hair treatments you should schedule depends on the area that needs to be treated. In most cases, very significant results can be seen in 6-8 treatments. It may be necessary to have 10-12 treatments at different times for complete and permanent removal.
When laser hair removal is done correctly, the risk of side effects is extremely low. We are fully qualified to customize the laser settings to your complexion and to the area of the body being treated.
Laser hair removal is extremely safe for facial areas. The laser pulse used on the face is much gentler than the pulse used in other areas of the body where the skin is thicker. If you feel uncomfortable with the strength of the laser at any given time, it can be adjusted immediately.
