Unwanted hair can be an embarrassing issue to deal with. Painful electrolysis, waxing, and hair removal creams can be messy and expensive with results being only temporary. At the cosmetic surgery office of Dr. Manuel Peña, we offer advanced hair removal technology for women and men that removes unwanted hair and gives you smooth skin for an extended period of time. Yes, men you too can get rid of unwanted chest and body hair!
For most skin complexions, Dr. Manuel Peña recommends a diode laser, Diolaze, for hair removal. Diolaze is a light and energy-based technology that delivers a specific spectrum of light wavelength, sending light energy to the precise hair follicles to target and break up hair pigments and disrupt the growth cycle. This treatment is safe and surrounding tissue is unharmed. Diolaze can be used on the face and body to remove dark (black or brown) hair and reduce or stop hair regrowth.
Diolaze is a popular, cost-effective procedure for treating large areas of hair for hair removal, such as on the back and legs, in far less time than standard laser treatments.
What Areas of the Body can Benefit from Laser Hair Removal?
Dr. Peña advises patients that laser hair removal is a safe procedure women and men that effectively reduces the growth and appearance of hair on your body. Laser hair removal has been safely used to remove unwanted dark colored hair from various parts of the body, including:
- Arms / Underarms
- Lip (upper)
Since the hair grows in cycles, multiple treatments are typically recommended to remove all of the hair growth. Diolaze hair removal is appropriate for all parts of the body and all skin types.
How Does Diolaze Work?
Drawing upon the principle of selective photothermolysis, Diolaze laser uses sudden ‘zaps’ of energy to target and remove unwanted hair. IPL can also be used for this and is also effective in correcting skin conditions, such as hyperpigmentation, rosacea, age spots, acne, and sun damage. (Learn more about skin rejuvenation with IPL.)
The advantages of Diolaze are:
- Treatments are convenient and fast.
- Hair growth is stopped after a series of treatments (actual number of treatments varies from person-to-person).
- Larger areas can be treated more comfortably than standard lasers.
- Safe for the face and body.
Because Diolaze targets pigments, the laser technicians will advise you not to get a tan before laser hair removal since it will confuse the pigment seeking laser wavelength. Laser hair removal only works on black or brown hair. White and blond hair will not be affected by the laser energy. The laser technicians will adjust the strength of the wavelengths based on the color of your skin and hair.
Does Diolaze Work for All Skin Types?
For most complexions, Diolaze is safe on both the face and body to remove hair and stop hair regrowth. Because Diolaze precisely delivers light energy to break up hair pigment, surrounding tissue remains unharmed. The therapist will adjust the strength of the wavelengths for the most effective results based on your skin and hair tones.
