Laser Hair Removal with diolaze technology

At Larimar Med in St. Charles, Illinois, we utilize the DioLazer laser to provide advanced laser hair removal. laser hair removal is done using the DioLaze laser. This high-speed device not only safely and gently eliminates unwanted hair, but it also has one of the largest treatment spot sizes, making treatments convenient and fast.

Unlike traditional methods (waxing, shaving, bleaching, or using depilatory creams) laser hair removal targets permanent results, rather than offering a temporary solution. Most patients immediately notice a significant reduction in hair growth after just a few sessions and eventually obtain smooth and hair-free skin.

Treatment areas include: 

• Face
• Neck
• Arms
• Underarms
• Back
• Bikini Line 
• Brazilian 
• Legs

laser hair removal q&a

HOW LONG DO HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENTS TAKE?

Smaller areas such as the lip and chin take as little as 5 minutes. Underarms and bikini hair removal treatments take approximately 15 minutes. Larger treatment areas such as the back, arms or legs take longer, from 30 to 45 minutes (for both arms or both legs).

 

WHAT IS THE RECOVERY LIKE?

Other than keeping the treated area protected from sunlight for a few weeks, you can return to your full, normal routines immediately.  Slight redness similar to a mild sunburn may occur.  This usually disappears over a few days. When using BBL for laser hair removal it is very important to be minimize strong sun exposure for minimum 1 month.


DOES HAIR EVER COME BACK AFTER LASER REMOVAL?

The hair that is in the active growing phase when the laser hair removal treatment is performed does not come back once the follicle is damaged, but new hair growth may occur from follicles that were not in the active growing phase or have been stimulated by hormonal changes. This is why we recommend 6-8 sessions to achieve the hair reduction that patients desire.


IS HAIR REMOVAL PERMANENT?

Yes, DioLaze laser hair removal is very effective at reducing unwanted hair. Once the hair follicle is killed, it can no longer grow.


WHAT HAPPENS TO THE HAIR THAT IS ALREADY GROWING WHEN YOU HAVE LASER HAIR REMOVAL?

It is normal for some hair to continue to grow after laser hair removal treatment. Some of these hairs are being released from the recently disrupted follicle, and some are from dormant follicles that were not in the active phase at the time of the hair removal treatment. This normal hair cycle is why hair removal consists of 6-8 recommended treatment sessions per treatment area, approximately 4-6 weeks apart depending on the area that is being treated.

AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL?

Both men and women who have unwanted body hair that makes them feel self-conscious or limits their ability to wear certain clothing can often benefit from laser hair removal. Ideal candidates will have dark hair and light skin, as the laser light cannot be absorbed by light hair.
