Preparing for Your First Laser Hair Removal Session: What to Expect with Diolaze XL

Unwanted hair can be a constant battle and traditional methods like shaving and waxing can be expensive, time-consuming, and irritating for the skin. Laser hair removal offers a long-term solution, and Diolaze XL by InMode is leading the charge.

At Blurr’d Lines Med Spa, we’re here to help you achieve the hassle-free, hair-free skin you crave. But we know you might be hesitant to try laser hair removal if it’s new to you. You probably have a lot of questions! 

  • Does it hurt? 
  • Does it work? 
  • How much time does it take to see results? 

We’re here to provide a comprehensive guide to laser hair removal that’ll answer these questions — and more! 

What is Diolaze XL?

Diolaze XL is an advanced laser hair removal system that uses a high-powered diode laser to target and disable hair follicles. Unlike other methods of laser hair removal or electrolysis, Diolaze XL can treat larger areas in less time. This makes an ideal laser hair removal treatment for the face, arms, back, chest, bikini line, and legs.

Quick FAQs About Diolaze XL Laser Hair Removal

Is laser hair removal permanent?

While laser hair removal isn’t a guarantee for permanent hair removal, it can achieve significant and long-lasting hair reduction. The laser targets the pigment in the hair follicle, damaging its growth potential. 

Sometimes, the follicle is completely destroyed. But more often than not, the follicle is stunted, causing hair growth to stop for months at a time. 

Is laser hair removal safe?

Safety is always our top priority at Blurr’d Lines. Diolaze XL laser hair removal is safe and effective when used by a trained and certified technician. We’ll assess your skin type and medical history to ensure Diolaze XL is suitable for you before proceeding with treatment.

Who can get laser hair removal?

DiolazeXL is suitable for virtually all skin types, which sets it apart from many other laser hair removal systems. Still, our providers will assess your hair and skin types during your consultation to verify that DiolazeXL can provide the results you’re looking for.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

Another feature that makes DiolazeXL a cut above other treatments is a large cooling plate that makes the process far more comfortable than other lasers. You may still feel a sensation similar to a rubber band snapping on your skin, but most patients remain very comfortable during their treatments. 

Why do I need multiple sessions to see results?

Hair growth happens in phases, and each hair follicle is on its own schedule. Laser hair removal only works on follicles that are in an active growth phase. The purpose of having multiple laser hair removal sessions spaced a few weeks apart is to catch each follicle in the treatment area during its growth phase so that the hair growth is stopped. 

Your Laser Hair Removal Guide 

Before Your Appointment:

Schedule Your Consultation. The first step is to contact Blurr’d Lines Med Spa and schedule a consultation with one of our specialists. This consultation allows you to discuss your goals, medical history, and suitability for Diolaze XL laser hair removal treatment.

Know Your Skin. Be prepared to share your skin type, sun exposure habits, and any medications you’re currently taking. This information is crucial for our providers to tailor the treatment plan to your unique needs and also to maximize results.

Prep the Treatment Area. 24 to 48 hours before your consultation, thoroughly shave the area you wish to treat. This makes it easier for the laser to directly target the hair follicle (as opposed to the hair itself) for more effective results.

Minimize Sun Exposure. Avoid extensive sun exposure for at least two weeks before treatment. A sunburn or a tan can make laser hair removal less effective or make your skin too sensitive for the treatment.

Discuss Medications. Certain medications like retinol and antibiotics can increase skin sensitivity. During your consultation, be sure to mention any medications you’re taking.

Consultation Day:

Welcome and Review. After checking-in, our providers will review your medical history and provide a detailed explanation of the Diolaze XL laser hair removal process.

Skin Assessment. Our provider will assess your skin type and hair color to determine the most effective and safest laser settings for your treatment.

Personalized Treatment Plan. Together, you and the provider will create a customized treatment plan based on your desired results and the area being treated. Diolaze XL typically requires multiple sessions for the best results.

Q&A. Don’t hesitate to ask questions! This is the perfect time to address all your questions and concerns about the procedure, potential side effects, or post-treatment care.

Treatment Day:

Comfort First. The treatment area will be cleansed and protective eyewear will be provided. A topical numbing cream may also be applied to enhance your comfort during the procedure.

The Diolaze XL Experience. The provider will use the Diolaze XL device to deliver pulses of light to the targeted area. The laser targets the pigment in the hair follicle, disabling its ability to grow new hair.

A Gentle Touch. You may experience a slight tingling or sunburn sensation during the treatment. However, Diolaze XL is known for its comfort compared to other laser hair removal technologies.

Treatment Time. The length of the treatment will vary depending on the size of the area being treated.

After Your Treatment:

Post-Treatment Care. We’ll provide you with specific aftercare instructions. This usually includes avoiding sun exposure, applying moisturizer, and avoiding hot showers for a few days.

Scheduling Follow-Ups. Multiple sessions are typically needed for the best results. We’ll schedule your follow-up appointments based on your personalized treatment plan and budget.
