Unwanted hair growth is a common problem faced amongst men and women. Those looking to avoid the time and energy involved in shaving, plucking may find that laser hair removal is a much more effective and long-term solution. Similarly, laser hair removal is often a more cost-effective solution to the investment of continually waxing at a professional establishment. Laser hair removal in St Louis is an exclusive solution for those who desire permanent results. While the procedure has long been a safe and highly-effective solution in the field of cosmetic alteration, Diolaze is an advanced level approach that both safely and gently removes unwanted hair in a time-efficient manner.
Diolaze is a unique approach to hair removal as it combines high-peak power and pulsating waves to target hair follicles at their very root. This dual-action method permanently removes body hair and is not restricted to certain areas of the body. The attending physician or technician who will be performing the treatment targets the diode laser beam at the treatment site from a hand-held device. An initial application of cool gel is applied to the skin in the area of treatment.
As the device is moved gently over the gel and surface of the skin, the laser beam works to target hair follicles to the point where future growth is prevented. Diolaze is renowned as an innovative treatment that comes with the added benefit of achieving the largest spot size possible during the procedure. The Diolaze device is additionally enabled with a chill tip which ensures the instrument does not overheat during treatment, guaranteeing a safe and comfortable procedure for the patient.
Most physicians recommend that patients undergo 4 to 6 treatments to ensure optimal results with Diolaze laser hair removal. It only takes a few treatments for patients to begin seeing drastic results. It can be anticipated that after 2 or 3 sessions, hair growth is significantly slowed, if not completed stopped in the treatment area. The number of sessions required to achieve successful results is highly dependent on how large the treatment area is as well as the thickness of the hair. It is also recommended that patients wait approximately 4 to 6 weeks between treatments to ensure that follicles are active and ready to be removed. While Diolaze provides permanent results, inactive hair follicles that are spontaneously reactive may need treatment in the future.
Diolaze is considered a non-invasive procedure and is therefore also considered extremely low-risk. The entire process takes only a few minutes to complete each session and patients are free to resume normal, everyday activities as soon as treatment is fully administered. There are no wounds or stitches to care for and any minimal redness, swelling or discomfort at the treatment site can be countered with over-the-counter pain medication as needed. Anesthetic is not required to undergo this procedure, which eliminates any risks associated with allergic reactions.
Laser hair removal cost is dependent upon a number of factors that are unique to every patient. Cost may fluctuate depending on the pattern of hair growth and how large an area is being treated. Highly promoted national med spa chains like Ideal Image usually cost the most. Medical office-based laser hair removal treatments are less expensive than national chains. The anticipated cost in relationship to treatment specifics is always discussed prior to treatment so that patients have the information they need to make an informed and financially sound decision. Very rarely will health insurance providers pay for the treatment. You can always contact your insurance plan to see what their coverage benefits entail. In the likely event that the procedure isn’t covered by an insurance provider, the team at the St. Louis Laser Lipo and Vein Center is happy to go over the many alternative options for payment.
