When to consider Laser Hair Removal

LOCATED IN BEACHWOOD | SERVING CLEVELAND AND NORTHEAST OHIO

If you want to remove unwanted body hair without painful waxing and plucking, laser hair removal with the Diolaze laser might be for you!  Diolaze is an advanced, effective, gentle laser hair removal system to remove hair on the face and body permanently. The newest technology cleared by the FDA to safely remove unwanted hair.  The areas treated by Double-Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon  Dr. Diana Ponsky or our nurse practitioner, Olivia, include upper arms and forearms, back, chest, chin and neck, sideburns, and facial region.  Diolaze has a built-in cooling surface, which makes treatment more comfortable than other devices.

How It Helps

Laser hair removal helps with the permanent reduction or elimination of unwanted hair. Diolaze laser hair removal requires a series of treatments so that it can target hair follicles in their mature stage.  Best results are obtained after 4-6 sessions. The number of sessions varies with your hair color, type, and body area.

BEFORE

What to expect before laser hair removal

Avoid plucking or waxing 2-4 weeks before treatment.  The laser targets the hair roots temporarily removed if waxing or plucking is performed in advance.  Sun exposure should be avoided for 4-6 weeks before and after treatment.  Sun exposure makes laser hair removal less effective and makes complications like hyperpigmentation more likely after treatment, especially in those with darker skin types.

DURING

What to expect during laser hair removal

During your session, we will evaluate the area to ensure no open sores or irritation. Then, both you and the clinician will wear protective eyewear.  A gel will be applied to the area to be treated, which works with the laser to cool the area. After treatment, a cool gel is applied to soothe the skin.  You may apply cool compresses to the treated area.

AFTER

What to expect after laser hair removal

The area treated can feel like a sunburn.  Use aloe vera and moisturizers to calm your skin.  To avoid hyperpigmentation, use sunblock (SPF 30) one week after the procedure.  The hair will fall out over the next month.  You may have some redness on the day of the procedure. You will need treatment sessions to catch the hair follicles in their mature stage, usually spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
