About Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is the most effective and permanent hair removal technique available. Other hair removal techniques, such as waxing and shaving, can only remove the unwanted hairs for a few days or weeks, necessitating a lifetime of maintenance. But laser hair removal uses laser energy to destroy the unwanted hair follicles, helping you achieve completely smooth, hair-free skin at the targeted areas, such as the underarms, legs, and bikini line.

  • Face
  • Shoulders

Suitable for ALL Skin Types

Most laser devices can offer effective laser hair removal for patients with dark hair and light skin. The laser energy is absorbed by the pigment in the hair. If the patient has extremely light hair, it might not absorb the laser energy, making the treatment relatively ineffective. And if the patient has dark skin, the laser energy may also get absorbed by the skin, leading to harsh side effects and the possibility of skin discoloration.

Evolve MD Modern Med Spa offers laser hair removal for all skin types. We use the cutting-edge DiolazeXL laser device, which is designed for all skin types, including skin type VI (dark skin). We can perform laser hair removal on everyone, regardless of age, sex, skin type, or hair color. The DiolazeXL laser device also includes cooling tips that ensure optimal comfort during the treatment.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal involves using laser energy to destroy unwanted hair follicles. We use the cutting-edge Diolaze laser to deliver highly calibrated wavelengths of laser energy into the unwanted follicles. The pigment in your hair absorbs the laser energy and gets destroyed, stopping hair growth from that particular region. Each session targets different hair follicles, so the results gradually improve over multiple sessions. Most patients need around 6 sessions for 90% hair removal.

The Laser Hair Removal Process

You should shave the targeted treatment areas before coming for the laser hair removal session. When you arrive, the medical provider will clean the treatment areas to remove all the makeup residue and debris. The medical provider will adjust the DiolazeXL laser device according to your unique skin type, following which the handheld laser device will be moved across your skin. You might feel slightly warm during the treatment, but there’s no pain.

Side Effects & Downtime

Laser hair removal doesn’t involve harsh side effects. Your skin might look slightly red and sunburned, and you may experience mild tingling, irritation, and discomfort, but these side effects only last a few hours. You can resume your daily activities immediately, but please avoid direct sunlight because your skin will be photosensitive. You should also avoid tanning beds, waxing, shaving, and other hair removal techniques.

Results: Onset & Longevity

Laser hair removal produces cumulative results over several sessions. Your hair will grow thinner and sparser with each session, but most patients need 6 to 8 sessions spaced a month apart for optimal results. After 6 sessions, you can potentially achieve up to 90% hair reduction in the targeted areas. The results are mostly permanent, i.e., you may need the occasional maintenance session once a year.
