Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a safe, effective aesthetic treatment that eliminates unwanted hair from anywhere on the body. Laser hair removal uses focused light energy to destroy the follicles of individual hairs, thus preventing regrowth and leaving your skin permanently smooth and hair-free.

Cataleya Aesthetics is proud to offer the Inmode DiolazeXL®, an advanced laser hair removal system with an integrated cooling system. This system allows for fast, effective, and painless hair removal in the comfort of the office.

How does DiolazeXL laser hair removal work?

The DiolazeXL laser uses a specially designed handheld device that allows the aesthetician to apply laser energy directly to the treatment area. Due to its larger size, DiolazeXL treats multiple follicles at once, a characteristic that places it above other laser treatments in terms of its efficiency.

The color pigment in the hair, the melanin, absorbs the laser energy into the follicle, damaging its internal structure. Some hair colors absorb energy more effectively than others, including darker browns and blacks. Laser hair removal isn’t typically as effective for white or red hair.

The Cataleya Aesthetics team does a complete skin and hair assessment during an initial consultation. They create a plan of care for you that is personalized and gives you the best chance at reaching your hair removal goals.

What happens during a laser hair removal session?

During your laser hair removal treatment, you lie comfortably, and your aesthetician applies a cooling gel. While you both wear protective eyewear, they pass the DiolazeXL device over the unwanted hair. You may feel a quick pop or snap, but usually, it’s virtually painless.

Depending on the size and number of treatment areas, your session may last anywhere from 5-60 minutes. For optimal results, you need six treatments spaced from 4-10 weeks apart.

You need a series of treatments because hair follicles all grow at different rates. During each session, your aesthetician treats and re-treats different follicles to inhibit hair growth in the entire treatment area effectively.
