Laser Hair Removal

What is Diolaze?

Diolaze is an advanced laser hair removal technology innovated by InModeMD designed to eliminate the pain of laser hair removal with its built-in cooling technology.

What Areas of the Body can be Treated with Diolaze?

Yes, InModeMD has proven to be successful in developing safe hair removal systems. Diolaze is extremely safe with zero side effects and can be used safely on almost all areas of the body that have unwanted hair. The Diolaze system contains a sophisticated monitoring technology with automatic shut off systems designed specifically to protect your skin from over-heating.

How Does it Work?

Diolaze safely and gently eliminates unwanted hair with an advanced laser hair removal treatment by permanently destroying the root of hair follicles. The Diolaze technology covers a large treatment area, which makes treatments convenient and quick. During laser treatment, a diode laser beam is targeted towards the hair follicles. The penetrating energy then heats up the root of the hair, effectively destroying that root and preventing future hair growth.

Diolaze can be used on anyone that has unwanted hair on almost any area of the body. It is safe and effective for all skin and hair tones and types, although results vary based on these traits.

Is it Safe?

Yes, InModeMD has proven to be successful in developing safe hair removal systems. Diolaze is extremely safe with zero side effects and can be used safely on almost all areas of the body that have unwanted hair. The Diolaze system contains a sophisticated monitoring technology with automatic shut off systems designed specifically to protect your skin from over-heating.

How Often Does Diolaze Need to be Performed?

Diolaze needs to be performed every 4-6 weeks until the final results are achieved. Most patients need 4-6 treatments, but this varies depending on multiple factors, including the thickness of your hair, skin color, hair color, and how much hair you want removed. Multiple sessions are required because Diolaze (and any hair removal technology) can only treat hair follicles that are actively growing, and only about 20-30% of your hair follicles are active at any given time. The 4-6 week waiting period is set to ensure that the next group of hair follicles is active.

What do I Need to do to Prepare for Diolaze Treatment?

Prior to your Diolaze treatment, you will need to let your unwanted hair grow out for a few days if you normally shave it. If you normally wax the area, you will need to wait a week or 2 until some hair has grown back to the area. You will also want to stay out of the sun- real or tanning bed- or use sun protection, and hydrate well. Well hydrated skin is proven to be healthier and promote faster healing.

What is the Recovery from Diolaze Like?

The most important thing you need to do after Diolaze is avoid the sun- both regular and tanning beds- and protect your skin from any sun exposure. It is recommended to wear a high-level SPF on the area where Diolaze was performed if there will be any sun exposure to that area at all. If it also recommended to leave the area free of products such as perfumes and deodorant, etc. or any product with chemicals that can be harsh on freshly laser treated skin.

When will I See Results?

Results vary from person to person and can be seen as soon as right after the treatment to about 10 days after the treatment. Some follicles will loosen immediately, and some will take time. This is all highly individual and without a clear connection to hair or skin type.

How Much Does Diolaze Cost?

The cost of Diolaze is different for everyone depending on the size of the area treated and how many sessions it takes to see desired results. Please call or email us with your inquiry and we will be able to provide you with a quote prior to treatment. We offer package discounts for sessions purchased in bulk.

What Should I Expect at My Appointment?

Your provider will first assess your skin type to determine the proper laser settings. You will lay on a treatment bed while your provider cleans the area to be treated and applies a gel to the area. Your provider will then begin the treatment, running a laser of the area with unwanted hair. The laser will penetrate through the surface of your skin to reach the hair follicles, while the cooling tip will cool your epidermis (outer layer of skin). After the laser has targeted all of the unwanted hair in the area, your provider will clean off the gel and apply a topical cream to calm the skin.

IPL Photofacial

What is a Photofacial?

IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. It is a procedure where a high intensity pulse of light is used to treat areas of the skin where there is sun damage, age spots, dark spots, rosacea, redness, acne scars, or fine lines and wrinkles. IPL is also commonly referred to as IPL photofacial, photorejuvenation, or broadband light.

How Does it Work?

IPL photofacial treatments use high intensity pulses of broadband light. It is a non-ablative treatment, which means that it doesn’t do any damage to the surface of the skin. It works by delivering intense pulsed light to deeper areas of the skin (the dermis) and leaves the superficial aspect of the skin (the epidermis) untouched.

Who is a Candidate for IPL Photofacial?

IPL photofacial is suitable for anyone who has areas of the skin with dark spots, age spots, sun damage, and rosacea. It also has indications for fine lines and wrinkles, red complexion, acne scars, and large pores. IPL tends to work best on patients with a light to medium complexion, who do not have severe sun damage.

Is it Safe?

IPL photofacial is one of the safest light-based treatments on the market. Photorejuvenation cause little to no pain during or after treatment, and any side effects on the skin usually vanish within a few hours and up to a few days after the treatment.

Complications are minimized to blistering of the skin which disappears in a few days, or in more severe cases, discoloration of the skin, which is normally limited to extremely dark skin tones where IPL may not have been suitable in the first place

How Long Does IPL Photofacial Take?

Photorejuvenation procedures lasts about 30 minutes to one-hour total, depending how large the area being treated is. Patients usually spend about 10 minutes with their numbing cream on before starting IPL to ensure a pleasant and pain free experience. A full face treatment takes only 10-15 minutes. Since you can apply make-up right after, IPL photofacial can be done on your lunch break or in the morning before you start your day since it’s such a quick procedure and requires zero downtime!

How Long Do Results Last?

The results of IPL can last for years as long as the skin is cared for properly with a sufficient skin care routine and sun protection.

How Often Does IPL Need to be Performed?

IPL can drastically improve your skin’s appearance within a week or two of the first treatment, but multiple sessions are recommended for most for maximum results. The number of sessions recommended depends on the area and severity of the problem and is highly individualized. The average patient undergoes 3 sessions per area treated, but there are instances where patients respond very well to just one treatment, or require more than 3 sessions to achieve the desired results.

What Areas of the Body Can be Treated With IPL?

You can use IPL on any part of your body that is affected by dark spots, brown spots, age spots, sun damage, acne scars, redness, or wrinkles. IPL is most commonly performed on the face, the neck, and the chest since those are usually the body parts that are exposed to the sun most often, but IPL can also be done on the arms, legs, etc.

When Will I See Results?

You will see the full effects of IPL within 2 weeks of your procedure. This will better help your provider determine how effective the treatment is on your skin and how many more sessions (if any) they recommend.

What Should I Expect at My Appointment?

You will meet with a provider first and foremost who will look at your problem areas and discuss expected results for your skin type and complexion. You will then have numbing cream applied to the area to ease any discomfort that you may feel during the procedure, although most patients report little to no discomfort even without numbing cream. Once the numbing cream takes full effect in about 10 minutes, the provider will return to perform the treatment. Once the provider is finished, they will cleanse your face of any products used during the treatment and provide you with any instructions needed for recovery. The provider will also let you know what to expect in the following days and will brief you on any warning signs.

What Do I Need to Do to Prepare for IPL Treatment?

Prior to an IPL treatment, you want to make sure you are moisturizing regularly, avoiding sun exposure, and wearing sun protection. You should avoid smoking, taking aspirin or other anti-inflammatory drugs and/or herbal supplements that can increase bleeding, and using any antibiotics or topical creams that increase skin sensitivity. You should also hydrate yourself well before and after the procedure.

How Much Does IPL Cost?

The cost of IPL varies greatly from person to person. It is largely dependent on their skin type and tone, the amount of damage to their skin, and the size of the area being treated. Please give us a call or send us an email to inquire about IPL pricing for your problem areas. 

What is the Recovery From IPL lLke?

Most side effects occur only within the first 48 hours. Your skin might feel a bit sensitive like you are sunburned. You will also notice blemishes and dark spots get darker for a few days to a week before they peel off and ultimately appear lighter. You can apply makeup immediately after the procedure and resume your normal routine as long as you protect the treated area from the sun by avoiding any sun exposure or covering the area if you need to be in the sun. Use sun protection and shielding at all times.
