Our Comfortable Laser Hair Removal Method – Questions and Answers
How Does Our Breakthrough Laser Hair Removal Method Work?
With traditional laser hair reduction, a single pulse of high energy is fired repeatedly at a small area of skin, destroying the hair follicle permanently.
With our breakthrough method using the state-of-the-art Soprano XLi, a laser sweeps smoothly and comfortably over large areas of skin, destroying the follicles but leaving skin undamaged. We offer the best result possible: Painless treatments that remove hair.
Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?
The sensation felt during treatment with St. Louis Laser Liposuction’s Soprano Xli laser has been likened to a ‘hot stone massage’ whereas other hair removal lasers have been said to feel like ‘a rubber band snapping’ or ‘a series of moderate shocks.’ Your trained technician runs the Soprano XLi in slow, relaxing sweeping motions across your skin. Because the laser features a comfortable dual chilled cooling head, this treatment usually creates a mild sensation of warm contact rather than one of discomfort or pain. Our laser hair removal method typically takes minutes per area (larger areas such as back or leg take longer).
There is less risk of side effect with the Soprano Xli because the ‘Gold Standard’ 810-nm diode laser heats the layers under the skin first, providing more protection to the dermis, even with patients with darker skins. The system also uses a dual chilled cooling head to further protect the skin.
What Should I Do/Not Do After Treatment?
Our pain-free laser hair removal method using the Soprano XLi means that there is no down time after your treatment. You can return immediately to your day-to-day activities. We would like you to wear sunscreen at all times, but especially if there will be UV exposure after treatment.
When will I see results?
Some people see instant hair reduction while others may have to wait a few weeks, depending where they are in active hair growth cycle. Typically, the hair will seem untreated for a few days, and then as it extrudes, the treated hair will simply fall out to be wiped away. This is because the hair is treated at the follicle, at the base, so it continues to push out for a few days.
How many treatments do I need with this laser hair removal method?
The number of treatments you require varies from person from person. We typically advise three sessions to start. We do not lock you in to a large multi-treatment purchase like the big chains do. Most people need from 5-7 treatments. Occasionally clients may require a few more, sometimes less, but we can assess this as you move through your treatment. Since hair is always in one of three phases, and only the active hair responds to the treatment, we recommend at least three treatments to treat each of those cycles before assessing or planning more treatments.
What is the Benefit of Diolaze?
Unlike traditional methods (waxing, shaving, bleaching or using depilatory creams), Diolaze laser hair removal impacts the root of the problem, rather than offering a temporary solution. Traditional methods will require treatment forever, while Diolaze only requires a few sessions. Most patients immediately notice a significant reduction in hair growth after a few sessions and eventually smooth.
What Is Diolaze?
Diolaze is an advanced laser hair removal procedure that safely and gently eliminates unwanted hair. Diolaze has one of the largest treatment spot sizes, making treatments convenient and fast. The combination of efficacy, patient comfort and speed makes Diolaze the leader in laser hair removal.
How Does Diolaze Work?
During laser treatment, a diode laser beam passes through the skin towards hair follicles. The penetrating energy then heats up the root of the hair, which in turn prevents future hair growth.
Does It Hurt
Diolaze has a built in skin cooling surface which is one of the largest for all hair removal devices. This makes treatment more comfortable than other devices, with most patients noting that Diolaze is virtually painless.
Why Do I Need Multiple Treatments To Achieve Hair Removal?
As with all laser hair removal methods, Diolaze requires a series of treatments. Laser hair removal works best when hair follicles are in their mature stage, however, at any given time, your hair is in various stages of growth.
How Many Sessions Are Required?
With each treatment, hair is reduced and best results are observed after four to six sessions. The number of sessions will differ depending on your hair color, hair type, body area, and skin tone.
Which Areas of the Body Can Be Treated?
Diolaze can be safely used on most areas of the body that have unwanted hair. Most commonly treated areas include: bikini, legs, arms, chest, back, shoulders, stomach, neck, chin and sideburns.
