The Root of the Problem – More often than not, unwanted hair problems start much deeper than just on the surface of the skin. With DiolazeXL providing a large source of power to large areas, it can target the root of the problem efficiently.
How does Diolaze XL work?
During the laser treatment, there will be a diode laser beam that passes through the skin toward your hair follicles. The energy will heat the root of the hair up, preventing any future hair growth.
What results can you expect?
After your first session, it is likely that you will need 4 to 6 more treatments to achieve your desired results. The number of treatments you will need to achieve these results will vary based on the hair color and type, skin tone and type and the area we will be treating. In just a few weeks after the initial session, you will begin to notice the hair growth slowing.
How much does Diolaze XL cost?
The general price range for a DiolazeXL procedure or multiple procedures will vary greatly based on several factors. These include the severity of the hair growth, your skin type and skin tone and how many treatments you will need to stunt all hair growth.
