Diolaze Laser Hair Removal in Thousand Oaks
Diolaze is an advanced hair removal treatment that permanently removes unwanted hair –quickly, safely and gently. Unlike other laser hair removal systems that can be painful, the Diolaze handheld device contains a cooling plate that numbs your skin throughout the procedure. This means that Diolaze hair removal treatments are less painful and over in half the time other laser hair removal devices take.
Diolaze can remove unwanted hair on most areas of your body. Treatments occur in our Thousand Oaks office and there are no restrictions on activity following your treatment.
How To Get Bikini Ready For Summer – Diolaze Laser Hair Removal
How does Diolaze Laser Hair Removal work?
Diolaze is administered by Thousand Oaks plastic surgeon Dr. Kristina Tansavatdi. Dr. Tansavatdi uses a hand-held device that contains a diode laser beam. This beam safely and gently penetrates through your skin and heats up the root of your hair follicles to prevent the hair from re-growing. At the same time, Diolaze uses a Sapphire Laser cooling plate to chill your skin, so that the treatment is virtually painless.
What areas of the body can Diolaze treat?
Diolaze can be used on most areas of your body with unwanted hair. It can be used to permanently remove hair on your arms, shoulders, back, chest, stomach, bikini area and legs. Diolaze can also be safely used to permanently remove hair on your neck and chin.
How long do Diolaze treatments take?
Treatments occur in our Thousand Oaks office and take between 5 and 45 minutes, depending on the size of the areas being treated. Diolaze appointments take much less time than traditional laser treatments. The lower leg, for instance, can be treated in less than 10 minutes. Most of Dr. Tansavatdi’s patients require a series of 6 to 8 treatments which are scheduled four to six weeks apart.
Laser treatments work best on mature hair follicles. Spreading treatments out over three to six months allows enough time for all hair follicles to mature and be effectively treated by Diolaze.
How long does it take to see results?
Our Thousand Oaks patients begin to see a reduction in hair growth after the first 3 sessions. However subsequent sessions are needed to treat hair follicles as they grow. Data shows that most patients experience an 85 percent permanent reduction in hair growth after 6 treatments.
How safe is Diolaze?
Diolaze is manufactured by InModeMD, an Israeli company with an excellent track record of developing safe hair removal systems. The Diolaze system contains sophisticated monitoring technology and automatic shutoff systems to protect your skin.
This procedure is extremely safe when administered by a qualified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Tansavatdi.
Are Diolaze treatments painful?
The pain is limited and tolerable due to the built in patented cooling plate in the laser handpiece. Because Diolaze uses a Sapphire Laser cooling plate to chill your skin, Thousand Oaks patients do not require any topical or oral pain medication.
Are the results of Diolaze permanent?
Yes! Diolaze permanently reduces hair growth.
Am I a good candidate for Diolaze?
The best way to determine if you’re a good candidate for Diolaze is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Tansavatdi in our Thousand Oaks office. Dr. Tansavatdi can explain what to expect from Diolaze based on your hair color, hair coarseness, skin tone and the area being treated.
Can Diolaze be combined with other procedures?
Definitely! During your consultation, Dr. Tansavatdi will discuss your aesthetic goals and how to best achieve the look you desire.
