What Is a Laser Hair Removal Session Like?Blog
Unwanted hair can be a real bother. Removing it can cost precious time, money, and still leave you feeling frustrated. Luckily, with laser hair removal, removing that unwanted hair doesn’t have to consume your time or drain your wallet. Forget waxing, painful razor burn, or pricey hair removal creams! Here at Synergy Wellness in Bakersfield, CA, we want to help you get rid of that unwanted hair effectively and safely using our innovative Diolaze treatment!
What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a treatment that removes unwanted hair using a laser that targets the hair follicles. The treatment is safe, as the laser is restricted to a narrow light spectrum that only targets the hair. This prevents skin damage while preventing hair growth and hair regeneration.
We use Diolaze laser hair removal treatment that is less painful and more effective than other types of lasers. The science behind this laser surrounds stopping the hair growth at the source instead of surface removal. By targeting those hair follicles, new growth is essentially halted, leaving you with smooth, hairless skin.
What Is Special about Diolaze Treatment?
The Diolaze laser is special because of the way in which it is able to penetrate the hair follicles, preventing hair regrowth. This laser specifically targets chromophores, (the portion of the molecule that gives hair and skin its color), and thus can get deeper than other laser treatments, making it more effective.
The Diolaze laser damages the molecules at the very root of the hairs which causes disruption, not allowing hair to grow or regenerate over time. Because this laser targets only the hair follicles, the skin around that hair will not be harmed or damaged. It also has other benefits in addition to removing the hair than other treatments.
How Is It Better Than Other Treatments?
Diloaze uses a diode laser energy to remove hair at the various stages of hair development, making it more effective than other types of lasers. It can be used while hair is at any stage of growth, but it works best when the hair is at its most mature phase. This laser can inactivate hairs, even those with high amounts of melanin.
The molecules at the root of the hair are specifically targeted which eliminates the hair from regenerating. The technology used is actually emitted an array of lasers that make smooth skin possible! It also has a skin-cooling surface built-in, which makes it a lot more comfortable than other devices that are commonly used in this type of treatment.
