Laser Hair Removal Q & A

How does laser hair removal work?

At Syosset Medi Spa, the team uses the Inmode Diolaze® to help you achieve permanent hair reduction. The technology is effective on a wide range of skin and hair types. Diolaze works on many parts of the body as well as the face.

Laser hair removal targets the dark pigment (melanin) within the hair follicle without damaging the pores or the integrity of the skin. The hair follicles are rendered unable to grow hair.

Diolaze is the gold standard in laser hair removal because it combines effectiveness, safety, patient comfort, and speed. 

What areas can laser hair removal treat?

Pretty much anywhere on your body can be treated with laser hair removal. This includes your:

  • Upper lip and chin
  • Arms and legs
  • Underarms
  • Bikini area
  • Back and chest

Men and women benefit from laser hair removal. The team at Syosset Medi Spa can treat multiple areas in one session.

How many laser hair removal sessions will I need?

You will need more than one session to get the results of smooth, hair-free skin. Laser hair removal treatments usually require four to six treatments, depending on the size of the area treated and the density of the hair there.

How do I prepare for laser hair removal?

You’ll need to skip any waxing, electrolysis, or plucking for six weeks before your appointment. You need the hair root to be present for laser hair removal to be effective. You can shave prior to your appointment.

Avoid any tanning in the weeks leading up to your sessions, too. Tanned skin is harder for the laser to treat. You’ll want to stay out of the sun after your hair removal sessions, as well. Your skin is temporarily extra sensitive to ultraviolet rays.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

The team at Syosset Medi Spa makes your laser hair removal experience as comfortable as possible. You will feel heat and tingling during a hair removal session, but most people tolerate the treatment quite well. 

The Diolaze laser features a cooling mechanism to protect the outer layer of skin and help keep you comfortable throughout treatment. The team offers cooling ice packs and gel following treatment to ease the sensation.
