Men and women have struggled for years with the removal of unwanted hair from the face, underarms, bikini, legs, and other parts of the body. Today, hair reduction (sometimes called permanent laser hair removal) is easier than ever with DiolazeXL by InMode. Springs Aesthetics offers laser hair removal for men and women in Colorado Springs, South Denver, Castle Rock, and the surrounding areas of Colorado.

What is DiolazeXL?

DiolazeXL is the new champion in the laser hair removal arena. DiolazeXL is the FIRST high-speed diode hair removal system to deliver uncompromised power and pulsing to tissue (30J/30msec up to 40J ) with high speed (4 cm2/sec) in the same session. Unlike painful electrolysis or waxing, these systems use a diode laser, or a diode/RadioFrequency (RF) combination, to remove unwanted hair.

Diode scanning technology and built-in safeguards provide a unique combination of high-tech sophistication with speed, efficacy, and safety. Clinicians can benefit from this first and only combination of speed, efficacy, safety and comfort to optimize their hair removal revenue. The DiolazeXL allows for the safe and effective consistent treatment of large areas in the same session.

What Are the Benefits of Laser Hair Removal?

There are many benefits to laser hair removal with DiolazeXL, including:

  • Gold-standard wavelength, pulsing, and power for optimal results and maximal safety
  • Reduction in clinician treatment time from built-in diode pulse guide scanner and high pulse repetition rate at all energy levels
  • Powerful enough to target and treat even the most stubborn hair
  • Virtually painless due to strong, built-in cooling
  • Can treat up to skin type VI

What Areas Are Treated with Laser Hair Reduction?

Any area of the body that grows hair can be treated with laser hair reduction. This includes the face, bikini, underarms, back, chest, legs, arms, or any other areas. Prior to receiving a treatment, you should closely shave the area to be treated so that the laser can target the hairs better.

What is a Laser Hair Reduction Treatment Like?

Before you begin a laser hair reduction series, you will discuss the procedure with one of spa aestheticians, technicians, or nurses, sign a consent, and if desired, take pre-treatment photos. On the day of your treatments, it is best if you come in with the area(s) shaved that day. (This allows the laser to penetrate the follicle better, as it’s attracted to melanin and color. Unshaved or areas shaved a few days prior will focus the laser at the surface hairs, rather than at the follicle depth.)

A Zimmer Cooling System can be used to the area being treated to reduce any associated discomfort. Many offices charge extra for topical anesthetics but we have always believed that your comfort should come first, so we include this at no charge for any procedures in our offices. The topical cream is kept on for about 15 to 20 minutes.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect from a Laser Hair Reduction Treatment?

Your skin may appear slightly red or warm for a few hours after the treatment, similar to a light sunburn. Rash-like mild edema or erythema may be present. You can apply hydrocortisone to these sites. Hair loss will be most evident 10 to 14 days after each treatment. Makeup can be applied immediately after a treatment and you can resume any normal activities.

There is no downtime with this procedure. You should have realistic expectations and remember that multiple treatments are needed. A minimum of six treatments are usually done in each series. Over time you should notice less growth, and see that remaining hairs are lighter, shorter, and thinner than before.

Follow-up treatments will be needed in the future and are offered at a discounted rate after the initial treatment package is completed. Most often people elect to have maintenance procedures done every six to 12 months, depending upon your hair growth cycles and the treated area.

How Much Does Laser Hair Reduction Cost?

The best way to determine your price would be to visit us for a consultation. Laser hair reduction is priced per area and we will pre-quote the amount to you prior to beginning your treatments.  A series consisting of 6-8 treatments may be required for maximal benefit.

We sell all our packages in a series of six, eight or ten sessions depending on how many treatments the aesthetician believes you will need based on your skin and hair type. After your initial series of treatments is completed, maintenance priced treatments are offered at significantly reduced rates.

Though patients often feel that laser hair removal can be pricey, when documented and compared to ongoing prices of shaving or waxing, the cost-benefit becomes very apparent. Our prices are based upon our technicians’ high level of experience, the care you receive, our value-added benefits, the direct supervision of a board-certified physician, and the consumable costs for our treatments.

While other offices may offer different pricing structures, we are confident that you will not receive the same level of care from any other facility. To help keep our services more affordable, Springs Aesthetics works with CareCredit® and Alphaeon® to offer our patients with financing options for their laser hair removal treatments and other services.
