Remove hair more quickly, efficiently and with less pain with Diolaze XL

Diolaze XL is effective for removing hair in the following areas:

  • Legs
  • Face
  • Arms
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Bikini area
  • Shoulders
  • Stomach

What is Diolaze XL Hair Removal?
Diolaze XL uses a focused laser to target hair follicles with heat and stop them growing hairs. It has a wide cooling plate to keep the skin cool and make the process more comfortable than other laser hair removal treatments. The machine has various ways it can be applied which Dr Strawford can use depending on which he deems the most appropriate for your needs.

The Diolaze XL can be used on all parts of the body and can remove even stubborn hair. Like all laser hair removal systems, it takes a number of treatments to totally remove hair and the number will depend on the type of hair you have, the colour and your skin tone.

Dr Strawford and the Skin Excellence Clinics team would be glad to speak to discuss if this is a suitable treatment for you.

Pre Treatment Care

  • Avoid any type of tanning 4-6 weeks prior to any treatment
  • Avoid irritant topical agents 2 – 3 days before treatment
  • Shave treatment area 1 – 2 days prior to treatment
  • All skin types eligible, this will be discussed during consultation and a patch test is required.

Post Treatment Care

  • Sun block to be used for 2 weeks post treatment
  • Expect peri follicular erythema (redness around the hair follicle) and oedema (swelling)
  • Stay out of direct sun light for 2 weeks post treatment
  • Mosituriser and make up can be applied after each treatment

What happens during the treatment?

The treatment area is cleaned before a water based gel is applied. Then Dr Strawford uses the Diolaze XL machine to first cool the skin and then he chooses a method to use and begins treatment. The laser pulses quickly and you may feel some heat and mild discomfort. Dr Strawford passes the machine across the treatment area a number of times to ensure it all gets treated.

How long does the treatment take?

Treatment time will vary depending on which area is being treated but generally the treatment is quite quick.

Is the treatment painful?

Discomfort is minimised because of the cooling system but it may feel a little warm but not too painful.

How many treatments will I need?

You should see hair reducing after each session but most people require 4 to 6 sessions to achieve the results they want. Monthly session are required due to the hair growth cycle.

How long does the treatment last?

Hair removed by Diolaze XL doesn’t grow back.

Are there any side effects?

There are no side effects.

How do I know if Diolaze XL is right for me?

Book a consultation with Dr Strawford at one of our Skin Excellence Clinics and he will talk through your situation and let you know if he believes Diolaze XL is the right treatment to permanently remove your body hair.
