Laser hair removal is a non-invasive procedure that helps you achieve hair-free skin. The medical provider uses a laser device to deliver laser energy into the unwanted hair follicles. The laser energy destroys the hair follicle and its root, thus preventing hair growth in that region. With laser hair removal, you can achieve almost completely hair-free skin after around 6 sessions. We perform laser hair removal in Clearwater using Diolaze, which makes the treatment suitable for all skin types, regardless of color.
What is laser hair removal?
No cuts, razor burns, or waxing pains
Laser hair removal is the ideal alternative to traditional hair removal methods, such as shaving, waxing, and tweezing. These traditional hair reduction methods leave cuts and razor burns that undermine your skin quality. Tweezing and waxing are also more painful, and they need to be repeated every couple of weeks. Laser hair removal can help you achieve hair-free skin, so you don’t need to schedule waxing appointments every couple of weeks.
How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal involves channeling laser energy into the unwanted hair follicles. Once the pigment in the hair follicle absorbs the laser energy, the laser energy converts into thermal energy and destroys the roots of the hair follicle, thereby stopping hair growth permanently. Laser hair removal can only target the hair follicles in the active growth phase, so you need multiple sessions spaced a few weeks apart to achieve completely hair-free skin. Your hair will grow out thinner and sparser with each session.

Your laser hair removal experience at Skinology
Your laser hair removal in Clearwater is an extremely simple treatment at Skinology. You should shave the targeted areas the day before your session — the treatment is only possible if your skin is shaved. You should also avoid applying makeup or other cosmetic products to the region before the session. The skin on the targeted area should be completely clean. Please arrive a few minutes early for the session.
You will have to wear protective eyeglasses during the laser hair removal session. The medical provider will cleanse the treatment areas and calibrate the Diolaze device according to your specific skin type. The handheld Diolaze device will be moved over the treatment areas to deliver laser energy into the hair follicles. You might feel like a rubber band is snapping on your skin, but the discomfort is perfectly tolerable.
What are the side effects of laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal involves minimal side effects, such as redness, tenderness, discomfort, and irritation in the treatment areas. The side effects dissipate within a few hours.
Is there any downtime?
Your laser hair removal in Clearwater will not involve any downtime. You may resume your daily activities immediately, but avoid exfoliation and direct sunlight and wear sunscreen.
When will I see the results?
Laser hair removal produces gradual results over several sessions. Your hair will grow out thinner and weaker after each session. Most people need around 6-8 sessions spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart to remove all the unwanted hair from a targeted area.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Laser hair removal is almost permanent. You might notice a few small hair follicles in the treatment area occasionally, so you may need one or two maintenance sessions per year to maintain smooth, hair-free skin.
