Permanent Laser Hair Removal That Lasts

"I was so happy I came to Chicago Aesthetics. I hated shaving and now I don't have to thanks to coming here for laser hair removal."

At Chicago Aesthetics, we use the latest laser hair removal treatment by Diolaze. It’s safe to use on all skin types and most areas of the body. The Diolaze technology targets and treats unwanted hair.

Unlike other forms of hair removal such as shaving, waxing, or plucking which only temporarily remove the hairs, laser hair removal targets the hair follicle itself for a more permanent result.

Our licensed medical aestheticians will determine the treatment plan that’s best for you.   Laser treatments should only be performed by appropriately trained, experienced physicians or licensed estheticians. When done appropriately, laser hair removal is a safe and effective procedure with a very high satisfaction rate.

Pricing starts at $99 for a small area, per treatment. Contact our office to schedule a consultation today!

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

At Chicago Aesthetics, we use the latest laser hair removal technology available on the market DiolazeXL.

DiolazeXL laser hair removal is a non-invasive, advanced laser hair removal procedure that safely and gently removes unwanted hair. The diode laser beam passes through the skin to the hair follicles and heats up the root of the hair, which stunts future hair growth. Each treatment can take anywhere from 15 minutes to 45 minutes and is customized to your specific concerns.

Diolaze combines safety, patient comfort, speed, and efficacy. Patients can achieve permanent hair reduction while sitting through shorter treatments. Diolaze can target large areas and treat even the most stubborn hair. It is fast and causes minimal pain due to the built-in cooling surface.

Laser Hair Removal Benefits

Once the hair follicle is destroyed, the hair will not come back. Laser hair removal differs from electrolysis in that it is not limited to a single hair follicle at a time. The laser can target an entire area consisting of dozens of hair follicles in an instant, making it much faster and more efficient than electrolysis. Because the laser can only target hair follicles that are actively growing (20% of follicles at any given time), multiple treatments are usually necessary.

  • SAFE for all skin types
  • Permanent hair reduction with LONG-LASTING RESULTS
  • No more shaving, waxing or tweezing – SAVING TIME & MONEY
  • FASTER & LESS PAINFUL than older laser removal technology on the market

Before Your Laser Hair Removal Treatment

Your provider will sometimes recommend a test site before proceeding with treatments. We can proceed with treatment 3-7 days later as long as the test site does well.

To prepare for your laser hair removal treatment:

  • Do not tweeze, wax, use a depilatory or undergo electrolysis for 4 weeks prior to laser treatment. It is okay to shave or cut the hair with small cuticle scissors at the skin surface if desired.
  • Do not tan the areas to be treated for 4 weeks prior to treatment. Wear SPF 30 or higher sunscreen on the areas if you are exposed to the sun. Complications from the laser are greatly increased if your skin is tanned.
  • No Self-tanners, it can interfere with the laser. Avoid them for 2 weeks before treatment to the area to be treated.
  • Stop retinoids (Retin-A, Atralin, Tazorac, Differin, Epiduo, Ziana, Veltin, Refissa, Renova, and over-the-counter Retinol) 5 days before treatment on the face.
  • Shave the area before the treatment, either the day of treatment or the day before. Hair present above the skin surface can cause small burns. We may ask you to reschedule your treatment, if you have not shaved.
  • Stop taking Accutane for at least 6 months.

Laser Hair Removal: Aftercare

After your laser hair removal you may experience a little mild redness, dryness, itching, or swelling may be present after treatment and should resolve within 3 to 4 days.

  • Avoid abrasive scrubs, retinoids and glycolic acid products to the treated area for one week after treatment.
  • Apply SPF 30 or higher to the treated areas daily if they are exposed. Laser-treated skin can be more sun-sensitive for a few days to weeks.

Most people need at least 6 treatments to receive the full benefit. Treatments are spaced 4-6 weeks apart.

Diolaze needs to be performed every 4-6 weeks until the final results are achieved. Typically, patients will need about 6 treatments on average. The number of treatments you will need can vary based on:

  • Thickness of hair
  • Skin pigmentation
  • Hair color
  • How much hair needs to be removed

Each treatment can take anywhere from 15-45 minutes and is customized to your specific concerns. Because laser hair removal is performed as a series of short outpatient sessions, you should be able to schedule an appointment during your lunch break and return to work immediately afterwards. The duration of a session depends on how much hair you’d like removed, but typically lasts an hour or less. Aside from the noticeable outcome that laser hair removal offers, one of the treatment’s finest features is how convenient it is. You don’t have to come in during your lunch hour, of course, but it’s nice to know that you can.

Our laser hair removal technology has a built-in skin cooling surface which makes the treatment more comfortable compared to other devices. Most patients find the treatment to be tolerable and relatively painless.

You should notice an improvement even after the first treatment with the results gradually improving after each treatment.

Following your treatment, you can expect redness and swelling where the hair follicles were treated. The treated area may even feel like a sunburn. Cool compresses, high-level SPF, and moisturizer will help improve the feeling. It is also recommended to leave the treated area free of products such as perfumes, deodorant, or any product with chemicals that can be harsh on freshly-lasered skin

The cost of your laser hair removal treatment at Chicago Aesthetics can start at $99 and up depending on what areas need treatment and how many treatments you need.

We customize each treatment plan to each individual patient. At Chicago Aesthetics, have a variety of different treatments available that can be combined to give our patients the best results.

I'm super happy with the results...

I had gotten a few sessions of morpheus8 done by Alison and she made the whole experience comfortable and relaxing. It’s been almost a year and I’m super happy with the results and definitely recommend Alison for morpheus8.

Absolutely stunning...

Carol is amazing! I've had lip filler done by her twice now and she's so sweet. She made me feel totally comfortable and was always checking in to make sure I was doing okay. The other staff there is also so so nice. Everyone there makes sure you're comfortable and that you get exactly what you're looking for! 100/10 recommend Chicago Aesthetics and Carol!

Best esthetician!

Ariana DeJesus is the best aesthetician! She really cares about her clients and recommends the best treatments/products for their skin. Hydrafacial and dermaplaning have done wonders for my skin. I’ve seen great improvements and I will be coming in for facials with Ariana every month!
