Diolaze, by InMode is a type of laser hair removal system offered by Seaport Medspa that utilizes diode laser technology to target and remove unwanted hair. It is a non-invasive and FDA-approved method for long-term hair reduction. Diolaze works by emitting a concentrated beam of light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair follicles, which damages the follicles and inhibits future hair growth.
The Diolaze laser is designed to deliver controlled pulses of energy to the targeted area, while a built-in cooling mechanism helps to minimize discomfort and protect the surrounding skin. Diolaze is commonly used on areas such as the face, legs, arms, underarms, bikini line, and back.
