Laser Hair Removal in Phoenix, AZ
Most of the improvements in cosmetics are evolutionary but the new Emvera Diolux laser for laser hair removal is revolutionary. Its unique features make it the best option available today for hair removal. We offer it exclusively at Arizona Facial Plastics, where we perform laser hair removal for patients in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Gilbert and the surrounding areas of Arizona.
What is the Emvera Diolux Laser for Laser Hair Removal?
The Emvera Diolux is a state-of-the-art, gold standard laser for hair reduction, permanent hair reduction and treatment of benign vascular and pigmented lesions. The Diolux features a variable pulse mode to treat all skin types and offers safe and effective treatment with less pain and much faster speeds than traditional lasers. The Diolux provides high power, high speed and a wide, spot-size application not available with previous equipment.
- Shortened Operating Time
Emvera Diolux has the ability to operate at up to 10Hz, meaning a full back can be treated in minutes.
- Reliability and Lower Costs
Emvera Diolux utilizes a diode laser technology for long-lasting, reliable and dependable results.
- Virtually Pain-free
Emvera Diolux has a powerful chilled tip cooling system to minimize adverse effects and make the treatment virtually pain-free.
- Various Applications
Emvera Diolux allows the operator to change the pulse mode from CW to short, long or combined pulses, and a MultiPulse mode that can protect all skin types including darker skin.
The Diolux Specified Optical Device (SOD) uniformly radiates laser wavelengths for efficient and consistent treatments. The SOD makes it possible to deliver concentrated high energy at the follicle.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal is a treatment that will provide a lasting solution for unwanted hair. The device uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to target the hair follicles. This light is attracted to the melanin (color) and to the blood vessels of the hair follicles.
Why can’t I just have one treatment?
Some people can just have one treatment and get perfect results but this extremely uncommon, in our experience. Hair grows in three phases: Anagen, Catagen and Telogen. The Anagen phase is the hair you see, when the hair follicle is active and growing. In this stage, the hair follicle can be found by the laser, and destroyed. When the hair is in the Telogen, or resting phase, it can’t be treated with lasers.
For optimal results, laser hair removal treatments are recommended at four week intervals. Depending on the outcome, skin type, hair color, hair thickness, follicle density, genetics, sun exposure, and your own expectations, five treatments are recommended. After you’ve reached your goal, ongoing maintenance can be done as needed. Our licensed paramedical aestheticians here at Arizona Facial Plastics will provide you with detailed information to best suite your needs.
Real Patient Testimonials
I love everyone at AZ Facial Plastics. From the moment I walk in I’m greeted with a friendly face. I have gotten Botox by Dr MaGee & she always does a great job. I’m currently on session 4 of 8 of laser hair removal & am currently on the 3rd session of my micro needling laser MD package, both of these done with Anais. I have not had any issues, she’s gentle, professional and kind. I’ve loved everything I’ve had done at AZ Facial Plastics. No one has ever made me feel like I needed a service, they’ve never pushed me into anything & have been able to give me suggestions based on my questions. I’ve never felt insecure. I think that is something hard to balance in this profession and they’ve done a good job. Highly recommend!

What Areas Can Be Treated With Laser Hair Removal?
Almost any area can be treated. The most popular areas are:
- Limbs (Underarms, arms, legs, hands, feet)
- Face (Cheeks, beard, nose, eyebrows)
- Neck (back of neck around hairline, front)
- Body (Bikini, Chest, back, abdomen, shoulders)
- Many other areas, just ask!
What Can I Expect During Laser Hair Removal?
When you come in, you must have the area that we are going to treat shaved beforehand. Once the skin is cleansed, a light layer of gel is applied. The gel will be cool, and will allow the handpiece to glide across the skin. Laser goggles will be worn to block the light. The handpiece will slowly heat up the skin, while targeting the pigment and the blood vessels in the hair follicle, and destroying it. Our machine is the latest technology in laser hair removal. It has internal cooling that keeps the skin from overheating (can causing more pain) than older machines. The first treatment is the most uncomfortable and subsequent treatments are significantly more tolerable. This is because with each new treatment, you have less hair to react with the laser! In fact, many of our patients fall asleep during their treatment.
What to Expect After the Procedure
Following the treatment, the skin could be slightly red similar to razor burn. Some of your sun spots or freckles may get darker and then lighten. It is possible that there will be hair lying on the surface of the skin. It is acceptable to continue to shave the area but do not wax or tan until you are done with your series of hair removal treatments. After a few weeks, you will notice that the area has less hair, and you might be shaving less often.
