Laser Hair Removal – Quick, Painless, and Long-Lasting
If you’re tired of shaving, waxing and plucking unwanted hair, laser hair removal may be a solution for you. It’s quick, painless and offers long-lasting results.
The neodymium-YAG laser emits light pulses that are absorbed by the endogenous dye melanin in your hair. Thermic damage to the pigment destroys the hair follicle and prevents it from growing back.
Laser hair removal uses pulses of light energy that target the dark pigment in the hair follicle. This heats the follicle and disables it. Hair regrowth is lessened and the hair becomes thinner and finer.
While laser technology can effectively reduce unwanted hair, it will not eliminate all your hairs – even for those with dark, thick body hair. For this reason, laser hair removal is not considered a permanent solution. Electrolysis, on the other hand, is a permanent hair removal option that has been in existence for over 130 years.
Tria’s multi-award-winning device uses diode laser technology preferred by dermatologists to permanently reduce hair growth with measurable, long term results*. This at-home treatment targets the roots of your hairs to ‘disable’ them and free you from shaving, waxing or epilating for good. *Dermatologist-proven, clinically tested to reduce up to 70% of hair regrowth after 2 treatments within 3 months. Results will vary by individual.
Unlike electrolysis, which requires individual hairs to be treated one at a time, laser technology allows many hairs to be destroyed in a fraction of the time. This makes treatment much quicker and more comfortable.
Laser hair reduction is effective for most body areas including the face, arms, legs and bikini area. The laser energy is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair follicles and converted into heat that inhibits future hair growth.
Our Light Sheer Desire diode laser is FDA-cleared for permanent hair reduction, meaning that with multiple treatments set a few months apart, the majority of hair follicles will be permanently damaged and will no longer grow hair. This means you will not need to shave or wax ever again!
Unlike electrolysis, which requires multiple sessions over the course of years, laser hair removal is a quick, convenient and virtually painless procedure. Most people who have experienced both say laser is less painful and faster than the older method.
Laser treatments work to diminish unwanted hair by targeting the follicles of your stubborn, unwanted hair zones, while not harming surrounding skin. As a result, it is one of the most popular cosmetic treatment options for hair reduction.
EpiLaser, a Nd: YAG laser with a cool tip, delivers light energy to the treatment area and destroys the follicles while leaving surrounding skin unharmed. This results in a long-lasting, permanent hair reduction* that is considerably more comfortable than other methods such as waxing, plucking or shaving.
Many people are concerned about laser treatment because of the potential risks. This fear is unfounded. International clinical trials have shown that laser technology produces similar ulterior results to light treatment (IPL) with significantly less risk.
Unlike waxing, plucking and shaving that can lead to ingrown hairs, laser hair removal is virtually painless. A cooling gel or a flow of cold air is used during the procedure to minimize discomfort.
During the procedure, you will wear protective eyewear as a handpiece is gently placed on your skin and pulses of laser light are delivered. You will feel a brief stinging sensation, but this discomfort is minimal. We use a diode laser with long pulses that effectively disable unwanted pigmented hair follicles while preserving the epidermis. FDA clearance indicates that this device works well for most skin types. This device is also safe for dark skins, even those with a deep suntan. However, you should not be pregnant or breastfeeding, or taking any medications such as steroid creams, topical anesthetics, photosensitizing agents, or other skin-changing products such as bleaching creams.
