What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a technique designed to reduce unwanted hair by using laser light to target and disable the hair follicles. This process aims to diminish hair growth over several sessions, offering a long-term solution compared to traditional methods like shaving or waxing.

How Professional Laser Hair Removal Works

Professional laser hair removal involves directing concentrated light into hair follicles, where it’s absorbed by the pigment that gives hair its color. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the follicle, reducing the ability of the hair to grow without disrupting the surrounding skin. This treatment is carefully performed using specific wavelengths of light, depending on the color of the skin and the hair.

The Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

  • Long-Term Hair Reduction: Regular laser hair removal services can diminish the volume and thickness of unwanted hair. This method provides a more persistent reduction in hair growth compared to conventional methods such as waxing or shaving.
  • Precision in Treatment: Professional laser hair removal targets hairs right down to the follicle, offering a level of precision that other hair removal methods can’t match. This precision means that the surrounding skin remains undisturbed, enhancing the overall effectiveness of the treatment.
  • Speed and Convenience of Treatment: Sessions typically last from a few minutes to over an hour, depending on the size of the treated area. Laser hair removal is a relatively quick solution for hair reduction and is easily integrated into our patients’ schedules.
  • Time-Effectiveness: The cumulative time spent managing body hair drastically decreases with laser hair removal. Once your series of treatments is complete, hair removal won’t have to be a part of your daily routine anymore. 
  • Reduced Ingrown Hairs and Irritation: Unlike shaving or waxing, which often exacerbates ingrown hairs and skin irritation, laser hair removal results in smoother skin and fewer ingrown hairs.

Our Laser Hair Removal Device

The InMode Triton stands out in the realm of laser hair removal treatment due to its advanced multi-wavelength system, which allows for effective hair reduction on a diverse range of skin types and hair colors. Its unique ability to combine different wavelengths in one session optimizes absorption by hair follicles, enhancing treatment efficiency. This device adapts to individual needs with settings that are specifically calibrated for different hair and skin characteristics, improving both safety and effectiveness.

  • Triton Duo Light: Designed for lighter skin tones, Triton Duo Light uses specific wavelengths that target finer and lighter hair more effectively. This precision contributes to better results in fewer sessions, reducing the overall treatment time for patients.
  • Triton Duo Dark: The Triton Duo Dark setting is optimized for darker skin tones, using wavelengths that minimize the risk of skin pigmentation changes while effectively targeting hair follicles. This allows patients with darker skin to experience more effective laser hair removal, even on sensitive or hard-to-treat areas.

Frequently Asked Questions About Laser Hair Removal

Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?

While individual experiences may vary, most people find laser hair removal to be less painful than waxing and is similar to a snapping sensation against the skin. Cooling methods and numbing creams can also be used to minimize discomfort during the session. The sensation is temporary and typically subsides quickly after the treatment, making hair reduction more tolerable.

What Areas Can Be Treated With Laser Hair Removal?

We can use the treatment virtually anywhere, and we offer face, leg, arm, underarm, back, and bikini laser hair removal. Different areas may require a different number of treatments to effectively reduce hair.

How Many Laser Hair Removal Sessions Are Needed?

The number of sessions required for optimal laser hair removal results varies depending on the individual’s hair type, color, and the area treated. Typically, patients see significant hair reduction after four to six sessions spaced a month or more apart with periodic maintenance treatments.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

Recent advancements have made treatments more accessible for a wider range of skin tones. Good candidates can include anyone wanting to remove hair that is not white or gray. Patients should have healthy skin and be well-informed about the treatment process and possible results. 

What Guidelines Should I Follow Before and After Treatment?

Before undergoing laser hair removal treatment, avoid sun exposure, waxing, and plucking for at least six weeks to prepare your skin and hair follicles for the procedure. Post-treatment, it’s important to use sunscreen and avoid any harsh skin treatments in the treated areas to protect the skin and optimize healing.

Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?

While laser hair removal reduces hair growth permanently, sometimes changes in your body can cause some hair regrowth. In this case, the hair is still typically finer and lighter than before and any hair regrowth can be treated with maintenance sessions.
