What is Triton Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a treatment that uses laser energy to remove unwanted hair from various parts of the body. It does this by targeting the pigment in hair follicles with concentrated light energy. The light is absorbed by the pigments in the hair follicles, which is then converted to heat, effectively damaging the follicle and inhibiting future hair growth. With just a few comfortable treatments, you have smoother skin with little to no downtime. At Coastal Cosmetic Center, we offer the latest in laser hair removal technology by using the Triton laser workstation.
What Makes Triton Laser Hair Removal Different?
The Triton laser workstation represents a breakthrough in laser hair removal technology as the first multi-wavelength laser hair removal system. Traditional laser treatments offer a single wavelength of laser energy, limiting the capabilities of treatment. By emitting multiple wavelengths during a single laser hair removal treatment, the Triton system offers the following benefits:
Greater Results in Fewer Sessions
The combination of wavelengths utilized by the Triton laser system can target hair at different stages of the growth cycle, including deep hairs and newly emerging follicles. This capability means patients can achieve greater results in fewer sessions, making the hair removal process more efficient and cost-effective.
Safe & Effective on All Skin Types
Thanks to its innovative design, the Triton laser system can safely and effectively remove hair on all skin types, from I to VI. This inclusivity is a significant advancement, making laser hair removal a viable option for a wider range of individuals. Previously, darker skin types, especially skin type VI, have been susceptible to complications such as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH). This has made laser hair removal an unreliable treatment option for darker skin types. The Triton workstation offers two configurations, each optimized for specific skin tones. The Duo Light technology is ideal for lighter skin tones, while the Duo Dark technology is ideal for darker skin tones, maximizing safety and efficacy for patients.
What Areas Can Be Treated with Laser Hair Removal?
With the Triton laser work station, laser hair removal is safer and more effective than ever before. It can be used to deliver permanent hair removal in areas that include:
Glabellar (area between brows)
How Should I Prepare for Laser Hair Removal?
Preparing for laser hair removal is crucial to ensure a successful treatment and minimize any potential side effects. Here are key steps to follow before your appointment:
Avoid Sun Exposure: Protect your skin from sun exposure for at least six weeks before treatment. Sunburned or tanned skin can increase the risk of side effects. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily.
Stop Other Hair Removal Methods: Avoid waxing, plucking, and electrolysis for at least four weeks before treatment, as these methods remove the hair root, which is the target of the laser.
Shave the Treatment Area: Shave the area to be treated one day before your appointment. This helps the laser light focus on the hair roots while minimizing surface skin damage.
Cleanse the Skin: Ensure the treatment area is clean, free of cosmetics, lotions, and creams on the day of your appointment.
What is the Laser Hair Removal Treatment Like?
During a laser hair removal session with the Triton laser system, patients can expect a relatively comfortable experience. The procedure’s duration varies depending on the treatment area’s size but typically lasts from a few minutes to an hour. Patients may experience a sensation similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin, which is generally well-tolerated. The Triton system’s advanced cooling features further enhance patient comfort throughout the treatment.
Is There Any Downtime After Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal with the Triton laser workstation typically requires no downtime. You can return to your daily activities immediately after treatment. However, the treated area may appear red and feel tender, similar to a sunburn, for a day or two. It’s important to avoid sun exposure and use sunscreen on the treated area. Some people might experience slight swelling or discomfort, but these symptoms usually subside quickly.
What Results Can I Expect from Laser Hair Removal?
The results from your laser hair removal treatment will vary depending on hair color, skin type, and the area treated. Furthermore, it’s important to remember that not all hair follicles are able to be targeted during a single treatment session, so results will develop gradually over multiple treatment sessions. Patients can expect gradual hair reduction in the treatment area, with a noticeable reduction in new hair growth in the weeks and months that follow your treatment. Once the hair follicles are destroyed through treatment, they can no longer produce new hair growth, meaning that the results are permanent.
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?
The cost for laser hair removal treatments depends on the number of treatment sessions needed to deliver your desired results, as well as the desired treatment area. All costs will be discussed during your consultation. For your convenience, we accept payment via cash, check, and major credit cards. We also offer financing options to assist you in paying for your procedure.
