Many people struggle with hair growth that is hard to manage using traditional methods like shaving, tweezing and waxing. If you are looking for a solution that is long lasting, safe and effective, laser hair reduction may be the answer.
Laser treatments are virtually painless and performed as a comfortable in-house procedure. During your consultation, your Truyu Provider will evaluate the areas you would like to treat to determine if laser treatment is a good option for you.
Unlike shaving, plucking and waxing, laser hair removal is safe for all skin types. It removes unwanted hair at the root, preventing regrowth. It also minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Laser treatment is also effective at lightening melasma, which are patches of discoloration that can be caused by birth control, pregnancy or hormone replacement.
A neodymium-doped laser with an yttrium aluminum garnet crystal emits short pulses of light that are absorbed by the endogenous dye melanin in your hair follicles. The melanin is then converted into thermic energy, which disables and destroys the follicles without damaging the surrounding tissue or blood vessels. The result is permanent, virtually pain-free hair reduction for both men and women.
The alexandrite laser emits a wavelength of 755 nm and penetrates deeper into the skin than the ruby laser, allowing it to treat darker phototypes (up to phototype IV). It has variable pulse duration and a spot size of 18 mm. It also has a cooling system that uses gel, air or sapphire in the hand piece to protect your skin. This system is also effective at reducing and removing pigmented lesions.
The diode laser is a popular and safe device that can be used to reduce unwanted hair on the body and face. It is a good option for those who want to avoid a painful waxing session, as it can be performed in our office and requires no downtime. It is also an excellent option for patients who are experiencing thinning hair, alopecia or male pattern baldness.
The laser technology used in this treatment is safe and effective for diminishing unwanted hair and permanently reducing hair growth. Our team uses cutting-edge laser devices, including the Soprano XL and LightSheer technologies. This individualized procedure is virtually pain-free and is performed as a comfortable in-house treatment. The ideal candidate for this type of hair reduction has dark hair, but even those with lighter or blonde hair can achieve good results.
Unlike traditional hair removal techniques, such as shaving and waxing, laser hair reduction does not require frequent sessions to maintain smooth skin. It is also a safer option, as the risk of ingrown hairs is eliminated.
A hand-held device is held against the skin while pulses of laser energy are delivered to the targeted area. The laser light passes through the skin to target pigmented hair follicles, which are then disabled. The hair will then go into a dormant or shedding phase and eventually fall out. The laser does not affect other hairs in the same area that are not actively growing.
This method of permanent hair reduction is a popular alternative to electrolysis, which can be uncomfortable and time-consuming. It is also less expensive than a lifetime of waxing. In addition, it helps eliminate the snags and cuts of traditional methods, such as shaving. It is also a good choice for those prone to in-grown hairs.
Laser hair reduction is safe and a great alternative to traditional hair removal techniques, such as shaving, tweezing or waxing. These methods are not only unsatisfactory, but also time-consuming and expensive. The light pulses emitted by the laser device penetrate deep into the skin, where they destroy the root of the hair and prevent future growth. This is the basis of its effectiveness and safety.
Lasers are very effective for people with all skin types, including darker phototypes. However, they are not recommended for pregnant women, cancer patients, or anyone with a tattoo or a scar on the skin. You should also avoid using numbing creams or taking photosensitizing drugs before laser treatment.
Alexandrite laser: This is one of the most widely used lasers for hair removal. It has a wavelength of 755 nm, which allows it to remove unwanted hair on all types of skin. This laser is also very fast, making it an ideal choice for people with busy lifestyles.
Diode lasers are another popular option for removing unwanted hair. They are safe for all skin types, and they can be a more affordable alternative to other hair removal options. They can also be more comfortable than other treatments, such as electrolysis. In addition, diode lasers are proven to be safe and effective for all skin types, even dark skin.
Unwanted hair growth can be a problem for many men and women, and traditional removal methods such as waxing or shaving can be time consuming and painful. Laser hair reduction offers a safe and effective alternative to these common hair removal methods. Using revolutionary light-based technology, this treatment can reduce the appearance of unwanted hair while leaving the surrounding skin unaffected.
The laser device used for hair reduction is known as an Nd: YAG laser, which emits short pulses of high-energy light. This light is then absorbed by the dark melanin pigment found in your hair follicles, which results in the destruction of the follicle and its ability to regrow hair.
After the treatment, your skin may appear slightly red or swollen, but these effects are only temporary and should resolve within a day or two. You will also be asked to avoid sun exposure after your treatment, as it is important to protect the treated area from the damaging effects of sunlight.
In order to ensure that your treatment is as comfortable as possible, you will be offered a numbing topical before your appointment. It is important to avoid shaving, plucking or waxing the area for six weeks prior to your appointment, as this will allow the hair follicles to be properly prepared for treatment.
