Hair removal is something we’ve done throughout human history - from the Ancient Egyptians to the Victorian English, shaving has traditionally been the preferred method of hair removal. Shaving, however, has a number of cons, not the least of which is the short duration of the results.
Our experienced professionals at Pure Touch Skin Center in Glendale and Sherman Oaks, California, offer one of the best options on the market for permanent hair removal - InMode’s Triton Duo Light for lighter skin tones and Triton Duo Dark for deeper skin tones.
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is an aesthetic service that rids you of hair on your face or body. You’ll likely start to see results within a month of your first treatment, but you’ll need several treatments for permanently smooth skin. Unlike shaving or waxing, laser hair removal doesn’t immediately remove most every hair. Instead, laser light interrupts the hair’s ability to grow by weakening the root of the hair.
Lasers are specialized machines that use the power of light to treat various skin conditions and reduce or eliminate unwanted body hair. Some lasers can treat acne, scarring from acne, hyperpigmentation, and sagging skin. Any type of laser treatment will require several sessions over the course of several months, but generally delivers great results.
Lasers work best when targeting hair in its mature stage, allowing the laser to treat the hair at the root of the unwanted hair.
How is Triton different?
As revolutionary as laser hair removal truly is, the Triton Duo stands out. Unlike most laser hair removal systems, the Triton Duo safely treats a wide range of skin tones. With other laser hair removal systems carrying the risk of damaging the pigments in darker skin, Triton Duo Dark is specially made to protect the delicate pigments in darker skin.
Triton Duo is also one of the most comfortable hair removal systems. Many people who’ve undergone treatment claim that the laser doesn’t hurt at all. This is thanks to the cooling system that protects your skin by chilling it before processing the laser light against the skin.
What can I expect from a Triton Duo treatment?
If you’re a candidate for laser hair removal, you should be careful to limit the amount of sun exposure on the part of your body that is being treated with the Triton Duo. In the six weeks prior to each treatment, avoid using body wax or tweezing the area. Shave your treatment area with a fresh razor the day before you come in for your Triton Duo treatment.
On the day of your treatment, wear comfortable clothes. Your provider will make sure that you’re comfortable before applying a numbing cream, if you need. Your session will last up to 45 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. At the end of your session, you’re okay to drive or take transit back home or back to work.
After your Triton Duo treatment, your skin might feel like you’ve been sunburned. Keep your skin out of the sun and properly moisturized. A cold compress can alleviate some of the discomfort. If your skin begins to blister, or if the color of your skin changes, contact your provider.
