Laser hair removal nyc

Laser hair removal, is the golden standard of hair removal, using state of the art laser technology to destroy the hair follicle, disabling hair growth for permanent hair reduction. Laser hair removal requires a skilled technician, who guides a hand held device that emits the laser, over the treatment area. The laser passes safely through the skin tissue and is absorbed by the melanin (pigment) within the hair. The absorption causes thermal damage to the hair follicle, effectively destroying it. Hair grows in three different stages, and in order for the laser to effectively destroy the follicle, the hair must be in the antigen (active) stage. because of this, several sessions are required to effectively destroy each hair within the treatment area. Laser hair removal is best for individuals who have lighter skin and darker hair.*

Advantages of Laser Hair Removal

Waxing removes hair at its root, so it produces longer lasting results than shaving, or depilatory creams. Waxing can also remove a large patch of hair at a time, unlike tweezing or electrolysis which removes hair a single strand at a time.  Waxing is most comonly used to remove hair from the legs, the bikini area, the armpits, and any other part of the body that has unwanted coarse, dark hair.*

Disadvantages of Laser Hair Removal

Like threading and tweezing, waxing requires some hair growth, about a quarter of an inch, for the wax to adhere to. Also, since the hair is being ripped out by its root, waxing may be more painful than other hair removal methods.

At Home Hair Removal Lasers

Tria is a hand held laser device that was cleared by the FDA in 2008 for at-home laser hair removal. Like traditional laser hair removal that is performed in a medical setting by a skilled technician, Tria uses a laser to penetrate the hair follicle, causing thermal destruction. To make “at home” laser hair removal less dangerous, the Tria hair removal system uses a far less powerful and less focalized laser than the modern lasers used by professional laser technicians. The latest Tria model has 5 settings of different laser strengths. Because Tria uses a weaker laser, this at-home laser hair removal method is intended to be used in adjunction with other forms of hair removal, specifically shaving. Threading is a form of physical hair removal which involves a skilled practitioner, who threads unwanted hairs from the eyebrow into a mini lasso using a cotton string. Once the hairs are caught in the thread, the practitioner removes the hair with a twisting motion. This method of hair removal pulls the hair out from the root, removing the entire hair follicle, producing results that typically last between 2 and 6 weeks. *

Advantages of At Home Hair Removal Lasers

Tria is typically less expensive than professional Laser hair removal. Tria is also more convenient because it can be performed at home. *

Disadvantages of At Home Hair Removal Lasers:

Tria can be dangerous for individuals who do not follow the instructions and abide by the recomendations of the device. Many individuals who have tried both Tria and professional Laser hair removal report that Tria is more painful. Tria is far less effective at removing hair and producing permanent results in comparison to professional laser hair removal.
