Laser Hair Removal for Home Use
TRIA Laser Hair Removal SystemThe TRIA Laser Hair Removal System is a safe and FDA-cleared laser hair removal device for home use. This laser hair removal system is an effective and easy way for suitable persons to obtain laser hair reduction in the privacy and convenience of their home. The results are lasting and eliminating the need for shaving, waxing and hair removal appointments.
The TRIA laser removal system uses the same diode technology as professional lasers and it delivers power levels which have been shown in clinical research to deliver permanent hair reduction. TRIA invented the proffesional laser hair removal technology in 1993 and their professional lasers are recognized as the gold standard among physicians. Since then the TRIA scientists team optimized the technology and modified it to be safe for home use.
The TRIA laser works on the principle of selective photothermolysis: beams of laser energy are absorbed by the dark pigment in the hair and converted into heat which disables the hair follicle and prevents it from growing new hair. This process is most effective on hairs during their growing phase (anagen phase). Since most hairs cycle through the anagen (active), catagen (transitional), and telogen (resting) phases over a six month period of time, one treatment a month for during 6-8 months is necessary to achieve complete results.
The TRIA Laser Hair Removal System is cleared for use without a prescription by the FDA. When used as directed, the laser is proven to be safe and effective for light to medium skin tones on medium to dark hair. A skin chart on the box of the home-use laser shows the range of suitable skin tones. A skin sensor is provided to confirm the skin tone and unlock the laser before a treatment.
The TRIA system can not be used on medium to dark brown skin because it is designed to react with the dark pigment of the hair. Dark brown and black skin might absorb too much of the laser's energy and heat and cause skin damage. The laser's skin sensor will detect if your skin is too dark and the laser will not unlock. Lighter hair (light brown, blonde, red or gray) will not absorb enough laser energy to disable the hair follicle, because the laser is activated by darker color levels in the hair.
The TRIA hom-use laser hair removal system is available from TRIABEAUTY.
