Tria Hair Removal

Tria hair removal laser is a noninvasive treatment that uses highly concentrated light to penetrate hair follicles and inhibit hair growth.The Tria comes in 2 models, Tria Laser 4X and Tria Laser Precision. The Tria laser handpiece is directed at the area being treated and emits a beam of highly focused light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat and damages the tube-shaped sacs within the skin (hair follicles) that produce hairs. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth.

Ideal candidates are healthy individuals who want to reduce unwanted hair on the skin. The procedure can be used on several parts of the body except the eyelids, genitals and other areas with sensitive skin. Patients with white or gray hair may not have enough pigment targets to be a candidate for Tria hair removal laser. Patients under the age of 18 aren't suitable for the procedure.

The typical cost ranges from $300-$1000.The final cost depends on the size of the area to be treated, surgical facility fees, the surgeon’s level of expertise and the geographic location of the procedure.

The procedure removes unwanted hair on the skin. After the procedure, there might be mild tingling, itching and slight redness that dissipate within 24 hours. After a couple of days, the treated hair begins to fall out. Because hair grows in cycles, it typically takes 3-4 Tria sessions to provide significant hair reduction. To obtain the best results, bi-weekly treatments for at least 3 months are required. The results from the procedure are permanent.
