How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
During laser hair removal, laser beams of the most common hair removal wavelengths pass through the skin targeting the hair follicles. The high-energy laser light safely targets the pigment in the root of the hair, converts to heat and destroys the follicle. This prevents future hair growth without damaging the surrounding skin.
What Areas Are Ideal for Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is effective for eliminating hair on all parts of the body, except for around the eyes. Common treatment areas are:

Does It Work For All Skin Colors?
Yes! The inMode Triton laser hair removal system at Viva Day Spa is is effective for all skin types, include medium and dark complexions (Fitzpatrick scale skin types I-IV). The laser is less effective if the skin and hair color are too similar. Because the hair needs pigmentation for the laser treatment to be effective, blonde/red hair are more resistant and white/grey hair will not respond to laser hair removal.
How Many Laser Hair Removal Treatments Will I Need?
Hair grows in cycles — some hair follicles are actively in a growth phase, while others are resting. Every four weeks or so, new hair will enter the growth phase. Laser hair removal only eliminates hair in its growth stage. Multiple treatments are necessary to ensure your are targeting the hair at the right time for permanent destruction.
Your medical laser specialist will help you create a custom plan based on your hair color, skin type and target treatment area. For best results, we recommend a series of 6 laser hair removal sessions, spaced 4-8 weeks apart. Most people will need a touch-up session annually to maintain improvement.
What Does Laser Hair Removal Feel Like?
There may be very mild discomfort, but most people feel no pain at all. Some areas of the body are also more sensitive than others. Viva’s Triton laser hair removal system includes a cryogen cooling system to minimize any discomfort. Numbing (Lidocaine) is also available upon request.
How Long Does A Laser Hair Removal Session Last?
At Viva Day Spa, laser hair removal is ultra fast. The total time depends on the size of the treatment area. For example, treatment of both legs usually only requires a 30 minute session.
This treatment requires no downtime, so you can return to your daily activities immediately follow your session.
What Technology Does Viva Utilize?
Viva Day Spa uses the latest, most advanced laser hair removal technology on the market today – Triton by inMode.
Triton is the first and only FDA cleared device to have simultaneous firings of multiple wavelengths on a laser hair removal system. It delivers a unique blend of three different laser wavelengths – Alexendrite 755, Diode 810, and Nd:YAG 1064
– in multiple outputs to effectively treat all skin types and hair colors.
What Should I Expect After My Treatment?
Slight redness and swelling will occur (a condition called folliculitis), which usually dissipates in a few hours. The treated hair will fall out anytime from 3-14 days after your laser hair removal session, leaving you with smooth hair-free skin until your next growth cycle. After each additional session, you’ll realize a reduction in the number of hairs in the treated area, with the hair becoming finer and lighter.

Frequently Asked Questions About Laser Hair Removal
What are the benefits of Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal causes permanent hair reduction. You will have less hair after each treatment, plus it will reduce the number of ingrown hairs and help prevent razor bumps, burns, and irritations. The hair in the treated area will also become very fine and lighter in color. The ultimate benefit? Smoother, softer skin.
Do I need to do anything special before being treated?
For optimal results, do not bleach, wax or tweeze hairs 2-4 weeks before laser hair removal treatment. The hair must be present — a very short stubble — with its natural hair color to be treated effectively. Avoid sun exposure, tanning and the use of sunless tanners. Arrive to your appointment with the area to be treated clean, freshly shaved, and free of product (all makeup and lotion).
What is the minimum age for Laser Hair Removal?
We strongly advise waiting until puberty after puberty since the body goes through hormonal changes that can cause re-growth. Parental consent is required for laser hair removal treatment for ages 13-17.
