Laser Hair Removal
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
During laser hair removal, laser beam wavelengths pass through the skin targeting the hair. The high-energy laser light is safely absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the root of the hair. The light energy converts to heat, which destroys the tube-shaped follicles and prevents future hair growth without damaging the surrounding skin.
The laser treatment is customized to your skin color, hair color, thickness, and location of the hair. Our certified medical laser specialists use the state of the art Triton laser hair removal system from InMode, the latest and most effective laser technology for all skin types available today.

Does It Work For All Hair & Skin Colors?
Yes, it works for all skin colors! The state-of-the-art Triton system at Viva Day Spa is is effective for all skin types, including medium and dark complexions (Fitzpatrick scale skin types I-IV).
You will get great results if have brown or black hair on your face or body. The Triton laser system is less effective if the skin and hair color are too similar.
The hair follicle needs pigmentation for the laser to effectively target it. Therefore, blonde and red hair are more resistant, and white/grey hair will not respond to laser hair removal.
What Does Laser Hair Removal Feel Like?
There may be very mild discomfort. Most people will feel a slight tingling or stinging sensation when the light pulses are emitted — similar to a rubber band snapping against your skin. Some areas of the body are also more sensitive than others.
To minimize discomfort, theTriton laser hair removal applicator has a cooling sapphire tip that keeps the skin cool before, during, and after treatment. Numbing gel (Lidocaine) is also available upon request.
How Long Does A Session Last?
Laser hair removal at Viva Day Spa 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.
Best of all, there is no downtime. So you can return to your daily activities immediately following your session.
How Many 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 that all hair is treated.
Your certified 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 treatment sessions, spaced 4-8 weeks apart. Most people will need a touch-up session annually to maintain improvement.
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.
Before Treatment Preparation
- Do not bleach, wax or tweeze hairs 2-4 weeks before your 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 Are The Benefits?
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, hair-free skin.
