  • Underarms
  • Legs
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Bikini area
  • Ears
  • Neck

If you need laser hair removal in another area, like on your fingers or toes, ask the AK Beautiful You team about your concerns to get their personalized recommendations.

How does laser hair removal kill hair?

While traditional laser hair removal only targets hair growth at one phase, the Triton laser hair removal system uses multiple laser wavelengths to target hair at different stages of the growth process.

So, during a single treatment, the Triton laser targets deep hairs at the same time as brand-new hair follicles. The laser destroys pigment (the material that lends color to your hair) and causes scarring within the hair follicles. This causes the follicles to wither, which prevents them from growing back.

Is laser hair removal painful? 

No, laser hair removal isn’t painful at AK Beautiful You. The team of experienced laser specialists has advanced training in the use of the state-of-the-art Triton system, which has a built-in cooling system that offsets the heat of the laser to ensure that the procedure is virtually pain-free.

Is laser hair removal safe for my skin type?

Triton laser hair removal is unique because it can treat a wider range of skin types than other lasers.

Skin types are traditionally assigned according to the Fitzpatrick classification system, which includes six skin types ranging from white (Fitzpatrick type I) to black (Fitzpatrick type VI).

Triton can treat all Fitzpatrick skin types. Other lasers often can’t treat darker skin as effectively, because they often target both hair and skin pigment, leaving discoloration behind.

Triton’s higher power multi-wavelength system doesn’t harm the skin because it can selectively target only the pigment in the unwanted hair.

Thanks to the leading-edge Triton system, laser hair removal at AK Beautiful You is now faster, easier, and more effective. To remove your unwanted hair in a short series of treatments, call the office or click on the online appointment maker now.
