Shaving, waxing, tweezing, and plucking are so last year. When you’re done fussing with those old-fashioned methods, you’re ready for the last one you’ll ever need — laser hair removal.

It may sound like sci-fi, but laser hair removal has been around for years and is proven safe and effective. In fact, it continually ranks among the top nonsurgical cosmetic treatments, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

We take laser hair removal one step further at AK Beautiful You LLC in Anchorage, Alaska. Our experienced medical professionals use the Triton laser hair removal system because it offers unique advantages over older technologies. Here’s what you need to know about Triton laser hair removal.

Introducing the Triton laser hair removal system

All laser hair removal systems work similarly by directing laser energy through the outer skin layers and targeting the pigment in your hair follicles. The lasers destroy the follicles so the hair can’t grow. Laser hair removal treatments work best on people with high contrast between the color of their skin and hair, so light-skinned people with dark hair get the best results.

Because hair grows in cycles, you’ll need a series of laser hair removal treatments every few weeks to zap the hairs as they enter the anagen (growth) phase.

The Triton laser hair removal system has a few advantages over other laser systems; it:

  • Treats a wider range of skin types (Fitzpatrick types I-VI)
  • Uses multiple wavelengths to preserve healthy skin
  • Selectively targets only the pigment in your hair follicles
  • Doesn’t discolor dark skin

The Triton system also uses a built-in cooling device that keeps you comfortable throughout your treatment.

Why laser hair removal is better than the alternatives

Our AK Beautiful You LLC team trusts Triton laser hair removal because it offers a safe and effective way to deliver hair-free skin, and our patients love it for all its advantages over the old-school alternatives. Here are a few of the reasons they love Triton laser hair removal.

Less pain

No matter which hair removal method you’ve been using, you’ve likely been nicked, burned, or tortured in some way. Laser hair removal feels like a slight snap against your skin that most people say is tolerable and mild.


Triton laser hair removal takes only minutes per session, depending on the size of the treatment area. We can treat an area about the size of a quarter every second, so your underarms, lip, and bikini line are done in mere minutes — try that with threading or waxing.

Almost no side effects

Laser hair removal is noninvasive and nonaggressive, so it doesn’t damage your skin or expose you to sharp tools and harsh chemicals. The only side effect to speak of is mild redness at the treatment site, which disappears in a day or two.

Eliminates ingrown hairs

Most hair removal methods, like shaving, plucking, waxing, and tweezing, put you at risk for ingrown hairs. But our Triton lasers destroy the follicle, preventing new hair from emerging and getting trapped below the surface.

Low maintenance

Regardless of the hair removal method you’ve been using, they all require constant upkeep. But laser hair removal is practically permanent. You may need a yearly touch-up, but you can say goodbye to daily or weekly maintenance.

Great for all skin types and tones

Some laser hair removal systems only work for light skin tones, but Triton performs well on all skin types and tones without causing hyperpigmentation.

When you’ve finally had it with the pain, cuts, and time commitment that comes with old-fashioned hair removal methods, come to AK Beautiful You LLC. To get started on your Triton laser hair removal treatments, call us, or request an appointment online.
