How does Platinum 3 in 1 (Alex + Trio) works?

Platinum 3 in 1 (Alex + Trio) is an advanced laser hair reduction system which safely and effectively reduce hair growth with a series of easy treatment sessions. The system comes with two probes, Alexandrite and Triple wave length probe, that can be effectively used for hair removal from all the body parts. Laser hair removal works by targeting individual hair follicles with laser light energy that is absorbed by the pigment in the hair shaft. Once absorbed, the laser energy travels to follicle and begins damaging the hair growth mechanisms. Over time, this causes the follicle to stop growing new hair. Platinum 3 in 1 uses advanced built-in skin cooling mechanism to ensure that you remain comfortable and pain free during treatment.

Which conditions are suited for Laser hair removal treatment?

  • Aesthetic purposes
  • Unwanted male patterned hair growth in female (Hirsutism)
  • Hairy external ear (pinna)/ Hypertrichosis
  • Medical indications like Pilonidal sinus (ingrown hair), etc.

Does the laser hair removal suitable for all the skin types?

Light skin with dark hair (Fitzpatrick skin types I -IV) achieve the best results due to lack of melanin pigment in the skin and abundance of melanin to absorb laser energy in the hair follicle. The advanced technology in Platinum 3 in 1 allows it use for wide variety of skin types safely and effectively.

What areas can be treated with Platinum 3 in 1 (Alex + Trio)?

The advanced technology of Platinum 3 in 1 facilitates its use for all the body surfaces ranging from small and delicate facial area to large areas of the body, safely and effectively. Laser hair removal is commonly performed on areas like:

  • Upper lip
  • Ear lobule & Pinna
  • Chin
  • Shoulders
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Abdomen
  • Arm pit
  • Legs
  • Bikini zone

How many sessions are required to achieve the optimal result?

The hair is sensitive to laser treatment during the anagen phase of hair growth cycle; therefore, multiple sessions will be necessary to address all the hair follicles when they are most sensitive to treatment. 4 to 6 sessions spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart are the minimum required to achieve adequate results. Duration of each session depends upon the body part under treatment. Maintenance treatment maybe required after a year or so to get rid of small vellus hair.
