The Alex TriVantage laser is used for tattoo removal as well as for a variety of pigmented lesions. Common pigmented lesions treated with the Alex TriVantage laser are sun and age spots. This laser is quick, safe, and clinically proven to remove pigment with minimal discomfort. The Alex TriVantage laser works by producing intense light that targets the melanin in the skin, breaking the pigment into microscopic particles that the body then absorbs. Below are some commonly asked questions about the Alex TriVantage laser.
What is treatment like?
Treatment with the Alex TriVantage laser varies from patient to patient based on the type of pigmented lesion being treated. For example, patients with small age and sun spots will require many less pulses than a patient seeking removal of a large tattoo. The sensation of the TriVantage laser feels similar to the snap of a rubber band against the skin. During treatment, patients are required to wear protective eye wear. The degree of discomfort varies with each patient, depending on their pain threshold. For tattoo removal, we provide a topical numbing solution to help manage any discomfort.
What should I do post-treatment?
It is recommended that patients apply ice to the area to help soothe any redness or swelling that may occur. Patients should avoid causing abrasion to the area for a few days. Finally, patients should apply ample sunscreen to the area for a least a week following treatment.
