SEE IT IN ACTION

DOES IT REALLY WORK?

Laser hair reduction is an effective cosmetic treatment that leverages the power of technology and concentrated energy to target the pigment in each individual hair follicle. The pigment absorbs the light, causing damage to the follicle, but not the surrounding tissue. The weakened hair follicle grows back slower, thinner, and more sparse, ultimately providing each client with a permanent, stress-free hair reduction solution.

 

Our Lumenis laser hair reduction device is considered one of the most effective and advanced laser hair reduction machines available, and this is something that we pride ourselves on. We’re always looking for the best technology available to ensure that our clients can achieve all of their hair reduction goals.

Is There Any Recovery Time From Laser Hair Reduction Treatments?

Is Laser Hair Reduction Safe?


Laser hair reduction is a reliable and safe alternative to traditional hair removal methods. Laser hair reduction has been around for many years and advancements in technology and education has allowed Lux Laser to treat many skin types safely and effectively. Laser hair reduction is one of the most sought after non-invasive aesthetic treatments for women and men alike. During your consultation, we will go through your medical history to ensure you are the perfect candidate for this treatment.

Any area of the body can be treated safely and effectively with laser hair reduction treatments. Here at Lux Laser, we’ve performed thousands of treatments on areas ranging from the face, to genitals, and we always strive to ensure that the process is comfortable, stress-free, and easy to understand.




Is Laser Hair Reduction For Men Too?


Yes, laser hair reduction is effective for men and women. No one should have to deal with unwanted hair and with Lux Laser by your side, you always have a professional ready to help.




What Should I Do Before My Treatment?


Before your treatment, we advise all of our clients to refer to the following: - Avoid tanning and sunless tanners for about 2-3 weeks prior, during, and after completion of the full course of treatment. - Apply 50+ broad-spectrum SPF sunscreens regularly. - Shave areas to be treated 24-48 hours prior to treatment. - Do not pluck, wax, or perform other hair reduction treatments before, during, and after your treatment. However, shaving may be continued during treatment. - Inform us of any current oral or topical medications including antibiotics, as some photosensitive medication should be avoided prior to laser hair reduction treatments. - Avoid makeup or other cosmetic products the day of treatment. - Topical anesthetic (numbing cream) is available for sensitive areas. Clients must arrive 30 minutes prior to treatment for application.




What Should I Do After My Treatment?


After your treatment, it is recommended that you keep the affected area cool, while being cognizant to avoid direct ice contact. In addition, it is recommended that you avoid hot showers, baths, and saunas, along with strenuous activity that might increase your body heat. We recommend icing the area with cold wash cloths thoroughly. In addition, aloe vera can be used to keep the skin cool and lubricated, if necessary. Avoid any type of tanning and keep the treated areas protected from the sun by regularly applying 50+ broad-spectrum SPF.




What Does Laser Hair Reduction Feel Like?


At Lux Laser, we’re endlessly focused on keeping our clients safe and comfortable throughout their session, which is why we use state-of-the-art laser equipment to ensure quicker treatments with less discomfort than traditional laser hair reduction machines.




Are There People Who Shouldn’t Get Laser Hair Reduction Treatments?


Those who are pregnant, nursing, or taking certain medications should not undergo laser hair reduction treatments, or they must wait or be cleared by their primary care physician before starting treatments. Clients with certain medical conditions are also not considered to be ideal candidates for this treatment. Laser hair reduction works by delivering energy and targeting melanin, the brown pigment of the hair. We advise those with white, blonde, or red hair to speak with our technicians prior to treatment, as some hairs cannot be targeted properly.




How Many Laser Treatments Will I Need?


Laser hair reduction is effective when performed in a series of treatments. If you have never undergone laser treatment before for the desired area, we recommend a base of 6 sessions. You will see results after each treatment and depending on your desired results, additional treatments may be required.




What If I Have Super Thick Hair?


Laser hair reduction is quite effective for thicker and more dense hair. However, you may need 10 or more sessions. As an example, men’s beards will almost always need 10+ sessions. Teenagers and those with active hormones may also need 10+ sessions.
