Laser Hair Removal?
Many find constantly dealing with unseemly hair to be annoying, having to constantly shave or wax your legs or armpits, or if you have unwanted upper lip hair, ungainly back or chest hair. Laser hair removal could be a solution to these problems, allowing you to have peace of mind when it comes to your body hair.
Laser hair removal is just what it sounds like, it is the use of laser light to remove hair from the body. It sounds simple, but it is still a medical procedure that requires training to perform. Unlike traditional methods such as waxing, shaving, bleaching, or using depilatory creams laser removal is permanent as it gets to the root of the problem, destroying hair follicles completely.
Since it is a permanent solution to unwanted hair, laser removal could save you money in the long run, as the average person spends $30,000 and 1400 hours over their lifetime on shaving and waxing.
LightRx offers affordable and effective laser removal treatment for face and body hair.
How Does Laser Removal Work?
Laser hair removal does not just disintegrate the hair outside the skin or cause the existing hair to fall out, rather it destroys the hair at the root and renders the hair follicle inactive. Hair has three phases of growth but is only affected by laser light when it is in the anagen, or active growth phase. That is because hair follicles in the active growth phase have the most melanin and it is the melanin that attracts the energy from the laser.
During treatment, laser energy is directed toward the area being treated. It deeply penetrates the skin and the energy from the laser is transformed into heat, until the follicle reaches the critical temperature that destroys it and prevents further hair growth. While the follicle is impaired, the surrounding skin is unaffected and, in fact, is often improved. Because of the nature of the procedure, laser hair removal leaves the skin feeling smooth. There are no nicks, stubble, razor bumps, or ingrown hairs after the procedure.
Laser Hair Removal requires a series of treatments because it is only effective on hair follicles in the active growth phase. Growth cycles for hair changes from body area to body area. Facial hair typically grows more quickly, and body hair typically has a longer growth cycle. Length between treatments can vary from 4-8 weeks.
With each treatment, hair is reduced and for most clients’ best results are seen after eight sessions. The actual number of sessions needed will differ depending on your hair color, hair type, body area, and skin tone.
If you feel additional treatments are needed, we will continue to treat the purchased area at 10% of the per treatment price, until you are satisfied with your results. Many clients enjoy upwards of 15% hair reduction after just a single treatment, and some are 90-95% hair-free in just eight treatments.

Is Laser Hair Removal Safe?
Yes, laser hair removal is safe, although you should avoid treatments if you are pregnant or any treatments too close to the eyes. Some minor side effects are slight skin irritation or swelling and temporary pigmentation change. Much like with waxing, these side effects should subside within hours after treatment, if they do not contact your doctor.
As for during the treatment you may experience some minor pain. People typically compare the feeling to a rubber band snapping against the skin. Some areas of the body can be more sensitive (underarms, bikini, or upper lip) and every client’s tolerance is different. Compared to waxing as an alternative, laser hair removal can offer less discomfort and most clients find treatment quite tolerable.
How to Prepare for a Laser Hair Removal Treatment?
Some people believe that they should not shave before a treatment, but it is fine to shave between your treatments.
However, you should not pluck, wax, tweeze, bleach, or use depilatory creams between treatments because if the shaft of the hair is removed there is no conduit for the laser light to reach the follicle. This is due to the natural hair growth cycle and the nature of the treatment. When you shave you activate the growth cycle and make the treatments more effective.

On average at LightRx laser hair removal treatments start at $120 per treatment. However, everyone has different hair and hair growth pattern.
