Light-based technology emits light energy that penetrates deep into the skin to reach the hair root.
The heat stuns the active hair follicles, which breaks the hair growth cycle and helps prevent future hair growth.
The treated hair falls out within 7-10 days.
How It Works
We Put Energy Where it Counts
We've engineered our treatment windows using cutting-edge filters - similar to what professional devices use - to help spread the energy evenly across the window. This provides more uniformity of energy output and reduces the "hot spots" that are commonly found on traditional treatment windows.
Only LumaRx™ has ComfortFilter™ technology that blocks harmful UV energy as well as infrared energy. This allows us to focus the light energy for safe, effective, comfortable treatments. Anatomy of Your Hair
Your hair is comprised of the hair shaft, which is what you see on the surface of your skin...
the follicle, which is below the skin's surface, and the papilla, which is at the root, near the follicle.
This papilla area is the focus of IPL treatments because it contains the living part of the hair and must be targeted in order to prevent future growth. Your Hair Growth Cycle
At any given time, you will have active hair that is growing; hair that is resting or not growing; and hair that is in a transitional phase between active and resting.
In order to effectively target hair for removal, the hair must be in the active growth phase. Approximately 50% of hair is in the active growth phase at any time. This means that you can treat the majority of your hair, but it is also important to perform follow-up treatments to target hair that may have been in a resting or transitional phase.
*Individual results vary. In a clinical study, the upper quartile of treatment sites averaged 94.3% fewer hairs 12 months after just three treatments. On average, all treatment sites averaged 66% fewer hairs 12 months after just three treatments
