Laser Hair Removal
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal technology is the use of an invisible beam of light combined with a constant source of heat. When the heat penetrates the hair follicle, it destroys its roots disabling its ability to grow hair again, while still preserving the surrounding skin. There are just a few steps involved in laser hair reduction. When actively growing hair is struck with the laser beam, it is either destroyed or sent into a resting phase. In order to treat the actively growing hair effectively and for optimum results, multiple treatments are necessary. This will insure catching each hair when it is in its active phase. Luxxery patients are offered a package of multiple sessions as the actively growing hair and the resting hair emerge at different time.

What is Laser Hair Reduction?
Laser hair removal is often referred to as a permanent reduction in hair growth. In the ideal patient, laser hair removal technology provides a permanent reduction of hair growth up to 80-90% of the targeted area, hence the term permanent reduction. It is worthy to note that laser hair removal has a low successful rate in treating grey, blonde and light red hair due to the lack of melanin in the hair follicle.
Timing of the procedure depends on the surface area of hair and how much the patient has requested to be reduced. After the procedure, treated skin may be mildly irritated. This will go away in one to two days. Treat the area as if it is a mild sunburn.
