Q & A

Pure Lux

What is laser hair removal?

Laser technology produces a concentrated beam of energy that passes through the skin and is absorbed by the pigment in hair follicles, which destroys the hair. Pure Lux uses the Cynosure Elite+™ system. This clinically proven technology provides two wavelengths in one system to safely remove unwanted hair.

Less advanced lasers aren’t recommended for all skin types because dark or tanned skin pigment absorbs high levels of the laser energy. This increases the risk of burns or other unwelcome side effects. The Elite+ system, as well as the skill of the Pure Lux aestheticians effectively decreases this risk, making it safe and effective for all skin tones.

The Elite+ system also allows more flexibility in targeting larger areas, which dramatically decreases the length of treatment sessions for areas such as the legs or back. Both men and women find laser treatment to be an effective method for shedding unwanted hair, even in regions where the skin is sensitive.   

How many treatments will I need?

Hair has a distinctive growth cycle that’s divided into an active, transitional, and resting phase. Individual hairs move through these phases at different times over several months. Because lasers only target hair in the active phase, you’ll typically need several sessions to address the hair that was resting or transitioning at the time of your initial session.  Most require 3-6 sessions to achieve optimal results, but individual outcomes may vary. Schedule a consultation with Pure Lux today to discuss your goals, required preparation before treatment, and the expected outcomes.

How long does a session take?

Laser hair removal is fast. Smaller areas, such as the upper lip, can be treated in a minute or less. If you’ve elected to treat a larger area, such as the legs or back, or multiple areas are treated at once, sessions can last for an hour or more.

What is recovery like?

There’s no recovery time associated with laser hair removal. You may feel as if you have mild sunburn in the treated areas after a session, but this usually fades quickly. For best results, it’s recommended you avoid prolonged sun exposure for a time since your skin will be more susceptible to sunburn after a session. Otherwise, the Pure Lux team gives you detailed instructions about preparation and aftercare at the time of your consultation.
