At LUXE MedsSpa, we want you to feel comfortable about the processes we use for hair removal. The more you understand what your experience with us will involve, the more likely you are to feel great about the results! So we have outlined each step towards looking your best.
THE INITIAL TELEPHONE CALL
When you call, we will ask a few simple questions concerning the area of unwanted hair, as well as the coarseness and color of the hair. This will allow us to set up a free consultation for either Electrolysis or Laser Hair Removal. Seeing you will provide us with information needed to give you the results you desire.
THE FREE CONSULTATION
You will be asked to fill out a medical history, which allows the consultant to help determine if there are any possible medical reasons for the hair growth. (If there is a medical reason, we cannot prevent new hair growth, only remove present growth.) The consultant will explain the process and answer any questions that you may have. You and the consultant will then decide which treatment would best suit your needs, Electrolysis or Laser. If Electrolysis is chosen, you will be scheduled with our Electrologist. If Laser Hair Removal is chosen, then you will proceed with a Spot Test.
THE SPOT TEST
If Laser Hair Removal is the best choice, the next step will be a spot test. The spot allows us to test your skins reaction to the laser. Based on your skin type and hair color, we will adjust the laser to ensure the best results. The spot test allows us to treat the area as aggressively as possible without damaging the skin. Many Laser Hair Removal clinics do not do a spot test and therefore under or over treat the area. Under treatment will result in more treatments being needed. We do a spot test before each of your laser treatments.
Our medical consultant will first review any medications you are taking and any medical conditions that would prevent you from being a candidate for Laser Treatment. The first treatment is scheduled from 24 hours up to one week after the spot test. The duration of each treatment depends on the area being treated. Smaller areas take less than 30 minutes and larger areas as long as 2 hours. Most people will need from 4 to 6 treatments. Treatments usually range from 6 to 12 weeks apart.
Your skin will feel as if you were experiencing a mild sunburn for a few days. We will explain how to take care of your skin, which includes exfoliating the dead hair out. After-care products are available.
