Permanent Hair Reduction
At unparalleled speed, the Palomar Starlux 500 is the Intense Pulsed Light treatment of choice for our hair removal.
Pulsed-light systems work by emitting pulses of intense lamp light in the hair follicles. The list is absorbed by the pigment in the follicles and converted to heat. The heat then loosens the hair and disables the cells responsible for growing new hair. The Palomar Starlux multiple hand pieces offer a variety of treatment options, such as permanent hair reduction on all skin types.
Comfortable Hair Management
Traditional waxing and threading treatments, which essentially rip the hair from the skin, can be quite painful. Most people, however, find the Starlux to be significantly more comfortable. In addition, since the pulses of light penetrate the skin, you do not need to let your hair grow out before you are treated. With Starlux treatments, you can remain virtually hair-free all the time!
Thanks to its advanced, technology, the Palomar Starlux System works several times faster than other light-based hair removal systems. A woman’s legs or a man’s back can be treated in under 30 minutes, and a smaller area, such as the underarms, upper lip or bikini line, can be treated in even less time.
What body areas can I get treated?
Any area, except around the eyes. The underarms, legs, back, bikini line, face, neck, etc., can all be treated … fast!
What are the treatment sessions like?
Treatments are quick and easy! After your initial preparation, your treatment will consist of a wand-like hand piece moved over your skin. The hand piece emits a light that disables the hair follicles. Most people perceive the light as a gentle “snapping” sensation. Once this is completed the treatment provider will wipe away any loose hair from your skin, and you’re ready to go.
What should most people expect after treatment?
Most people experience some mild redness and tenderness in the treated area shortly after treatment. This does not interfere with normal activities and usually subsides within a day. In some cases, the redness may last longer, but will still be mild and temporary. Your treatment provider will explain other, less likely side effects to you.
What is the difference between laser and pulsed-light treatments?
Pulsed-light systems and lasers are very similar and remove hair in basically the same way. However, the Palomar StarLux uses a new technology that removes hair up to 10 times faster than lasers. StarLux pulsed-light treatments can fit even the busiest person’s schedule.
How IPL and Laser Hair Removal Treatments Work
Highly targeted pulsed-light or laser technology destroys the structures that grow new hair, while our Advanced Contact Cooling technology promotes client comfort.
