Mini IPL Skin Beauty System Hair Removal Device
The LumaRx Mini Hair Removal System is a new breakthrough product that uses Intense Pulsed Light (“IPL”), to remove unwanted hair at home. The LumaRx Mini Hair Removal System utilizes the same clinically proven technology as professional dermatologists and salons use, but optimized for personal treatment of smaller areas in the privacy and comfort of your own home. Unlike most at-home hair removal methods, the LumaRx Mini Hair Removal System doesn’t cut or pull out hair; it actually uses light energy to work below the skin’s surface to disable active hairs at the root. You should gradually notice fewer hairs in the treatment area within a few weeks, with results generally improving over time.
The LumaRx Mini Hair Removal System is intended for use on:
• Female Facial Hair (cheeks, sideburns, chin, neck areas, and above the lips)
• Male and Female Body Hair (underarms, bikini line, legs, arms, stomach and chest).
NOTE: the LumaRx Mini Hair Removal System isn’t for everyone. Please review the Contraindications, Warnings and Precautions to determine if the LumaRx Mini Hair Removal System is OK for you to use.
Light-based hair removal is a well-established technology that has been in use worldwide for over 15 years. The LumaRx Mini Hair Removal System uses this technology to flash your skin with an intense pulse of light. The energy in the pulse works under the surface of your skin to target hairs at the root, helping to break the hair growth cycle. Because the energy in the pulse of light targets dark coloring, it works best on darker hair. To avoid targeting (and possibly damaging) dark skin, you should use the LumaRx Mini Hair Removal System only on light-to-medium skin tones.
How Many Treatments are Needed?
Individual hairs go through a continuous growth cycle with phases of active growth
and phases of rest. Like other laser or light-based treatments, the LumaRx Mini Hair Removal System affects only hairs that are in the active growth phase. Your initial regimen should be spread out over 1 month to ensure that you target the most number of active hairs (including those that recently cycled from the resting phase).
We recommend that you use the LumaRx Mini Hair Removal System every other week, over 1 month (for a total of 3 treatments) on each area. If you have redness, blistering or other skin irritation in the treatment area after your first treatment, do not treat. Wait until the skin returns to normal before using the LumaRx Mini Hair Removal System again. If the irritation does not go away with 2-3 days, contact Customer Service.
Use the Treatment Record Cards to help keep track of your treatments. Results aren’t immediate, but you should have noticeably fewer hairs within 1 to 2 weeks after you start treatment. During this time, it may look like the hair is still growing, but it is actually being “pushed out.” You may or may not see these hairs fall out.
LumaRx is an over-the-counter device intended to provide phototherapeutic light to the body. It is also intended for the removal of unwanted hair by using a selective photothermal treatment. It is also indicated for the removal of unwanted body and/or facial hair in adults with Fitzpatrick Skin Types I-IV. LumaRx is also intended for permanent reduction in unwanted hair. Permanent hair reduction is defined as the longterm, stable reduction in the number of hairs regrowing when measured at 6, 9 and 12 months after the completion of a treatment regimen. LumaRx should only be used on LIGHT TO MEDIUM SKIN TONES. LumaRx comes with a built-in SKIN TONE TESTER that is designed to help prevent treating skin that may be too dark. LumaRx is most effective on DARKER HAIR.
LumaRx is intended for use on female facial hair on the cheeks, sideburns, chin,
neck areas, and above the lips. LumaRx can also be used on male and female body hair below the neck, including underarms, bikini line, leg, arms, chest and stomach.
The LumaRx Mini Hair Removal System is intended for use only on light to medium skin tones. To determine if your Skin Tone is suitable to use with the LumaRx Mini Hair Removal System, compare your skin in the intended treatment areas with the Skin Tone Chart. If it matches the Light to Medium Skin Tones, you can use the LumaRx Mini Hair Removal System. If your Skin Tone in the intended treatment area matches the Dark Skin Tones below, DO NOT use the LumaRx Mini Hair Removal System. The LumaRx Mini Hair Removal System also has a built-in SKIN TONE TESTER that is designed to help prevent flashing on skin that is too dark for treatment. Test each different area you wish to treat with the Skin Tone Chart and SKIN TONE TESTER before treating. Some areas are darker than others. If you have tanned skin in the intended treatment area, DO NOT use the LumaRx Mini Hair Removal System in those areas as your skin may be too dark for treatment. You should wait until your tan has completely faded from any intended treatment area before using the LumaRx Mini Hair Removal System.
The light energy targets dark coloring in hair, and therefore works best on DARKER HAIR (black, dark brown, brown or dark blond). DO NOT use the LumaRx Mini Hair Removal System on LIGHTER HAIR (light blond, red, grey or white hairs or “peach fuzz”). The LumaRx Mini Hair Removal System will not work on LIGHTER HAIR.
