LumaRx is a FDA-approved device for the permanent reduction of hair on the body, especially on the face of females. The device has a head with a total square area of 3 centimeters, making this device ideal for covering larger than usual areas in a relatively lesser amount of time than otherwise. Additionally, this product comes with an additional smaller head that allows for the treatment of smaller patches of skin that don’t provide access to a large head.
The cost of Luma Rx is $374.00 and the shipping is FREE!
One can, with total peace of mind, use this device without having to worry about whether or not the light emitted by the device is appropriate for one’s skin type. The reason for this, is because the device comes fitted with an in-built safety mechanism that first checks the tone of your skin and hair before allowing you to be able to use it. If your skin has a shade too dark or your hair has a shade too light, then, using IPL technology, the device simply locks out and will not operate on your skin.
There is no need for batteries in order to use this device. All you need is an accessible plug-point to plug the device into using the cord that comes fitted into its build. This reduces the hassle of constantly having to get to the shops to buy batteries in order to run the device.
The treatment window that comes along with LumaRx could be considered as the largest of its kind currently available in the market in terms of devices used at home. Due to its 3cm2 size window, the device can even be used to treat the chest or back areas of men within a shorter timeframe than otherwise. It usually takes an average time of around 15-20 minutes to provide hair-removal treatment to an entire leg.
LumaRx comes with 2 sizes of treatment caps that can be interchanged, depending on the type of treatment required. The smaller cap can be used to treat areas such as above the lip, over the cheeks and sideburns, along the chin and neck areas. Its larger cap can be used for more general use such as the back or chest.
This device has been approved by the United States’ Federation for Drug Administration as a device for permanent hair reduction. According to the FDA, this device is effective in permanently reducing the re-appearance and re-growth of hair within areas subjected to its treatment.
This device comes along with a cartridge that allows one to use up to 65,000 flashes of light radiation. That is generally an amount that could last months on end, depending of course on how one uses the device. In any case, the cartridge can be replaced with a new one once it has been completely exhausted of flashes.
LumaRx comes fitted with a regulator that has a range of 5 different light radiation levels or intensities. The level at which the regulator is functioning at any given moment is indicated by the number of LED lights glowing on the base of the device. Generally, one starts at a lower level and works one’s way up from there, to first get familiar with what one is comfortable with. Its default level is level 1. The higher one goes the more efficient the device gets, but the more chance of one getting uncomfortable, depending of course, on one’s tolerance levels.
The facial hair of a man and the texture of his skin is not compatible with this device. A man’s facial hair can prove to be too tough for the device to work efficiently enough.
The color of a person’s hair plays a vital role in the functioning of this device. It is geared to target hair that has a minimum level of darkness and can stand out against the surface of the skin, thus allowing only the hair to absorb the necessary light radiation. Therefore, a person with red, grey, light blonde, or grey hair should avoid using this product, as this product is designed to target hair that absorbs a certain frequency range of light radiation.
While treating the face, please ensure not to expose the actual lips or the eyes to the light radiation emitted by this device. The lip’s darker color might lead to it getting damaged by the emitted light radiation being unnecessarily absorbed. One’s eye, on the other hand, contains very sensitive components such as the retina and pupil which can easily get potentially damaged by such artificially produced light radiation.
Simple and effective, this method has been commonly used for decades without any problems. Of course, the need to constantly shave does not reduce the more you shave. If anything, it seems to only increase.
This is a method of removing hair on a partially permanent basis, and can at times be quite expensive with precautions to bear in mind throughout the procedure. Please first consult your dermatologist.
Although this method of removing hair is relatively temporary, it is nevertheless, very effective and certainly commonly used throughout the world.
LumaRx is aimed at targeting the roots of hair follicles with light energy that has a deadening effect on the hair follicles, interfering with their growth pattern and preventing further hair growth. This also results in them automatically fall out of the skin within around a week and a half due to the body’s natural process of rejecting anything that is dead and useless.
Unlike other conventional devices used as hair-removal tools, the treatment window of this device is fitted with ComfortFilterTM technology that prevents harmful UV and infrared radiation from penetrating the skin. The window also helps in spreading the light radiation uniformly throughout the surface of the skin in order to prevent one unnecessarily developing hot-spots or rashes.
Thus, the device works is by color-coding of the frequency of light emitted such that it only targets hair because of its color being much darker than the surrounding skin. This frequency of light emitted onto the skin is only absorbed by the hair follicles since the light absorbed by the surrounding skin ( much lighter shade ) is of a very different frequency. Meaning, this device can only be used on skin that is much lighter than one’s own hair.

I started using this device several years ago and now only do occasional touch ups. It really did works on me. I started with electrolysis and did that for 20 years. It got to be so painful that I went to a laser salon and paid lots of money, but had no results. So I tried this machine and I am just amazed! My hair is still gone after several years. I am so glad I got this machine!
