The Best Blogs Blog

If there’s one thing we modern humans love doing it’s:

  1. Compiling lists
  2. Arguing about the 10 best ever whatevers 
  3. Reading the 3 top ways to lose/gain weight
  4. Checking out 7 places to visit before we die
  5. Making a list of the greatest power ballads
  6. Deciding the top 6 Elysion Pro Blogs of the last year

Hang about, what was that last one?
Let’s explain: In our Elysion Pro team we have Gennifer (“Gennifer with a G”). Gennifer is great at statistics and loves to tell everyone about percentages. Like the percentage of red cars which pass the office on any given day - that sort of thing. So when Gennifer began compiling a list of our most-read Blogs over the last year, it seemed like just another example of her counting things. “Guess which is our number one Blog!” Gennifer said excitedly when her list was finished. People started guessing… and we were all wrong. 

And that started us thinking.

Never put off till tomorrow...

Time to write the latest Elysion Pro Blog. But perhaps first a cup of coffee, and maybe check Social Media, or the news. Oh, look! Jeff Bezos has had himself blasted into space…

It’s so easy to get distracted isn’t it? We know what we need to do, but there are always other things to claim our time and energy. As Thomas Jefferson said, "Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today." But maybe he didn’t get distracted by Facebook.

The fact is that there comes a time when we simply have to commit if we want anything to progress. As the countdown to launch Mr Bezos into space reached ‘zero’, someone pressed the proverbial red button, and there was no turning back. The rocket was on its way, and it was too late to say, ‘Hang on, I’ve had second thoughts.’ 

None of us will be getting fired off beyond the stratosphere any time soon, but we each have moments in our lives where we made decisions which had massive consequences:...

Stay cool!

Here’s a great vacation idea - let’s go for a road trip through Death Valley in southeastern California! You may be aware that on Sunday July 11, the Stovepipe Wells weather station there recorded an average temperature of 118.1°F, the highest average daily temperature observed on Earth, with the mercury peaking out at 128.6 degrees. Sounds like a nice little joyride? Oh, and here’s an extra detail - the car has no air-con.

At which point any sensible person would surely decline the opportunity to go and slow roast themselves. And yet… that’s pretty much what Spa and Salon owners have been expecting their laser hair removal clients to do for years. Let’s check in with the science:

All laser hair removal treatments are designed to act on hair follicles by heating them through the application of an intense laser beam. The hair itself acts as a conductor, and the energy is passed to the bulb of the hair - the follicle - where it is transformed...

Going to Las Vegas, again

In April 2021 we took a further step towards our goal of becoming number one in the U.S. laser hair removal market, within the next 5 years: We went to Las Vegas. But the LAX Distribution team weren’t there to party or gamble, rather to show our game-changing laser hair removal system, Elysion Pro, at the Amspa trade exhibition. Things went well and from our small stand we created a big buzz. It’s one thing to tell people how good a product is, but ultimately they need to experience it. For example, Elysion Pro is uniquely lightweight and transportable, but until you actually see that, and compare it with other unwieldy traditional models, it can be hard to appreciate.

At Amspa we made a lot of new friends and contacts for Elysion Pro, and now we’re rolling that out further by taking booth number 734 at The Aesthetic Show, ‘where Science meets Beauty’. The show takes place July 8-11, at Wynn, Las Vegas and includes live demos of  Elysion Pro. That...

What does Independence Day mean to you?

What does Independence Day mean to you? - Celebrations, a party perhaps, fireworks and music? 

If you’re a history-minded person you may be thinking back to 1776 and the Declaration of Independence from the rule of King George III of England. You might also pause to wonder how in so relatively few years the USA has grown from that young upstart country to a mighty world leader in culture, technology, power and reach. These are all certainly things to celebrate on 4th July.

If you’re of a certain age you might also fondly remember the knockout punch delivered to an alien invader by Will Smith’s character in the movie Independence Day, along with the line, “Welcome to Earth!” Those three words had cinema audiences whooping, and somehow sum up the grit and can-do attitude which has helped make America so great.

Expansion and success

The American story is one of constant expansion, often against difficult odds, and usually with considerable success. So...

The heat is on

When back in the day Glenn Frey recorded The Heat Is On, who could have predicted that nearly forty years later it would still be a staple of summertime airplay on radio stations across the country? Now as temperatures max out, you’ll hear the song coming from cars, in malls... in fact everywhere. The heat really is on. 

We had a long, chill winter, with a hard year and a half of the pandemic to deal with. Most people didn’t get out very much, or mix a whole lot in public. Now, with things somewhat more relaxed, there’s a feeling in the air that it’s time to see and be seen again. Many of us have lived the last eighteen months in casual clothes, with often casual hairstyles too! Now we’re thinking of freshening up our looks, which may involve a few trips to the local salon or spa. Let’s get our appearance tweaked a bit, ready for the beach, the cookout, the tennis court, or anywhere else where we might show rather more skin than in recent...

Telling stories

Many of us had the fortunate experience of being told stories from a very young age. People love stories - they can be entertaining, educational, and give us valuable life lessons. In adulthood the joy of listening to stories does not diminish, and with the popularity of social media postings, the appetite is there for anything new and fresh.

What does an ideal story contain? - A beginning, middle, and an end, as simple as that. We want to know the ‘set-up’ at the beginning, and that has to reach some kind of conclusion which satisfies our curiosity at the end. In between we get some of the detail and ‘flavor’.

So what has that to do with laser hair removal, and the Elysion Pro system? Let’s tell you a short story:

A tale of two salons

Once upon a time there were two salons in the same town, which both acquired a state of the art Elysion Pro device. The owner of Salon B was very pleased to have this new machine, and figured customers would be flocking...

A question of identity

Why do people decide to use the various methods available to remove the hair which grows naturally on their bodies? As the distributor of the premier laser hair removal system, Elysion Pro, it’s a question that greatly interests us. After all, at LAX Distribution, this is what we do - it’s at the heart of our business.

Let’s widen the question first though and ask: Why do any of us do things to make ourselves feel more attractive, both to ourselves and others? Think of tattoos, piercings, hair implants when there’s too little hair… Or hair removal when we feel there’s too much (or rather too much in the wrong place). Critics of any such practices will say that these are unnecessary actions, or ‘vain’, but of course to the person modifying their appearance, it can be life affirming, and highly desirable.

Even the most conservatively body-aware people still feel it important to present themselves in ways that are acceptable in their own...

The best-kept secret

Many small business owners spend a lot of their time ‘Just keeping the wheels on’, and the smaller the business, the more jobs the owner will find themselves doing. In Spas and Salons across the country, often the hardest working person is the owner, who may also be a beautician or esthetic practitioner in their own right. That’s when they’re not doing accounts, tidying, marketing, and maybe even having a life outside of the business!
If that describes your experience, then in this Blog we’re going to reveal a best kept secret about Small-to-Medium Enterprises, or SMEs. It’s a secret that can result in the owner having to do less of keeping the wheels on, and more of devoting time to the really productive stuff.

One of the biggest challenges facing owners is getting the word out about their services, and why theirs are better than everyone else’s. That’s called marketing, but it’s not something which comes naturally to many SME...

The courage of convictions

Bethany Hamilton is a professional surfer who survived a shark attack in 2003, and went on to resume her surfing career. “Courage doesn’t mean you don’t get afraid. Courage means you don’t let fear stop you,” she says. That’s a pretty good definition of courage, which can be found in many walks of life. With courage, a single parent bringing up a family can face many difficulties, or someone suffering from serious illness may also summon up great courage. 

Most often, perhaps we think of courage as being possessed by soldiers in combat, and that’s true too of course. In April 2021 something significant happened in the U.S. Marine Corps: 53 female recruits graduated as Marines. The San Diego depot bootcamp had started with a full complement of 60 recruits, but the tough and dangerous training meant that 7 women dropped out through injury. All of the recruits were being prepared for frontline service, and imagine how tough both physically...
