How does Laser Hair Removal work?
It is a medical procedure that uses laser light, which passes through the skin and gets absorbed by the melanin in the hair. This light is specifically designed not to damage the surrounding skin but to selectively target the hair. It causes photo-thermolysis which will eliminate the hair and its potential re-growth to achieve the desired effect.
With Harmony XL SHR, the diode laser is emitting a broad spectrum light that travels harmlessly through the epidermis and dermis, targeting only the follicle area of the hair. This ensures a treatment that is safe, convenient and pain-free. It eliminates dangerous energy spikes that used to cause burning and other undesirable effects. By absorbing the laser energy, hair follicles are disabled, and future hair growth is prevented.
Who is the ideal candidate for hair removal?
Both men and women, teenagers and elders are suitable. Traditionally, permanent hair reduction has been very difficult to achieve on darker skin types for many years (African, Asian as well as tanned skin). Now, with Harmony XL SHR, we can offer this treatment for all skin types and all hair colors.
The laser uses advanced continuous wave technology that eliminates undesirable side effects. Unique in-motion technology uses a sweeping motion of the brush to gradually heat the tissue while the rapid pulsing laser targets the hairs. As a consequence, the procedure is shorter in duration and comfortable.
