The Harmony® XL Pro laser system is the power behind Super Hair Removal (SHR). It concentrates light beams directly into the hair follicles, damaging and removing them at the root. With each pulse of narrow wavelength energy, the melanin in the follicles absorbs the heat, building up to damage the root structure beyond repair. SHR slowly raises the temperature surrounding the follicles, resulting in significant damage to the follicle’s protective outer layers. Once the follicle is beyond repair, the body sheds it, and a hair in the dormant phase takes its place. During each subsequent treatment session, follicles that have moved from the dormant to the active phase are damaged, and the process continues until all of the unwanted hairs in your treatment area fall out.
The laser does not cause trauma to the follicle’s surrounding tissues because the laser pulses are short and repetitive. The Harmony® XL Pro contains a cooling system that blows cold air across the treatment area for maximum comfort. The heat still builds in the follicle, but you feel almost no pain at all, and there’s virtually no risk of burns. Your skin, at most, feels warm and tingly, so you won’t even need numbing cream or local anesthetic. Your laser specialist keeps the handpiece in constant motion, so the heat is not concentrated in one spot, and even large areas are quick to treat.
