How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Super Hair Removal (SHR) is an innovative laser treatment available with the Harmony XL Pro System, which utilizes concentrated light beams to destroy the hair follicles, truly removing them from the root. SHR begins by slowly raising the temperature of the skin to a point where the follicles of hair start to suffer damage to them. This level of heat also prevents the hairs from growing again in the future. One of the most attractive features of this method of hair removal is the fact that the laser does not harm any of the tissue surrounding the site of the procedure. The skin receives pulses that are short and repetitive. This helps to achieve a high level of power and heat while causing the patient almost no pain at all.
Each pulse of light is an incredibly narrow, specific wavelength of energy that is absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle. The process gradually heats the melanin and hair follicles with effective heat buildup to destroy the hair for long-lasting results. The laser treatment is also paired with an effective air cooling tool on the surface so that your skin, at most, feels a little warm and tingly. Unlike other laser treatments and short-term waxing, you won’t experience any superficial burns or pain, and there’s no need for numbing or anesthesia. The hand-piece applicator is kept in constant motion for full coverage, so it’s easy to quickly treat large areas of the body quickly.
Am I a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
The SHRhair removal treatment is safe for sensitive skin areas and can be used on the face, so you can eliminate unwanted hair on your upper lip, nostrils, and between eyebrows forever, along with your legs, arms, bikini area, or back. Never have to shave or wax again!
Anyone with unwanted facial or body hair is a potential candidate for laser hair removal. Unlike many other laser hair removal treatments, this one is safe for all skin types – even tanned skin and can be used to remove hair in the smallest to the largest areas, including:
- Face, including lip, chin, eyebrows
- Bikini area
What Results Will I See?
Most patients require a series of six to eight sessions for total hair removal. Results vary from patient to patient after the first treatment and can be affected by the color and thickness of your hair, the area treated, and the color of your skin. You can expect a 10% to 25% reduction in hair after the first treatment. Generally, blonde and white hair does not respond well to treatment. Schedule a complimentary hair removal consultation with our aesthetic nurse to see if laser hair removal is right for you and to learn about the expected number of treatments you may require.
