If you have excess hair on your face or body, you may want to consider having laser hair removal treatments. Here at Associates in Women’s Health in Cincinnati, we use the Harmony XL laser hair removal system for patients who want a simple solution for effective, permanent hair removal.
Read on to learn three amazing benefits of laser hair removal with Harmony XL.
You don’t want to trust your skin to a hair removal procedure that damages it or puts it at risk. Harmony XL is an exceptionally safe way to remove unwanted hair. It uses rapid pulsing of broad-spectrum laser energy at a low setting, with little risk of side effects, to rid you of unwanted hair.
The Harmony XL system’s unique gradual heating method works by damaging your hair follicles, while avoiding injury to surrounding skin. The specially designed laser delivery technique keeps energy in constant motion, while using simultaneous cooling to prevent burns and keep your skin comfortable.
Using the Harmony XL system, your trained, experienced aesthetics specialist here at Associates in Women’s Health uses a device that transmits laser light energy through the outer and inner layers of your skin until it strikes hair follicles. Then, the Harmony XL laser vaporizes the pigment in hair follicles, disabling them and stopping their growth.
Harmony XL is safe for all areas of your body, including your face, chest, back, belly, bikini line, legs, and feet.
Although many of our patients seek laser treatment with Harmony XL simply because they are tired of routine hair removal chores, some want relief from extreme hair growth due to polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). The elevated levels of the male hormone androgen associated with PCOS can lead to excessive facial and body hair in women.
Laser hair removal with the Harmony XL system is quick and convenient. A special laser applicator allows us to treat large areas at one time. Although laser hair removal can require multiple treatments, it is virtually painless, so you experience no downtime after a treatment. Our patients tell us that hair removal with the Harmony XL system is comfortable and causes little or no skin irritation.
Typically, our patients require an average of 6-10 sessions for hair removal. Treatment time can range from a few seconds for a small area such as above your upper lip, to eight minutes for your entire back.
Long-term hair removal has always posed a particularly stubborn problem. Shaving, creams, and waxing provide only short-term results. And treatments such as electrolysis can be painful and time-consuming.
Harmony XL provides truly effective, permanent hair removal that lasts and lasts. And it’s more efficient than other hair removal techniques such as electrolysis.
Harmony XL works on all shades of skin (light, dark, or tanned skin) and all kinds of hair (fine, medium, or coarse), although the level of response varies from person to person. Generally, blonde and white hair don’t typically respond well to laser hair removal treatment.
