Treating Wrinkles with the Harmony XL Laser System

As a child, you have smooth, soft skin, but when you get older, the aging process takes over and creates wrinkles. The problem with wrinkles is that they make you look older. Wrinkles can take away from your appearance and put a damper on your confidence.

The Harmony XL laser treatment system could be the answer to your problems. This technology is used for skin rejuvenation and has been approved by the FDA. The Harmony XL laser system is a versatile, comprehensive platform, and it can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions.

The Harmony XL system is special because it combines UVB, LED, near infrared, pulsed light and laser technologies. For better convenience, it’s equipped with several different hand pieces, which makes it easy to switch between treatments.

This treatment option can handle over 60 different conditions, but it’s particularly useful for treating wrinkles. Not too long ago, you might’ve needed several different laser treatments to get results. The Harmony XL is different because it uses a single platform to deliver several treatments.

How the Harmony XL Treatment Works

The platform that is used for the treatment has several different technologies built into it. The 1320 ND: YAG hand piece is commonly used to treat wrinkles. It can be effective for treating photo-aged skin, wrinkles and fine lines. It can even be used to treat mild acne scars.

When this hand piece is used to treat aesthetic imperfections, it produces a specific wavelength of light. The 1320NM wavelength is capable of penetrating deep into the skin, and it targets the tissue that contains water. By raising the dermal temperature, the treatment delivers targeted wrinkle reduction.

One of the benefits of this treatment is the pre-programmed repetition rates and pulse width. Since these settings are pre-programmed, you benefit from faster treatments and zero downtime.

The lightweight design of the hand piece significantly improves accuracy and delivers better treatment. The YAG hand piece has safety features built in, and it prevents repetition motion fatigue.

The Procedure and Benefits

During the treatment, a handheld device is used to deliver UVB applications and pulsed light. The target areas are showered with an intense laser light, which resurfaces the area. Once the laser has finished treating the area, you’re ready to go.

There is no downtime associated with the procedure so that you can get back to your daily life. The Harmony XL system delivers heat deep into your skin, so there is no need to numb the skin.

The procedure targets specific skin tissue and leaves the rest of the skin untouched. Many patients choose the Harmony XL treatment because it causes minimal discomfort and offers excellent results.
