Imagine Yourself Free of Embarrassing Facial and Body Hair… Laser hair removal offers an effective alternative compared to the temporary methods of shaving, waxing, and creams, and is much faster and more efficient than other hair removal techniques such as electrolysis. Safe and effective for use on virtually any part of the body, the laser works by vaporizing the pigment that is located in hair follicles, disabling the follicle and stopping its growth.

Associates in Women’s Health offers the Harmony XL, a newer advanced form of laser hair removal. This new technology uses rapid pulsing of the laser at a lower energy setting. The old rubber band flick is a thing of the past. We are so excited about our new hair removal laser. Our customers are always commenting on how pain-free it is and still very effective. Laser hair removal can require multiple treatments and the degree of response varies from person to person. Blonde and white hair typically do not respond to laser hair removal treatments.
To perform light-based hair removal with the HarmonyXL SHR handpiece, a large rectangular window emitting broad-spectrum light is applied to the surface of the skin. The energy travels harmlessly through the epidermis and dermis until it strikes the hair follicle, which contains a dense, melanin-rich hair shaft and bulb.
The dark-colored melanin absorbs the light and rises slowly in temperature, destroying the hair-producing cells surrounding the follicle. Because the heat is not sustained, however, no damage occurs outside the follicle area.
