Imagine not shaving every day, getting rid of razors, and saying goodbye to painful waxing appointments for good – Now you can with Laser Hair Removal!
Getting rid of unwanted hair is a never-ending issue that many people have struggled to find a long-term solution for. Our team at Aesthetic Medicine is so excited to now offer Harmony’s SHR hair removal method that uses groundbreaking technology to provide a simple, one-stop solution for truly effective hair reduction & removal.
We utilize SHR technology with the Harmony laser hair removal device. SHR stands for Super Hair Removal, which uses a unique, gradual heating method that effectively damages the hair follicles, preventing them from growing back while protecting the surrounding skin. The device uses a sweeping in motion delivery technique that keeps the laser in constant motion to ensure complete coverage to the area. The simultaneous contact allows cooling, prevents burning, and provides a more comfortable treatment than traditional laser hair removal. The specialized applicator allows your provider to treat large areas in less time. Instead of the hair follicles receiving a single pulse of high energy, which can feel painful to the skin, they receive multiple, short, low energy pulses until they obtain enough heat energy to damage the hair follicle.
You can do this treatment if you have light, dark or tanned skin, coarse or fine hair; however, the SHR Hair Removal performs better on darker, thicker hair. Laser’s are photosensitive and are attracted to pigment. The ideal candidate would have dark, coarse hair with lighter skin-though the Harmony LASER is unique in that it treats most skin types. Harmony achieves complete hair removal for all areas of the body that is safe, fast, and, best of all, more painless than traditional laser hair removal devices.
On average, we would recommend 6-10 sessions to see results, but this is dependent on the patient’s genetics, desired results, ethnicity [skin type], hair type [thin vs. coarse] and the area on the body being treated. Treatment time can range from a few seconds for a small area such as the upper lip ranging to 30 minutes for larger body areas.
Hair growth is affected by many factors, including genetics, ethnicity, hormones, etc. The treatment protocol you receive in your 20’s will vary and differ from your treatment recommendations later in life. Patients should note that we may recommend more treatments to obtain desired results, as each area of the body has different growth cycles and treatment protocols. Maintenance will be recommended as needed.
Everyone’s pain tolerance is different; however, the Harmony XL Pro offers SHR in-motion technology, making the procedure virtually painless and very effective. Laser hair removal technology has come a long way and the Harmony SHR technology is practically painless.
