Is Laser Hair Removal painful?
By targeting the area under the skin’s surface, your skin is left completely intact and untouched with virtually no visible symptoms. The laser treatment is also paired with an effective air-cooling tool on the surface so that, at most, your skin feels a little warm and tingly. Unlike other laser treatments or waxing, you won’t experience any superficial burns, pain, or ingrown hairs, and there’s no need for numbing or a topical anesthetic.
How does Laser Hair Removal work?
The Harmony XL Pro emits precise pulses of light (incredibly narrow, specific wavelengths of energy) that are absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle. The process gradually heats the melanin and hair follicles to destroy the hair for long-lasting results.
On which areas of the body can you get Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal by Harmony Pro XL is safe and effective for both men and women and is commonly used on arms, back, legs, face, chest, armpits, and bikini area. It’s ideal for sensitive skin areas like the face, so you can eliminate unwanted hair on your upper lip, nostrils, and between your eyebrows—forever!
How many sessions will I need?
Usually, you will need 4-8 laser hair treatments (spaced 3-4 weeks apart) to achieve your optimal results. Certain factors like genetics can affect how many treatments you’ll need.
What can I expect on my treatment day?
At your laser hair removal appointment, one of team will clean your skin and smooth out the skin to provide a direct path between the hair follicle root and our state-of-the-art Alma Harmony XL PRO laser. The laser's energy will target and safely destroy the follicle, stopping it from growing back. While this procedure is relatively gentle in nature, the treated areas of your skin may feel like it has a mild sunburn where lasers are used. After your treatment, you are free to go back to your daily activities, but you need to avoid strenuous activity or lengthy exposure to the sun for at least 24 hours to let your skin recover. When you get home after your treatment, we recommend anti-inflammatory creams or cold packs to treat any discomfort.
