Most people are now aware that lasers are the ‘gold standard’ method of hair removal but the most common patient complaint has been the pain of the procedure. Not anymore! This really is pain-free.
The HarmonyXL SHR handpiece emits broad-spectrum light. 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.
The result is superb hair removal without pain.
