Laser Hair Removal Treatments
Who's it for?
Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ is for everyone. It’s safe for all skin types, hair types and most hair colours. It can even be used on tanned skin. The bottom line is - if you have hair where you wish you didn't, Pain-Free, Hair-Free is for you.
The body hair reduction process is permanent, predictable, and virtually pain-free. You'll go through a series of office visits to see the full benefits.
Where's it for?
Patients seek hair removal treatments for almost any body part, from facial or bikini line treatments to leg, arm, neck or back hair removal. Hear what patients say about Pain-Free, Hair-Free, and then see their results.
What you can expect?
You can expect results from a series of relatively short sessions. (The actual time depends mainly on the size of the area you are having treated.) A trained doctor, nurse or laser technician performs each treatment and you are free to return to normal activities immediately after each session.
Because of Pain-Free, Hair-Free's unique technology, treatment sessions can be virtually pain-free. Other benefits include:
- Complete coverage with no missed spots
- Fast treatment times
- Few side effects
- Return to normal activities immediately (no recovery or "down time")
- Safe for all skin types, including tanned skin (no sun exposure 6 weeks before and 6 weeks after treatments)
Pain-Free, Hair-Free uses the most successful photoepilation wavelength (810 nm), which makes it the gold standard for laser hair removal. In addition, a patented DualChill™ mechanism ensures the surface of your skin stays cool and even more comfortable throughout your treatment.
Effective treatment for dark tattoo inks
With the overwhelming popularity of tattoos over the last ten years, the market for effective removal has exploded. Tattoos are created by injecting coloured pigment into small deep holes made in the skin. Regardless of whether a tattoo artist or an untrained individual injects the pigment, the marks or designs are relatively permanent. When people subsequently want their tattoos removed, most physicians today consider laser surgery one of the best methods.
The Q-switched Nd:YAG is the most frequently used laser for tattoo removal. During treatment, pulses of light from the laser are directed onto the tattoo, breaking up the tattoo pigment. Over the next several weeks the body's macrophages remove the treated pigmented areas. With the Q-switched Nd:YAG laser available on the Harmony®XL laser system, you can effectively treat dark tattoo inks, specifically black (which accounts for more than half of all tattoos), blue and green. Patients should expect to come back for several treatments to achieve expected results.
Technology in use
Tattoo ink and natural pigmentation like melanin absorb short pulse duration/high peak energy Q-switched pulses so quickly that they create a photo-acoustic effect within the pigment clusters. This effect breaks down the ink into much smaller particles that can be more easily removed by the body's natural filtering system.
