•How does permanent hair reduction work?
The newest generation of Hair reduction is waiting for you at the Secret Beauty Lounge and the advanced technology produces a precise beam of light, which safely transmits through the skin, selectively targeting pigment in hair the follicles. When this light is absorbed by the pigment in the follicle of the hair, it coverts to heat, which in turn causes thermal damage to the follicle and permanently destroys the hair. The heat also disables the cells responsible for new hair growth.
•What are the benefits of this new hair reduction technology?
Patient Comfort / Patient Acceptance – Waxing, electrolysis, and even shaving can be cumbersome treatments, which lead to discomfort and skin irritation. Electrolysis and waxing in particular can be quite painful and patient acceptance for repeat procedures can be limited by this experience. The Harmony Treatments are significantly more comfortable with no skin irritation. The Harmony supports active cooling in the hand-pieces, which keeps the surface of the skin comfortable throughout the procedures.
PERMANENT Hair Reduction – Based on the absorption of specific wavelengths of light energy which are transformed into heat below the surface of the skin, The light and heat compromises the body’s ability to re-grow hair in the treated area. Permanent and long-lasting results!
Fast and Convenient Treatments – The large surface area covered by the specialized Harmony hand-pieces enables fast and effective treatments. With no post-treatment discomfort, it’s easy to receive treatments at lunch and then return to the office that afternoon. A full set of legs could be treated in less than 1 hour, and treatments are effective without the requirement to have hair grow out before the treatment, meaning you can shave right up until your next treatment.
•how many treatments will I require?
Hair grows in three cycles called Anagen, Catagen, and Telogen. The Harmony'a technology most effectively interacts with hair in the Anagen (or active growth) phase when the hair is highest in pigment. Hence multiple treatments are required to accomplish permanent hair reduction. On average approximately 20% reduction will be noticed in the initial treatment and as much as 95% reduction can be realized in four to six treatments. Remember after the treatments the reduction will be permanent.
•what happens immediately after a treatment?
The Harmony works in a minimally invasive manner to thermally destroy the hair. This is what makes the procedure so fast and comfortable. Two or three days after the treatment, stubble may reappear. This is NOT new hair growth, but simply the body shedding the thermally damaged hair; including the bulb.
When this hair is completely shed, it's time for your next treatment (typically four to six weeks). As the intense light penetrates through the skin right to the bulb of the hair, it's still OK to shave between treatments if you like, but DON’T tweeze or wax, as that will remove the target.
