What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Laser hair removal is a permanent and best hair removal treatment that uses lasers. Lasers target the roots of hair underneath the skin’s surface. No single laser is ideal for every individual. Depending on your skin and hair color, some lasers will be more effective than others.
Laser epilation is a popular option for cosmetic and reconstructive treatment. This leading therapy provides a high level of effectiveness and long-term results.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal has become a very popular treatment option in recent years. Laser hair treatment is considered a permanent, effective, and safe procedure if done by an educated and certified provider.
During this hair laser removal procedure, a light beam is passed through your skin and targets the dark pigment of the hair called melanin. The intense heat produced by the light beam destroys the hair follicle, which will grow and fall out within several days.
Our Manhattan practice is proud to offer the latest revolutionary technology of Harmony XL SHR Hair Removal System from Alma Laser. This is absolutely the best laser hair removal machine, remarkable procedure permanently reduces body hair in a virtually painless manner.
Harmony XL utilizes Super Hair Removal (SHR) sweeping In- Motion technology to deliver effective wavelength to treat unwanted hair of all skin tones and hair types. The special SHR mode has a high repetition pulse rate with a high average power, administered in motion technique. This allows treatments to be more effective and the advanced Continuous Wave (CW) technology allows extra energy to be delivered safely thus decreasing the chances of skin burning and discoloration.
Is Laser Hair Removal Painful??
During the laser hair reduction treatment, you would have a cooling gel applied to the skin area to be treated. The hair removal laser handpiece is cool to touch and soothes the skin as it carefully glides along the skin. The sweeping In-Motion SHR delivery system offers concurrent cooling and gradually raises the temperature to target the hair follicles without the risk of injury to the skin and virtually no pain to the patient. The In-Motion technology allows continued administration of light to a larger treatment area with minimal discomfort, faster speed and fewer missed spots.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
The number and frequency of treatments will be different depending on your hair type and the body part being treated. A number of treatments are usually required for the best permanent hair removal results. Laser hair removal works best when a hair follicle is targeted during a special phase of growth — the anagen phase — which might be different for each body part.
Most of the body hair above the waistline has approximately a 4–6 week cycle, while hair below the waist has a 6–8 weeks cycle. This means you should be scheduling your hair laser removal sessions for upper body parts every 4–6 weeks and lower body parts every 6–8 weeks. The schedule might be different for laser hair removal for dark skin.
Other factors such as various medical conditions, prescribed medication, hormonal changes, hirsutism, or even dark skin might also affect the number of hair removal laser treatments required. The timing might vary for each individual, but these are the average recommendations.
