How does HarmonyLITE work?
Voka Deka through the Harmony system is now offering fast, effective results for permanent hair reduction on all skin types. This SHR hand-piece now has contact cooling and uses IN-Motion™ technology for virtually painless procedures with no downtime - Alma Lasers' remarkable Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ procedure.

To perform the Pain-Free, Hair- light-based hair removal, a large rectangular window emitting broad-spectrum light is applied to the surface of the skin. 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 quickly in temperature, destroying the hair-producing cells surrounding the follicle. Because the heat is not sustained, however, no damage occurs outside your follicle area.

IN-Motion Technology represents a breakthrough in patient comfort, speed of procedures and repeatable clinical results. Why? Because the unique In-Motion technology combines concurrent cooling with a gradual thermal rise to the target’s critical temperature, without the risk of injury and with much less pain for the patient.

Who is Laser Hair Removal 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 treatment process is permanent, predictable, and virtually pain-free.

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

• The surface of your skin stays cool and comfortable.

• Few side effects

• Return to normal activities immediately (no recovery or “down time”)

• Safe for all skin types, including tanned skin

Most people find Pain-Free, Hair-Free very comfortable. While pain tolerance is subjective, many patients often describe the sensation as soothing as a “hot stone massage.”
What are the results of HarmonyLITE laser hair removal?
Up to 80% (or better) reduction in unwanted hair. Hair is natural to your body and it grows in three different stages. At any given time, not all the hair is in are growth phase and lasers are only effective in targeting the growing hairs (Anagen stage). Therefore, approximately 25% of hair is removed with each treatment and after six to eight treatments your area should be free from hair. This depends on your individual situation however and the results are found in the way your hair grows. In fact In practice, no laser destroys all of the hair follicles. Some follicles are destroyed, while others are miniaturized into fine hairs, multiple treatments are needed for best results, and the best interval for retreatment depends on the hair cycle growth patterns in that area of the body.

The colour of the hair is also important in hair removal, as blonde hair is difficult to treat since it does not have any pigment in the hair. Very fine baby or vellus hair can also be difficult to treat, however the option of a “ Soft light” laser treatment gives people the option to have a laser hair treatment that results in temporary removal of the hair for up to 10-12 weeks at a time. This is still a great option for many people as it is still better to have this laser hair treatment than other methods of hair removal.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Most areas require six-to-ten treatments. Ideally, they should be four to six weeks apart. However, depending upon your skin tone, and hair colour and density, this may vary. Your laser technician will be able to provide you with a more precise estimate during your consultation.
Pre-Treatment Care
Please— Shave 12-24 hours before (all treatments). Do not tan for four to six weeks prior (technician will advise). Remove all makeup, lotion, and deodorant. Do not wax, thread, or tweeze for four to six weeks prior.
Post-Treatment Care
Apply a minimum SPF-45 sunscreen (UVA/UVB) to protect against sun exposure at least for two weeks. Do not use tanning beds or expose unprotected skin to sun between treatments. Apply makeup and deodorant with caution. Spot-test all products for 12-24 hours before full application. Be advised that treated hair can take one to two weeks to be excreted from the body, and to fall out. Do not shave often between treatments. Do not wax, thread, tweeze, or use depilatory products—this will remove the hair follicles, making it impossible to remove the hair with laser. Do not exercise; take hot showers, or use hot tubs or saunas for 12-48 hours.

WARNING: If you insist on using an anesthetic cream, you may not be able to feel any heat sensation from the laser. This can create adverse effects as it is the duty of the patient to advise the technician on any uncomfortable feelings/sensations. Without that knowledge, a technician may not be able to gauge properly how many extra breaks in between pulses are required for the patient. As per our pre-treatment protocols, we do not recommend any use of anesthetic creams. Use at your own risk.
