What is Pigmentation Removal and How does it work?
However, unlike traditional lasers the Harmony XL Pro’s ablative power works deep into the skin. The outer skin does not get burned and this means down time and skin redness is practically non-existent.
The laser shatters the melanin by exposing the pigmented area with short pulses of visible light. Once the melanin is broken down the pigmentation is absorbed by the body, leaving the dark patches no longer visible. Pigmentation removal takes approximately 30 minutes. Everyone is individual but we would expect around 3 -6 treatments over a 5 month period. The treatment is quick and effective.
