Harmony® Laser Skin Treatment

Overview of treatments offered with the HARMONY LASER

The Harmony® laser treatment is very versatile and can be used to treat or improve many conditions. It is a different system to the Smartxide® Advanced Laser Skin Resurfacing treatment and has different indications for its application.

Please note Harmony® laser treatments are about improvements not eradication of a problem and you may require several sessions depending on the problem and the extent/severity.

No laser treatment should be undertaken lightly and although we work to protocols as advised to us by the manufacturers, obviously there are individual responses and certain people have increased individual risks. Please read the pre & post-care consent forms as well as our terms and conditions.

Below is a comprehensive list of what we offer and the indications which can be treated with Harmony® laser treatment:

Harmony® laser treatments require a patch test before commencing a full treatment.

This is to anticipate how your skin specifically will react to the treatment and help us establish what power settings can be used on your skin.

Reduce or remove red veins on the face

Red veins on the face, nose and cheeks can be isolated, thread vein looking and can either be treated by thermocautery or by long pulsed Nd Yag Laser. The vessel is tracked along its length.

This treatment is suitable for spider naevi, telangiectasia and veins from over-exposure to the elements.
The face and décolleté can be successfully treated. Sometimes several treatments are required at approximately 2-6 weeks apart.
Early intervention is wise as these  do not disappear and just worsen with time.

Remove or reduce skin pigmentation and brown spots

Pigmentation from sun damage can be improved or removed with IPL .
If your skin is darker or prone to tanning easily, I would advise a period of treatment with a special product to reduce reactive hyper-pigmentation after ***.

Pigmentation secondary to hormone induction called melasma (or chloasma) occurs in pregnancy. Reduction can be possible but takes many months with medical skin preparation and peeling. Full removal is not usually possible.

Remove or reduce red vein or thread veins on the legs

Similar to the above, red veins on legs can be successfully treated with long pulsed Nd Yag tracking of the veins until they blanch.
These areas can respond well. However, recurrence does occur due to the increased pressure of the vein system in the legs.
Repeated treatments on an annual basis may be indicated or new sites as they occur.
Bruising can occur and fading takes place over weeks or months. Sometimes patches of pigment remain.
(Please note blue veins do not respond well to laser and may need sclerotherapy or even surgery first ).

Reduce red blush and ” high colour” and conditions such as rosacea

When examined, the cheeks, forehead or chin can have a very high colour over quite a large area.
We use an IPL (intense pulse light) type system covering quite a large area with each laser shot. For medical treatments such as rosacea, a cautious approach has to be adopted as the skin is very reactive. Please note several treatments i.e. 3-6 may be required. Once again, there may be an annual maintenance requirement as vessels recur.
A detailed medical history is required before treatment and wearing of an SPF factor 20 and above is essential for all facial treatments for several weeks. ***

White light facial rejuvenation treatment

A nice treatment to pep the skin up for a special occasion brightens the skin and seals some smaller vessels.
Several sessions are usually required and this is a favourite before a special event.

Reduce acne vulgaris ***

If you are bothered by pustular spots still a course of blue light treatment could help with reducing bacteria in the pustules and aid healing.
If you are on retinoids you may not be suitable.

Reduce or remove unwanted hair on the face and body

This system is not suitable for fair hair on fair skin or dark or Afro-Caribbean skin. Please note 6 sessions (sometimes 8) may be required and full eradication is not always possible. Treatment sessions are often long for areas such as back, chest and can be uncomfortable. Darker hair on paler skin reacts the best. The darker the skin the more hazardous the procedure. A patch test is very imprint to see how your skin reacts. The firth few sessions will give the biggest change generally.

Reduce or Remove  Tattoos

Pricing is done according to the size of the tattoo which is measured using a grid system.

A patch test is required. Please note several treatments will be required.
The skin may never return to normal. There will always be evidence of scarring in the treatment area.
The scarring may look grazed and deep pink for many months until it fades.
Darker pigment such as black and dark blue respond reasonably well whereas lighter pigments such as mauve, yellow and pink less so.
Green pigmentation is almost impossible to eradicate with any laser.

The area can throb after treatment and requires a dressing for 48 hours.
