Get Glowing Skin With Harmony® Laser

Think of your skin as a car, which rolls off the assembly line all shiny and new. After a few years, your car begins to succumb to wear and tear and exposure, robbing it of that polished look it once had.

Well, your skin isn’t much different. That skin you had when you were younger also succumbs to external and internal forces that can strip it of the healthy glow of youth, leaving dull, sagging skin in its wake.

While there’s not much we can do about the march of time, thanks to new laser technology, there’s a lot we can do to restore some of the lusters in your skin. Here at Primary Medical Associates of Long Island, PLLC, we’re equipped with the Harmony XL Pro® laser system to help our patients in Plainview, New York recapture youthful, glowing skin from the inside out.

If you’d like to explore how the Harmony system can help your skin, here’s what you need to know.

The skin you’re in

Before we get into how the Harmony laser system works, it’s helpful to step back and take a look at what happens to your skin as you age and why it appears duller. First and foremost, as you age, your collagen production slows. Your collagen is responsible for the firmness and tone of your skin and as age starts to break down your skin, your collagen can’t keep up, allowing gravity to take over.

The second problem is that your skin is doing what it’s designed to do — protect you. In its frontline role, it takes a lot of abuse from the elements and the wear and tear begin to show as you age.

Lastly, if you spend your summers on the shore soaking in the sun after a long winter, you’ve likely sped up the aging process as the sun is Enemy Number One when it comes to your skin. The sun breaks down your skin cells faster than any other force and it also causes problems with hyperpigmentation or sunspots.

When they come together, all of these forces lead to dull skin that’s lined with wrinkles and dotted with blemishes.

The laser difference

With the Harmony laser, we can provide the necessary wake-up call for your body to jump into action. When we send the laser energy below the surface of your skin, it heats up and destroys old skin cells and it breaks up pigmentation. Afterward, your body takes over and flushes out your old skin cells and pigmentation fragments, making way for new, glowing skin to take shape.

The laser energy creates a mild healing response in your skin, which ramps up the production of collagen. By tapping your body’s own natural resources, we can promote firmer, more vibrant skin from the ground up.

The Harmony system has several advantages, with the main one being that we can precisely control how deep we go in the layers of your skin. If you have only minor surface issues, we adjust the laser to tackle the layers of skin toward the surface. If you’d like to go deeper to address well-worn lines and wrinkles, we can accurately target the sublayers of your skin to promote more collagen production and skin renewal from below.

Another advantage of the Harmony laser technology is that it travels beneath your skin without damaging the surface area.

Much like taking your aging car in for a comprehensive detailing and polish, we can breathe new life and vitality into your skin with our laser technology, restoring some of that shiny, brand-new look you had when you were younger.
