HARMONY XL PRO™ LASER DYE VL / DYE SR Vascular, Pigmentation & Skin Rejuvenating Treatment Protocol
Harmony XL PRO™ DYE VL and DYE SR are both advanced forms of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) energy. Using DYE VL vascular lesions and redness such as Rosacea can be significantly reduced by heating up and destroying the haemoglobin in the tissue, resulting in a reduction of veins and redness making this an ideal treatment for people who suffer from a red flush or veins on the face or cheeks. DYE SR will target melanin which reduces pigment making it a very effective treatment at clearing the skin and offering excellent rejuvenation.
Both DYE VL and DYE SR handpieces use advanced fluorescent technology (AFT) which utilises the energy that would otherwise go unused and converts this to energy that can be distributed evenly, meaning that even low treatment settings can be very effective at treating and managing a variety of conditions, while minimizing the risk of adverse effects that can usually be associated with other forms of energy such as normal IPL.
Once the target chromophore has been determined (either melanin for pigment or Haemoglobin for veins and redness) it will be treated using the DYE VL or DYE SR handpiece which selectively targets the chromophore while keeping surrounding tissue intact. The target is destroyed and is broken down by the body and gradually filtered out over time.
We offer individual treatments, but we recommend starting off with a course. Most people achieve results after 1 session but best results after 3, these will be spaced 4 weeks apart.Book a Consultation

Frequently asked questions
Am I a suitable candidate for Harmony Laser?
The team at Mediface Aesthetics will take a detailed look at your concerns and the individual condition of your skin, to determine whether this treatment will benefit you. Harmony XL PRO™ DYE VL and DYE SR can be used on most untanned skin types and vascular/pigmented lesions; however, prior to treatment a consultation will be carried out where you will be asked to give informed consent, and a test patch will be carried out at least 24 hours before your first treatment.
Is Harmony XL Pro™ safe?
The Harmony XL PRO™ DYE VL and SR is clinically proven to be both safe and effective. It is always advisable to have these procedures performed by a skilled and trained medical professional to ensure a safe outcome. The procedure itself uses approved technologies and any concerns can be discussed with Mediface Aesthetics’ medically trained team, prior to treatment.
Is Harmony Xl Pro™ painful?
During Harmony XL PRO™ DYE VL / SR treatment, you will feel the warmth of the laser pass over your skin, but the cooling mechanism will help to make this more comfortable for you.
Are there any associated risks or side effects?
The treated area may feel warm after treatment and it is normal to have some redness, some darkening of pigment or veins (this is a good sign) and you may experience some soreness which can last up to 24 hours.
How much downtime can I expect to experience?
Immediately following treatment, you may experience a mild warmth, swelling and redness in the area, which will settle quickly.
You can return to work immediately.
However, we do recommend that you:
- Apply SPF 30 or above daily
- Avoid heat treatments on your face for 24 hours
- Avoid sun exposure 2 weeks prior and 2 weeks following treatment.
- Do not scrub or use harsh exfoliants on the skin which may have scabbed or formed a crust.
- Do keep the skin hydrated and allow the skin to naturally exfoliate the crusts over the following 7-14 days.
- For vascular lesions, be very gentle with the skin in the 48 hours following treatment, avoid any activities that could cause the vessels to dilate for 48 hours.
