Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?

Laser hair removal has been a widely popular procedure for both men and women since it came to fruition decades ago. After all, who wouldn’t love to toss their razors, tweezers, and painful waxing kits in the garbage for good?

In the past, laser hair removal was less than ideal. It was painful and let’s face it, not that effective. Today, patients seeking to nix hair on their legs, upper arms, chest, bikini area, and even face can do so relatively pain-free and effectively.

Here at Dorner Plastic Surgery, we offer a revolutionary solution to unwanted hair. You can experience safe, effective results with up to 50% less pain, thanks to the CUTERA HR Excel laser treatment.

A side-by-side study compared the comfort-levels of CUTERA HR Excel to its top competitors. A whopping 100% of people stated that they preferred the CUTERA HR Excel. Now, that’s impressive!

What Can I Expect During the Procedure?

Prior to your laser hair removal treatment, a topical anesthetic may be applied to reduce discomfort. Your provider will then use the handheld CUTERA HR device on the treatment area. The device carefully directs laser energy, specifically targeting the follicle. CUTERA HR Excel uses a sophisticated sapphire contact cooling system that protects skin from overheating and thus preventing unnecessary pain. Your procedure can last anywhere from several minutes to over an hour depending on the size of the treatment area.

What’s Recovery Time Like?

For several hours after your CUTERA HR Excel procedure, you may experience redness and swelling throughout the treatment area. A cold compress should quickly resolve any discomfort you’re feeling.
