After years of waxing, tweezing, and shaving, isn’t it time you step into the 21st century and remove that hair permanently? On average, 130.8 minutes are spent each month shaving forever versus 30 minutes on the new Excel HR laser every other month for only 8 months total. Over your lifetime, an average of $10,207 is spent on shaving supplies versus $2,000 for a package of Excel HR treatments.
Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly performed procedures in the United States. It can eliminate hair from anywhere. Some of the most common places for women are the underarms, legs, face, and bikini. Many men choose to sculpt their beards, remove uni-brows, correct beary backs, treat ear and nose hairs. Laser hair removal is a safe procedure that can result in permanent hair loss after three to seven sessions.
If you have darker hair and light skin, you are a prime candidate for laser hair removal. That is because the laser targets dark hair best. Those with lighter hair may also undergo laser hair removal, but may require more sessions. The laser works by killing the roots of hairs over several visits. The root absorbs the light, transferring it into heat energy, eventually killing the hair follicle. After several sessions, the root stops growing, resulting in no hair.
The frequency and number of visits required will depend on how well your hair responds to the laser. Most visits will occur four to six weeks apart and you should remain hair free during these times.
We just bought the state of the art Excel HR laser from Cutera. Combing two lasers in one, it works quickly with 50% less discomfort compared to other similar lasers. We are excited to offer this treatment to our patients – whole backs can be completed in around 8-10 minutes! And who doesn’t like the fact it hurts much less than other machines! Most patients feel only minor discomfort, such as prickling or stinging on the area being treated. This laser can also treat all skin types.
