For many individuals, lasers offer a safe, effective, and long-term solution for hair removal.
However, treatment results have the potential to vary widely, and some devices tend to perform much better on fair skin and dark, coarse hair.
Fortunately, Cutera recognized these limitations and developed excel HR.
This laser system provides consistent hair reduction for all patients and skin tones. It can even be used on tanned skin.
Lasers emit light-based energy at a specific wavelength that is absorbed by melanin in the hair follicle.
As a result, the laser is able to heat and destroy follicles and limit regrowth.
Unlike other devices, excel HR is a combination of Nd: YAG and Alexandrite lasers and operates at a dual-wavelength.
This functionality eliminates the risk of causing damage to surrounding skin in patients with more naturally-occurring melanin.
It also allows energy to be precisely focused on the hair follicle for a more powerful treatment with fewer sessions.
In addition to treating all skin types and tanned skin, excel HR can be used on any part of the body and many areas of the face.
Patients commonly request treatment of the bikini line, legs, arms, chest, back, neck, and underarms.
This device features an exclusive sapphire contact cooling system that delivers cooling to the skin before, during, and after each pulse.
Therefore, many patients report that the treatment is painless, especially compared to other hair removal systems.
Within 14-21 days after an excel HR treatment, patients can note a sizable reduction in the amount and thickness of hair regrowth.
Other devices can require six-to-nine sessions, but excel HR provides optimal results in four-to-five treatments.
