*results may vary
Laser hair removal works when there is color in the hair. The laser is attracted to the melanin in the hair follicle and the heat produced then destroys the hair follicle. Clients with light hair may see only moderate improvement and may need a greater number of treatment sessions.
The laser feels like a mild sting for a fraction of a second. The Excel HR™ Laser has a built in sapphire contact cooling window and tip that provides maximal comfort and protects the skin.
An upper lip and chin can be done in 5 to 10 minutes. Underarms or bikini lines usually take 15 to 20 minutes. Legs and backs take longer. Allow additional time if a topical numbing cream is applied (per patient request).
The number of treatments required for optimal results varies depending on the area treated, hair density, growth cycle, treatment parameters used, and a number of other factors. Typically 6 treatments, 4 to 8 weeks apart may be required to achieve the desired results.
Our laser is FDA approved for lasting hair reduction. Most patients will lose 15 to 20% of hair with each treatment. Everyone will have some re-growth with time regardless of the technology used. The laser is 60 to 90% effective in hair reduction. Hair that grows back will tend to be much finer and less dense.
