Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is one of the most popular and well-established treatments in cosmetic dermatology. Several different lasers are available, but the team at McGuiness Dermatology & Plastic Surgery use the Cutera excel HR, a premium laser technology that’s proven safe and effective for all skin types.

How does the Cutera excel HR work?

The excel HR system combines the gold standard of laser wavelengths for optimal hair removal. This laser utilizes separate wavelengths to treat both fine hair on fair skin and coarse hair on dark or tanned skin.

Laser energy penetrates the tissues beneath the surface of your skin, deactivating the hair growth at the follicle. Since follicles cycle through periods of hair growth and dormancy, you will need multiple treatments for optimal results.

Cutera excel HR also continuously cools your skin with sapphire contact cooling technology. This maximizes your comfort and safety throughout treatment.

What areas can the Cutera excel HR treat?

FaceAdjustable spot sizes allow the Cutera excel HR to treat a variety of areas on your body. The team at McGuiness Dermatology & Plastic Surgery uses this laser to remove hair in most parts of the body, including:

  • Back
  • Chest
  • Bikini area
  • Underarms
  • Neck
  • Shoulders

In addition to hair removal, the team at McGuiness Dermatology & Plastic Surgery uses the excel HR to reduce the appearance of benign pigmented lesions (sun spots) and facial veins.

What should I expect from a laser hair removal treatment?

First, your provider at McGuiness Dermatology & Plastic Surgery discusses your areas of concern and aesthetic goals during a consultation. Then, they recommend an individualized treatment plan that best addresses your needs.

Everyone is different, but most men and women get between two and six laser treatments to achieve desired results.

Side effects are minor and fade within a few days, but you may experience some redness, swelling, or discomfort at the treatment site.

Once the follicles are treated, the hair won’t grow back for several months or years, if at all. If the hair does grow back, it’s finer, sparser, and lighter in color. After the initial round of treatments, you may need maintenance laser hair removal about once every year or two.
