Questions & Answers
1. What is Excel HR™?
Developed by the pioneers of laser hair removal technology, the Excel HR™ is the next generation premium laser hair removal technology for women and men of all skin types, even tanned skin patients, available all-year-round. This unit is made by Cutera.
2. Why does laser hair removal require multiple treatments?
Laser and other energy-based hair removal requires multiple treatments because hair grows in different phases. Hair can take 6-12 weeks for it to grow from root to surface—this growth stage is known as the anagen stage and this is the perfect time to receive laser hair removal. You know when you are due for your next treatment session when hair in the treated area begins to grow back. It is very important to stick with the treatment schedule that your practitioners suggests—missing a treatment could allow your hair to enter the next stage where hair begins to detach from the hair follicle which can increase the number of treatments originally required.
3. How many treatments will you need?
The total number of treatments varies based on the area treated. Typically, 4-5 treatments spaced 6-8 weeks apart is recommended.
4. Is Excel HR laser hair removal really worth it?
While traditional methods of hair removal, like shaving, waxing and depilatory creams are still the go-to-methods for many, these methods are all temporary and must be repeated on a frequent basis for the rest of your lifetime. The Excel HR laser is the quickest and most affordable solution to rid yourself of unwanted hair. Additionally, excel HR laser hair removal helps you to be much more efficient, economic and green.
