Dr. Mosel believes the Cutera excel HR laser is the safest, most effective laser available today for women and men who want to remove unwanted hair. The excel HR is ideal for all skin types and hair colors.
Before treatment, Dr. Mosel or his female laser technician reviews your health history and discusses the benefits, risks, and expectations of laser hair removal. He or she takes “before” photos to compare with your results after the procedure.
During treatment, Dr. Mosel or the laser technician gently presses the excel HR laser to your skin. As the laser light damages the hair follicle, you may feel a slight snapping sensation, but you won’t feel any discomfort. The Cutera’s Premium Sapphire Contact Cooling technology keeps you cool and comfortable throughout the entire process.
The length of your procedure depends on the location and size of the area being treated. Cutera excel HR laser hair removal has no downtime, so you can resume your daily activities immediately after leaving the office. If needed, apply ice to relieve mild redness or swelling after treatment.
Because hair grows in cycles, Dr. Mosel generally recommends multiple treatments for optimal results. As the old hair sheds, laser hair removal is needed to target new growth.
Most men and women have excellent results in as little as three sessions, scheduled every 4-8 weeks apart. For men and women with more hair or larger treatment areas, Dr. Mosel may recommend more sessions. The Cutera excel HR laser offers a long-term reduction in hair regrowth.
