Shaving and waxing can take valuable time out of your busy schedule. Having to constantly shave before a date or prepare to be summer-ready can also be stressful. Laser hair removal offers a long-lasting solution to unwanted body hair. Synergy MedAesthetics offers the Cutera Laser Hair Removal Excel HR, the latest advancement in laser hair removal. This laser system has built-in cooling technology to keep you comfortable throughout the treatment and is more effective than other laser hair removal systems.
Ideal Laser Hair Removal Candidates
- Most patients over the age of 18 are ideal candidates for laser hair removal.
- Previously many laser systems were not able to treat darker skin tones, but the Excel HR comes with a dual laser system to treat all varieties of skin tones.
- The Cutera Laser Hair Removal Excel HR can treat dark or colored hair. Hair that is white, graying, or blonde can not be treated.
Before Your Treatment
The first step in your Tri-Cities laser hair removal treatment is a consultation with one of our highly trained providers. They will examine the area you want to treat to ensure you are a good candidate for the treatment. During this time, they will also look at your skin and hair type to better tailor the treatment to you.
If you are determined to be an ideal candidate, we will ask that you stop all waxing and plucking for a few weeks before treatment. On the day of your treatment, we ask that you arrive having just shaved the areas being treated.
What Areas Can Be
Almost any area with hair can be treated. Some of the most common areas for women include the upper lip, chin, face, bikini/Brazilian, legs, underarms, abdomen, and toes. For men, common areas are beard, ears, neck, back, chest, and hands.

How the Treatment Works
Before the treatment begins, the skin will be cleaned, and you will be asked to wear laser-safe glasses to protect your eyes. Then the Cutera Excel HR device will be gently moved across the treatment area. The device has a built-in sapphire cooling system that delivers a cool wave to the area before it is treated. This allows the area to stay comfortable when the heat from the laser is applied.
The heat will enter the hair follicle and safely burn it. This leads to the follicle disintegrating and any hair attached to it falling off. Because the follicle is the root of the hair, once it is destroyed, there will no longer be any new hair growth from the follicle for years to come. After the heat is delivered to the area, a second cooling blast is delivered to cool the area. This cycle is repeated across the treatment area.
After Your Laser Hair Removal Treatment
Once the treatment is complete, you may experience some bruising, swelling, and tenderness in the skin, which should vanish in a few hours. Some results will be visible right away, while more clear results will be seen in the first few weeks. In order to achieve ideal and long-lasting results, it is recommended that you undergo six to eight treatments over the course of several months.
