Laser Hair & Vein Removal
The Cutera Laser Hair Removal Difference
The CUTERA xeo® machine with the truPulse™ handpiece is the best laser hair removal system on the market for all skin types and tones, from light to dark, including tanned patients. Its unique design, longer wavelength, and innovative cooling design, allow extremely effective, safe and permanent results.
What areas can be treated with truPulse™?
The truPulse™ handpiece can remove hair from all parts of the body including the face, legs, arms, underarms, and back. It can also treat sensitive areas like the chest, nipples, and bikini line.
How many treatments will I need?
Most areas require 3-6 treatments. However, the number of laser hair removal treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors – hair thickness, the area treated and your hair’s growth cycle. Interestingly, not all hairs are actively growing at the same time and actually go through three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting. Laser hair removal treatments work by disabling the hair that is principally in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments may be necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.
What are the possible side effects?
Although patients experience few side effects, the most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to a sunburn. These effects typically last for several hours or less. In rare instances, blistering may occur. Consult with your medical professional for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.
How does laser hair removal compare with other hair removal methods?
Shaving, waxing, and depilatory creams are all temporary methods which must be repeated on a frequent basis. Laser hair removal offers permanent hair reduction for lasting results.
How does laser hair removal compare with electrolysis?
Electrolysis is a tedious, invasive, and painful process that involves inserting a needle into each individual hair follicle and delivering an electrical charge to them one at a time. Electrolysis often requires years of treatments at regular intervals. By delivering light energy to hundreds of hair follicles at a time, the laser hair removal effectively treats an area in just seconds that would take over an hour with electrolysis.
Why choose CUTERA xeo® Laser Hair Removal with truPulse™ over other laser hair removal systems?
Using the latest technology in laser hair removal, the CUTERA xeo® Laser Hair Removal with truPulse™ can rapidly treat large areas without the limitations of older technologies. The CUTERA xeo® Laser Hair Removal with truPulse™ has longer wavelengths that allows it to be used safely and effectively on patients with light or dark skin as well as tanned skin. Unlike other systems, the CUTERA xeo® Laser Hair Removal with truPulse™ can treat the fine hair on a woman’s upper lip just as easily and effectively as the coarse hair on a man’s back. The cooled handpiece increases patient comfort and minimizes the adverse skin reaction commonly seen with other lasers.
