Excel HR is a dual wavelength laser treatment for removing unwanted hairs on the skin. The Excel HR handpiece has 2 wavelengths: 755nm for light-skinned individuals and 1064nm for darker-skinned individuals. The handpiece is equipped with a sapphire contact cooling plate to ensure patient comfort. The handpiece emits laser energy which is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat to damage the tube-shaped sacs within the hair follicles that produce hair. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth.
