Laser Hair Removal For African American Skin
According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), laser hair removal is one of the leading non-surgical medical procedures today. You can achieve safe and long-term benefits with advanced laser treatments to get rid of unwanted hair. However, many laser devices are not appropriate for darker skin tones, such as African American skin. This is where EllEve Med Spa offers Cutera’s state of the art laser hair removal technology excel HR that combines the effects of two different wavelengths to work well for all skin tones, including African American skin. EllEve Med Spa provides laser hair removal to patients in Woodland Hills, San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, California, and surrounding locations.
Combination of Two Laser Wavelengths
Cutera was the pioneer in high-powered Nd:YAG laser technology that allows for safe and effective removal of unwanted body hair in people with darker skin, such as African American skin. Now Cutera has combined Nd:YAG laser with another innovative laser device called Alexandrite for more successful outcomes for people with any skin tone. The latest technological solution called Excel HR combines the following:
- High-power 755nm Alexandrite – ideal for removing finer hair on skin types I, II, and III
- Long-pulse 1064 nm Nd:YAG – safest for removing hair on darker or tanned skin types
Both these devices are used along with a superior contact cooling mechanism to ensure better comfort for hair removal for all skin types.
Proven Lasers for All Skin Types and Tones
EllEve medical spa uses excel HR, which combines two laser wavelengths that are the gold standard in hair removal. Melanin pigment in the skin can maximally absorb the 755 nm Alexandrite laser wavelength. This makes the perfect solution for removal of finer hair on multiple skin types. The 1064 nm Nd:YAG is the ideal laser wavelength for long-lasting hair reduction on darker skin types and tanned skin, including African American skin.
Consistent, Uniform Looking Results
Cutera’s truPulse technology delivers sustained, constant laser energy through entire duration of the pulse. This allows for more consistent and natural looking results. The index matching delivery of excel HR leads to more effective coupling of the laser beams to the targeted hair structures. With index matching, the backscattered laser light can escape, which provides additional protection to the top skin layers from the laser heat, without reducing the efficacy of the treatment. Stellar innovation has brought us to this point.
Sapphire Contact Cooling
Sapphire contact cooling in excel HR delivers constant cooling, which ensures maximum safety and comfort for you throughout the laser treatment session. Patient preference studies have shown that almost all the patients choose excel HR over other comparable laser hair removal technologies when it comes to comfort and patient satisfaction. EllEve has chosen excel HR because it is one of the exceptional laser hair removal systems that can treat darker skin tones, including African American skin without damaging the epidermal skin layers. EllEve med spa receives patients from Woodland Hills, San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, California, and nearby areas for safe and dependable laser hair removal treatments.
