What is Laser Hair Removal?
Are you tired of having to shave, wax, and pluck? Laser hair removal will remove the unsightly hair from your face, underarms, back, legs, bikini area, and elsewhere on the body. Using the advanced Cutera® xeo® laser system, we can provide permanent hair removal in just a few treatment sessions. Best of all, it’s a non-invasive, painless procedure that is safe for almost all skin types and hair colors.
Dr. McRae would be happy to set up a one-on-one consultation with you to go over your specific hair removal goals, as well as to discuss laser hair removal costs and show you some laser hair removal before and after pictures. Please call our offices today to schedule an appointment.
What are the Benefits of the Cutera® xeo® Laser for Hair Removal?
At McRae MD Medical Laser Center, we’re proud to use the xeo® laser for hair removal treatments due to its distinct advantages over other laser systems. Primarily the fact that it’s a customizable laser system, which means that we can adjust the settings to produce maximum hair removal depending on patients’ skin and hair types. It also offers contact cooling to keep the skin cool and comfortable throughout treatment, making laser hair removal more comfortable. Finally, the Cutera® xeo® laser is a multi-application laser that can treat a variety of cosmetic concerns beyond just hair removal.
How is Laser Hair Removal Performed?
Prior to the treatment, a trained technician will apply a topical anesthetic to any sensitive areas as well as provide you with protective eyewear. Then, Dr. McRae will perform your laser hair removal treatment. Using the Cutera® xeo® laser, the procedure works by directing bursts of light at the hair follicles to destroy them and, in effect, inhibit any re-growth. It is a relatively painless procedure that lasts anywhere from 10 minutes to one hour, depending on the size of the treatment area.

Am I a Good Candidate For Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is generally a safe and effective procedure for almost anyone who wants to get rid of unsightly hair on their face or body. However, results will vary depending on your hair growth cycle, thickness and color, and treatment area. The best candidates tend to be those with dark, coarse hair and light skin. If you have blonde, gray, or red hair, it may be more difficult to treat. Also, pregnant women and anyone with a skin disorder such as psoriasis or dermatitis should not undergo laser hair removal.
Is There Any Downtime After Laser Hair Removal?
The best part about laser hair removal is that it requires little to no downtime, and you can resume normal activities immediately. You should, however, discontinue waxing or using depilatory creams after the treatment. The most common reported side effects of laser hair removal are swelling, soreness and redness of the treatment area. Your technician will go over the proper after-care routine, which includes gentle cleansing of the treatment area with a mild soap and the application of prescribed lotions or ointments. It’s best to stay out of the sun or to wear a strong SPF sunscreen if you’re going to be exposed to any sunlight.
What Results Can I Expect from Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal tends to be long lasting, and most hair is permanently removed. However, it can be difficult to ensure complete and permanent hair removal in a given treatment area. Some areas will inevitably experience minor hair regrowth, but it will be much thinner than before. Upper body hair removal typically lasts from seven to 11 weeks; mid-body results last 10 to 16 weeks; and leg treatments last from 11 to 17 weeks. Keep in mind that it can take a series of six to nine laser hair removal treatments to achieve permanent hair removal.
