Cutera Excel HR Hair removal Treatments
Treatment options with the Excel HR are wide and varied depending on the chosen laser.
With the Alexandrite laser, treatment options include: temporary and permanent hair reduction; benign pigmented lesion removal; wrinkle removal; and photocoagulation of dermatological vascular lesions, such as port wine stains, hemangiomas, and telangiectasias. Treatment with the Alexandrite laser is safe on all skin types (Fitzpatrick I – VI), including tanned skin.
The Nd:YAG laser also offers a variety of treatment options that are safe for all skin types (Fitzpatrick I – VI), including tanned skin. One major treatment area includes coagulation and hemostasis of benign vascular lesions, including port wine stains, hemangiomas, warts, telangiectasias, rosacea, venus lake, leg veins, spider veins, and poikiloderma of civatte. The Nd:YAG laser is also effective in treatment of benign pigmented lesions, including age spots (lentigos), sun spots (solar lentigos), café au lait macules, seborrheic keratosis, chloasma, verrucae, skin tags, keratosis, plaques, and tattoo removal. Additionally, benign cutaneous lesions – such as warts, scars, striae, and psoriasis – can effectively be treated with the Nd:YAG laser. Finally, permanent and temporary hair reduction, wrinkle treatment, pseudofolliculitisbarbae (PFB) treatment, and reduction of red pigmentation in hypertrophic and keloid scars are all options with the Nd:YAG laser.
Cutera Excel HR Maintenance
While annual maintenance of the Excel HR is recommended to ensure proper performance, there are suggested user maintenance routines that can be performed on a more regular basis. For instance, users should clean external surfaces, the handpiece, and the touchscreen display weekly or as needed. Additionally, the heat exchanger intake should be inspected weekly and cleaned at least on a monthly basis. Finally, the coolant reservoir, which will be filled at installation, should be monitored regularly and refilled if the water evaporates. These easy steps will lead to minimal need for service repairs; however, any and all service repairs should always be provided by a qualified service engineer.
