Unwanted hair can be nightmare. The constant shaving, waxing, plucking, or the use of those skin-irritating creams can make the situation even worse. However, with laser hair removal, getting rid of unwanted hair is easier than ever.
Men and woman alike are experiencing the amazing benefits of laser hair removal for all areas of the body with the Cutera CoolGlide laser system.
The Cutera CoolGlide laser system is one of the best, most advanced laser hair removal systems available on the market today. This system allows dermatologists to treat all skin types and ethnicities due to its advanced development. The design is unique and allows longer wavelengths of light, combined with an innovative cooling technique that provides an extremely safe, effective treatment with permanent results on all areas of the body.
The Cutera CoolGlide system uses the latest technology in laser hair removal, and can rapidly treat larger areas without the limitations associated with older laser hair removal systems. The longer wavelength makes safe for all skin types, including tanned skin. It can treat areas of fine hair and coarse hair on men and women with ease, and the cooling hand piece increases patient comfort and can reduce and even eliminate the adverse skin reactions common with other laser treatments.
Most patients will benefit from three to six treatments. It is important for them to understand that laser hair removal cannot be done in just one session. This is because of the growth cycle. Not all hair is actively growing at the same time, and goes through a number of phases including growth, resting, and regression. By scheduling several appointments a few weeks apart, patients are able to target all the hair follicles for permanent results.
Treatment is comfortable, and many patients notice a slight stinging sensation followed by cooling. No anesthetics or pain medication is needed, though topical anesthetics may be used on sensitive treatment areas. After the session, patients may experience short-term redness and swelling, as well as shedding of the hair over the next week. Patients are discouraged from waxing or plucking hair, but they can shave between sessions.
