Learn how Laser Hair Removal works…

Razors? Wax Strips? Threading? Oh, My! With Cutera CoolGlide Laser hair removal on the market, there is no longer a need for the frustration of constantly trying to remove hair with old temporary methods.

Now women and men alike are making unwanted facial and body hair a thing of the past with permanent laser hair reduction with CoolGlide laser technology. Cleared by the FDA for permanent laser hair reduction, the CoolGlide laser is able to treat both men and women of all skin types and tones effectively and safely because of the innovative cooling design and longer wavelength.

During the treatment for laser hair reduction, a pulse of laser light is delivered, a small stinging sensation is felt, but as the name implies, the CoolGlide hand piece cools and soothes as it glides along the treatment area. After several days, hairs begin to shed. New hairs that grow will start to come in finer and you may notice patches of hair that do not grow.

Most areas require at 6 different treatments sessions of laser hair removal. However, the number of treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on several factors that include hair thickness, the hair growth cycle of the specific area, patients’ ethnicity, and even hormones. With laser hair removal, the laser can only treat hairs that are currently in the growth phase. In order to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area, multiple treatments are needed to insure the best results.

Whether it’s the fine hair on your upper lip, the ugly ingrown hairs in the bikini area, or the coarse thick hair on your back, Cutera CoolGlide Laser treatments may be your best bet to reduce your unwanted hair for good.
