1. Laser Hair Removal

We use Cutera CoolGlide Nd:YAG Laser for hair removal. It is cleared by FDA for permanent hair reduction. It is one of the best laser hair removal systems on the market for all skin tones, from light to dark, including tanned patients. Its unique design, longer wavelength, and innovative cooling design allow extremely effective, safe and permanent results.

CoolGlide Lasers can remove hair from all parts of the body including the face, legs, arms, underarms, and back. They can also treat sensitive areas like the chest, nipples and bikini line.

As the name implies, the CoolGlide handpiece cools and soothes as it glides along your skin. When the pulse of light is delivered, some patients experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. No local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required.

Most areas require 4-6 treatments, but the number of CoolGlide laser treatments you may require for optimal long-term benefits depends on various factors such as your hair’s thickness, the area treated, and your hair’s growth cycle. Interestingly, not all hairs are actively growing at the same time, but actually go through 3 distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting. CoolGlide lasers work by disabling the hair that is principally in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments may necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.

Immediately following your CoolGlide laser treatment, the area may appear a bit red and swollen. Around 3-7 days after treatment you mat experience what seems to be re-growth of hair. Actually most of these hairs are being shed as a result of your treatment, and are not regrowing. In between treatments you should not wax or pluck your hair, but it is permissible to shave.

Following the treatment, you can return to your normal activities right away. The use of sunscreens is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun. As always, it is a good idea to limit your sun exposure.
