No More Shaving For Life

There are certain things that we all take for granted. Shaving, like brushing our teeth, is one of those things that we just consider to be a fact of life. We presume that after a certain age in our youth we’ll be doing this daily task forever.

Well, at the Michigan Cosmetic Surgery Center we have a new method for hair removal that I think everyone will appreciate. Cool Glide is the newest and most diverse laser procedure for all skin types.

With Cutera CoolGlide Laser, men and women alike are making unwanted facial and body hair a thing of the past. And this is done without all those horrible and painful things like waxing, electrolysis or using a thousand razors.

The Cutera CoolGlide was designed to be the most outstanding laser hair removal system on the market for all skin types, from light to dark skinned individuals, including tanned patients. The Patented PowerFlex™ technology provides fast treatments and high efficacy. Cutera’s unique design, longer wavelength, and innovative cooling all allow for extremely effective, safe and permanent results.

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; however some patients may prefer to use a topical anesthetic when sensitive areas are treated.

Most areas require 3-6 treatments. However, the number of CoolGlide treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors – hair thickness, the area treated and your hair’s growth cycle. Interestingly, not all hairs are actively growing at the same time and actually go through three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting. CoolGlide treatments work by disabling the hair that is principally in the active growth phase at the time of treatment.
