Laser Hair Removal: Overview
Men and women alike are making unwanted facial and body hair a thing of the past without painful waxing, electrolysis or razors! We offer two of the most advanced and effective hair removal systems. Sciton hair removal, known as Forever Bare BBL, is safe, fast and effective with lasting results. The Cutera CoolGlide was designed to be the most outstanding laser hair removal system on the market for all skin types. Its unique design, longer wavelength, and innovative cooling allow extremely effective, safe and permanent results.
Laser Hair Removal: Procedure
The CoolGlide handpiece cools and soothes as it glides along your skin. When the pulse of light is delivered, some patients experience a mild tingling sensation. No local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required. This is a painless way to eliminate hair.
Most areas require multiple 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 follicle 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 be necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.
Laser Hair Removal: Recovery
Immediately following your CoolGlide treatment, the area may appear a bit red and swollen, although this is rare. Three to seven days after treatment you may experience what seems to be regrowth of hair. Actually, most of these hairs are being shed as a result of your treatment and are not regrowing. Between treatments you should not wax or pluck your hair, shaving is permitted.
