CoolGlide Laser Therapy
Safe and effective hair reduction for all skin types
Men and women alike are making unwanted facial and body hair a thing of the past – thanks to Cutera’s laser hair reduction and laser hair removal treatments. The procedure is safe and effective for permanent hair removal and allows treatment of all skin types, including tanned patients on both men and women. Since only light is used to remove hair, it is totally non-invasive, relatively painless and does not cause some of the irritations typically found with other hair removal methods. With our laser hair removal treatments, you can say goodbye to painful waxing, electrolysis and razors!
How does Laser Hair Reduction work?
Controlled pulses of light are dispersed by the laser to safely penetrate skin and are absorbed by the unwanted hair follicles. Hair follicles that are in the growth phase absorb the heat of the laser, which discourages and finally destroys the potential for re-growth of unwanted hair. It is sometimes necessary for a patient to undergo more than one laser hair removal treatment because this procedure is most effective on hair follicles that are in the growth phase. To make the treatment more comfortable we use the latest technology to cool your skin for your comfort during treatment. Side effects may include blistering, redness or a darkening or lightening of the skin. These conditions quickly disappear within a few days. Patients must avoid exposure to the sun for 2 to 4 weeks prior to and after treatment.
