Imagine no more painful waxing, tweezing, electrolysis or shaving of unwanted facial or body hair. It’s easy with the Cutera CoolGlide laser hair removal service at Glamoi Med Spa.
Now men and women of all skin types can safely get rid of this distressing problem with 21st Century technology that provides permanent hair reduction – even if you have a suntan.
Laser Hair Removal for Men and Women
Cutera CoolGlide is currently the most innovative way to remove unwanted hair, even if you have sensitive skin or a skin condition that leaves you with ingrown hair or folliculitis. It’s safe for all skin types and will work on any hair with pigment.
The Cutera CoolGlide Difference
With its unique cooling design, the Cutera CoolGlide is simply the best hair removal system on the market for all skin types and tones, from light to dark, including those who are tanned.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Feel?
As the CoolGlide handpiece moves along your skin, you will feel a cooling sensation. When pulses of light are delivered, some experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation, followed by a cooling sensation. Most users find the treatment to be relatively painless and incredibly addictive—which is probably why no one gets just one area treated!
Will Treatment Restrict My Activities?
After your CoolGlide treatment, you can immediately resume your normal activities, although some redness may occur. We recommend using sunscreen on any treated areas exposed to the sun. Also, your physician may recommend the use of a specially formulated skin care product line or prescribe a skin care regimen specifically formulated for your skin type.
What Are the Side Effects Associated With Laser Hair Removal?
Although few side effects are associated with laser hair removal, the most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to a sunburn. Typically, these effects only last for a few hours or less. In rare instances, blistering may occur. Our team at Glamoi Med Spa can provide you with complete information on the benefits and risks of the treatment during your consultation.
How Does CoolGlide Differ From Other Hair Removal Methods?
Shaving, waxing, and depilatory creams are only temporary hair removal solutions that must be frequently repeated. CoolGlide, on the other hand, offers permanent hair reduction for lasting results. It is also preferable to electrolysis, which is a tedious, invasive, and painful process that involves the insertion of a needle into each individual hair follicle, followed by an electrical charge. Also, electrolysis often requires years of treatments at regular intervals. Instead, the CoolGuide system effectively treats hundreds of hair follicles at one time, delivering light energy to an area in just seconds that would take over an hour with electrolysis.
The CoolGlide’s longer wavelength allows it to be used safely and effectively regardless of skin tone. Also, unlike other systems, CoolGlide can treat the fine hair on a woman’s upper lip just as smoothly and effectively as the coarse hair on a man’s back. What’s more, the cooled handpiece provides comfort and minimizes the adverse skin reaction common with other lasers.
What Areas Can Be Treated with CoolGlide?
CoolGlide can remove hair from any part of your body. That includes your face, arms, underarms, back and legs. It can also be used to treat sensitive areas of the anatomy, such as the chest, nipples, and bikini line.
How Many Treatments Are Needed?
Most areas require three to six, one-hour sessions of treatment. Of course, the actual number of CoolGlide treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on numerous factors, such as hair thickness, the area being treated and your hair’s growth cycle. Your hair goes through three phases: growth, regression, and resting and not all hairs are in the same phase at the same time. CoolGlide works by disabling the hair that is in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments – 4-8 weeks apart – may be necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.
What Happens Following Treatment?
After your CoolGlide session, the treated area may appear a bit red and swollen. Three to seven days later, you may experience what seems to be regrowth of hair. Most of these hairs are not re-growing but are actually being shed as a result of your treatment. Between treatments, you should not wax or pluck your hair, but you can shave if you wish.
