About Laser Hair Reduction

Now men and women alike are making unwanted facial and body hair a thing of the past – thanks to our Cutera CoolGlide Laser. No more painful waxing, electrolysis or razors! The CoolGlide laser delivers state-of-the-art technology for hair removal, and can treat men and women of all skin types and tones safely and effectively.

How it Works & Treatment Sensation

Lasers remove hair by destroying the blood supply to the hair follicle, to prevent the follicle from producing hair. Our laser cools and soothes as it glides along your skin using moisture rich Aloe Vera gel. When the pulse of light is delivered, some patients experience a mild pinching sensation similar to a rubber band snapping the skin. No local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required; however, some patients may prefer to use a topical anesthetic when sensitive areas are treated.

FAQ

Questions Answers
Can I get laser hair reduction if I have dark skin? Yes! Our Cutera CoolGlide Yag sends safe pulses of light into the deep dermal layers, preventing the superficial layers of the skin from burning. Our laser can treat all Fitzpatrick Skin Types (I-VI).
How many treatments will I need? Most areas require 3-6 treatments. Average treatments needed for most people are 6, but some people may need additional treatment depending on the hair growth and area; and to achieve maximum permanent removal. The reason hair removal requires multiple treatments is because the hair grows in cycles. You have much more hair lying dormant under the skin than is actually growing at any given time. The hairs typically change cycles about every 6 weeks. Therefore treatments must be performed about 6 weeks apart.
What areas can be treated? Hair from all parts of the body can be reduced with laser including the face, legs, arms, underarms and back. We can also treat sensitive areas like the chest, areola, ears, and bikini area.
Why choose our laser over other laser hair removal systems? Using the latest technology in laser hair removal, the CoolGlide can rapidly treat large areas without the limitations of older technologies. Our laser can be used safely and effectively on patients with light or dark skin as well as tanned skin. Unlike other systems, the CoolGlide can treat the fine hair on a woman’s upper lip just as easily and effectively as the coarse hair on a man’s back. The cooled hand piece increases client comfort and minimizes the adverse skin reaction commonly seen with other lasers.
