What areas can be treated with CoolGlide systems?
The CoolGlide Laser Hair Removal System can reduce hair from all parts of the body including the face, legs, arms, underarms, and back. It can also treat sensitive areas like the chest, nipples, and bikini line.
What do CoolGlide laser hair removal treatments feel like?
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.**
What are the possible side effects of laser hair removal?
Slight reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to a sunburn may occur in some patients. These effects typically last for several hours or less.**
What happens after the treatment?
Immediately following your treatment, the area may appear a bit red and swollen.
Three to seven days after treatment you may experience what seems to be re growth of hair.** Actually, most of these hairs are being shed as a result of your treatment, and are not regrowing.
Are there any restrictions after treatment?
Between treatments, you should not wax or tweeze your hair, but it is permissible to shave.
Following the treatment, some redness and mild swelling may occur, but you can return to your normal activities right away.**
The use of sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun. As always, it is a good idea to limit your sun exposure.
How many treatments will I need?
Most areas require 4-8 treatments,** but the number of CoolGlide treatments you may require for optimal long-term benefits depends on various factors such as your hair’s thickness, the area being treated, and your hair’s growth cycle.
Interestingly, not all hairs are actively growing at the same time but actually go through three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting. CoolGlide systems work by disabling the hair 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.**
How do CoolGlide lasers compare with other hair removal methods?
Shaving, waxing, and depilatory creams are all temporary methods which must be repeated on a frequent basis. CoolGlide lasers offer hair reduction for lasting results.**
How do CoolGlide lasers compare with Electrolysis?
Electrolysis is a tedious, invasive, and painful process that involves inserting a needle into each individual hair follicle and delivering an electrical charge to them one at a time. Electrolysis often requires years of treatments at regular intervals.
By delivering light energy to hundreds of hair follicles at a time, CoolGlide lasers effectively treat an area in just seconds that would take over an hour with electrolysis.**
Why choose CoolGlide lasers over other laser hair removal systems?
The CoolGlide system’s longer wavelength allows it to be used safely and effectively on patients with light or dark skin as well as tanned skin.
Unlike other systems, CoolGlide lasers 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 handpiece increases patient comfort and minimizes the adverse skin reaction commonly seen with other lasers.
