Men and women alike are making unwanted facial and body hair a thing of the past – thanks to the Cutera CoolGlide® laser. Save time every day when you give up the razor. The Cutera CoolGlide Laser was designed to be the most outstanding laser hair removal system on the market for all skin types, from light to dark, including tanned patients. Its unique design, longer wavelength and innovative cooling allow extremely effective, safe and permanent results.
Cleared by the FDA for permanent hair reduction, the CoolGlide laser can treat men and women of all skin types and tones safely and effectively. It permanently removes hair from all parts of the body including the face, legs, arms, underarms, bikini and back — even with your summer tan.
Now at Vein Institute & Medi Spa, say goodbye to long treatment sessions for the large areas such as the back and legs. Now you can get the same great results only faster!
Our new ProWave laser combines unrivaled treatment speed with optimal results and safety. This means that treatment times will be cut in half or more allowing patients to get back to their busy lives. Six to eight treatments will still be needed every 5-8 weeks, depending on the area of the body, for optimal results.
What do CoolGlide treatments feel like?
As the name implies, the CoolGlide Laser 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 happens after the treatment?
Immediately following your CoolGlide treatment, the area may appear a bit red and swollen. 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, but it is permissible to shave.
How many treatments does it take?
Most areas require six treatments. However, the number of laser hair removal treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors including: 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. Laser hair removal works 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.
