FAQ’s – Laser Hair Removal
What is CoolGlide laser hair removal?
The CoolGlide laser hair removal system presents a revolution in hair removal. Using technology beyond that of other lasers, the CoolGlide can disable hundreds of hair follicles in less than one second and promises long-lasting results.
The laser system is a non-invasive FDA approved laser specifically designed to eliminate undesired hair from all parts of the body. The CoolGlide generates intense, long-pulsed light through an actively-cooled hand piece. This laser hair removal system effectively disables unwanted pigmented hair follicles, thus impairing their growth. The laser’s cold hand piece is placed gently on the skin and glides along. As pulses of light penetrate the skin, it selectively damages the root of unwanted hair.
The laser can remove hair from all parts of the body including the face, legs, arms, underarms and back, as well as sensitive areas like the chest, nipples and bikini line.
Are there any side effects to laser hair removal?
Short-term side effects may include slight reddening of the skin. These effects typically last less than an hour but, on rare occasions, may last a few days.
How many laser hair removal treatments are required?
The number treatments you may require for optimal long-term benefits depends on the area you wish to have treated. The hair grows in cycles and many factors influence its growth. Age, ethnicity, weight, hormones, diet, medication and metabolism all play a part in your hairs location, thickness and resilience. Most patients require 5–7 laser hair removal treatments to achieve an 80–90% reduction.
Does skin color make any difference with the CoolGlide laser hair removal system?
No. The CoolGlide laser can treat the widest range of skin types because of innovative technology, cooling hand piece and treatment flexibility. Now we can customize each treatment, matching the appropriate laser settings with the patient’s skin type.
Are there any restrictions to my activity after a laser hair removal treatment?
After your laser hair removal treatment you can return to your normal activities immediately. As with any laser treatment, it is a good idea to limit your sun exposure for 3 days. The use of sunscreen is mandatory on any treated areas exposed to the sun.
How does CoolGlide laser compare with other hair removal methods?
Shaving, waxing and depilatory creams are all temporary methods which must be repeated on a frequent basis. Laser hair removal with CoolGlide offers permanent reduction.
