Laser Hair Removal
What is Laser Hair Removal?
CoolGlide Laser Hair Removal is a non-invasive system that treats an area in seconds, delivering light energy to hundreds of hair follicles at a time. The laser can treat patients of all skin types and skin tones from light to dark, even tanned skin, rapidly and effectively. Due to its unique cooling design and longer wavelength, the result is safe and permanent hair reduction for face and body.
Why choose CoolGlide Laser Hair Removal over other Laser Hair Removal systems?
The CoolGlide’s advanced technology uses a longer wavelength which helps in deep penetration of the hair follicle. It can remove a woman’s fine upper lip hair as easily as coarse hair on a man’s back, helping to permanently reduce hair for a wide range of skin types. The cooling system minimizes discomfort and skin reaction usually seen with other laser hair removal systems.
What areas can be treated by CoolGlide Laser Hair Removal?
The CoolGlide can be used to remove hair from the face and body including sensitive areas like bikini lines and nipples.
What can I expect during my visit?
During the treatment, the hand piece cools and soothes as it moves along the skin. There might be a mild pinching or stinging sensation. Although no pain medication is necessary, some prefer to use a topical anaesthetic for more sensitive areas.
How many treatments are required for best results?
The hair will grow again, but it will shed after the complete treatment cycle is done. In-between treatments, it is okay for you to shave but do not pluck or wax the hair.
Three to six treatments are needed for most areas but there are other factors to consider, such as hair thickness, hair growth cycle, and the area treated. CoolGlide Laser Hair Removal disables the hair which is at the stage of active growth (anagen hairs), therefore hairs that are in a different cycle of growth will need to be treated at a later time.
What is the downtime?
The treated area will be a bit red or swollen after the treatment but this should resolve itself within a few hours. You can go back to your normal activities right away but it is necessary to use sunscreen when exposed to the sun.
