Laser Hair Removal Candidates
Men and women of any skin type may benefit from laser hair removal with CoolGlide®. If you feel that the hair on your arms, legs, or underarms is unattractive or conspicuous, you are likely a good candidate for laser hair removal. Larger areas of the body, such as the chest and back, can also easily be treated with CoolGlide®. This safe and effective laser can also remove unwanted hair at the bikini line, groin area, and face.
Most commonly, patients with light skin and dark hair benefit from laser hair removal, though all skin types qualify for the procedure. Candidates should refrain from plucking or tweezing hair, or undergoing electrolysis, at least six weeks prior to their laser hair removal procedure, since this can damage hair roots. Six weeks prior to treatment, patients should stay out of the sun, and avoid using a tanning bed.
About Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures today. CoolGlide® is an innovative laser that features an extended wave length and special cooling design, for optimal results and patient comfort. As we run the hand piece over your skin, you may experience a slight pinching or stinging, but CoolGlide® provides a soothing sensation to counteract any mild discomfort. Anesthetic is not used during treatment. You may notice swelling and redness immediately after treatment, but it should subside within a few hours.
Typically one week after treatment, you may notice what appears to be hair regrowth, but your hair will actually be shedding.
Depending on the thickness of your hair, the treatment area, and stage of hair growth at the time of treatment, three to six treatment sessions are generally recommended for optimal results. Sessions can be scheduled four to six weeks apart. Laser hair removal targets hairs in the growth phase.
Typically one week after treatment, you may notice what appears to be hair regrowth, but your hair will actually be shedding. You should not wax or pluck the hair. You should only shave, or let the hair shed naturally. You may notice skin irritation and pigment changes after treatment. but this will gradually subside. It is recommended that you wear sunscreen on the treated areas to reduce sunburn risk.
