Laser hair removal is a safe, painless procedure that uses pulses of laser light to target the pigments in the hair follicle. The pigments absorb the light, which damages the structure of the hair follicle.
With the popularity of laser hair removal on the rise, you may be considering treatments for yourself. So many laser technologies for hair removal are now available, it can be hard to determine which option is right for you.
At Bergen Aesthetics in Paramus, New Jersey, we use the CuteraⓇ CoolGlide® laser hair removal system. Let us tell you why we think it’s your best option.
Treats all skin types
Dr. Ohanian can use the Cutera CoolGlide laser system to reduce unwanted body hair regardless of your skin type. She creates a custom treatment plan to address unsightly hair on your legs and can even treat hair on your:
- Bikini line
Powerful enough to remove hair from these areas, CoolGlide is also gentle enough to treat more sensitive areas, including your eyebrows, upper lip, and chin.
While other laser treatments aren’t effective on darker skin tones or tanned skin, CoolGlide is designed to treat any skin and hair type to give you satisfying results.
The hair cycle has different phases, and the CoolGlide system treats hair in the active growth phase. As a result, you need to have several laser sessions to effectively address hair follicles as they move into their active growth phases.
You may need 4-6 sessions to achieve your desired results, and you can expect to return to your usual activities without any limitations after each treatment.
Dr. Ohanian will address factors like your skin tone, hair thickness, and removal locations during your initial consultation to determine how many sessions you’ll need.
Few side effects
Laser hair removal with the Cutera CoolGlide is highly effective in damaging the hair follicle beneath the surface of your skin without causing damage to surrounding tissue.
Immediately after treatment, the treated skin may appear slightly red or swollen, but those effects should resolve within a few hours.
To keep your skin in great condition, you should use a high-quality moisturizer. You also need to limit your exposure to the sun, especially in the initial days after treatment. Every time you go outside, make sure to apply a protective sunscreen to skin exposed to the sun, especially in the treatment areas.
Permanent hair reduction
CoolGlide offers a permanent reduction in hair. Once the laser treats the active hair follicles, they will no longer be able to grow hair.
As a result, your skin remains smooth, hair free, and healthy looking.
Ditch shaving accessories for good
Because CoolGlide gives you long-lasting results, you can finally get rid of the messy waxes, rusted razors, and painful tweezers.
You no longer have to spend money on shaving supplies or on high-priced temporary hair removal services at the salon.
Hair removal with CoolGlide is a safe and effective option for men and women who are looking for a better way to remain hair free.
