Is Laser Hair Removal Right For Me?

By now you’ve probably heard about laser hair removal. Maybe you’ve considered it in passing, but it’s time to give it some serious thought. You can join the “no razor, no problem” population with the advanced technology that makes the process of unwanted hair removal an easy possibility.

The CoolGlide System

The Medical Spa of Baton Rouge uses the Cutera CoolGlide Laser treatment. Men and women are making unwanted hair a thing of the past with painful waxing or razors but those using The CoolGlide laser receive permanent laser hair removal in a convenient, and efficient manner. The treatment is also effective on people with darker skin types or patients with a suntan.

As the name suggests, the CoolGlide laser treatment cools and soothes as it glides along your skin. Some patients experience mild pinching or stinging sensation; however, many patients feel little no to discomfort.

While no anesthesia or pain medication is typically needed, some patients may prefer to use a topical anesthetic when treating sensitive areas.

One of the benefits of our system is that it’s much faster than typical laser removal, and patients tend to only need 3-6 treatments, depending on hair thickness, areas treated, and hair growth cycle.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is precise, fast and predictable. The laser targets dark coarse hair with precision, leaving the surrounding skin untouched and unharmed, while eliminating unwanted hair. The CoolGlide treatment offered at the Medical Spa of Baton Rouge takes far less time than typical hair removal treatments. The concentrated light is quickly sent to the skin in a fraction of a second, and treats multiple hair follicles at once.

Overtime, research has proven that this procedure is an effective, permanent tool for removing unwanted hair after the recommended number of sessions.

Laser Hair Removal Is Also An Effective Treatment Method For Ingrown Hairs

Ingrown hairs are hairs that have curled back into the skin instead of rising up. They typically produce raised, red bumps that resemble a pimple. With laser hair removal, you can permanently eliminate problem areas that produce countless ingrown hairs.

Laser hair removal also saves you time and money in the long run. You save time by not having to wax, shave or tweeze every day. You’ll also save money on razors, creams and waxing treatments. Since laser hair removal is a fairly permanent solution, you may only need a touch-up once or twice a year.
