What Type of Laser Hair Removal Is Right For Your Skin Type?

Make your unwanted facial and body hair a thing of the past! We’ve detailed why the Cutera CoolGlide system is the perfect Laser Hair Removal System for any skin type. Read below to learn more about why the Cutera CoolGlide is right for you!

Laser Hair Removal: What Are Your Options?

Unlike most hair removal treatments, the Cutera CoolGlide uses wide beams to treat multiple hairs at once. Since the system is designed to treat several hairs at once, its possible to treat larger areas, including the arms, legs, face, back and shoulders. The CoolGlide tool can be applied to almost any area of the body, no anesthesia needed. Sensitive areas of the body, such as the bikini line, upper lip, and chest are easily treated with minimal discomfort.

The Cutera CoolGlide offers a safe, gentle, and effective treatment for unwanted hair, anywhere on the body! After just a few treatments you’ll enjoy smooth, silky skin.

What Is Cutera CoolGlide?

Cutera CoolGlide is a non-invasive light therapy system, designed to remove undesired hair from the body. The CoolGlide produces pulses of intense, concentrated through small hand pieces and gently applied. The energy is transmitted through the skin, directly to the hair follicle.  Once the energy is absorbed by the hair follicle, producing selective damage to the root while also protecting the pores and structure of the skin.

The energy from the CoolGlide tool is only active for a fraction of a second. The system is designed to transfer just enough energy to target the hair follicle without transferring excessive heat to the surrounding skin. The surface of your skin is protected by a built-in cooling system, which protects and soothes your skin as unwanted hair is removed.

What To Expect From Treatment

In most cases, patients experience optimal results after three to six treatments. The number of treatments that you may need depends on hair thickness, the treatment site, and your hair’s growth cycle. Hair cycles through three distinct phases: growth, regression and resting. CoolGlide disables hair in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments may be necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.
