Cutera Cool Glide Laser Hair Removal
For Women & Men of All Skin Types and Tones
The Cutera CoolGlide is the best laser hair removal system on the market for all skin types and tones; from light to dark, including tanned patients. Its unique design, longer wavelength, and innovative cooling design, allow extremely effective, safe, and permanent results.
Following the treatment, you can return to your normal activities right away, but some redness may occur. The use of sunscreen is highly recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun.
The number of treatments in most areas requires 3-6 treatments. However, the number of CoolGlide treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors—hair thickness, the area treated and your hair’s growth cycle. Not all hairs are actively growing at the same time and actually go through three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting. CoolGlide treatments work by disabling the hair that is principally 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.
After treatment, the treated area may be red or swollen. Three to seven days after treatment you may experience what seems to be regrowth of hair. Most of these hairs are being shed as a result of your treatment and are not regrowing. Between treatments you should not wax or pluck your hair, but it is permissible to shave.
Please read through the following carefully before booking your next laser hair removal appointment:
Do NOT come in if you are pregnant, nursing, or will be trying to get pregnant during the course of treatment. While no adverse reactions have been confirmed, it’s always best to be safe while you’re expecting!
Do NOT come in if you have had sun exposure or used sunless tanner on the area to be treated for four weeks prior to treatment, or are expecting to be in the sun 4 weeks after your treatment. This could result in hyperpigmentation.
Do NOT thread, wax, bleach, or tweeze the area to be treated at least 4 weeks prior to treatment.
Do NOT take antibiotics 7 to 10 days prior to treatment due to photosensitivity.
DO shave the area to be treated the day of the appointment.
DO take ibuprofen before your treatment if you have a low pain tolerance. The spa also carries numbing cream and will provide it upon request. If requesting numbing, please show up 30 minute prior to your appointment to apply.
