The CoolGlide Laser System can remove hair from all parts of the body including the face, legs, arms, underarms, and back. It can also treat sensitive areas like the chest, nipples, and bikini line.
What do CoolGlide laser treatments feel like?
As the name implies, the CoolGlide handpiece cools and soothes as it glides along your skin. When the pulse of light is delivered, some patients experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. No local anesthesia or pain mediation is typically required; however some patients may prefer to use a topical anesthetic when sensitive areas are treated.
How many treatments will I need?
Most areas require 3-6 treatments, but the number of CoolGlide treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on various factors such as treatment area, thickness and growth cycle of your hair. Interestingly, not all hair grows actively at the same time. Instead, they go through three distinct phase: growth, regression, and resting. CoolGlide systems work by disabling the hair that is principally in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hair 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.
What happens after the treatment?
Immediately following your CoolGlide treatments, the area may appear a bit red and swollen. For the next three to seven days, you may experience what seems to be re-growth of hair where actually, most of the hair is being shed as a result of your treatment and will not be re-growing. Between treatments you should not wax or pluck your hair, but it is permissible to shave.
Are there any restrictions on my activity after treatment?
Following the treatment you can return to your normal activities right away. However, since some redness may occur, you may want to plan your work or social engagement accordingly. The use of sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposure to the sun. As always, it is a good idea to limit your sun exposure. In addition, your physician may recommend that you use a specially formulated skin care product line or prescribe a skin care regimen especially formulated for your skin type.
What are the possible side effects?
Slight reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to a sun burn may occur in some patients. These effects typically last for several hours or less. In rare instances, blistering may occur. Consult with your medical professional for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.
How do CoolGlide lasers compare with Electrolysis?
Electrolysis is a tedious, invasive, and painful process that involves inserting a needle into each individual hair follicle and delivering an electrical charge to them one at a time. Electrolysis often requires years of treatments at regular intervals. By delivering light energy to hundreds of hair follicles at a time. CoolGlide lasers effectively treat an area in just seconds that would take over an hour with electrolysis.
