The Cutera CoolGlide Difference
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. It 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 treatments feel like?
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 anaesthesia or pain medication is typically required however, some patients may prefer to use a topical anaesthetic when sensitive areas are treated.
How many treatments will I need?
Most areas require 3 -6 treatments. This depends on multiple factors like hair thickness, the area treated and your hair’s growth cycle. CoolGlide treatments work by disabling the hair thats 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.
What are the possible side effects?
Immediately following the treatment the area may appear a bit red and swollen. This typically last for several hours or less. Sun screen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun.
Why choose Coolglide over other laser hair removal systems?
The CoolGlide can rapidly treat large areas without the limitations of older technologies. The CoolGlide longer wave length allows it to be used safely and effectively on patients with light or dark skin as well as tanned skin. Unlike other systems, the CoolGlide can treat the fine hair on the woman’s upper lip just as easily and effectively as the coarse hair on a man’s back. The cooled hand piece increases patient comfort and minimizes the adverse skin reaction commonly seen with other lasers.
