Laser Hair Removal
Traditional hair removal techniques like shaving, plucking and waxing, provide only temporary relief and may actually stimulate hair growth. Electrolysis often requires years of ongoing treatments.
The CoolGlide Xeo is the best laser hair removal system on the market for all skin tones, from light to dark, including tanned patients. The unique design, longer wavelength, and innovative cooling design allow extremely effective, safe and permanent results.
The CoolGlide can remove hair from all parts of the body including the face, legs, arms, underarms, and back. They can also treat sensitive areas like the chest, nipples, and bikini line.
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 medication is typically required.
Most areas require 4-8 treatments, but the number of CoolGlide Laser treatments you may require for optimal long-term benefits depends on various factors such as your hair's thickness, the area treated, and your hair's growth cycle. Interestingly, not all hairs are actively growing at the same time, but actually go through three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting.
CoolGlide Lasers 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.
Immediately following your CoolGlide Laser treatment, the area may appear a bit red and swollen. Around 3-7 days after treatment you may experience what seems to be regrowth of hair. Actually, most of these hairs are being shed as a result of your treatment, and are not regrowing. In-between treatments you should not wax or pluck your hair, but it is permissible to shave.
Following the treatment, you can return to your normal activities right away. The use of sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun. As always, it is a good idea to limit your sun exposure.
Slight reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to a sunburn 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.
Shaving, waxing, and depilatory creams are all temporary methods which must be repeated on a frequent basis. The CoolGlide Laser offers longer lasting results for your hair removal needs.
