Laser Hair Removal – Make Unwanted Hair a Thing of the Past

Margate Laser Hair Removal Center

Laser hair removal is light years ahead of shaving, creams and waxing. It gets to the root of the problem and disrupts the hair growth cycle for long lasting results.

Unlike temporary methods such as shaving, waxing and depilatory creams, CoolGlide lasers are FDA-approved for permanent hair reduction. Read on to learn more about the technology behind this popular service.

CoolGlide Technology

With the Cutera CoolGlide, we can make unwanted hair a thing of the past for both men and women. This 21st century laser technology is FDA cleared for permanent hair reduction, and it can treat all skin colors – from light to dark, including tanned skin.

Unlike shaving, waxing and depilatory creams, which are temporary solutions that must be repeated on a regular basis, CoolGlide delivers light energy to hundreds of hair follicles at one time, permanently eliminating them. In just a few minutes, CoolGlide can treat an area that would take over an hour with electrolysis.

CoolGlide Vantage uses a long pulse, 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser for safe, effective treatment on all skin types. Patented PowerFlex technology allows for the clinician to control fluence, pulse width and repetition rate for uncompromising efficacy. It also features bulk cooling for comfort and epidermal protection. This unique combination of features enables CoolGlide to achieve superior results for even the most challenging skin types.

In addition to laser hair removal, the CoolGlide laser can be used for facial and leg veins as well. These are dilated blood vessels that can range from tiny spider veins to large, blue varicose veins. Laser Genesis gentle skin rejuvenation is another popular application for the CoolGlide system, and this procedure has been shown to improve skin texture and tone, reduce pore size and treat wrinkles.

Permanent Results

Unlike the outdated methods of shaving, waxing and creams that only last for a short period of time, laser hair removal delivers long-lasting results. The procedure uses a high-energy light beam to target the pigment in your hair and destroy the hair follicles, preventing them from producing future hair growth.

Depending on your pain threshold, you may experience a slight discomfort during the treatment. Many patients describe it as feeling like a rubber band snapping against your skin, but the cooling mechanism of the laser device helps to make the sensation manageable. Your provider will customize the settings to suit your skin type and hair color.

To achieve optimal results, you will need to undergo a series of treatment sessions. The number of treatments varies by individual and body area, but you can expect to achieve permanent hair reduction after a full course of six treatment sessions.

You should avoid removing the hair from the treated area, including plucking and using waxing lotions, between treatments. Instead, trim or shave the area before each session to keep the hair at a minimal length.

Safety

Margate Laser Hair Removal Center treatments are FDA-approved for permanent hair reduction, meaning that the majority of your unwanted hair follicles will die and not be able to grow back. However, some follicles do regenerate over time, so it’s important to come in for a series of six treatments to fully see the results. Before you begin a laser treatment regimen, it’s important to avoid waxing or plucking the hair follicles or using any other method of removing the hair from the root. This can disrupt the hair development cycle, making your results less effective. It’s also crucial to not have an active sun tan or use any products that cause photosensitivity before your appointment.
