Coolglide Laser Hair Removal
The Coolglide is an effective laser for the removal of unwanted hair for all skin types and tones, from light to dark, including tanned skin. The Coolglide can remove hair from all parts of the body including the face, legs, arms and back. It can also treat sensitive areas like the chest, nipples and bikini line. When the pulse of light is delivered, there is a pinching or stinging sensation. Cool air is directed over the treatment area, increasing comfort. A topical anesthetic cream may be applied to more sensitive areas. In order for the laser to be effective, the hair follicles must contain color and, therefore, blond and red hair does not respond well to the treatment. No laser can treat white or gray hair. Because hair grows in phases and only actively growing hair will respond to the laser, a series of treatments will be needed. Treatment sessions are usually spaced four to eight weeks apart to compensate for this growth cycle. Between treatments you may shave the remaining hairs. The laser delivers light energy to hundreds of hairs at a time, making this method the most rapid and effective for hair removal.
