Permanently Reduce Unwanted Hair With Our Laser Hair Removal Services
At Skin Renew Laser & Vein Clinic, we use state-of-the-art laser technology to safely, quickly and permanently reduce unwanted hair. Using Cutera’s CoolGlide and ProWave lasers, we are able to offer all of our clients easy, effective treatment, regardless of skin color or the size of the area. Unlike other hair reducing lasers, our ProWave laser can be safely used to treat large areas at once, and our CoolGlide laser is safe for use on every complexion.
What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Cutera’s ProWave and CoolGlide hair removal treatments use light pulses to destroy the hair bulbs in the anagen (growth) cycle. Typically, only about 30% of the hair being treated will be in the anagen cycle at once. Thus, with each treatment, you should see about a 30% hair reduction.
Why Choose Laser Hair Removal?
Unlike electrolysis or other painful and painstaking hair removal options, the Cutera ProWave system is capable of targeting large areas at once. This makes the treatment faster and less tedious for the patient.
Our Cutera CoolGlide system is superior to other treatment systems in that it can be safely used on all skin colors, and includes a handheld cooling piece to soothe the skin during the procedure.
What Will I Need To Do To Prepare For The Treatment?
Because the bulb must be present in the follicle in order to be targeted by the laser, you must not pluck or wax the area before the service. Instead, you will need to shave the area either the day before or the day of your treatment.
What Should I Expect In The Days And Weeks Following A Treatment?
After a treatment, some patients notice a slight reddening and swelling of the treated area, but these side effects typically dissipate within a few hours. Within a week of your treatment, you should notice some shedding, but it’s incredibly important that you do not wax or pluck between your treatments.
Is The Procedure Painful?
The treatment may sting or pinch slightly, but most patients do not find it to be painful.
What Parts Of The Body Can Be Treated?
With the ProWave and CoolGlide Hair Removal systems, we can safely and effectively treat all areas of the body where hair is unwanted. Some popular areas include:
- Upper Lip
However, the lighter the hair pigment, the less effective the treatment.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number of treatments needed will vary from person to person and will depend largely on the area being treated, the thickness of the hair, and the cycle of the hair. Because not all hair is in the anagen phase at once, you will likely need at least three treatments, and each treatment will target different hair bulbs. Our certified laser technicians will recommend that your treatments be anywhere from four to twelve weeks apart, depending on the area.
Will The Results Be Permanent?
Cutera’s Hair Removal systems offer permanent hair reduction (85-100%), and any remaining hair will grow in finer and thinner.
Is The Treatment Safe For All Skin Types?
ProWave Hair Removal is safe for a wide range of skin types, and our CoolGlide system can safely treat every complexion.
