Laser Hair Removal
How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair-removal technology uses highly concentrated beams of light that target melanin, the darker pigment at the base of your hair follicles. The pigment in your hair follicle absorbs the light and heats and damages the follicle, causing the hair to fall out and hindering hair growth.
Laser hair removal can remove hair from the:
Arms and underarms
The Cutera CoolGlide laser can even remove hair from sensitive areas like the chest, nipples, and bikini line.
The Cutera CoolGlide handpiece cools as it glides along your skin. Some people might notice a mild pinching sensation, but most of them tolerate it. Local anesthesia isn’t necessary, but some patients might opt for a topical anesthetic when treating more sensitive areas.
When can I expect results?
Laser hair removal usually requires more than one treatment for best results. Most people experience noticeable hair loss after 3-7 sessions with 4-6 weeks in between each treatment.
When you obtain the best results depends on your hair and skin type and how your body responds to the laser.
What are the benefits of laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is a highly-anticipated solution for men and women who feel they’re spending excess time shaving unwanted body hair. Laser hair removal can save you the time you’d spend shaving.
Your results can depend on your hair growth cycle, your hair thickness, and the treatment area. Your hair goes through different stages of growth, and not all hairs grow at the same time. For this reason, more than one session is typically necessary for the best outcome.
The Cutera laser has a unique design with longer wavelengths that work on all skin tones and hair colors to provide permanent hair loss. Cutera delivers fast pulses in a fraction of a second and can treat multiple hairs at one time. Treating smaller areas like the upper lip can take less than a minute.
After your treatment, you can return to your normal activities immediately. You might experience mild redness, and your Rejuvenate specialist might recommend using sunscreen in treated areas commonly exposed to the sun.
