Laser Hair Removal

Now men and women can make unwanted facial and body hair a thing of the past, thanks to our CoolGlide® Laser System. No more painful waxing, electrolysis or razors! Cleared for permanent hair reduction, CoolGlide lasers can treat men and women of all skin tones safely and effectively. Tan skin is safe with the CoolGlide laser.

Most areas require 3 to 6 treatments, but the number of CoolGlide 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: anagen, catagen, and telogen. The CoolGlide systems work by disabling the hair that is principally in the active growth phase (anagen) 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 hair removal treatment, the area may appear a bit red and swollen. Three to seven days after treatment you may experience what seems to be re-growth of hair. Actually, most of these hairs are being shed as a result of your treatment, and are not re-growing. Between treatments you should not wax, tweeze, or pluck your hairs, only shaving is allowed.
