Cool Glide Laser Hair Removal (not an IPL)

The CoolGlide™ laser was the first 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser cleared by the FDA to permanently reduce hair in patients of all skin types, including those who are tanned and patients who suffer from razor bumps and ingrowns. While some technologies require suspending treatment sessions during the summer, the CoolGlide laser may be used year-round.

The Cutera CoolGlide™ laser is a non-ablative light therapy device specifically designed to eliminate undesired hair from all parts of the body. In less than one second, a long-pulsed light through an actively-cooled hand piece is disables unwanted pigmented hair follicles, thus impairing their growth and providing long lasting hairless results.

Some of the hair which was in the treated follicles is wiped off immediately after treatment, and the rest is shed over the next 2-3 weeks. Because the Cutera CoolGlide™ laser can treat dozens of hairs with each pulse, it is possible to treat larger areas such as the back, legs, arms and underarms, as well as sensitive areas like the chest, nipples, and bikini line. The Cutera CoolGlide™ laser can be used just about anywhere on the body, and requires no anesthesia or other treatments. Even sensitive areas such as the nipples, upper lip and bikini line can be treated easily and with minimal discomfort. The system's unique design allows us to customize treatment according to your hair and skin color, hair texture, and location on the body. Cutera CoolGlide™ laser treatment is a safe, fast, gentle and effective method for hair removal.
