What do treatments feel like?

As the name implies, the CoolGlide handpiece cools and soothes as it glides along your skin. When the pulse of light is delivered, some patients feel a mild pinching or stinging sensation. The Prowave handpiece is used on lighter skin tones.  No local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required.

How many treatments are needed?
Most areas require 6-8 treatments. However, the number of treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors; hair thickness, the area treated and your hair's growth cycle. Not all hairs are actively
growing at the same time and actually go through three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting. Our process works by disabling the hair in the active growth phase 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.

What to expect after the treatment?
Immediately following your treatment, the area may appear a bit red and swollen. Three to seven days after treatment you may experience what seems to be regrowth of hair. Actually, most of these hairs are being shed as a result of your treatment and are not regrowing.  Between treatments you should not wax or pluck your hair, but it is permissible to shave.


What are possible side effects?
Although patients experience few side effects, the most common are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to a sunburn. These effects typically last for several hours or less. In rare instances, blistering may occur.


How does the Laser process compare with electrolysis?
Electrolysis is a tedious, invasive, and painful process that involves inserting a needle into each individual hair follicle and delivering an electrical charge to them one at a time. Electrolysis often requires years of treatments at regular intervals. By delivering light energy to hundreds of hair follicles at a time, the CoolGlide or ProWave effectively treat areas in just seconds that would take over an hour with electrolysis.
