What do CoolGlide 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 experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation.
How many treatments will I need?
Most areas require 3-6 treatments. However, the number of CoolGlide treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors - hair thickness, the area treated and your hair's growth cycle.
Which areas can be treated?
- Upper lip, chin, beards, jawline
- Underarms and arms
- Legs and bikini line
- Back and shoulders
- Chest and abdomen
- Nose, ears and neck
How long does the treatment take?
It will depend on the size of the areas to be treated.
How soon will I see results?
You will start seeing results immediately.
How long will the results last?
The results are permanent.
What happens after the treatment?
Immediately following your CoolGlide 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 the possible side effects?
Although patients experience few side effects, the most commonly noticed 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. Consult with your medical professional for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.
Who performs the treatment?
Our laser treatments are carried out by nurses and doctors who have extensive experience in this field and are highly qualified to advise on what is the appropriate course of treatment for you. We do not have any beauticians or technicians only fully trained medical staff.
