BODY HAIR REMOVAL


BODY HAIR

Shaving at home, and waxing over and over is time consuming and expensive! Shaving costs approximately $10,000 over a lifetime and 131 minutes every month. Each person uses 7,848 gallons of water per year to shave. Waxing costs approximately $15,ooo over 20 years and is quite consuming having treatments every 6 weeks year after year. 

With Xeo® exceptional technology, we can treat your whole body including lips, chin, legs, bikini, arms, chest and back. Our treatments are effective regardless of skin color (fair or tanned) or hair type (fine to coarse). Both men and women can enjoy long-lasting hair removal in minimal time. 

We utilize two different methods for hair removal we'll identify which is right for you at your consultation.

Cutera CoolGlide®

  • The CoolGlide® is the best laser hair removal system on the market for all skin types and tones, from light to dark, including tanned patients. Its unique design, longer wavelength, and innovative cooling design, allow extremely effective, safe, and permanent results.
  • The CoolGlide® can remove hair from all parts of the body including the face, legs, arms, underarms, and back.  It can also treat sensitive areas like the chest, nipples, and bikini line.
  • 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.  No local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required; however, some patients may prefer to use a topical anesthetic when sensitive areas are treated.
  • 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.  Interestingly, not all hairs are actively growing at the same time and actually go through three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting.  CoolGlide treatments work by disabling the hair that is principally 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.
  • 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.
  • Following the treatment, you can return to your normal activities right away, but some redness may occur.  The use of sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun.  In addition, your physician may recommend that you use a specially formulated skin care product line or prescribe a skin care regimen especially formulated for your skin type. 
  • 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. 
  • The big benefit is that shaving, waxing, and depilatory creams are all temporary methods which must be repeated on a frequent basis.  The CoolGlide offers permanent hair reduction for lasting results. 
  • How does the CoolGlide 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 effectively treats an area in just seconds that would take over an hour with electrolysis.
  • Using the latest technology in laser hair removal, the CoolGlide can rapidly treat large areas without the limitations of older technologies.  The CoolGlide longer wavelength allows it to be used safely and effectively on patients with light or dark skin as well as tanned skin.  Unlike other systems, the CoolGlide can treat the fine hair on a woman’s upper lip just as easily and effectively as the coarse hair on a man’s back.  The cooled handpiece increases patient comfort and minimizes the adverse skin reaction commonly seen with other lasers.

ProWave Hair Removal

  • The ProWave hair removal system delivers a specially tailored light source for permanent hair reduction.  Cutera’s newest hair removal innovation provides treatment for a wide range of skin types.  An additional patient benefit is the ability of the handpiece to treat large areas such as women’s legs and men’s backs – quickly and safely.
  • ProWave can remove hair from all parts of the body including the face, legs, arms, underarms, and back.  It can also treat sensitive areas like the chest, nipples, and bikini line.
