Men and women share a common cosmetic issue - Unwanted hair. Removing hair can be a painful undertaking. Shaving barely removes the hair and leaves behind irritating bumps, and the hair starts to reappear by the next day. Waxing involves ripping the hair out of the follicle, and this can be extremely uncomfortable, especially in more delicate areas. At Remedy Hair Restoration & Medical Spa, we offer men and women laser hair removal that is comfortable and effective.
Laser hair removal is unique because it does not pull the hair or cut it. Rather, laser hair removal destroys the hair all the way down to the root. The hair simply falls out of the follicle.
Our Venus Versa™ is transforming hair removal by using advanced technology to permanently reduce unwanted hair on the face and body. Each application of the Intense Pulsed Light with SmartPulse™ gets to the deeper layers of the skin to target the pigment and destroy the hair follicle. Real-time cooling keeps skin protected while the SmartPulse™ technology ensures safe and consistent heat distribution. Depending on the size and location of the treatment area, your laser hair removal takes 15 to 60 minutes. Because the hair is at various stages of growth, you may need more than one treatment.
The CoolGlide® (1064 Nd:YAG) is the first laser FDA cleared for permanent hair reduction in all skin types, from the very fair skin patients to dark and black skin patients. Now men and women alike are making unwanted facial and body hair a thing of the past - thanks to the Cutera CoolGlide Laser. No more painful waxing, electrolysis or razors! The CoolGlide laser delivers 21st century technology for treatment of this distressing problem. Cleared for permanent hair reduction, the CoolGlide laser can treat men and women of all skin types safely and effectively, year-round. Even patients with a suntan.
The Cutera CoolGlide was designed to be the most outstanding laser hair removal system on the market for all skin types, from light to dark, including tanned patients. Its unique design, longer wavelength, and innovative cooling allow extremely effective, safe and permanent results.
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 6-8 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.
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.
