Cutera CoolGlide® Hair Removal

Q: Why should I choose Cutera CoolGlide® over other laser hair removal systems?

A: Cutera CoolGlide® can rapidly treat large areas without the limitations of older technologies. The longer wavelength allows it to be used safely and effectively on people with light or dark skin as well as tanned skin. Unlike other systems, the Cutera CoolGlide® can treat the fine hair on a woman’s upper lip just as easily and effectively as the course hair on a man’s back. The cooled handpiece increases your comfort and minimizes the adverse skin reaction commonly seen with other lasers.

Q: What areas can be treated with Cutera CoolGlide® Laser Hair Removal?

A: All parts of the body can be treated including the face, legs, arms, underarms and back. It can also treat sensitive areas like the chest, nipples and bikini line.

Q: How many treatments will I need?

A: Most areas require 3 to 6 treatments, but the number of treatments required will depend on multiple factors, such as:

  • Hair thickness
  • Area treated
  • Your hair’s growth cycle
  • Q: How does Cutera CoolGlide® Laser Hair Removal work?

    A: Cutera CoolGlide® disables the hair that is 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 the hair follicles in a given area.

    Q: What are the possible side effects of Cutera CoolGlide® Laser Hair Removal?

    A: The most common noticed side effect is reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to sunburn. These effects typically last for several hours or less.

    Cutera CoolGlide® Vein Therapy

    Q: Why should I choose Cutera CoolGlide® Vein Therapy?

    A: Cutera CoolGlide® Vein Therapy combines the ideal laser wavelength with the most flexible parameters to deliver a superior vascular laser system. It treats a broad range of vessels from tiny spider veins to deep blue veticular veins quickly, safely and effectively.

    Q: Who can be treated with the Cutera CoolGlide®?

    A: People of all skin tones can be treated with Cutera CoolGlide® Vein Therapy

    Q: How does Cutera CoolGlide® Vein Therapy work?

    A: The Cutera CoolGlide® system delivers pulses of light energy which cause the blood within the vein to coagulate. This eventually destroys the vessel which is later reabsorbed by your body. Blood flow will then be redirected to veins deeper below your skin’s surface, where it should be.

    Q: What types of veins can be treated?

    A: Small facial veins (or telangiectasia) can be treated quickly without bruising or complication. Spider veins and large blue leg veins can also be treated with excellent results. Knotty varicose veins are not good candidates.

    Q: What are the possible side effects of Cutera CoolGlide® Vein Therapy?

    A: Slight reddening and local swelling of the skin are the most commonly noticed side effects. These effects typically last for less than 24 hours.

    Q: When will I see results?

    A: Most people find that the majority of the treated veins have shown significant improvement within two to six weeks of treatment. However, your final results may not be apparent for several months. Over time, it is possible for new veins to appear, but these too can be removed with the Cutera CoolGlide®.
