There are several different methods of hair removal that include shaving, waxing, threading, sugaring, epilation, depilation, electrolysis, and laser hair removal. Some of these methods can be performed at home while others require a visit to the salon or med spa for treatment by a licensed professional. It has been shown that the most effective and most permanent means of hair removal and reduction comes from laser hair removal. Laser hair removal has vast benefits to other methods of hair removal. Namely, its longevity makes it most preferable over other methods.
Laser hair removal works by targeting the melanin (pigment) in the hair follicle, and destroying the entire follicle with the laser beam. At the K-Spa Medical Skin Spa, we are proud to offer the award winning Cutera Cool Glide laser hair removal system to our patients. This system utilizes 1064 Nd:YAG technology, for permanent hair reduction that is safe on all skin types. Many other laser hair removal systems can only be used to treat lighter skin tones or darker skin tones, but not both. The Cutera Cool Glide laser was the first system cleared to treat a multitude of skin types, which was a huge breakthrough in laser technology. With the Cool Glide system, we are able to treat a multitude of ethnicities and skin types.
The Cutera Cool Glide laser hair removal system is comfortable and quick. It has a special cooling device built in to the tip of the laser to help protect the patient’s skin during treatment. For best results, a series of six treatments is recommended in order to achieve the maximum amount of permanent hair reduction. I have been personally amazed to see that in many cases, significant results are achieved after just a few treatments. We are able to treat all areas of the body with this laser which is so valuable to patients who don’t have the time to shave or wax. As well, patients do not have to worry about irritation from shaving or waxing (and other methods of hair removal), such as ingrown hairs and folliculitis, after undergoing laser hair removal.
Our patients have been so pleased with the effectiveness of the laser, and the comfort of the laser compared to many other laser hair removal systems. Laser hair removal can truly be life changing as patients have a permanent solution to unwanted facial and body hair, and do not have to worry about constantly shaving or waxing anymore.
