Laser Hair Removal San Jose

No more painful waxing, electrolysis or razors! Men and women alike can now make unwanted facial or body hair a thing of the past. Our preferred system, the CoolGlide laser hair removal system delivers 21st century technology for the treatment of this distressing problem. FDA has cleared CoolGlide for permanent hair reduction.

How does CoolGlide laser system work?

The CoolGlide system generates intense, long pulsed laser light through an actively cooled handpiece. The laser effectively disables unwanted pigmented hair follicles, thus impairing their growth. The laser's cold hand piece is placed gently on the skin and glides along as pulses of laser light are delivered. When the light penetrates the skin, it selectively damages the root of the pigmented unwanted hair.

Does skin color make a difference?

With CoolGlide's unique design we have the flexibility to treat all skin types. Now even sun-tanned patients or those with darker pigmentation may be treated. Patients with fair skin respond the best.

How many treatments are required?

The number of treatments you may require for optimal long-term benefits depend on the area you wish to have treated, the hair density and your hair's growth cycle. Your hair grows in cycles and many factors influence its growth. Age, ethnicity, weight, hormones, diet, medication and metabolism all play a part in your hair's location, thickness and resilience.

Are there any restrictions after treatment?

You return to normal activities immediately after a treatment. The use of sunscreen is recommended on treated areas exposed to the sun. As always, it is a good idea to limit your sun exposure.
