ELECTROLYSIS and hair removal

Go Back

Laser hair removal is performed by targeting the hair follicle with an intense pulsating beam of light to destroy it. Laser hair removal is a simple, safe and highly effective procedure, and is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures.

IPL PERMANENT HAIR REDUCTION

Electrolysis is the only hair removal method recognized as permanent by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Unlike Laser or IPL hair removal, Electrolysis works on all skin tones and hair colors. Electrolysis permanently destroys the growth cells of the hair follicle, preventing treated hairs from ever growing back. We can treat nearly all facial and body parts including eyebrows, chin, upper and lower lip, jaw line, sides of the face, breasts, underarms, abdomen, bikini line, fingers and toes, legs and back.

How often should I schedule electrolysis treatments?

Electrolysis clients might schedule 5 minutes for just a couple of annoying hairs on their chin or they might schedule an hour or longer for appointments treating larger areas like heavy facial growth or legs. The frequency and length of your appointments depends on the size of the area being cleared and the progress of your treatment. Based on a personal and confidential consultation, your electrologist will design a treatment plan that addresses your specific hair removal needs. Please visit electrology.com for more info!

The Cutera 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.

What areas can be treated with the CoolGlide?

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.

What do CoolGlide treatments feel like?

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.

How many treatments will I need?

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.

What happens after the treatment? 

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.
