Laser Hair Removal Austin, TX
Our laser hair reduction procedure removes unwanted hair with unsurpassed efficacy and client comfort.
It is said that the average U.S. male spends about 3,360 hours of his life shaving; a woman spends roughly 1,392. Your days are already busy with work, the kids, cooking dinner and walking the dogs; why waste any of your spare time shaving your legs or face?
Cutera’s CoolGlide and ProWave laser hair removal systems can help you regain that time in a fast and virtually painless fashion. The CoolGlide and ProWave are the latest and best laser hair removal technologies on the market. We are able to effectively treat all skin tones and provide patients with effective, safe and more permanent reduction of hair growth.
Traditional hair removal techniques, such as shaving, plucking, electrolysis, waxing and depilatory creams generally provide only temporary relief and can be very irritating to the skin. Laser systems used to reduce hair growth have become the modern gold standard technique for hair removal. The laser emits a gentle beam of light that passes through the skin to the hair follicle where it is absorbed. The laser energy is transformed into heat, which destroys the hair follicle leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. The skin is protected during treatment by a cooling device which also provides increased comfort. Facial areas such as the upper lip and sideburns, bikini area, upper and lower legs, arms, chest, and back may be treated leaving skin smooth, stubble free and without the irritation of ingrown hairs.
Because hair grows in cycles, a minimum of six treatments will be necessary, as the process is most effective on hair during the early, active growth cycle.
What To Expect
Whether you’re a man or a woman, this laser hair removal system works for you. Want to remove hair from your face, legs, bikini area and underarms? The CoolGlide and ProWave laser hair removal devices can make it happen. The laser hair removal system uses a handpiece that cools the area while a pulse of light is delivered onto the skin. The hairs that are found on the area during the laser hair removal treatment are then disabled. Patients will feel a slight snaping sensation during the laser hair removal. The treated area will immediately become slightly red and swollen, and hair may appear to regrow a few days after treatment. This is actually the body shedding the hair.
Patients will typically need three to six laser hair removal treatments, although this depends on the thickness of the hair and the treated area, among other things.
The CoolGlide and ProWave laser hair removal systems are ideal for anyone who values his or her time. Shaving, waxing and depilatory creams are costly and time consuming since they are temporary solutions to hair growth. Other methods like electrolysis are also permanent, but they are painful, tedious and costly.
Our laser hair removal system is painless compared to electrolysis, plus in the time electrolysis takes to remove one hair with a needle, either laser can treat an entire area.
