Laser hair removal is a safe and effective way to reduce and potentially eliminate unwanted hair. Here at DermaFashion Medical Spa, we use the Cutera coolglide laser system to enhance patient comfort and deliver effective treatments for both men and woman. Laser hair removal technology can be used for essentially all areas of the body and is safe for all skin tones, even for patients with a tan!
How does it work?
Our Cutera laser technology targets patients hair follicles and delivers a pulse of light within the specified area. This pulse of light is absorbed by melanin found within the hair and destroys the follicles in which the hair grows. With continuous treatments, hair follicles eventually become smaller and smaller, causing hair growth to become less dense and finer. Because the laser light targets the melanin in the hair, darker and coarser hair tend to have better results from laser hair removal. Schedule a free consultation to determine if laser hair removal is a viable option for you.

What you can expect:
before starting laser hair removal treatments, you must not wax, tweeze, epilate, thread, or do any other type of hair removal in which the follicle is eradicated, for at least four weeks (shaving is allowed). The night before your appointment, please shave the area in which your laser treatment is to be done.
Upon arrival, a nurse will review your medical chart and answer any questions you may have. After verifying area to be treated, the nurse may clean the area with a baby wipe and apply a cooling gel on the skin. The laser treatment may then begin.
Cutera’s laser hand piece has a cooling mechanism attached to it so that the patient feels cool and numb before a pulse of light is delivered. This enhances patient comfort as the nurse glides the laser along the patients skin. Some patients experience a slight stinging or pinching sensation, however topical anesthetic is typically not required.
Following treatment, the area may appear red or swollen, but should disappear approximately 30 minutes later. For a few days it may appear that the hair is still growing, when in fact the hair is just being shed from the following laser therapy. The results from the treatment should appear after about a week, with most areas requiring 3-6 treatments depending on hair type and color.
