The Cutera laser hair removal systems provide permanent results for all skin types and tones, from light to dark, and are extremely safe and effective.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Our unique lasers can remove hair from all parts of the body, including the face, legs, arms, underarms and back. The more sensitive areas can also be treated, such as chest and bikini lines.
What Does The Laser Treatment Feel Like?
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 4-6 treatments. However, the number of treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors, including hair thickness, the area treated and your hair’s growth cycle. Each hair grows at a different rate and goes through three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting. Our laser treatments work by disabling the hair that is in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter the 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 laser hair removal treatment, the area may appear a bit red or swollen. Three to seven days after treatment, you may experience what seems to be regrowth 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.
Are There Any Restrictions On My Activity After Treatment?
Following the treatment, you can return to your normal activities right away, but some redness may occur. The use of sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun.
What Are The Possible Side Effects?
Although patients experience few side effects, the most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to a sunburn. These effects typically last for several hours or less. In rare instances, blistering may occur.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Compare To Other Hair Removal Methods?
Shaving, waxing, and depilatory creams are all temporary methods which must be repeated on a frequent basis. Our laser hair removal treatments offer permanent hair reduction for lasting results.
