Generally, 4-8 treatments are required. However, the number of treatments may vary depending on multiple factors such as the area being treated, hair thickness and your hair growth cycle. It is important to understand, that hair growth is divided into three different stages, growth, regression and resting. The Cutera CoolGlide treatment removes all hair in the active growth stage. However, since other hair will enter the growth stage at different times, additional treatments are scheduled to disable all hair follicles in the area for optimum and long-lasting results.
Immediately after the treatment you can expect the treated area to be slightly red and may even swell. This is temporay. After 3 to 7 days, you may also experience hair re-growth but most will actually be in the shedding process. Therefore, do not wax or tweeze your hair at this stage, shaving is permissible.
You can start your normal routine and daily activities right away. However, it is advisable to keep the area treated directly out of the sun and use a SPF 30 sunscreen on the treated area when going out in the sun. It is also best to avoid any hot showers or baths, steam rooms, Jacuzzis or saunas directly after the treatment for 24-72 hrs to avoid over irritating the area. Aloe Vera can be applied to the area in aid of cooling. In addition to this, you should also use our specially formulated skin care products and follow the skin care regime as recommended by our qualified Nurse.
The most common ones include skin redness and swelling. However, these effects only last for a few hours. Blistering is another side effect, but that happens very rarely.
It is advisable to consult your medical professional before you undergo this treatment.
