Most men are quite happy to have an abundance of hair sprouting from various parts of the body, as it is viewed by many as a sign of masculinity. The same cannot be said for women, as they are expected to have smooth, relatively hairless skin.
While it’s unfair, women are generally forced to adopt a cleaning routine that includes shaving the legs, underarms, and the bikini area. It’s a chore that can be painful when nicks and cuts take place. This only gets worse if women decide that waxing is the way to go, as pain is all part and parcel of that treatment. If you have unwanted hair and want it gone for the long haul, CoolGlide laser treatment is definitely the way to go.
All areas can be attended to using this technology, with the hair that is removed staying gone permanently. The obvious benefit of laser hair removal is that you will never have to cry out in pain again when you get nicked by a razor or have your hair yanked out by hot wax. You can have a silky smooth set of legs, underarms, upper lip, and bikini area, with no need to worry yourself with hair growth. How it all works is actually quite straightforward.
You may experience a little stinging sensation when having sensitive areas worked on, but it is more of a minor discomfort than painful. You can request a local anesthetic if you are a little unsure of how it will feel, but that is generally not required.
Depending on the thickness of your hair and the level of growth, you are looking at anywhere from 5-6 treatments to have it removed. Once done, it usually takes about 2 weeks for all hair growth to stop. It is okay to shave during this time, but that is the only other type of treatment you should use. The reason that you will have to go for several treatments is because the hair that is being removed may have another growth cycle coming through underneath.
While the laser can take care of the existing hair, it cannot get a hold of the next growth right away. Following a treatment schedule laid out by a laser treatment specialist will ensure that all unwanted hair is take care of as quickly as possible.
Once the treatment has been completed you may find that your skin is a little irritated and tender. This is perfectly normal, and it’s also nowhere near as severe as what you would get with other types of treatment.
The CoolGlide laser treatment is safe and effective on all skin types, but there are some hair colors that it will not work on. Blonde, white, and certain shades of red hair cannot be treated, simply because the hair does not contain the melanin required to absorb the light from the laser. If you do not have any of those hair colors, your unwanted hair can quickly and effectively be removed using laser treatments.
