Following the treatment, you can return to your normal activities right away, but some redness may occur. The use of sunscreen is highly recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun.
The number of treatments in most areas requires 3-6 treatments. However, the number of CoolGlide treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors—hair thickness, the area treated and your hair’s growth cycle. Not all hairs are actively growing at the same time and actually go through three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting. CoolGlide treatments work by disabling the hair that is principally in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments may be necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.
After treatment, the treated area may be red or swollen. Three to seven days after treatment you may experience what seems to be regrowth of hair. 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.
The Cutera CoolGlide treats a broad range of vessels from tiny spider veins to deep blue reticular veins quickly, safely, and effectively. These veins can be removed from all parts of the body; Patients with dark, light or tanned skin can experience outstanding results with minimal bruising or blistering. This laser features a unique design and long wavelength that allows treatment of patients of all skin tones. The Cutera treatment requires no painful injections, with results visible within one to two treatments!
In the quest for the least- invasive technology that produces the most youthful-looking skin with minimal recovery time, the photofacial is, literally, untouchable. Photofacials are performed with a handheld device producing precisely timed sequences of intense pulsed light (IPL). The light is passed over the skin to simultaneously heat the skin’s inner layers while simultaneously cooling the outer layers.
Unlike cosmetic skin care treatments that require significant healing time, Photofacials gently penetrate the skin to destroy blood vessels and brown pigment that are the cause of uneven skin tone. The light penetrates through the skin and is absorbed by the abnormally dilated vessels. The heat impairs the vessel, and the body begins to filter them out naturally. This facial is non-ablative, which means that it works without harming the surface of your skin as a means to improve its appearance. Instead, the laser helps to bring the uneven pigments to the surface of the skin, allowing them to flake off entirely, or be absorbed by the body.
This treatment has been successful in the treatment of Rosacea, flushing, sun spots, age spots, skin texture, and photo aging. The laser has also been known to improve mild acne scars, reduce large pores, correct dark circles around the eyes, and reduce fine lines. Expect to see a decrease in overall redness, broken capillaries, and flushing as well!
The main attraction of this fantastic treatment is that there is zero recovery time! Our clients return to work and other regular activities within the same day of treatment. Call (773) 394-0000 to schedule a free skin consultation, and to find out whether or not a photo facial is best for you!
