How long will a treatment session take?
Laser treatment varies depending on the size and extent of the area being treated.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Laser hair removal effectively slows and reduces hair growth by 90% but doesn't guarantee permanent hair removal. It typically takes several laser hair removal treatments to provide an extended hair-free period. Periodic maintenance treatments might be needed as well.
Is treatment painful?
When the pulse of light is delivered, some patients experience a mild tingling 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 are needed before I see results?
Most areas require 3-6 treatments. However, the number of Epilia RF treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors; hair thickness, the area treated and your hair's growth cycle.
What is the recovery period following a treatment?
Immediately following your treatment, the area may appear a bit red and swollen but you will be able to return to your normal activities immediately. After 3-7 days, you may experience what seems to be ‘regrowth’ of hair but 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.
What are the possible side effects and unwanted risks?
The most commonly noticed side effects are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to sunburn. These effects typically last for several hours or less. In extremely rare instances, blistering may occur.
Can people with different skin tones/colours be treated with the Cutera Coolglide Laser?
Yes, by controlling dual energy, the Epilia RF is safe for all skin and hair types.
