Laser Hair Removal for Summer-Proof Skin
Posted by: cnyha on Mar 11, 2011 in news

Eager for warm weather? Can’t wait to show off your glowing summer skin in a sexy swimsuit? If you want that beautiful even-all-over glow, then hair removal is a necessity. The majority of people try waxing, shaving, or plucking before turning to more advanced methods of ridding unwanted hair. If you belong in this majority, you must know the hassles that led you to look elsewhere. Either you don’t have the time, patience, or funds, or you really don’t like the pain of waxing, plucking, or nicking yourself while shaving.

            Fortunately, it’s your lucky day because CNY Healing Arts is currently offering a 50% off deal on laser hair removal! Before taking us up on this super discount, you may want to know some facts on how we perform laser hair removal at our centers. Some frequently asked questions include: 

How long does it take? 

Thanks to the Cutera CoolGlide, light energy is delivered to hundreds of hair follicles at a time; effectively treating an area in just seconds. 

What does it feel like? 

The CoolGlide handpiece cools and soothes as it glides along your skin. Some patients feel a mild pinching or stinging sensation when the pulse of light is delivered. Neither pain meds nor anesthesia are normally required during or after treatment, but some patients may prefer to use a topical anesthetic when treating sensitive areas. 

How many treatments will I need? 

Most areas require 3-6 treatments, depending on the area treated, hair thickness, and you hair’s growth cycle. 

Are there any side effects? 

There are very few side effects. The most common one is a slight reddening and local swelling of the skin (similar to a sunburn) that should only last for several hours or less. Blistering can occur very rarely. You should not wax or pluck your hair between treatments, but it is okay to shave.
