Laser Hair Removal


Men and women alike can now make unwanted facial or body hair a thing of the past. No more painful waxing, electrolysis or razors! The Cool-Glide hair removal system delivers 21st century technology for the treatment of this distressing problem.

What is Cool Glide?

The CoolGlide system presents a revolution in hair removal. Using technology beyond that of other lasers, the CoolGlide can disable hundreds of hair follicles in less than one second, and promises long-lasting results for all skin types. Our CoolGlide hair removal system is cleared for permanent hair reduction. It is a non-invasive laser specifically designed to eliminate undesired hair from all parts of the body. The CoolGlide system generates intense, long pulsed laser light through an actively-cooled hand piece. The laser effectively disables unwanted pigmented hair follicles, thus impairing their growth. The laser's cold hand piece is placed gently on the skin and glides along as pulses of light are delivered from the laser. When the light penetrates the skin, it selectively damages the root of the unwanted hair. The Cool-Glide can remove hair from all parts of the body including the face, legs, arms, underarms, and back, as well as sensitive areas like the chest, nipples, and bikini line.

What about side effects?

Slight reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to a sunburn, may occur in some patients. These effects typically last 24 hours or less. In rare instances, blistering may occur. Consult with Dr M Humayun Mohmand for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment

Does skin color make a difference?

With Cool-Glide's unique design we have the flexibility to treat all skin types. Now even suntanned patients or those with darker pigmentation may be treated. Patients with fair skin respond the best.

How many treatments are required?

The number of treatments you may require for optimal long-term benefits depend on the area you wish to have treated, the hair density and your hair's growth cycle. Your hair grows in cycles and many factors influence its growth. Age, ethnicity, weight, hormones, diet, medication and metabolism all play a part in your hair's location, thickness and resilience.

Are there any restrictions on my activity after treatment?

After your treatment, the area is cleansed and you can return to your normal activities immediately. Your physician may recommend that you use a specially formulated skin care product line or prescribe a skin care regimen especially formulated for your skin type. The use of sun screen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun. As always, it is a good idea to limit your sun exposure.
