How Does This Treatment Work?

The Cutera CoolGlide® laser and the ProWave™ 770 are non-invasive light therapy systems which have been custom designed to eliminate undesired hair from all parts of the body. The Cutera CoolGlide® laser and the ProWave™ 770 generate pulses of intense, concentrated light which are directed through small, cooled hand pieces which are gently applied to the treatment site.

This energy passes through the skin to the hair follicle, where the energy is absorbed by pigment in the hair and hair follicle, causing selective damage to the hair root while protecting delicate pores and structures of the skin. The energy is pulsed, or “turned on”, for only a fraction of a second. The duration of the pulses is carefully determined so that energy will be absorbed by the hair follicle without transferring excessive heat to the surrounding skin.

Some of the hair which was in the treated follicles is wiped off immediately after treatment, and the rest is shed over the next 2-3 weeks. The hair roots which have been destroyed are reabsorbed by the body. If you have ingrown hairs, they will be reabsorbed by the body and the appearance of the skin will improve greatly over the next few months.

The surface of the skin is protected by built-in cooling systems which help to protect and soothe the skin during treatment of your unwanted hair.

Unlike “hair-by-hair” treatments such as electrolysis, the CoolGlide® and in particular the ProWave™ 770 use wide beams which treats many hairs at once. Because the Cutera CoolGlide® laser and the ProWave™ 770 can treat dozens of hairs with each pulse, it is possible to treat larger areas — for example the back, shoulders, arms, legs and face. The Cutera CoolGlide® laser can be used just about anywhere on the body, and usually requires no anesthesia. Even sensitive areas such as the nipples, upper lip and bikini line can be treated easily and with minimal discomfort.

The ProWave™ 770 is customized for the treatment of large untanned areas like the back and legs. The unique design of these systems allows us to customize treatment, according to your hair and skin colour, hair texture, and location on the body.

Cutera CoolGlide® laser and ProWave™ 770 treatments are a safe, fast, gentle and effective method for hair removal. In just a few treatment sessions using the gentle power of one of these systems, you can greatly improve the appearance of skin where there is unwanted hair.
