What Afterglow can do for unwanted hair

Sciton BBL : Virtually Painless Laser Hair Removal at the Speed of Light.

Laser hair removal continues to be ranked one of the top five minimally invasive cosmetic procedures in Canada. Now, using a breakthrough system, Afterglow can offer you virtually pain-free, safer, faster, more efficient hair removal treatments achieving 80% clearance of hair within six treatment sessions.

Sciton BBL laser treatment has achieved permanent hair reduction for thousands of patients worldwide, safely and successfully since it was cleared by the FDA in 2005.

This breakthrough technology has excellent clinical results and can be used safely on all skin types.

The treatment works by safely and gently heating the dermis to a temperature that damages the hair follicle in a precise, controlled manner. The hair follicle is selectively targeted by the beam of light emitted by the laser. "Damaging" the hair follicle prevents re-growth of hair without injuring the surrounding skin.

An average of 6-8 treatments is required to achieve the most desirable results, although results will be seen after the first treatment.

The sliding motion of the hand piece coupled with the energy delivered by the laser feels like a warm massage, according to patients.

Cutera (coolglide)/ Nd:YAG laser for dark skin types.

The Cutera CoolGlide is the best laser hair removal system on the market for all skin types and tones, from light to dark, including tanned patients. Its unique design, longer wavelength, and innovative cooling design, allow extremely effective, safe and permanent results.

Using the latest technology in laser hair removal, the CoolGlide can rapidly treat large areas without the limitations of older technologies. The CoolGlide longer wavelength allows it to be used safely and effectively on patients with light or dark skin as well as tanned skin. Unlike other system, the CoolGlide can treat the fine hair on a man's back. The cooled handpiece increases patient comfort and minimizes the adverse skin reaction commonly seen with other lasers.

What areas can be treated with the CoolGlide?

As the name implies, the CoolGlide handpiece cools and soothes as it glides along your skin. When the pulse of light is delivered, some patients experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. No local anaesthesia or pain medication is typically required; however, some patients may prefer to use a topical aesthetic when sensitive areas are treated.
