Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What areas can be treated with Cutera CoolGlide®?

A: The Cutera CoolGlide® can remove hair from all parts of the body including the face, legs, arms, underarms, and back. It can also treat sensitive areas like the chest, nipples, and bikini line.

Q: What do Cutera CoolGlide® treatments feel like?

A: As the name implies, the Cutera 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 anesthesia or pain medication is typically required; however, some patients may prefer to use a topical anesthetic when sensitive areas are treated.

Q: How many treatments will I need?

A: Most areas require 3-6 treatments. However, the number of Cutera CoolGlide® treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors – hair thickness, the area treated and your hair’s growth cycle. Interestingly, not all hairs are actively growing at the same time and actually go through three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting. Cutera CoolGlide® treatments work by disabling the hair that is principally in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments may be necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.

Q: What happens after the treatment?

A: Immediately following your Cutera CoolGlide® treatment, the area may appear a bit red and swollen. Three to seven days after treatment you may experience what seems to be regrowth of hair. Actually, 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.

Q: Are there any restrictions on my activity after treatment?

A: Following the treatment, you can return to your normal activities right away, but some redness may occur. The use of sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun. In addition, 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.

Q: What are the possible side effects?

A: Although patients experience few side effects, the most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to a sunburn. These effects typically last for several hours or less. In rare instances, blistering may occur. Consult with your medical professional for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.

Q: How does the Cutera CoolGlide® compare with other hair removal methods?

A: Shaving, waxing, and depilatory creams are all temporary methods which must be repeated on a frequent basis. The Cutera CoolGlide® offers permanent hair reduction for lasting results.

Q: How does the Cutera CoolGlide® compare with electrolysis?

A: Electrolysis is a tedious, invasive, and painful process that involves inserting a needle into each individual hair follicle and delivering an electrical charge to them one at a time. Electrolysis often requires years of treatments at regular intervals. By delivering light energy to hundreds of hair follicles at a time, the Cutera CoolGlide® effectively treats an area in just seconds that would take over an hour with electrolysis.

Q: Why choose Cutera CoolGlide® over other laser hair removal systems?

A: Using the latest technology in laser hair removal, the Cutera CoolGlide® can rapidly treat large areas without the limitations of older technologies. The Cutera 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 systems, the Cutera CoolGlide® can treat the fine hair on a woman’s upper lip just as easily and effectively as the coarse hair on a man’s back. The cooled handpiece increases patient comfort and minimizes the adverse skin reaction commonly seen with other lasers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How does Cutera Laser Vein Therapy work?

A: The Cutera Laser delivers pulses of light energy which cause the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel which is later reabsorbed by your body. Blood flow will then be redirected to veins deeper below your skin’s surface, where it should be.

Q: Who can be treated with the Cutera Laser?

A: The Cutera Laser features a unique design and long wavelength that allows treatment of patients of all skin tones. Your physician will advise you if Cutera Laser Vein Therapy is right for you.

Q: What types of veins can be treated?

A: The Cutera Laser can remove unsightly veins from all parts of the body. Small, facial veins (or “telangiectasia”) can be treated quickly without bruising or complication. Spider veins and large blue leg veins can also be treated with excellent results. Knotty varicose veins are not good candidates. A careful evaluation with your physician will help you determine which vessels can be treated and the best course of treatment.

Q: How does this compare to Sclerotherapy?

A: Your doctor will advise you on the best course of action, but many physicians and patients prefer Cutera Laser Vein Therapy because there are no painful injections.

Q: What about blood blisters and port wine stains?

A: Blood blisters or “hemangiomas” respond very well to Cutera Laser treatment, usually with just one session. Patients with port wine stains and other vascular lesions who had given up on finding a solution have been overwhelmed by the success of their Cutera Laser vascular treatments. Consult your physician for a thorough evaluation.

Q: How many treatments will I need?

A: Often, patients find that one or two treatments are sufficient. However, the number of treatments necessary depends on the number, color, and size of the vessels being treated. Since individual results vary, ask your medical professional about your specific condition.

Q: Do the treatments hurt?

A: Most patients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the handpiece. Although no local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required, many patients opt to use a topical anesthetic prior to treatment. Following the treatment, the pain is minimal to nonexistent.

Q: What happens after the treatment?

A: Following your treatment, some redness or bruising may occur. When larger veins are treated, a tan or brownish pigment may persist for a few weeks or months following treatment. Patients who have leg vein treatments may be advised to wear support hose for a short period of time.

Q: What are the possible side effects?

A: Although many patients report few if any side effects, those most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin. These effects typically last for less than 24 hours. Some patients may experience bruising and, in rare instances, blistering may occur. Consult with your medical professional for complete information about the benefits and risks of treatment.

Q: Are there any restrictions on my activity after treatment?

A: Patients generally resume most normal activities immediately. However, it is recommended that you avoid vigorous activities such as strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours after treatment. The use of sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun. As always, it is a good idea to limit your sun exposure.

Q: When will I see results?

A: Most patients find that the majority of the treated veins have shown significant improvement within two to six weeks of treatment. However, your final results may not be apparent for several months. Over time, it is possible for new veins to appear, but these too can be removed with the Cutera Laser.
