Remove Unwanted Hair, Spider Veins and Telangiactasias with Lasers by Kathy Anne Resasco

Are you tired of continually shaving, plucking or waxing unwanted hair? Are you tired of some of the painful side-effects that these time consuming tasks cause, like ingrown hairs around the bikini line, unsightly facial hairs or rough stubble growth that feels like sandpaper?

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. Are you tired of having small broken capillaries on your face ruin the smoothness of your complexion?

Are you tired of having unsightly spider veins ruin those otherwise great pair of legs? Now, there is simple, safe and highly effective treatment that takes care of all these cosmetic beauty needs and it's called the CoolGlide Laser treatment system. By delivering light energy to hundreds of hair follicles at a time, the CoolGlide Lasers effectively treat an area in just seconds that would normally take electrolysis to treat in over an hour. The CoolGlide and the CoolGlide Excel are the best laser hair removal systems on the market for all skin tones, from light to dark, including tanned. Their unique design, longer wavelength and innovative cooling design allow extremely effective, safe and permanent results.

A unique feature of CoolGlide Lasers is that they can be used on fine dark hair in addition to coarse hair. CoolGlide Lasers can remove hair from all parts of the body including the face, legs, arms, underarms and back. They are particularly effective in removing extra hair growth on the back and arms in men and they can also treat sensitive areas like the chest, nipples and bikini line. 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 anesthesia or pain medication is typically required but the cooling action of the CoolGlide acts to cool the skin so the effects of the laser are lessened.

Most areas require 3-6 treatments, but the number of CoolGlide Laser treatments you may require for optimal long-term benefits depends on various factors such as your hair's thickness, the area treated and your hair's growth cycle. Interestingly, not all hairs are actively growing at the same time, but actually go through three distinct phases: growth, regression and resting. CoolGlide Lasers 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.

Immediately following your CoolGlide Laser treatment, the area may appear a bit red and swollen. Around 3-7 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. In-between treatments you should not wax or pluck your hair, but you can shave.

Following the treatment, you can return to your normal activities right away. The use of sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun. As always, it's a good idea to limit your sun exposure. Slight reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to a sunburn may occur in some patients. 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.

CoolGlide Laser Systems can also be used for getting rid of unsightly spider veins on the legs, thighs, ankles and other sensitive areas and can also be used for removing Telangiactasias, small red, broken capillaries at the surface of the skin on the cheeks, nose and chin. If you have varicose veins, this treatment is not for you and you need to consult a vascular expert since varicose veins are a more serious condition. Cool Glide Lasers deliver pulses of light energy which cause the blood within the smaller veins to coagulate, eventually causing the veins to collapse and eventually disappear. Number of treatments depend on the number, thickness and color of the veins.
