Get Ready for Bikini Season with Laser Hair Removal

laser-hair-removal-bikini-season-san-diego

It’s the perfect San Diego beach day. The sun is shining and there isn’t a cloud in the sky. Plus, your in-laws just cancelled brunch, which means your schedule is totally clear. As you start packing your beach bag and putting on your bikini, you look down and notice a big, ugly problem: The aftermath of yesterday’s trip to the waxing salon. Your skin is tender, swollen and red in places you’d rather not discuss. 

At Siti Med Spa, we understand that unwanted hair can be a serious confidence killer – especially during bikini season. Razor burn, stubble, ingrown hairs and sensitive skin from waxing aren’t much better. Wouldn’t it be nice if there were a permanent solution to reduce unwanted hair from all parts of your body?

Say hello to smooth, sexy skin! We offer the best laser hair removal system on the market – the Cutera CoolGlide. It can permanently reduce unwanted hair anywhere on your body safely and effectively. Unlike other hair removal lasers that work best on patients with lighter skin and darker hair, Cutera CoolGlide is successful at banishing body hair on men and women with all skin types. Even those with a suntan!

What to expect from your Cutera CoolGlide treatment

When you arrive at Siti Med Spa, we’ll first clean your skin at the treatment area. Then, a thin layer of clear gel will be applied to help the CoolGlide handpiece move smoothly across your skin. Finally, we’ll pre-cool your skin to prevent epidermal damage and ensure the laser hair removal process is as comfortable as possible. 

As the name suggests, the Cutera Coolglide cools and soothes as it glides along your skin. For this reason, most patients don’t require local anesthesia or pain medication prior to treatment. However, if you have particularly sensitive skin, we’re happy to apply a topical anesthetic at your request.

Three to seven days after your CoolGlide treatment, you may notice what appears to be re-growth of hair. Don’t panic! What you’re actually seeing are the powerful effects of the Cutera CoolGlide system working. Most of these hairs are being shed as a result of your treatment and are not, in fact, growing back. 

You can shave in between CoolGlide treatments, but we advise you not to wax or pluck. And, since we know you’ll be rocking your bikini at the beach this summer, don’t forget to apply sunscreen to any treated areas exposed to the sun.

How many treatments will I need?

With Cutera CoolGlide, most patients require three to six treatments to see the results they’re looking for. However, this depends on a number of factors including hair thickness, skin tone, the treatment area, and your hair’s growth cycle. Since CoolGlide works by zapping hair that’s in the active growth phase at the time of treatment, additional sessions are necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.
