Laser Hair Removal

Manhattan, New York City

Unwanted facial or body hair is quickly becoming a thing of the past with our laser hair removal techniques. Dr. Lefkovits uses the CoolGlide laser hair removal system to deliver twenty-first century technology for our patients.

The CoolGlide Laser Procedure
CoolGlide is a non-invasive laser specifically designed to eliminate undesired hair from all parts of the body. Using technology beyond that of other lasers, the CoolGlide can disable hundreds of follicles, in less than 1 second, and assures long lasting results. The CoolGlide system generates laser light through an actively-cooled handpiece. The light then effectively disables unwanted pigmented hair follicles in the actively growing phase of the hair cycle. Hair growth occurs through a cycle which involves an actively-growing phase and a resting phase. The laser attacks only those hairs in the growing phase, so patients may require multiple treatments.

The CoolGlide laser cools and soothes the skin as it glides along. When the pulse of light is delivered, some patients experience a mild stinging or pinching sensation. No local anesthesia or pain medication is typically necessary. Some men undergoing laser hair removal prefer a topical anesthetic when sensitive areas are treated. The CoolGlide laser can remove hair from all parts of the body including the Face, Arms, Underarms, Chest, Back, and Legs.

Recovery
Our male patients may return to normal activities immediately. A skin care regimen should be routinely used. The use of sunscreen on treated areas exposed is highly recommended.

Laser Hair Removal for Men in Manhattan New YorkCommon Questions

Does skin color make a difference?
The CoolGlide laser can work on a variety of skin types from very light to dark skin, with those with very fair skin responding the best. It is recommended to avoid sun exposure prior to treatment.

How many treatments are required?
The number of treatments varies depending on a number of factors including the area to be treated, hair density, and the hair's growth cycle. Usually 2- 5 treatments are necessary each spaced 5 weeks apart.

How does CoolGlide laser compare to other hair removal methods?
Shaving, waxing and depilatory creams are all very temporary requiring repeated treatments. Cool Glide effects long lasting results. Electrolysis is a tedious, invasive and painful process that involves inserting a needle into each hair follicle and delivering an electrical charge to destroy each follicle one at a time. Electrolysis may require years of treatment at regular intervals. CoolGlide delivers non-invasive light energy to hundreds of hair follicles at one time. The number of treatments is usually 2- 5 each spaced about 5 weeks apart.
