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
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,
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
Does skin color make
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
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.
