Laser Hair Reduction

We employ the CoolGlide® Laser to safely, effectively, and permanently remove hair from all regions of the body, such as the face, legs, arms, underarms, back, and even sensitive areas like the chest and bikini line.

At the Larrabee Center for Plastic Surgery in Seattle, we use 21st-century laser technology for the treatment of unwanted hair for both men and women. Enough with the painful waxing and troublesome razors! When it comes to achieving permanent hair reduction, we use the Cutera CoolGlide® Laser to treat people of all skin types safely and effectively, year-round.

The CoolGlide Laser is safe and effective for all skin tones and can remove hair from all parts of the body, including:

  • Face
  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Underarms
  • Back

Even sensitive areas, like the chest and bikini line, can be effectively treated with minimal discomfort.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Because not all the follicles in a given region of the body are producing hair at the same time, multiple treatment sessions are required to permanently eliminate hair growth. Typically, an area of the body will require between four to eight treatments delivered at intervals of four to eight weeks apart.

It’s worth noting, however, that a significant reduction of hair in the treated area may be apparent after your first visit.

Laser hair removal works because it disables hairs that are actively growing at the time of treatment. The Cutera CoolGlide Laser has unique properties among hair removal lasers, such as a longer wavelength and a truly innovative cooling system that, taken together, bring patients hair removal results that are not only effective and safe, but permanent. As the CoolGlide Laser handpiece travels along the surface of your skin, the cooling system gives the experience a soothing sensation. As the pulses of light are delivered, you may experience a mild stinging sensation, but no local anesthesia is typically needed. That being said, if you’re having a very sensitive area treated, you may certainly request that a topical anesthetic be used.

How Many Treatments Will Be Needed?

Most of the time, a given region of the body needs between three and six treatments to achieve the full effect.

When you leave after your first session, you may notice that the treated area appears slightly swollen and reddened—but that will subside in short order. Between three days to a week after the treatment, you’re likely to experience what looks by all accounts like the re-growth of hair. But don’t fret! This is actually hair that is being shed by the body as a result of the laser treatment.

Please note that between sessions it’s okay to shave, but you should not wax or pluck in the treated area.

Important Notice

Our Aesthetic Center is set for a soft reopening Monday, May 18th! 

We are thrilled to announce the soft opening of our aesthetic center on May 18th, 2020 in compliance with Governor Jay Inslee’s proclamation (20-05-20-24) of elective cosmetic medical procedures being restricted up until this date. We will not be resuming full activity of The Larrabee Center right away. 

Suite 385 Covid-19 Updates:

 Below you will find actions we have taken to ensure that you are protected and that we maintain Suite 385 as a Non-Covid Care (NCC) Zone:

Please be advised with the soft opening, our hours, providers, appointment availability and staff will be reduced to avoid unnecessary exposure. We fully understand that this will result in some inconvenience in the short term, but it is essential we do everything in our power to ensure the safety of our patient, and our staff.

We ask that if you are calling to reschedule an appointment from March, April, or early May, please be patient until our front desk coordinators reach out to you as we have limited staff working diligently for reopening and the phone lines are overwhelmed with calls.
