Laser Hair Removal at Naperville’s John Bull Center
Do you have unwanted hair on your arms, back, shoulders, legs, bikini line, or even your stomach and chest? If that’s the case, it’s time to discover laser hair removal at Naperville’s John Bull Center, serving Western Chicago-area men and women who want smooth skin but are tired of routinely using razors.
Although we’ve moved from painstaking plucking to Googling “laser hair removal near me,” the desire for at least some skin that’s smooth and bare has not changed for thousands of years. Fortunately, treatments have. Dr. John Bull chose Cutera CoolGlide for laser hair removal at his practice because it uses 21st-century technology to solve an age-old problem. Cleared for long-lasting hair reduction, the CoolGlide laser hair removal device can treat men and women of all skin types safely and effectively all year-round. That means no more painful waxing, electrolysis, or razors.
Popular Treatment Zones
This technology can be used on popular treatment zones, such as the bikini area, the back, the arms and legs, the chest and shoulders, facial areas, and more. While previous generations of laser hair removal devices did not work as well on tanned skin, this is not a problem for Cutera CoolGlide.
Properly Targeted Follicles
Every hair on your head or body grows from a follicle, which contains pigment-producing cells that give the strands their color. Laser hair removal works by sending light into the follicles, where the darker pigmentation absorbs the energy and rapidly heats up to a point that damages the hair-growing cells.
Only cells that are in what is known as the “active phase” can be treated this way. Since about 80 percent of a treatment area’s follicles are active at any given time, several treatments spread out over weeks or months will be necessary to ensure all follicles are properly targeted. Once damaged by the heat, the follicles “shut down.” The existing hair shafts will fall out, and no new hair will grow to replace them for quite some time—much longer than possible after shaving that cuts the hairs to the surface of the skin or plucking and waxing that pull the hairs out but leave the follicle working to grow new hairs. As follicle activity gradually returns following laser hair removal, the new hairs should be finer and lighter in color, making them less noticeable and easier to deal with.

Optimal Long-term Benefits
Right after your CoolGlide session, the area may appear a bit red and swollen. Three to seven days after the laser hair removal treatment, you may experience what seems to be regrowth of hair.
Actually, most of these hairs are being shed from the follicle as a result of your treatment and are not re-growing. You should not wax or tweeze your hair between treatments, but it is permissible to shave. Most areas require six treatments, but the number of CoolGlide sessions required for optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors, including hair thickness, hair color, the area treated, and your hair’s growth cycle.
Ideal Laser Hair Removal System
Cutera CoolGlide was designed to be an ideal laser hair removal system for all skin types, from light to dark, including tanned patients. Anyone considering the treatment should be in good health and understand the scope of the process, as well as the results possible.
Discover the Power of Lasers
The focused light that makes laser hair removal so effective is also put to good use in other non-surgical procedures, including laser skin resurfacing, laser acne treatments, laser vein treatments, and laser cellulite treatments.
