A fellow of the American Society for Laser Medicine, Dr. Scott Hernberg founded Tomorrow’s Wellness Center to enhance beauty and health through a synthesis of technology and holistic methods. With Cutera’s laser hair-removal system, Dr. Hernberg helps remove fuzziness from a wide range of skin types, body parts, and memories of 21st birthdays. The Solera ProWave delivers a specially tailored light source and treats large areas, and the CoolGlide laser cools and soothes as it saunters along the skin. The CoolGlide emanates a longer wavelength, allowing it to be used on patients with light, dark, or tanned skin.
Before each treatment, technicians slather epidermises with topical anesthetics, if requested, to dull the mild stinging sensation that many patients experience. Next, the laser handpiece glides gently over the offending fringe. Afterward, some redness or swelling may occur, and though side effects are rare, some patients experience blistering. However, most clients can immediately return to their normal activities, such as going to work or making sculptures out of maimed slinkies.
