IPL hair removal is a safe, non-invasive treatment that permanently reduces the number of re-growing hairs. Light pulses are used to damage hair follicles thereby effecting their ability to grow hair.
Most areas require 6-10 treatments however, the number depends on multiple factors- hair thickness, the area treated and your hair’s growth cycle. Each hair grows at a different rate and goes through three distinct phases; growth, regression and resting. Since hair enters a growth phase at different times, additional treatments may be necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in any given area. Between treatments it is permissible to shave. Following the treatment you can return to normal activities, so long as no heat or friction is incurred for 36 hours. Shaving, waxing and depilatory creams are all temporary methods which must be repeated on a regular basis. IPL offers permanent hair reduction for lasting results.
The ProWave difference
The ProWave hair removal system delivers a specifically tailored light source for permanent hair reduction. Cutera's newest hair removal innovation provides treatment for a wide range of skin types. An additional patient benefit is the ability of the handpiece to treat large areas such as women's legs and men's backs - quickly and safely.
What areas can be treated with ProWave?
ProWave can remove hair from all parts of the body including the face, legs, arms, underarms, and back. It can also treat sensitive areas like the chest and bikini line.
What do ProWave treatments feel like?
When the pulse of light is delivered, some patients experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. No local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required.
How many treatments will I need?
Most areas require 6-10 treatments. However, the number of treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors - hair thickness, the area treated and your hair's growth cycle. Each hair grows at a different rate and goes through three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting. ProWave treatments work by disabling the hair that is principally in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments may be necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.
How does ProWave compare with other hair removal methods?
Shaving, waxing, and depilatory creams are all temporary methods which must be repeated on a frequent basis. ProWave offers permanent hair reduction for lasting results. Using the latest technology in hair removal, ProWave can rapidly treat large areas safely and effectively on patients with a wide range of skin types. The cooled handpiece increases patient comfort and minimizes the adverse skin reaction commonly seen with other light sources.
