IPL Hair Removal
Permanent reduction of Hair - We use Cutera’s newest hair removal innovation, the ProWave, to provide treatment for a wide range of skin types. The hair removal system delivers a specially tailored light source for permanent hair reduction. Areas such as Face, Arms, Underarms, Bikini, Brazilian, Legs, Chests and Back can be treated safely and quickly.
What do the treatments feel like?
When the pulsed light is delivered, some patients experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation.
How many treatments will I need?
Most areas require 4 - 6 treatments. However, the number of treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors - hormones, the area to be 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 the treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments may be necessary to disable all the hair follicles in a given area.
Why is Prowave a good choice over other hair removal systems?
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.
