What is ProWave hair removal?
The ProWave hair removal system delivers a specially tailored light source for long-lasting hair reduction.* Similar to laser hair removal, ProWave 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. Now men and women alike are making unwanted facial and body hair a thing of the past. No more painful waxing, electrolysis or razors for hirsutism! The ProWave delivers 21st century technology for treatment of this distressing problem.
How does ProWave compare with electrolysis?
Electrolysis is a tedious, invasive, and painful process that involves inserting a needle into each individual hair follicle and delivering an electrical charge to them one at a time. Electrolysis often requires years of treatments at regular intervals. By delivering light energy to hundreds of hair follicles at a time, ProWave effectively treats an area in just seconds that would take over an hour with electrolysis.*
What can I expect during treatments?
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; however, some patients may prefer to use a topical anesthetic when sensitive areas are treated.
What can I expect from the results?
ProWave offers hair reduction for lasting results.* Shaving, waxing, and depilatory creams are all temporary methods which must be repeated on a frequent basis. Although patients experience few side effects, those most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to a sunburn. These effects typically last for several hours or less. In rare instances, blistering may occur. Consult with your medical professional for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.
