ProWave LX Laser Hair Removal
No more painful waxing, electrolysis or razors! The ProWave LX makes facial and body hair a thing of the past. The ProWave LX can treat a wide range of skin types and tones safely and effectively on both men and women alike.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
The ProWave LX 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, nipples and bikini line.
What do ProWave LX 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; however some patients may prefer to use a topical anesthetic when sensitive areas are treated.
How many ProWave treatments will I need?
Most areas require 3-6 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. Treatments work by disabling the hair that is in the active growth phase at different times. Additional treatments may be necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.
What happens after the treatment?
Immediately following a treatment, the area may appear a bit red and swollen. Three to seven days after your treatment you may experience what seems to be a regrowth of hair. Actually, most of these hairs are being shed as a result of your treatment and are not regrowing. Between treatments, you should not wax or pluck your hair but it is permissible to shave.
Are there any restrictions on my activity after treatment?
Following the treatment, you can return to your normal activities right away but some redness may occur. The use of sunscreen is highly recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun.
What are the possible side effects?
Although there are few side effects, those most common are a slight reddening and local swelling of the skin similar to a sunburn. These effects typically last for several hours or less. In rare cases, blistering may occur.
How does ProWave LX compare to other hair removal methods?
Shaving, waxing and depilatory creams are all temporary methods which must be repeated on a frequent basis. ProWave LX offers permanent hair reduction for lasting results.
