ProWave™ combines the strength of both IPL and lasers that is 2 times faster than other hair removal systems. The ProWave™ hair removal system delivers a specially tailored light source for permanent hair reduction.
Cutera's® newest hair removal innovation provides treatment for a wide range of skin types. Most areas treated require 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.
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. Immediately following your ProWave™ treatment, the area may appear a bit red and swollen. Three to seven days after treatment you may experience what seems to be 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.
The use of sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun. In addition, your physician may recommend that you use a specially formulated skin care product line or prescribe a skin care regimen especially formulated for your skin type.
