Hair Removal

Imagine what it would be like to never need to wax, shave, or have electrolysis again! Well now it’s possible with laser hair reduction. No more ingrown hairs, no more irritation, and you’ll find your skin tone improves as well.

Our treatment works by emitting pulses of light energy into the hair follicles. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair and is converted to heat energy. The heat loosens the hair and disables the cells responsible for new growth.

Treatments are safe and more tolerable than traditional waxing and electrolysis. All areas of the body are treatable. Preparation is simple. The area to be treated should be shaved prior to the appointment and moisturizers avoided. Direct sunlight as well as tanning beds should be avoided four weeks prior to treatment. Individuals with darker skin types may need to have test spots prior to treatment.

After treatment, redness and warmth similar to mild sunburn may be experienced. This usually subsides within an hour or two after treatment. Most people experience little or no symptoms or side effects at all. Resumption of all normal activities can occur immediately after, but it is recommended to avoid heat sources such as Jacuzzis or hot tubs for about 24 – 48 hours.

The number of treatments necessary will vary with a minimum of three being required but may need as many as six. This is due to our natural hair cycles being at different stages at any given point. The interval between sessions is usually about six weeks.

ProWave770How 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.
