Introducing the Cutera ProWave
Now both men and women are making unwanted facial and body hair a problem of the past – thanks to Cutera ProWave laser hair removal.* No more painful waxing, razors or electrolysis- the ProWave delivers 21st century technology for safe and effective treatment of the distressing problem.1*
Laser Hair Removal Areas
What areas can be treated with ProWave?
An advantage of the Cutera ProWave hair reduction system is the ability of the handpiece to treat both large and small areas. Therefore, ProWave can remove hair from all parts of the body including the face, legs, arms, underarms and back.* Even sensitive body parts such as the nipples and bikini area can achieve hair reduction with this system.*
Laser Hair Removal Treatments
What do ProWave treatments feel like?
Patients describe the sensation as a “snap” or “hot flash” against their skin. The ProWave handpiece has a cooled section on it which immediately passes over the treated area, increasing patient comfort and minimizing any adverse reactions. Pain medication or topical anesthesia is usually not needed. However, both are available when laser hair removal treatments are performed on more sensitive body areas.
How many ProWave treatments will I need?
Six treatments are recommended for full results.* However, the number of treatments needed for optimal long-term benefits depends on many factors such as hair thickness, your hair’s growth cycle and the body area being treated. No laser hair removal system available is able to get rid of 100% of a person’s hair follicles. The ProWave promotes at least 80% reduction in hair growth and thickness.1*
What happens after each treatment?
Immediately following each laser hair removal session, the area may appear slightly red and/or swollen. You can return to your normal activities right away, although you may not wax or pluck your hair in between treatments. It is permissible to shave. The use of sunscreen is highly recommended on any area receiving laser hair removal treatments.
What are the possible side effects?
The Cutera ProWave is known both for its efficacy and for its safety.1* Most patients experience no side effects, other than perhaps some slight redness for an hour or so after their laser hair removal treatment.* In rare instances, blistering may occur, which could lead to scarring.
