Unwanted body and facial hair is a common problem for many men and women of all skin types. Laser hair treatments are safe, effective and convenient way to achieve permanent hair reduction. These treatments deliver outstanding results, saving you time and money!
Hair removal works on the hair follicle under our skin. Pulses of laser or light damages hair follicles in the anagen (growing) stage. This prevents the hair follicles ability to grow back resulting in permanent hair removal. Not all the hair on our body is in the anagen or growing stage at the same time, so more than 1 treatment is required. On average, most require 4-6 treatments 6-8 weeks apart. The color (melanin) of the hair follicle absorbs the light of the laser. Therefore, laser hair removal works best on darker hairs.
We have ample choices to permanently reduce or remove hair at our Medi Spa and can treat all skin tones!
The ProWave LX by Cutera overcomes the limits of other IPL/Light based technology for hair removal. Lighter and finer hair removal is more easily possible with the better targeting capabilities. The ProWave LX provides a fast, comfortable hair removal treatment that can be used on small and large areas.
The Fotona Dynamis Nd:YAG laser can be used on all skin types. It uses an exclusive method of laser delivery called Avalanche FRAC3®. This scientifically proven method is based on a technique by which the absorption of laser light in the hair follicle is increased with each successively delivered laser pulse. The Avalanche method helps reduce discomfort and improves the efficacy of the treatment for darker skin tones.
Side effects may include redness and swelling in the treated area.
Do not tweeze, wax, use a depilatory, or undergo electrolysis in the area being treated for 6 weeks before treatment. It is okay to shave before treatments and between treatments.

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. 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.
ProWave 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.
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.
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. 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.
Following the treatment, you can return to your normal activities right away, but some redness may occur. 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.
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.
Shaving, waxing, and depilatory creams are all temporary methods which must be repeated on a frequent basis. ProWave offers permanent hair reduction for lasting results.
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.
Using the latest technology in hair removal, ProWave can rapidly treat large areas safely and effectively on patients with a wide range of skin types. The cooled handpiece increases patient comfort and minimizes the adverse skin reaction commonly seen with other light sources.
