Permanent Hair Removal:
The ProWave 770® Difference
Unwanted facial and body hair is now a thing of the past – with the Cutera ProWave 770® hair removal system. No more painful waxing, electrolysis or razors! 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.
What is ProWave 770®?
The ProWave 770® delivers 21st century technology for treatment of this upsetting problem. Cleared by the FDA for permanent hair reduction, ProWave® treats a wide range of skin types and tones safely, effectively, and comfortably. ProWave® rapidly handles 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.
How does ProWave® compare with other hair removal methods?
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. Some feel ProWave® is the most comfortable method available today.
What areas can be treated with ProWave®?
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.
What does the treatment 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 required.
How long will a treatment take?
Some areas, like the upper lip, can be treated in a few minutes. Other larger areas, such as the legs or back, will take longer.
How many 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. 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.
What happens after the treatment?
Following the treatment, you can return to your normal activities right away. Occasionally, some redness may occur. The use of sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun. In addition, we may recommend that you use a specially formulated skin care product line or prescribe a skin care regimen especially formulated for your skin type.
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.
What are the possible side effects?
Most clients experience no side effects. A few clients will notice a slight reddening of the skin, similar to a sunburn. These effects typically last for several hours or less.
How 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.
Why is ProWave® a good choice over other hair removal systems?
Using the latest technology in hair removal, ProWave® can rapidly treat large areas safely, effectively, and comfortably 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.
