No more painful waxing, electrolysis or razors! People are seeking a more permanent hair reduction process for many reasons.

Using the latest technology in hair removal, ProWave IPL & Xeo Laser can rapidly treat large areas safely and effectively on patients with a wide range of skin types. The cooled hand piece increases patient comfort and minimizes the adverse skin reaction commonly seen with other light sources
Prior to the treatment, the skin will be thoroughly cleaned and all makeup removed if facial hair is treated. Protective eyewear will be applied and a test pulse of laser or IPL light will be applied to the skin. The laser light will pass through the outer layers of the skin to get to the hair follicle and it will feel like a hot pinprick. This sensation will last for only a second as the cold tip of the laser is applied to the skin immediately after the laser pulse is applied.
When the pulse of light from the Prowave IPL system is delivered, some patients experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. No local anaesthesia or pain medication is typically required for either treatment.
Most areas require 3-8 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. Hair reduction 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
Immediately following your 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 sunburn. These effects typically last for several hours or less. In rare instances, blistering may occur. Consult with your cosmetic practitioner for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.
