ProWave laser hair removal is a great way to solve the problem of unwanted body hair. The ease and effectiveness of this procedure makes shaving, waxing, and electrolysis basically obsolete. Hair removal can address areas like the bikini line, back, chin, underarms, legs and elsewhere.

ProWave Laser Hair Removal Procedure

The ProWave Laser is used to apply a specific type of infrared light to hair follicles in areas that have undesired hair. It can be tailored to provide the best possible results for each patient, and also treats large areas quickly. The legs can be treated in just 15 minutes. Laser hair removal can sting, but we employ a variety of methods that work to ease this discomfort. First of all, by setting the laser up properly, pain is most easily controlled. Second, topical anesthetics or a cooling device may also help to mitigate pain sensations.

Certain skin types (usually medium to dark) have special concerns related to this treatment, so it is best to schedule a consultation to determine if ProWave Laser Hair removal is right for you.

Results

Instead of a temporary solution that requires constant repetition, the ProWave laser provides permanent results. This can only be achieved by performing multiple treatments, with each treatment burning roughly 30 percent of the hair follicles. Some patients experience some slight redness afterwards, which subsides after a few hours.

Yag lasers are a relatively gentle and effective device for solving the problem of unwanted body hair. Hair on the underarms, legs, bikini line, back, chin, and other areas can be eradicated with relative ease, and after a few treatments, the results are permanent.

Yag Laser Hair Removal Procedure

Yag Laser hair removal uses a low-energy beam to affect actively growing hair follicles in specified areas. The energy disables the hair follicle and stops its growth. Depending on which (and how many) areas require treatment, the process can take just a few minutes or significantly longer.

Patients of all skin types can benefit from this procedure, but there are special considerations related to persons with darker skin. It is believed that Yag lasers are the safest choice for such skin types.

Recovery and Results

The Yag laser can provides permanent results if treatment is repeated multiple times. Each treatment affects roughly 30 percent of the hair follicles. Some patients experience some slight redness afterwards, which subsides after a few hours.
