The Cutera Prowave is a highly technologically advanced hair removal system. This innovative treatment provides treatment for a wide range of skin types; an additional benefit is the ability to treat large areas such as legs and backs – very quickly and safely. One of the biggest advantages of Cutera Prowave is that it offers a permanent hair reduction for lasting results, unlike the old methods such as shaving, waxing and using depilatory creams.
What does it feel like?
When the Prowave pulse light is delivered, you may experience a slight pinching/stinging sensation. However, anaesthesia or pain-relief medicine is typically not required.
What happens after the treatment?
The most common side effects are local swelling and slight reddening. However, all this usually lasts anywhere between a few hours to a day. To cover the redness, you can apply make up. In rare instances, blistering can occur so please consult with us for full information on the benefits and risks of this treatment.
Why Prowave over other hair removal treatments?
Using this advanced Cutera Prowave will rapidly treat large areas safely and effectively on patients with a variety of skin types. The cooled Cutera handpiece increases patient comfort and minimises the adverse skin reaction, which is common with other light-treatments.
