How frequently do I come for Laser Hair Removal treatments?
Frequency depends on the body areas treated. You will come in once every 6-8 weeks for legs, bikini and underarms. For upper lip, chin and sideburns you will come once every 4-6 weeks. After 6-8 sessions you will see up to 90% hair reduction. A touch-up treatment may be needed every 8-12 weeks until the finest and most stubborn hair is removed.

What do ProWave treatments 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 typically required; however, some patients may prefer to use a topical anesthetic when sensitive areas are treated.

What are the possible side effects?
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.
