After using the new ProWave LX in two of our branches for the last few months, we are already seeing great clinical results, predictable outcomes and a cost savings.
While previously we might have needed three to five treatments to see results –or anywhere from five to ten applications for patients with light hair –we are now obtaining good results in just two to three sessions. The ProWave LX hair removal system from Cutera, is a versatile infrared programmable wavelength system available on the company’s established Xeo platform. This device’s unique technology offers the power of an alexandrite laser with the ease of intense pulsed light (IPL). Now we can treat all hair colours except for white and red – even lighter, finer hairs, which have been very difficult to treat with other devices.
Very high power and a short pulse duration ensure effective treatments on fine, light hair. In addition, contact cooling makes it very comfortable and minimizes any chance of side effects, even in dark skin. The cold sapphire cooling tip makes treatment very comfortable and an internal monitor controls the temperature so it stays where it’s set. This unique technology also reduces the number of treatments required by a patient, whereas previously, patients may have needed between five and ten treatments, patients are already noting significant results as from treatment three.
