What is the ProWave LX?
F or the removal of excess or unwanted hair, the xeo’s ProWave LX handpiece is the perfect solution. With its minimally invasive laser treatment system, the ProWave LX effects permanent hair reduction. The procedure is simple and fast, and with a steady schedule of treatments, you will achieve your desired level of hair reduction.
How does the ProWave LX work?
The ProWave LX handpiece works by targeting each hair follicle with selective heat. The handpiece is finely adjusted to prevent damage to the surrounding tissue. Heat from the handpiece disables each hair follicle, preventing its regrowth. For treatments to be effective, the hair must be in place, so avoid plucking or waxing targeted hair between sessions. Each hair undergoes three phases of growth (anagen, catagen, and telogen) independently of neighboring hairs, so the targeted patch of hair will all be in different phases of growth. Since the ProWave LX only targets the anagen phase, multiple treatments will be necessary. Unfortunately, the ProWave LX is not effective against white, gray, red, or light-blond hair. The handpiece targets the melanin in your hair, so only brown or black hair will absorb its frequencies.
What is ProWave LX treatment like?
During the procedure, one of our providers will run the ProWave LX handpiece over the targeted hair. Treatment is not recommended over or close to tattoos or permanent makeup. Avoid excess sun exposure and artificial tanning for at least four weeks before treatment. After treatment, apply sunscreen liberally to the targeted area, and avoid heat, especially hot tubs and saunas, for several days. Skin redness and rashes may occur, but they fade quickly. Within two weeks, the targeted hair will fall off, and it may grow back lighter and finer. In this case, we will adjust the ProWave LX settings to target this new hair in your next treatment. For facial hair, a 6-8 week interval between treatments is recommended. Body hair requires 8-10 weeks, and back or leg hair requires 10-12 weeks.
Laser hair removal with the ProWave LX is safe and extremely effective. If you have patches of hair that you would like to reduce or remove, the ProWave LX is the answer. Schedule a consultation with us to discuss this life-changing new treatment.
