About Laser Hair Removal
Our ‘Prowave’ laser removes unwanted body hair without damaging the delicate pores and structures of the skin and can rapidly treat large areas safely and effectively for a large range of skin types.
Which areas of the body are suitable for Laser?
Prowave can remove hair from all parts of the body including the face, arms, underarms and back.
It can also treat sensitive areas like the chest, nipples and bikini line.
Laser hair removal is most effective on dark hair and fair to medium skin tones. (White, grey, blond or red hair is not suitable as the light targets the melanin only in dark hair.)
How many treatments are required?
This depends on your skin condition, desired outcomes and individual response. As a guide, we generally recommended 3-6 treatments every 4-5 weeks. However, the number of treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors – hair thickness, the area treated and your hair’s growth cycle.
How long does it take?
Treatment time depends on the area being treated. However, most treatments should take less than one hour.
The costs of treatments vary and this is dependent on what area of the body is being treated and how small or large the affected area is.
We recommend, for first time patients, that you have an initial consultation with our Practice Nurse to discuss your skin concerns.
At this time, a tailored treatment plan will be recommended and the fees will be quoted for you prior to any treatments being performed.
