What is laser hair removal?
If you have unwanted hair, don’t stress! Laser hair removal has never been easier. Shaving, waxing, and bleaching are temporary fixes that take up a lot of time and cause a lot of frustration. But with a series of treatments, the state-of-the-art Vectus laser can help you enjoy low-maintenance living with smooth, silky skin.
How does the Vectus laser work?
Laser hair removal devices became commercially available in the 1990s and have been an incredibly popular treatment ever since. Using energy emitted by light, the Vectus laser targets the melanin within the hair and skin at the specific areas of concern. The laser heats the hair and breaks down the melanin within it, eventually causing the follicles to stop producing new hairs. This results in permanent hair reduction.*
What areas can lasers treat?
The Vectus laser can treat hair on virtually any area of the body. These areas include:
- Bikini area
Laser hair removal is not effective on blonde or gray hair.
Is laser hair removal painful?
Our providers will ensure that you feel comfortable during the entire procedure. Many clients report feeling a slight momentary snap during treatments, but it is tolerable. After treatment, you may experience a mild, sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by minor swelling and redness. The redness and swelling usually fade within 24 hours.
How long do treatments take?
Treatment times vary drastically depending upon the patient, hair quality/thickness, and areas being treated. Treatments can last anywhere from a few minutes to more than an hour. Typically, 4-6 treatments are required for complete hair removal. Treatment interval depends on treatment location.
Why choose Vectus?
One of the most innovative lasers on the market, the Vectus can treat larger areas in less time and with less discomfort than other hair removal systems. Your provider will work with you to create a customized treatment plan.
Are there side effects?
Side effects are minimal. The most common side effects of Vectus include itching, redness, mild swelling, and skin sensitivity.
