laser hair removal
TRULY YOU can have smooth touchable skin that lasts anywhere on your body
Shaving, plucking and waxing are common ways to manage unwanted body hair, but none offer a permanent solution. Laser Hair Removal gets to the root of the problem and gives you effective, permanent hair reduction anywhere on your body. There are many advantages to Laser Hair Removal; quick and mess free treatments, lasting results, does not require hair to be grown out and overall less expensive. It’s time to get rid of your unwanted hair the simple way – with laser hair reduction. The VECTUS laser offers quick, easy and extremely effective treatments to permanently reduce hair growth.
The secret lies in the clinically-proven technology that targets and destroys the cells responsible for hair growth without harming surrounding skin. Laser treatments work best on dark hair and not recommended for white and gray hair because the laser energy is “seeking” the pigment in your hair. This draws the energy into the hair follicle, damaging the stem cells that are responsible for hair growth. Multiple treatments are required because the laser only targets the hair when it is in its growth cycle (we have three cycles of hair growth and the laser is only effective on of the cycles). Some patients notice a significant reduction after only one treatment…but it’s all dependent on your growth cycles!
Laser Hair Removal with the Vectus laser is FDA-cleared and, best of all, treatment sessions take just minutes. We can treat hair all over the body, including bikini, brazilian, chest, back, underarms, abdomen, arms and legs, and face. This is the hair removal solution youʼve been waiting for!
What Areas Can Be Treated?
With the flexibility of our laser hair removal device, we can essentially treat hair anywhere on the body. The most commonly treated areas include the lip, back, chest, arms, underarms, bikini line, brazilian and legs.
Am I A Good Candidate For This Procedure?
Permanent hair reduction is available for all skin types, including very light and very dark skin, and most hair colors. However, laser hair removal does not effectively treat light or grey hair. The energy of the laser is mainly targeting the pigment in hair – therefore, we typically see best results with darker hair.
How Does It Work?
Light energy is used to target and destroy hair follicles responsible for hair growth without harming surrounding tissue.
How Long Does It Take?
Our laser hair removal device is FAST! We can typically do a full back in less than 10 minutes….and we can treat an upper lip in less than 1 minute!
How Many Treatments Will It Take?
Several treatment sessions are recommended for the best aesthetic outcome. Permanent hair reduction technology can only affect hair in active phases of growth so several treatments are needed to affect all your unwanted hair. You do not need to let hair grow out between treatment sessions.
What Will The Treatment Feel Like?
Most people feel only a slight, momentary “snap” at the treatment site during the procedure. We can apply a topical anesthetic cream to make the procedure more comfortable, if needed.
How Quickly Will I Recover?
You can resume regular daily activities immediately following treatment.
Are There Side Effects?
Typically, most people experience a mild, sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor swelling, immediately following the treatment. This usually lasts two to 24 hours.
