Hair can be beautiful, but it doesn’t always grow where we want it. Do you feel like you’re in a constant battle with yours? At times, it can seem like the more you pluck, wax, or shave, the harder it gets to maintain. And that’s the frustrating thing about body hair – unless you remove it the correct way, it always grows back, sometimes even fuller than before.
Traditional hair removal techniques can be painful, messy, and time-consuming. There’s no mistaking the sting of tweezing or the burn and pain of waxing. And the larger the area of skin, the more discomfort. Who wants that?
If you’d like to shake up your tired, ineffective hair removal routine, check with an aesthetic medical professional about the Vectus Laser.
How It Works
The Vectus machine sends pulses of light that penetrate the skin down to the hair follicles. Instead of removing only the visible part of the hair (like shaving) or forcing you to rip the hair follicle out manually (like plucking or waxing), this technique eliminates hair at the root – all without damaging the skin.
Thankfully, Vectus is painless and quick compared to other removal methods, and it takes only a few minutes to treat even larger body areas. What’s more, the results are long-term because the underlying hair follicles will cease to grow.
First, to assess your skin type accurately, your provider will use the Skintel Melanin Reader to calibrate the laser. Then, they will apply a Vectus attachment explicitly designed for the area you want to treat. As a result, you can easily have hair removed from the legs, underarms, upper lip, arms, back, chest, and bikini line.
To minimize any discomfort and protect your skin, the Vectus uses Advanced Contact Cooling technology. Therefore, you don’t have to endure pain for smoother skin. Also, because of the way the Vectus protects your skin, the procedure requires minimal to no downtime.
Before and After Vectus Laser Treatment
For six weeks before your Vectus treatment, it’s crucial to avoid waxing, shaving, or plucking your target area. That’s because, for maximum effect, you want your hair follicles to be intact so the machine can treat them. For the same reason, you should also minimize any sun exposure during the same period.
After the procedure, your treated skin may redden for one to two days. Then, over a few weeks, you’ll see the hair gradually fall out. For maximal results, most patients require six to eight treatments performed four to eight weeks apart.
