VECTUS Laser Hair Removal
Removal of unwanted dark hair can be achieved by a series of VECTUS laser treatments. Using the patented Skintel technology, and performed by our extensively trained and experienced technicians under the supervision of Dermatologists, permanent hair reduction can be safely achieved in people of all skin colours.
Excess facial and body hair can be the result of hereditary factors, medications, and some underlying medical conditions. It is important to take these factors into consideration when choosing a hair removal professional.
What should I expect from the treatment?
Following treatment, the damaged hairs come to the skin's surface and fall out; this continues for 2-4 weeks. After all the hairs have fallen out, the treated area should remain free of most hair for 4-6 weeks, initially. This time period will get longer and the amount of hair regrowth will become less with each subsequent treatment.
How many treatments are required?
Usually between 4 and 8 treatments will be needed during the first year and 1 to 3 treatments may be required in subsequent years.
Is this permanent?
While many hairs will be permanently destroyed after a series of treatments, it is not possible to say that all hairs will be permanently removed.
Does it hurt?
Slight burning, similar to flicking of a hot elastic band or warm water dropping on the skin is felt. This resolves quickly after treatment.
Will this harm my skin?
Immediately following treatments, the skin turns red and tiny hive-like bumps appear. These changes resolve within 12-24 hours. You may return to your usual activities right away. Make-up can be applied immediately after treatment. No permanent damage to the skin should occur.
How should I prepare myself for a treatment?
For one month prior to treatment and between treatments, do not use any method other than shaving or trimming to remove hair from the treatment area. This will ensure that as many hairs as possible are available to be treated and you will have a better result.
You can shave or cut the hair to be treated up to the day of treatment. We request that you do shave the treatment area at home prior to your treatment.
You must avoid sun and tanning beds for one month before and one month after treatment. The use of sunscreen SPF30 or greater in the treatment area is recommended at all times. Self-tanning lotions should be discontinued one week prior to treatment.
