Everywhere you look, beauty articles warn you to start early with laser hair-removal sessions if you want a smooth, celebrity-level bikini body by summer. “Yeah yeah,” you kept saying, but oops. You just checked the calendar, and summer’s closing in.
Do you have to look hairy or stubbly in your suit because you didn’t book your laser hair removal session soon enough, or can you do it today and be hair-free by the time you hit the beach? If you’re running late, Dr. Laura S. Riehm, founder of Skin Deep Laser MD in Fort Worth, Texas, recommends finding a practice that has a purpose-built laser that’s solely used for removing unwanted hair if you want the best and fastest results.
At Skin Deep Laser MD, Dr. Riehm and her team use the Cynosure Vectus® to eliminate unwanted hair. Unlike multi-purpose lasers, which — like a jack-of-all-trades may be able to do a number of things, but none of them exceedingly well— the purpose-built Vectus was made for removing unwanted hair. And that’s it.
The Vectus utilizes diode technology to target large amounts of unwanted hair in a single treatment session. In less time than ever, the Vectus can remove unsightly hair from your:
Back and shoulders
Depending on how many areas you wanted treating, your session ranges from 5-30 minutes long.
A purpose-built laser device is safer, newer, and more efficient than traditional lasers. The Vectus system features an FDA-approved SkinTel® Melanin Reader™ that only targets the pigment in your hair, without affecting your skin.
Dr. Riehm adjusts the laser’s wavelength, based on your SkinTel reading. The laser’s pulsing energy then bypasses your skin to precisely hit the more deeply pigmented hair shafts located deep within your follicles. The heat from the laser damages the follicles, so they can’t hold onto or produce hairs anymore.
Other advantageous features of the purpose-built Vectus include:
Uniform laser beam — reduces hot spots and treatment time
Advanced Contact Cooling™ — keeps your skin comfortable
Photon Recycling™ — permits larger treatment areas
Thanks to Vectus’ advanced, purpose-built technology, you’ll notice a reduction in the volume of your unwanted hair after just one treatment. Within two weeks, a significant amount of unwanted hair falls out.
Dr. Riehm recommends a series of six treatments to catch each of your unwanted hairs in its optimal growth stage, leaving about four to six weeks between sessions. However, even just one treatment significantly reduces the amount of unwanted hair on a treated area, so you can feel confident at the pool, lake, or beach.
Once the hair falls out, it won’t grow back or will grow back so fine that it’s virtually invisible. With just an annual touch-up Vectus treatment, you’ll be able to throw away the razors, depilatories, and wax for good.
