What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a pain-free method to eliminate unwanted hair that uses intense heat and light to make your hair follicles die. Rapid pulses of light target multiple hair follicles at one time. Dying hair follicles struggle to regrow hair, and with several treatments at Dr. K’s Med Spa in quick succession, you may get permanent results.

The Vectus laser features a large spot size, so more hair can be treated at once. This makes your session fast and effective, without sacrificing your comfort.

What areas of the body can laser hair removal treat?

Practically anywhere on your body is eligible for laser hair removal. Common areas for hair removal include your:

  • Underarms
  • Back
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Chin
  • Upper lip
  • Ears
  • Thighs
  • Neck
  • Chest

At Dr. K’s Med Spa, aesthetic specialists also remove hair around sensitive spots like your bikini line or areolas.

Does Vectus laser hair removal hurt?

Your skilled aesthetic specialist at Dr. K’s Med Spa moves the Vectus handheld laser continuously across your back, legs, lip, thighs, chest, or ears, depending on the areas being treated, and the light pulses intermittently.

You may feel a sting when it’s on, but it’s so mild that you won’t need numbing cream or anesthetic. Your skin may get warm to the touch, but it too is well tolerated and quickly cools down. Vectus features Advanced Contact Cooling™ to help protect your outer layer of skin and keep you comfortable throughout your treatment.

Is Vectus laser hair removal permanent?

You can expect longlasting, possibly permanent results with the Vectus laser. Unlike creams or shaving, laser removal causes your hair follicles to stop performing. For the very best results, you’ll need to up to 12 treatments. In addition, your skin type and color may necessitate additional treatments.

What are the benefits of laser hair removal compared to electrolysis?

Electrolysis takes up much more of your time because it works on one hair at a time. Laser hair removal covers far more territory, treating wide swaths of hair and follicles at one time, and is much faster as a result.

Vectus features the largest spot size and most uniform beam available on the market, so there’s a reduced need for multiple passes over areas being treated.

Are there any side effects with Vectus laser hair removal?

Similar to a sunburn, your skin might get red and swell slightly, but it dissipates quickly, usually within a few hours or by the following day. When you meet with the aesthetic team at Dr. K’s Med Spa, they’ll outline all the benefits and risks of the procedure.
