Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is the Vectus Laser?

The Vectus Laser is a state-of-the-art laser that uses diode technology to remove hair quickly and safely.

The laser treats the unwanted hair on your:

  • Legs
  • Arms and underarms
  • Bikini area
  • Face
  • Chest and back

Due to the sensitivity in the area, the Vectus Laser can’t be used to remove hair around or near your eyes.

How does the Vectus Laser work?

The Vectus Laser targets the hair follicle that grows the unwanted hair, heats it, and destroys it without causing any damage to your skin.

The specialized laser is equipped with a number of specialty features to improve hair removal, while reducing discomfort.

  • Advanced Contact Cooling™ — keeps your skin cool while the laser heats the follicle
  • Photon Recycling™ — allows the laser to precisely target the hair follicle while limiting the need for multiple passes over your skin
  • Skintel™ Melanin Reader™ — reads the melanin, or color in your skin, allowing the laser to adjust, making it safe for all skin colors

What is the hair removal procedure?

During treatment, the Vector Laser specialist at Nature Coast Healthcare Center places the laser on the skin where you want the hair removed, and the laser zaps the area. You may feel a slight sting as the laser does its job, but the discomfort doesn’t last.

The length of your treatment depends on the area where you’re having hair removed, but it can be only a few minutes or up to 30 minutes.

After treatment, your skin may feel like it’s sunburned, but you should be able to go back to your normal activities without any problems. The doctors at Nature Coast Healthcare Center may recommend over-the-counter pain relievers to ease any discomfort or swelling.

How many treatments do I need?

Because hair grows in stages, you may need several treatments to fully remove the hair. The team at Nature Coast Healthcare Center works with you to develop a plan that gets you the results you want. After treatment, the hair won’t grow back, which means no more shaving, tweezing, or waxing.
