Laser Hair Removal Q & A
What is laser hair removal?
Unwanted hair can be embarrassing, and waxing, shaving, or tweezing can be frustrating. Laser hair removal is an extremely popular cosmetic procedure at Tru-Male Medical to permanently remove unwanted hair.
Laser hair removal uses light energy to target and destroy the hair follicles in your skin. The pigment, or color, in the hair follicles absorbs the heat produced by the light, and this destroys the hair.
Laser treatment is noninvasive and the surrounding skin is left undamaged. Dr. Marshall uses laser treatment to eliminate hair on your:
How does Vectus remove unwanted hair?
Dr. Marshall uses the Vectus® system for powerful laser hair removal. Vectus uses the latest in laser technology to remove high-volume hair on big surface areas in less time than with other laser systems.
Vectus is a flexible system with larger laser spot sizes to tackle large areas like your back and chest. It’s equipped with a uniform laser to reduce hot spots and Advanced Contact Cooling™ technology to keep you comfortable during treatment.
Vectus selectively targets hair follicles with powerful laser energy. This damages the follicles so they can no longer grow new hair, resulting in permanent hair removal.
What can I expect with Vectus treatment?
Dr. Marshall customizes laser hair removal for every patient. He helps you decide if laser hair removal is right for you and recommends a series of treatment sessions to achieve optimal results.
Before your first treatment, Dr. Marshall and his team trim the hair in the treatment area. He adjusts the Vectus laser for your skin tone and hair color. You’ll wear eye protection and Dr. Marshall applies a cooling gel to the surface of your skin during treatment.
Most patients experience very little downtime with laser hair removal, but mild redness or irritation on the treated skin is common. You can expect to come back in for treatment every four to six weeks until hair no longer grows in the treated areas.
Vectus works on a variety of skin types and skin tones. To find out if laser hair removal is a good option for you, book your first appointment online or by phone today.
