Laser Diode for Permanent Hair Reduction
The laser alternative
The Vectus Laser is the product of Palomar’s unequaled experience in developing superior hair removal technologies; with intelligent features that optomize hair removal treatment. We are glad to announce that we are the first clinic in the province of Quebec to provide the Vectus permanent hair reduction treatments.
The Vectus Laser features the integrated SkintelTM Melanin Reader. The SkintelTM Melanin ReaderTM provides an additional element of treatment confidence by determining the average melanin density of skin, in a quantitative manner, prior to energy-based aesthetic treatment - such as hair removal or photorejuvenation. Understanding how much melanin is in the skin helps us to better choose the treatment settings on Palomar systems for enhanced treatment outcomes, while minimizing risk of over treatment.
Permanent hair reduction requires irreversible damage to structures responsible for hair growth, some of which are non-pigmented. The pigment used for laser hair removal is melamin which is contained in the hair shaft and hair matrix but is not contained within other structures of the hair follicule responsible for hair growth.
Most laser systems and particularly many diode laser systems produce highly non-uniform beams of light that generate localized spots of intense laser power. Hot spots can be very evident both by increased pain and non-uniform effects on the skin. In contrast, the Vectus Laser provides a very uniform spatial beam profile. The benefits of the uniform spatial beam profile are manifested in less pain per equivalent output, better hair clearing because more laser energy can be safely launched into the skin and faster treatments because the need for overlapping of the hand piece is minimized.
Treatments are 2.5 time faster than a leading competitor (Data on file). Small areas, such as underarms or upper lip, can be treated in 5 minutes or less, and even large areas, like the back or legs, can be treated under 20 minutes.
Unlike waxing, there is no need to let hair grow out between treatments. You can remain hair free all the time.
