Smooth, silky, fuzz-free skin—while highly coveted, is difficult to achieve. Persistently plagued with unwanted hair, many men and women are curious to learn more about laser hair removal.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal works as a concentrated beam of light is focused on the unwanted hair and absorbed by the pigment in the follicle—causing damage to the follicle itself, any future hair growth is prevented. At his New Windsor office, Dr. Fugo is proud to offer Cynosure’s state-of-the-art laser, Vectus. Vectus is unique in that it offers permanent results. As Dr. Fugo explains, Vectus is “the only laser currently available that permanently ablates a hair follicle, thus, permanently removing hair.” This is truly what distinguishes Dr. Fugo’s practice from all others. With other, lesser lasers, the hair always grows back in 12-18 months.
What Are the Benefits of Laser Hair Removal?
Personalized & Precise
The success of laser hair removal is dependent on a number of factors including hair density, hair color, skin tone, and genetics. Dr. Fugo is careful to tailor each treatment to meet your specific needs—creating a treatment that takes into consideration your hair’s color, thickness, and location as well as your skin’s tone and texture. With a specialized interface, Vectus utilizes an innovative melanin reader, assisting Dr. Fugo in finding the optimal setting for your specific treatment.
A versatile treatment, laser hair removal is just as wonderful for treating delicate areas as it is larger areas including:
- Face: Including the Cheeks, Upper Lip & Chin
- Arms and Underarms
- Back and Chest
- Bikini Line
Precise in its hair exacting ways, Vectus is able to target and destroy the cells responsible for hair growth without harming the surrounding skin.
Quick & Comfortable
Whereas other laser treatments are limited in that they use small spot size (1-2cm on average) with prolonged heating, Vectus’ large spot size (10cm) makes for a quick and uniform treatment. As the fastest hair laser on the market, Vectus is able to treat smaller areas, like the bikini line, in only 30 seconds and larger areas, like the entire leg, in 3-4 minutes.
Designed with comfort in mind, Vectus is by far the most comfortable hair laser available. This is made possible by built-in cooling contact system technology that provides ice-cold cooling of the skin while targeting just the hair follicle, thereby avoiding the “collateral damage” experienced with traditional hair treatment lasers. Once your treatment is completed, you need not worry about skin sensitivity and are free to return to your daily routine.
Say goodbye to pesky stubble! With laser hair removal, you no longer will be tasked with shaving daily or painful monthly waxing sessions. For individuals who struggle with sensitive skin, laser hair removal can relieve you from painful and unsightly ingrown hairs.
