Laser Hair Reduction Q & A

Vintage Wellness and Aesthetics

What is laser hair reduction?

Laser hair reduction uses concentrated and carefully controlled beams of light to reduce body hair. It's effective in almost all areas of your body, including your face, legs, arms, bikini area, underarms, and back. Spot treatments can even remove hair from smaller areas, like your ears or the tops of your toes.

How does laser hair reduction work?

The Vectus laser uses pulses of laser energy that target specific follicles over both large and small areas. It also features a cooling system that keeps you comfortable throughout the treatment, which can take as little as five minutes.

Energy from the cutting-edge Vectus laser system penetrates your skin, and the melanin in each hair follicle absorbs this light energy. The heat damages the follicle, preventing it from growing new hair. The Vectus laser system even features an advanced melanin reader that optimizes the procedure for your skin type and pigmentation.

Your hair follicles cycle through periods of growth and dormancy; at any given time, only about 15-40% of your hair follicles are in an active growth stage. Laser hair reduction is most effective during the growth stage, so you might require several treatments spaced 6-8 weeks apart.

What are the benefits of laser hair reduction?

Shaving, waxing, and other hair removal options are expensive, especially when you track those costs over time. And unlike shaving or depilatory creams, laser hair reduction offers a long-lasting method for achieving soft, smooth skin.

Laser hair reduction does require an up-front investment, but you recover the costs in the long run: After a series of carefully timed sessions, many men and women report virtually no regrowth in the treated areas. What little regrowth does occur is so negligible that most people don’t even notice it!

The aestheticians at Vintage Wellness and Aesthetics Center use the state-of-the-art, FDA-cleared Cynosure Vectus system for all laser hair reduction sessions. Whether you have any questions or concerns about the treatment, or you’re ready to begin a path toward smoother skin, call or book a consultation online today.
