Unwanted hair can be frustrating, embarrassing, and uncomfortable, but conventional hair removal treatments are messy and often ineffective. At Method Aesthetics & Wellness in Wexford, Pennsylvania, licensed medical aesthetician Katalin Reimann, LMA, provides laser hair removal to quickly and effectively remove unwanted hair. Call the office or book an appointment online to learn more about how laser hair removal can get you the smooth skin you’ve always desired.
At Method Aesthetics & Wellness, Katalin uses the Vectus® Laser for hair removal. It provides permanent hair reduction for a wide range of skin and hair types and works on many parts of the body as well as the face.
The Vectus Laser features the largest spot size and the most uniform beam available from laser hair removal systems available today. This makes for quick, effective hair removal from even large areas of skin, such as the back or chest.
As the laser energy penetrates your hair follicles, the pigment in these follicles absorbs the light and effectively destroys both the actual hairs and the follicles’ ability to grow more hair.
Laser hair removal is effective pretty much anywhere you have unwanted hair. This includes the:
You can have multiple areas treated in one laser hair removal session.
Skip waxing, electrolysis, or plucking any hair for about six weeks prior to your appointment. These methods temporarily remove the root, which the laser must target in order to be effective.
Laser hair removal is less effective when your skin is tanned, so also avoid the sun and tanning beds for about six weeks before treatment. It’s also wise to stay out of the sun for about six weeks following a session because your skin is temporarily more sensitive.
You feel heat and tingling during a hair removal session, but most people tolerate the treatment quite well. The Vectus Laser is equipped with Advanced Contact Cooling™ to protect the outer layer of skin and help keep you comfortable throughout treatment.
The exact number of sessions you’ll need depends on your hair and skin type and your ultimate goals. Most people need between two and six treatments for effective reduction or elimination of unwanted hair. Because the Vectus Laser is more effective, faster, and treats larger areas in one session, the number of treatments you need is fewer than with other laser hair removal systems.
