The Vectus™ provides a gentle long-term solution to effectively remove unwanted hair at all areas. It sends bundled light of a specific wavelength, which will be absorbed from the pigment melanin in the hair root. This process heats-up the cell structure in and around the hair root, which destroys the hair root without affecting the surrounding tissue (selective destruction of the hair root). Only hair which is currently within its growth phase can be treated. As not all hair is in the growth phase at the same time, several treatments are necessary. The hair falls out a few days after the treatment. The Vectus™ Laser is cooling the skin during the treatment and is therefore gentle and almost painless. The system will be adjusted to meet the requirements of your hair colour and hair structure and is suitable for every type. However light, thin hair (fluff) requires more treatment sessions than dark, thick hair.
The area to be treated must be shaved 2-3 days prior to treatment, so that the hair root is reached better with the laser light. After the treatment solarium and intensive sun exposure must be avoided.
Depending on the intensity of the hair growth, the colour, thickness of the hair and the area to be treated there are on average 6-8 treatment sessions necessary.
At the treated area mild redness or local swelling may occur, but this irritation usually disappears within a few hours.
