Most people have unwanted hair somewhere on their body. Common areas of concern for women include the upper lip, chin, bikini area, legs, and underarms. Men typically experience unwanted hair growth on the back and buttocks.
Shaving and waxing are common solutions. Unfortunately, both are temporary and cause issues like razor bumps and wax burns. Not to mention the regular grooming practice of shaving and waxing can be an inconvenience.
The good news is that today’s laser technology offers a safe, effective way to permanently eliminate or minimize unwanted body hair to leave you with silken skin.
Silky skin has never been easier to attain
Epitome Medical Aesthetics provides men and women with the most innovative, state-of-the-art treatment options to address your aesthetic concerns. Lead by Dr. Norman Gonzales, our skilled team can help you say goodbye to unwanted body hair and hello to smooth skin with the Vectus™ laser system by industry leader Cynosure. The Vectus system enables our team to easily remove unwanted body hair from arms, underarms, back, chest, legs, the bikini area, and even sensitive areas like the face.
The Vectus laser
The Vectus laser delivers a concentrated, intense heat energy to the target area to disrupt hair follicles. This inhibits future growth so that hair comes in finer, lighter, and less noticeable. The system targets hair follicles while leaving surrounding skin intact and unharmed.
Unlike other laser removal technologies, the Vectus laser is appropriate for virtually everyone looking to get rid of unwanted body hair. Dr. Gonzales can adjust the Vectus laser according to skin tone and melanin density, making it an option for patients of all skin types. Vectus technology enables Dr. Gonzales to target larger treatment areas for faster results with fewer treatments.
What can I expect during treatment?
Dr. Gonzales creates an individualized treatment plan to address your unique aesthetic concerns. When you come in for laser hair removal, your safety and comfort are our top priorities. The Vectus laser sheds its heat quickly to keep you comfortable. However, as a precaution, we may apply topical cooling cream to your skin to minimize discomfort.
Once the cooling has taken effect, you can expect to lie comfortably as the Vectus laser handpiece passes over the targeted areas several times. With each pass, the laser disrupts hair follicles. The procedure is quick and once complete, you can return to work, the gym, and your regular routine immediately.
Vectus laser hair removal offers excellent results with minimal discomfort. Many patients begin to see results after one short session. After several sessions, you can expect to notice a difference in hair growth.
Most patients notice close to an 80% reduction in hair growth after 3-4 sessions. The treated area will have reduced hair growth and feel smoother. For optimal results, we recommend 5-7 sessions, depending on the desired amount of hair removal.
If you’re tired of the hassle of shaving, waxing, and plucking, you’re ready for lasting silky skin. Toss that razor in the trash for good with Vectus laser hair removal. We invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Gonzales by calling our Virginia Beach, VA, office or booking one online at your convenience.
