Laser Hair Removal Q & A

How does laser hair removal work?

Apex Dermatology is proud to offer patients of all genders laser hair removal treatments with the Vectus® Laser system. Vectus Laser by CynoSure®, the leaders in laser aesthetics technology, provides high-volume, permanent hair reduction for a wide variety of skin and hair types. The Vectus Laser can treat larger areas of hair in a shorter amount of time than many other laser hair removal systems.

This means faster treatments for large areas and small areas alike, including your:

  • Back
  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Chest
  • Underarms
  • Bikini area
  • Face

The Vectus uses powerful light energy to target and heat hair follicles below the surface of your skin. As your hair follicles absorb the thermal energy, they become damaged so they can no longer produce new hair. Treatments are tailored to your skin type and can be performed safely on most skin pigmentation when untanned and with dark hair as a target.

This damage is permanent, so you get long-lasting hair reduction. Potentially, you may never have to shave or wax again.

How painful is laser hair removal?

Most adults tolerate their laser hair removal treatments without significant discomfort. As the laser energy penetrates your skin, you typically feel a sensation that’s comparable to the snapping of a rubber band. The procedure is fairly quick, depending on the size of the treatment area.

How many laser hair removal treatments do I need?

The number of treatments depends on your skin and hair color and the results you hope to achieve. Many people find that they are hair-free after 3-6 laser hair removal sessions, but your provider at Apex Dermatology customizes a treatment plan based on your individual needs. Because your hair grows in different stages, multiple treatment sessions ensure that all your hair follicles receive the laser energy.

Treating your hair several times means more effective, long-lasting hair reduction. Many times, people notice a gradual decrease in hair thickness and volume after their first laser hair removal treatment. In addition to reduced hair growth, you’ll also enjoy decreased stubble, rashes, and ingrown hairs.

Whether you’ve always wanted to be beach-ready without worry you’ll need to shave, or you’re transitioning from one gender to another and want to reduce the appearance of dark facial or body hair, the team at Apex Dermatology can help.
