Vectus Laser Hair Removal | NY DermatologistIf you are tired of having to endlessly shave and wax unwanted hair on your body, you may be interested in having your hair removed with a laser. Laser hair removal offers a permanent solution to having hair anywhere on your body.

The New Vectus laser is one that our New York dermatologist, Dr. Bruce Katz, favors using because of several reasons. The Vectus laser has a larger treatment area than most laser hair removal systems, so we can remove more hair in less time with fewer treatments.

Setting the Vectus Laser Apart – The Skintel™ Melanin Reader

All laser hair removal systems work in a similar fashion – the high powered light that is emitted from the laser is absorbed into the hair follicle. The light is absorbed more fully by the hair follicle than the surrounding skin tissue which eventually damages the hair so it doesn’t grow anymore.

What makes the Vectus laser different from other hair-removal lasers is that it has the Skintel™ Melanin Reader. This reader senses the differing levels of pigment in your skin and your hair. Using this reading, the laser can be adjusted so it provides the optimum amount of light penetration to the hair follicles. This reader makes the Vectus laser more effective and makes it so it requires fewer treatments than other laser hair removal systems.
