Annoyed by Unwanted Hair?

The level of unwanted body hair on the body is largely based on individual hormone levels. Androgen are hormones responsible for the density of body hair following puberty. Your androgen quantity level can make the appearance of hair thicker and more prominent. For those who also suffer from sensitive skin, the appearance of excessive body hair can be a real problem due to the potential for skin irritation.

A typical unwanted hair removal session lasts for 5 minutes per treatment area. The Vectus’s special design includes sapphire tips that shed heat quickly, applying focused light only at the roots of the hair while leaving skin cool. This advanced cooling system offers a comfortable treatment experience with minimal discomfort. Following the treatment, long term results can be expected for up to 9 months.
