Laser Hair Removal
Plastic surgeon on site providing direct supervision. A safe and effective way to take care of unwanted hair all over the body with no downtime.
The Vectus laser uses a very unique technology known as the Skintel Melanin Reader to ensure the highest level of safety and efficacy.
This is the only FDA cleared melanin reader on the market.
The Skintel measures the exact amount of pigment in the skin surrounding the hair, then selects the safest and most effective laser settings for hair removal.

We recommend 8-10 treatments for most areas but certain areas are treated a bit differently, some are spaced 4-6 weeks apart and some may be 6-8 weeks apart.
Treatment is Performed in-Office
A Single Area Takes Less than 5 Minutes
Hair goes through growth and rest cycles known as anagen, catagen, and telogen phases. Laser hair removal only works on hair that is in the anagen, or growth phase. Hair in a particular area on our bodies is in any of these particular phases on a particular day.
When you come for laser hair removal, only the hair that is in the anagen phase will respond to the treatment. This is why it takes multiple treatment sessions until complete hair reduction can occur.
