The Vectus laser is made by Cynosure, the company that received the first FDA clearance ever issued for laser hair removal in 1997. Cynosure continues to be at the forefront of hair removal technology with the Vectus laser, the highest volume laser for hair reduction available today.
The Skintel™ Melanin Reader™
The Skintel™ Melanin Reader™ is exclusive to the Vectus laser. It is the only melanin reader that has been awarded FDA clearance at this time. The major advantage of having a melanin reader is that it allows hair removal treatment providers to precisely tailor treatments to their patients. In the past, most laser hair removal systems only worked effectively with certain types of hair, primarily dark course hair on people with darker skin. The Skintel™ Melanin Reader™ determines the level of pigment that a patient's skin contains, and this information can then be used to select the ideal laser settings for removal of any type of hair and skin. Reading the melanin levels is so important because the laser focuses on the melanin at the hair's root. Knowing how much pigment is there allows for a level of precision removal that has never before been possible with other hair removal lasers.
Advanced Contact Cooling
The laser tips are created from sapphire. These laser tips deliver Advanced Contact Cooling to keep the skin cool. This allows patients to be comfortable during the hair removal, a sharp contrast to the older hair removal lasers that greatly overheated the skin. Thanks to the uniform beam of the Vectus laser, the hair follicles are effectively coagulated. This means that the laser can make fewer passes and that there is less need for overlap.
Mass Hair Removal, the Easy Way
The Vectus laser has the largest spot size of any hair removal laser today. This allows for faster treatment, even in very large areas, like the back. Treatment of even the largest areas may take as little as 15 minutes. Once removal is complete, patients can resume their regular activities right away, with no need for a difficult or complicated recovery period.
