If you’re tired of spending time or money on weekly at-home hair removal devices, tools, and products, there is another option. At Eternal Beauty Skin Care Clinic, we offer laser hair removal treatments with the Vectus® laser, a device by Cynosure® that can quickly and safely eliminate unwanted hair virtually anywhere on the body. After your treatments, you can enjoy all the benefits of healthier and smoother skin.
What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a professional treatment that uses laser energy to target the source of hair growth at the follicular level. It’s an effective treatment option for men and women looking for a permanent solution for unwanted hair on the face or body.
It’s an investment in smooth and hair-free skin and can save you time and money long-term. During the treatments, we use a laser device with advanced technology specifically designed for hair removal to heat each hair follicle in the designated treatment area to prevent future hair growth. It’s safe, quick, and effective.
The Vectus® Laser by Cynosure®
The Vectus laser is equipped with a large spot size to address larger surface treatment areas in less time than it would take other devices to perform the same treatment.
It delivers a uniform treatment, and it is equipped with Advanced Contact Cooling™, a device feature that maintains a comfortable skin temperature throughout the treatment to ensure patient comfort. It also features a Skintel® Melanin Reader™ that allows for a customizable treatment on patients with all different skin types and tones.
What Are the Treatment Benefits?
Patients who choose laser hair removal love their results. The treatment offers many benefits. Not only are treatments quick and effective, but they’re comfortable since the device has a built-in cooling mechanism.
A little-known benefit of laser hair removal is that aside from eliminating unwanted hair by using laser light energy to do so, it simultaneously delivers a skin-rejuvenating treatment. The laser energy can increase natural collagen and elastin production in the treatment area, resulting in tighter and healthier-looking skin. Other treatment benefits include the following:
- Results appear relatively quickly after a treatment
- There’s no social downtime
- Treatments only take a few minutes from start to finish
- The device is safe and FDA-approved
- We can create customized treatment plans for each patient’s needs
What Can It Treat?
We can use this laser device to remove hair virtually anywhere on the body. We offer full-body treatment plans and the option to target specific areas based on your treatment goals. During your consultation, we can create a unique treatment plan that includes each area you want to treat. Treating multiple areas during a session can reduce treatment times and help you achieve your treatment goals that much faster. Out treatment options include the following:
- Full face

- Cheeks or sideburns

How Does It Work?
Laser hair removal is such an effective treatment because it treats hair growth at the source. The device delivers powerful laser light energy, which is heat energy, directly to the hair follicles and does so without harming the surrounding tissue. The light energy will heat each hair follicle, damaging it so it can no longer grow new hair.
If, at some point, the hair follicle does continue growing hair, that hair will be very thin and virtually invisible. Laser hair removal devices can target follicles in an active growth phase. At the time of your treatment, some follicles may not be actively growing hair, which is why multiple sessions are necessary for optimal results.
How Should I Prepare for My Treatment?
Before your scheduled treatment, you must avoid sun exposure, tanning, or getting sunburned. If possible, arrive at your appointment with clean skin, free of lotions or products. If that isn’t an option, we can clean your skin before beginning the session.
Is There Any Downtime?
There’s no social downtime after a Vectus laser treatment. You will need to be mindful of your skin as the treatment area will be more sensitive immediately following your session. You’ll need to avoid any products that could irritate the area for the first few days and avoid sun exposure. We will provide detailed instructions about caring for your skin after your treatment to ensure quick healing.
When Will I See the Results?
You can expect results within the first few weeks of your session. The hair in the treatment area will begin to shed, a normal and necessary part of the process. You’ll enjoy smooth, hair-free skin indefinitely.
How Long Will My Results Last?
After your treatment is over, expect long-lasting results. This treatment is intended to deliver permanent results. However, hormonal changes and other factors can cause hair follicles to begin growing hair in the future, so if you see additional hair growth, you can schedule a maintenance treatment, and we can target those areas and prevent regrowth.
Am I a Good Candidate?
The best candidates for laser hair removal are patients who want smoother, hairless skin and no longer want to shave, tweeze, wax, or invest time and money in at-home hair removal or even professional waxing treatments.
The Vectus laser is a safe option for patients with all skin types and tones, so if you’re interested in this treatment, we can schedule a consultation to give you more details, confirm your eligibility, and then create a customized treatment plan and help you achieve smoother, hair-free skin in just a few treatment sessions.
