Wouldn’t it be great if you never had to pluck, shave, tweeze or wax your hair ever again? A lot of people are victims to unwanted hair.

Moreover, they are also painful and messy.

For women, coarse hair that appears in places that you do not want to, like the neck, the face, the abdomen, the breasts, or the arms, can be treated. This coarse hair looks bad when you wear bathing suits, short skirts and shorts. For men, the tedious task of shaving and trimming of the moustache or beard, and the appearance of hair on the back, shoulders, and the ears can be treated. With the Vasculight Hair-Removal System, annoying hair can be eliminated once and for all.

If you want hair removed on a long-term basis, then you may consider electrolysis. The problem with electrolysis is that it is very slow and can be very painful. In this process, an electrical current is passed through a needle that targets the root of the hair. Its goal is to prevent the hair from growing back. In some cases, repeat treatments are necessary to keep the hair from growing back. Even for smaller areas like the eyebrows, it may be needed. Other risks that the patient has to take are the risk of getting electrocuted, infected or scarred.

Lasers are also being used nowadays to complement electrolysis. When used, permanent hair reduction is quick, easy, safe and effective. 

With the Vasculight Hair-Removal System, pulsed light is used to remove hair and prevent hair from growing back. This technology will allow doctors to customize your treatment. The treatment will suit your needs as close as possible.

The process starts when a cool gel is applied to your skin. Then, a flash of light is filtered through the gel. It penetrates the skin and disables several hair follicles in an instant. When the gel is removed, most of the hair comes off as well. The hair that is left will eventually fall off after a few days.

You will feel a slight tingling sensation when you go through the laser treatment. Patients are usually able to tolerate this. In some cases where the body is more sensitive, topical anaesthetics are sometimes applied.

It is important to take care of the treated area after the cosmetic surgery. You should avoid exposing the area to the sun. Avoid tanning after the treatment. You should not wax, pluck, or use any chemicals for hair removal. You should not apply any acids to the area such as glycolic acids and retinoids. If you can, wear sun cream on the treated area.
