Palomar Vectus Laser
The Palomar Vectus Laser has unique features including a larger treatment tip with advanced contact cooling system, which means pain-free treatments with no downtime. The Vectus Laser also has a FDA-cleared melanin reader, so we can customize treatments to your particular skin and hair type. This dedicated solution for high-volume hair removal provides fast, uniform, and permanent hair reduction for the widest range of skin and hair types. As one of the fastest forms of laser hair removal, the Vectus Laser is great for reducing hair from larger areas. Treatable areas include the back, shoulders, face, underarms, arms, legs, bikini area, and chest, to name just a few.
Cutera Excel HR
The Cutera Excel HR is a dual wavelength laser that can be safely used for laser hair removal on all skin types. The Excel HR laser contains two different lasers in one platform. The long pulsed 1064nm Nd:YAG laser has the ability to treat all skin types (Fitzpatrick I-VI) including patients with darker skin including patients of African ancestry. The Nd:YAG is less suited for patients with lighter and fine hair. The Nd:YAG works best on dark course hair. The 755nm Alexendrite Laser is better suited for lighter skin types with lighter hair and light skin (Fitzpatrick I to IV).
The Cutera Excel HR has a built in sapphire tip that can cool the skin to 4 degrees Celsius. The sapphire cooling tip is in contact with the skin for every pulse. This helps to protect the skin and decreases the discomfort associated by precooling the skin before each laser pulse. Other lasers use may use cold air blown on the skin or they use a spray of cryogen coolant just before the laser pulse.
