VectusTM is the most effective and safest Diode laser to date
These benefits are due to:
All based on the Selective Photothermolysis Extended Theory, designed by Altshuler at Palomar and Rox Anderson at Wellman Institute.
This theory is based on TDT (Thermal Damage Time), which is the time needed to destroy the stem cells surrounding the hair follicle from the heat generated in the hair shaft, loaded with melanin that absorbs the light.
A good example of this situation is varicose vein laser treatment: the chromophore is the blood, but our targets are the vessel walls. The same occurs with hair removal, our targets are the stem cells, but our chromophore is the hair shaft and the matrix, both loaded with pigment.
The hair shaft contains pigments but the stem cells do not, and the only way to destroy them is through the diffusion of heat from the structures that can assimilate light. Therefore, the Extended Theory of Selective Photothermolysis is important in the treatment of targets at a distance from the chromophore.
In brief, the benefits of Vectus™ to the patient are:
Additionally, SKINTEL™ allows users to measure the pigmentation content in the skin before treatment, providing a guide to choosing the energy test employed at home for each case and specific patient.
SkintelTM measures the pigmentation content in the skin before setting the laser hair removal parameters
