FORT MYERS, Fla. (Feb. 18, 2014) – Dr. Patrick Flaharty, M.D., of Azul Cosmetic Surgery and Medical Spa announces that the practice has added the latest in laser hair removal technology.Azul’s new Vecuts™ 800 Laser Hair Removal System from Cynosure is the first instrument of its kind in Southwest Florida and makes hair removal much quicker with less discomfort for patients.

“Hair removal is the third largest market for cosmetic procedures, following BOTOX® and fillers,” said Dr. Flaharty. “We pride ourselves on being the ultimate resource regarding the latest techniques and technologies available for both surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic rejuvenation.”

The Vectus™ Laser uses optimized technology to provide fast, uniform, permanent hair reduction for the widest range of skin and hair types without sacrificing comfort. Featuring the largest spot size and most uniform beam profile available, the Vectus™ laser allows providers to quickly treat unwanted hair, even in the largest areas such as a back, in less than five minutes.

Sapphire treatment tips with Advanced Contact CoolingSM help protect the epidermis and maintain clients’ comfort throughout treatment, while Photon RecyclingSM and the uniform beam profile allow for the most thorough coagulation of hair follicles, reducing the need for multiple, overlapping passes. The Vectus™ Laser features the integrated Skintel™ Melanin Reader™, the only FDA-cleared melanin reader, helping providers to more safely offer optimized hair-removal treatments tailored to each client’s skin type, lifestyle and ethnicity.
