Burlington, Mass. - Palomar Medical Technologies has announced the availability of the Palomar Vectus laser for laser hair removal.

The Palomar Vectus laser is designed for high-volume hair removal, providing uniform permanent hair reduction for the widest range of skin and hair types without sacrificing comfort, according to company reports.

The laser features an integrated Skintel Melanin Reader, allowing providers to offer laser hair removal treatments with optimized outcomes tailored to each client's skin type, sun exposure habits and ethnicity.

The laser also features an intelligent user interface, which allows providers to select treatment parameters based on the client's hair density, hair color, hair diameter and Fitzpatrick skin type or Skintel value, Palomar states.

The Vectus laser’s “large spot size allows us to treat male backs or female legs within 20 minutes, and its parameters are optimal for minimizing patient discomfort," says Josefina Royo de la Torre, M.D., an early user of the Palomar Vectus Laser at Instituto Medico Laser in Madrid.
