As some of you may already know, Bombshell works closely with Dr. Travis Shaw M.D as Bombshell’s medical director. If you’re a long-time Bombshell client you may have met him at one of our Botox and Bubbly Parties where he educated us about the different types of fillers and botox that he uses—but botox is far from the only thing he offers!
Recently we have begun providing laser hair removal in his office. Lucky for us (and our clients!) we get to use some cool new technology to provide you kittens with a more permanent smoothness than waxing can provide. At Dr. Shaw’s office our technicians have access to the Palomar Vectus Laser. This is one of the fastest lasers in the Richmond Area, and has a really cool feature called The Skintel Melanin Reader. This feature is fantastic because it uses a reader to check the melanin levels (the pigment) of the skin and sends the information to the laser. Once the laser has received the information, it selects the safest and most effective setting for hair removal. The Palomar Vectus laser is the ONLY laser on the market that has a feature like this that is FDA approved. This is really great to us because it means with the help of the Skintel Melanin Reader the likelihood of hyperpigmentation is lowered significantly.
Worried about pain? Don’t be dollface! Our models compared the feeling of the laser to being plucked pretty hard with a rubber band. While this may not be the most pleasant sensation, it is definitely not a deal breaker, and well worth the smooth results!
