Using the Cynosure’s Elite, the most comprehensive laser hair removal system available today. Since it’s designed for all skin types, our staff can treat the broadest range of clients with less discomfort. In addition, the system is optimized for the effective treatment of facial and leg veins, as well as benign epidermal pigmented lesions.
The Elite removes unwanted hair with unsurpassed efficacy and client comfort. That’s because its revolutionary technology combines two optimal wavelengths in one system: the 755-nm Alexandrite laser and the 1064-nm Nd:YAG laser.
Since it can switch between wavelengths during a single procedure, we can select the most appropriate laser for any given hair or skin type. Our staff can also perform multiple procedures on the same client during the same visit. What’s more, we are able to administer treatments in significantly less time than with a single-wavelength product.
The 755-nm wavelength has high melanin absorption characteristics and proven long-term results for permanent hair reduction and pigmented lesion removal.
The high-powered 1064-nm Nd:YAG is the safest wavelength for permanent hair reduction on darker skin types and tanned skin. It is also the wavelength of choice for the treatment of facial and leg veins—the most common form of vascular lesions.
The Elite delivers high fluence from large spot sizes-ensuring deeper penetration, faster treatment sessions, and optimal results.
Unlike equipment with predetermined parameters, the Elite includes a variety of spot sizes and adjustable pulse durations—allowing customized treatments to accommodate your specific needs.
The best candidates for laser hair removal are people who want a long-term solution for removing body hair. This treatment is non-invasive and will require more than one session. Before considering this treatment, be aware that results are different for everyone.
Unlike other laser hair removal treatments, Cynosure’s Elite is suitable for all skin types. This hair removal system is effective on light skin to dark skin.
People with light blonde, white, grey, or red hair may not benefit from a laser hair removal treatment. These types of hair colors do not have sufficient pigment to attract heat from a laser device.
Getting the best results from laser hair removal is all about the right preparation. Avoid plucking, waxing, or bleaching your selected area for treatment at least six weeks before your appointment. The target root and pigment of the hair should be preserved for the laser to work at its finest.
Be sure to stay away from tanning sessions and heavy sun exposure four weeks before your laser hair removal session to avoid damaging your skin during treatment. Always use sunscreen with at least SPF 30.
Take a break from chemical peels, laser resurfacing, and dermabrasion at least four weeks before your appointment. These treatments can risk skin damage when combined with a laser hair removal session. Consult with our experts to learn more do’s and don’ts before your laser hair removal.
