Laser hair removal with the Cynosure® Elite iQ™ device is a medical treatment that uses a concentrated beam of light (or laser) to remove unwanted hair.
During laser hair removal, a laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (or melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the hair follicles that produce hairs. This damage stops or delays future hair growth.
WHY LASER HAIR REMOVAL IS POPULAR
Laser hair removal eliminates unwanted hair on the legs, armpits, back, chin, chest, and bikini area. The process targets hair follicles only, not your skin. Thanks to Plaza Aesthetics’ investment in new technology, laser removal is now available to all people, regardless of skin tone.
WHAT IS CYNOSURE® ELITE IQ™?
We’re excited to offer the next generation of laser removal: the Elite iQ system. It permanently reduces unwanted hair, creates radiant skin, and also treats common issues like sun damage, wrinkles, and pigmentation.
Elite iQ is a faster, easier, and more effective hair removal treatment than ever before. How? Because Elite iQ treatment uses the new Skintel® melanin reader. It’s the first FDA-cleared technology that matches your exact skin tone, type, and hair texture. The result is personalized hair removal treatment that’s safe, accurate, and comfortable.
Treatment can remove hair from the following areas:
- Bikini area
The Elite iQ laser works by targeting follicles at their root and inhibiting future hair growth. The procedure doesn’t damage the surface of the skin.
Razor burns, red bumps, and ingrown hairs become a thing of the past thanks to this unique and innovative treatment.
How To Prepare For Treatment
Clients will need to attend an initial consultation with a trained skin care professional to discuss their goals. During the consultation, the medical professional will review the client’s medical history, medication use, history of skin disorders or scarring, and past hair removal procedures.
Is The Procedure Painful?
During the procedure, clients may experience mild discomfort that feels like getting snapped with a rubber band. Overall, the procedure is well-tolerated and the level of discomfort depends on individual preferences.
Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
Laser hair removal is permanent. As soon as the hair follicle is destroyed, it is unable to produce new hair. It’s important to note that this treatment is only effective on actively growing hair. Follicles not in the active growing phase during treatment will continue to grow hair, requiring a subsequent visit.
How Many Treatments Are Necessary?
As with all hair removal treatments, permanent hair removal requires a series of Cynosure® Elite iQ™ treatments. Most clients will need between six to eight treatments to see full results.
How Are Treatments Spaced?
Treatments are spaced four to eight weeks apart, depending on the body part being treated. The face, bikini, and underarms require four weeks, and all other areas require eight weeks.
