Elite + Laser Hair Removal
CSNY Cosmetic is pleased to offer the most advanced, cutting-edge treatment for laser hair removal available on the market today.
Cynosure is the world’s largest laser manufacturer, and is widely known as the gold standard in cosmetic laser systems.
The Cynosure Elite + is the newest generation of Elite Lasers, and with its new 18mm hand-piece, our aestheticians can produce faster and more effective results than ever before.
What Makes the Elite + Laser Different?
The Elite + Laser has revolutionized the laser hair removal industry by combing two technologies in one device: the Alexandrite laser and Nd:YAG.
The Elite + Laser works by emitting gentle pulses of energy that are directed into the hair follicles, without harming the surrounding tissue. This energy is absorbed into the targeted follicles and destroys them. Inflamed or bumpy skin caused by ingrown hairs from shaving and waxing will be a thing of the past.
This combination of lasers allows the aesthetician to switch wavelengths, utilizing the most appropriate laser for the patient’s hair or skin type. The Elite + provides the ultimate in treatment customization, plus allows multiple areas to be treated at the same time.
The Elite + is the most comprehensive hair removal system available today and is safe for use on all skin types and colors. Each customized treatment produces long term results and faster treatment sessions.
For best results, we recommend multiple treatments, as some hair follicles have growth cycles at different times.
THERE ARE THREE PHASES OF HAIR GROWTH — ANAGEN (ACTIVE), CATAGEN (REGRESSION) AND TELOGEN (RESTING).
Laser technology is designed to treat hair in the Anagen growth phase. Additional factors, including age, ethnicity, weight, hormones, diet, medication and metabolism, influence hair growth and play a role in the location, thickness and resilience of your hair.
The Elite + can treat the following areas:
• BIKINI LINE
• WHOLE BODY
ELITE + LASER TREATMENT OF FACIAL AND LEG VEINS
Facial and leg veins are common conditions for many of our patients.
The Elite + Laser can remove these veins and restore your skin to a smooth, clear appearance.
The Elite + Laser emits a prescribed level of energy to the affected vein, precisely targeting the problem area without damaging the surrounding tissue. After treatment is complete, the vein will gradually disappear.
Facial and leg vein treatments with the Elite + Laser typically last between 10 and 20 minutes, depending on the size and location of treatment area. Side effects may include redness or swelling at the treatment site, but this condition is temporary and usually resolves itself in a matter of hours.
Patients can resume normal activities immediately after the procedure.
ELITE LASER + TREATMENT OF PIGMENTED LESIONS
Pigmented lesions are dark growths on the skin such as moles and age spots. Some spots may be a different color like blue, purple, black or brown. They are typically found on skin that is frequently exposed to the sun, like the face and hands. These benign pigmented lesions can be effectively removed by an aesthetician using the Elite + Laser.
The light pulses emitted by the Elite + Laser are absorbed by melanin-containing skin cells, with little impact made on surrounding tissue. The targeted cells will begin to disintegrate and are removed naturally by the body. The Elite + Laser treatment produces only mild discomfort in most patients, with no downtime.
The number of Elite + Laser sessions varies based on the size and depth of the lesion being treated. The majority of our patients see visible improvement after one to two sessions, but typically require five or six to achieve optimal results. These sessions are generally scheduled at four to six week intervals.
Elite + FAQ
Q: BECAUSE THE ELITE + HAS A LARGER SPOT SIZE, WILL TREATMENTS BE MORE DISCOMFORTING?
