Elite+ Q & A
What is Elite+?
The Elite+ is an aesthetics system from industry leader Cynosure®. The Elite+ system treats multiple conditions and concerns, including:
- Hair removal
- Vascular lesion reduction or removal, including veins and birthmarks
- Pigment reduction or removal, including age spots and freckles
- Wrinkle reduction
The Elite+ system is a dual-wavelength system that offers unparalleled power and speed for a variety of aesthetic services. It includes a 755nm Alexandrite laser and a 1064 nm Nd: YAG laser, both highly advanced lasers that can perform a variety of aesthetic treatments.
How is Elite+ customizable?
Dr. Aina-Babalola chose the Elite+ system for many reasons, including the fact that it’s highly customizable based on patient need. One or both lasers can be used during treatment, She uses the laser wavelength, or a combination of wavelengths, whatever is best suited for your skin type. Even very dark-skinned patients who may not be good candidates for other laser treatments often do very well with Elite+ treatments.
Dr. Aina-Babalola can switch between wavelengths during your treatment if needed. The 755 nm wavelength is often the ideal choice for melanin absorption if you have pigmented lesions, while the 1064 nm wavelength is often ideal for hair removal, even on dark skin. It’s also typically the one Dr. Aina-Babalola uses for wrinkle reduction.
The Elite+ also offers up to seven unique spot sizes, so the treatment is adjustable according to the size and location of the treatment area. The laser delivers a high amount of concentrated energy in short pulses, which gives you the results you want, faster than other lasers can do it.
How do I prepare for Elite+ treatment?
Although the Elite+ can treat any type of skin, it’s still best to protect your skin as much as possible prior to your treatment. Dr. Aina-Babalola advises you regarding recommended preparation, which may include avoiding the sun, acid-based skin treatments, and hair removal methods other than shaving.
If you’re taking a medication that increases your photosensitivity (light sensitivity), such as some antibiotics, Dr. Aina-Babalola may recommend waiting until you’re finished with the course of medication. Sometimes, you’ll simply need a spot skin test to make sure your medication won’t cause a skin reaction.
