Hair, Veins, Wrinkles: Elite+ Is Your Go-to Laser Treatment for Them All

Laser Hair Removal, Hair, Laser, Skin Treatment

Lasers have become a popular treatment option for many cosmetic concerns, including wrinkles and fine lines, sun damage, unsightly veins, and even unwanted hair. More than a million people have laser hair removal treatments each year, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, and over 700,000 have laser treatments for visible veins and age-related changes in their skin. Lasers are safe and effective, which makes them a great option for many people. And thanks to the Elite+ laser system, laser treatment is also faster and more convenient, which means it’s easier than ever to fit your treatment into your schedule.

How the Elite+ works

The Elite+ laser system offers two big advantages over most other types of laser treatment systems. First, the Elite+ uses dual-wavelength technology, which means it features two different types of energy that can be combined and adjusted based on the type of treatment that’s being performed, as well as the patient's treatment goals, skin type, and other factors. The use of two different wavelengths allows our team to provide truly customized treatments that are designed to be effective, right from the start. Using two wavelengths also means you can get the results you’re looking for in less time, with one treatment instead of having two separate treatments from two different laser systems.

That’s the first way the Elite+ makes treatment more convenient and more effective. The second is its spot size. A laser’s spot size refers to the size of the area that can be treated effectively with each burst of laser energy. You can think of it kind of like a flashlight beam. When the beam from the flashlight is very narrow, you can only light up a tiny, narrow, restricted area; with a wider beam, more light is cast on the area. It’s essentially the same with a laser beam: A smaller spot size means less area is being treated with each burst, and that means you’ll need more bursts (and more time) to get results. Because the Elite+ uses a larger spot size, more tissue is treated with each burst without losing effectiveness, so you can still get great results but with less treatment time.

Both of these benefits combine to enable our team to treat a wider range of issues, including:

That kind of versatility is what’s made the Elite+ system so popular among both patients and practitioners.

How Elite+ works

Elite+ laser treatments are performed right in our office, and there’s no downtime afterward, so you can go right back to your regular activities once your treatment session is complete. Plus, the Elite+ laser system integrates a special cooling feature to keep your skin comfortable and undamaged throughout your treatment. Here’s how it works to get you the results you want.

Removal of unwanted hair

The Elite+ laser energy targets each hair, transmitting powerful laser energy to the shaft of the hair where it’s absorbed. The pigments in the hair carry the heat energy down to the root and the cells that produce hair and cause hair to grow. As these cells are heated, they’re destroyed, which means they can’t produce new hair in the future. 

Lines, wrinkles, and age spots

The Elite+ adjustable laser energy is designed to penetrate to the deeper layers of skin where age-related changes occur. During your treatment, the laser heat triggers natural healing processes which in turn cause your skin to replace old, damaged tissue with healthy new tissue. Plus, the laser promotes the development of collagen, an important component of skin that helps it feel and look more resilient and more youthful.

Facial and leg veins

During a vein treatment, the Elite+ laser energy targets malfunctioning vessels, heating the vein lining so the damaged veins collapse. Over time, your body absorbs and eliminates the damaged tissue while redirecting blood flow to other veins in the area.

Treatment with the Elite+ system is safe, effective, and quick, making it easier to get the results you want without interfering with your lifestyle. To learn more about Elite+ treatments at Purple Lotus Aesthetics, book an appointment online today.
