Do you have visible veins on your legs or face? Do you avoid wearing shorts, bathing suits, and skirts for fear that people will see the veins that you have been hiding? Do you find yourself wearing heavy makeup, just to cover the veins on your face? If you said yes to any of these questions, you are an ideal candidate for our new laser technology: the Elite+™ producted by Cynosure, the world’s leading suppliers of aesthetic and laser equipment.
For those who struggle with unwanted leg and facial veins or the blush of rosacea, reducing or eliminating the appearance of these conditions can be life-changing.
The Elite+™ is a non-invasive laser system that uses pulses of light to selectively target the blue, purple, and red vessels that comprise various vascular blemishes while sparing surrounding areas, causing the vein to naturally disappear in often as little as one or two visits.
After treatment, the targeted vessels naturally disappear without any surgical assistance. This laser is giving new hope and relief to my patients.”
How Does It Work?
The laser handpiece will deliver light energy into your skin and will be absorbed by the blood within the vein being targeted while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. Once the blood absorbs this energy, the vein will heat up and it will affect the vessel lining. Thus causing the vessel to constrict and eventually fade from view leaving your legs looking clear and as beautiful as ever.
Features of the Technology We Use
The Cynosure Elite+ aesthetic laser utilises Cynosures in-depth knowledge and experience of Alexandrite laser 755nm and Nd:YAG laser wavelengths to provide an array of laser treatments.
Fast: With spot sizes up to 24mm, the Elite+™ laser provides fast treatments, allowing you to resume your normal activities as quickly as possible.
Effective: The Elite+™ uses a proven 1064nm wavelength for effective treatment of leg veins in just a few sessions.
Safe: The Elite+™ system has been in clinical use for many years and has been proven safe in many clinical publications.
Longer pulse durations of up to 300ms precisely match the energy delivered in concert with thermal relaxation time.
Easily switch between wavelengths for different treatments within a single session.
Air-cooling throughout treatments enhance patient comfort and satisfaction.
Deliver exceptional results across all skin types.
What to Expect on the Day of Treatment?
Before your Elite+ vascular treatment, the laser technician will apply a gel to the area being treated. This will help ensure the laser energy is delivered appropriately and will help cool the area during and after the treatment.
The technician will begin the treatment by moving the laser handpiece over your skin, following the length of the vein and pulsing the energy as they go. You will also feel a mild sensation and heat on the skin during the treatment but air cooling will be used to help with any discomfort.
The vessels may undergo immediate graying or blanching, or they may exhibit a slight purple or red color change. The vessels will fully or partially fade in about ten to fourteen days.
