At AgelessYou MedSpa, we offer laser hair removal treatments with a powerful laser device called Elite iQ. This sophisticated laser system is leading the industry with its powerful capabilities, versatility, and ability to deliver safe, customized, comfortable, and effective treatments. Whether you’re interested in eliminating hair from your face or body, we can plan your treatments so that you no longer have to rely on at-home hair removal methods to reach your hair-free goals.
Laser Hair Removal With Elite iQ
Elite iQ is changing laser hair removal treatments for the better. Equipped with the industry’s first melanin reader, this system allows us to spot-test an area on the skin before treatment so that we can then customize the laser treatment for each patient based on the level of melanin in their skin.
This feature changes everything and not only enhances the results but allows us to perform treatments that are versatile and diverse. No matter what your hair removal goals are, we can help you reach them.
What Areas Can It Treat?
This laser system can help patients eliminate unwanted facial and body hair from virtually anywhere on the body. Some of the most common areas include the arms, legs, underarms, back, chest, face, and bikini area.
What Happens During a Treatment?
When you come in for your appointment, you’ll be situated in a treatment room, and our laser technician will use the Elite iQ device to target your area of concern. The handpiece will emit laser light bypassing the skin’s surface and instead zoning in on hair follicles to heat them and destroy them. Once the hair follicles are heated, they won’t grow new hair.
How Long Do Treatments Take?
Treatments can take anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes. Your total treatment time will be based on the size of the area you want to treat as well as the number of areas you want to treat. Some patients have multiple hair removal goals, so we schedule treatments accordingly to help them reach those goals in the shortest amount of time. Once we design your treatment plan and learn more about your goals, we can design and schedule your treatments.
Is the Treatment Painful?
This treatment process is comfortable, thanks to the advanced technology within the laser device. Some patients report that the sensation they experience during the session feels similar to a slight warming sensation, while others describe it as similar to the gentle snapping of a rubber band. You don’t need to be concerned about discomfort, as we will take every measure to ensure that you enjoy your treatment experience.
Is There Any Downtime?
There’s no downtime following a laser hair removal treatment. You may notice that the skin appears slightly red and feels warm immediately following your appointment. This is completely normal and is a sensation that will subside within a few hours. It’s very important that you protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun post-treatment since it will be more sensitive after it’s treated with laser light.
Avoiding excess sun exposure and covering your skin or ensuring you wear a high-quality sunscreen will adequately protect you and ensure that you achieve the best results.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Most patients need a series of three to six treatments to achieve their ideal results. The good news is that once you complete your treatments, you’ll be able to achieve and enjoy your results. Treatment plans vary based on the amount of hair that patients want to target and eliminate.
Understanding Hair Growth
Your hair grows in three different stages, and if any of the hairs are not in an active growth phase during the treatment, hair will continue growing, and that hair follicle will remain undamaged despite being targeted by the laser light. For that reason, a few treatments are necessary to achieve ideal results. Once we target all of the hair follicles in your treatment area during an active growth phase, you can move forward and enjoy all of the results of laser hair removal.
What Kind of Results Will I Achieve?
Once you begin your hair removal treatments, you will notice some immediate and gradual results. With every treatment, you will have less hair, and it will far become less dense. With the recommended number of treatments, you can eliminate a significant amount of hair in your treatment area and enjoy permanent results.
Who Is a Treatment Candidate?
If you have excessive or unwanted hair on different areas of your face or body and want to be free of it for good, you may be the perfect candidate for Elite iQ treatments. Other hair removal devices are not as adept as this one because they limit patients, and treatments are only truly effective for those with lighter skin tones and dark hair.
The Elite iQ has changed that former standard and can safely eliminate hair from the face and body of patients with all different skin types and tones. You’ll no longer be excluded from treatment if you have lighter hair or darker skin. The built-in melanin reader is one of the primary reasons why this device is so effective, as it allows us to treat all different patients year-round.
Experience the Elite iQ Difference
Whether you’ve experienced laser hair removal treatments or have always wanted to invest in this effective treatment, we can help you achieve your aesthetic goals during quick and comfortable treatments. Once you experience the Elite iQ difference, you’ll see why it’s a superior choice from other laser devices, as you will be able to enjoy your results long-term.
