We leverage the power of the Cynosure Elite+ System at our clinic  to deliver exceptional laser treatments, which include skin rejuvenation as well as hair and vascular lesions removal .

What Is Cynosure Elite+?

Cynosure Elite+ is a cutting-edge aesthetic laser used for hair removal, vascular and pigmented lesions treatments. It incorporates two different laser wavelengths called the Alexandrite (755 nm) and Nd: YAG (1064 nm) to deliver superior and versatile results. 
Depending on a patient’s needs, our medical aesthetician may switch between these two lasers to address concerns. 

Cynosure Elite+ Treatments

At NuSQIN Medical Aesthetics Clinic we offer the following Cynosure Elite+ treatments: 

Laser Hair Removal

Compared to waxing, laser hair removal achieves long-lasting results by using heat energy to permanently damage hair follicles.

Skin Rejuvenation

Cynosure Elite+ rejuvenates the skin by shedding the skin’s topmost layer while heating the dermis underneath to boost collagen production. 

Epidermal Pigment

Laser technology heats and shatters pigment without harming the surrounding tissue to produce a more even skin tone.

Photo Aged Skin Correction

Laser treatment helps make photo-aged skin look younger by stimulating collagen production and fibroblast activation. 

Vascular Lesions

Cynosure Elite+ can treat vascular lesions by heating them until they are broken down and subsequently reabsorbed by the body. 

Treatment Areas

The beauty of the Cynosure Elite+ System is in its versatility. Our medical aestheticians use this technology to perform treatments on the following areas:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Décolletage (Chest Area)
  • Arms
  • Hands
  • Feet
  • Underarms
  • Legs and Buttocks
  • Bikini Area
  • Back

How Cynosure Elite+ Works

The Cynosure Elite+ laser works by emitting highly concentrated light energy into the targeted area of the skin. The principle behind this process is selective photothermolysis where the laser specifically targets the pigment (melanin) in hair follicles or skin cells.
For laser hair removal treatments, the laser energy is absorbed by the melanin in the hair, heating and damaging the follicle to prevent future hair growth. In the case of skin rejuvenation, the laser energy targets pigmented lesions, sunspots, or vascular issues so they break down and gradually fade away.
What makes the Cynosure Elite+ laser special is its dual-wavelength technology. This enables it to treat a wide range of skin types safely and effectively. The treatment is virtually painless, and patients typically experience minimal downtime, making it an excellent choice for a wide variety of skin-related needs. 

Benefits of Cynosure Elite+: Results You Can Expect

Cynosure Elite+ helps medical aestheticians deliver industry-leading results. Expect to experience the following benefits when undergoing treatment:

  • Versatility: With the potential to provide everything from hair removal to skin rejuvenation, Cynosure Elite+ has earned its place as a staple in our clinic.
  • Precision & Safety: By compressing two wavelengths into a single laser, Cynosure Elite+ gives our aestheticians the options they need to safely and precisely target problem areas.
  • Minimal Downtime: Cynosure Elite+ technology helps minimize downtime. Expect any minor side effects or post-treatment irritation to last a few days, at most.
  • Quick Treatments: With Cynosure Elite+, most skin rejuvenation procedures take 20-45 minutes. Expect laser hair removal to take an hour at most.
  • Customized Treatments: The ability to quickly switch pulse durations enables aestheticians to customize treatments.
  • Long-Lasting Results: Cynosure Elite+ can permanently reduce unwanted hair and deliver skin rejuvenation results that last.
  • Minimal Discomfort: Cynosure Elite+ treatments enhance patient comfort because of its cooling technology. 

Cynosure Elite+ Laser Treatment Aftercare

There’s no way around it: even the very best lasers can irritate your skin. However, following the right aftercare routine can go a long way toward ensuring any side effects are minimized if you experience them at all. We recommend:

  • Applying a cold compress if redness and bumps persist hours after the procedure
  • Cleanse the affected area with mild soap at least twice daily
  • Avoiding rubbing the affected area during the first 48 hours
  • Avoiding using make-up, lotion, or deodorant for the first 24 hours
  • Reducing sunlight exposure and applying sunscreen if you go outside
  • Refraining from scratching the area to prevent irritation

Potential Side Effects

During treatment, it’s normal to feel a slight tingle or as if a rubber band is being snapped against your skin. Your aesthetician will do whatever they can to ensure the experience is as comfortable as it possibly can be. You may experience the following side effects after treatment:

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Blistering
  • Scarring
  • Hypopigmentation
