For people who are tired of shaving, tweezing, and waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal has become the preferred option—and a beautiful solution. Here at our medspa in Bellevue, we offer the most recent advances in laser hair removal for patients who want to effectively remove hair on the face and body. With our advanced Cynosure Elite system, this treatment is fast with very little discomfort.
During laser hair removal, a laser beam passes through the skin to an individual hair follicle. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth.
Cynosure’s Elite offers two optimal wavelengths in one system. This allows our practitioner to switch between wavelengths during a single procedure and select the most appropriate laser for any given hair or skin type.
The classic 755 nm wavelength has high melanin absorption characteristics and proven long-term results for pigmented lesion removal and hair reduction, permanently reducing hair by an average of 79% after just three treatments.
The 1064nm Nd:YAG wavelength is the safest wavelength for permanent hair reduction on darker skin types and tanned skin.
The Elite laser eliminates unwanted hair safely and effectively. It works by emitting gentle pulses of energy that are directed into the hair follicles. Without harming the surrounding tissue, this energy is absorbed into the targeted follicles and destroys them so that hair growth can no longer occur.
Although a consultation is recommended prior to having laser hair removal, our Elite+ can treat all skin types who would like a permanent reduction of hair.
Most patients describe the treatment, as a series of slight pinpricks to the skin. The majority of laser hair removal patients require no anesthetic, and treatment is easily tolerated. Within 30 minutes the treated area becomes pink or red, and this may last from a few hours to a day, after which it diminishes.
For optimal results, 5-7 treatments are recommended 4-6 weeks apart.
