Vascular Treatment (Elite+)
The Elite iQ laser employs a wavelength of Nd:Yag 1064 nm that is strongly attracted to any vascularity and overall redness within the skin.
This strong attraction to the redness within the skin allows the laser energy to absorb the vessel wall, which will then heat up the vessels and cause the vessels to constrict. Once treated, the vessels will be removed internally without creating injury to the surrounding skin.
This laser can also heat the deeper layers of the skin (the dermis) where you will find collagen and elastin and where all our vessel network lies. It comfortably heats the dermis and small vessels to create small controlled thermal injuries that reduce overall redness and stimulates collagen and elastin. This in effect reduces the look of enlarged pores and improve skin rejuvenation.
This treatment is suitable for many skin types. A skin consultation is highly recommended prior to any treatment.
A course of treatments may be recommended for effective results.
Take control of your skin at any age, and get the results you want.
Patients describe a range of sensations, from tingling to the snap of a rubber band, as the laser treatment is administered.
Since there is little to no downtime, you can return to your daily activities immediately. Your doctor will provide you with post-treatment care instructions.
To achieve optimal benefits, patients typically have multiple treatments, scheduled 3-4 weeks apart, though this varies depending on a number of factors. Your doctor can discuss a treatment plan that’s right for you.
