Benefits of Elite IQ

How Elite IQ Works

Before beginning your laser hair removal procedure, you must ensure the treatment area is clean-shaven. During your appointment, the Skintel melanin reader measures your skin and adjusts the settings according to your skin type. The ergonomic handpiece glides over the skin, emitting beams of laser energy. The hair follicles absorb the energy as heat, which kills the hair follicle(s).

Over time, patients notice a gradual improvement. We recommend multiple sessions for optimal results. The precise number of treatments depends on each person. If you need to cover a larger surface area, you may need more treatments to see a promising outcome. Sessions typically take half an hour to complete.

Elite IQ vs Other Hair Removal Options*

By choosing Elite IQ for long-lasting hair reduction, you use the most advanced technology. An FDA-approved melanin scanner assesses your skin’s normal pigmentation to adjust the treatment accordingly. Along with hair removal, patients enjoy Cynosure’s Elite IQ for its great versatility. The laser can help improve skin concerns like veins, wrinkles, sun damage, and more.

Cost of Elite IQ Hair Removal

Elite IQ hair removal costs vary depending on the treatment area and how many sessions you’ll need. In general, most patients need 3-6 treatments spaced a few weeks apart to see impressive results. The price also depends on your chosen provider, geographic location, and your specialist’s expertise.

Depending on where you go for Elite IQ treatments, you may be able to lower costs by purchasing packages that include multiple sessions instead of paying for each session separately.

Does Elite IQ Laser Hair Removal Hurt?

Most patients do not experience pain during their Elite IQ sessions. But the discomfort level varies for everyone. In general, people describe the sensation as similar to a rubber band snapping on the skin.

What Is Elite IQ’s Recovery Like?

After the laser hair removal sessions, it is normal to experience slight redness and irritation at the treatment site(s). These effects are temporary and subside after some time. Other than this, there is no downtime required. Patients can return to their daily routines after their appointments.

It is crucial for patients to avoid exposing their skin to UV light for at least 14 days post-treatment. We also recommend not shaving the area for 72 hours and not excessively scrubbing for about a week.

How Long Do Elite IQ Results Last?*

The results of Elite IQ are long-lasting. Even after the initial treatment, your hair will grow back slower and thinner than before. This means you will have fewer hairs to deal with each time you shave, wax, or pluck. After completing your treatment plan, you will enjoy bare and silky smooth skin for years. As with any cosmetic treatment, the exact length of time differs for each person.*

Is this treatment right for me?

You can use the Elite iQTM device safely on your face, back, chest, arms, underarms, legs, and waist line. It is safe for all skin types.
Talk to your doctor to find out if Elite iQTM treatments are right for you.
