Unwanted Hair? No Problem!
Offering some of the most effective and gentle hair reduction available on the market, the Elite+ lives up to its name. Treatment is safe, comfortable, and effective, and works on the widest range of skin types and hair colors to reduce hair growth. The Elite+ can be adjusted to use a customized proportion of the high-powered 755nm Alexandrite and safe-for-dark-skin 1064nm Nd:YAG wavelengths to achieve fast, predictable results for nearly any patient.
The Elite+ has several advantages over older hair removal lasers including:
- Shorter treatment sessions: an extra-large spot size lets us treat more skin with each pulse, dramatically reducing total treatment time
- Fewer treatments: Elite+ has been shown to reduce unwanted hair by up to 79% after just 3 treatments.
- Safe, effective treatment for light or dark skin: 1064nm Nd:YAG is considered the safest wavelength for dark or tanned skin, making laser hair removal an option for more patients
During your treatment, the laser will deliver a brief, intense beam of light that will be absorbed by the hair follicle and converted to heat. This effectively damages the follicle, stopping further hair growth from occurring. Elite+ leaves surrounding tissue unaffected and unharmed.
Enjoy pain-free laser hair removal with add-on option PRO-NOX™
Every patient deserves a comfortable experience, so we now offer an add-on option to use PRO-NOX™ during laser treatments and other medical spa services.
What is PRO-NOX™?
PRO-NOX™ is a self-administered nitrous oxide (laughing gas) system that allows you to be in full control of your comfort. If at any point you feel you need something to take the edge off, simply breathe through the PRO-NOX™ mouthpiece for instant relief from pain and anxiety.
Unlike oral pain medication, PRO-NOX™ takes effect in seconds, but these effects wear off minutes after your treatment, leaving no trace of the chemical in your body. You can safely drive and return to your normal routine without worrying about side effects.
Ask us about adding PRO-NOX™ to your treatment at your consultation, or contact us for more information!

Even Out Skin Tone
The Elite+ doesn’t just excel at removing unwanted hair, it also offers the fastest and most powerful Alexandrite laser for pigmented lesion removal. During treatment, the 755nm Alexandrite laser wavelength is easily absorbed into the pigmented lesion, allowing us to selectively target and eliminate hyperpigmentation without burning or harming the surrounding skin.
Your treatment will only take a few minutes, and most patients see dramatic results in just a few treatments. After your treatment, there will be some changes to the treated area. The lesion may turn darker and start to break up at the skin’s surface before gradually falling off over the course of two to six weeks depending on the treatment area.
Clear Away Spider Veins
Unsightly veins on the face, legs and body are no match for the Elite+ laser. The 1064nm Nd:YAG wavelength is particularly effective at treating red, blue and purple spider veins and vascular lesions, coagulating the vessels and effectively causing them to retreat from the skin’s surface. The result is smoother, clearer, and younger-looking skin.
Spider vein treatment with the Elite+ typically takes less than 30 minutes. The built-in cooling system helps us deliver the targeted laser energy without overheating the skin’s surface, protecting the skin and enhancing patient comfort. Improvements are noticeable after just one treatment, and many patients need just a few treatments to achieve their desired results.
