Laser manufacturer Cynosure has launched the next generation of the Elite+ alexandrite-ND:YAG system that aim to allow for faster treatments with higher max energy.
The new Elite iQ platform utilises Skintel Melanin Reader technology that measures melanin content in order to offer customised laser hair removal treatments and permanently reduce unwanted hair for all skin types. The device also enables practitioners to treat common skin concerns including facial and leg veins, sun damage, facial wrinkles and razor bumps.
Cynosure states that the upgraded workstation also offers an enhanced user interface with a new dashboard design and a built-in treatment guide to help determine hair removal test spot settings, dynamic screen lighting to easily view the active wavelength, high treatment versatility with adjustable pulse width, fluence and repetition rate, and the ability to save settings for future use.
Todd Tillemans, Cynosure chief executive officer said, "The Elite iQ device meets the growing market demand for hair removal and skin revitalisation solutions for men and women across all skin types. At Cynosure, we pride ourselves on anticipating the needs of our customers and their patients and this elevates our industry-leading technology with even greater power, efficiency and safety."
US practitioner Dr Vic Ross of Scripps Clinic, said, "My patients are pleased with their fast and easy laser hair removal sessions thanks to the Elite iQ technology. I hear often that women and men with darker skin types were under the impression they weren't candidates for these types of treatments and the reality is, everyone is a potential candidate I can treat with ease and confidence. The intelligently designed instrument panel, including real-time pigmentation assessment that guides the practitioner in optimal parameter selection, has set my practice apart and has meant even more satisfied patients with fantastic results."
