Our Aesthetic Nurses are excited to offer the new Elite MPX™ laser system for optimal hair reduction. This sophisticated hair removal platform provides faster, more comfortable treatments that are effective for a wide range of skin types. Because of the Elite MPX's versatility, our clients enjoy custom-tailored treatments that provide better results.
Other than a warm or tingling sensation, this procedure produces very little discomfort. For sensitive areas, a topical anesthetic may be used, but thanks to the Elite's built-in cooling system, most people are comfortable without it. Each session takes about 30 minutes, and patients can sit back and relax while they look forward to saying goodbye to razors, tweezers and waxing kits.
Recovery and Results
Your recovery from laser hair removal should be quick with most patients experiencing only slight redness and swelling for 1 or 2 days. You will be asked to avoid shaving, tanning or sun exposure for about 3 days to help prevent skin irritation. You will notice smoother skin in the weeks that follow as the treated hair gradually falls out.
A series of 4 to 8 laser hair removal sessions is usually all that's needed to permanently reduce unwanted hair. With each subsequent session, you will notice your hair becoming thinner and more sparse. Over time, you will find the need for other methods of hair removal unnecessary, but many people benefit from occasional "touch up" treatments.
The Elite MPX laser system includes an integrated interface so it can also be used for IPL photofacial procedures. In addition, our medspa services include Fraxel® laser skin treatments.
