What to expect
- The area to be treated must be tan free including free of tanning products.
- The treatment area will be cleaned.
- The practitioner will use the Skintel melanin reader in the area to be treated and adjust the settings according to your specific skin type and treatment protocol.
- The practitioner will then guide the Elite iQ handpiece and cooling device over the treatment area.
- The handpiece will emit beams of laser energy which are absorbed by thread veins causing them to collapse.
- Most people say it’s mildly uncomfortable and feels like a hot rubber band flicking against the skin.
- The treated area will become raised for a few days.
- Over the following weeks the thread veins will fade and disappear.
- It will take 8-10 weeks for the final outcome to be achieved.
