Elite Laser Q & A

by Alexandros Giannakakos, MD

What is the Elite+™ laser system?

The Elite+ is a state-of-the-art dual-wavelength workstation that uses lasers to create powerful results on your skin without pain or discomfort. Because the system’s heavily-tested wavelengths are considered the gold standard for many types of skin care issues, you can feel confident that your treatment is going to be quick, safe, and entirely effective.

Which issues can the Elite+™ workstation treat?

Dr. Giannakakos and his team use Elite+ to treat several aesthetic skin concerns, by:

  • Removing unwanted hair
  • Treating dark spots or hyperpigmentation
  • Reducing veins in the face or legs
  • Minimizing wrinkles

Depending on your needs and your specific treatment plan, Dr. Giannakakos can potentially treat several different issues during the same appointment.  

How does Elite+™ treat pigmentation or dark spots?

Dark age spots are often the result of sun damage. They develop as your skin produces melanin, a dark pigment, to protect your skin. Melanin is supposed to disperse gradually as your skin heals after sun exposure, but as you age, melanin tends to stay in place and causes stubborn dark spots.

Certain types of skin cells absorb the Elite+ workstation’s laser heat energy. This causes melanin to break up, forcing your body to clear it away gradually. What’s left behind is vibrant, younger-looking skin in as little as one treatment.  

How does Elite+™ treat the appearance of veins?

Elite+ uses revolutionary laser technology to gently send waves of energy down into varicose veins, spider veins, or any other unsightly visible vein or vessel. After your blood absorbs the energy, your body will slowly destroy the targeted vein.

Blood recirculates to other healthier veins, while the treated vein closes up and eventually disappears. Over time, your skin’s natural, smoother skin tone resurfaces.

Because the Elite+ laser has dual wavelengths, it’s known for being more effective than traditional single-wavelength systems. Dr. Giannakakos can treat finer veins on your face, or even thicker varicose veins on your legs.

If you want to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and veins, treat dark spots, or rid yourself of body hair, book a consultation with Alex Giannakakos, MD, online or call the clinic today.
