How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
The Cynosure Apogee Elite laser is one of the most advanced on the market for laser hair removal. With two laser platforms in one—the 755nm Alexandrite laser, and the 1064nm Nd: YAG laser—we can quickly target unwanted hair for faster, less painful removal. The Apogee Elite is equipped with a beam combiner, allowing the delivery of both wavelengths at the same time. We can also switch between wavelengths without having to switch handpieces. Meaning, no matter your skin pigment or hair type, follicles are targeted with the proper wavelengths at all times. The Alexandrite energy is perfect for those with lighter skin tones, while the Nd: YAG energy is safe for hair reduction on darker or tanned skin.
Patient comfort is a priority at Colorado Skin & Vein, and the Apogee Elite uses SmartCool technology, which emits a burst of cooling air to your skin to minimize pain. The laser’s spot size is flexible, making it ideal for quickly treating large or small areas. The faster your treatment, the faster you’ll become hair-free.
