Why Mill Creek Skin & Laser?
We only use medical grade state-of-the-art technology that is FDA approved.
The Elite MPX by Cynosure, a leading developer and manufactuer of light and laser light-based aesthetic treatment systems, is considered to be the most advanced laser for hair removal on the market today.
Its patented MultiPlex™ dual wavelength technology helps you achieve permanent hair reduction by delivering customized laser hair removal treatments according to skin and hair type.
The Elite MPX, which incorporates Cynosure’s patented MultiPlex sequencing technology, is a highly versatile laser aesthetic workstation that combines two gold standard wavelengths in one system: the 755 nm Alexandrite laser and the 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser, with the capability of using them individually, switching between them, or blending them with the MultiPlex sequencing technology, resulting in customized laser hair removal treatments to a wider range of patients of any skin type.
MultiPlex™ dual wavelength technology
By sequentially emitting dual wavelengths, Elite MPX provides safer and more effective treatments than single-wavelength systems. For patients, that means greater satisfaction.
Now with latest Elite MPX, sequential pulsing-whether it’s Alexandrite/Nd:YAG or Nd:YAG/Alexandrite- will fine tune laser hair removal treatments and eliminate the FINE hairs.
The Elite MPX is using 18 mm spot size, which enable laser have deeper and stronger penetration therefore achieve more effective results compared with 15 mm spot size on Classic Elite.
Zimmer Integrated Cooling System
At Mill Creek Skin & Laser, client comfort is one of our top priorities. Our laser hair removal treatments incorporate the Zimmer Integrated cooling system maximizing client comfort and minimizing side effects. The Zimmer provides a continuous flow of chilled air that protects the tissue and skin.
How does laser hair removal work?
The Elite MPX laser attacks the hair follicle to completely destroy it – making hair regrowth in the targeted area impossible.
Unlike electrolysis, which involves injecting a needle into each and every hair follicle, the Elite laser emits a powerful beam of light that passes through the skin and targets many follicles at once.
This means instead of spending months or even years getting electrolysis treatments, patients can now permanently solve their unwanted hair problems in significantly less time. Laser hair removal treatments are faster, safer and more effective.
How many treatments are required?
The number of treatments is generally determined by the amount of hair, phase of hair growth, area of the body, skin color, hair color and coarseness. Generally, we recommend 4 – 8 treatments at 4 to 6 week intervals between treatments.
Does it hurt?
When being treated with the Elite™ Aesthetic Laser, you may experience a slight prickly or light stinging sensation. Remember that everyone is different and what one person considers bothersome another may not mind at all. It all depends on individual sensitivity or tolerance to the stimulation. Most people tolerate the treatment just fine.
Are there any side effects?
After the treatment, redness and some slight swelling may occur, typically lasting anywhere from 12 hours to 48 hours.
