Treat All Skin Types

Elite MPX gives you the advantages of two gold standard wavelengths – the 755 nm Alexandrite laser and 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser – in one system. These wavelengths have proven long-term results for pigmented lesion removal and hair reduction.

Multiplex Makes It Easier

I'm the collapsible content. By default I'm closed, but you can click the header to open me.The 755nm Alexandrite is great at treating lighter skinned clients (i.e., skin types I & II) and the 1064nm YAG is the choice for darker skinned clients (skin types V & VI). But often those clients in the middle can present unique challenges.

Cynosure’s exclusive MultiPlex technology makes it easier to treat these clients. MultiPlex sequentially delivers Alex and YAG to provide customized treatments for ‘The Middle’, providing treatments that are faster and more effective than single-wavelength treatments.

And because Multiplex allows you to select wavelength combinations (Alex/YAG, YAG/Alex) and adjust pulse durations, Multiplex also provides great treatment flexibility for lighter and darker skin types as well. Multiplex means greater customization for each client - and greater control for you.

Also have Zimmer’s SmartCool® proven air cooling technology which make the treatments almost Pain FREE.Treat All Skin Types

Which treatment works best for me?

Your technician will advise you as to which treatment is best suited for your skin type. In general, most clients can be treated with Cynosure, however, if you have a darker skin type (Asians, Mediterranean, Latin American), then YAG laser may be a safer and more effective treatment option.

About YAG and Alex Laser Hair Removal

YAG laser ( For all Skin types), the client should avoid sun exposure 5-7 days before treatment and one week after treatment, including the use of tanning beds or tanning products, such as creams, lotions and sprays.

Alex laser (Should use on fair skin without sun exposure) avoid sun exposure for at least four weeks before treatment, during the course of treatment and at least one week after treatment.

Avoid plucking, waxing and electrolysis. These hair removal methods can disturb the hair follicle and interfere with laser hair removal. Shaving is OK, day before treatment or day of the treatment and shaving protect from potentially causing burns.

What areas can be treated?

Laser hair removal is a safe, fast, and effective alternative for dealing with unwanted hair and is safe enough to be used on any part of the body (e.g., face, neck, underarms, bikini line, legs, arms). We commonly treat ingrown hairs (pseudo folliculitis barbae) on the face and neck. This condition is commonly seen in young men, and presents as an acne like eruption and scarring. Excessive hair growth on the face and neck of females maybe due to hormonal imbalances such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. Depending on the circumstances and for best results, consult with your physician and get hormonal testing. Laser hair removal is an effective way of treating unwanted hair in this condition.

Can I get the treatment if I have been tanning?

Always inform your technician if you have been tanning, using tanning products, or have experienced prolonged exposure to the sun within the last three weeks. It is recommended that a person does not have sun exposure in the area to be treated for a period of 3 weeks prior to treatment. Self tanners must be faded from the skin for at least a week prior to treatment. You should always discuss with your technician the possibility of tanning during your series so that a safe regimen can be tailored to your particular situation. Your technician will then adjust your treatment regimen accordingly to give you the safest and most effective experience.

How long will take to recover?

Your healing time will depend upon your actual treatment. In most cases, there is virtually no downtime and you may resume daily activity immediately. You may experience some redness after the procedure.

How many treatments will need?

Hair can only be affected by light energy when it is in its anagen stage. Hair located on different body parts has different growth cycles and percentages of anagen hair at any one given time. Due to this physiology, a series of treatments must be given over a period of time, usually 4-8 weeks apart to address the growth cycle of the hair. This is why 4-9 treatments are required to achieve up to 80% reduction in hair growth.

What will happen during the procedure?

Your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses. You may briefly feel a warm or “rubber band snap” sensation as the light is absorbed by the targeted areas. Typically, the procedure may take a few minutes to possibly half an hour depending on the size of the area to be treated and the type of procedure performed. The procedure is gentle, noninvasive and safe. The continuous cooling feature of the Cynosure will ensure your comfort and safety during treatment. Generally, there is no need for a topical anesthetic but your technician may choose to use it on more sensitive areas. Your technician will discuss all of your options with you. Laser hair reduction is most effective when the hair is one to two millimeters in length, so your technician may ask you to shave or trim the area the day before your treatment. Do not apply cosmetics or creams to the areas to be treated on the day of the procedure.

Tips before laser hair removal

Fair skin avoid sun exposure for at least four weeks before treatment, during the course of treatment and at least one week after treatment, including the use of tanning beds or tanning products, such as creams, lotions and sprays

Olive to Darker skin avoid sun exposure 5-7 days before treatment and one week after treatment, including the use of tanning beds or tanning products, such as creams, lotions and sprays

It’s best to shave the night before or the morning of your scheduled laser hair removal treatment. This will allow the laser to target the pigment in the hair follicle to effectively heat and destroy the follicle.

Is treatment permanent?

Typically, each laser treatment will be associated with some permanent hair loss. Therefore, in most cases, hair reduction can only be achieved after several treatments. The number of treatments varies, and will depend on each patient's response to the laser hair reduction treatment and the amount of hair to be removed. Remember that the goal may not be total hair removal. Many clients are happy with a reasonable degree of hair reduction. Also, the hair that remains is often lighter in color and thinner than the original hair prior to laser hair reduction treatment.

What should I expect after laser hair removal?

Some localized redness in the area that was treated may appear, but that should resolve within a few days. Results depend on your skin condition, the number and consistency of treatments, and the area treated. Your technician will provide you with complete information about the post treatment care and results.

What aftercare do I need?

It is crucial to follow your technician's instructions and recommendations. You will be offering some skin care products and instructions on how to use them. If you must go outdoors, it is recommended that you cover your treated skin and use sunblock of 30 SPF.

Why should I choose Helena's?

At Helena's we use the latest laser technology to give the most effective and safest treatments to our clients. We individualize treatments for each skin and hair type, all laser treatments including laser hair removal are performed by experts in laser hair removal.

Bikini Laser Treatment for Ingrown Hairs

$200/Women - $300/Men
(Top & Sides of underline)

How does laser hair removal get rid of ingrown hairs?

A laser treatment kills the hair follicle, so that it can no longer support hair growth. Following your session, the damage caused by the wayward follicle will heal naturally. Even if it had unfortunately become infected, a single session can kick start the healing process and you will see results almost immediately.
