Skin Renewal Q & A

What cosmetic problems are treated with skin rejuvenation?

Dr. Ucheagwu uses the Cynosure Elite+ Aesthetic Workstation, which is one of the most advanced systems for rejuvenating your skin by removing pigmented lesions and wrinkles.

What are pigmented lesions?

Your skin contains a natural pigment called melanin which can darken into pigmented lesions or discolored areas known as sun spots and age spots.

You can also develop pigmented lesions after inflammation or an injury. For example, acne and eczema may leave dark discoloration in the skin after the blemishes heal.

What are the benefits of the Elite+?

The Elite+ is a cutting-edge laser system that delivers energy faster, which means your treatment takes less time.

It also has two different wavelengths built into the system, which makes the laser safe for all skin types and gives Dr. Ucheagwu the ability to customize your treatment.

The system also comes equipped with varying spot sizes, which determine the size of the treatment area. Larger spot sizes mean Dr. Ucheagwu can treat sizeable areas in less time.

How does the Elite+ renew your skin?

The Elite+ works two ways to rejuvenate your skin:

Pigment removal

Using one wavelength, laser energy is absorbed by melanin but not by the surrounding skin. As a result, Dr. Ucheagwu can target sun spots, age spots, and melasma without harming your clear skin in the same area.

When the discolored areas absorb laser energy, the pigmented cells are heated to the point at which they break down. After your body gradually clears away the destroyed cells, the pigmented area is gone for good.

Fine lines and wrinkles

As you get older, collagen production drops, which contributes to wrinkles. When laser treatment passes through your skin to tissues below the surface, its heat triggers collagen production.

As old skin is replaced with collagen-rich skin cells, your new skin is better toned and the appearance of wrinkles is diminished.

What should you expect during and after skin renewal with Elite+?

One treatment with Elite+ takes less than 20 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated. After Elite+ wrinkle treatment, your skin may be a little red. Pigmented lesions temporarily darken for a few days before flaking off. Either way, you can get back to your normal activities as soon as your treatment is finished.
