Cynosure has designed the Apogee Elite to be one of the most comprehensive devices on the market for laser hair removal. The Cynosure Apogee Elite works on all skin types allowing practitioners to treat a wide variety of patients. The system can also be used to treat leg and facial veins as well as pigmented lesions. The Elite is one of the fastest and effective systems on the market.
The Apogee Elite utilizes two laser platforms in one unit:
- A 755 nm Alexandrite laser,
- And a 1064-nm Nd:YAG laser
During laser hair removal treatment, you can easily switch between the two wavelengths to target specific skin and hair types, making the patient’s treatment session highly effective. This saves time and allows you to deliver multiple procedures at a time. With this advantage you can then treat more patients during the day in shorter time periods, thus increasing your productivity and revenue generation. Spot sizes are not predetermined, so you can easily deliver energy in very small spots or very large without having to change handpieces. With one handpiece you can deliver a wide variety of pulses too.
Alexandrite Laser Head: The 755 nm wavelength is characterized by high melanin absorption which results in long-term permanent hair reduction as well as pigment lesion removal. The laser is comprised of two Alexandrite flashlamps that emit short intense bursts of white light to target melanin in the skin.
Nd:YAG Laser Head: The Nd:YAG is extremely safe for permanent hair reduction on individuals with dark skin types or with tanned skin. The 1064 nm wavelength is also ideal for leg and facial vein treatment. The ND:YAG component uses mirrors to reflect and direct the 1064 nm light beam to the target treatment area.
Beam Combiner: The Apogee features a beam combiner which allows both the Alexandrite laser beam and YAG laser beam to be delivered at the same time.
