How the Apogee Elite™ works
Apogee Elite™ was designed primarily for the removal of unwanted hair, but can also be used to treat other skin concerns. The 755nm wavelength of the Apogee Elite™ can be used for the reduction of skin pigmentation such as sun spots, age spots and freckles. Additionally, the 1064nm wavelength can be used for facial and leg veins.
For patient comfort and protection, the Apogee Elite™ uses SmartCool technology involving a flow of chilled air to the treatment area during and after the procedure.
Individual results may vary, as may the number of treatments required to achieve these results.
