Frequently Asked Questions

Elite iQ is a targeted, efficient process of laser hair removal that works with all skin tones. It’s essentially a smart method of laser hair removal, as the device is tailored to the unique skin you’re in.

The Elite iQ laser hair removal system uses Skintel technology, or a melanin reader, to essentially “read” your skin tone and come up with the perfect setting for you. This is what makes Elite iQ so perfect for all skin types and skin tones. 

Once your provider has the appropriate setting in place, a handheld laser device sends beams straight to the source: your hair follicles. That heat causes those hair follicles to stop in their tracks, disabling them from further growth. The result is smoother, softer skin and impressive overall hair reduction that you just won’t see with other methods.

Traditionally, the ideal candidate for laser hair removal had light skin and dark, coarse hair. That isn’t necessarily true with Elite iQ. While dark hair is certainly easier to target when it comes to your hair follicles, Elite iQ is appropriate for any skin tone and any hair texture. 

As long as you are not pregnant or nursing, anyone looking to get rid of unwanted hair is a candidate for Elite iQ.

Elite iQ laser hair removal is the closest method of permanent hair reduction out there, with many seeing hair reduction of up to 80% after several rounds of treatments. The hair that does grow back over time is typically lighter and finer, reducing the appearance of body hair even further. The lasers used during your treatment target deep within the hair follicles to inhibit future growth. You can’t say the same about traditional waxing or shaving.

Laser hair removal can be uncomfortable for some, although many fans of Elite iQ feel minimal discomfort during treatments. Some find that laser hair removal feels like a stinging sensation and is less painful than waxing. If your treatment area is more sensitive, talk to your provider about potential pain management techniques, like numbing creams. 

The bonus of Elite iQ is that treatments are efficient and usually over within 30 minutes. Your provider also won’t linger in any one area for too long, giving you a break if you’re feeling any discomfort in a targeted spot.

The number of hair removal treatments you’ll need will depend on your unique treatment plan, although most will benefit from anywhere between 3-6 treatments. Touchup treatments may be needed months after your last session if you don’t like the regrowth you’re seeing. Most fans of Elite iQ find that those gaps between sessions get longer and longer with additional laser treatments. 

Larger treatment areas will likely require more treatments, on top of the fact that one treatment alone won’t hit hair growing across all of its various stages. Your provider at the Med Lounge can talk you through a plan to tackle your skin goals effectively and in the most efficient way possible.

What to Expect With Elite iQ Laser Hair Removal

For the best results and to reduce the chance of any side effects after your treatment, our experts at the Med Lounge have a few tips around what to expect with your laser hair removal in Ladera Ranch before and after your procedure.

PRE-TREATMENT

  • Let your doctor know if you have a history of cold sores if you will be receiving a treatment on your face. You’ll need a prescription to get rid of any active infection or prevent an infection after your treatment.
  • Don’t wax or tweeze up to six weeks before your Elite iQ laser hair removal. You want the lasers to see your hair follicles, and any pulling from the root can mean additional treatments needed down the line.
  • Avoid any additional laser treatments or chemical peels to targeted areas in the two weeks before and after your laser hair removal.
  • Avoid sun exposure in the two weeks before your treatment. Sunburned skin is irritated skin, and coming to a session with a sunburn will likely mean your session will be rescheduled.
  • Be gentle with your skin in the week before your treatment. Avoid harsh cleansers, acne treatments and retinoids/retinols.
  • Targeted skin should be clean-shaven to allow the Elite iQ device to do its work in coming up with a treatment setting for you.
  • Your provider will clean the targeted area, but avoid applying any makeup, lotions or deodorants to any sites that will be treated ahead of your laser hair removal.

POST-TREATMENT

  • Treatments don’t require any downtime, but be gentle with your skin in the days that follow. Avoid shaving the treatment areas for at least three days post-treatment. 
  • Set aside your regular exfoliating routines for up to five days after your laser hair removal. Don’t scrub the treatment areas during that period.
  • Avoid sun exposure in the two weeks following your treatment.
  • You may experience some skin irritation after your laser hair removal. Your provider will give you a soothing lotion to use to reduce irritation and recommend other ways to soothe irritated skin. 
  • Contact your provider if you experience more serious side effects like blistering, swelling, or rashes at the treatment site.
  • Your hair may continue to shed for up to 2 weeks after your treatment. This is normal and not new hair growth.
  • Following your treatment plan from your provider will lead to the best results. Most will need at least three laser hair removal sessions for optimal results as hair grows in stages.

BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) Important Information

 

Indications

BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is indicated in adult patients for the temporary improvement in the appearance of:

– Moderate to severe glabellar lines associated with corrugator and/or procerus muscle activity

– Moderate to severe lateral canthal lines associated with orbicularis oculi activity

 

– Moderate to severe forehead lines associated with frontalis activity

 

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION, INCLUDING BOXED WARNING

 

WARNING: DISTANT SPREAD OF TOXIN EFFECT

Postmarketing reports indicate that the effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic and all botulinum toxin products may spread from the area of injection to produce symptoms consistent with botulinum toxin effects. These may include asthenia, generalized muscle weakness, diplopia, ptosis, dysphagia, dysphonia, dysarthria, urinary incontinence, and breathing difficulties. These symptoms have been reported hours to weeks after injection. Swallowing and breathing difficulties can be life threatening and there have been reports of death. The risk of symptoms is probably greatest in children treated for spasticity, but symptoms can also occur in adults treated for spasticity and other conditions, particularly in those patients who have an underlying condition that would predispose them to these symptoms. In unapproved uses and approved indications, cases of spread of effect have been reported at doses comparable to those used to treat cervical dystonia and spasticity and at lower doses.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

BOTOX® Cosmetic is contraindicated in the presence of infection at the proposed injection site(s) and in individuals with known hypersensitivity to any botulinum toxin preparation or to any of the components in the formulation.

WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

Lack of Interchangeability Between Botulinum Toxin Products

The potency units of BOTOX® Cosmetic are specific to the preparation and assay method utilized. They are not interchangeable with other preparations of botulinum toxin products and, therefore, units of biological activity of BOTOX® Cosmetic cannot be compared to nor converted into units of any other botulinum toxin products assessed with any other specific assay method.

Spread of Toxin Effect

Please refer to Boxed Warning for Distant Spread of Toxin Effect.

No definitive serious adverse event reports of distant spread of toxin effect associated with dermatologic use of BOTOX® Cosmetic at the labeled dose of 20 Units (for glabellar lines), 24 Units (for lateral canthal lines), 40 Units (for forehead lines with glabellar lines), 44 Units (for simultaneous treatment of lateral canthal lines and glabellar lines), and 64 Units (for simultaneous treatment of lateral canthal lines, glabellar lines, and forehead lines) have been reported. Patients or caregivers should be advised to seek immediate medical care if swallowing, speech, or respiratory disorders occur.

Serious Adverse Reactions With Unapproved Use

Serious adverse reactions, including excessive weakness, dysphagia, and aspiration pneumonia, with some adverse reactions associated with fatal outcomes, have been reported in patients who received BOTOX® injections for unapproved uses. In these cases, the adverse reactions were not necessarily related to distant spread of toxin, but may have resulted from the administration of BOTOX® to the site of injection and/or adjacent structures. In several of the cases, patients had pre-existing dysphagia or other significant disabilities. There is insufficient information to identify factors associated with an increased risk for adverse reactions associated with the unapproved uses of BOTOX®. The safety and effectiveness of BOTOX® for unapproved uses have not been established.

Hypersensitivity Reactions

Serious and/or immediate hypersensitivity reactions have been reported. These reactions include anaphylaxis, serum sickness, urticaria, soft-tissue edema, and dyspnea. If such reactions occur, further injection of BOTOX® Cosmetic should be discontinued and appropriate medical therapy immediately instituted. One fatal case of anaphylaxis has been reported in which lidocaine was used as the diluent and, consequently, the causal agent cannot be reliably determined.

Cardiovascular System

There have been reports following administration of BOTOX® of adverse events involving the cardiovascular system, including arrhythmia and myocardial infarction, some with fatal outcomes. Some of these patients had risk factors including pre-existing cardiovascular disease. Use caution when administering to patients with pre-existing cardiovascular disease.

Increased Risk of Clinically Significant Effects With Pre-existing Neuromuscular Disorders

Individuals with peripheral motor neuropathic diseases, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or neuromuscular junction disorders (eg, myasthenia gravis or Lambert-Eaton syndrome) should be monitored when given botulinum toxin. Patients with neuromuscular disorders may be at increased risk of clinically significant effects including generalized muscle weakness, diplopia, ptosis, dysphonia, dysarthria, severe dysphagia, and respiratory compromise from onabotulinumtoxinA (see Warnings and Precautions).

Dysphagia and Breathing Difficulties

Treatment with BOTOX® and other botulinum toxin products can result in swallowing or breathing difficulties. Patients with pre-existing swallowing or breathing difficulties may be more susceptible to these complications. In most cases, this is a consequence of weakening of muscles in the area of injection that are involved in breathing or oropharyngeal muscles that control swallowing or breathing (see Boxed Warning).

Pre-existing Conditions at the Injection Site

Caution should be used when BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is used in the presence of inflammation at the proposed injection site(s) or when excessive weakness or atrophy is present in the target muscle(s).

Dry Eye in Patients Treated With BOTOX® Cosmetic

There have been reports of dry eye associated with BOTOX® Cosmetic injection in or near the orbicularis oculi muscle. If symptoms of dry eye (eg, eye irritation, photophobia, or visual changes) persist, consider referring patients to an ophthalmologist.

Human Albumin and Transmission of Viral Diseases

This product contains albumin, a derivative of human blood. Based on effective donor screening and product manufacturing processes, it carries an extremely remote risk for transmission of viral diseases and variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD). There is a theoretical risk for transmission of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD), but if that risk actually exists, the risk of transmission would also be considered extremely remote. No cases of transmission of viral diseases, CJD or vCJD have ever been identified for licensed albumin or albumin contained in other licensed products.

ADVERSE REACTIONS

The most frequently reported adverse reactions following injection of BOTOX® Cosmetic for glabellar lines were eyelid ptosis (3%), facial pain (1%), facial paresis (1%), and muscular weakness (1%).

The most frequently reported adverse reaction following injection of BOTOX® Cosmetic for lateral canthal lines was eyelid edema (1%).

The most frequently reported adverse reactions following injection of BOTOX® Cosmetic for forehead lines with glabellar lines were headache (9%), brow ptosis (2%), and eyelid ptosis (2%).

DRUG INTERACTIONS

Co-administration of BOTOX® Cosmetic and aminoglycosides or other agents interfering with neuromuscular transmission (eg, curare-like compounds) should only be performed with caution as the effect of the toxin may be potentiated. Use of anticholinergic drugs after administration of BOTOX® Cosmetic may potentiate systemic anticholinergic effects.

The effect of administering different botulinum neurotoxin products at the same time or within several months of each other is unknown. Excessive neuromuscular weakness may be exacerbated by

administration of another botulinum toxin prior to the resolution of the effects of a previously administered botulinum toxin.

Excessive weakness may also be exaggerated by administration of a muscle relaxant before or after administration of BOTOX® Cosmetic.

USE IN SPECIFIC POPULATIONS

There are no studies or adequate data from postmarketing surveillance on the developmental risk associated with use of BOTOX® Cosmetic in pregnant women. There are no data on the presence of BOTOX® Cosmetic in human or animal milk, the effects on the breastfed child, or the effects on milk production.
