We are proud to offer the ultra-effective and efficient Elite iQ Laser Treatments on Long Island, so you can achieve comprehensive results in less time.
There is power in versatility. And if the Elite iQ system has anything, it is an abundance of versatility when addressing patients' aesthetic concerns. This is important since every person who comes into our clinic deserves a treatment tailored specifically to their conditions. The medical and cosmetic experts at Marotta MedSpa are committed to providing our patients with the most innovative technologies on the market.
The Elite iQ, the process is simplified and is one machine for all of the most common laser treatments. It's also a more powerful and faster laser than its predecessors, cutting down on the time the laser needs to be in contact with your skin.
Elite iQ is a revolutionary high-power laser treatment that has pushed the boundary of what this category of systems can accomplish. Before the Elite iQ, laser technology had typically been limited to one aesthetic concern per system.
So if you were looking to address wrinkles and unwanted hair at the same time, your physician would have needed to cart out two separate machines. Not only does this make your treatment process more complicated for the practitioner, but it increases the time it takes for your procedure to be completed.
The first and only FDA-cleared melanin reader. And while the system excels at expediting the procedure itself, it also introduces brand new technology to the aesthetic treatment world. Before Skintel was available, providers would have to do their best at guessing how successful treatment would be for each patient. But with an objective measuring tool, they can now quickly identify test locations on this skin and optimize hair removal settings regardless of their skin type, ethnicity, or lifestyle. Melanin, the pigment that dictates how light or dark our skin is, has been a barrier for laser treatments since they were developed. Even now, most laser hair removal systems work best on skin types, with many contrasts between the skin and hair color.
Elite iQ works for a wide range of skin types and complexions, but the best way to determine your candidacy is to initiate a consultation with our office.
If you are looking to address any of the concerns we mentioned, or if you have a different aesthetic issue you think is a good fit for Elite iQ treatment, you will likely be a candidate. During this appointment, your specific goals will be discussed, and a physical examination will be conducted. The best candidates have realistic expectations for Elite iQ and do not have any preexisting conditions worsened by laser treatment.
The entire process will take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes for the typical patient, but this is entirely determined by your unique conditions and level of treatment being performed. However, there is a general pattern that your procedure will follow. Your procedure will differ slightly depending on the type of treatment you choose.
The targeted area will be sanitized before the treatment begins. If you are having hair removal performed, this includes a clean shave. This process maximizes the results while helping to prevent infection.
This cutting-edge technology will test your melanin level. The information gathered will inform your medical professional and the Elite iQ system on how to best treat your skin. This step is what sets this treatment apart from other options on the market.
Once the procedure is fully prepared, your provider will guide the Elite iQ device across the targeted area of the skin. The depth and concentration of the energy will be customized to your specific needs.
The recovery for Elite iQ is remarkably short.
Like most laser treatments, you will experience minor redness, discomfort, or irritation, but you can generally return to your everyday routines and life immediately after completing the procedure. The side effects typically last for around 48 hours, and many of our patients do not even need over-the-counter medication to help them cope.
Your results will be long-lasting. Depending on your treatment, your results will vary.
If you had hair removal performed, the hair will always appear thinner and less full than it would have been without the procedure. But remember, it is possible for those results to slightly fade over time, and a touch-up treatment may be required.
If your concern addressed wrinkles and fine lines in the face, you would notice a nearly immediate improvement in facial volume and elasticity. This is because by penetrating the deepest layers of the skin with heat, your body begins to flood the targeted area with collagen.
Collagen is the most abundant protein we produce and is primarily responsible for keeping our skin taut and youthful. Increasing its density directly impacts the appearance of wrinkles. This method of treatment does require a standard treatment routine.
If you sought treatment for poor skin texture, discoloration, bumps, or a dull complexion, the Elite iQ system can exfoliate imperfections and restore a healthy, vibrant layer of surface tissue. In addition, you can choose to have this procedure performed whenever you feel your face needs a bit of a touch-up.
We do everything to ensure you are comfortable and confident as you move forward with your decision-making.

Elite iQ is a noninvasive approach, so you will not need to worry about extensive preparations. The vast majority of our patients complete their procedures in less than an hour. It is performed in-office, and you can resume your usual activities immediately after treatment with virtually no recovery or downtime.
While you will be able to return to your regular routine immediately after your treatment, there are some things you will need to avoid in the days after your procedure. Your skin will be more vulnerable to sunlight, so you will need to stay out of direct sunlight for several days. You may also need to avoid shaving or rubbing your treated skin.
The number of treatments you will need to achieve your desired results will depend on the nature of your concerns, how your body responds to treatment, and your personal goals. During your consultation with your aesthetic provider, they can give you more insight into the approximate number of treatments you will need to achieve your best results.
