Skintel – the Industry’s First Melanin Reader

The Skintel melanin reader is the industry’s first FDA-cleared melanin reader. It enables practitioners to identify test spot settings, optimizing hair removal treatments tailored to each client’s skin type, lifestyle, and ethnicity. No more judging skin type by eye or guessing if a patient has been in the sun – this is an objective measurement that allows you to choose the right parameters for treatment.

Power & Versatility

Elite iQ is a high power, 30A Nd:YAG system capable of performing a wide variety of treatments. From hair removal to facial veins, sun damage, and wrinkles, this is a system that can expand an aesthetic menu and offer patients what they are looking for.

Modern Look, Improved User Experience

Not only is this system a workhorse, it looks good doing it. This completely new design features:

  • Large tilt and swivel touch screen
  • Flat-top and internal drawer for storage
  • Wraparound handle for easy maneuverability
  • 6-color LED logo and back-lit handle

On top of this, the touch screen interface is intuitive and minimalist which makes using the device fast and easy.


*Compared to previous generation devices; with most handpieces and fluences

Introducing Elite iQ



Skintel Melanin Reader

Using Cynosure Lutronic’s proprietary technology, Skintel allows for accurate assessment of skin type and treatment parameters.


Check with your local representative for availability.

The Elite iQ aesthetic workstation is indicated for the following, but not limited to: permanent hair reduction and treatment of vascular lesions, benign pigmented lesions, wrinkles, warts, scars, stretch marks, psoriasis, rosacea and ingrown facial hairs. Common side effects include redness, swelling, crusting and scabbing. Other side effects may include blistering, burns, hives and lightening and darkening of the skin. Like all medical procedures, not all patients are suitable for the treatment. A qualified practitioner is solely responsible for evaluating each subject’s suitability to undergo treatment and for informing those being treated about any risks involved with the treatment, pre-and postoperative care, and any other relevant information. Individual results may vary and are not guaranteed.

“Elite iQ’s large spot sizes with higher power and faster repetition rate has enabled me to perform a full body treatment in approximately half the time. These factors, combined with its ergonomic handpiece and user-friendly interface with Skintel integration, shows that this device was created with both the practitioner’s and patient’s best interests as the top priority. ”
