Elos™ stands for electro-optical synergy. Without getting into complicated discussions of physics, basically the light energy targets specific structures in the skin. By heating the target with radiofrequency energy, tissue resistance to light energy is lowered. This enhances delivery of light energy from the different lasers at their specific wavelengths that further heat the target area: hair follicle. This results in destruction and damage of unwanted targets. Because the RF energy enhances the light effect at lower energy levels, the treatments are safer and less prone to side effects like blistering, burns, and discoloration common to all laser and light treatments.
Treatments for hair reduction are typically packaged in groups of 6 for best results. Treatments are done at 6-8 week intervals on the body and 4-6 week intervals on the face typically. In order to obtain the best results it is important to avoid tanning before and after treatments. There is no complicated aftercare required and no downtime with these treatments; however certain recommendations for best results are made with each type of treatment. This information is provided at your consultation and each treatment.
