WHAT IS ELECTRO-OPTICAL ENERGY? (ELOS)
Elōs is the first and only technology, that is able simultaneously harness the power of bi-polar radio frequency (RF) and optical laser energy, thus allowing for complete follicle isolation and effective treatment of the problem area, leaving the surrounding skin free from potentially harmful side-effects.
IS IT SAFE?
There are no long-term health hazards when undergoing Elos treatments, as both light and electric energy have been used safely for decades in medicine, surgery and aesthetics. The energy emitted ONLY penetrates the skin, and does not go deep enough to reach vital tissue or organ.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO PREPARE FOR TREATMENTS?
Limiting exposure to the sun and tanning beds for 2 weeks before treatment. Do not attempt to pluck, or wax for 4-6 weeks prior and after your treatment. You can generally resume work and most normal activities immediately following treatment.
WHAT ARE TREATMENTS LIKE? ARE THEY PAINFUL?
Fast, gentle, and easy. No pain medication is required, but a cooling spray is applied to skin milliseconds prior to the laser pulse, to ensure that the treatment is as comfortable as it is effective. Laser energy is delivered through a small hand-piece operated by your practitioner. The laser delivers an intense beam of light, which is absorbed by the skin and converted to heat. The heat is then absorbed by the cells being targeted, while the surrounding tissue remains unaffected. When the procedure is complete, most of the hair wipes off right away. The remaining hair falls out over a period of about a week or two.
ARE THERE ANY POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS?
Your skin may be slightly red immediately following the procedure.This typically lasts from a few minutes to several hours after the procedure. Dark spots will go darker, before eventually going light. To greatly minimize the risk of complication, sun exposure needs to be limited at least two weeks before and after treatment.
ARE THERE ANY FACTORS THAT MAY AFFECT MY TREATMENT?
All skin types, and hair types are able to be treated with ELOS!
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
Treatments should be repeated every 4-6 weeks for an average of three to five treatments. On average, approximately 29% reduction will be noticed in the initial treatment and as much as 95% reduction can be realized in 4-5 treatments. The total number of treatments is subject to change, and will be determined during your consultation with a licensed practitioner.
