We’re proud to offer Elōs™, the first and only technology which combines radio energies and light to gently and effectively remove hair from anywhere. Developed by the inventors of hair removal pulsed light systems, Elōs™ is the next generation of safe and effective hair removal technology.
Elōs™ technology allows us to precisely target and destroy hair follicles, so you can say goodbye to unwanted hair on your upper lip, cheeks, chin, neck, breasts, stomach, arms, shoulders, bikini area, legs, and back.
Is it permanent?
Elōs™ targets the hair follicle rather than just the shaft, and this is highly effective in the destruction of the hair follicle over the course of a scheduled treatment regimen.* Some patients may experience a greater degree of hair recurrence, requiring additional treatments.
What are the steps for this procedure?
First, you will receive a comprehensive skin assessment. This helps us determine any special requirements needed for your skin type and hair quality. Thirty minutes before the treatment, we apply a topical anesthetic (numbing cream) to your skin. We then cover the treatment area with a thin layer of non-gel, aqueous RF conductive medium, which helps to conduct the Elōs™ current. Once this layer has been applied, we use a hand-held device to sweep over the treatment areas with Elōs™ technology, sending a gentle pulse of light and Radio-Frequency energy to remove hair. Each treatment takes about 30 minutes, and you can resume normal activities directly afterwards.
What does it feel like?
Patients report a slight tingling feeling, and occasionally a quick, light pinch on the most sensitive areas. Since we use a topical anesthetic, this procedure is generally very comfortable for our patients.
How many treatments will I need and how often?
6-8 treatments are usually needed every 8-12 weeks for arms, legs, and back, with 1-2 maintenance treatments per year.* 4-6 treatments are needed for facial hair removal, with 4 maintenance treatments per year.* 6 treatments are needed every 4-8 weeks for bikini and axillary hair removal, with 1-2 maintenance treatments per year.* Since everyone is different, we will help you determine your individual needs during a scheduled consultation.
What about recovery time?
There is no recovery time; you can resume your normal activities directly after treatment.
Is it safe?
Elōs™ (electro-optical synergy) combines radio-frequencies and light to isolate the treatment area and prevent damage to surrounding skin. Using pulses of two different energies, Elōs™ delivers effective results with lower energy output, making it a safe and comfortable choice for hair removal. Elōs™ uses Vortex Heating, which occurs when the RF current encircles and heats the hair follicle, causing it to fall out.
