ELOS IPL Skin Rejuvenation
ELOS Skin Rejuvenation technology provides skin rejuvenation for all skin and hair types. Compared to earlier IPL technology, there is less blistering, scabbing, crusting and hyper or hypopigmentation, reduced redness and inflammation and less pain. The technology treats superficial benign vascular and pigmented lesions including Telangiectasias, Rosacea, Poikiloderma and Angioma for true skin rejuvenation.
ELOS is the first technology that simultaneously harnesses the power of bi-polar radio frequency (RF) and optical energy (either laser or light). Developed by IPL inventor/patent-holder Dr. Shimon Eckhouse and master physicist, Dr. Michael Kreindel. This revolutionary technology platform effectively overcomes the safety and procedural limitations of intense pulse light (IPL) and conventional lasers. The ELOS advantages in safety and efficacy are documented in many clinical papers, and realised in medical aesthetic practices all over the world.
Commonly Asked Questions:
Why is ELOS technology more effective than standard IPL?
By emitting the optical pulse and electric pulse at the same time, the net effect is to force the electric energy to stream preferentially to the regions of the dermis pre-heated by the absorbed light, producing a greater and more focused thermal effect than a single pulse of high energy light. With less intense light energy there are less burning risks and the synergistic coupling of energies means that each pulse can be delivered for a longer period of time than standard IPL – yielding improved results.
How does the ELOS technology rejuvenate the skin?
The gentle light and electric energies break up the pigment and blood in lesions and stimulates collagen restructuring and production, thus restoring skin to a more youthful state. Brown spots (pigmented imperfections) from sun damage and aging, red blotchiness from spider vessels or rosacea (vascular imperfections) and rough skin texture will improve over a series of treatments.
What kind of results can be expected from an ELOS skin rejuvenation treatment?
Each ELOS Skin Rejuvenation treatment will result in gradual lightening and improvement of pigmented and vascular imperfections. Textural improvements are appreciated towards the end of the treatment series. Here are some of the changes that can be expected.
- With a series of five treatments people with ruddy complexions should see an improvement some-where between 60 and 70%
- Broken capillaries should resolve about 75%
- Sunspots, brown spots and freckles will improve anywhere from 80 to 90%
- Fine wrinkles around the eyes and mouth area improve around 40 to 60%
- Deeper wrinkles will improve anywhere from 20 to 40%
How frequently do ELOS skin rejuvenation treatments need to be performed?
Treatments are repeated every 4-6 weeks for an average of three to five treatments.
How does the ELOS Skin Rejuvenation treatment feel?
The sensation is often described as a ‘hot pinch’ or ‘snapping’ feeling. The sensation only lasts for a fraction of a second and warmth and/or a tingling sensation is experienced for a short time afterward. Most people tolerate treatment without any topical anaesthetic, but individuals who are more.
What happens after each ELOS Skin Rejuvenation treatment?
Temporary pinkness in the skin lasts a very short time, and most people return to work or normal activities immediately after treatment. The improvement in pigmented and vascular irregularities can often be appreciated before the next treatment a month later. Brown spots temporarily go darker before they lighten
Who can experience the benefits of an ELOS Skin Rejuvenation skin rejuvenation treatment?
Anyone who wants to improve the signs of sun damage and ageing in the skin, such as pigmented and vascular irregularities, uneven or rough skin texture. Skin rejuvenation can be performed on face, neck, chest, hands and arms.
Why have your treatments done at Saving Face?
The investments we have made in training, highly skilled aestheticians, superior equipment and a premium facility justifies why our clients continue to have their treatments done with us. Saving Face does not price the treatments like Dermatologists do. Our experience, value-add services and personalised after-care services makes a great difference to our clients during their course of treatments.
How much will it cost?
Costs will depend on the area being treated. Call us on 3082520 to book an elos consultation for detailed pricing or email us. The consultation costs $45 but if you go ahead with the treatment, the consultation is free. Elos skin rejuvenation is preventative for ageing, removes imperfections and improves both the skin surface texture and tone, while skin tightening produces collagen to lift and support the skin.
Hi Team. I would just like to say how totally amazed I am after my 1st appt with Carl. I had a rather large sunspot on my face that I disliked. I visited Carl on the 17th October and had the treatment. Last weekend the remainder of the really dark pigmentation (as a result of the elos) was gone together with half of my sunspot. What a fantastic result. Thanks heaps – looking forward to my next appointment in a couple of weeks. Thanks – Heather
