Treat unwanted hair growth on all body areas including: upper lip, cheeks, chin, neck, breasts, stomach, arms, shoulders, bikini area, legs and back with laser hair reduction treatments.

elos is the first and only technology that uses combined engergies to effectively and gently remove hair of many colors and types from all skin tones. elos is truly the next generation of safe and effective hair removal technology. Achieving beautiful, silky smooth skin is now easier than ever.

How does it work?

Hair follicles are precisely targeted and destroyed using the revolutionary elos combination of bi-polar radio frequency and light engergies.

When can I expect to see results?

Hair growth is reduced after each treatment. The number of treatments required will be based on your hair color, hair type, body area and skin tone.

Does it hurt?

Cooling of the skin surface as well as constant measurement of the skin’s resistance ensures safety and comfort during treatment. This is a no-downtime procedure. Many patients return to normal activities immediately after treatment.

Before your treatment

  • Avoid tanning for 2 months and no sun exposure for 2 weeks prior
  • Avoid waxing, tweezing or depilatory use for 6 weeks
  • Avoid irritants such as products containing glycolic acid or Retin-A in the area for 5-7 days.
  • No Accutane for 6 months prior to treatment
  • Shave the desired treatment area the night before laser treatment.
  • No deodorant, creams, oils, perfumes, etc on area prior to treatment
  • Wear loose, comfortable clothing on the day of treatment, so as not to irritate the treated area

Aftercare

  • The areas treated with the laser may be red following treatment. This will generally fade within 2-3 days.
  • The treated area can be washed normally with mild soap and water. Wash the area gently with your fingertips. Use of a washcloth or other abrasive instrument is not recommended.
  • Cover the treated area with a sunscreen of SPF30 or higher and avoid sun exposure to the treated area for 2 weeks. No direct sun exposure for at least 2 weeks
  • Avoid irritants such as products containing glycolic acid or Retin-A in the area for 5-7 days.
  • Minor crusting or scabbing of the treated area can occur following treatment. Do not rub or pick the scab.
  • Wash gently with fingertips and mild soap. Apply an antibacterial ointment to the treated area. Apply 1% hydrocortisone or Aloe Vera to treated area as redness occurs
  • Hair remaining in the follicle will extrude typically within 1-2 weeks after treatment. This will look like growth but is simply the body’s way of eliminating the hair from the injured follicle. On the third day posttreatment, you may shave or gently wash the area to help loosen hair that is still embedded in the follicles.
  • No exercise until perifollicular edema (red bumps) resolves
  • No Jacuzzi, sauna or steam baths until the skin is back to normal
