Elos Skin Hair Removal (DSL)
ELOS- Electro Optical Synergy is a revolutionary technology that uses bi-polar radio frequency (RF), a highly controllable energy heat source, with optical energy. This is utilized by the E- Max machine to cater to applications such as, hair removal, advanced skin rejuvenation, wrinkle reduction, vein treatment and acne & skin tightening. As compared to conventional lasers, the use of ELOS ensures improved client safety and satisfaction. It lowers the risk of epidermal damage by using less optical energy and directing the RF energy deeper into the dermis instead of onto the epidermal layer of the skin. An Active Dermal Monitoring is also part of its state- of- the art safety features, providing real time temperature feedback with each pulse. The ELOS difference, pioneered by IPL inventor/patent- holder Dr. S. Eckhouse and physicist Dr. M. Kreindel, certainly presents enhanced efficacy, maximized safety and improved treatment results for its users.
Treatment that uses laser and bi-polar radiofrequency energies to reduce growth of unwanted hair on areas such as the upper lip, cheeks, chin, neck, armpits, breasts, stomach, arms, shoulders, bikini area, legs and back.
This hair removal treatment powered by the revolutionary elos technology, grants its clients satisfactory results in reducing hair growth as well as keeping each growth finer, lighter in color and sluggish.
DSL treatments do not necessary require topical anesthetics unless clients prefer having their skin numb prior to the procedure. The area to be treated will be covered with a layer of cool, clear gel that serves as a RF conductive medium before proceeding. Once the RF conductive medium has been applied, the areas are then treated with a gentle pulse of light and Radio-Frequency energy. The target is preheated by using the light energy which creates a thermal path on which the bi-polar RF travels. The RF is then absorbed by the hair and transformed to heat resulting to terminally disabled and denatured hair follicle, thus hair growth prevention. To help relieve the discomfort clients feel during the procedure, a chilled air device prevents the upper layers of the skin from becoming too hot while effectively treating the follicle below. A cycle of 3-8 treatments are usually required to achieve satisfactory clearance and performed every 2-3 months. But due to individual growth patterns, cycle of treatments may vary.
Since Laser energy is naturally attracted to dark colors, the best candidates for permanent laser hair removal are those with light skin and dark hair. Treatment for those with lighter colored hair may require more treatments and the response rate may be less predictable.
Temporary skin flushing may last for a short time following treatment.
There is no downtime required. Most clients return to their normal activities immediately after treatment.
How does Hair Removal with elos™ DSL Applicator work?
The DSL uses laser and bi-polar radio frequency energies to damage the hair follicle. This disables the follicle from growing hair, which means that gradually over several treatments, there is a permanent reduction in the amount of hair in that area.
Do men have Laser Hair Removal treatment?
Many men can have back and chest hair permanently controlled using the laser method. Since the treatment is much faster now, a back can be treated in about 20 minutes.
Is treatment with the DSL Applicator safe?
Treatment is very safe for the skin. There are many advances in the DSL technology that make it one of the safest hair removal systems available for all skin colors. There are no long term health hazards from laser or electric energies used in the DSL. Both have been used for decades in medicine, surgery, and aesthetics without adversity.
How is DSL Applicator treatment tolerated by the patient?
Everyone has different pain tolerances but most patients are treated without topical anaesthetic creams. The chilled air device, SynerCool™ is very helpful for discomfort during treatment and especially when fast, auto-repeat firing is used for large treatment zones.
How frequently does one need DSL Applicator treatments?
The treatments are usually performed every 2-3 months, but this depends on individual factors.
What happens after each DSL Applicator treatment?
Temporary pinkness in the skin lasts a very short time, and most people return to work or normal activities immediately after treatment. The treated area will “shed” some hairs over the next 2-4 weeks, and patients may experience a period of hairlessness in the area while you wait for your next treatment.
