Hair Removal with elos™ Technology
We are proud to offer elos™ the first and only technology that uses combined energies to effectively and gently remove hair of many colors and types from all skin tones. Developed by the original inventor of hair removal pulsed light systems elos™ is truly the next generation of safe and effective hair removal technology. Hair follicles are precisely targeted and destroyed using the revolutionary elos™ combination of Bi-Polar Radio Frequency and Light energies.
How our Hair Removal Systems Work
Hair Removal systems are setting new standards of speed, safety, and efficacy, in the removal of even minimally-pigmented hair colors, and all skin tones, including tanned skin.Results using conventional optical only systems are limited because they operate indirectly by superheating the melanin in the hair shaft and hope for enough collateral thermal damage. Syneron® Systems achieve superior results because they precisely target and destroy the hair follicle through a process known as Vortex heating.

Hair growth is reduced after each treatment. The number of treatments required will be based on your hair color and type, body area, and skin tone. 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.
Conditions that may be treated are:
- hair on all body areas
- lighter colored hair
Before treatment, try to avoid the sun for 4-6 weeks before your treatment, or use a good sunblock on the area you will be having treated. If you have gotten tan on the area recently, please notify us. Sunless tanning products should be avoided. Don’t apply any sort of products to the area. This includes lotions, Vitamin A products, makeup and perfume. For those with extremely sensitive skin, a mild topical anaesthetic may be used prior to treatment.
Potential Side Effects and Post-treatment
After treatment, mild sunburn-like sensation is expected. This usually lasts 2-24 hours but can persist up to 72 hours. Mild swelling and/or redness may accompany this, but it usually resolves in 2-3 days. Until redness has completely resolved avoid aggressive scrubbing and exfoliants, applying cosmetics to treated area, swimming, especially in pools with chemicals, such as chlorine, hot tubs and jacuzzi, activities that cause excessive perspiration, and sun exposure to treated areas. Apply an SPF 30 or greater sunscreen daily.
Conditions that may exclude you from elos™ treatments include pregnancy, pacemakers/cardiac irregularities, active infection or a history of herpes in the treatment area, a history of keloid scarring, raised moles/suspicious skin lesions, tattooed area, diabetes, epilepsy, implants in the treatment area, and acne treated with Accutane within the previous 6-12 months. Please inform us of any of the above conditions so that we may assess your treatment possibilities.
How does hair removal with elos™ work?
elos™ (electro-optical synergy) uses a unique combination of radio frequency and light to isolate the treatment area and leave the surrounding skin free from potentially harmful side effects. Using gentle pulses of two targeted energies means better results with lower overall energy output ? assuring the highest level of safety and comfort. Other systems using only one energy source can’t compare.
Is hair removal with elos™ right for me?
Permanent hair reduction can be achieved for both men and women, and almost all body areas can be treated. Only elos™ is proven to remove lighter colored hair, on all skin tones.
When can I expect to see results?
Hair growth is reduced with each treatment. Sometimes it takes a couple treatments for you to see the difference. The total number of treatments required is based on your hair color and type, body area, and skin tone. During your initial consultation, your medical
practitioner will personalize your treatment schedule for maximum results.
Does it hurt?
Individual experience varies, but most people only feel a slight sensation like tiny pin pricks, or rubber band snaps. For your added safety and peace of mind, elos™ technology features an advanced patient comfort system, which monitors your skin and keeps it at a soothing cool temperature during the procedure. Treatment with elos™ is easy. There’s no surgery, no sedation, and no downtime. And most procedures take 30 minutes or less.
