How does Elos Laser Hair Removal work?
Elos (electro-optical synergy) uses a 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 dual targeted energy means better results with lower overall energy output – assuring the highest level of safety and comfort. Other systems for Laser Hair Removal using only one energy source and simply can’t compare.
Does Laser Hair Removal hurt?
Each individual experience varies with Laser Hair Removal. However, most people only feel a slight pin prick, or rubber band snap, sensation. For your added safety and comfort, the Elos Laser Hair Removal technology features an advanced patient comfort system.
This system monitors your skin and keeps it at a cool temperature during the procedure. We go over the treated area twice with the laser. In between passes, we apply an ice pack for extra comfort during the Laser Hair Removal process.
Why are repeated sessions of Laser Hair Removal necessary?
Hair goes through 3 different cycles: Anagen, Catagen, and Telogen. Anagen refers to the growth stage of hair in which Laser Hair Removal treatment works best on. The hairs, in this stage, have a blood supply that can be served by Laser Hair Removal. The Catagen, and Telogen stages do not have a blood supply and are considered dormant.
While one Laser Hair Removal treatment may have long lasting effects, repeated Laser Hair Removal treatments are necessary for best results to catch the hairs during their different stages of hair growth. Hair growth may appear after 6-8 treatments but it will be thinner, lighter in color and at a slower growing rate than before.
