Long term hair reduction (often known as permanent laser hair removal) with ELOS.
ELOS hair reduction – for all hair and skin types
Banish unwanted hair regardless of your skin colour and whether you hair is blonde, white, red, grey or dark.
A safer, more effective choice for hair reduction is eclipsing the already popular Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) with bi-polar radio frequency energies to safely treat unwanted hair for all skin types. Unlike IPL alone, ELOS can treat people who were previously disadvantaged and have been turned away due to their skin or hair colour.
The perception with the general public today is that the term “permanent laser hair removal” implies exactly so. How far from the truth this is. There is nothing available today in the market anywhere that can permanently (implying forever) remove all hairs from an area. The more accurate term for such a treatment is “long term hair reduction”. Hair is dramatically reduced over a course of treatments on a long term basis, but certainly not permanently.
How does it work?
Gentle light and electric energies combine to damage the hair follicle. This disables the follicle from growing hair, which means that gradually over several treatments, there is a long-term reduction in the amount of hair in that area.
What kind of results can be expected?
Each treatment will result in less hair coming back, as well as hair growing progressively lighter in colour, becoming finer and also slowing regrowth. It takes more than one treatment to affect all the follicles growing in an area. Most people achieve satisfactory clearance after 4-8 treatments, however, individual results vary depending on medical and genetic factors. Lighter coloured hair may require more treatments than darker coloured hair.
Most people achieve satisfactory clearance after 4-8 treatments, which are usually performed every 1-2 months. This depends on individual factors that the practitioner will discuss during consultation.
How does does it all 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. The ELOS system also has a built in cooler at the head (point of contact) which will significantly increase comfort levels during the procedure.
What happens after?
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 3-4 weeks and there may be a short period of irregular hairlessness in the area until the conclusion of the course.
Who is suitable?
ELOS will suit anybody seeking a long-term solution to shaving, waxing, plucking or electrolysis. There are a few medical conditions that contra-indicate people from treatment that the practitioner will discuss during consultation.
