The elōs Plus system offers noninvasive deep skin rejuvenation by combining intense pulsed light and radiofrequency energy into a single treatment that’s sometimes called a photofacial.
Previous generation skin rejuvenation systems typically use either one approach or the other, but elōs Plus delivers the benefits of both approaches for full skin rejuvenation.
Your skin rejuvenation treatment fights a number of aging skin issues. Each component of the treatment helps with different problems.
Intense pulsed light, also called photorejuvenation, focuses on vascular and pigmented lesions. That includes small blood vessels like spider veins, redness like rosacea, and pigmentation like melasma and age spots. Both vascular and pigmented lesions typically improve by 50-75%.
Radiofrequency energy delivers measured heat to the dermis, the thick underlayer where you make collagen and elastin. That prompts collagen and elastin renewal, which smooths texture and lessens mild-to-moderate lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. Skin firmness, texture, and wrinkles typically improve by up to 70%.
The treatment can help turn back the clock without surgery.
Before your treatment at Sargon Dental, Dr. T applies a topical anesthetic. That helps minimize any discomfort during your treatment.
For your treatment, Dr. T applies a conductive cooling gel in the treatment areas, which helps maximize light delivery while minimizing heat. Then, she gently moves the treatment device as it emits pulses of light and radiofrequency impulses.
The session takes only around an hour total - 30 minutes to let your topical anesthetic go to work and 30 minutes for the actual treatment. Most patients return to work right away.
To get ideal results, most patients need four to five skin rejuvenation treatments. You typically have treatments every three weeks.
Depending on your skin type and needs, you might need to alternate microdermabrasion and elōs Plus skin rejuvenation sessions. Microdermabrasion can help you shed old skin cells, which means it maximizes light absorption and results.
With the elōs Plus system, skin rejuvenation is easier and faster than ever before. Learn how you can refresh your face at Sargon Dental by calling the office or clicking the online appointment tool now.
