WHAT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?

Treatment is very safe for the skin. There are many advances in the technology that make elōs 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 elōs. Both optical and radio frequency have been used for decades in medicine, surgery, and aesthetics without adversity.

HOW DOES HAIR REMOVAL WITH ELŌS™ DS APPLICATOR WORK?

The DS 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.

HOW FREQUENTLY DOES ONE NEED ELŌS HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENTS?

The treatments are usually performed every 2-3 months, but this depends on individual factors. The average number of treatments is 6-8 to achieve satisfactory clearance, but some patients may require more or less. Men’s backs and chests, facial hair and hormonal hair take more than the average number of sessions, usually 8 or more.
