Elos – skin rejuvenation
Our skin is considerably changing with aging. Fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation spots and flake veins. The skin is loosen and loses its elasticity. These changes are increasing in cases of the regular influence over the skin by the ultra-violate rays of the sun spectrum – photo-injured skin.
In our beauty clinic Lux-Medicus powered by the revolutionary elos Technology, the combination of energies offers a complete solution to the challenges of skin treatment with reduced overall required energy output — enabling safe, effective treatment. Highly selective light energies are absorbed by the hemoglobin and pigmented lesions, but not significantly absorbed by the normal dermis. Electrical energies selectively heat blood vessels — while minimizing the effect on pigmented structure.
The SRA-applicator of ELOS technology is the ultimate alternative of the surgical treatment. This is dermatological procedure where the pulse light 470-980 nm and the bi-polar radio-frequency are combined. The number of the therapeutic procedures is individually defined for each patient. Gradually lightening and more even skin tone, fading lesions, smoothening fine lines and wrinkles are observed in the treated areas.
- Smother, more even-toned skin
- Refined facial contour
- Improved firmness
- Increased elasticity
- Reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
How does skin rejuvenation with elos™ SRA Applicator technology work?
The SR/SRA uses focused light and bi-polar radio frequency energies to restore skin to a more youthful state. Brown spots (pigmented imperfections) from sun damage and aging, red blotchiness from spider vessels or rosacea (vascular imperfections), and uneven skin texture will improve over a treatment series.
What results can one expect from the SRA Applicator treatment?
Each SRA treatment will result in gradual lightening and improvement of pigmented and vascular imperfections. Textural improvements are appreciated towards the end of the treatment series.
How frequently does one need SRA treatments?
Treatments are repeated every month for usually a total of 5 treatments.
What happens after each SRA treatment?
Temporary pinkness in the skin lasts a very short time, and most people return to work or normal activities immediately after treatment. The improvement in pigmented and vascular irregularities can often be appreciated by the time you return for your next treatment a month later. Brown spots temporarily go darker before they lighten.
What is the average number of treatments for the SRA?
Photodamaged skin, erythema from Rosacea, Telangiectasias and pigmented lesions typically require 4- 5 treatment sessions. Some resistant vascular and pigmented lesions may require more than 5 sessions to achieve fading or improvement. Fine lines, pore size and superficial depressed scarring may also show noticeable softening after 4- 5 treatment sessions.
Is treatment with the SRA Applicator safe?
Treatment is very safe for the skin. There are many advances in the SRA technology that make it unparalleled for skin safety, without compromising effectiveness for treatment. There are no long term health hazards from light or electric energies used in the SRA. Both have been used for decades in medicine, surgery, and aesthetics without adversity.
How is the SRA Applicator treatment tolerated by the patient?
The sensation is often described as “hot pinch” feeling. The sensation only lasts for fraction of a second, and you may feel warmth or tingling sensation for a short time afterward. Most people tolerate treatment without topical anesthetic, but individuals who are more sensitive may prefer to have the skin numbed before treatment.
Who should get SRA Applicator treatment for Skin Rejuvenation?
Anyone who wants to improve the signs of sun damage and aging in the skin, such as pigmented and vascular irregularities, uneven or rough skin texture. Skin rejuvenation can be done on face, neck, chest, hands, and arms.
