ELOS and Laser Hair Removal. How to DO It?
Elos and laser hair removal give satisfactory results in long-term thick black hair. Hirsutism is the abnormal growth of terminal hair in women in male-pattern (androgen-dependent) sites, such as the face and chest. Hypertrichosis refers to excess hair growth in any body area that is not androgen-dependent. Although hypertrichosis is often a primarily cosmetic problem, it may also represent a cutaneous sign of an underlying systemic disease. To ensure long-term hair reduction in these conditions, we combine three technology, light, laser, and radiofrequency. Electro-Optical Synergy (ELOS) or, in short, E-light technology combines electrical (conducted radiofrequency (RF)) and optical (laser/light) energies. The general idea of this method is to reduce the intensity – and thus, the potential side-effects of optical power (laser or light) by combining it with bipolar radiofrequency (RF). Based on this combination, E-light technology is more tolerated in all skin phototypes and more effective in removing lightly pigmented hair and thin hair. The large spot size of the light energy makes it easy to treat large surface areas such as the back, chest, and legs. Seventy to ninety of the total hair amount is reduced for many years after four to six-session. Hair that does grow is often much more delicate and lighter in color.
