Skin treatments are being reinvented with the new technologies available today to help both women and men look and feel their best. More and more non-invasive techniques are available to help you get the skin you want without undergoing surgery. Elos Plus is a new aesthetic technology that can eliminate common skin problems like fine lines, wrinkles and sunspots. It’s especially useful for significantly reducing acne scarring.
How Elos Plus Works
The Elos Plus system uses bipolar radio frequency (RF) beams to heat up the skin and encourage healing, tightening and elasticity through collagen and elastin production. This energy is through two closely positioned electrodes that transmit the beams that are aimed at targeted points on a patient’s skin. The energy is delivered to the skin in the form of sharp pulses that can be increased or decreased in their intensity according to the type of skin and skin imperfections being treated.
The energy flows down one electrode, deep into the dermis of the skin, and up the other electrode. This keeps the intense energy from overheating the skin, but delivering just the right amount of energy to heat the dermis and stimulate the development of collagen and elastin, as the heated skin heals over time. It does all this without damaging the epidermis. This has a rejuvenating and repairing effect on the skin, making it perfect for reducing skin blemishes and wrinkles.
Benefits of Using Elos Plus for Acne Scars
Since the Sublative Rejuvenation system penetrates into the skin, it leaves the epidermis unaffected. This translates into little to no down time after treatments. Even though it may take 3 to 5 treatments to get optimum results, the treatments sessions are short and convenient.
The intensity levels of the energy beams can be easily adjusted for all skin types. These include light to dark skin and dry to oily skin. There is no risk of overheating the skin, leading to injury, because the Elos Plus system provides real-time skin feedback to the practitioner. It constantly measures the temperature of the skin at every given moment during the procedure and will terminate the pulse of energy immediately if the skin begins to overheat.
This technique is almost completely painless because skin-cooling technologies are used during the procedure. There is no down time needed after each session and recovery usually takes about 2 days, but most patients can go back to wearing makeup the following day.
Precautions & General Advice
People interested in receiving acne scar treatment with the Elos Plus Sublative Rejuvenation system should not expose their skin to the sun, especially for tanning purposes, for at least 2 to 4 weeks before being treated. Remember that, after the collagen and elastin production process has kicked in, the results of the treatments are long-lasting. However, the full results of the treatments might not be evident for a few months up to a year. Some further treatments might be necessary after this time to adjust or maintain the results.
