From lasers to elos--technological evolution
elos is the first and only technology that combines the power of both IPL (Intense Pulse Light) and RF (bipolar radio frequency). Developed by IPL inventor and patent holder Dr Shimon Eckhouse, this revolutionary technology effectively overcomes the safety and procedural limitations of laser and IPL devices.
elos technology is a unique combination of RF and IPL, using gentle pulses of two targeted energies to penetrate deeper below the skin dermis than laser and IPL. elos uses a lower overall energy output, subsequently providing treatment times significantly faster than IPL along with higher levels of safety and comfort even on darker skin tones (suitable for skin types 1-5).
me is the first and only elos professional technology hair removal device offering speed, safety and 10 years of proven clinical results.
How does me work?
elos technology uses a gentle pulse of two
targeted energies (IPL and RF) to penetrate deeper below the skin
dermis than laser and IPL, more effectively targeting the hair
A pulse of elos is emitted (low energy pulsed light + gentle RF), penetrating below the skin dermis
The light energy is converted to thermal energy, heating up the hair shaft and subsequently the hair follicle
The RF energy is attracted to the pre-heated follicle, heating it further, preventing hair re-growth
IPL and laser treatments only heat the hair shaft and rely on collateral damage to disable the follicle. In contrast, elos penetrates deeper below the skin dermis, precisely targeting the hair follicle to permanently disable it and prevent regrowth.
