Choosing a Medical Treatment for Beautiful Skin

Choosing a medical treatment solution for beautiful skin was once a confusing and difficult decision. Many methods and technologies promise the best results, but most fall short. Electro-Optical Synergy, also known as ELOS®, is a revolutionary technology that has changed everything.

What Conditions Can Be Treated with ELOS?
ELOS has proven to be the safest, most effective and comfortable solution for the superior results you want, to help with the following conditions:

  1. Comet Hair Removal
    Safe hair removal of all colors (including white, gray, red and blonde) and all skin types, including tanned skin. The number of necessary treatments depends on hair color and skin type, and the part of the face or body to be treated. Usually, four to six treatments are required for substantial hair reduction. Light hair will require a higher number of treatments.
  2. Aurora Skin Treatment
    Comfortably treat Rosacea, spider veins and skin imperfections caused by sun damage, as well as red and brown spots.
  3. Aurora Acne Treatment
    Clear up your skin through selective targeting of the sebaceous glands and acne bacteria.
  4. Polaris Wrinkle Treatment
    Treat fine wrinkles at the skin’s surface while penetrating into the dermis to treat deeper wrinkles – all in the same procedure, with no downtime.
  5. Polaris Leg Vein/Vascular Treatment
    Appearance of leg veins and facial vascular lesions fades away with speed and comfort.
  6. VelaSmooth Cellulite Treatment
    ELOS technology safely and effectively re-contours the skin surface for smooth, beautiful results.

How Does ELOS Work?
ELOS uses a unique combination of radio frequency and light to isolate the treatment area and leave the surrounding skin free from potentially harmful side effects. Using gentle pulses of two targeted energies means better results with lower overall energy output, assuring the highest level of safety and comfort. Other systems using only one energy source can’t compare. Many Hollywood stars and TV personalities rave about the Aurora FotoFacial and credit this procedure for the renewed health and vitality in their skin. Aurora and Polaris have even been featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show.

What Does an ELOS Procedure Feel Like?
Treatment with ELOS produces a slight tingling feeling, and on the most sensitive areas of the skin, patients may only feel a quick, light pinch. Side effects are very rare, and ELOS technology assures a higher comfort level than any laser technology available.

Is This a “No Downtime” Procedure?
Absolutely. ELOS procedures require no sedation. The average procedure takes less than 30 minutes to perform. Immediately following your procedure, you can return to work with no problem.
