If you suffer from rosacea, elōs SR may be right for you. Let’s consider some basic facts about rosacea and why elōs SR could be the answer you’ve been waiting for.
Rosacea is a condition that causes your skin to appear red and discolored. It can often be confused with acne or allergic reactions, but the condition is much different. Rosacea causes blood vessels to become visible in the face, and small, red, pus-filled bumps may form on the skin as well. Flares of rosacea can last for weeks or even months. The condition is more common in women than in men, and tends to occur in people over the age of 30.
While the exact causes of rosacea are still yet to be determined, the following factors play a role in the prevalence of the condition:
- Genetics/family history
- Fair skin that has been sun damaged
- History of smoking
What Is elōs SR?
elōs SR is a safe, gentle, non-invasive approach to skin care that uses carefully controlled laser technology. Because of how gentle and delicate the treatment is on the skin, elōs SR is ideal for use on the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands.
How Does elōs SR Work?
elōs SR brings together two advanced approaches to skin rejuvenation: intense pulsed light (IPL) technology and bi-polar radio frequency (RF). This combination of RF and optical energy helps break up pigmentation issues on the surface layer of the skin while stimulating collagen production in underlying layers of the skin. This results in better overall complexion as well as a more vibrant appearance.
What Is elōs SR Treatment Like?
During elōs SR treatment, a handheld appliance is placed against the problem-areas of the skin. The elōs SR handpiece delivers carefully transmitted head and light energy into the skin. Patients may notice a mild stinging sensation as this occurs, but that’s it as far as discomfort. The overall treatment time takes around 30 minutes, and patients are able to return to their normal activities without any downtime.
That’s all there is to it.
How Effective Is elōs SR for Rosacea?
elōs SR can reduce the severity and appearance of rosacea flares. While results are visible within days of treatment, it’s generally ideal for patients to undergo three to five treatments spaced four-to-six weeks apart.
Other Problems elōs SR Can Treat
In addition to rosacea, elōs SR can treat the following blemishes, pigmentation flaws, and skin texture issues:
- Sun damage spots
- Broken capillaries
- Spider veins
