elōs IPL for Freckles
By Van O'Dell, DDS on March 22, 2019
A few freckles can be lovely and endearing. Too many freckles may leave you feeling self-conscious about your appearance, especially now that spring is upon us. In order to even out the pigment of the skin, many people turn to creams and other products. That said, you may want to consider a visit to Dr. Van O’Dell Cosmetic & Family Dentistry.
Undergoing a non-surgical cosmetic procedure known as elōs SR skin rejuvenation could be what you need to improve the appearance of your skin. The team at our North Little Rock, AR family dentistry and cosmetic skin care center would like to go over the basics of elōs SR and why it may be ideal for you.
How elōs SR Works
elōs SR is a type of intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy that also uses radio frequency (RF) energy. The IPL technology sends pulses of light across the surface of the skin to promote cosmetic enhancements, while the RF technology helps ensure that the benefits extend into deeper layers of the skin for optimal results.
The procedure itself is quite quick and simple to sit through, with patients experiencing little pain. Since no incisions are made, there is no downtime required after the 30-minute session is completed.
Conditions elōs SR Can Treat
elōs SR is an ideal cosmetic skin care treatment for the following issues:
- Sun damage
- Skin discoloration
- Broken capillaries
- Spider veins
