The Aurora combines a broad-band pulsed light source and bi-polar RF (radio frequency) for the treatment of unwanted hair, unwanted pigmented and vascular skin lesions, and active acne. There are currently 3 different applicators that can be used on the Aurora, each with a specific range of filtered light spectrum.
What is the difference between the DS, SR, AC, and SRA applicators?
These differ in their wavelengths emitted that allows for the treatment of a variety of skin conditions.
What makes the Aurora unique for hair removal, skin rejuvenation and acne treatment?
Incorporating bi-polar RF into the energy pulse adds a dimension of thermal effect which cannot be achieved by light or laser alone. Some of the obvious benefits of adding RF to the energy pulse are:
- RF has no relationship with melanin, therefore can penetrate the melanin barrier and access the dermal structures without epidermal interruption; this allows effective treatments with a high level of patient comfort, high safety margin and little to no down-time
- RF has profound heating effect on the follicle, vasculature and fibroblasts for collagen stimulation providing enhanced treatment outcomes
- Impedance Safety Measurement (ISM) readings allow direct feedback monitoring for clinician confidence in treatment settings on every pulse
How does Skin Rejuvenation with elōs work?
The combined radio frequency and light energies of elōs technology precisely and safely target and fade pigmented lesions such as freckles and sun-spots and lighten spider vessels and redness from rosacea.
Is Skin Rejuvenation with elōs right for me?
elōs works well for most skin types.
When can I expect to see results?
Over the course of 5 or 6 treatment sessions, most people see a gradual and continual improvement of their skin tone. The total number of required sessions varies depending on the condition of your skin. During your initial consultation, your medical practitioner will personalize your treatment schedule for maximum results.
What is the average number of treatments for AC?
Active acne is treated for 8 sessions performed twice weekly, followed by maintenance treatments at bi-weekly intervals. Improvement in acne lesion size may not be noticed until half-way through the initial treatment series (after 2 weeks or 4 sessions).
How does acne treatment with elōs work?
Acne occurs when a sebaceous oil gland surrounding a hair follicle becomes clogged with oil and dead skin cells. Bacteria grow in this clogged environment and causes infection and acne blemishes.
The combined radio frequency and light energies of elōs technology penetrate the skin to precisely target and destroy active acne-causing bacteria, while also reducing the excessive production of sebaceous oil. Treatment helps diminish active acne and speeds the healing of existing acne.
When can I expect to see results?
It depends on the severity of your acne. The more severe it is, the longer it may take for the difference to become noticeable. During your initial consultation, your medical practitioner will personalize your treatment schedule for maximum results.
Does it hurt?
No. elōs acne treatment is very comfortable and requires no topical anesthetics or other skin preparations. For your added safety and peace of mind, elōs technology features an advanced patient comfort system, which monitors your skin and keeps it at a soothing cool temperature during the procedure.
Treatment with elōs is easy. There’s no surgery, no sedation, and no downtime. And most procedures take 30 minutes or less.
