The Skin Tightening by Syneron™ is the newest non-surgical facial tightening treatment. It uses elôs technology. This revolutionary elôs technology is the first and only combined energy technology using the power of bipolar radio frequency and light energies. It is designed to be the safest, most effective and comfortable aesthetic technology available today. It takes the best quality of Titan and of Thermage and combines them in one machine.
Elôs uses a combination of radio frequency and light to isolate the treatment area and leave the surrounding skin free from potentially harmful side effects. This unique Matrix heating produces results at both the surface and deep dermal levels. That means that the combination of energies treating at multiple levels makes it possible to treat fine wrinkles at the surface while penetrating into the dermis to treat deeper wrinkles – all in the same procedure. There is no downtime and patients can return to work or their daily schedule with no problem.
The procedure takes between 30 and 60 minutes. Most patients will see significant improvement following 4 treatments. The number of treatments needed will depend on each individual’s skin type, the area being treated, the condition of the skin and level of skin damage. Like all skin treatments you should avoid sun exposure and tanning (including artificial tanning products and procedures) before and after your treatments. An SPF of 30 or higher should be used on treatment areas before and after the procedure.
