Elos® can combine bipolar radio frequency and light energies to produce amazing photo rejuvenation results. This technique allows us to precisely lighten or fade several different skin imperfections for people of most skin types. Darker skin types may need extra care and expertise but the team at Surface can provide this. Almost any body part can be treated, the most common being sun exposed areas such as the face, hands, chest, back or the shoulders. Hair bearing areas should be avoided as it can lead to unintended hair loss.
This technique can be used to reduce:
- Sun spots
- Age spots
- Spider veins
- Redness associated with Rosacea
Treatment of benign pigmented and vascular lesions. The targeted pigmented or vascular lesions absorb the light energy, raising the temperature of the target tissue. Then RF energy flows to the pre-heated area and elevates the temperature of the target to a safe and effective level, providing an overall improvement in skin appearance.

Patients will see results over time. Initially, your targeted areas will become darker before they are exfoliated away and will slough off with washing or daily activities. Most patients will usually need three to six treatments; however each patient is different so the number of treatment sessions will depend on your skin’s condition. The number of visits will be determined at your initial consult. Prior to treatment, it is important to avoid sun exposure and tanning for at least four weeks for optimal results.
Is it Painful?
Pain is reported to be minor due to the sapphire cooling tip that is equipped on the machine itself. There is little to no downtime with this corrective procedure. Patients report a mild sun-burn-like sensation post treatment.
All our photographs of before and after treatment results are examples only, and do not constitute an implied or any other kind of guarantee of the result of treatment procedures. Results can vary significantly between our clients. All our treatment results are subject to the individualities of each client.
Furthermore, all treatment procedures carry potential risks and complications which are described in detail in our treatment consents forms. These may include, but are not limited to, bleeding, infection, asymmetry, dissatisfaction with the result and the expense of further treatments to manage a complication (patient forms). If you have any questions regarding these potential risks and complications. Please discuss them with our doctors or aesthetic therapist prior to treatments.
Before undergoing a treatment, please be sure that you understand that YOUR actual results will likely VARY SIGNIFICANTLY from other patient’s results, including their BEFORE & AFTER photos.
This is quite important to understand — that EVEN when you feel that you look very similar to another client in their BEFORE images, your results will likely vary significantly — because you are a unique person. Every individual has NOT only a completely unique physique, but also uniquely individualistic body healing capacities, scarring tendencies and recovery processes — some of which are unpredictable even in very-healthy patients who rest adequately and do ALL the other right things before and after their procedure.
Please be noted, our doctors and aesthetic therapists offer you our highest expertise in our aesthetic procedures.
