Elos Fotofacial®

The Elos Fotofacial is a photorejuvenation® treatment that safely fades the appearance of skin imperfections such as those caused by:

  • Sun damage, freckles, brown spots.
  • Red capillary veins, flushing and redness.
  • Acne scarring.

How does the Elos technology rejuvenate the skin?

The gentle light and electric energies break up the pigment and/or blood in lesions and stimulates collagen restructuring and/or production, restoring the skin to a more youthful state.

What kind of results can you expect from an Elos Fotofacial?

Each Elos Fotofacial treatment will result in a gradual lightening and improvements of pigmented and vascular imperfections. Textural improvements are appreciated towards the end of the treatment series.

How many treatments will I need?

For best results, we recommend a series of 2-6 treatments repeated every 4 weeks. When you come in for your consultation/initial treatment, we can discuss a treatment plan with you and advise according to your skin and the results you are after.

Is there any downtime?

Your skin may temporarily look a little pink, but most people can return to work and their daily activities immediately. For freckles and age spots, you may experience a process that is called ‘miloing’ following your treatment. This is where the pigment goes darker for 3-7 days before fading.

Who would benefit from this treatment?

The Elos Fotofacial is great for anyone who would like to improve the signs of sun damage, flushing in the skin (such as pigmented and vascular irregularities), uneven or rough skin texture, acne scarring and would like to achieve a smoother, clearer complexion - however, this is not limited to just the face as the Fotofacial is also a great treatment option for the face, neck, chest, hands and arms.
