How does skin rejuvenation with elos™ SR/SRA Applicator technology work?
The SR/SRA uses focused light and bi-polar radio-frequency energies to restore skin to a more youthful state. Brown spots (pigmented imperfections) from sun damage and aging, red blotchiness from spider vessels or rosacea (vascular imperfections), and uneven skin texture will improve over a series of treatments.
What results can one expect from the SR/SRA Applicator treatment?
Each SR/SRA treatment will result in gradual lightening and improvement of pigmented and vascular imperfections. Textural improvements are appreciated towards the end of the treatment series.
How frequently does one need SR/SRA Applicator treatments?
Treatments are repeated every month for a total of 5 treatments.
What happens after each SR/SRA Applicator treatment?
Temporary pinkness in the skin lasts a very short time, and most people return to work or normal activities immediately after treatment. The improvement in pigmented and vascular irregularities can often be appreciated by the time patients return for their next treatment a month later. Brown spots temporarily go darker before they lighten.
What is the average number of treatments for the SR/SRA?
Photo damaged skin, erythema from Rosacea, Telangiectasias and pigmented lesions typically require 4-5 treatment sessions. Some resistant vascular and pigmented lesions may require more than 5 sessions to achieve fading or improvement. Fine lines, pore size and superficial depressed scarring may also show noticeable softening after 4-5 treatment sessions.
Is treatment with the SR/SRA Applicator safe?
Treatment is very safe for the skin. There are many advances in the SR/SRA technology that make it unparalleled for skin safety, without compromising effectiveness for treatment. There are no long term health hazards from light or electric energies used in the SR/SRA. Both have been used for decades in medicine, surgery, and aesthetics without adversity.
How is the SR/SRA Applicator treatment tolerated by the patient?
The sensation is often described as hot pinch feeling. The sensation only lasts for fraction of a second, and you may feel warmth or tingling sensation for a short time afterward. Most people tolerate treatment without topical anesthetic, but individuals who are more sensitive may prefer to have the skin numbed before treatment.
Who should get SR/SRA Applicator treatment for Skin Rejuvenation?
Anyone who wants to improve the signs of sun damage and aging in the skin, such as pigmented and vascular irregularities, uneven or rough skin texture. Skin rejuvenation can be done on the face, neck, chest, hands, and arms.
