Elos Plus Laser

Do you have freckles, sun damage, or red patches that you’d like to minimize? If so, it may be time to consider an Elos Plus treatment. This is a noninvasive laser treatment that helps even out your skin tone and leaves your skin looking and feeling softer and smoother—all without minimal recovery time.

 

What is the Elos Plus laser? Like all lasers, it uses light energy to target discoloration in the skin: in this case, tiny blood vessels that cause redness and brown pigment that causes discoloration. Read more...

 

What is the Elos Plus used for? I use the Elos Plus most often to treat the face, neck, chest, and hands, although I’ve used it on other parts of the body including the back, arms, legs, and feet. Read more...

 

What should I know before my Elos Plus treatment? You’ll get the best results if you’re not tan, so I recommend that patients wait until their tan fades. Read more...

 

What’s it like to get an Elos Plus treatment? First, I’ll give you laser goggles to protect your eyes and my assistant will apply a thin layer of cold, clear gel all over the area to be treated. Read more...

 

What will I look like afterward? You’ll look a little pink and feel a bit warm, but not uncomfortable. Read more...

 

How many treatments do I need? Most of my patients see good results after three to five treatments, spaced a month apart, although some people may need more sessions. Read more...

 

How long do the results last? The redness and brown spots may return over time, depending on how much you had and how long they were there before treatment, and how diligent you are with your skin care routine. Read more...
