Treat Pigmentation Problems with Advanced elōs Technology
In addition to cosmetic, general and restorative dentistry, Dr. O’Dell provides skin rejuvenation treatments to enhance his patients’ well-being and confidence. Sun exposure and the aging process can begin to rob your skin of its natural beauty. If you are bothered by brown spots, spider veins, or other pigmentation issues, you can refresh the appearance of your skin with elōs SR skin rejuvenation. Dr. Van O’Dell Cosmetic & Family Dentistry offers elōs and other cosmetic skin treatments for patients in North Little Rock, AR, and surrounding communities.
Innovative elōs SR can comfortably fade pigmented skin imperfections anywhere on the body.
More Advanced Skin Rejuvenation
Intense pulsed light (IPL) technology has been used for years to provide aesthetic and therapeutic skin treatments. IPL employs broad-spectrum pulsing light to treat a variety of conditions, including:
- Broken capillaries or spider veins
- Brown spots from sun damage
- Birth marks
Advanced elōs SR is the only IPL technology that combines bi-polar radio frequency (RF) with optical energy – an improvement that provides a more comfortable experience for patients. This treatment is remarkably effective, without the pain, inflammation, blistering and scabbing that can occur with traditional IPL photofacials and conventional lasers.
What elōs SR Can Do
Innovative elōs SR treatments gradually lighten pigment issues and vascular imperfections, with dramatic results achieved in three to five 30-minute sessions. The targeted combination of light and RF energy work to stimulate underlying collagen production and break up pigmented surface lesions on the skin. Patients can see a fresher, more youthful complexion free of photo-damage or other discoloration. Safe, gentle elōs technology can be used on the face, neck, hands, arms, or chest – virtually anywhere you would like to see smoother, blemish-free skin.
Skin rejuvenation with elōs can easily fit into any busy schedule. Because there is no downtime required, you can go about your normal activities immediately after treatment.
About the Procedure
The elōs SR treatment is simple and involves minimal discomfort. The handheld appliance is placed against the patient’s clean, moistened skin, transmitting energy that feels like a small burst of heat or a mild sting. Most patients find the mild discomfort very tolerable, and usually experience no pain or sensitivity after the procedure.
Skin rejuvenation with elōs SR can also easily fit into any busy schedule. Because there is no downtime required, you can go about your normal activities immediately after treatment.
Results and Risks
After treatment, your skin may look a bit pink for a short period of time. Treated dark spots may temporarily appear more pronounced before they begin to lighten. However, elōs patients do not usually experience the swelling and other possible side effects of traditional IPL skin treatments.
Most patients see results after the first treatment, with continuing improvement as the days pass. Depending upon the condition of your skin, you may achieve your desired results after only three procedures. Some patients may require further treatment with four or five sessions. Final results should be visible a few weeks after your final procedure, and you can maintain your refined complexion with a single touch-up treatment every four to six months.
