E-Light Laser System
What does the E-Light do?
E-Light is a complete facial treatment system using combined energy technology of Bi-Polar Radio Frequency (RF) and Broad Spectrum Light. There are currently five different applicators that can be used on the E-Light, each with a specific range of filtered light spectrum.
The 5 different applications are:
- • SKIN REJUVENATION (SR Applicator)
- • SKIN TIGHTENING VIA RADIO FREQUENCY
- • HAIR REMOVAL (HR Applicator)
- • ACNE TREATMENT (AC Applicator)
- • VEIN/PIGMENTATION REMOVAL (PR Applicator) SKIN REJUVENATION (SR Applicator)
How does skin rejuvenation with SR technology work?
The SR 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 treatment series (3-5).
What results can one expect from the SR treatment?
Each SR 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 treatments?
Treatments are repeated every month for a total of 3-5 treatments.
What happens after each SR 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 SR? Photo damaged skin, eurhythmic from Rosacea, Telangiectasias and pigmented lesions typically require 3- 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 safe?
Treatment is very safe for the skin. There are many advances in the SR 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. Both have been used for decades in medicine, surgery, and aesthetics without adversity.
How are SR treatments tolerated?
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 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 face, neck, chest, hands, and arms.
How does Skin Tightening via Wrinkle Treatment with ST work?
The ST procedure combines safe and effective levels of infrared light and bipolar radio frequency energies to remodel the dermal layer of the skin by stimulating new collagen growth. Both laser and radio frequency have been used separately for decades in medicine and surgery, but the ST exclusively combines infrared light and bipolar radio-frequency energy for ideal treatment outcomes with a very low risk of side effects and virtually no downtime.
What results can one expect from the ST treatment?
ST can improve skin laxity and sagginess of the face, neck and some body areas such as the abdomen or upper arms. Skin texture can also be smoothed out by the tightening and firming effect of treatment. This treatment is performed non-abrasively, which means this is a non-invasive procedure. Most people leave the treatment office with only slight pinkness or no pinkness at all. Patients can return to normal activities immediately.
How many treatments are required?
Most patients will have between 1-3 treatments. How often are treatments done? Treatment sessions are typically 4-6 weeks apart.
How are ST treatments tolerated?
The ST procedure is well tolerated by most patients without any topical anesthetic or other means of analgesia. The treatment tip is chilled so it provides contact cooling to the skin surface for added comfort.
Is treatment with ST safe?
ANY medical aesthetic procedure has risk of side effects such as superficial blistering, crusting, and pigment changes in the skin. These risks are rare and usually quickly resolved.
Who should be treated with ST?
All skin colors can be treated with the ST for laxity, sagging, loss of elasticity, or textural irregularities. Treatment can be done on face, neck, and most body areas. Individual client candidacy should be discussed with each client. HAIR REMOVAL (HR Applicator)
What is the average number of treatments for HR hair removal?
The average number of treatments is 4 to 8 to achieve clearance, but some patients may require more or less. Men’s backs and chests, facial hair and hormonal hair take more than the average number of sessions, usually 8+.
ACNE TREATMENT (AC Applicator) How does Acne Treatment work?
The AC uses a specific spectrum of light that targets the bacteria that actually causes acne. When this bacterium proliferates in clogged pores it can cause bumpy and inflamed acne lesions. The AC combines light and gentle radio-frequency energies to decrease proliferation of acne-causing bacteria, and may also affect the sebaceous gland from over-production of oil and promote healing of the skin after acne breakouts.
What results can one expect from the AC treatment?
Over a series of treatments with the AC, most patients notice a faster healing time of existing acne lesions. Frequency and severity of acne lesions should subside as the treatments go on. As well, on-going treatments can help to prevent acne breakouts and promote skin healing after acne breakouts by evening out skin tone and texture.
How frequently does one need AC treatments?
Treatments are done twice a week for four-six weeks. Each treatment session takes approximately 15 minutes. After the initial series of treatments, additional treatments may be prescribed spread out over a longer interval time to fine-tune your therapy and help maintain the results.
What happens after each AC treatment?
Temporary pinkness in the skin lasts a very short time, and most people return to work or normal activities immediately after treatment. Every patient responds differently but most patients report that they notice improvement as early as three weeks into the treatment series.
What is the average number of treatments for AC?
Active acne is treated for 8 sessions performed twice weekly, followed by maintenance treatments at bi-weekly intervals. Improvement in acne lesion size may not be noticed until halfway through the initial treatment series (after 2 weeks or 4 sessions).
Is treatment with AC safe?
Treatment is very safe for all skin tones, even very dark skin. There are many advances in the AC technology that make it one of the safest acne treatment systems available. There is no long-term health hazards from light or radio frequency energies used in the AC. Both have been used for decades in medicine, surgery, and aesthetics without adversity.
How are AC treatments tolerated?
The sensation is often described as “hot pinch” feeling. The sensation only lasts for fraction of a second, and you may feel warmth or a tingling sensation for a short time afterward. The cooling tip that touches the skin surface makes the treatment both comfortable and safe. Most patients do not use topical anesthetic to numb the skin for this procedure.
Who should get AC treatment for acne?
For those wanting alternatives to traditional topical or oral therapies for acne and not responding to traditional acne solutions. Acne on all body areas can be treated with the E-light. There are a few medical conditions that contraindicate people from treatment.
