What to Know About the Elos Plus Laser Hair Removal
Waxing and shaving are two of the most common forms of hair removal around the world. However, both can be uncomfortable, painful and need to be redone every few weeks anyway.
What if there was a way to remove hair once and for all in a painless way? Surely, you’ll have heard of the benefits of laser hair removal.
But, have you heard of the ELOS Plus system? This is a new hair removal machine which aims to get rid of pesky hair in a painless manner. That’s right, it’s pain-free.
Are you considering ELOS laser treatment? Read through this list to make sure you’re informed about the process.
1. The ELOS Plus System Requires Multiple Initial Treatments
When you’re having hair removed with this machine, you’ll not be in and out quickly. Instead, you’ll need to remove the hair which is visible but also the follicles under the skin.
Treatments are staggered to ensure hair is completely removed as it re-grows. This means the treatments are done every four to six weeks. (The timing completely depends on the area of your body you’re removing hair from.)
2. Follow-up Treatments are Required until Hair Loss is Complete
After your initial treatments are complete, you’ll then be able to go away with smooth, hairless skin.
However, re-growth may appear after about two months. If this is the case, don’t worry. You’re now ready for your follow-up treatments.
Depending on your hair follicles, it may be required that you have a few follow-ups. Once these are complete, you’ll need to look out for regrowth.
If no regrowth occurs within six months after a follow-up, your ELOS laser treatment is complete!
3. It’s Important to Prepare Properly Before and After Treatments
If a hair-free life sounds ideal to you, then you may want to know what to expect before, during and after treatment.
Firstly, before you receive ELOS laser treatment, you’ll need to:
- Shave the area a day before
- Avoid direct sunlight exposure on your skin
- Avoid skin medication a few days before
- Keep skin clean before treatment – this means no make-up or deodorant.
After your treatment, you’ll need to:
- Continue to avoid the sun
- Avoid any irritants on your skin
- Avoid tweezing or plucking any excess hair – it will be removed.
If you get this right, the risk of side effects will be lessened and you’ll have beautiful, hairless skin as a result.
4. Are There any Side Effects to Consider?
Now that you know about the treatments and what to expect, you may want to know any downsides to ELOS laser removal.
During your procedure, you can expect some discomfort. (If you’re used to waxing, this will not be anywhere near as painful!)
After treatment, there may be continued discomfort and swelling. If the treatment went badly, then blistering can be expected. But, those who regularly wax will likely find that this procedure is painless and a lot easier to endure.
