"The most cutting edge in age defying skin health management. We utilize the Intense Pulsed Light system together with Radio Frequency Oscillation (ELOS), a noninvasive medical procedure that effectively deletes years from your face, neck, midsection and hands without disturbing your skin. Erase the presence of rosacea, sun harm, spider veins, and uneven skin tones. The Syneron Elos Fotofacial skin revival methodology joins energies (light pulse framework with radio oscillation waves) to delicately restore healthy skin. There is no down time and patients may return to daily activities quickly following Elos application."
