Leg Veins and Vascular Treatments

About the Treatment

elos™ is the first and only technology that uses combined energies to effectively and gently reduce the appearance of problem veins on the legs and face. elos™ is truly the next generation of safe and effective vein treatment technology. Combined Bi-Polar Radio Frequency and Light energies precisely target and heat the unwanted vein while protecting the surrounding skin.

How Leg Vein and Vascular Treatments Work

The unique elos™ combination of light and radio frequency (RF) energies provides controlled selective thermolysis to vascular lesions including telangiectasias and leg veins up to 4mm in diameter. The applicator also includes built-in contact cooling which ensures additional epidermal protection and comfort for the patient. Bi-Polar RF is controllable and predictable. The Bi-Polar Radio Frequency of elos technology flows between the two electrodes of the application head, delivering maximum targeted energy to the treatment area.

Procedure & Results

Improvement may be seen after a single treatment. The total number of required treatment sessions depends on the extent and depth of the vascular lesions. Maximum clearance is typically achieved within 1-3 treatment sessions. This is a no-downtime procedure. Many patients return to normal activities immediately after treatment.


Before treatment, try to avoid the sun for 4-6 weeks before your treatment, or use a good sunblock on the area you will be having treated. If you have gotten tan on the area recently, please notify us. Sunless tanning products should be avoided. Don't apply any sort of products to the area. This includes lotions, Vitamin A products, makeup and perfume. For those with extremely sensitive skin, a mild topical anaesthetic may be used prior to treatment.

Potential Side Effects & Post-treatment

After treatment, mild sunburn-like sensation is expected. This usually lasts 2-24 hours but can persist up to 72 hours. Mild swelling and/or redness may accompany this, but it usually resolves in 2-3 days. Apply ice or cold packs to treatment area for 10-15 minutes every hour for the next four hours as needed. Until redness has completely resolved avoid aggressive scrubbing and exfoliants, applying cosmetics to treated area, swimming, especially in pools with chemicals, such as chlorine, hot tubs and jacuzzi, activities that cause excessive perspiration, and sun exposure to treated areas. Apply an SPF 30 or greater sunscreen daily.

Please inform us of any of the above conditions so that we may assess your treatment possibilities.

Is elos vein treatment right for me?
