The field of anti-ageing has a breakthrough treatment with no downtime. The new technology, elos Plus, allows doctors to treat all three layers of the skin in about 40 minutes _ a perfect remedy to look fresh for the Songkran holiday season’s Instragram moments.
What’s the highlight of this technology?
The elos Plus takes advantage of the varying penetration capabilities of laser, infrared, visible light and radiofrequency energy and creates a perfect optical combination in order to reach specific penetration depths, with unprecedented efficiency for each application. This allows the forward-thinking technology to provide deep dermal penetration for a more effective treatment than just laser alone.
Its controlled, consistent and predictable dermal heating feature of the targeted tissues initiates neocollagenesis, resulting in immediate and long-term improvements of wrinkles and facial contour. The combination of energies also means laser light can be lowered by up to 60%, resulting in safer and more comfortable procedures.
Who is it for?
One of the major advantages of the elos Plus is its sheer versatility. This multi-application platform has 10 different capabilities to cater to and individualise treatments to suit any patient. However, I’d say that’s it ideal for men and women in their late-20s up until the age of 40, an age when you start seeing the first signs of skin ageing and sun damage, such as sun spots, crepe-like skin texture and a slight sagging of the facial and neck skin.
At this age, the treatment will help you hold on to youthful skin longer than those who are not doing anything at all. This technology is also a good choice for those whose skin has undergone intensive treatments and just need maintenance.
When is the best time to get it done?
The elos Plus safely and comfortably fades the appearance of skin imperfections. So if you’ve got brown and red spots caused by age, sun exposure or broken capillaries, you can get it done. If you want to glow just before the Songkran holidays, you can get an appointment a day or two before as there is no recovery time.
Quite a few patients come back after a holiday with the feedback that, as days go by, while the other travellers begin to appear tired, they look even more fresh each day. This is simply because the results keep improving and last for about three months. You can even choose to indulge in the therapy after the holidays if your Songkran festival trip involves a lot of sun exposure.
How to prepare for a session?
There is really nothing to prepare for. Like for all other sessions, consult your doctor about your condition or your interest in getting this three-layer skin improvement session done. And if your doctor recommends it, then you’ll need about 40 minutes to an hour for the procedure after which you are free to get back to your routine and run your errands. A full series of three to six treatments every three to four months is recommended to obtain better results.
How much does it cost?
The treatment should cost you between 10,000-15,000 baht for a complete skin rejuvenation, as elos Plus is the first of its kind to penetrate all three layers of the skin simultaneously _ and treat it. This offers better results than getting all three different treatments done one after another, due to synergy.
