Alexandrite laser and other apparatus used in hair removal. Practical comparison. Part II / Elos - Hair Removal (ELOS-epilation)
2. Elos - Hair Removal
Recently, the most aggressively market
technique is "Elos - hair removal”.
We need only a little "digging on
the internet" to see what Elos Hair Removal is nothing but an
attempt to breathe new Life in the disappointing result, an
increasing number of customers photo epilation.
The operating principle of this method
implies the combined action of light energy (photo epilation) and
radio wave energy (RF) in the same housing Elos-apparatus.
Lets try to understand how this
Since the action of RF-energy on the
fabric is manifested mainly in the form of heat we suggest that the
lack of power light energy hair removal should increase the
additional heating by radio waves.
That is the procedure for Elos hair
removal heating of skin tissue should be two kinds of effects -
RF-energy and broadband light IPL (photo epilation).
However, in practice, most of the work
itself takes all the same light flash IPL!
And this fact is easy to check.
Try to compare experiences and results,
respectively: to limit and reduce the effect of RF increased by 10%
Power light flash. And vice versa - try to completely remove the
power light flash IPL and try to feel heated only by RF. Now compare
the feeling and the result is called - feel the difference!
The implications are clear.
For me personally, when performing such
experiments I could not feel the difference.
Maybe it will turn the reader?
For a more complete picture can be
added the "Elos - rejuvenation" technique of Elos hair
removal, that works with exactly the opposite, that is, the main
effect is achieved by RF-energy and pulse of light is played here
Thus we can conclude that the creators
of "Elos - hair removal" went along the following path -
took two techniques – photo epilation and lift the skin flap with
the help of the RF-energy, combined them into one unit and expressed
development of combined treatments.
Beautiful and competent marketing ploy!
Therefore, the comparison "Elos -
epilation and Alexandrite laser hair removal is almost similar to
photo hair removal IPL.
