What is elōs technology?
Elos technology is a unique combination of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)
and RF (Radio Frequency) that uses gentle pulses of two targeted
energies to penetrate deeper below the skin dermis than laser and IPL,
more effectively targeting the hair follicle. mē uses a low overall
energy output, subsequently providing treatment times significantly
faster than home IPL along with higher levels of safety and comfort even
on darker skin tones (suitable for skin tones 1-5).

When to use mē
Following multiple clinical tests a precise treatment schedule has been
formulated to provide the most effective results. Perform the first
treatments every two weeks for the first six weeks. Following the
initial course of treatments, a simple top up treatment can be completed
as hair appears. Although it varies by individual, you can expect up to
3 months between treatments. As you progress, you will notice longer
and longer intervals between top-up treatments and the hairs will be
fewer and fewer. A small number of hairs will still appear after the
initial course of treatment, success is dependent the growth phase of
the hair follicles at the time of treatment.
How does mē work?
A pulse of elōs (RF + IPL) is emitted for a fraction of a second. The
IPL energy is converted to thermal energy, heating up the hair shaft and
the hair follicle. The RF energy is attracted to the pre-heated
follicle, heating it further and treating it, permanently disabling the
follicle and preventing hair re-growth. Effective treatment is dependent
on the growth phase of the hair follicles at the time of treatment, but
by following the recommended treatment schedule you will be able to
benefit from permanent hair reduction.

Simply, how does the mē my elōs hair-removal system work?

Frequency (RF) destabilises it, giving you smoother skin.

I used mē my elōs last week: Why do I see hair?
