Skin rejuvenation is a safe method using the Elos technology. Elos combines radio frequency (RF) with a flash lamp (IPL). This unique technique has a built-in safety system and is, therefore, less damaging to the skin. Each pulse that enters the skin during skin rejuvenation treatment comes from two energy sources: bipolar radiofrequency (RF) and the flash lamp (IPL). The skin rejuvenation treatment consists of an average of five treatments with an interval of three weeks. Skin rejuvenation improves the texture and the complexion of the skin with each pulse by reducing the red vessels, pigmentation spots, and sun damage. Enlarged pores become smaller and wrinkles reduced to a minimum. The skin will look much smoother, healthier and younger after the treatment.

Which areas can be treated?
Face, neck, décolleté, hands and local scars on the legs

What results can one expect?
There will be a gradual improvement in the red color of the skin. Kegs are less visible; pigmentation spots and sun damage will fade; enlarged pores will shrink. Because of the heat that the pulse emits in the skin, the production of collagen and elastin is stimulated. This results in the reduction of wrinkles.

I would like a Skin Rejuvenation cure. What is the procedure?
During the intake interview with Beautyfix MedSpa, the objective will be discussed and if there are contraindications. We do a trial flash, and the next step is to plan the treatment.

What happens during the treatment?
Each treatment lasts about thirty minutes. After the skin has been cleaned, a gel is applied. This gel conducts the energy in the skin. The pulses can be experienced as slightly stimulating. After the treatment the skin may be colored light red. This is a standard reaction of the skin and will disappear within a few hours. Pigment stains generally become darker at first and a scab may form. This means that the skin is working the pigment outwards. These are average reactions, and these will disappear within a few days.

Who are the best candidates?
Those who suffer from rosacea, rosacea, flushing, vials, premature aging, sun damage or a healthier-looking skin. It is also suitable for people who do not want to undergo harsh laser treatments or chemical peelings or who do not want to interrupt work or social activities for an operation. After the skin rejuvenation treatment, all activities can immediately be picked up again.

Are there other treatments, such as peelings or laser that can achieve the same result?
With a peel, it is not possible to blur red spots. With laser it is often more intensive and painful, requires a more extended recovery period and will have to be performed by doctors. This treatment works exclusively on tightening and lifting the skin and reducing deeper wrinkles. Or make a combination with the microdermabrasion, where the skin is first stripped of the dead skin cells, by rubbing them very lightly. This allows the light to enter the skin even deeper. However, photo facial RF is the only treatment that tackles both pigmentation, red spots, enlarged pores and small wrinkles in a single flash.

How quickly do I see results?
After the first treatment, the skin will feel softer. More improvement will be seen after each treatment. On average, five procedures are required for optimal results. Sometimes additional treatments may be necessary. In general, a skin improvement of 50-75% is observed. We recommend to book maintenance treatment at least once every three months so that the complexion, texture and overall appearance of the skin remain optimal.
