Laser Hair Removal in Miami with ELOS
We understand how difficult it is to find the best medial spa with the laser that would be ideal for your skin type and tone. The information found online can be overwhelming. Our laser specialists at Avalon Medical Spa have extensive knowledge on laser physics and will always help you make the best choice. The science behind laser hair removal is pretty simple. Laser hair removal uses light energy to heat the hair follicle, which prevents it from growing hair in the future. Light travels in wavelengths. There are only three known wavelengths that effectively target the melanin in the hair follicle without affecting the surrounding tissue. These wavelengths are the Alexandrite (755nm), the ND YAG (1064nm) and the Diode (810nm).
The Alexandrite uses a 755nm wavelength which is part of the visible light spectrum. This is a shorter wavelenght that is also attracted to the melanin in the skin and is not ideal for clients with an olive complexion or darker. The ND:YAG (1064nm) is a longer wavelength that is not part of the visible light spectrum. This wavelength is still able to target the melanin chromophore but at a lower and safer rate. Making it a great alternative for the darker complexion client with melanin not only in their hair but also in their skin.
The Diode Laser uses the 810 nm wavelength – which is known as the GOLD STANDARD for laser hair removal. This wavelength targets melanin at the same level and strength at the Alexendrite. But since the 810nm wavelength is not part of the visible light spectrum is it absolutely safe on all skin tones and just as effective as the Alexandrite!
One of the most exciting advances in laser hair removal technology is incorporation of Radio Frequency (RF) energy and light energy for laser hair removal. Once the laser pulses, a beam of light is released. This beam of light heats the surrounding tissues as well as the the hair follicle. The RF energy then follows the laser light to add additional heat to the hair follicle without affecting the surrounding tissue! Unfortunately, the amount of light energy that can safely be directed to sub-epidermal targets, such as the hair follicle)is limited. Particularly in dark-skinned patients since the light will also be attracted to the melanin the skin.
The Elos revolutionary patented technology allows our laser technician to adjust the levels of optical energy and RF energy. Making this one of the most effective and safest. modalities on the market for laser hair removal! As an added benefit, RF energy also stimulates collagen in your skin by heating up the water molecules in the dermis. Who would not want to add a little extra youth to your skin while getting rid of unwanted hair!
Take a look at the diagrams below to have a visual of exactly how the Elos technology works for laser hair removal on all skin types.
The RF current, flowing between the two electrodes of the laser hand piece, has a greater preference to the pre-heated target. The heat lowers the resistance of the target chromophore/melanin resulting in more thermal impact on the hair follicle. More thermal impact means faster and better results!
IPL Photofacial with ELOS Technology
IPL Photofacial is one of the most effective procedures in treating any pigmentation issues and skin irregularities that you may experience. Sun damage is one of the most common concerns that our IPL Photofacial Miami clients are trying to address. In addition to sun spots, IPL Photofacail also targets the the sebaceous gland, causing it to produce less oil, making this an amazing acne treatment that actually works! Once your skin produces less oil, you will also notice a reduction in the size of your pores! Avalon Medical Spa is also able to effectively treat broken capillaries and those hard to treat discoloration scars from acne.
The Photofacial IPL system uses intense pulse light at (430nm and 1200nm) which includes a part of the visible spectrum. Since it is part of the visible light spectrum, clients with darker skin tones (such as skin type V and VI) are usually not the best candidates for an IPL. IPL is usually ideal for skin types I-III, however Syneron also took a step further by providing an additional hand piece with less energy for our skin type V clients. The SRA hand piece is the ferrari of all IPL systems on the market, providing you with the desired results at half the time. The SR hand piece uses less light energy and is therefore safe to use on darker sin. Take a look at our skin type chart below to help you determine which skin type is yours. Don’t forget to click on the image to enlarge it!
But this isn’t it! Our IPL Photofacial also uses the patented Elos technology of combining light energy with Radio Frequency energy. So what does this mean for your skin? The light energy travels through the laser applicator, once it penetrates the skin, it becomes heat energy and scatters through out the tissue.The amount of heat and how long it stays in the skin is limited for our IPL Photofail Miami darker skin clients.
Now once the laser pulsed, and the light turned into heat in your sub dermis layer of the skin. Then the heat will begin to be attracted to the target chromophore, in this case melanin. The stubborn sun spot will absorb some the scattered heat. Finally, the laser sends out its special trooper, RF energy to add additional heat and do the final push to dissipate the pigmentation. Since the skin was already preheated by the light energy, making it less dense, the RF energy does not have a lot of resistance or roadblocks to get to its final destination – your collection of overproduced melanin by the sun.
The Elos patten technology also adds a little more excitement by adding an additional hand piece with lower optical energy. The lower the optical energy, the lower the risk on the surrounding tissue, which means that clients from various origins can now safely get an IPL Photofacial Treatment. The SR hand piece still uses the Radio Frequency energy allowing it to safely and effectively do the job of a traditional IPL but on our Hispanic, Middle Eastern and Asian clients who were previously not able to undergo this miracle skin changer treatment with fewer risks of post inflammatory pigmentation.
Our Elos cutting edge technology also provides extraordinary safety precautions. Our skilled laser technicians have the ability to lower the optical energy and the RF energy OR by lowering just the optical energy and maintaining the strength of the RF treat darker skin tones without compromising their safety and most importantly, results!
An additional feature allows Avalon Medical Spa to customize the duration of the pulse (how long will the laser heat stay in your skin) from a short pulse to a long pulse. This enables our laser specialists to optimize for specific skin types and target issues such as hemoglobin (blood). By simply changing the settings of the laser and applying less pressure, the heat from the laser will coagulate the blood vessels and break down the stubborn post acne pigmentation scars.
By using radio frequency energy, our laser system is able to achieve deeper penetration into the tissue. Deeper penetration = better and faster results! A recent study showed a 92% patient satisfaction with an astonishing 75% improvement rate in skin texture and elasticity after a series of just 3 treatments.
Laser Skin Tightening with ELOS Technology
Collagen is the building block of our skin. It is a natural type of protein that makes up about 80% of the skin. The other 20% is made up of elastin and glycosaminoglycans. Collagen is what provides the tissue the strength, while elastin provides it with its stretching capability. As we age, our skin becomes thinner, drier, loose volume and form wrinkles due to loss of collagen and elastin. Unfortunately, our body stops producing collagen after the age of 20.
Elos Technology is now able to help you stop and reverse the signs of aging by stimulating your skin to produce new collagen at an accelerated rate. By using the combination of bi polar radio frequency and infrared light. The awesome part is that the results are instant and do not require and downtime! But how are we able to do that?
Radio Frequency (RF) is a method used in high frequency therapies which heat the target tissue and skin. The heat causes contraction and production new collagen in the dermis and the subcutaneous layer of the skin. This helps eliminate wrinkles, tone the skin and even clear up the skin from acne breakouts!
Our skin is also primarily made up of water, and water contains ions which act like an electrolyte. The RF energy changes the polarities of the electrodes, causing movement of the charged particles in the tissue. By changing the polarity of the electrodes, negative and positive particles start to move towards apposite poles. Frictional heat is created. The general heating of the tissues speeds up the biochemical reaction, dilatation of the blood vessels. The dilated blood vessels create better circulation and increase the speed at which our skin gets nutrients and removed unwanted toxins. The increased circulation also helps remove scared connective tissue and remove stored salts.
Bipolar RF of our Syneron Laser Skin Tightening treatment uses two electrodes which transmit the energy. The energy is highly targeted skin tightening of the dermis. Bipolar RF heats the skin to 45°C for a short moment which begins the remodeling and recreation of collagen. The collagen fibers begin to contract and straighten out which elevates the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Damaged, old collagen fibers also become damaged by the heat created by the RF energy and promote the natural skin ability to heal with production of NEW collagen fibers. The results speak for themselves, in just one treatment you will see a reduction of wrinkles, skin toning, rejuvenation and acne reduction.
