The Power of elos ® Technology Syneron's VelaShape ® III and ELOS Plus ® Offer Value Plus Patient Satisfaction The versatility of elos plus has been great for my practice. – Craig Mezrow, MD If you are looking for a complete aesthetic package to jumpstart your medical aesthetics practice, Syneron's new VelaShape ® III coupled with ELOS Plus ® platform offer some distinct advantages. These two devices together will enable a practitioner to cover the full aesthetic treatment spectrum - from non-invasive cellulite treatment and body shaping to skin rejuvenation, in addition to vascular, hair removal, and skin rejuvenation. These are among the most in-demand procedures that consumers are asking for today. This dynamic duo from Syneron allows practitioners to grow their treatment offerings as their aesthetic practice expands, and offers something for every patient who walks into their clinics. The Elos Plus is a multi-platform system that integrates a number of different treatments in one compact system. It combines numerous cutting edge treatments utilizing Syneron's eos technology, which combines optical energy and bipolar radiofrequency (RF). "The versatility of elos plus has been great for my practice. The combined energies allow us to safely provide exceptionally effective treatments for all skin types with a high level of comfort and without downtime," said Plastic Surgeon Craig Mezrow in Bala Cynwyd, PA. Due to its multiple handpieces, elos plus is considered a true workhorse for aesthetic practices. According to Dr. Mezrow, "With this platform, we can perform laser hair removal, as well as IPL hair removal, which is an ideal option in states like New Jersey where only an MD can use a laser. It also includes skin rejuvenation to reduce redness and brown spots and improve sun-damaged skin. Due to the effcient design of the handpieces, elos plus can be used on the face as well as on the body, such as the hands, chest, and arms on the same day on the same patient." Larger spot sizes add increased versatility and faster treatments. "The larger spot size allows you to be more effcient with your time, especially when using it for the body. This allows me to treat more patients per day," said Dr. Mezrow. He also appreciates having the new smaller spot size to target diffcult to treat facial areas, such as the lower lids and around the nose. "Within a few treatments, you can signifcantly reduce sun damaged skin in terms of telangiectasias and dyschromias," he said. elos plus also includes an applicator to treat leg veins. The AC applicator is useful for teenage and adult acne because it kills the bacteria that causes acne. "Often the same patients who come in for their acne will also have sun damage, such as redness and infammation from acne, so we can use the skin rejuvenation handpiece to reduce the redness in the skin. We also use it in conjunction with prescription topicals," said Dr. Mezrow. For patients who also present with acne scars, elos plus offers another treatment parameter with its Sublative ™ applicator. According to Dr. Mezrow, "Once we get active acne under control, we can use Sublative to reduce pore size and improve acne scars with minimal downtime. I perform a series of at least three treatments with Sublative, depending on how severe the acne scarring is. I also use it to reduce the sebaceous glands to make skin less prone to acne lesions. These treatments are great for patients who come in with acne and acne scars, and we can treat all skin types from I-VI." For patients seeking skin resurfacing, acne scar and wrinkle reduction, Sublative rejuvenation offers a minimal downtime alternative to fractional CO2 that further expands a practice's treatment offering. Dr. Mezrow offers patients the option of undergoing a single deeper fractional resurfacing with Syneron's CO2RE if they can accept the downtime required, or a series of Sublative treatments for patients that can only afford a minimal to no downtime procedure. Sublime ™ , which uses RF energy to tighten the skin, has proven to be especially effective for the jawline, jowls, and cheeks.
