What is Elos?
Elos is an acronym (a word formed by combining the initial letters of a name with many parts) for electro optical synergy. It is electro optical because electrical and light energies are both involved in this procedure; it is synergy because both these energies interact with each other so that their combined effect is greater than their respective individual effects.
Together they stimulate collagen production, which in turn rejuvenates the skin back to its youthfulness. The technology combines actually diode laser energy and radiofrequency energy. The procedure effectively targets the problem area, leaving out the surrounding skin from possible harmful effects.
