Elos Polaris Fotolift
Elos Polaris is a laser treatment for skin tightening and wrinkle reduction - facial and neck non-ablative rejuvenation.
Non-ablative means not shedding any skin so unlike laser resurfacing you can have treatment with Polaris and be back at work the same day. Polaris is a unique combination of a 900nm Diode laser and bipolar radiofrequency (Elos). This requires overall lower energy levels for superior results with maximum safety and comfort.
Polaris has its main benefits in skin tightening for sagging skin and wrinkle reduction. The unique matrix heating of the Polaris produces results at both the epidermal and deep dermal levels. The intersection of RF current and diode fluence- the Matrix – creates a controlled, focused energy for treating wrinkles and tightening the skin. The power of the RF – which does not rely on a chromophore (melanin or oxyhaemoglobin) for absorption – means that energy is sent precisely and effectively to the treatment zone. Light (laser energy) creates higher temperatures in the epidermis while the combination of light and RF penetrate into the deep dermis. The combination of controllable energies treating at multiple levels makes it possible to treat fine wrinkles at the surface, while penetrating into the dermis to treat deeper wrinkles – all in the same procedure.
Dr Patrick Bitter – the pioneer in Fotofacial work with IPL has labelled the Elos Polaris treatment the Fotolift. Generally three to five treatments are required for maximum effect. Polaris creates skin tightening and wrinkle reduction through stimulation and production of your own bodies collagen. There are immediate improvements but the full benefits of treatment can take 6-12 months to become apparent. The new collagen that is formed has effective long term results – unlike injected collagen – but of course is subject to natural deterioration with age. Top up treatments may be necessary over time. Elos Polaris treatments are mainly for neck and face.
