What is elōs technology?
Elos technology is a unique combination of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) and RF (Radio Frequency) that uses gentle pulses of two targeted energies to penetrate deeper below the skin dermis than laser and IPL, more effectively targeting the hair follicle. mē uses a low overall energy output, subsequently providing treatment times significantly faster than home IPL along with higher levels of safety and comfort even on darker skin tones (suitable for skin tones 1-6).

Who can use mē?
mē is suitable for use by women and men with Fitzparick skin tones 1-6 on all body parts below the neck. mē is also safe for women with Fitzpatrick skin tones 1-4 to use to remove facial hair below the cheekbones. If you have naturally blonde, red or grey hair, we recommend that mē is used with the epilator attachment to achieve maximum efficacy.
When to use mē
Following multiple clinical tests a precise treatment schedule has been formulated to provide the most effective results. Perform the first treatments every two weeks for the first six weeks. Following the initial course of treatments, a simple top up treatment can be completed as hair appears. Although it varies by individual, you can expect up to 3 months between treatments. As you progress, you will notice longer and longer intervals between top-up treatments and the hairs will be fewer and fewer. A small number of hairs will still appear after the initial course of treatment, success is dependent the growth phase of the hair follicles at the time of treatment.
How does mē work?
A pulse of elōs (RF + IPL) is emitted for a fraction of a second. The IPL energy is converted to thermal energy, heating up the hair shaft and the hair follicle. The RF energy is attracted to the pre-heated follicle, heating it further and treating it, permanently disabling the follicle and preventing hair re-growth. Effective treatment is dependent on the growth phase of the hair follicles at the time of treatment, but by following the recommended treatment schedule you will be able to benefit from permanent hair reduction.
