Achieve clear, beautiful skin with Elos Blue Light Acne Treatment.


How does acne treatment with Elos work?

Acne occurs when a sebaceous oil gland surrounding a hair follicle becomes clogged with oil and dead skin cells. Bacteria growth in this clogged environment causes infection and acne blemishes.

The combined bi-polar radio frequency and blue light energies of Elos technology penetrate the skin to precisely target and destroy active acne-casing bacteria, while also slowing excessive sebaceous oil production. Treatment helps in reducing active acne and speeds up healing time of existing acne.

Does it hurt?

Acne treatment with Elos is very comfortable and requires no topical anesthetics or other skin preparation. Cooling of the skin surface helps ensure additional safety during treatment. This is a no-downtime procedure. Many patients return to normal activities immediately after treatment.

Is acne treatment with Elos right for me?

Elos is an effective treatment for all skin types.

When can I expect to see results?

The number of treatments depends on the severity of acne. Typically 8 treatments are needed 1 – 2 weeks apart to achieve maximum results.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dear Patients:

Your safety is our number one priority. Please know that we join our community in taking advised precautions to limit the spread of the Coronavirus. For the time being we are planning on continuing practice as usual, with some additional precautions.

We have always routinely wiped down our office and patient exam chairs with medical-grade sanitizing wipes. We will expand this to include door knobs, toilet and faucet handles and will have hand-sanitizer available to you at check-in.

No staff will be allowed to come to work with a cough or fever, or if they have had contact with anyone with confirmed Coronavirus. We kindly ask for the same considerations from you. If you have any flu-like symptoms or have recently traveled, please call the office to reschedule your appointment.

We appreciate your flexibility as we will be limiting routine follow-up appointments over the next few weeks and ask patients to not bring friends and family members to their appointments to avoid the amount of patients we have in the office at one time. If you have any questions, comments or concerns please call and let us know.

Sincerely, Daniel Shapiro MD, FACS
