Over time, skin changes depending on a number of factors, including age, genetics, certain illnesses, and types of medication. Stress, pollution, sun and a lack of hydration can also have long-term negative effects on your skin, which is why it is important to take good care of it. Epiderma now offers photorejuvenation treatments with Elos Plus Technology (SRA) to restore skin’s healthy appearance and even tone.

Photorejuvenation devices have indeed gained popularity due to their effectiveness in fighting the effects of aging on your skin. The Elos Plus technique (SRA), which acts directly on the three layers of the skin (epidermis, dermis and hypodermis), also treats benign pigmentation problems, superficial melasma, as well as smaller vascular issues.

Dr. Alexis Du Cap, Medical Director at Epiderma, explains that “long‑term exposure to the sun’s rays with little or no sun protection is closely linked to the appearance of photoaging of the skin. As a result, skin loses its elasticity and tone, and develops redness and age spots.”

A PAINLESS AND EFFECTIVE TREATMENT


Epiderma clinics have recently been equipped with the SRA handpiece used with the Elos Plus device. “The photorejuvenation treatment is performed with a laser using intense pulsed light (IPL). The principle is similar to laser hair removal,” explains Dr. Du Cap. The light is converted into thermal energy as it reaches the collagen layer beneath the skin’s surface. Results: this treatment, which is always carried out with medical approval at Epiderma, restores the skin’s healthy appearance and radiant complexion.

“Five days after my treatment, I noticed that the dark spots on my face were lighter and my skin was radiant. I’m really impressed with the results, so much so that I’ve decided to treat myself each season to maintain my glowing complexion!”
