For use on the body and face, mē is intuitive, easy to use and offers fast treatment times. A full leg in 10 minutes and the whole body in approximately half an hour. The technology behind mē is endorsed by professionals worldwide, with over 3 million salon treatments performed every year. HoMedics brings this revolutionary technology to the comfort of your own home.
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 1-5).Why choose mē?Effective – Up to 89% hair reduction after 4 treatments*Fast - Full body treatment in approximately half an hour, full leg in 10 minutesEasy to use - mē is easy to set up and operate in the privacy of your own home, using an intuitive gliding motion similar to shaving or epilating instead of a slow ‘stop and stamp’ action. There is no need for any preparation gels.When to use mēFollowing 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.

Simply, how does the mē my elōs hair-removal system work?

When can I expect to see results?

I used mē my elōs last week: Why do I see hair?
