There's nothing in the spell description that says the elemental's Essence needs to remain 3 or below, so as written it should remain bound. The Storyteller may wish to rule otherwise, but if so, should discuss it with the player before the elemental is summoned rather than afterward.
I'll make a note of this to discuss with the Hundred Devils
developer, and to consider more broadly if we get to write our planned book on sorcery.
