Ellipse IPL and laser Treatments

Ellipse’s I2PL and laser based systems are used to treat a wide range of skin conditions, including the removal of unwanted hair, vascular lesions, epidermal pigmented lesions, photo-damage, wrinkle reduction, acne vulgaris, onychomycosis and PDT treatments.

How does the Ellipse photo rejuvenation treatment work?

The Ellipse Selective Waveband Technology treatment works by directing well-controlled pulses of light into the upper skin layer. The light is absorbed by two of the body’s own natural chemicals – melanin in the pigmented areas and haemoglobin in the red blood cells.
Both these pigments convert the light energy into heat. This heat is used to destroy the parts of the cells in which the melanin is stored, and to damage the walls of the vessels supplying blood to the areas where vascular damage is seen. This technique is called “Selective Photothermolysis”.
The visible light produced by the Ellipse SWT system is carefully controlled to produce the correct pulse length and right amount of energy to destroy the targets without damaging surrounding tissue.
The Ellipse SWT photo rejuvenation treatment will additionally treat larger telangiectasias (individually visible vessels).
Photo rejuvenation is a quick and simple treatment that does not interfere with your normal daily routine, repairing sun-damage found on the face, neck, chest and hands.

How does the treatment work?

To achieve long lasting or permanent hair removal, it is necessary to destroy the hair follicle from which individual hairs grow. Controlled pulses of light penetrate the epidermis and are absorbed by melanin in the hair contained in the follicle.

Melanin converts the light energy into heat. This heat is transferred to the hair follicle, which is destroyed, making it unable to produce a new hair. Hair in the resting (telogen stage) are treated later. The treatment is only effective on growing hairs as these are still attached to the follicle. This technique is called “Selective Photothermolysis”.The visible light produced by Ellipse I²PL systems is carefully controlled to ensure the correct pulse length, wavelengths and right amount of energy to destroy the follicle.

Ellipse professional hair removal equipment is suitable for all body areas including arms, underarms, back, chest, bikini line, brazilian as well as legs. This treatment offers painless permanent hair reduction delivering smooth skin for both male and females.
