Ellipse IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) systems are used to treat a wide range of skin conditions safely and highly effectively. We use the latest generation Ellipse IPL system for targeted, customised treatments with optimal results.
The Ellipse IPL is one of the most sophisticated systems available and is highly effective in photorejuvenation, hair removal, treatment of acne and vascular lesions.
Our skin changes with age. It becomes thinner and loses its smoothness, and unwanted pigmentation and small vessels can appear. Over time, sun exposure on our face, hands, arms and chest can accelerate the signs of aging.
Fortunately, you can rejuvenate your skin and maintain a younger and fresher look with the Ellipse IPL treatment.
The Ellipse IPL treatment rejuvenates sun-damaged skin resulting in clear and bright skin by delivering short bursts of light that directly target the blood vessels or melanin within your skin. Potentially harmful wavelengths are removed using patented Dual Mode Filtering. The remaining wavelengths are absorbed by the hemoglobin in targeted blood vessels and melanin in freckles, sun spots or other pigmented lesions.
What to expect:
You may notice a slight darkening of some pigmented spots for a few days following treatment which will slough off after about 5 days leaving you with clearer, smoother and fresher skin. Number of sessions required depends on the extent of sun-damage / pigmentation.
The system operates by delivering pulses of energy that directly target vessels within the skin. Only vessels that require treatment are impacted, while the surrounding vessels are not affected.
What to expect: Smaller vessels can disappear immediately after treatment; larger ones fade away more gradually over the next few weeks. Number of sessions required depends on the extent of the vascular lesions.
The system reduces unwanted hair by delivering short, safe bursts of Ellipse IPL directed at the target site. The emitted light is absorbed by pigment (melanin) in your hair. Melanin converts the light into heat, which travels down the hair towards the root and heats the hair matrix, preventing future hair growth.
Acne occurs when sebaceous glands overproduce an oil substance called sebum. When extra sebum gets trapped in hair follicles, the skin can become irritated-leading to the appearance of pimples. When left untreated, some types of acne can cause permanent scarring.
Ellipse IPL treats acne by reducing the blood supply to the sebaceous gland to slow down the production of sebum. The system delivers short, safe bursts of Ellipse IPL directed at the skin. Using patented Dual Mode Filtering technology, the system filters the light to ensure that only the wavelengths necessary for the treatment are used. As a result, only the blood vessels that supply the sebaceous gland are impacted, while the surrounding vessels are not affected.
