Laser Hair Removal (IPL)

Permanent Hair Reduction with IPL

For many men and women hair removal is a never ending, time consuming and laborious process, but it needn't be such a hardship. Ellipse have created an Intense Pulse Light Therapy based treatment that drastically reduces unwanted hair.

How Laser Hair Removal Works

The treatment works by targeting the melanin (pigment) in the hair with the light from the system, and upon absorption the light is converted into heat. This intense heat action breaks down the hair follicle, reducing the opportunity for any re-growth and also changing the entire structure of the follicle itself; overtime altering the density and appearance of the hair until it becomes unnoticeable.

Number of Hair Removal Treatments

Hair grows in three different cycles and the Ellipse Permanent Hair Reduction can only successfully treat hair during its growth stage. Therefore it is often necessary to undergo a course of 3-6 treatments ensuring that you leave at least 6-8 weeks between each session initially, and then only repeat as and when the hair returns.



Skin Rejuvenation

About Sun Damaged Skin

Everybody loves the sunshine! It’s good for the soul and the immediate effects it has on the skin such as a tan and healthy glow are much desired. However, in the long term, sun exposure decreases the production of collagen, which in turn causes damage to the skin making it feel wrinkled and coarse and looking red and tired.

Skin Rejuvenation using Safe Light Technology (IPL)

Our Skin Rejuvenation treatment rejuvenates the skin using industry renowned light based technology, without the need for injections used in similar procedures. All parts of the skin and body can be treated using the safe, visible light in Ellipse’s technology, leaving you looking younger and fresher with the skin feeling smoother by removing age spots, sun damage and diffused redness. Uneven pigmentation is also reduced.

Age spots contain a substance called melanin, and diffuse redness contains a substance called haemoglobin. When cells containing lots of these substances are targetted with the IPL light, they disappear almost immediately.



Facial Thread Veins

A large proportion of the population suffer from disorders of blood vessels. These range in size from small telangiectasias (small thread veins, spider naevi) to larger Port Wine Stains or birth marks. Most people choose to cover these up with make-up. These skin lesions can cause significant psychological trauma. The Ellipse IPL treatment offers an effective and clinically proven therapy to remove these lesions.






Acne Clearance by Laser (IPL)

Treating Acne With Pulsed Laser Technology

Our acne treatment gets straight to the root of the problem. This unique treatment uses specifically selected wavelengths and optimised pulse duration and shape. The light is absorbed by haemoglobin, the red pigment in the blood, which then heats the area producing a minor reaction to the sebaceous glands. This in turn slows down the overall production of oil that leads to acne, thus dramatically reducing the chance of spots and minimising the appearance of pores in general.
