The permanent removal of unwanted hair.
Clinically proven, safe and effective
The Ellipse IPL (Intense pulse light) system is used for photo-rejuvenation and to effectively treat unwanted hair, vascular and pigmented conditions. The Ellipse IPL is medical grade and thus only available within medical rooms. Treatments are performed by our trained nurses, ensuring you receive a safe and effective treatment.
Our Ellipse IPL machine uses the latest technology to target the pigment in the hair follicle, destroying it without causing damage to the surrounding skin. Excellent hair clearance is obtained after only 8-10 treatments, spaced at 5-8 weeks apart. Clinical long term studies prove that 77% of hair is still absent after 10 years. You should have this treatment when your skin is at its purest colour, with no fake or real tan. This treatment is perfect to do through winter.
Photo Rejuvenation and Vascular Capillary Treatment
Remove age spots, telangiectasia, diffuse redness, Rosacea and uneven pigmentation on the face and body.
Age spots contain a substance called melanin and diffuse redness and blood vessels contain haemoglobin. The pulse light used in IPL is carefully filtered in 2 ways to ensure that light with the correct wavelength is allowed to reach your skin. When cells containing high amounts of melanin or haemoglobin are targeted with the right type of light, they heat up and are destroyed within a few thousandths of one second.
Most people require 1-3 treatments, usually 5-6 weeks apart.
