Ellipse Hair Removal

Put an end to slow, messy and painful methods of hair removal

Shaving, waxing, tweezing and hair removal creams have been replaced by hair removal in a flash. Ellipse uses short, safe bursts of light emitted from a flash-lamp to remove unwanted hair from all body sites in minutes.

How does Ellipse treatment work?

The Ellipse operator guides the light from the flash-lamp to the treatment area. The unique Ellipse 12PL system carefully filters this light in two ways to ensure that only light with the correct characteristics (wavelengths) is allowed to reach the skin.

Hair contains pigment (melanin) that absorbs the light and converts it into heat. The hair transmits this heat into the hair follicle, which is then destroyed and rendered unable to produce a new hair.

To ensure optimal light transmission to the hair, a thin layer of gel (similar to that used in ultrasound examinations) is applied to your skin before treatment. The operator then moves the hand held applicator over the entire treatment area exactly one applicator width after each flash of light.

Can all hairs be treated?

As the treatment relies on absorption of light in the hair pigment (melanin), the most efficient treatment is seen with dark hair. The lighter the skin, the more pronounced the distinction between hair and skin color, making treatment easier. However, Ellipse has pre-programmed settings for different hair and skin colours so adjust the energy output to your needs.

How long does an Ellipse treatment take?

The glass prism within tile Ellipse applicator that guides the light to the skin is 10mm by 48mm, so several vessels can be targeted in one flash of light. Treatment of the upper lip takes approximately 5 minutes, whereas a back or both legs takes 60-120 minutes.

Does it hurt?

Tolerance of pain is very individual from person to person. No anesthetics are required, and most people describe the sensation similar to that of a rubber band snapping onto the skin.

Do I need to take special precautions before and after treatment?

The light used is completely safe. visible light. Potentially harmful wavelengths are removed by the unique Ellipse Dual Mode Filtering system.

It is important not to remove hair by plucking, tweezing, waxing or use of creams during the entire four weeks before treatment. This ensures that as many hair follicles as possible contain a hair and thus can be destroyed by the light.

Since tanning takes place by accumulation of pigment (melanin) in the skin, it is also important to avoid tanning (sun, solarium or self-tanning cream) before and during the treatment period. Otherwise your tanned skin will absorb more light, which makes treatment less effective.

Generally, no post-treatment care is necessary. But people with very sensitive skin may benefit from using a soothing cream for a few days after treatment. It is also recommended to limit sun exposure and to use suncream (min. SPF 30) for a few weeks following treatment.

How many Ellipse treatments do I need?

Hair growth is cyclical, as hair follicles go through resting and growing phases. Only follicles in the growth phase contain hair are destroyed by the heat. Resting hair follicles need to enter the growth phase before they can be effectively destroyed by the Ellipse treatment. That’s why it is necessary to repeat the treatment at intervals until all hair follicles have been through the growth phase.

The length and timing of the growth cycles are affected by numerous factors such as body site, hair, density, thickness, ethnic origin, hormonal status and age. Clinical studies have confirmed that at least 3-6 treatments are needed, and the intervals between treatments are typically 1-3 months.

How can I be sure Ellipse is safe and effective?

Sun Damaged Skin Treatments

Most people would like to keep a young and fresh look forever

You don’t have to try to cover your thread veins anymore. Ellipse uses short safe bursts of light emitted from a flash-lamp to quickly remove those thin veins (technically called telangiectasias) from your face or legs.

How does Ellipse treatment work?

The flash-lamp in the unique Ellipse I2PL system produces light that is carefully filtered in two ways to ensure that only light with the correct characteristics (wavelengths) is allowed to reach your skin. SUN

The light that is allowed through has been chosen because it is the sort that two natural body substances respond to. Age spots contain a substance called melanin, and blood vessels contain a substance called haemoglobin. When cells containing a lot of melantin or haemoglobin are targeted with the flash lamp, they heat up and are destroyed within a few thousandths of one second. SUN

Which Sun-Damaged Skin can be treated?

As skin rejuvenation is based on light absorption in melanin and hemoglobin  treatments are most efficient in patients with light skin who are not sun-tanned at the time of treatment. The lighter the skin, the more pronounced the contrast between the age spots/blood vessels and the skin, making treatment easier. However, Ellipse has pre-programmed settings for different skin colours that deliver the correct energy output for your complexion.

How long does a Sun-Damaged Skin treatment take?

The glass prism within tile Ellipse applicator that guides the light to the skin is 10mm by 48mm, so several vessels can be targeted in one flash of light. A full-face treatment takes about 20 minutes. You should expect a total of 1-3 treatment before you obtain the desired results.

Does a Sun-Damaged Skin treatment hurt?

Tolerance of pain is very individual from person to person. No anaesthetics are required and many patients describe the treatment as a warming sensation similar to the feeling one has after a day on the beach. The lighter the skin colour the less sensation.

Do I need to take special precautions before and after treatment?

Generally, no post-treatment care is necessary. But people with very sensitive skin may benefit from applying an ice pack to the face immediately after treatment or applying an ointment prescribed by the doctor. It is also recommended to use sunscreen (min. SPF 30) for a few weeks following treatment.

How many Ellipse treatments do I need?

The number, of treatment depends on the body site and the severity of the thread vein. Clinical studies have confirmed that 1-4 treatments usually are needed- and these are timed about one month apart.

Treatment of Thread Veins

Are you constantly checking your makeup or always wearing dark tights?

You don’t have to try to cover your thread veins anymore. Ellipse uses short safe bursts of light emitted from a flash-lamp to quickly remove those thin veins (technically called telangiectasias) from your face or legs.

How does Ellipse treatment work?

A thread vein is a small blood vessel near the surface of the skin. The Ellipse operator guides the visible light from the flash-lamp to the blood vessels needing treatment. The unique Ellipse I2PL system carefully filters the light in two ways to ensure the that only light with the correct characteristics (wavelengths) is allowed to reach your skin.

Blood contains haemoglobin that absorbs the light and converts it into heat. This heat destroys the protein in the wall of the thread vein. As a result the veins will gradually, and safely, disappear after the treatment. To ensure optimal light transmission to the hair, a thin layer of gel (similar to that used in ultrasound examinations) is applied to your skin before treatment.

Which thread veins can be treated?

Thread veins on all parts of your body can be treated. The most common treatments are for superficial veins in the facial, chest or legs areas. As the treatment relies on absorption of light by the haemoglobin in the blood, the most effective results are seen with light skin. The lighter the skin, the more pronounced the distinction between the vessel and the skin, making treatment easier. However, Ellipse has pre-programmed settings for different skin colours that deliver the correct energy output to your complexion.

How long does an Ellipse treatment take?

The glass prism within tile Ellipse applicator that guides the light to the skin is 10mm by 48mm, so several vessels can be targeted in one flash of light. The treatment depends on the area to be covered and the number of distinct vessels to be treated. A single session typically lasts 10-20 minutes.

Does it hurt?

Tolerance of pain is very individual from person to person. No anesthetics are required, and most people describe the sensation similar to that of a rubber band snapping onto the skin, followed by a warming sensation lasting several minutes. You may find it comforting to cool the skin after the treatment.

But people with very sensitive skin may benefit from applying an ice pack to the face immediately after treatment or applying an ointment prescribed by the doctor. It is also recommended to use sunscreen (min. SPF 30) for a few weeks following treatment. After treatment of thread veins on the legs, compression (surgical) stockings should be worn for two weeks.

If larger veins on the leg have already been treated (surgery or scierotherapy), Ellipse treatment should be delayed for at least one month to allow the healing process to be complete first.

Acne Treatment

Acne is caused by the body’s increased production of the hormone androgen, which stimulates the sebaceous glands to produce more oil. The increased production of oil causes the pores to become blocked, so that the oil cannot come up the skin surface. The acne itself is an infection caused by the skin bacteria that feed on and break down this oil.

As the bacteria multiply, waste products and sebacic acid are created, and the sebaceous gland become inflamed – causing what is known as a blackhead, whitehead or a pimple.

But now – with the clinically tested and safe Ellipse treatment – help is at hand.

Ellipse treatment works by reducing the blood supply to the sebaceous gland, which slows down production of the body oil sebum.
