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Shaving, waxing, tweezing and hair removal creams have been replaced by hair removal in a flash.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.
Can all hairs be treated?
As the treatment relies on the 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 colour and skin colour, making the treatment easier. The Ellipse has pre-programmed settings
for different hair and skin colours to adjust the energy output to each skin's needs.
How many Ellipse IPL 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 and are destroyed by the heat. Resting hair follicles need to enter the
growth phase before they can be effectively destroyed by the Ellipse treatment. This is why it is necessary to repeat treatments 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 6-8 treatments are needed, and the intervals between treatments are typically 1-3 months.
