Shaving, waxing, tweezing and hair removal creams have been replaced by hair removal in a flash.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.
The Ellipse operator guides the light from the flash-lamp to the treatment area. The unique Ellispse IPL system carefuly fliters this light in two ways to ensure that only light with the correct characteristics (wavelengths) is allowed to reach your 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 rendured unable to produce a new hair.
As the treatment relies on absorption of light in the hair pigment (melanin), the most effectient treatment is seen with dark hair. The lighter the skin, the more pronounced the distinction between hair and skin colour, making treatment easier, However, Ellipse has pre-programmed settings for different hair and skin colour to adjust the energy output to your needs.
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 sensative 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 sunscreen (minimum spf 30) for a few weeks following treatment.
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. Thats 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.
