Acne is caused by the body's increased production of androgen hormone which stimulates the sebaceous glands to produce more oil. This increased production of oil causes the pores to become blocked, so that the oil cannot come to the skin surface. The acne itself is an infection caused by skin bacteria that feed on and breakdown this oil. The Ellipse IPL treatment filters the light to target the haemoglobin in the fine blood overproduction of oil that leads to acne.

The Ellipse treatment is a combination therapy working in conjunction with an adapalene cream or gel which reduces the inflammation causes by acne.

A course of treatment is recommended. A price for the full course will be given following a consultation.
