Hair removal

Shaving, plucking, waxing and needle epilation all have a drawback; they are temporary. llipse uses short, safe bursts of light emitted from a flash-lamp to remove unwanted hair from all body sites in minutes.

How does Ellipse hair removal treatment work?

To achieve long lasting or permanent hair reduction, it is necessary to destroy the hair follicle from which individual hairs grow. Well controlled pulses of light penetrate the upper skin layer and are absorbed by one of the body's own natural chemicals, melanin, in the hair contained in the follicle. Melanin converts the light energy into heat. This heat is transferred to the hair follicle, which is destroyed, making it unable to produce new hair.

How many Ellipse treatments do I need?

Hair growth is cyclical, as hair follicles go through resting and growing phases. Only follicles during the growth phase contain hair and are destroyed by heat. Resting hair follicles need to enter the growth phase before they can be effectively destroyed by the Ellipse treatment. The glass prism within the Ellipse treatment lamp allows for a large number of hairs to be targeted in one flash of light. That's why it is necessary to repeat the treatment at intervals until all hair follicles have been through the growth phase. We recommend a course of six treatments.
