Ellipse, the fastest laser hair removal system

Practically pain free IPL laser hair removal with documented long term results, putting an end to slow, messy and painful methods of hair removal.

Ellipse IPL and laser based systems provide the fastest hair removal on the market and are applicable for all skin types. Leading dermatologists and beauty professionals worldwide depend on Ellipse’s IPL and laser systems for safe, effective and proven hair removal system. We are a registered clinic with the governing body.

Excellent hair clearance is obtained after a course of laser treatments.

Owing to Ellipse’s square pulse technology and dual mode filtering hair removal by Ellipse IPL systems is practically pain free in contrast to many laser IPL treatments the treatment also helps with pigmentation to the skin. It uses a light via a hand piece to target the melanin in the hair follicle. This light then converts to heat, it then destroys the hair follicle and leaves it unable to produce a new hair.

The Intense Pulsed Light is attracted to melanin, which is found in hair. For effective hair removal the IPL targets the pigment in the hair. Prior to treatment a gel is applied to the skin to optimise the treatment. An applicator is then pressed onto the skin and the light energy is absorbed into the hair causing a heat reaction to destroy the follicle. The treatment is only successful in the Anagen stage (growing stage) of the hair growth, therefore a course of treatments is required. All skin types can be treated.

Eye protection glasses will be provided for both the technician and the client to wear when receiving and performing treatment. Clients should avoid tanning 1 month ahead of and during the entire treatment scenario to avoid increased pain or burns from excessive light absorption in the epidermis. Immediately after the treatment the skin is particularly sensitive to UV light. A sunscreen of at least 30+ must be used for 30 days after the treatment.

Permanent Hair Reduction can be successfully achieved with the Ellipse Intense Pulsed Light system. After the first treatment the client gets significant reduction in hair density. Also re-grown hairs tend to become much finer and slightly less dark.

Yes. It is completely safe. Ellipse is a 2nd generation Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) system utilising a patented ‘dual mode filtering’ system, which removes all unnecessary and potentially harmful wavelengths. The Ellipse has pre-programmed treatment suggestions for different skin and hair types thus allowing the energy levels to be adjusted for the client’s individual needs.

Ellipse is very different from electrolysis and waxing. In comparison to electrolysis – Electrolysis is a much slower process as the needle has to be inserted into the hair follicle one at a time. Electrolysis can also be painful and can cause scarring.
In comparison to waxing, waxing can also be painful. The hair growth needs to be a certain length before waxing can be repeated. In some cases the after effects can be a disadvantage to the client i.e. ingrown hairs and skin reactions.
Ellipse treats larger areas of hair growth in shorter periods of time. It is less painful, much faster, more convenient and has been shown to reduce in-growing hairs and skin reactions.
