Skin rejuvenation treatment with Ellipse helps you keep a younger and fresher look.
The safe, visible light emitted from the Ellipse pulse handset makes your face smoother by removing age spots and diffuse redness and by improving your skin texture. Uneven pigmentation is also reduced. Facial treatment is the most popular but all parts of the body can be treated.
How does it work?
Age spots contain a lot of melanin and diffuse redness is caused by excess haemoglobin. During the rejuvenation process an intense pulsed light, which is specially filtered to target cells bloated with melanin or haemoglobin, heats up the cells and eliminates them in a few thousandths of a second. This leaves your skin looking fresher and younger.
Will it work for you?
The lighter the skin-tone the more efficiently the process will work, as the contrast between the damaged skin and lighter skin is more pronounced, which makes treatment easier. However the process will work for darker / sun-tanned skin also.
How long does the treatment take?
A large area can be targeted in one flash of light, so a full face treatment takes less then 20 minutes. It will probably take a total of 1-3 treatments before you obtain the desired results.
Does it hurt?
Many people describe the feeling as a warming sensation similar to the feeling one has after a day on the beach. The lighter the skin colour the less discomfort.
