Ellipse I²PL technology:

Unlike laser, the light generated from Intense Pulsed Light Systems is broad waveband. The waveband of light emitted from the Ellipse System is chosen so that it both has the correct penetration depth and the optimal absorption by the target chromophore, with minimal absorption by the competing chromophores. The short flashes of light are timed to heat up the target to the correct temperature without damaging surrounding tissues.

All Ellipse I²PL feature state-of-the-art technologies such as Square Pulse Technology, and the patent pending Dual Mode Filtering.

Hair Removal:

Put an end to slow, messy and painful methods of hair removal

Shaving, waxing, tweezing, depilation and hair removal creams have been replaced by hair removal in a flash. Ellipse uses short bursts of safe, visible light emitted from a flash-lamp to remove unwanted hair from all body parts, safely and effectively.
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 unable to produce a new hair.
Because water in the skin is not targeted, I²PL hair removal treatment with Ellipse uses less energy, and gives better clearance than with other Intense Pulsed Light systems.

Clinically proven, safe and effective

How does Ellipse treatment work?

To achieve long lasting or permanent hair removal, it is necessary to destroy the hair follicle from which individual hairs grow. Controlled pulses of light penetrate the epidermis and are absorbed by 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 a new hair. Hair in the resting (telogen stage) are treated later. Treatment is only effective on growing hairs as these are still attached to the follicle.

This technique is called “Selective Photothermolysis”.
