Ellipse IPL Laser Treatments

Body Beauty offers two main treatments using the Ellipse IPL2 System;

  • Hair Removal to remove unwanted hair from any part of the body.
  • Skin Rejuvenation to remove or reduce age spots, open pores, visible blood vessels, diffuse redness and uneven pigmentation while improving skin texture.

 

Hair Removal

Ellipse IPL Hair Reduction offers you a fast, effective and permanent method of hair reduction with proven clinical results available to view in salon. Ellipse Light is a 2nd generation Intense Pulsed Light system utilizing a patented “dual mode filtering system “ to remove all harmful wavelengths and to prevent overheating of water in the skin.

How does it work?

During treatment, the flash of light that comes through the applicator will be attracted to the pigment (colour) in your hair. This will cause a heat reaction in the hair follicles, a process that will permanently disable the hairs ability to grow.

Can all hairs be treated?

Clients with black hairs and pale skin will find the treatment most effective due to the large concentration of melanin (pigment) found in the hair whereas blonde, white, red and grey hairs cannot be treated effectively as there is little or no melanin in the hair, therefore less heat will be produced in the hair follicle.

Does it hurt?

No anesthetic is required and most clients describe it like the snapping of an elastic band on the skin, which only lasts for a short moment. Hair reduction/skin rejuvenation consultation and patch test is required (redeemable with first treatment).

Skin Rejuvenation

ELLIPSE IPL SKIN REJUVENATION is used to treat sun damaged skin. It is also used to diffuse redness (high coloring) and pigmented lesions such as sunspots, age spots, freckles and uneven pigmentation patches on common areas such as the face and backs of the hands.

How does it work?

During the treatment the flash of light that comes through the applicator will be attracted to the excess melanin/pigment in your skin. This will cause a heat reaction that will break down the melanin in the skin cells and cause a phototoxic reaction in the melanin vesicles, the excess melanin will turn darker and will develop into a light crust or “dirty look” which will be shed naturally within 7 to 10 days. After this your skin will look smooth and youthful. When treating to diffuse redness the light is absorbed by the superficial blood vessels in the skin. The heat reaction caused will coagulate the blood vessels and destroy protein in their walls stimulating in turn collagen production.

Does it hurt?

The sensation is described as a heat sensation and a few clients compare it to mild sunburn after the treatment. Slight erythema is seen immediately after and will disappear in an hour or two.
