For many men and women hair removal can become a very time consuming and laborious task, but this needn’t be the case any longer. Ellipse I2PL have created an Intense Pulse Light Therapy based treatment that drastically reduces and removes unwanted hair.
The visible light source used in this procedure is attracted to the melanin, which is found in hair. Because there is more melanin found in darker hair the darker the hair is, the more effective the treatment. During the treatment an optical coupling gel is applied to the skin to aid the treatment. The applicator is then pressed onto the skin and the light energy is absorbed into the hair causing a heat reaction to destroy the follicle. This intense heat action breaks down the hair follicle, reducing the opportunity for any re-growth and also changing the entire structure of the follicle itself; overtime altering the density and appearance of the hair until it becomes unnoticeable.
Prior to the treatment the area is shaved and then a thin layer of protective gel is applied to aid the treatment to maximize absorption, this is then followed by the Ellipse I2PL applicator being run over the area and the light pulse being filtered through to the hair follicle. The unique square head technology used in Ellipse treatments offer precision and accuracy that ensures that any risk of side effects is minimal. Any potentially harmful wave lengths are removed via the Unique Dual Filtering system, meaning that the light used is completely safe and visible.
