Hair removal remains one of the world’s most popular aesthetic procedures. Anyone with excessive body hair is most likely a good candidate for laser hair removal.
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. The treatment is only effective on growing hairs as these are still attached to the follicle. This technique is called “Selective Photothermolysis”.
The visible light produced by Ellipse I²PL systems is carefully controlled to ensure the correct pulse length, wavelengths and right amount of energy to destroy the follicle.
Remove age spots, telangiectasia, diffuse redness, Rosacea, poikiloderma of civatte and uneven pigmentation on the face and body.
Clinically proven, safe and effective
Our Photorejuvenation treatment offers clinically proven treatment of sun-damaged skin, covering both vascular and pigmented aspects.
You can remove age spots, thread veins, diffuse redness and uneven pigmentation on the face and body with the Ellipse SWT™/Laser Skin Rejuvenation systems.
Benign pigmented lesions may be genetic in origin or may be caused by physical damage such as sunburn or injury as well as the natural effect of ageing. The lesions can vary in size and colour. It is always important to ensure that the lesion is not malignant before removing it.
How does Ellipse Skin Rejuvenation work?
The Ellipse treatment works by directing well-controlled pulses of light into the upper skin layer. The light is absorbed by two of the body’s own natural chemicals – melanin in the pigmented areas and haemoglobin in the red blood cells.
Both these pigments convert the light energy into heat. This heat is used to destroy the parts of the cells in which the melanin is stored, and to damage the walls of the vessels supplying blood to the areas where vascular damage is seen. This technique is called “Selective Photothermolysis.
The visible light produced by the Ellipse system is carefully controlled to produce the correct pulse length and a right amount of energy to destroy the targets without damaging surrounding tissue, providing skin rejuvenation.
The Ellipse I²PL photo rejuvenation treatment will additionally treat larger telangiectasias (individually visible vessels).
Photo rejuvenation is a quick and simple treatment that does not interfere with your normal daily routine, repairing sun-damage found on the face, neck, chest and hands.
Remove many types of vascular lesions such as telangiectasias, hemangiomas and Port Wine Stains.
A large number of men and women all over the world suffer from disorders of the blood vessels (vascular lesions). These can be of various types, from small telangiectasias (sometimes called spider veins or broken veins) to large Port Wine Stains.
Ellipse SWT™/Laser is Clinically proven, safe and effective
Some lesions are present from birth, while others develop with age, or as the result of environmental damage (such as sun exposure). Regardless of the size of the lesion, they can cause psychological trauma so strong that patients seek professional help to remove them. Historically they have been covered with makeup, while surgery has been limited to the larger vessels on the legs. Sclerotherapy has also been used successfully to treat vascular lesions on the legs.
Ellipse offers a clinically proven and effective treatment to remove many vascular lesions, either on its own or as a follow-up treatment to sclerotherapy.
How does the Ellipse I²PL treatment work?
The Ellipse treatment works by directing well-controlled pulses of light into the upper skin. The light is absorbed by one of the body’s own natural substances – haemoglobin – contained in the red blood cells. Haemoglobin converts the light energy into heat. This heat is transferred to the walls of the blood vessels, which are permanently damaged and removed by the body’s own defense mechanism. The method of converting light to heat and using it to destroy the target without damaging the surrounding tissue is called “Selective Photothermolysis”.

The visible light produced by the Ellipse I²PL system is carefully controlled to produce the correct pulse length and right amount of energy to destroy the vessel. Best results are obtained on patients who have light to medium skin.For More Information on any of these treatments please contact us on 021 4270031 or book a complimentary consultation with our experts on our online booking link.
