Ellipse offers fast, safe and practically painless permanent hair reduction. Ellipse treatment is gentle and practically painless. The process uses light, which is absorbed by the pigment in the individual hairs. The pigment converts the light to heat, a process, which disables the ability of the hair follicle to continue growing. It does not hurt. The most discomfort experienced is a tingling sensation, which soon passes. The Ellipse system is developed and produced in Denmark.
The time taken depends on the size of the area being treated. A minor facial treatment, e.g. removal of upper lip hair, can be completed in about 15 minutes while an entire back or both legs can take one to two hours.
Ellipse treatment only works on hair in the growth phases. This means that a course of approx six to eight sessions at intervals of a four to eight weeks are required for optimal results.
To get the most out of the Ellipse treatment, other hair removal methods should be avoided apart from shaving which can be done in between sessions. Tanning before and during the entire treatment course should also be avoided.
There are virtually no side effects but the treated area is sensitive to sun and should be protected with a good sun block, at least factor 30, for the first few weeks following completed treatment.
In addition to Permanent Hair Reduction, the Ellipse system also performs, Facial Thread Vein Removal, Skin Rejuvenation (removal of sun damaged and pigmentation), visit our Ellipse Rejuvenation page to view these treatments.
