Ellipse Light is second generation Intense
Pulsed Light system is also used for :
Facial Thread Veins
it works ~ Aged spots and hyper pigmentation
contains melanin and diffused redness contains
haemoglobin. The light is absorbed by the
melanin in the pigmented area and the heat
reaction caused breaks the excess melanin
in the keratinocytes. A photo toxic reaction
occurs in the melanin vesicles and the excess
melanin turns darker before it comes away
from the skin.
The light is also absorbed by the superficial
blood vessels in the skin. The heat reaction
caused coagulates blood vessels, destroys
protein in the wall of the vessel and
stimulates collagen production.
Skin rejuvenation is the treatment of sun
The treatment can be used for diffuse redness
(high colour) and pigmented lesions such as
hyper pigmentation, solar lentigines (sun
spots) and freckles.
The results ~ pigmentation will become darker
in colour immediately after the treatment.
A few days after the treatment the pigmented
area will develop a light crust (this is a
good sign that the treatment has worked).
After that the skin will look smoother and
fresher. A few more treatment sessions may
be required to keep a smooth and youthful
For best results ~ on average, 1 ~ 3 treatments
at 4 week intervals are needed for the best
results. Top up treatments may be needed in
the future to maintain these results. For
optimum collagen stimulation effect with Skin
Rejuvenation, 6 treatments at 4 week intervals
would be recommended.
it works Ellipse Acne treatment is
aimed specifically at the treatment of superficial
inflammatory acne. The acne treatment works
in two ways: The light targets the porphyrins
produced by the bacteria that cause the acne,
destruction of these porphyrins will produce
free oxygen radicals and a bactericidal effect
is induced to reduce the acne infection. The
light is also absorbed by the haemoglobin
in the superficial blood vessels that supply
the sebaceous glands and destruction of these
will slow down the over production of oil
that lead to acne. The heat reaction produced
will also stimulate collagen production to
increase healing of the acne lesions and may
even soften the appearance of scarring.
Special precautions before and after treatment
The Ellipse acne treatment is a combination
therapy. It is recommended you use adapalene
(Differin or Redap) cream or gel. Sun exposure
should be avoided 30-60 days before and after
The results there may be some general
redness on the face and following the treatment
pigmented areas may appear darker though this
will eventually disappear. Because the bacteria
is difficult to eradicate completely, your
doctor will probably recommend that you continue
using adaplene cream or gel some months after
the treatment has ended. A course of Ellipse
treatments is recommended with 2-3 week intervals.
Facial Thread Veins
it works The light is attracted to
the target chromophore oxy-haemoglobin in
the blood. As the light is absorbed by the
blood in the vessels, a heat reaction is caused
which coagulates the blood and destroys protein
in the wall of the vessel. The vessel then
breaks down and the debris is removed by the
bodys natural waste disposal system
Only clients with skin type 3 can be treated.
It is important that the client avoids sun
exposure 30-60 days prior to treatment. Sun
exposure can increase the risk of pain or
burns from excessive light absorption in the
epidermis. If the client has a sun tan it
may be better to wait until the colour reduces
to achieve the best results.
results on average 2-4 treatments with
4 week intervals are needed for the best results.
Top up treatments may be needed in the future
to maintain these results.
