What is IPL?

A consultation with a patch test is required before carrying out the treatment in full. Ellipse IPL offers practically painless hair removal .

Using advanced laser technology, the Ellipse IPL system is the perfect solution for unwanted body hair. People sometimes compare or review laser hair removal machines and IPL systems. Well Ellipse are a very successful and long established manufacturer of multi-purpose ipl laser equipment used for a variety of beauty and skin care treatments. It can treat leg veins, lesions, birth marks and help with skin rejuvenation, anti-aging and wrinkle reduction.

Their range of equipment incorporates the award winning Ellipse Intense Pulsed Light (or IPL) technology. Amazingly these machines offer medically certified permanent hair removal! But that’s not all … Ellipse IPL systems are used in the UK to treat unwanted facial hair and unwanted body hair. Using a patented intense pulse light technology, the systems can “zap” the hair in the follicle, thereby literally attacking the root of the problem. The light energy emitted by the IPL reacts with the melanin in the hair and is converted to thermal energy. This permanently cauterizes the vessels at the base of the follicle, preventing hair growth and achieving permanent hair removal for that hair.

The advertising standards agency prevents Ellipse from declaring permanent hair removal so they say that they achieve permanent hair reduction. It is important to remember that hair grows in cycles and we treat the hairs that are in the anagen stage when the hair is fully attached to the root. When damaged in this phase, the follicle is rendered useless and the inability to produce hair growth cells is set.
