What is IPL?

What is Intense Pulsed Light?

Similar to Laser, Intense Pulsed Light is a broad spectrum of light that is suitable for many treatments including;

The Intense Pulsed Light works as the light is attracted to different objects in the skin e.g. melanin, haemoglobin. The light is absorbed and causes a heat reaction within the structure which damages it and results in destruction of hair follicles, reduction of excess pigmentation, reduction of capillaries & stimulation of collagen production.

What is special about the “Ellipse” system?

The Ellipse is a 2nd generation Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) system.  It has a special patented ‘dual mode filtering’ system, which removes all unnecessary or potentially harmful wavelengths. This means the light will only target specific structures in the skin as necessary for the treatment. 

Because of the advanced technology you will experience

The Ellipse systems are manufactured by Danish Dermatological Development (DDD) in Denmark.  The DDD group also contains Danish Diagnostic Development who are responsible for the development and manufacture of the gamma camera systems used for nuclear medicine.  The company are very medically focused which shows in the results of the treatment.

The first Ellipse system was developed in co-operation with internationally recognized Dermatologists for the treatment of skin diseases and cosmetic disorders.  Each treatment application has been subjected to clinical tests and regulatory approvals.  All clinical data has been published in the ‘Journal of Cutaneous Laser Therapy’ demonstrating the full potential of the system.
