Ellipse laser hair removal treatment offers clinically-proven, safe and effective long-term removal of unwanted hair.
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 SWT and laser systems is carefully controlled to ensure the correct pulse length, wavelengths and right amount of energy to destroy the follicle.
