For many women hair removal is a never ending, time consuming and laborious process, but it needn’t be such a hardship. Ellipse IPL have created an Intense Pulse Light Therapy based treatment that drastically reduces unwanted hair.
The treatment works by targeting the melanin (pigment) in the hair with the light from the system, and upon absorption the light is converted into heat. This intense heat action breaks down the hair follicle, reducing the opportunity for any re-growth and also changing the entire structure of the follicle itself; overtime altering the density and appearance of the hair until it becomes unnoticeable.
Prior to treatment the area is shaved before a thin layer of protective gel (similar to that used in ultrasound) is applied to maximise absorption. Finally the Ellipse IPL is run over the area and a succession of light pulses are filtered into the hair follicle. The unique square head technology used in Ellipse treatments offer precision and accuracy that ensures that any risk of side effects is minimal. Any potentially harmful wavelengths are removed via the Unique Dual Filtering system, meaning that the light used is completely safe and visible.
Hair grows in three different cycles and the Ellipse Permanent Hair Reduction can only successfully treat hair during its growth stage. Therefore it is often necessary to undergo a course of 3-6 treatments ensuring that you leave at least 6-8 weeks between each session initially, and then only repeat as and when the hair returns.
To ensure as many hair follicles are targeted as possible it is also important not to undergo any hair removal for at least four weeks before the appointment or during the course of treatment. The same rule applies to any sun treatments, as a tan will raise the pigment level in the skin and have a severe effect on the treatments success.
Skin type is a fundamental affecting factor in this treatment as due to the high level of pigment in the skin darker skin tones often experience more pain during treatment though generally it has been compared to the sensation of a rubber band pinging on your skin.
With the Ellipse IPL Permanent Hair Reduction treatment there is little post-treatment care required. Although people with sensitive skin may benefit from using a soothing cream for a few days following treatment, Aloe Vera Gel will do this as well as reducing any potential redness or swelling.
Ellipse offers a fantastic investment opportunity guaranteeing permanent hair reduction.
