Owing to Ellipse’s square pulse technology and dual mode filtering hair removal by Ellipse IPL systems is market leading in contrast to many laser IPL treatments the treatment also helps with pigmentation to the skin. It uses a light via a hand piece to target the melanin in the hair follicle. This light then converts to heat, it then destroys the hair follicle and leaves it unable to produce a new hair.
Broad-spectrum light is applied to the surface of the skin, targeting melanin. This light travels through the skin until it strikes the hair shafts or the bulb (root). The bulb is usually where the highest concentration of melanin is located. As the light is absorbed, the bulb and most of the hair shaft are heated, destroying the hair-producing papilla. It is also claimed that heat conversion occurs directly in the darker capillaries that bring blood to the follicle.
At any one time, not all hair follicles are ‘active’, and only active hair follicles can be affected by the treatment. ‘Inactive’ hair follicles can be treated as they become ‘active’ over time. For IPL treatments, an average of 8–10 treatments are required to remove most visible hair. No common treatment protocol exists and it depends on the equipment used and patient skin type. The area to be treated should be clean shaven and free of sunburn. Treatment sessions are usually 4 to 6 weeks apart.
