Questions & Answers
How does the treatment work?
A thin layer of gel is applied to the skin to ensure the maximum amount of light enters the skin. The applicator is pressed against the skin and a carefully controlled pulse of visible light is released and absorbed by the pigment in the hair. The melanin coverts the light into heat that travels down into the hair matrix and destroys the cells, preventing future hair growth.
Can all hairs be treated?
Brown and black hairs can be treated effectively as the light can be absorbed into the melanin (colour) of the hair, unfortunately blonde, red, grey or white hairs do not respond particuarly well to the light treatment.
Can all skin types be treated?
Yes all skin types from 1-6 can be treated using the system though different applicator is used for darker skin types 4-6.
How long does the treatment take?
A large number of hairs can be treated in one flash, an upper lip takes approximately 5 minutes and a half leg takes 30 minutes.
How many treatments do I need?
Every hair has a life cycle, it grows for a period of time, falls out, rests and then starts to grow again. Only the hairs in growing stage are treated, so a course of treatment is required up to 6-8 to effectively treat all the hairs in the growth cycle.
Do I need to take special precautions before and after the treatment?
It is important not to pluck, tweeze, wax or use hair removal cream during the four weeks before the treatment. This ensures that as many hair follicles as possible contain a hair which can be destroyed. It is extremely important to avoid tanning – sun, sunbed and self tanning products before and during the treatment period. It is recommended that you use sunscreen SPF 30 for four weeks following the treatment.
Before treatment can commence a patch test is carried out, this is done 48hrs beforehand to check the skin is suitable without any reaction.
Does the treatment hurt?
The treatment is practically pain-free, similar to that of a rubber band flick on the skin, some clients feel virtually nothing at all apart from a small amount of heat.
How can I be sure it is safe and effective?
Clinical trials documenting the Ellipse machine safety and effectiveness were carried out by leading doctors prior to the release and it has been used daily for over 20 years. You are welcome to view the scientific papers on the Ellipse website at www.ellipse.com
