Intense Pulse Light (IPL²)
The Ellipse System uses safe, visible light emitted from a flashlamp to remove unwanted
hair from all body sites within minutes.
This Visible light from the flashlamp is guided through a crystal prism to the skin and
the hair. Visible hair containing pigment (melanin) absorbs this light and converts the energy
from the light into heat. The follicle is heated to a point where it is destroyed and rendered
incapable of producing a new hair.
As the treatment relies on absorption of light in the hair pigment the most effective
treatment is seen with dark hair. The lighter the skin, the greater the separation is between
the hair and the skin colour making treatment easier. The unique software of the Ellipse System
has pre-programmed settings for different hair and skin colours that adjust the energy output
