Clinically proven, safe and effective
The Ellipse I²PL treatment offers clinically proven treatment of sun-damaged skin, covering both vascular and pigmented aspect
The Ellipse I2PL treatment works by directing well-controlled pulses of light into the upper skin layer. The light is absorbed by two of the body’s own natural chemicals – melanin in the pigmented areas and hemoglobin in the red blood cells.
Both these pigments convert the light energy into heat. This heat is used to destroy the parts of the cells in which the melanin is stored, and to damage the walls of the vessels supplying blood to the areas where vascular damage is seen. This technique is called “Selective Photothermolysis”.
The visible light produced by the Ellipse I2PL system is carefully controlled to produce the correct pulse length and right amount of energy to destroy the targets without damaging surrounding tissue.
The Ellipse I2PL photo rejuvenation treatment will additionally treat larger Telangiectasias (individually visible vessels).
Photo rejuvenation is a quick and simple treatment that does not interfere with your normal daily routine, repairing sun-damage found on the face, neck, chest and hands.
