ELLIPSE I2PL FOR VASCULAR LESIONS
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) directs high intensity pulses of light into the skin to treat various skin problems.
IPL systems work in the same way as lasers – light energy is absorbed by certain target cells in the skin. This light energy is then transformed into heat energy, which causes damage to the target cells. Unlike lasers, however, IPL delivers many wavelengths (or colours) in each pulse of light instead of just one wavelength.
WHAT'S SO SPECIAL ABOUT THE ELLIPSE SYSTEM?
Ellipse I2PL Plus uses Selective Waveband Technology, which has extra filters to carefully control the light that reaches the skin. The light penetrates the skin better, contains only the wavelengths needed to get results, and destroys target cells without damaging normal tissue. This translates to more effective treatment, with less side effects and downtime.
