What is Ellipse Permanent Hair Reduction?

Ellipse is the latest technology in advanced permanent hair reduction. The treatment works by emitting variable beams of visible intense pulsed light (IPL) onto the skin. This light is absorbed by the melanin in the hair and turns into heat energy. The follicle is heated to a temperature which alters the cells’ structure and providing the hair is in the Anagen growing phase, stops the hair regeneration. As the hair cycle varies on different parts of the body, and due to hormonal changes, the number of treatments required can vary from one client another.

The Consultation

Face to Face Consultation

The purpose of the consultation is to understand the clients concerns which has led to their consideration for treatment. We then complete the IPL consultation form while assessing the clients skin type and checking for any contra-indications. We then discuss and document the areas for treatment on the consultation form.

The next stage is to advise the client about the difference between Lasers and Light Based Therapy (IPL). We explain how the light interacts with the hair to produce permanent hair reduction and why their hair can only be successfully treated in the Anagen growth phase. It is also necessary for us to indicate to the client why different areas of the body take longer to treat than others. This is normally due to hormonal infulences.

Ensuring the client has realistic expectations also forms part of the consultation and we like to advise the client of any possible adverse reactions or side effects. Taking time to explain the Pre and Post care procedures is extremely important and discussing the significance of our prior patch testing procedure is also covered. If at this stage, the client has no further questions, we summarise and sign off their consultation form.

Now we are in a position to carry out a patch test and document all the machine settings. Should there be no adverse reaction to the patch test, we would then book the client in for their first session of permanent hair reduction.

Pre and Post Treatment Care Advice

Pre Treatment Advice

  • Do not expose skin to UV (sun exposure or the use of tanning beds) or self tan for at least 4 weeks before and/or between IPL treatments,
  • Do not depilate with waxing, plucking or threading (shaving or depilatory creams are acceptable) before and/or between IPL treatments,

  • avoid rough handling of the area treated,
  • leave any skin responses alone, these are temporary and will subside,

  • avoid rough sports for 24 – 48 hrs,

Frequently Asked Questions

A slight warm tingling sensation best describes the feeling experienced during an Ellipse treatment. This is minimised by a special cooling gel that is applied just before the treatment starts. Ellipse is infinitely more comfortable than most conventional methods like waxing, laser and electrolysis.

Unwanted hair can be removed from most parts of the body including legs, upper lip & chin, bikini line, under arm, back etc.  The only areas that cannot be treated are immediately around the eyes and over tattoos and some moles.

Some less advanced IPL systems can only be used on a limited amount of skin types but Ellipse has been clinically proven to work on almost all skin types except very dark skin. Dark hair on light skin is the easiest to treat because the colour difference enables the light to be easily absorbed by the melanin in the hair, but Ellipse allows the Practitioner to adjust the settings to suit specific skin and hair combinations. Only white and grey hairs do not respond to any IPL or laser treatments.

Generally on most areas of the body you may need between 6 – 10 treatments however this can vary from client to client.   With regards to the face, hair growth on this area is usually stimulated by hormonal imbalances and other relating factors and we advise usually 10 – 12 treatments may be required to see a reduction in regrowth.  In some cases, for no known reason, some clients may require further treatments and your Practitioner will monitor your treatment programme.

This will vary depending on the area that is being treated.  A full consultation will be given in complete privacy by our qualified practitioner and the cost will be advised at that time.

Ellipse technology has full FDA clearance which is only granted to treatments that are clinically tested and proven to be safe and effective.

The area treat can feel warm after treatment similar to that of sunburn
