Skin Rejuvenation

Most people would like to keep a young and fresh look forever. This is not easy, as our skin ages due to excessive sun exposure and due to decreased production of collagen. Skin Rejuvenation treatment with Ellipse system will help you keep a younger and fresher-looking face. The safe, visible light emitted from a flash lamp makes your face look smoother by removing age spots and diffuse redness and by improving your skin texture. Uneven pigmentation will also be reduced. Many women report that it becomes easier to apply makeup.

Facial treatments are most popular, but all body sites can be treated.


How does Ellipse treatment work?
The Ellipse flash lamp produces wavelength-filtered light which is then applied to the skin. Age spots contain higher than normal amounts of a substance called melanin. Diffuse redness is caused by an increased number of tiny blood vessels containing hemoglobin. When cells containing a lot of melanin or hemoglobin are exposed to wavelength-specific light, they heat up disintegrate.
Can I be treated?
As treatment is based on light absorption in melanin and in hemoglobin, treatments are most efficient in patients with light skin. The Ellipse system is pre-programmed for different skin colours and can adjust match your requirements.

aHow long does Ellipse treatment take?
The glass prism of the Ellipse is 1 cm by 5 cm enabling treatment of a large area in one flash. A full-face treatment takes less than 20 minutes.
Expect a total of 1 - 3 treatments.

Does it hurt?
No anaesthetics are required. The sensation is similar to the feeling one has during an evening after a day on the beach. The lighter the skin colour, the lesser the pain.

Do I need to take special precautions before and after treatment?
It is important to avoid tanning before the Ellipse procedure. Otherwise the light will be absorbed by melanin in the skin, making the treatment more uncomfortable and less effective.
Generally no post-treatment is necessary but people with sensitive skin may benefit from applying an ice pack to the face immediately after treatment or some cream prescribed by the doctor. The use a sunscreen is recommended for a few weeks following the treatment.

What can I expect?
You may notice that the skin looks a little "dirty" for a few days following the treatment. After that you will find that your skin looks smoother and fresher.
