Ellipse Laser & IPL facial rejuvenation is a non-surgical treatment for the entire face, neck, décolleté and back of the hands.
This procedure uses a pulsed light source that affects the upper layers of the skin without damaging the surrounding tissue. This allows for the effective elimination or reduction of erythema and redness, regulation of sebaceous secretion and elimination of skin blemishes. It also causes a visible improvement of skin with signs of photoaging.
Light that converts light energy into heat is absorbed by age spots, sun spots and freckles. These all contain a substance called melanin; and diffuse redness contains a substance called haemoglobin. The heat caused by the laser resurfacing treatment then destroys the parts of the cells where the melanin is stored; and attacks the walls of the blood vessels that supply blood to the areas where vascular damage is observed.
