The Ellipse operator guides the light from the flash-lamp to the treament area. The Unique I2PL system carefully filters this light in two ways to ensure that only light with the correct characteristics (wavelengths) is allowed to reach your skin. Hair contains pigment (melanin) that absorbs the light and converts it into heat. The hair transmits the heat into the hair follicle, which is then destroyed and rendered unable to produce a new hair.
To ensure optimal light transmission to the hair, a thin layer of gel (similar to that used in ultrasound examinations) is applied to your skin before treatment. The operator then moves the hand-held applicator over the entire treatment area exactly one applicator width after each flash light.
As the treatment relies on absorption of light in the hair pigment, the most efficient treatment is seen with dark hair. The lighter the skin, the more pronounced the distinction between hair and skin colour, making treatment easier. However, Ellipse has pre-programmed settings for different hair and skin colours to adjust the energy output to your needs.
