Laser IPL Treatment
Age Spots & Uneven Pigmentation
Benign pigmented lesions may be genetic in origin or may be caused by physical damage such as sunburn or injury, as well as the natural effect of ageing. The lesions can vary in size and colour. It is always important to ensure that the lesion is not malignant before removing it.
The Ellipse I²PL treatment offers clinically proven treatment of sun-damaged skin, covering both vascular and pigmented aspects.
How does the Ellipse I²PL treatment work ?
The Ellipse I²PL treatment works by directing well-controlled pulses of light into the upper skin layer. The light is absorbed by two of the body's own natural chemicals - melanin in the pigmented areas and haemoglobin in the red blood.
Both these pigments convert the light energy into heat. This heat is used to destroy the parts of the cells in which the melanin is stored, and to damage the walls of the vessels supplying blood to the areas where vascular damage is seen. This technique is called "Selective Photothermolysis”.
The visible light produced by the Ellipse I²PL system is carefully controlled to produce the correct pulse length and right amount of energy to destroy the targets without damaging surrounding tissues.
The Ellipse I²PL photo rejuvenation treatment will additionally treat larger telangiectasias (individually visible vessels).
Photo rejuvenation is a quick and simple treatment that does not interfere with your normal daily routine, repairing
sun-damage found on the face, neck, chest and hands.
