Skin Rejuvenation and Collagen Stimulation?
Ellipse IPL Skin Rejuvenation Therapy Treats:
- Pigmentation such as freckles, sun spots, age spots
- Redness / High Colouring / Rosacea Symptoms
- Collagen Stimulation for skin texture and enlarged pores
What is it?
Ellipse Skin Rejuvenation is a non-invasive treatment to erase skin damage with disruption of the skin surface. The light is absorbed by the melanin and the superficial blood vessels in the skin and the ensuing heat reaction destroys the melanin in the keratinocytes, coagulates blood vessels and stimulates collagen production.
Who is it for?
This treatment is ideal for clients who find that they have skin discolouration, sun damage, age spots, mottled pigmentation, dull complexions, diffused redness or high colour and the symptoms of rosacea and enlarged pores.
One of the major advantages of the Skin Rejuvenation treatment is that you get great results with no down time or long recovery times.
How does it work?
The Skin Rejuvenation treatment stimulates the collagen production in the dermis, which in turn produces an anti-aging effect on the treated area. Clients will notice their skin looks smoother, younger and fresher. Fine lines will appear reduced what’s more is that you make-up will go on much more evenly.
The most commonly treated area is the face; however Skin Rejuvenation is also successfully carried out on the chest, shoulders, arms and hands. These areas are regularly exposed to the exposed to sun through day to day activities, hence damage may occur.
How does the treatment feel?
You will experience a snapping warm sensation during the treatment, but once the treatment is completed the sensation stops.
What happens next?
A mild erythema/redness in common immediately after the treatment and quickly subsides.
When treating areas of pigmentation it is normal for you to experience darkening of pigment in the treated area in the next few days following the treatment.
Is there any special after care?
Apart from wearing a SPF of at least 30 there is no after care treatment. We do however recommend that you avoid using sunbeds and sun bathing for the next 30 days.
For 24-48 hours after treatment you should:
- not use any perfume, perfumed products or make up – unless it is 100% mineral make up
- avoid any form of heat (sauna, steam room, hot bath), swimming and gym
- not touch, pinch and scratch treated areas
Results can be noticed after just one treatment; however, for optimum results clients should have three treatments at four week intervals.
Are there any possible sides effects?
As a possible sides effect on the treated areas we may notice mild redness few hours to few days after the treatment – you can apply Aloe Vera gel to sooth the skin. Very rare we can notice small blisters, for which a 1% hydrocortisone cream can be applied.
Is it safe and effective?
