IPL Laser Hair Removal and Ellipse Hair Removal in Warlingham Surrey

Offers an alternative to IPL Laser Hair Removal, the technically advanced Ellipse Hair Removal using an Intense Pulsed Light system. Your personal requirements are overseen and performed, in confidence, by our senior IPL specialist and patient co-ordinator.

What is Intense Pulsed Light?

Ellipse hair removal uses short, safe bursts of light emitted from a flash-lamp to treat specific skin conditions. The Ellipse IPL system uses a method called Selective Photothermolysis for the treatment of a wide range of skin conditions including the removal of unwanted hair, the treatment of sun-damaged skin, acne, and vascular skin disorders.

The difference between Laser and Intense Pulsed Light?

Laser hair removal treatments and treatments with Intense Pulsed Light both work in the same way, choosing wavelengths that are absorbed by the target. But while a Laser uses one given wavelength which is one colour, one phase and one direction. This makes it more difficult to control and more difficult to guarantee optimal results. Intense Pulsed Light uses a broad spectrum of wavelengths which is made up of different colours, different phases and different directions. This focuses on the problem at hand and guarantees results for more hair types/colours. Intense Pulsed Light is like using a group of different lasers in one single treatment.

How can I be sure Ellipse IPL hair removal is safe and effective?

Ellipse hair removal has been clinically proven to be safe and effective through years of clinical trials and studies. The settings used for your treatment will be based on the settings recommended by the clinicians who carried out the clinical trials. Ellipse carefully controls the amount of energy and pulses and delivers the desired energy in the optimal waveband for the treatment. These factors explain why millions of treatments have been so successful and to such a high standard.

What are the treatments possibilities?

The Ellipse IPL system treats many of the most common and most annoying skin problems:

  • Hair Removal- Removal of excess hair on any part of the body.
  • Thread Veins- Removal of broken, blood filled capillaries.
  • Pigmented lesions- brown pigment marks, such as freckles, superficial age spots and sun- damaged skin.
  • Acne
IPL Laser Hair Removal
Shaving, waxing, tweezing and hair removal creams have been replaced by hair removal in a flash! The IPL/ Laser hair removal treatment has become a necessity rather than a luxury due to its safety and effectiveness resulting in healthy, smooth skin and outstanding hair reduction. With one session every 4-6 weeks, no more ingrown hairs, reduced shaving and nourished skin- other painful means of hair removal can totally be avoided.

How does IPL (Intense Pulse Light) Ellipse hair removal work?

Light is guided from the flash-lamp to the treatment area in the correct wavelength. The pigment (melanin) in your hair absorbs the light and converts it to heat. This heat then destroys the follicle and renders it unable to produce a new hair. The most efficient treatment is seen with dark hair and lighter skin, but with the Ellipse system a variety of skin and hair types can be treated successfully.

Treatment regime?

1 treatment every 4-8 weeks (an average of 6 sessions is usually required).

What can the client expect as far as results?

With the Ellipse hair removal treatment the results are as follows:
The number of hairs will become reduced in the treatment area.
Hair will become finer in the treatment area.
Hair will become less pigmented in the treatment area.

Does it hurt?

The treatment sensation varies from area to area and from client to client. Most clients describe the sensation as quite moderate almost like the snapping of a rubber band accompanied by a heat sensation, which only lasts for a short moment.

Do I need to take special precautions before and after treatments?

It is important not to remove hair by plucking, tweezing and waxing during the entire four weeks before and during treatments. This ensures that as many hair follicles as possible contain a hair and thus can be destroyed by the light. It is important to avoid tanning before and during the treatment period to avoid the tanned skin from absorbing more light, which makes treatment less effective. Generally, no post-treatment care is necessary, but people with very sensitive skin may benefit from using a soothing aloe vera gel together with a sunscreen (min SPF 30).

Dermaplaning Hair Removal

Dermaplaning is an effective manual, physical exfoliation method where a sterile, one-use scalpel is used at a 45-degree angle over the face to remove the top most layer of skin and up to 3 weeks-worth of dead skin cells in one visit. It sounds scary, but really, it couldn’t be less so.

Although rather new in the UK, Dermaplaning has actually been around for years and is very big in America - particular with makeup artists performing it on celebrities before red carpet events.
