Ellipse IPL treatment following use of prescription medication has been clinically proven to accelerate the healing process for acne clearance. A course of treatments is required.
The Ellipse treatment works by directing pulses of light into the epidermis. The light is absorbed by the haemoglobin in the blood vessels that feed the sebaceous glands. Haemoglobin converts the light energy into heat, which damages the walls of the vessels supplying blood to the glands. This technique is called “Selective Photothermolysis”.
The visible light produced by the Ellipse I²PL systems is carefully controlled to produce the correct pulse length and wavelengths to reduce the acne without damaging the surrounding tissue. It is approved by the FDA for treatment of inflamatory acne on skin types I – IV.
