Who is it for?
We can effectively treat all skin types for a reduction in hair growth as long as the hair colour is darker than the skin and the client is over 18 years of age.
The treatment is perfect for anybody that requires hair reduction on an unwanted area.
What does it do?
The light picks up the colour (melanin) in the bulb/hair and destroys the root of the hair to reduce hair growth in unwanted areas. You can expect to receive a long term 85% reduction in the entire hair growth.
How long does it take?
We usually suggest 3 to 6 treatments for hair removal. Treatments are carried out every 4-6 weeks for the face and 6-8 weeks for the body.
What happens in between treatments?
In between each session you will have a fall out phase; this is usually 1-3 weeks after a session.
The hair sheds away and you are left with a smooth finish. A couple of weeks later the hair begins to re grow, it becomes softer, finer and is reduced by around 20% of the entire growth each time.
How does the treatment feel?
The general feeling is a short, sharp heat for a split second on the skin. The sensation is quite mild.
Is there any after care?
We recommend that you avoid heat treatments including hot baths, saunas, and steam rooms for 24-48 hours. You MUST avoid the sun and sun beds for 30 days before and after treatments.
Factor 30+ must be worn to reduce this risk.Fake tanning products can be used 2 weeks either side of a treatment but must be completely removed before the next session.
How do I start?
Firstly you must book an appointment with the clinic for a consultation; these are usually free of charge. The therapist will go through a few medical questionnaires with you to see if you are eligible for the treatment. Following this, she will explain to you in full detail what the treatment entails and answer any questions for you. A patch test on the area will then be carried out to check for any skin sensitivity to light treatments. This will also give you a chance to experience the sensation of the light on your skin so that you know what to expect when coming in for your first treatment.
The hair must only be shaved during the treatments.
No plucking, waxing, bleaching, threading or immac creams are allowed.
We cannot treat any area which has been exposed to the sun within 30 days of the treatment and cannot treat you if you are going into the sun 30 following the treatment.
SPF 30+ MUST be worn on the area before and after treatments.
What is it?
Ellipse Skin Rejuvenation is a non-invasive treatment to erase skin damage with disruption of the skin surface.
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.
Results can be noticed after just one treatment; however, for optimum results clients should have three treatments at four week intervals.
