The Ellipse system is used for the treatment of a wide range of skin conditions, including the removal of unwanted hair and the treatment of sun-damaged skin, acne, and vascular and pigmented skin disorders.

This laser uses a bright beam of light enters your skin, certain natural pigments in your body absorb the light. One of these pigments is melanin, which is found in the skin and in hair (white hair, red hair, and very blond hair does not contain enough melanin to absorb light). Another pigment is hemoglobin which is found in blood. The third substance in the skin that
absorbs light is water.

When the pigment absorbs the light it converts it into heat. They only absorb a certain band of wavelengths. This band is called the absorption spectrum. Ellipse uses light that is controlled and the light is carefully filtered within the absorption spectrum to target the pigment.

For hair removal or brown marks on the skin, the target is melanin. For treatment of vascular problems and acne, the target is hemoglobin. In treating sun-damaged skin, both melanin and hemoglobin may be targeted.

What are the treatment possibilities?

The light that is absorbed by melanin and hemoglobin is absorbed within a few millimeters on the surface of the skin. The skin is made up of three main layers, and only hair, blood vessels, and melanin that is located close to the skin surface can be treated. Fortunately, this distance allows the Ellipse system to treat many of the most common and most annoying skin problems:

• Removal of excess hair on any part of the body
• Vascular lesions: thread veins, port wine stains
• Acne
• Pigmented lesions: brown pigment marks, such
as freckles, age spots
• Sun-damaged skin

How many treatments will I need?

Every patient is different. Most people see the best results when they receive a series of treatments. Ask your specialist about the treatment plan that is right for you.
