LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Not all Laser Hair Removal treatments are the same. Many clinics offer IPL (intense pulse light) treatments and still call it Laser Hair Removal. There tend to be the offers that you see on popular daily deals websites.
NEWMED Clinic offers an alternative to IPL laser hair removal, the technically advanced Ellipse hair removal treatment using an Intense pulsed light system. Your personal requirements are overseen and performed, in confidence, by our independent senior IPL specialist.
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
KNOW WHAT YOU’RE GETTING – LASER HAIR REMOVAL VS. IPL
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. 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 treatment 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
