Hair Removal



Practically painfree SWT/ Laser hair removal with documented long term results

Excess hair may be the result of medical conditions, but the pressure to remove it may be cosmetic. Cultural norms and peer group pressure often require the removal of hair in certain regions such as the face, axillae (armpits), legs and bikini line for women and the chest and back for men.

How does the Ellipse SWT laser hair removal treatment work?

To achieve long lasting or permanent hair removal, it is necessary to destroy the hair follicle from which individual hairs grow. Controlled pulses of light penetrate the epidermis and are absorbed by melanin in the hair contained in the follicle.

Hair Removal DiagramMelanin converts the light energy into heat. This heat is transferred to the hair follicle, which is destroyed, making it unable to produce a new hair. Hair in the resting (telogen stage) are treated later. The treatment is only effective on growing hairs as these are still attached to the follicle. This technique is called “Selective Photothermolysis”.

The visible light produced by Ellipse I²PL systems is carefully controlled to ensure the correct pulse length, wavelengths and right amount of energy to destroy the follicle.
