FAQ – Ellipse Facial Thread Veins

Click questions to open/close answers.

The Ellipse Light is a second generation Intense Pulsed Light system used for Permanent Hair Reduction, Skin Rejuvenation & Acne, and Facial Thread Veins. Ellipse Light is manufactured by a company called Ellipse A/S in Denmark. The background of Ellipse is that they are the company responsible for the manufacture and development of the Gamma camera used for cancer diagnostic treatment.

The first system developed was the Ellipse Flex system used for hair removal, vascular lesi< removal, photo rejuvenation and pigmented lesion removal. 2001 saw the launch of the Ellipse Light system which was developed for the beauty industry utilizing the same advanced patented technology.

The light is attracted to the target chromophore oxy-heamoglobin in the blood. As the light is absorbed by the blood vessels, a heat reaction is caused which coagulates the blood and destroys protein in the wall of the vessel. The vessel then breaks down and the debris is removed by the body’s natural waste disposal system.

The treatment sensation varies from area to area and from client to client. The sensation that is felt depends upon the amount and size of vessels in the area. It can be described as a hot, sharp sensation and would be considered the strongest discomfort of all the Ellipse treatments. Some clients liken it to mild sunburn after the treatment.

On average 2 – 4 treatments with 4 week intervals are needed for the best results. Top up treatments may be needed in the future to maintain these results.

“I cannot state enough how much of a difference having this treatment has made to me; it really has increased my self-confidence. My skin will never be pure and unblemished, but this form of management (which is relatively quick and easy to go through) has made a significant difference. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to take control over what felt like an uncontrollable part of my life.”
