Acne occurs when sebum is unable to leave the skin because a hair follicle is blocked. This may result in a growth of bacteria below the surface of the skin. Inflammation can occur, and rupture of an inflamed area can lead to scarring.
Ellipse IPL/ Laser is safe and effective and clinically proven to accelerate the healing process for acne clearance following use of prescription medication.
How does the Ellipse I²PL treatment work on acne?
The Ellipse acne removal machine treatment works by directing pulses of blue light into the epidermis. The light is absorbed by the haemoglobin in the blood vessels that feed the sebaceous glands.
Haemoglobin converts the light energy into heat, which damages the walls of the vessels supplying blood to the glands. This technique is called “Selective Photothermolysis”.
The visible light produced by the Ellipse I²PL systems is carefully controlled to produce the correct pulse length and wavelengths to reduce the acne without damaging the surrounding tissue.
