The Ellipse SWT™/Laser Skin Rejuvenation systems offers clinically proven treatment of both vascular and pigmented sun-damaged skin.
The Ellipse SWT™/Laser Skin Rejuvenation system
Clinically proven, safe and effective this treatment helps diffuse age spots, telangiectasia, diffuse redness, rosacea, poikiloderma of civatte and uneven pigmentation on the face and body.
Benign pigmented lesions may be genetic in origin or may be caused by physical damage such as sunburn or injury as well as the natural effect of ageing. The lesions can vary in size and colour. It is always important to ensure that the lesion is not malignant before removing it.
How does Ellipse Skin Rejuvenation work?
The Ellipse treatment works by directing well-controlled pulses of light into the upper skin layer. The light is absorbed by two of the body’s own natural chemicals – melanin in the pigmented areas and haemoglobin in the red blood cells.
Both these pigments convert the light energy into heat. This heat is used to destroy the parts of the cells in which the melanin is stored, and to damage the walls of the vessels supplying blood to the areas where vascular damage is seen. This technique is called “Selective Photothermolysis.
The visible light produced by the Ellipse system is carefully controlled to produce the correct pulse length and a right amount of energy to destroy the targets without damaging surrounding tissue, providing skin rejuvenation.
