Laser Skin Care with Ellipse Laser
Laser treatment has been used for many years in the medical and aesthetic world for the treatment of a variety of conditions. It is recognised as a safe and effective method to target problems such as Acne, sun damaged skin (Photorejuvenation), Vascular Lesions and Rosacea. For laser treatment to work, specific light settings have to be used for each specific condition. In medical terms, this means that the light has to be adjusted not only to the depth of skin it is meant to penetrate, but also to the so called absorption spectrum of the cause for the skin condition that needs to be treated.
For example pigments such as melanin and haemoglobin, which are the main causes of visible skin conditions, have the ability to absorb light, but not at the same wave length, which means they need to be targeted at different wave lengths. For dark marks on the skin and Vascular Lesions, mainly melanin needs to be targeted, for Rosacea and Acne it is mainly haemoglobin, and for Photorejuvenation both melanin and haemoglobin can be targeted. In recent years, vast advances have been made in the development of new laser technologies, and one of the most innovative systems available these days is the Ellipse Laser Treatment. Like all laser treatments, Ellipse Laser uses light that penetrates certain layers of the skin in order to perform the desired function. However, where ordinary lasers use one specific wavelength of light, Ellipse Laser Treatment uses a distinct form of Intense Pulsed Light, which delivers an entire waveband of light. This means that where standard laser treatment can penetrate the skin down to one specific layer, depending on the wavelength of light that is used, the Intense Pulse Light of Ellipse Laser Treatment can reach a variety of skin layers at the same time. This creates the effect of using numerous lasers at the same time, which means that treatment can be more efficient, faster, and effective.
