The Ellipse Operator guides the light from the flash-lamp to the treatment area. The unique Ellipse 12PL+ system carefully filters this light in two ways to ensure that only light with the correct characteristics (wavelengths) is allowed to reach your skin. Hair contains pigment (melanin) that absorbs the light and converts it into heat.
The hair transmits this heat into the hair follicle, which is then destroyed and rendered unable to produce a new hair. To ensure optimal light transmission to the hair, a thin layer of gel is applied to your skin before treatment.
Here at the Laser Clinic Hull we thrive on the latest proven technology to offer the most up to date and current specialist hair removal and skincare treatments to our clients.

Here at the Laser Clinic we use the amazing Ellipse 12PL + System. Owing to Ellipse’s square pulse technology and dual mode filtering hair removal be Ellipse systems is practically pain free in contrast to many laser treatments.
Ellipse IPL hair removal treatment offers clinically-proven, safe and effective long-term removal of unwanted hair. Excellent hair clearance is obtained after only 4-6 treatments and clinical long term studies have proven that 77% hair is still away after 10 years.
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.
Melanin 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.
