The Ellipse operator guides the light from the flash-lamp to the treatment area. The unique Ellipse I2PL system carefully filters this light in two ways to ensure that only light with the correct characteristics (wavelengths) is allowed to reach your skin.
The light that is allowed through is absorbed by haemoglobin, which is the red pigment in blood. The light from the fl ash-lamp heats up the haemoglobin in the fine blood vessels that supply the sebaceous glands. This causes a minor injury to the sebaceous glands and slows down the overproduction of oil that leads to acne.

Obtain a clearer complexion with The Laser Clinic & Ellipse IPL Acne Clearance Acne occurs when sebum is unable to leave the skin because a hair follicle is blocked. This may result in growth of bacteria below the surface of the skin. Inflammation can occur, and rupture of an inflamed area can lead to scarring.
Ellipse treatment following use of prescription medication has been clinically proven to accelerate the healing process for acne clearance.
The Ellipse treatment works by directing pulses of 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. If you have any questions regarding this treatment or how it works, please feel free to contact the Laser Clinic direct.
A normal hair and sebaceous gland (1) can become partially blocked (2). Acnes bacteria live on the sebum and produce fatty acids. The body responds by blocking the gland’s exit to the skin (3). Sometimes the mixture of hair protein, oil and fatty acids damages the walls of the follicle and causes inflammation (4).
The Ellipse I²PL treatment works by reducing the blood supply to the sebaceous gland, which slows down production of sebum (5) helping acne clearance.
