The Ellipse Laser Hair Removal Treatment

How does it work?.

The treatment itself works by destroying the hair follicle this is achieved by regulated pulses of light penetrating the epidermis this, in, turn sets off a chain reaction;

Melanin present in the epidermis converts the laser pulses to heat which in turn burns out the hair follicle causing it to fail rendering the folicle useless this means the follicle is unable to produce another hair.


Ellipse laser hair removal achieves significant hair loss results in a shorter time frame than many other well know laser hair removal treatments.

Typically Excellent results will be seen in as little as 4-6 treatments the results are incredibly long lasting with some patients still benefiting from the results ten years on from the initial treatment

Precautions and patch testing; Ellipse SWT® is suitable for skin types for skin type I -VI, those with very light or dark skin may not be suitable for the treatment with this in mind Catherine will carry out a patch test before your treatment.



In order to achieve optimum results you may require several laser hair removal treatments.

Post treatment avoid excessively hot showers, Saunas or Steam Rooms. Do not apply perfumed products or makeup; the exception to this is mineral makeup which can be used directly after treatment. Avoid sunbathing, or solariums as tanned skin will not absorb the laser effectively. For your laser hair treatment to work a hair must be present in the follicle this means that waxing or tweezing must be avoided between sessions.
