IPL Sun Damage

Sun damage or also known as Age spots tend to appear as we age leaving our skin unclear in it’s appearance. Ellipse IPL treatments can greatly improve the appearance of sun damage and make your skin look smoother and clearer, and diffuse redness. Your skin texture is also improved and many women report that it becomes easier to apply makeup. Facial treatments are most popular, but all parts of the body can be treated.

Treatment Information

We use short, safe bursts of IPL light directed at the skin. The system filters the light to ensure the wavelengths used are absorbed by haemoglobin in the fine blood vessels and melanin in the age spots. When cells containing a lot of melanin or haemoglobin are treated, the target heats up and is destroyed within a few thousandths of one second.
