Our acne treatment gets straight to the root of the problem. This unique treatment uses specifically selected wavelengths and optimised pulse duration and shape.
The light is absorbed by haemoglobin, the red pigment in the blood, which then heats the area producing a minor reaction to the sebaceous glands.
This in turn slows down the overall production of oil that leads to acne, thus dramatically reducing the chance of spots and minimising the appearance of pores in general.
See my blog on Myths about Acne!
Acne is caused by the body's increased production of the hormone androgen, which stimulates the sebaceous glands to produce
more oil. The increased production of sebum (oil) cannot come up to the skin surface.
The acne itself is an infection caused by skin bacteria that feed on the break down the oil. As the bacteria multiply, waste products and sebacic acid are created and the sebaceous gland becomes inflamed - causing what is known as a blackhead, a whitehead or a pimple.
But now - with the clinically tested and safe Ellipse treatment - help is at hand!
Does it hurt?
The procedure is non-invasive since the applicator only lightly touches the skin's surface, making it relatively painless.
Tolerance of pain is very individual but it has been described by many as the warm feeling one has after a day on the beach.
