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 (similar to that used in ultrasound examinations) is applied to your skin before treatment. The therapist then moves the hand held applicator over the entire treatment area exactly one applicator width after each flash of light.
As the treatment relies on absorption of light in the hair pigment (melanin), the most efficient treatment is seen with dark hair. The lighter the skin, the more pronounced the distinction between hair and skin color, making treatment easier. However, Ellipse has pre-programmed settings for different hair and skin colours so adjust the energy output to your needs.
Treatment of the upper lip takes approximately 5 minutes, whereas a back or both legs takes 60 minutes plus.
