Laser Treatments

Ellipse IPL for Acne

Help your patients obtain a clearer complexion without the use of antibiotics

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 Selective Waveband Technology and laser systems work by reducing the blood supply to the sebaceous gland, which slows down production of sebum and accelerate the healing process for acne.


Clinically proven, safe and effective


Ellipse Selective Waveband Technology laser treatment following use of prescription medication has been clinically proven to accelerate the healing process for acne.


How does the Ellipse SWT treatment work on acne?


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 Selective Waveband Technology systems is carefully controlled to produce the correct pulse length and wavelengths to reduce the acne without damaging the surrounding tissue.


How acne develops


Acne treatment by Ellipse IPL and lasers

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).
