Effective Acne Treatment
Effective Acne Treatment is available using our advanced technologies – so you can improve your skin, or help a loved teenager facing the embarrassment of repeated outbreaks.
Acne starts with an overproduction of sebum, which can block pores, trapping the oil.
Skin bacteria (P. acnes) that feed on and break down sebum also become trapped, and the mixture of hair protein, sebum, and fatty acids produced by the bacteria irritate the walls of the hair follicle causing inflammation.
How does Ellipse treatment work? (Download full factsheet here)
Ellipse treatment reduces the blood supply to the sebaceous gland, slowing down production of sebum. To do this, short, safe bursts of intense pulsed light (called I2PL technology by Ellipse, but often referred to as a laser) are directed at the skin. The system filters the light to ensure the wavelengths used are absorbed by haemoglobin in the fine blood vessels that supply the sebaceous glands.
