Laser Hair Removal

Treatment and procedure

The laser hair removal machine by Ellipse Selective Waveband Technology is nowadays commonly referred to as a hair removal laser although strictly speaking it is not a laser. Owing to Ellipse’s square pulse technology and dual mode filtering hair removal by Ellipse SWT systems is practically pain-free in contrast to many true laser treatments.

To achieve long lasting or permanent hair removal, it is necessary to destroy the hair follicle from which individual hairs grow. Controlled pulses of light penetrate the epidermis and are absorbed by melanin in the hair contained in the follicle.

Melanin converts the light energy into heat. This heat is transferred to the hair follicle, which is destroyed, making it unable to produce a new hair. Hair in the resting (telogen stage) are treated later. The treatment is only effective on growing hairs as these are still attached to the follicle. This technique is called “Selective Photothermolysis”.
