Skin Tightening and Body Shaping
The ThermaLipoII Radiofrequency Laser (RF) is a non-surgical and non-invasive laser procedure that uses radio waves to create heat which cause the volume reduction of fat cells, contraction of dermal & subdermal tissue and production of collagen fibres.
Radiofrequency is perfect for:
– Body re-contouring and fat reduction
– Cellulite reduction
– Skin tightening

Benign vascular lesions are overgrown enlarged blood vessels or multiple small vessels. Treatment of vascular lesions are based on a process called “selective photothermolysis” whereby the vessel supplying the lesion with blood is targeted and coagulated.
The following vascular lesions are treatable:
|Facial Telangiectasias||thread veins|
|Port-wine stains||red birth marks|
|Venous Lakes||blue/purple raised dilated lesions in the upper epidermis|
|Cherry Angiomas||red/bluish smooth vascular bump|
|Spider Angioma||red lesion that has a web of telangiectasias / spider veins|
|Rosacea||disease causing redness & swelling of the face with a similar appearance to acne|
Photo-Rejuvenation is performed by delivering a carefully selected wavelength of light to a specific area. Skin absorbs this light and the production of collagen is stimulated. As collagen is formed, fine lines and wrinkles in the targeted areas are decreased, pores are refined and sun damage is treated.

Pigmented lesions are caused by an excess of melanin in certain skin cells. Our Intense Pulse Light System from Ellipse™ works by targeting and safely destroying any excess melanin through a careful selection of wavelength for your skin type.
The following pigmented Lesions are treatable:
|Solar Lentigines||sun spots|
|Hormonal Malasma||epidermal hormonal pigmentation|
|Sun Damage||including diffuse redness & ageing skin|
|Café au Lait Macules||brown birth marks|
|Becker’s Nevi||birthmarks usually occurring at adolescence|
Permanent Hair Removal
Permanent hair removal is achieved by targeting the melanin in hair to destroy the hair follicle without damaging surrounding tissue. Treatment of permanent hair removal is most effective in the anagen growth phase (active stage).

Intense pulse light treatment of acne is aimed at two effects:
The photochemical effect: UV light exposure for 10-20 minutes targets porphyrines produced by bacteria that are the main cause of inflammatory acne
Selective photothermolysis: targets the sebaceous glands and retards the production of sebum (oil)
