Skin Rejuvenation in Glasgow

Everyone wants to have young and fresh looking skin, but over time and with exposure to sun this is not easy to achieve. Ellipse IPL can safely and effectively treat age spots and diffuse redness, reduce uneven pigmentation, and improve your skin texture – giving you a younger, fresher appearance.

For more information about skin rejuvenation using Ellipse IPL please speak with one of our beauty therapists on 0141 629 2830.

How does Ellipse IPL rejuvenate skin?

Skin rejuvenation is the treatment with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) of aged or sun damaged skin, including diffuse redness (high colour) and pigmented lesions such as sun spots / freckles. Ellipse IPL uses light that is carefully filtered to contain only the required wavelengths. This light is applied systematically to the skin using a specially designed flash-lamp by a trained IPL therapist.

Ellipse IPL specifically targets the melanin contained in sun spots, and the haemoglobin contained in areas of diffuse redness. This process heats up and destroys both types of unwanted cells, which will then be broken down and removed by the body’s natural waste disposal system.

The treatment will also stimulate collagen to give a plumped up rejuvenated skin.

Is it safe?

The IPL system uses completely safe, visible light to treat sun spots and diffuse redness. Ellipse boasts a unique Dual Mode Filtering system which eliminates all potentially harmful types of light, and makes sure only light that has the correct wavelengths enters the skin. Studies by prominent universities have shown the safety of Intense Pulsed Light to treat skin conditions.

Is it pain-free?

Everyone varies in their sensitivity to pain, but most clients describe the sensation of IPL treatment as a heat sensation, like a hot sharp burst of light.

How long does Ellipse IPL skin rejuvenation treatment take?

For best results 1-3 treatments are recommended for treating pigmentation, with 4 week intervals.

What precautions do I need to take before or after treatment?

Sun exposure or fake tan should be avoided during a course of treatment. This is because the IPL treatment is more effective on relatively pale skin, as darker complexions absorb too much of the light.

Thread Vein Removal in Glasgow

Unsightly thread veins on the face, chest or leg areas can cause significant embarrassment and distress, so many men and women are turning to thread vein removal. Ellipse harnesses the power of natural light to quickly and safely remove thread veins – so call us today on 0141 629 2830 and speak to one of our experts about thread vein removal in Glasgow!

What are thread veins?

Thread veins are very fine blood vessels visible near the surface of the skin. Thread or ‘spider veins’ (medically known as telangiectasias) tend to run in families, and can also be caused by trauma to the skin or through sun exposure. Though harmless, they often cause embarrassment and distress when they occur on facial, chest or leg areas, and so many thread vein sufferers try to cover them up at all times.

How does Ellipse IPL remove thread veins?

Ellipse uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to safely and effectively remove thread veins. The specially trained Ellipse operator will guide the Ellipse lamp across the affected area, and apply short pulses of light to the skin. The light is absorbed by the blood in the vessels, causing a heat reaction which coagulates the blood and destroys protein in the wall of the vessel. The vessel then breaks down and is removed by the body’s natural waste disposal system. Because Ellipse IPL uses intense light to treat these veins it is sometimes called ‘laser thread vein removal’.

Is it safe?

The IPL system uses completely safe, visible light. Ellipse features a unique Dual Mode Filtering system that removes any potentially harmful wavelengths of light, and makes sure only light with the right wavelengths reaches the skin. Studies at leading universities have confirmed the safety of IPL skin treatments.

Is it pain-free?

The sensation that is felt depends upon the amount and size of vessels in the area. Everyone varies in their degree of sensitivity to pain, but most clients describe the sensation as comparable to an elastic band being snapped onto the skin, followed by a feeling of warmth for a few minutes.

Can all such veins be treated?

We can treat thread veins on all parts of the body. Common problem areas include the face, chest and legs. We can also treat Campbell de Morgan spots (also known as haemangioma or just angioma) with Ellipse IPL.

How long does Ellipse vein removal take?

On average 2-4 treatments (with 4 week intervals) are needed for best results. Top-up sessions may be required.

How much does thread vein removal cost?

We are unable to provide thread vein removal prices until one of our beauty consultants has examined the skin areas affected. This is because every person’s skin is unique, and the amount of treatment required depends on the nature and extent of your thread veins.

What precautions do I need to take before or after treatment?

Sun exposure or fake tan has to be avoided throughout a course of treatment. This is because the treatment is more effective when there is a greater difference between a light skin tone and the dark blood vessels.

Acne Treatment in Glasgow

Acne affects most people at some stage in their lives and can be extremely embarrassing and distressing. Ellipse IPL uses the power of natural light to treat the underlying cause of acne quickly and safely. If you are looking for a proven method of acne treatment in Glasgow, why not speak to one of our highly trained skin consultants – call us now on 0141 629 2830.

What causes acne?

Despite what many people think, acne is not caused by poor diet or hygiene. Acne is actually a bacterial infection that occurs in blocked pores, caused by excessive production of oil by sebaceous glands in the skin. Waste products and sebacic acid are produced as the bacteria multiply, leading to inflammation of the sebaceous gland.

How does Ellipse IPL treat acne?

The Ellipse system uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to quickly and safely treat the cause of acne. The highly experienced Ellipse operator will move the Ellipse lamp throughout the area to be treated, applying brief flashes of intense light to the skin.

The intense light targets porphyrins made by the bacteria, producing oxygen free radicals which go on to kill the bacteria. The light is also absorbed by the blood in the vessels that supply the sebaceous glands, causing a heat reaction which coagulates the blood and destroys protein in the wall of the vessel. The vessel then breaks down and is removed by the body’s natural waste disposal system. Because Ellipse IPL uses intense light to treat acne it is sometimes referred to as ‘laser acne treatment’.

The heat reaction produced will stimulate collagen production, helping to heal the blemishes and may even soften the appearance of scarring.

The Ellipse acne treatment is a combination therapy. We recommend you also use a cream or gel containing adapalene – this can be prescribed by your doctor.

Is it safe?

The IPL system uses completely safe, visible light to treat acne. Ellipse boasts a unique Dual Mode Filtering system which eliminates all potentially harmful types of light, and makes sure only light that has the correct wavelengths enters the skin. Multiple studies by top universities have demonstrated the safety of IPL skin treatments.

Is it pain-free?

Everyone varies in their sensitivity to pain, but most clients describe the sensation of IPL treatment as feeling like an elastic band snapping onto the skin, and a feeling of warmth that may last for a few moments.

Can all acne be treated?

We can treat acne on all parts of the body. Common problem areas include the face, chest and back. We can achieve the best results on what is called ‘inflammatory acne’ – spots that are painful, red, and raised.

How long does Ellipse IPL acne treatment take?

For best results a course of 4 treatments is recommended, with 3 week intervals between sessions.

What precautions do I need to take before or after treatment?

Sun exposure or fake tan has to be avoided throughout a course of treatment. The treatment is more effective with relatively pale skin, since a darker complexion will absorb too much of the light.
