Skin Rejuvenation with Ellipse™ I2PL™

Skin Rejuvenation with the Ellipse I2PL is the perfect solution for many common skin imperfections and one of our most exciting anti-aging services. I2PL Skin Rejuvenation Treatments help you keep a younger, fresher, evenly-toned skin. The safe, visible light emitted from the Ellipse flash-lamp makes your skin look younger by removing brown spots, diffuse redness, and by improving your skin texture. The I2PL Skin Rejuvenation treatment can treat a variety of common skin conditions including; chronic rosacea by reducing redness within the capillary walls, reducing sun damage (solar keratosis), and improving protein (collagen) synthesis. I2PL treatments give you the gradual, natural improvement with long lasting results. It can be used to treat the full face, neck, chest and even the hands. Two treatments are recommended annually.

  • What is Intense Pulsed Light?

    In its simplest form, this is a way of saying short flashes of very bright light.  Ellipse I2PL uses short, safe bursts of light emitted from a flash-lamp to treat specific skin conditions.  The technology is rather sophisticated, the Ellipse I2PL system very carefully controls the overall delivery of the light – both the amount of light and the speed of its delivery to your specific skin condition are exact and precisely controlled by Ellipse I2PL built-in computer.


  • The difference between laser and intense pulsed light.

    Treatments with laser and with intense pulsed light both work the same way, choosing wavelengths that are absorbed by the target.  But while a laser uses light with one specific wavelength, intense pulsed light uses a band of wavelengths.


  • Can I be treated?

    As skin rejuvenation is based on light absorption by melanin and hemoglobin, treatments are most effective in patients with light skin who are not sun-tanned at the time of the treatment. The lighter the skin, the more pronounced the contrast between the age spots or blood vessels and the skin, making treatment easier.  However, Ellipse I2PL has pre-programmed settings for different skin colors that deliver the correct energy output for your complexion.

  • Does it hurt?

    Tolerance of pain varies from person to person.  No anesthetics are required, and many patients describe it as a warming sensation similar to the feeling one has after a day on the beach.




  • Do I need to take special precautions before and after treatment?

    The light is a completely safe, visible light. Potentially harmful wavelengths are removed by the unique Ellipse I2PL Dual Mode Filtering system. Since tanning takes place by accumulation of pigment (melanin) in the skin, it is important to avoid tanning (sun, solarium or self-tanning cream) before and during the treatment period. Otherwise, your tanned skin will absorb more light, which may lead to adverse effects. Generally, no post-treatment care is necessary. But people with sensitive skin may benefit from applying an icepack to the face immediately after treatment. Furthermore, it is recommended to use a sunblock which blocks UVA and UVB (minimum SPF 30) for a few weeks following treatment.


  • What Can I expect after Treatment?

    You may notice that skin looks a little “discolored” for a few days following treatment. After that, you will find that your skin looks smoother and fresher.  You might choose to have one or two annual maintenance treatments in order to keep your youthful appearance.




  • How can I be sure Ellipse I2PL is safe and effective?

    Clinical studies documenting Ellipse I2PL’s safety and effectiveness have been completed, and the results of these studies are published in respected medical journals.  Please visit to view these scientific papers.  The settings used for your treatment will be based on the setting recommended by the clinicians who carried out the clinical trials.
