A large proportion of the population suffers from disorders of blood vessels. These range in size from small telangiectasias (small thread veins, spider naevi) to larger port wine stains or birth marks. Most people choose to cover these up with make-up but they can cause significant psychological trauma. The Ellipse IPL treatment offers an effective and clinically proven therapy to remove these lesions.
Which thread veins can be treated?
Thread veins (small blood vessel near the surface of the skin) on most parts of the body can be treated. The most common treatments are for superficial veins on the face, neck and chest areas. As the treatment relies on absorption of light by the haemoglobin in the blood, the most effective results are seen with light skin. The lighter the skin, the more pronounced the contrast between the vessel and the skin, making treatment easier.
The results you will achieve from the Ellipse treatments are as follows:
1. Removal of the thread vein
2. Decreased size of thread vein
3. Skin texture & pore size will be improved and the skin will look brighter & younger
How long does an Ellipse treatment take?
A single session typically lasts 10-20 minutes
Does it hurt?
Tolerance of pain is varies from person to person. Most people describe the sensation as similar to that of a rubber band snapping onto the skin, followed by a warm sensation lasting several minutes. You may find it comforting to cool the skin after the treatment with a soothing aloe vera gel
How many Ellipse treatments do I need?
The number of treatments depends on the body site and the severity of the thread vein. Clinical studies have confirmed that 1-4 treatments usually are needed, and these are timed about one month apart. Only thread veins on the face, neck and chest can be treated
How can I be sure Ellipse is safe and effective?
Clinical trials documenting Ellipse’s safety and effectiveness are carried out by leading doctors prior to the release of the product. The results of these tests are then published in respected, refereed medical journals.
The cost of the Ellipse IPL Thread Vein removal treatment is dependant on the area treated. Generally prices start from £50 per session. Please do not hesitate to contact the clinic for more pricing options: firstname.lastname@example.org.
