Ellipse IPL Hair Removal Treatment

At LVN Skin Care Laser Clinic we use the Ellipse IPL for all our hair removal treatments.  The Ellipse uses short, safe bursts of intense pulsed light to remove unwanted hair from the body.

How does Ellipse treatment work?  A thin layer of gel (similar to ultrasound gel) is applied to your skin before treatment, to ensure the maximum amount of light enters the skin. The Ellipse applicator is pressed against the skin and a carefully controlled pulse of visible light is released.  Potentially harmful wavelengths and wavelengths that only heat up water in the skin are removed using patented Ellipse Dual Mode Filtering. The remaining light is absorbed by pigment (melanin) in your hair.  Melanin converts the light into heat, which travels down the hair and heats the hair matrix, preventing future hair growth.  Because the treatment relies on absorption of light by melanin, there needs to be melanin in the hair.  This means that light blonde, red, grey or white hairs do not respond, and the most efficient treatment is seen with dark hair. Ellipse is able to treat all colours of skin, and has pre-programmed settings for different hair thicknesses and skin colours to match your exact needs.

How many Ellipse treatments do I need?  Every hair has a life cycle; it grows for a period of time, falls out, rests and then starts to grow again.  Only hairs that are growing can be treated – so you need to repeat the treatment at intervals until all hair follicles have been treated while growing. The length and timing of the growth cycles are affected by numerous factors such as body site, hormone levels and age. Clinical studies have shown that typically 3-6 treatments are needed, and the intervals between treatments are typically 1-3 months

Do I need to take special precautions before and after treatment?  It is important not to pluck, tweeze, wax or use hair removal creams during the four weeks before treatment. This ensures that as many hair follicles as possible contain a hair which can be destroyed.  It is also important to avoid tanning (sun, solarium or self-tanning products) before and during the treatment period. Otherwise your tanned skin will absorb the light instead of your hair. It is also recommended to use sunscreen (min. SPF 30) for a four weeks following treatment.

Does the treatment hurt?  While tolerance of pain is very individual, no anaesthetics are required, and most people describe the sensation as practically pain-free, similar to that of a rubber band snapping onto the skin.

How can I be sure Ellipse is safe and effective? Clinical trials documenting Ellipse’s safety and effectiveness were carried out by leading doctors prior to the release of the product, and it has been in daily use for over 20 years, with – uniquely – a 10 year follow-up study showing long lasting results

SUPER SERUM

We recommend SUPER SERUM
Super Serum is a hydrating antioxidant serum. Its unique new formula combines two of DMK’s signature serums – Beta Gel & Direct Delivery Vitamin C.

This transdermal serum is packed with potent betaglucan, plus vitamins B and C for maximum performance. Betaglucan stimulates the skin’s inbuilt immune system and works as an antioxidant against destructive free radicals that cause premature ageing.

Vitamin C stimulates collagen synthesis and cell regeneration. This is essential to healing and to the REBUILD stage of the DMK programme.

Super Serum is extremely beneficial for all skin conditions, particularly Acne, Poor Immune Response, Hyperpigmentation and Premature Ageing.

Recommended for those whose skin suffers from environmental damage eg smokers, and slow healers. Recommended for use after IPL, micro needling, microdermabrasion, laser peels and chemical peels. It renews the texture of the skin and boosts hydration.

Super Serum can be applied to the delicate areas around the eyes, mouth, neck, as well as to the face and body. It can be applied directly onto sutures and closed wounds, on both pre and post-operative clients.

First apply DMK Herb & Mineral spray, then apply Super Serum.

A Chemical Skin Peel
The chemical peel is one of the most honest skincare treatments around. It doesn’t hide behind fancy name. It is what it says: a chemical solution that harnesses your body’s natural processes of renewal, which can largely be summed up as “discard old skin cells to make space for new ones.” In other words it causes the skin to peel so that the new skin can grow in its place.
The idea of peeling away small amounts of skin might sound scary initially, but chemical peels are one of the most common treatments for correcting skin and achieving visible results – especially in winter, when skin needs a bit of a lift – simply because they have proven so very effective in rectifying damage and renewing skin.
What conditions are treated with chemical peels?
Chemical Peels are used to treat:
• Acne
• Ageing
• Hyper-pigmentation
But they are also great for:
• Firming and tightening
• Rejuvenation
• Resurfacing of skin
• Improving complexion
• Stimulating healthy new tissue growth
