Advanced Acne

Obtain a clearer complexion without the use of antibiotics.

Acne can be embarrassing, painful and a general nuisance to our appearance and confidence. The good news is that our brand new versatile platform, Nordlys has an advanced clearance treatment solution which has been clinically proven to be very effective and the success rates are high.

Does the treatment hurt?

No medical anaesthetics are required, and many patients describe the treatment as practically pain-free, like a flick from a rubber band followed by a sensation similar to the feeling of gentle warmth after a day on the beach.

How long does an Ellipse treatment take?

A course may vary depending on your initial condition and reaction. But Ellipse treatments offer a fast solution with no scarring. It is a non-surgical solution that delivers fast results without any skin discolouration or hyper pigmentation. It takes approximately 60 IPL flashes to treat the full face. Including consultation and preparation, you should count on 30 minutes in our clinic. 

Do I need to take special precautions before the treatment?

The light used is a completely safe, visible light so no special precautions are necessary.  

What can I expect after the treatment?

You may notice some general redness on the face following the treatment. If you have sun-damaged skin, some of the pigmented spots may turn darker and eventually disappear. Because bacteria is difficult to eradicate completely, your doctor will probably recommend that you continue using adapalene cream for some months after your Ellipse treatment has ended.

How many treatments should I have, and when?

A typical course of therapy includes 4 treatments, 3 weeks apart.

How can I be sure that Ellipse is safe and effective?

Clinical trials documenting Ellipse safety and effectiveness were carried out by leading doctors prior to the launch of the treatment, and these were published in respected medical journals. You are welcome to view these scientific papers on the Ellipse website at:

A consultation is manditory, as you will need a patch test before any treatment commences.
