Everybody loves a bit of sunshine! It is good for the soul.
However, in the long term, sun exposure decreases the production of collagen and leads to pigmentation and redness. Luckily, we have a solution for sun damaged skin.
With Nordlys, we can effectively rejuvenate the skin with our advanced platform, by directing well controlled pulses of light into the upper skin layer. It is a quick and simple treatment, allowing you to carry on with your normal daily routine afterwards.
The visible light produced by the Ellipse Laser/ SWTTM system is carefully controlled to produce the correct pulse length and right amount of energy to destroy the targets without damaging surrounding tissue, providing skin rejuvenation. This is a quick and simple treatment that does not interfere with your normal daily routine and currently offers the best anti-ageing skin treatment around.
The best results are seen with clients of skin types 1-3 and skin type 4 can be treated with care.
It is important that the client avoids sun exposure 30-60 days prior to treatment. Sun exposure can increase the risk of pains or burns from excessive light absorption in the epidermis. If the client has a sun tan it may be better to wait until the colour reduces to achieve the best results. The Ellipse has pre-programmed treatment suggestions for different skin types.
The treatment works by directing well-controlled pulses of light into the upper skin layer.
The light is absorbed by two of the body's own natural chemicals - melanin in the pigmented areas and haemoglobin in the red blood cells.
Both these pigments convert the light energy into heat. This heat is used to destroy the parts of the cells in which the melanin is stored, and to damage the walls of the vessels supplying blood to the areas where vascular damage is seen.
Following the treatment, you may experience a slight redness, which disappears soon after.
As with all IPL based treatments, the sensation is likened to an elastic band snapping at the skin.
We usually recommend a course of 6 treatments to see the best results possible from this treatment, however this does depend on the condition of your skin - whether you have a small amount of damage or a lot.
