Our innovative Intense Age Defence anti-ageing/wrinkle reduction programme from Ellipse is a painless, two-step procedure. The treatment uses safe and effective light emitted from a flash-lamp, together with our Photo Rejuvenation spray to quickly reduce and postpone the signs of ageing.
How does it work?
Our Photo Rejuvenation treatment is a two step procedure:
1. First your skin is sprayed with our rejuvenating spray. A generous amount is applied to the face and gently massaged into the skin. This procedure is repeated every 5 minutes for one hour. The spray makes your skin more receptive to the light and primes for collagen stimulation.
2. After spraying, a transparent gel (similar to that used in ultrasound examinations) is applied to your face. Your therapist will flash the flash-lamp to your face, going over the area 3 times. The treatment will take about 10 minutes.
Does the treatment hurt?
No, our Photo Rejuvenation Facial is base on the cells own natural way to reproduce, rather than on the heat energy caused by high powered flash lamps. The power of the light has been lowered to a level that causes no or very little discomfort.
Is it necessary to use both the spray and the light?
Yes! The effect of Photo Rejuvenation Facial is caused by the spray and by the IPL combined. The synergy between the two creates results, and studies show that neither the spray nor the light works on its own.
Do I have to prepare my skin prior to the procedure and how do I take care of my skin after and in between treatments?
We recommend that you use an exfoliating gel for at least one week prior to the treatment. The purpose of the exfoliating gel is to remove dead skin cells. This allows the light to better penetrate the skin. In between treatments, an SPF 30 will promote the renewal of your skin cells, protect against recurrence of wrinkles besides giving you a medium protection from UV radiation. If exposed to direct sunlight, use sunscreen as well.
Is the Photo Spray dangerous?
No, because the active ingredient in the Spray is present at extremely low levels - 0.5%, compared with typically 20% for similar topical creams. Because it uses liposomes to transport the active ingredient deep beneath the surface of the skin, the spray ensures effective treatment results with even greater safety and convenience than the standard method.
How many treatments will I need?
We recommend a 3 sessions for optimal results.
