INTENSE PULSE LIGHT HAIR REMOVAL AND SKIN REJUVENATION SYSTEM
TUSC would like to introduce everyone to the revolutionary new ELLIPSE LIGHT system, for safe effective hair and pigmentation removal. The system is the
first of its kind in South Africa and we very excited to be introducing it to you
So how does it work?
ELLIPSE uses completely
safe, short bursts of visible light emitted from a flash lamp. The light is then filtered by a dual mode filtering system that ensures that only the
light of the correct wavelength reaches the skin. Any harmful wavelengths are eliminated, preventing burns from occurring during treatment.
The appropriate wavelength is then absorbed by the pigment in the hair, and converted to heat. The heat is transmitted to the hair follicle, which is then
destroyed and unable to produce a new hair.
The number of treatments required will vary from person to person, as hair growth in the body is cyclical consisting of growth and resting phases. Only
follicles that contain a hair in the growth phase will respond, those in the resting phase will not.
It is therefore necessary
to repeat the treatment until all follicles have been through their growth phase.
On average 3-8 treatments are needed, with intervals of about 4-8 weeks.
It is important that no hair be removed by plucking, tweezing, waxing or depilatory cream during the 4 weeks before having a treatment. This ensures that
as many follicles as possible contain a hair. Tanning outdoors or on sunbeds, and the use of selftan must also be avoided, as the extra melanin in
the skin will make the treatment less effective.
It is also very important to limit sun exposure for a few weeks after treatment, and apply a good sunblock on a daily basis to prevent pigmentation.
There is no need for use of anaesthetics beforehand, and pain tolerance will vary from person to person. The sensation is much like a rubber band snapping
on the skin.
ELLIPSE has also developed a revolutionary system ideally suited to safe hair removal on dark skins. This is the first of its kind in the world, previously
darker skin tones could not be treated without causing burning and pigmentation.
For those of you with
sun damage, age spots, pigmentation, diffused redness and sun induced premature ageing -we now have a solution!
ELLIPSE has created a photo rejuvenation treatment to deal safely and effectively with these problems.
This treatment however is only suited to medium and light complexions where there is a pronounced contrast between colour or blood supply, and the surrounding
skin. This will allow the light to target the desired area only, and not the surrounding skin.
A client should expect to have 1-3 treatments with approximately 6 week intervals.
