eLLIPSE iPL pERMANENT HAIR REDUCTION
Do you dream of smooth, hair free skin without having to shave or wax?
Excess or unwanted hair can be upsetting for both men and women. At David Patrick we offer you a gentle yet clinically-proven, safe and effective method of permanent hair reduction using Ellipse IPL (Intense Pulsed Light). You'll be in the capable hands of one of our experienced, specially trained Therapists, who between them have carried out hundreds of treatments with some fantastic results.
How does it work?
To achieve long lasting or permanent hair reduction, it is necessary to destroy the hair follicle from which each hair grows. Well controlled pulses of light penetrate the upper skin layer and are absorbed by one of the body's own natural chemicals, melanin, in the hair contained in the follicle.
Melanin converts the light into heat. This heat is transferred to the hair follicle, which is destroyed, making it unable to produce a new hair. The treatment is only effective on growing hairs as these are still attached to the follicle. The majority of our hair is in the resting phase which is why more than one treatment is necessary.
How many treatments will I need?
Hair grows in three different cycles and Ellipse Permanent Hair Reduction can only successfully treat hair during it's growth stage. Therefore it is often necessary to undergo a course of 6 treatments ensuring that you leave approximately 6 weeks between each session initially, and then only treating as and when the hair returns.
