IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light - a method of treatment where a short but very powerful flash of coloured light is directed at the skin. The light appears coloured because it is filtered to remove certain wavelengths. The wavelengths removed are those which are very likely to cause complications. The wavelengths which are allowed through are carefully chosen to meet the needs of the treatment and may be changed through the use of filters depending on the condition to be treated. The Danish Ellipse+ IPL is dual filtered, which means that unwanted wavelengths at both ends of the light spectrum are filtered out to improve safety whilst maintaining efficacy.
The Ellipse+ is a doctor’s only IPL system which experienced IPL users find to be the most powerful and flexible IPL unit on the market today.
