Laser hair removal is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that removes unwanted hair on the body. With laser removal, light energy and radiofrequency are emitted and absorbed through the skin to the hair follicles. Once there, the energy turns to heat and deactivates the hair follicle, leaving the surrounding tissue intact. The radio frequency is used to offset the light energy so there is little to no discomfort. With laser hair removal, most any area of the body, except around the eyes, can be treated.
Ellipse® IPL Laser Hair Removal is the latest, most innovative hair removal system available. Faster than any other IPL hair removal system, the Ellipse® treats almost any skin type.
