You don’t have to try to cover your thread veins anymore. Ellipse uses short, safe bursts of light emitted from a flash-lamp to quickly remove thread veins from your face or legs.
A thread vein is a small blood vessel near the surface of the skin. The Ellipse operator guides the visible light from the flash-lamp to the blood vessels needing treatment.
The unique Ellipse I2PL system carefully filters this light in two ways to ensure that only light with the correct characteristics (wavelengths) is allowed to reach your skin.
Blood contains haemoglobin that absorbs the light and converts it into heat. This heat destroys the protein in the wall of the thread vein. As a result the veins will gradually, and safely, disappear after treatment.
To ensure optimal light transmission to the blood vessel, a thin layer of gel is applied to your skin before treatment.
Thread veins on all parts of your body can be treated. The most common treatments are for superficial veins in the facial, chest or leg areas. Ellipse has pre-programmed settings for different skin colours that deliver the correct energy output for your complexion.
The treatment time depends on the area to be covered and the number of distinct vessels to be treated. A single session typically lasts 10-20 minutes.
Tolerance of pain is very individual from person to person. No anaesthetics are required, and most people describe the sensation as slightly sharp on the skin, followed by a warm sensation lasting several minutes. You may find it comforting to cool the skin after treatment.
The light used is completely safe, visible light. The unique Ellipse Dual Mode Filtering system removes unwanted wavelengths.
Since tanning takes place by accumulation of pigment (melanin) in the skin, it is, however, important to avoid tanning (sun, solarium or self-tanning cream) for 60 days before the treatment period. Otherwise your tanned skin will absorb more light, which makes treatment less effective.
You may benefit from using a soothing cream for a few days after treatment. We recommend you limit sun exposure and use a sunscreen (SPF 30) for a few weeks following treatment. After treatment of thread veins on the legs, compression (surgical) stockings should be worn for two weeks.
If larger veins on the leg have already been treated (surgery or sclerotherapy), Ellipse treatment should be delayed for at least one month to allow the healing process to be complete first.
The number of treatments depends on the body site and the severity of the thread vein. Clinical studies have confirmed that 1-4 treatments usually are needed, and these are timed about one month apart.
Clinical trials documenting Ellipse’s safety and effectiveness are carried out by leading doctors prior to the release of the product.
From broken face and leg thread veins, spider veins, to the large port wine stain. Ellipse Flex Medical is an effective treatment for vascular lesions & veins.
