Age spots,fine lines and wrinkles permanent hair reduction, sun damage, thread veins and rosacea


No more waxing or shaving! Unwanted hair can now be permanently removed with a flash of a light.

Facial Thread Veins

The system filters the light and causes the veins to gradually disappear.

Sun Damage

Keeps the skin looking smoother and fresher, by removing age spots caused be sun damage. It stimulates the body’s own production of collagen to even out fine lines and wrinkles, texture and tone.

We use the highly acclaimed Ellipse system, which has been clinically proven to be safe and effective, with less risk of adverse effects that can occur with some other systems.

Clinical trials documenting Ellipse’s safety and effectiveness were carried out by leading doctors prior to the launch of the treatment, and these were published in respected, referenced medical journals. You are welcome to view these scientific papers on the Ellipse website at

Hair Removal - Questions and Answers

Who is it for?

We can effectively treat all skin types for a reduction in hair growth as long as the hair colour is darker than the skin and the client is over 18 years of age.

The treatment is perfect for anybody that requires hair reduction on an unwanted area.

What does it do?

The light picks up the colour (melanin) in the bulb/hair and destroys the root of the hair to reduce hair growth in unwanted areas. You can expect to receive a long term 85% reduction in the entire hair growth.

How long does it take?

We usually suggest 4 to 6 treatments for hair removal.

Treatments are carried out every 4-6 weeks.


What happens in between treatments?


In between each session you will have a fall out phase; this is usually 1-3 weeks after a session.

The hair sheds away and you are left with a smooth finish. A couple of weeks later the hair begins to re grow, it becomes softer, finer and is reduced by around 20% of the entire growth each time.


How does the treatment feel?


The general feeling is a short, sharp heat for a split second on the skin. The sensation is quite mild.


Is there any after care?


We recommend that you avoid heat treatments including hot baths, saunas, and steam rooms for 24-48 hours.

You MUST avoid the sun and sun beds for 30 days before and after treatments.

Factor 30+ must be worn to reduce this risk.

Fake tanning products can be used 2 weeks either side of a treatment but must be completely removed before the next session.


How do I start?


Firstly you must book an appointment for a consultation. The therapist will go through a few medical questionnaire with you to see if you are suitable for the treatment. Following this, she will explain to you in full detail what the treatment entails and answer any questions for you.

A patch test on the area will then be carried out to check for any skin sensitivity to light treatments.

This will also give you a chance to experience the sensation of the light on your skin so that you know what to expect when coming in for your first treatment.



Anything else?


The hair must only be shaved during the treatments.

No plucking, waxing, bleaching, threading or immac creams to be used.

Following the treatment, SPF 30+ MUST be worn on the area after treatments if exposed to the sun.
