Hair removal is a constant worry for many men and women. For patients who are sick of the hassle associated with shaving, waxing, and other temporary hair removal techniques, laser hair removal offers a solution. Laser hair removal exposes areas of the body to beams of laser light that disable active hair follicles and delay or prevent regrowth.*
Dr. Mariano Busso’s state-of-the-art Ellipse Laser offers an alternative to slow, messy, and painful methods of hair removal. Ellipse square pulse and laser based systems provide a more efficient form of hair removal.
Because water in the skin is not targeted, laser hair removal treatment with Ellipse systems uses less energy, and targets more hair than other Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) systems.
The large footprint reduces treatment times. Ellipse quickly minimizes hair from the face, axillae (armpits), legs and bikini line, and chest and back.
Excellent hair clearance is obtained after only 4-6 treatments. Long-term Clinical studies prove that 77% of the treated hair is still gone after 10 years.*
Hair removal by Ellipse systems is generally less painful than many laser treatments.
Laser hair removal is ideal for patients with dark hair and light skin, although nearly anyone with unwanted facial or body hair can benefit from this procedure. This procedure can be performed on the lip, chin, neck, back, arms, legs, bikini area, and more.
After laser hair removal, patients may experience redness, puffiness, and sunburn sensations for the first few days. You may return to work and other regular activities as soon as you feel comfortable. Three to seven days after treatment, patients may notice what appears to be a re-growth of hair, but this is actually a shedding of the treated hair, which will fall out without regrowth.
Since hairs grow at different rates, multiple treatments will be needed at intervals of four to six weeks. The number of sessions depends on several factors, including your hair and skin color, hormone levels, and hair follicle size. The average patient sees up to a 48% reduction in hair growth after three treatments, and up to 80% after six to eight treatments.*
