Hough Green Clinic are very proud to be able to offer you the very latest and most up-to-date laser and IPL treatments with our new Nordlys machine which replaces the older Ellipse I2PL system.
What is Nordlys?
Nordlys is a groundbreaking new machine from Ellipse, using light and laser to get astonishing results, treating many different aesthetic and medical disorders of the skin and nails. With more than 5,000 systems around the world, Ellipse is known for its outstanding results and safety. All Ellipse treatments are clinically proven and documented for safety and effectiveness and with the introduction of Nordlys, Ellipse have once again pushed the limits for what is possible within just one system.
What can it treat?
Ellipse Selective Waveband Technology (SWT) systems are used to treat a wide range of skin and nail conditions, including removal of unwanted hair, vascular lesions, epidermal pigmented lesions, sun damage (photo damage) onycomychosis (nail fungus) and leg veins.
What is laser?
LASER is an acronym for light amplification stimulated be emitted radiation. A laser differs from other sources of light such as IPL because it emits light in parallel beams, using a single wavelength.
What is IPL?
IPL is an acronym for intense pulsed light and unlike laser, the light generated from IPL systems uses a broad spectrum or waveband of light. The short pulses of light are timed to heat up the target to the correct temperature without damaging the surrounding tissues.
Laser + IPL = SWT (selective waveband technology)
The waveband of light from Ellipse SWT is much narrower than a typical IPL so that it has both the correct penetration depth and the maximum absorption by the target (melanin in hair, pigment in the skin or haemoglobin in blood).
The Nordlys system has patented dual mode filtration, which ensures that the light contains only the wavelengths required to perform an effective treatment.
Clinically Proven, Safe and Effective
All Ellipse treatments are "peer reviewed" ie independently checked by leading specialists and published. They then get approval under the EU Medical Directive, before they are performed on your skin.
Ellipse currently have a 10 year study which was released in the 22nd World Dermatology congress, proving its permanency at 10 years post treatment.
No other laser or IPL system can make this claim.
