IPL Permanent Hair Reduction

The Nordlys Ellipse I2PL effectively and safely removes unwanted hair, in addition to its ability to treat other skin conditions such as acne, pigmentation and signs of aging.

The I2PL machine uses short, safe bursts of light emitted from a flash lamp to treat specific skin conditions. The proprietary system very carefully controls the delivery of the light and the amount of light and speed of delivery is accurately tailored to your skin condition.

What Is IPL?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) directs high-intensity pulses of light into the skin to treat various skin problems. IPL systems work in the same way as lasers – light energy is absorbed by certain target cells in the skin. This light energy is then transformed into heat energy, which causes damage to the target cells. Unlike lasers, however, IPL delivers many wavelengths (or colours) in each pulse of light instead of just one wavelength.

Why Choose Nordyls I2PL?

In I2PL Permanent Hair Removal, the light wave is calibrated to target melanin in the hair shaft. This energy then permanently destroys the hair root responsible for producing hair. Unlike older Intense Pulsed Light machines, I2PL features an exclusive dual mode filtering technology that eliminates potentially harmful light wavelengths that are unnecessary, reducing treatment time and maximizing results.
The proprietary system very carefully controls the intensity and speed of delivery of light, tailored to your individual skin condition.

Apart from being able to permanently remove hairs, the Nordyls I2PL is able to rejuvenate the skin and improve pigmentation. It uses Selective Waveband Technology, which has extra filters to carefully control the light that reaches the skin. The light penetrates the skin better, contains only the wavelengths needed to get results, and destroys target cells without damaging normal tissue. This translates to more effective treatment, with fewer side effects and downtime.

Frequently Asked Questions

All Ellipse treatments are “peer-reviewed” i.e. independently checked by leading specialists and published. They also get approval under the EU Medical Directive, before they are performed on your skin. The I2PL hair removal is an FDA-approved treatment. Ellipse currently has a 10-year study which was released at the 22nd World Dermatology congress, proving its permanency at 10 years post-treatment. No other laser or IPL system can make this claim.
Because I2PL is a light-based technology, people with darker complexions possess a higher risk of skin burns due to the higher melanin levels absorbing the light energy. In addition, sensitive skin conditions such as eczema, rosacea and psoriasis may react adversely. In such cases, there may be skin redness, burning and stinging sensation, and in very rare cases, dermatitis in hypersensitive individuals.
No. While there is currently no evidence that suggests I2PL can adversely affect pregnancy, it is better to wait until after delivery. Hormonal changes during pregnancy can alter skin pigmentation and are often unpredictable.
With proper assessment of the treatment area and recommendation of the appropriate power level, any peeling or burns are rare. However, you must be sure to provide all medical history, including pre-existing conditions, medications, and treatment history.
There is minimal discomfort, most patients describe the sensation as being similar to the snap of an elastic band with some mild warming sensation. To make sure your comfort levels are met, we offer the option to apply a topical numbing cream before the treatment is administered.
There is no downtime and is unlikely to have any side effects. You may experience some mild flushing in the treated area. This is normal and temporary.
To ensure the effectiveness of IPL treatments, it is crucial to avoid plucking, tweezing, and waxing hair for at least four weeks before and during the treatment period. This allows for more hair follicles to contain hair, enabling their destruction by the light. It is also important to avoid tanning before and between IPL treatments, as it can reduce the treatment's effectiveness and increase the risk of adverse effects such as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Generally, no post-treatment care is necessary, but individuals with sensitive skin may benefit from using soothing aloe vera gel and sunscreen (SPF 50).
Hair growth occurs in cycles, with each hair follicle going through periods of growth, rest, and regrowth. IPL treatments can only target hairs that are in the active growth phase, so multiple treatments are needed to ensure all follicles are treated while actively growing. The number of treatments required varies depending on factors such as body site, hormone levels, and age. Typically, 3-6 treatments are needed, with intervals of 1-3 months in between. Follow-up treatments may be recommended to maintain results. Our doctors will discuss this with you prior to commencing treatment.
Each treatment varies from 15 to 45 minutes depending on the size of the area to be treated.
IPL hair removal is not permanent, but it can significantly prolong the period of hair dormancy compared to shaving and waxing.
After IPL hair removal treatment, some treated hair follicles may recover over time and start producing hair again. However, the regrowth is usually lighter, finer in texture, and less abundant than before the treatment.
Hair treatment with IPL depends on the presence of melanin in the hair. Light blonde, red, grey, or white hairs do not contain enough melanin and may not respond to treatment. Dark hair achieves the most efficient results.
