Rosacea is a chronic condition characterized by facial erythema (redness) and sometimes pimples. It is a very common condition which for instance affects 5M people in UK, 16M people in USA, primarily fair to Mediterranean skin types.
Ellipse offers the ability to treat Rosacea with a single I2PL pass. This treatment is not a permanent cure, though some patients have long term remission after a course of treatments. Rosacea is a skin disease that causes redness and pimples on your nose, cheeks, chin, and forehead. The redness may come and go. People sometimes call rosacea “adult acne” because it can cause outbreaks that look like acne. It can also cause burning and soreness in the eyes and eyelids. Rosacea can be embarrassing. And if it is untreated, it can get worse.
Unlike laser, the light generated from Intense Pulsed Light Systems is broad waveband. The waveband of light emitted from the Ellipse System is chosen so that it both has the correct penetration depth and the optimal absorption by the target chromophore, with minimal absorption by the competing chromophores. The short flashes of light are timed to heat up the target to the correct temperature without damaging surrounding tissues.
