Ellipse Frax 1550nm laser treatment works by creating very small, very controlled islands of heat damage, surrounded by healthy normal skin. When the body repairs this controlled damage, collagen in the whole of the treated area is replaced, reducing those fine lines, and leaving the skin fresher. At the same time, the surface of the skin is renewed, improving the pigment. Research has shown that a combination treatment using Ellipse narrowband light (Ellipse IPL) followed by the Frax 1550 produces an even better result with less treatments. And because the surface of the skin is left intact, you recover very quickly.
