How does Ellipse treatment work?

Ellipse uses an Nd.YAG laser (available on MultiFlex+ and Nordlys systems) to provide a fast effective treatment of resistant warts (those which do not respond to other treatment methods). An intense beam of infrared light is used to burn and destroy the wart tissue. A local anaesthetic may be given depending on the number and location of the warts.

Which warts can be treated?

A single burst of light is enough for smaller warts , whereas larger ones – such as plantar or mosaic warts found on the soles of the feet – may require multiple shots to ensure the whole area is treated. To assist the light to penetrate the skin, any callus or area of dead skin present will be thinned out using a razor or scalpel, and a thin layer of optical coupling gel will be applied.

How many treatments do I need?

This will be assessed with your laser technician

Does the treatment hurt?

This depends on the area being treated. Apart from the local anaesthetic injection, when you may feel a little sting at the beginning of the treatment as the area is numbed, you should not feel any discomfort. If anesthetic is not given, or when the treatment finishes and the anaesthetic effect wears off, some discomfort may be experienced. Normally patients are not required to take any pain killers.

How can I be sure Ellipse is safe and effective?

Clinical trials documenting Ellipse safety and effectiveness were carried out by leading doctors prior to the launch of the treatment, and these were published in respected, referenced medical journals
