About Laser Hair Removal

Purejoy Advanced Skincare and Laser uses Ellipse - the fastest laser hair removal system on the market

The Ellipse system is practically pain-free in contrast to many laser treatments, and is clinically-proven to be safe and effective, with long-lasting effects. The majority of hair is  cleared after only 4 to 6 treatments, with clinical long-term studies proving that 77% of hair is still absent after 10 years.

The Process

The most efficient treatment is seen with dark hair. Light, blonde, grey, white or red hairs cannot be treated effectively with Ellipse hair removal, as these hairs do not contain melanin, which the treatment relies on for the absorption of light.

While pain tolerance varies from person to person, with Ellipse, no topical anaesthetic is required. The majority of Ellipse clients say the experience is practically pain-free, with the sensation similar to that of a rubber band snapping onto the skin.

Ellipse is suitable for all body areas including arms, underarms, bikini line, brazilian and legs.

Prior to the treatment, a thin layer of gel is applied to the skin to ensure the maximum amount of light enters the skin. The Ellipse applicator is then pressed against the skin and a carefully controlled pulse of visible light is released, which is absorbed by Melanin in the hair. Melanin then converts the light into heat, which travels down the hair and heats the hair matrix, preventing future hair growth.

Avoid waxing, tweezing, or using hair removal creams during the four weeks prior to your treatment. It is also important to avoid tanning in any form, be that sunbathing, using the solarium or self-tanning products before and during the treatment period. Having tanned skin while using the Ellipse will result in the skin absorbing the light instead of your hair. We also highly recommend using a minimum of an SPF 30 for at least a month following your treatment.
