Ellipse MicroLight puts the beauty of Ellipse SWT® hair removal within reach of just about any business-minded clinic. Priced as attractively as it performs, Ellipse MicroLight features easy operation and is pre-programmed to ensure safe and effective hair removal treatments.
MicroLight comes as standard in the HR version dedicated for hair removal, but a Pro version which also offers skin rejuvenation is also available.
Hair removal applicators
Great footprint - hair removal on full back in less than 20 minutes
Intuitive and user-friendly user interface
Advanced technologies for comfortable treatments
Ellipse light-based solutions feature a combination of two advanced, scientifically documented technologies: Ellipse’s unique Dual Mode Filtering and Square Pulse Technology. Dual Mode Filtering eliminates unnecessary and potential harmful wavelengths, allowing only those that are beneficial to the treatment, and the Square Pulse Technology minimises the risk of side effects by ensuring consistent intensity of energy throughout the pulse.

Ellipse Selective Waveband Technology (SWT®)
The raw light from the flash-lamp used in Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) systems includes invisible ultraviolet and infrared light, as well as visible white light. First-generation Intense Pulsed Light systems filter out the ultraviolet light, but allow the infrared light through.
The Ellipse SWT® system has an extra filter to remove the infrared light (which is not absorbed by the target chromophores, melanin and haemoglobin but which is absorbed by the interstitial fluid). This ensures that the light that is directed to the skin contains only the wavelengths that are required to perform the treatment. Treatment with SWT® is thereby more effective, since it uses much less energy and does not require artificial cooling. The risk of side effects is also reduced.
Ellipse SWT® systems are used to treat a wide range of skin conditions, including the removal of unwanted hair, vascular lesions, epidermal pigmented lesions, photo-damage, acne vulgaris and PDT treatments. SWT® uses a treatment methodology called Selective Photothermolysis, also used with lasers, to target specific chromophores in the epidermis.
The importance of energy and pulse control
The amount of energy is important; to ensure that the target receives the energy required getting the desired result without damaging the surrounding tissue.
The pulse time is important because it controls how quickly the energy is delivered. This is determined by the Thermal Relaxation Time (TRT) of the target. For fine adjustment these can be altered by the user.
As well as the pulse duration, the shape of the pulse is also important. Because the energy is measured over the full length of the pulse, it is important that the pulse shape is as square as possible. That is to say the intensity of the pulse should be consistent throughout its life.
An inconsistent pulse will mean that the skin receives different levels of energy throughout the pulse. It also means that the spectrum of the light will change from the theoretical values during the pulse (similar the effect seen when a dimmer switch is used).
Unlike many other products on the market, Ellipse carefully controls both the amount of energy and the pulse so that the best possible result is obtained.
Ellipse Dual Mode Filtering and Square Pulse Technology
Ellipse's patented Dual Mode Filtering and Square Pulse Technology are the key innovations enabeling practically painfree hair removal - which differentiate Ellipse from many ordinary IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) systems.
