Ellipse Patented Dual Mode Filtering
Ellipse gets US Patent for Dual Mode Filtering
Dual Mode Filtering technology is now an even stronger asset, since we have been granted a U.S. patent for using water as one of our filters.
What is Dual Mode Filtering?
Intense Pulsed Light systems enjoy a list of abbreviations based around the letters “i, p and l” that are largely meaningless. The reason for this is that the term IPL is protected by a trademark, so manufacturers have to think of variations on the theme. These include a few systems that could be summed up as “NVEPL”, or “not very effective pulsed light”.
Ellipse I2PL technology is more than intense pulsed light. The 2 represents the second generation of Intense Pulsed Light – a clinically proven technology based on the principle of Dual Mode Filtering. This means that Ellipse systems filter the light more effectively; not only removing the lower wavelengths but also – exclusively -, those higher wavelengths that do little to help the treatment, but make the treatment uncomfortable.

Ellipse is more than D M F
A combination of Dual Mode Filtering and Square Pulse Technology is the main reason that Ellipse uses less energy compared to other manufacturers. Dual Mode Filtering filters out all unnecessary wavelengths, treating the target but reducing nonspecific heating of the skin. Square Pulse Technology ensures that the pulse of energy immediately reaches the desired level, stays at that level for the duration of the pulse and immediately shuts down at the end of that pulse. This minimizes the risk of adverse effects.
In other words, the light produced by an Ellipse applicator is absorbed by melanin or haemoglobin, according to the treatment, but much less is absorbed by water in the skin. This is the reason that Ellipse systems do not need to cool the skin during treatment. Consequently, Ellipse systems require less energy than other IPL systems to achieve better results. And Ellipse systems deliver short or very long pulses as the treatment demands. It is possible to deliver the correct energy in the appropriate pulse length.
