What Is IPL?
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) directs high-intensity pulses of light into the skin to treat various skin problems.
IPL systems work in the same way as lasers – light energy is absorbed by certain target cells in the skin. This light energy is then transformed into heat energy, which causes damage to the target cells. Unlike lasers, however, IPL delivers many wavelengths (or colours) in each pulse of light instead of just one wavelength.
Why Choose Nordyls I2PL?
Apart from being able to permanently remove hairs, the Nordyls I2PL treats photo-rejuvenation & pigment clearance too. It uses a Selective Waveband Technology, which has extra filters to carefully control the light that reaches the skin. The light penetrates the skin better, contains only the wavelengths needed to get results, and destroys target cells without damaging normal tissue. This translates to more effective treatment, with fewer side effects and downtime.
The IPL Applicator Treats :
- Hair removal
- Photo rejuvenation
- Diffused vascular lesions
- Benign pigmented lesions
- Active acne
- Nail fungus
More Than 1
Nordlys avails several technologies in ine platform, the differennt technology choices enable treating Hari removal, vascular lesions, skin resurfacing, skin toning & skin rejuvenation.
- IPL targets melanin in hair and damages hair follicles
- Frax 1940 is used for skin toning & rejuvenation
- Nd:YAG applicator targets oxyhaemoglobin for blue veins clearance
- Frax 1550 fractional non-ablative applicator is used for moderate scars and skin laxity improvement
Pure Energy Selection
The waveband of light from Ellipse SWT is much narrower than a typical IPL so that it has both the correct penetration depth and the maximum absorption by the target (melanin in hair, pigment in the skin or haemoglobin in blood).
The Nordlys system has patented dual mode filtration, which ensures that the light contains only the wavelengths required to perform an effective treatment & eliminates harmful wavelengths, this maximises both safety & efficacy.
2 In 1 Laser
Frax offers a choice between 1550nm or 1940nm, or both handpicks. This scalability allows you to start with one wavelength and upgrade later by adding the other one for more clinical applications.
Effective In Smallest Targets
Small lesions can be targeted & treated effectively & safely by the Nordlys unique short pulse duration that starts as low as 0.5ms.
Nordlys can be upgraded by different choices of applicators, this allows starting with any applicator & upgrading with more applicators later according to the demand in our patients needs.
Optimised Vascular System
The sub-millisecond pulse duration allows treating different sizes of vessels effectively, the treatment is easily tolerated by a “ Soft Cool Technology “ - air cooling.
In I2PL Permanent Hair Removal, the light wave is calibrated to target melanin in the hair shaft. This energy then permanently destroys the hair root responsible for producing hair. Unlike older Intense Pulsed Light machines, I2PL features an exclusive dual mode filtering technology that eliminates potentially harmful light wavelengths that are unnecessary, reducing treatment time and maximizing your results and comfort.
The proprietary system very carefully controls the delivery of the light – the amount of light and speed of delivery is accurately tailored to your skin condition.
Benefits Of I2PL Permanent Hair Reduction

Areas That I2PL Can Treat

|We recommend that you shave the area at least a day before treatment for greater treatment comfort.|
Cold I2PL Gel
|A special gel is applied to facilitate light energy to enter the skin. You may be required to don protective eye wear as well.|
I2PL Hair Removal Application

Is This Treatment Safe?
All Ellipse treatments are “peer-reviewed” ie independently checked by leading specialists and published. They then get approval under the EU Medical Directive, before they are performed on your skin. the I2PL hair removal is an FDA-approved treatment.
Ellipse currently has a 10-year study which was released at the 22nd World Dermatology congress, proving its permanency at 10 years post-treatment. No other laser or IPL system can make this claim.
Are There Any Risks?
Because I2PL is a light-based technology, people with darker complexions possess a higher risk of skin burns due to the higher melanin levels absorbing the light energy.
In addition, sensitive skin conditions such as eczema, rosacea and psoriasis may react adversely. In the above such cases, there may be skin redness, burning and stinging sensation, and in very rare cases, dermatitis in hypersensitive individuals.
Is it safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women?
No. While there is currently no evidence that suggests I2PL can adversely affect pregnancy, it is better to wait until after delivery. Hormonal changes during pregnancy can alter skin pigmentation and are often unpredictable.
Will The I2PL Permanent Hair Removal Cause Skin To Peel?
With proper assessment of the treatment area and recommendation of the appropriate power level, any peeling or burns are rare. However, you must be sure to provide all medical history, including pre-existing conditions, medications, and treatment history.
How Does The Treatment Feel?
There is minimal discomfort, most patients describe the sensation as being similar to the snap of an elastic band with some mild warming sensation. To make sure your comfort levels are met, we offer the option to apply a topical numbing cream before the treatment is administered.
Is There Any Downtime?
There is no downtime and is unlikely to have any side effects. You may experience some mild flushing in the treated area. This is normal and temporary.
The I2PL Permanent Hair Removal is suitable for anyone looking to remove hair on the face, lip contour, and body!
It is unsuitable for individuals:
who have very dark complexions
who have medical conditions affecting the skin
who have an infection, tumour, or wound that has not fully healed in the treatment area
How Frequent Can This Treatment Be Performed?
This will depend on the areas to be treated. Typically, monthly sessions for several months is recommended, with most areas requiring up to 5 treatments for effective long term removal.
How Long Is Each Treatment?
Each treatment varies from 15 to 45 minutes depending on the size of the area to be treated.
How Many Treatments Are Needed?
The number of sessions recommended depends on the specific condition and the size of the area being treated. Doctor Vicki will discuss this with you before treatments commence. For optimal results, multiple treatments are sometimes recommended depending on your skin condition. Follow-up treatments may be recommended to maintain results.
