Elize Gay safely and effectively remove facial thread veins (broken capillaries) with the technologically Ellipse Flex IPL thread vein removal treatment. The procedure will remove redness and broken capillaries from the surface of the skin.  


Many people suffer from broken blood vessel on the face.  These range in size from small to medium telangietasias (small thread veins, spider naevi).   The Ellipse Flex IPL treatment offers an effective and clinically proven therapy to remove these lesions.


Q:  Which thread veins can be treated?

Thread veins (small blood vessels near the surface of the skin) on the face, neck and chest can be treated.  As the treatment relies on absorption of light by the heamaglobin in the blood, the most effective results are seen with lighter skin, skin types 1-3.  The lighter the skin, the more pronounced the contrast between the vessel and the skin, making treatment easier.

Q:  The results you will achieve from the Ellipse treatments are as follows:

1.  Removal of thread vein size

2.  Decreased size of thread vein

3.  Skin texture and pore size will be improved and skin will look brighter & younger.

Q:  How long does the Ellipse Flex IPL treatment take?

A single session typically lasts 10 min

Q:  Does it hurt?

Tolerance of pain varies from patient to patient.  Most people describe the sensation similar to a rubber band snapping over the skin, followed by a warm sensation lasting several minutes.  You may find it comforting to cool the skin after the treatment with a soothing aloe vera gel or cold compress.  Sometimes, in rare patient cases an anti-inflammatory or anti-histamine can be used to reduce swelling.

Q:  How many treatments do I need?

The number of treatments depends on the body site, the severity of the thread vein, as well as the factors that caused the vein in the first place.   Clinical studies have confirmed that 1-3 treatments usually are needed and these are timed about one month apart.  Only thread veins on the face, neck and chest can be treated.  This treatment is ideal to manage thread veins & redness as the veins generally will re-appear at some point.  Again, minimizing the exposure to the  external factors that caused the veins in the first place will give longer results.  

Q:  How can I be sure Ellipse Flex IPL is safe and effective?

Clinical trials documenting Ellipse Flex IPL's safety and effectiveness are carried out by leading doctors prior to the release of the product.  The results of these tests are then published in respected, refereed medical journals.  My before and after un-retouched photographs can be viewed prior to treatment.
