Transform your skin with Nordlys Ellipse IPL Treatments

How do you want to transform your skin?

Learn how the Nordlys™ system can help make your skin look clear and bright by delivering short bursts of light that directly target the blood vessels or melanin within your skin.

What Is Nordlys™ Ellipse IPL?

Nordlys™ Ellipse IPL is a treatment that delivers light energy to treat a wide range of hyperpigmentation, freckles, sun damage, rosacea, and blood vessels. IPL may also improve skin tone, texture, and firmness.

What is the difference between ablative lasers and non-ablative lasers?

Ablative and non-ablative lasers both use energy to penetrate through various layers of skin to repair the appearance of wrinkles, pigmentation, scarring, and other signs of aging. The main difference is non-ablative lasers do not break the surface of the skin, allowing for minimal or no downtime. Whereas, ablative lasers do break the surface of the skin, creating longer healing time and possible peeling.

The number of treatments depends on the location and the life cycle of your hair. Because every hair grows for a period of time, you may need to repeat the treatment at intervals until all hair follicles have been treated while growing.

Clinical studies have shown that 4 to 6 treatments are needed, and typically the intervals between treatments are 1 to 3 months.

The Nordlys™ system permanently reduces unwanted hair by delivering short, bursts of light directed at the target site. To ensure good contact with the skin, a thin layer of gel is applied to the skin prior to treatment.

Potentially harmful wavelengths and wavelengths that only heat up the water in the skin are removed using patented Dual Mode Filtering.12 The emitted light is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in your hair. Melanin converts the light into heat, which travels down the hair, toward the root, and heats the hair matrix, preventing future hair growth.

You may notice sloughing or darkening of some pigmented spots for a few days post-treatment. After that, you will find that your skin looks smoother and fresher. Depending on your baseline condition and esthetic goals, you may require up to 3 Nordlys Ellipse IPL™ for the transformative results. Since everyone experiences the natural aging process, you might choose to have 1 or 2 annual maintenance treatments to keep your skin looking its best.

The number of treatments depends on the location and number of vessels to be treated. Depending on your skin condition, you may need a few treatments to achieve your desired outcome. You should see an improvement after the first treatment, but up to 3 treatments may be required to achieve the full effect. Our team of experienced providers will work with you to create the most beneficial treatment plan, recommending the ideal number of treatments for your specific concerns. CLICK HERE TO SCHEDULE

Nordlys IPL: A Solution For Acne & Acne Scars For Skins Of All Ages

Are you suffering from acne? Well, you are not alone. Acne affects 50 million Americans a year – making it the most common skin condition in the United States.

Acne occurs when your sebaceous glands overproduce an oily substance called sebum. When extra sebum gets trapped in your hair follicles, your skin can become irritated – leading to the appearance of pimples on your face. Left untreated, some types of acne can cause permanent scarring.

Depending on its severity, active acne or visual reminders of past bouts of acne, may make you feel self-conscious about your appearance and leave you less self-assured. But it doesn’t have to be this way!  You can take control and regain your self-confidence with an easy Nordlys IPL skin treatment at Gerrish MedEsthetics.

Nordlys Ellipse IPL For Acne

Acne occurs when your sebaceous glands overproduce an oily substance called sebum. When extra sebum gets trapped in your hair follicles, your skin can become irritated — leading to the appearance of pimples on your face. Left untreated, some types of acne can cause permanent scarring.

The Nordlys™ system treats acne by reducing the blood supply to the sebaceous gland to slow down the production of sebum. The system delivers short, bursts of Ellipse IPL™ directed at the skin. Using patented Dual Mode Filtering technology, the system filters the light to ensure that only the wavelengths necessary for the treatment are used. Because of this, only the blood vessels that supply the sebaceous gland are impacted, while the surrounding vessels are not affected.

Because acne is difficult to eradicate completely, your Gerrish MedEsthetic Provider will discuss your treatment plan with Nordlys Ellipse IPL™ in addition to recommended topical treatments. If you have a future acne outbreak, the treatment can be repeated. As individual results may vary, talk to your healthcare provider about what results you can expect with your treatment.
