These treatments can be performed efficiently and professionally by the extremely well qualified Therapists at Catherine’s, using 8 different Ellipse applicators including small and large spot applicators there is very little this machine cannot do.

No more waxing, sugaring, threading, shaving, tweezing, bleaching how amazing does that sound with the Ellipse Nordlys it is now a possibility with the fast-superior hair removal treatment. The machine uses short and safe bursts of intense pulse lights that removes unwanted hair from anywhere on your body in minutes.
The likes of nail fungus can be treated by the Nordlys when a series of infrared light is aimed across the nail which results in the nail heating up and the fungus being destroyed after about 3-4 treatments results will be seen.
Rosacea is something that can be irritating for most people however the treatment that is offered by Ellipse can help reduce the symptoms, it does this by diffusing the redness in the early stages of rosacea, however individual vessels which develop can also be treated.
An overproduction of sebum can block the pores, with a mixture of hair protein sebum and fatty acids this eventually causes inflammation which leads to ACNE, with the Ellipse treatment it can slow down production of sebum as well as the ability to kill the acne bacteria through bursts of intense pulse light.
Sun Damaged Skin
Skin ages due to sun exposure causing hyper pigmentation and sun spots with the sun damaged treatment it helps to rejuvenate the skin for a younger and fresher look.
Thread veins on the face and chest are treated by breaking down the vessel wall therefore eliminating the unsightly veins, results are seen after the very first treatment.
Leg veins also become more prominent as we age and less blood is being pumped back from the veins these are also treated similarly to thread veins with the heat causing the vessel to collapse and eliminating the vein.
