Removes age spots, diffuse redness, Rosacea, poikiloderma of civatte and uneven pigmentation on the face and body.
As we age, certain things happen to our skin. We get more uneven pigmentation, age spots develop, and we gain fine lines and wrinkles. But help is at hand.
Nordlys will slow down and even reverse the visible signs of skin aging, removing the age spots and leaving the skin looking fresher and less wrinkled. Even better, there is no significant down time – you can have a treatment and resume your day immediately.
Everybody loves the sunshine! It’s good for the soul and the immediate effect it has on the skin such as a tan and healthy glow are much desired. However, in the long term sun exposure decreases the production of collagen and leads to uneven pigmentation, redness and a lack of firmness.

Frequently asked questions
It is important to avoid solarium and self-tanning products before and during the treatment period. It is possible to treat tanned skin, but reduce sun-exposure prior to treatment, otherwise the treatment will be less effective and less comfortable.
You will get maximum results if you use a normal moisturising cream before and after treatment. Talk to your doctor if you are prone to acne outbreaks or cold sores. After treatment, you should avoid sun exposure for 30 days, or use sun protection (minimum SPF 30) if sun exposure cannot be avoided.
Typically, you will be offered a course of four treatments, but if you are darker-skinned, your doctor may decide to offer a longer course of gentler treatments.
Treatment may be a little uncomfortable, which is why we recommend the use of a numbing cream. After this wears off you will have a few hours where the skin
feels as if you have a light sunburn.
The best results are seen with clients of skin types 1-3 and skin type 4 can be treated with care. It is important that the client avoids sun exposure 30-60 days prior to treatment. Sun exposure can increase the risk of pains or burns from excessive light absorption in the epidermis. If the client has a sun tan it may be better to wait until the colour reduces to achieve the best results. The Ellipse has pre-programmed treatment suggestions for different skin types.
