Many factors contribute to aging our skin, including excessive sun exposure and decreased production of collagen. Over time, due to cumulative sun exposure alterations in the colour and texture of the skin inevitably occur. In addition, the collagen in the skin that keeps it taut begins to weaken, and with the pull of gravity the skin becomes lax. The result is wrinkled, sagging, uneven, and blotched skin. For the first time, full thickness rejuvenation of the skin can literally turn back the clock, restoring a more youthful and vibrant appearance to your skin.

However, in today’s society, as individuals strive to look youthful, it is not unusual for people to spend thousands of pounds on creams or surgery to maintain a youthful appearance. Thanks to the miracle of IPL technology, invasive procedures and “miracle” creams are a thing of the past!

The clinically-tested Ecolite photo rejuvenation treatments uses safe, visible infared light to give you a younger and fresher look.

The light emitted is designed to ensure that only the desired wavelengths reach your skin for the reduction of age spots, visible blood vessels, uneven pigmentation or diffuse redness.

Prior to your treatment, all you will be asked is to avoid tanning.. Since tanning increases the melanin in your skin, it will cause the skin to absorb a larger amount of light which ultimately makes the treatment less effective. In terms of post-treatment care clients with sensitive skin may benefit from applying an ice pack to the face immediately after treatment.

Additionally, it is recommended to use a sunscreen (minimum SPF 30) for a few weeks following treatment, and you should not expose to heat for 48 hours. In order to maintain this fresh look, clients often elect to schedule 1-2 annual maintenance treatments in order to keep their youthful appearance.


Skin Imperfections

Ecolite IPL technology is also an innovative way to quickly, safely and comfortably improve Rosacea, treat sun-damaged skin, remove age spots from your face, chest, arms, and hands, and eliminate unwanted thread and spider veins.

For each treatment, the Ecolite operator has been trained to customize the equipment to target specific blood vessels or skin components for the desired treatment. Amazing results can be seen in as few as 3-4 sessions!

Thread and Spider Veins

facialveinsThread and spider veins, which affect the face, body and legs, are extremely common and can be very embarrassing. However, IPL technology can now me used to
effectively remove them!

The causes of thread veins are unknown, however, although they may be caused by changes in temperature, smoking, hormonal changes, alcohol and prolonged standing, or even an inherited condition. Spider veins are small, thin capillaries that lie close to the surface of the skin. They are connected to a larger venous system, though they are not an essential part of it since they do not actually carry blood to the heart. Spider veins form when excess blood backs up in the blood stream. The excess blood creates pressure, which is released when the body creates new veins on the skin’s surface. The primary problem with spider veins is their unsightly appearance, but they can also cause aching, swelling, burning. IPL can now be used to remove thread and spider veins on the face, body and legs.

The Ecolite IPL emits a powerful yellow light that is absorbed by the red colour in the veins. As the light is absorbed it turns into heat, selectively damaging the veins. 
Vein treatments are performed quickly, within 15 to 20 minutes, yielding complete results after around 4 or 5 sessions. There is no downtime, and it is faster and more effective than any other method on the market today.


Rosacea is a chronic skin disease that causes redness and swelling, on the face, scalp, neck, ears, chest and back. The condition can often progresses to a persistent redness, pimples and visible blood vessels in the centre of the face that can eventually involve the cheeks, forehead, chin and nose. Although the cause of Rosacea is unknown, various treatments have been developed to fight this annoying skin ailment.

Today, IPL is considered to be the best treatment for this condition. Not only do most rosacea sufferers see great improvements in symptoms, but also a reduction in the rate of flare ups. Furthermore, the warming effect of the light energy from the IPL device also increases the production of collagen and has a tightening and smoothing effect on the skin.

This increase in collagen supports and heals the tiny blood vessels in your skin. People with mild to severe rosacea can see an 80 to 90% overall reduction in facial redness in 4-6 treatments.

Sun damaged skin and pigmentation

Skin pigmentation, also known as age or liver spots, usually occur in sun exposed areas on the body. The increased pigmentation in these spots is brought on by ageing, over exposure to the sun or other forms of ultraviolet lights. In order to help remove these spots, IPL uses wavelengths of heated light which are directly aimed at the pigmented spots. The advantages of this technology include the fact that the pigment is able to be targeted precisely without damaging the surrounding tissue.

After the session, the skin pigmentation or sun spots will gradually fade and slowly disappear. However, in some instances the pigment may appear darker as it heals itself 
whilst in other cases it can flake up in a bid to eliminate the pigment in an external scab form. IPL treatments effectively reduce skin pigmentation in approximately 4-6 visits. Most clients report 70% (or greater) improvement over the duration of their treatment course.
