IPL treatments use light to rejuvenate the skin without harming its surface. They provide a non-invasive therapy that leads to healthier looking skin by reducing unwanted pigmentation, excessive redness, small broken blood vessels, and large pore size. The additional colour in the skin (melanin in brown areas or blood cells in red areas) absorbs the light energy, which damages the structures and causes eventual absorption by the body. IPL therapy can be used on any area to reverse the signs of sun damage.
Using the latest technology in photo-rejuvenation, IPL ElosPlus and GentleMax Pro Plusis effective in pigmentation removal, vascular lesion removal, and capillary removal, leaving skin beautifully clear and even-toned. Treatment can rejuvenate the face, hands, neck or décolleté by removing skin pigmentation and superficial blood vessels.

Rosacea is caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors, such as a compromised immune system, possessing fair or light skin, a family history of rosacea, or suffering too much exposure to sunlight. The first signs of rosacea can be subtle and may include occasional blushing or a noticeable redness of the skin. Over time, these symptoms can become more persistent and pronounced. Bumps, pimples, and enlarged blood vessels may appear, which gives your skin a rough, uneven look. At times, symptoms may be severe enough that the skin tissue of the nose becomes thick, swollen and bumpy.
* Mild (erythematotelangiectatic): Identified by facial flushing and redness, which may only be present at times. You may also experience some swelling, burning and stinging, roughness and noticeable red blood vessels.
Moderate (papulopustular): This more-advanced form of rosacea is marked by persistent redness and pimple-like bumps that may be confused with acne, as well as burning and stinging.
Severe (phymatous): As mentioned above, rosacea may affect the nose, causing the skin tissue to thicken and become bumpy. This severe form of rosacea is called rhinophyma, and most often occurs when the condition is left untreated.
*Elite Wellness & Beauty Spa only treats the Mild Type of rosacea.
The best success is usually achieved through a treatment plan that includes suppression and prevention, correction, and ongoing (lifelong) maintenance and management.
