lightfusion™ LED is a totally natural, non-invasive treatment that is proven to boost collagen, increase hydration and improve microcirculation in just 10 minutes.
The lightfusion™ LED device infuses light deep through skin layers and into the cells. It works from the inside out to stimulate collagen and elastin production at the cellular level. This renews the cell whilst oxygenating the external layers of the skin. The results will allow skin to better absorb skincare accelerating the improvement in skin’s texture and tone. We further extend the treatment benefit by also including a take home overnight cream to promote ongoing skin rejuvenation.
Yes. The treatment stimulates the intricate cellular processes that stimulate collagen production, increasing skin elasticity and promoting greater blood flow and tissue oxygenation.
It doesn’t need to. Scientific research has shown that the effect of low-level light therapy spreads throughout the tissue. Just like one rain drop in a lake, the effect of one drop ripples out and spreads much wider than the original rain drop. The treatment pads have been specially designed to cover as much of the face as possible while not feeling claustrophobic like traditional panel type LEDs can.
No. The treatment heads do not get hot nor feel hot against the skin. They produce light energy with very little thermal energy, making the treatment relaxing as well as effective.
Yes. Low-level light therapy increases blood flow and tissue oxygenation within skin treated with red and near infra-red light, helping the skin utilise active ingredients more effectively.
Yes. endota spa lightfusion™ will enhance and accelerate the results from other treatments particularly facials, microdermabrasion and peels because it builds healthy skin from the inside out, complimenting other treatments.
After a single treatment skin may feel firmer and tighter with a reduced pore size and skin will feel softer and smoother due to the instant hydration and enhanced absorption of the ingredients in the hydrogel mask. Your complexion will look more vibrant and fresher due to the increased blood flow and tissue oxygenation at the cellular level. A course of 4 treatments will help improve fine lines and wrinkles and will improve skin firmness, elasticity and any pigmentary issues. Results can last for several months following a course of 4 treatments, however maintenance sessions are advised to ensure longer lasting results.
No. Because endota spa lightfusion™ LED uses non-thermal properties it does not damage skin cells. During a treatment, skin cells reach a light absorption level at which point they no longer absorb light.
No. Unlike other traditional LED panel systems that surround the face endota spa lightfusion™ is specifically designed to deliver a comfortable treatment. It does not cover the eyes or feels heavy on the skin. The LED’s used are the first of their kind delivering two wavelengths at the correct energy from one diode making the device light and enabling treatment times to be reduced to 10 minutes.
Our Tandota spray tan will provide you with a natural looking tan that will suit most skin tones.
Wear dark, loose fitting clothing, preferably without a bra. Tight clothing can cause the tan to rub and dry in patches.
Tandota develops for up to 8 hours. You must leave the tan on for a minimum of 2 hours.
Guide to showering:
2 hrs —very light colour
4 hrs —light/medium colour
6 hrs+ —deep colour.
After showering pat the skin dry rather than rubbing with a towel. Use shower gel rather than bar soap if possible.
It’s fine to leave the tan on overnight and wash in the morning; however, some colour may transfer onto bed linen. This will wash out of cotton sheets but will be difficult to remove from manmade fibres or wool.
For best results, clients should avoid swimming or chlorine pools as these may bleach the tan. Any activity that may cause perspiration should also be avoided for at least the first 12 hours after the treatment.
It is essential to have clean, perfume free skin before having a spray tan as any residue from oils or deodorant will create a barrier to the tan and reduce results.
In the days leading up to the treatment it is also a good idea to exfoliate, paying special attention to dry areas including the hands, elbows and knees. Exfoliating will ensure that the skin is smooth and properly prepared for an even looking, long lasting tan. You may consider booking a full body exfoliation the day before your spray tan.
Try to wax or shave 24 hours prior to your spray tan to reduce your skin’s sensitivity. Wait for as long as possible after a spray tan to shave and avoid waxing until your tan has faded.
Prior to a spray tan you should receive a thorough consultation from your Therapist. Make sure to discuss relevant information such as the event you are attending or how dark you wish the tan to develop.
To maintain an even looking tan longer you can use the Lilly Pilly & Lime Gradual Tanner. This product will extend the life of the tan and hydrate the skin. As the tan starts to wear, exfoliate the body every few days to ensure the tan fades easily.
You may wish to combine the Lilly Pilly & Lime Gradual Tanner with our Vanilla & Macadamia Body Drink or Coconut & Grapefruit Melting Body Balm to keep your skin soft and supple following a spray tan.

Melanie Gleeson, endota spa Founder and CEO began business in 2000 and franchising endota spas in 2004.
A territory is usually determined by either a kilometre radius or postcodes. This does vary from time to time and is
measured with common sense.
You can purchase more than one territory and we have a pricing structure in place providing for discounts for
multiple upfront purchases.
Yes, almost half of our franchisees own multiple sites or are considering purchasing additional locations.
The locations of existing endota spa franchises are many and varied. Each owner has an idea of where and what
they would like their spa to be and we encourage business owners to thoroughly research proposed locations
before deciding on a suitable site.
While endota spa does not choose the locations, we are regularly approached by landlords or developers with
opportunities, which are then assessed by endota spa and presented to prospective franchisees.
Although endota spa must approve your proposed location, it is ultimately your signature on the lease and you have
the final decision as to whether the proposed site is suitable for the needs of your endota spa franchise.
Once you have paid your franchise fee in full, we will begin to work with you on finding a suitable location within
your agreed territory and negotiate an acceptable and sustainable lease structure. This must be approved in
writing by endota spa.
The cost of fitting out a spa in current conditions (including franchise fees, stock, computer equipment and software, licenses, furniture, cabinetry, plumbing equipment, towels, blankets, washer / dryers, internal and external signage, marketing collateral, fixtures, fittings, uniforms and funds for working capital) could be between $350,000 and $450,000.
This varies with every spa and at what time of the year the spa actually opens. We usually recommend that
a new business commence trading with working capital of not less than $40,000.
On average the split of income is currently 48% from treatments, 36% from gift vouchers and 16% from product sales.
Your Business Development Manager will visit your spa several times a year to assist you meet your business plan and budget goals and to ensure that you are meeting endota standards regarding Quality Assurance. These visits may look at treatment service standards, training, marketing, retail sales and productivity.
Each business owner is required to attend our endota spa Introduction and endota spa Education courses. We will also arrange a four day in-spa training period prior to and on commencing trading.
This seeks to cover all practical aspect of endota spa operations, gift vouchers and the point of sale system.
Our endota spa training schools also offer refresher courses for product education and retail sales.
In our experience, especially during the first 12 months of establishing a new spa, the most successful franchises
will be run by the franchisee. Fully committing to the business from a complete understanding of the
business and the community in which you operate. Whilst some established business owners do not work fulltime
in spa, they remain committed and it is important to us that you are determined to pursue an active role in
