Want a fresher younger look?
The simple passage of time together with the pleasures and stresses of life tends to cause our skin to appear older. Signs of aging are typically most visible on a persons face. Whilst treatment creams, regular facials or even surgery exists to improve facial flaws we are always looking for dramatic improvements with low risk and no ‘downtime’.
Finally there is an answer – Laser Facial, also called Photo Skin Rejuvenation treatment. Is a new laser technology that can treat fine lines, wrinkles, blood vessels, acne scars and large pores.
Laser / IPL Skin Rejuvenation treatment is non-invasive treatment used to erase skin damage without disruption to the skin’s surface.
The Skin Rejuvenation treatment is ideal for clients who find they have skin discolouration, sun damage, age spots, mottled pigmentation, dull complexions, diffused redness (high colour) and the symptoms of rosacea and large pores. The Laser / IPL Skin Rejuvenation treatment stimulates collagen production in the dermis, which in turn produces an anti aging effect on the treatment area. Clients notice their skin looks smoother and younger, fine lines and wrinkles appear reduced and make up goes on more evenly.
The Skin Rejuvenation treatment with Laser / IPL is a major advantage for those clients who want great results without long recovery times. The most common area for treatment is the face, however the treatment can be successfully used on the neck chest and hands as these areas are regularly exposed to the sun, through day to day activities A full consultation and patch test is carried out prior to treatment to establish eligibility of the client.
The treatment times averages approximately 45 minutes for face and chest, 30 minutes for face and 15 minutes for hands, treatments should be performed once every 3-6 weeks.
Clients will experience a warm sensation whilst the treatment is in progress. Once the treatment is completed the sensation stops. A mild erythema /redness is normalimmediately after treatment and subsides quickly when treating areas of pigmentation it would be normal for the client to experience the pigment darkening over the nextfew days after treatment. We recommend that sun beds and sun bathing are avoided for the next 4 weeks and all heat treatments and perfumed products are avoided for24-48 hours.
Results can be noticed after just one treatment however to achieve the best results a course of six treatments is recommended. Treatments should be carried out at monthly intervals.

Why Laser Hair Removal?
Are you tired of shaving and waxing? Laser hair removal gives you smooth skin free from the embarrassment of unwanted hair. Laser hair removal is a fast and easy procedure that removes unwanted hair in a flash. It is less painful than many other hair removal processes. The specialised intense light pulsates targeting the individual hair follicles without causing damage to your skin.
Understanding how Laser Hair Removal works.
Laser hair removal uses a highly concentrated beam of light that is directed at the individual hair follicles. The pigment, or the colour found in the hair, absorbs this light, which in turn damages the hair follicle so that it will no longer grow.
Your practitioner will specify the type and intensity of laser light used to treat your specific hair removal needs. These needs may include the thickness and colour of hair and the colour of your skin.
Who can receive Laser Hair Removal and which body areas can be treated?

The usual treatment areas include the legs, armpits upper lip, chin, and the bikini line. However, other areas can be treated, you can discuss your treatment options during your initial consultation.
What do I need to do before a laser treatment?
Patients are advised to refrain form tanning or sun exposure prior to a laser hair removal treatment. A tan can increase the possibility of adverse reactions to the laser – including blistering or skin discoloration. The laser used for this process is only effective when used on short, visible hair, so it is advised that you shave two to three days prior to your treatment session. Allowing some visible stubble will help to provide a better target so you should also avoid plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for a minimum of three weeks before a treatment.
When you arrive for you initial consultation it is important to discuss your medical history, any concerns you may have, and what areas of the body you wish to have treated. It is important to have a clear understanding of the treatment process so that you may be completely satisfied.

You may notice a stinging sensation as the laser is applied to the treatment area. Many patients describe this sensation as being similar to a rubber band snapping on the skin. During the treatment process you may also notice the smell of singed hair, this is completely normal it occurs as the hair absorbs the light. Throughout your treatment session your practitioner will use a specially designed wand to help keep the area cool and keep you as comfortable as possible. The length of the session depends on the size of the area being treated.
What should I expect following a treatment session?
Immediately following a session you may notice redness or swelling for a few hours. Some patients experience stinging, this can last up to 48 hours following treatment. For some patients a small amount of crusting can be found which can be easily treated with the application of petroleum jelly, or Vaseline. There is no recovery time, medications, or bandages needed.
