Celebrating 18 Years of Laser Treatment

04/09/2017

 

 

Celebrating our expertise and love for all things laser! 

If you have ever considered any Laser based treatments then no doubt your first concern will be to make sure the practitioner carrying out the treatment is fully qualified and experienced to do the treatment.

Too many clinics have taken short cuts, use inferior technology and machines, don't understand their patients' concerns, use beauty therapists rather than Aestheticians who educated in skin and don't offer in depth consultations to set realistic expectations of treatment.

At Skin Health Spa, with over a million Laser treatments, complex skin consultations and over 18 years in the business under our belt, we know a good aesthetician when we see one!

All our Laser technicians are all trained with Cynsoure - A world leading manufacturer of light-based aesthetic and medical treatment systems and FDA approved.

Skin Health Spa has been at the forefront of skin treatments since 1999. Our expertise in the field of non-invasive advanced skin and laser treatments has made us one of the UK’s leaders in aesthetic treatments. Our experienced doctors, nurses and aestheticians have performed over 1 million treatments and are trained to provide each client with professional and trusted advice.We specialise in hair reduction with state of the art Lasers, Acne and Acne Scarring treatments, Skin Rejuvenation, Muscle Relaxing Injections and Dermal Fillers along with pharmaceutical grade skin peels and Microneedling amongst many other treatments.

We always offer each and everyone of our clients a complimentary consultation and patch test - where we introduce the Aesthetician and the Laser machine. We explain how it works, the do's and don'ts and address any concerns you may have about ungoing treatment. If the client is happy to go ahead at this point we would carry out a patch test to test and determine the optimum settings for your skin and hair type to ensure we get the best results. This will show us how your skin will react to the laser. We strive to make sure before any client leaves the initial consultation they have a full understanding of the treatment and outcomes so they feel confident and are making an informed decision about treatment.

What can we do with our Lasers I hear you say?

Laser Hair Removal

Our most popular Laser treatment with both men and women. We can permanently reduce hair growth by up to 95% and you can say good bye to waxing or shaving forever. It can also help with excess hormonal hair growth from PCOS and the menopause. Our Cynsoure machine has adjustable wavelengths so enables us to treat every skin type safely and help to target lighter hair types.

Why laser over IPL? We always like to describe an IPL a bit like a scattered ray of light, this makes it less powerful, whereas Laser is a concentrated direct and solid beam of light meaning energy is extremely focused rather than diffused making it very precise resulting in more powerful and accurate results

Advantages of Laser Hair Removal:

  • Up to 95% permanent reduction in unwanted hair
  • A great solution in-grown hairs
  • A long-lasting solution that will save time
  • Cost effective in compared to other short-term hair removal options
  • Grid system allows precise targeting of hairs

We can treat the whole body withCynosure Elite+™ Lasers but popular areas include: 

  • Face
  • Under arms
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Pubic region
  • Legs (thighs and lower legs)

 

 

 

Thread Vein Removal

Thread veins, also referred to as spider veins, are tiny damaged veins or broken capillaries just below the skin surface. Long-term sun exposure, pregnancy, rosacea, alcohol, smoking and standing for long periods of time can all attribute to broken thread or spider veins. They can appear anywhere on the body but are most common on the face and legs. The most effective proven treatment for thread veins is Laser, which breaks down unwanted veins using brief pulses of laser light. The laser targets only the unwanted veins, leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. A visible reduction in unwanted veins by as much as 75 per cent can be seen from one to three treatments and the results are permanent. 

The procedure uses an Nd:YAG Laser system that focuses a beam of laser light energy toward the vein. When the laser passes through the skin it heats the vein, coagulates the blood inside the vessel and causes it to collapse. The body’s natural waste process then carries away all the broken down blood vessels. Advancements in Laser technologies allow delivery of a precise dosage of energy to each blood vessel without injuring to the skin.

On average takes 1-3 treatments.

 

 

Skin Pigmentation Treatments

Skin pigmentation can take the form of freckles, age spots or larger patches of discoloured skin. The most common form is hyperpigmentation, which is the excess production of the skin pigment melanin. It appears as localised patches, which are darker than the surrounding skin and the patches are typically non-raised. As the hyperpigmentation occurs beneath the top layer of skin. Pigmentation can be caused by excess sun exposure, injury, post-inflammation/acne or hormonal changes. Laser treatment can help to reduce the appearance of many forms of pigmentation.

Laser and IPL can improve the appearance of:

  • Darker patches
  • Freckles
  • Age Spots / Lentigines 
  • Sun spots
  • Some brown birthmarks
  • Marks left from scars

 

Emerge Fractional Laser 

The perfect laser facial to improve your skin’s overall tone and texture while diminishing any pigment problems, wrinkles, or other skin irregularities. 

Fractional Laser treatment has been proven to rejuvenate skin using laser micro-beams. It speeds up the skin’s natural rejuvenation process, helping the body break up old, damaged cells quickly, leaving undamaged tissue untreated. The body’s healing process then rebuilds the treated and damaged tissue with collagen and elastin, restoring skin for a healthier look. The laser uses a non-ablative technique to stimulate gradual skin tightening, which causes less skin damage than an ablative laser and requires less time for the body to heal. The Emerge™ Laser treatment can be used on various areas including face, décolletage, hands and legs, arms and stomach to treat stretch marks.

Emerge™ Laser treatments can improve the appearance of:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Pigmentation and sun damage
  • Blotchiness
  • Stretch Marks
  • Scars
  • Large Pores
