Hair Removal

Intense Pulsed Light, or IPL is one of our most popular treatments, providing long-term hair reduction and resulting in smooth and silky skin on all parts of the body. It's suitable for small specific areas such as chin, upper lip and cheeks and also larger expanses of hair such as arms, legs underarms and back. It's also recommended for areas that can be more sensitive such as ears, nose, chest and bikini line.

Our highly trained practitioners will always carry out a test patch on your skin to ensure you are suitable for the treatment. They will never begin IPL hair removal without this important safety step.

Some people worry that it might be painful, but actually, it's only mild discomfort during the treatment (like being flicked with an elastic band). Immediately after treatment, the area will be pink but there is no downtime.

A course of treatments should be carried out at four to six weekly intervals. The number of treatments needed will vary between patients, depending on skin colour, hair colour, area, and amount of hair you need to reduce.

The hair is usually significantly reduced after 6 treatments. IPL hair removal offers a permanent reduction in hair growth and any hair that does grow back tends to be finer, lighter, and softer.

Pigment Removal

Sunspots, liver spots and freckles are all examples of unwanted pigmentation that affects lots of us and are often associated with skin ageing, or overexposure to the sun (or sunbeds!).

The good news is that these freckling, pigment and age spot areas can be effectively removed or lightened with Intense Pulse Light (IPL) treatments.

The Intense Pulse Light (IPL) system releases short pulses of filtered light which is readily absorbed by the high concentration of pigment (melanin) found within freckles, sun spots or liver spots. This light energy heats the melanin causing it to dissipate.


Rosacea & Facial Redness

Rosacea is a common skin condition which most often appears between the ages of 30 and 60 and is usually visible on the cheeks, forehead, chin and nose. It tends to affect more women than men, but in men it can be more severe. People with rosacea often find they suffer from facial thread veins as the skin is red and flushed. Red veins and red flushing can be a cause of real concern and distress.

There are a variety of triggers for rosacea including alcohol, stress, hot drinks, spicy foods, and sun exposure. Although there is no cure for rosacea, we can keep the symptoms under control and provide long-lasting results.
