Pigmentation removal/reduction

Using laser IPL, pigmentation therapy is the treatment of skin that has an uneven skin tone due to age spots, sun spots and hyper pigmentation.  This treatment fades and removes the excess pigmentation restoring the skin to an even clearer tone.  This treatment will also refresh the complexion as well as giving a collagen boost within the skin.

The intense pulsed light emits light waves which are absorbed by the melanin and haemoglobin in the skin which causes the pigment to fragment. These pigment fragments are then broken down naturally by the body making them less visible in appearance.

 

Thread Vein Reduction

Lasers and IPL can be used to quickly and effectively remove thread veins non-invasively. It can take up to five sessions to fully treat unwanted veins.

Thread veins caused by dilated and enlarged blood vessels can appear on the legs, body and face. Not to be confused with larger varicose veins thread veins which are lumpy and bulge out of the skin.

Also called ‘spider veins’, they can appear as a cluster with different branches coming out of a central point, like the legs of a spider, they are usually red, purple or blue in colour.

The laser is attracted to the haemoglobin in the blood, a heat reaction occurs and coagulates the blood and destroys the protein in the wall of the vessel, this then breaks down and is removed by your body’s natural lymph drainage system

Veins can appear slightly more prominent after treatment but there are no other associated side effects and you can return to normal activities immediately.
