Laser and Impulse Light Therapies
Acne Treatment – FDA Licenced Medical Laser
Acne is a disorder of the skin’s sebaceous oil glands which affect over 80 per cent of the population aged 14-30.
Active acne is characterised by frequent outbreaks of inflamed pustules caused by a bacterial infection. This bacterium aggravates the sebaceous oil glands leading to the overproduction of sebum which builds up under the skin.
A combination of light destroys the bacterial infection and infra red light reduces the inflammation of the sebaceous glands and limits their activity which can result in long term remission from acne.
This treatment is combined with our acne facial treatment.
I wandered in one day expecting a sales pitch, and instead I discovered a treasure trove! Such wonderful advice and care. You restored my face to me, and I will be sending up prayers of gratitude daily! Thank you so very much.”
IPL/Laser Hair Removal – FDA Licenced Medical Laser
By employing intense pulsed light and laser, this treatment destroys the hair roots to stop re-growth. This represents the only effective alternative to electrolysis for long term removal of hair.
Laser for Treatment of Onychomycosis (fungal infection in nails)
Onychomycosis is a fungal infection of the toenails. Dermatophytes are the fungi most commonly responsible for onychomycosis. You may suffer from onychomycosis if you have one or more of the following symptoms:
– Thickened nail
– Crumbly or brittle nail
– Nail distorted in shape or separated with no lustre or shine
– A white, yellow, or brown coloured nail, caused by debris build-up
Our laser therapy kills fungus that lives in and under the toenail. The laser light passes through the nail without causing damage to it or the surrounding skin and promises clear looking nails with simple, painless treatments so you can enjoy healthy, beautiful feet again.
The Laser is a proven cold low-level laser therapy that:
– Kills toenail fungus in just four painless 12-minute treatments
– Treats onychomycosis with no pain, no recovery time, and no side effects
– Allows clear healthy nails to grow [/one-half-first] [one-half]
Photo Rejuvenation – FDA Licensed Medical Laser
This is recommended for the treatment of sun damage, including patches of abnormal colour, rough skin texture, broken capillaries and fine lines. Additionally, photo therapy uses intense pulses of red light which when applied all over the face is used to stimulate the growth of new collagen and elastin fibres in the deeper layers of the skin which improves its firmness and overall texture. The procedure is quick and gives long term removal of visible signs of ageing. We combine this treatment with anti-ageing facials.
Pigmentation Removal – FDA Licensed Medical Laser
This treatment can be performed on hands, face and body and removes freckles.
As we age, sun exposure can lead to the development of small patches of permanent darker skin on the face, neck and the back of the hands. Intense pulsed light treatment removes pigmentation by stimulating renewal of the upper layers of the skin from underneath, giving an effective and non-invasive treatment.
Telangiectasia and Spider Naevus – FDA Licensed Medical Laser
These treatments are fast, allowing the whole area or multiple areas to be treated at each monthly session. Treatment with impulse light and laser is unique as it destroys unsightly blood vessels by sending very short pulses of light into the skin destroying the vein using heat. The vessels shrink over the following weeks and are re-absorbed by the body. [/one-half]
