Botox & Fillers  - A full medical consultation, free of charge, prior to any treatment will be carried out by our Nurse (Natalie). Within the consultation Natalie will take a detailed medical history and discuss your concerns and needs.  This ensures that you are medically able to have a treatment as some medical conditions/medications would contraindicate an aesthetic treatment. If you decide to go ahead with treatment Natalie will  prescribe the treatment and will offer you an appointment. Any risks with cosmetic treatments will be discussed with you at

your consultation so that you can make a fully informed decision whether to go ahead with treatment.

 

Hair Removal - Using the most advanced equipment. Our hair removal machine works on fair skin types to darker skin types (1-5 on the Fitzpatrick scale).

You can expect the treatment to be carried out by a highly trained professional, who will use specialist equipment to treat specified areas. Sensitive skin types can also feel silky smooth with significantly reduced hair growth.

Hair removal therapy targets the hair in its active growing cycle, known as the ‘anagen’ stage. Not all your hairs will be in the anagen stage at the same time, so although all hairs in a specific area are treated and most will fall away in one session, not all the follicles will be successfully targeted and killed completely. This means for the best results you will need a course of four to six treatment sessions, spaced four weeks apart. 90% of treatments only take two to four sessions before the hair growth completely stops. The treatment is mildly uncomfortable but there is no need for anaesthesia. Most patients describe a mild sensation while the treatment is being carried out. We provide a full case assessment, where we will test patch your skin before any initial treatment takes place.

 

 

 

 

Vascular related pigmentation - this would include broken capillaries, spider veins, broken veins, rosacea.

We can provide a solution to facial problems such as red flushing (Rosacea), thread veins and red spots in just a few quick and easy treatments.

The light energy is applied to the skin where it is readily absorbed by the blood vessels, heating them to a point where they are destroyed. Following treatment, the vessels quickly clear as they are reabsorbed by the body, leaving little or no trace of the original lesion.

We treat most red skin lesions, including facial thread veins, rosacea, spider naevi (spider veins), and port wine stains, can be treated very successfully. Depending on the lesions, leg vessels can also respond well to treatment.

A full consultation will happen before any treatment is carried out and a patch test required.

This treatment is mildly uncomfortable, some say pain free.

Procedures typically take from twenty to forty minutes, depending on the type and size of the lesion.

Usually three to five treatments are needed for optimum results, though small lesions may clear in just a single session. Repeat treatments are spaced every four to six weeks.

Melanin related pigmentation - this would include freckles, age-spots, liver-spots and sun damage.  Melanin is the pigment that naturally occurs in skin, the substance that reacts to UV exposure and gives us a sun tan!  Unlike vascular melanin is always static so conditions anywhere on the body can be treated.

Pigmented skin such as age spots or freckles can be successfully lightened and removed safely by our practitioners. Our treatments are non-invasive, suitable for both the face and body and will result in a more even skin tone.

Fast, effective and safe, the most advanced equipment we use releases short pulses of filtered light that is readily absorbed by the high concentration of melanin found within freckles, sun spots or liver spots. The rapid absorption of light energy heats the melanin and causes the immediate breakdown of the melanin-rich cells.

Anti-ageing / collagen enrichment - this would largely be on the face as the depth of penetration of light energy into skin tissue is shallow so it’s only effective where the skin is thin.  The controlled thermal trauma is caused due to the light output of the device creating a reaction known as ‘neo-collagenases’.  It is basically the process of causing existing collagen to contract and tricking the body into replacing it with more collagen.

Skin Rejuvenation - offer a solution for all the visible signs of ageing caused by sun damage, such as brown spots(pigmentation), redness (thread veins) and uneven skin texture, lines and wrinkles.

Short pulses of light are released and target discolouration (brown and red lesions) to create a more youthful, even complexion. In addition, this results in the stimulation of the fibroblast cells, leading to increased production of new collagen and elastin. This improves the texture of the skin, evening out lumps and bumps whilst reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

A full consultation will need to take place before any treatment is carried out.

Treatment can be mildly uncomfortable but no anaesthesia is required.

Procedures are carried out every two to three weeks and six treatments are recommended for the best results.

Thereafter, top-up sessions are performed as required, but typically once or twice a year.

Acne therapy - a non-invasive way to clear active acne that will kill the bacterial element of the acne without spreading the condition to surrounding skin tissue.  Mainly used on the face and back it’s very fast to clear up the immediate problem - although it will not alter any underlying issue that may be causing the presentation of acne in the first place - i.e. hormonal levels in an individual.

Here at Skin Therapy Clinic, we aim to treat the root cause of the problem by targeting the bacteria that actually causes the infection. This non-invasive, pain free acne treatment is suitable for the vast majority of skin types.

This treatment has been described as the most advanced treatment for acne in decades.

Cryo Bottom Lift.

No more squats! With fast results the Bottom Lift is to difficult to resist.

Cryotherapy for hair - this is a procedure which is used to improve hair condition, hair loss and enhance its growth.

The cold awakens dormant hair follicles which leads to rapid hair growth. As a result of this therapy, blood circulation enhances all metabolic processes, activates tissue nutrition, and it helps strengthen the roots.

Cryotherapy for hair when combined with a head massage has great therapeutic activity and excellent cosmetic effect. Under nitrogen influence, production of fat on scalp is decreased and as a consequence hair greasiness is reduced, scalp gets slightly dryer plus dandruff disappears. This naturally affects the condition of the hair; hair becomes smoother, shinier, elastic and hair loss stop.
