Thread Vein Removal
Reduce your thread veins and high colour with the IPL treatment. The light is attracted to your Haemoglobin within your blood causing a heat reaction which cauterises the capillaries and breaks down the wall of the vessel.
Treat your pigment and age spots with the IPL system. The light is attracted to the melanin in the pigment, heats it and brings the pigment up to the surface, your skin will then naturally shed those skin cells with in the next two week leaving the pigment lighter and giving you a more even skin tone.
All of the above treatments require a Consultation and Patch test, which must be carried out 24 hours before your first session.
How does acne impacts all ages?
Acne is undoubtedly one of the most common disorders to be treated by dermatologists.
As a skin care therapist we can really help with dealing with the condition. It is estimated that more than 90% of the world’s population is affected by acne at some point in their lives.
Although acne is more commonly associated with teenagers, it actually affects many in adult life on and off for many years. It maybe classed as a skin disorder but it has also been linked to both emotional and psychological problems, such as low self esteem and depression. It effects women and men of all ages and in adults can be really painful. Many causes can be linked to hormones, stress, diet, health and lifestyle and skin sensitivity. Using the wrong products can worsen the condition.
Depending on the severity, it may be advisable to seek professional medical guidance to ensure they receive the correct treatment for the seriousness of the problem. In the skincare salon, we can offer treatments to exfoliate, help remove excess sebum, calm the skin if inflamed and create a customised homecare routine. Using topical products to help boost exfoliation, stop the build up of dead skin cells and reduce the chance of scarring.
We have also found the use of our Intense Pulse Light has been extremely effective at helping to treat acne and reduce scarring by encouraging the production of the skins own collagen.
It is so rewarding to help someone improve their skin’s health and condition and make them feel more positive about them self.
