The upgraded and highly effective SHR Laser Hair Removal System represents a massive step forward in laser hair removal technology and we are one of the first clinics in the area to offer this advanced, pain-free method of permanent hair removal.
So what is SHR? (Super Hair Removal) with In-Motion Technology?
It's not like traditional IPL hair removal - it's faster, more efficient and produces better results. Using a patented diode laser technology, SHR permanently destroys hair follicles by using low fluence, repetitive light pulses, targeting the susceptible hair follicles.
Compared to IPL and laser light-based hair removal systems, which fire around 2-4 high powered shots into each hair follicle, the SHR fires a minimum of 20-30 shots into each follicle. This can be described as the difference between the speed of an automatic machine gun using SHR, to a single rifle shot using traditional IPL.
This new technology progressively heats the deeper layers of the skin where the hair follicle is growing, while keeping the skin surface cool using Crystal Contact cooling.
The In-Motion technology means that the whole area is covered as the applicator 'sweeps' over the treated area several times, ensuring that nothing is missed, unlike traditional IPL treatments. The applicator stays in constant contact with the skin rather than lifting off after every flash, which means faster and more accurate treatments.
Using a specific treatment head on our Laser machine, we can successfully treat facial red veins, thread veins on face and legs, redness, acne and acne rosacea.
Facial red veins and broken capillaries can be unsightly and difficult to cover with makeup. Removing them is now much easier thanks to the latest technology.
How does it work?
The combination of light and heat emitted by our Laser targets the small visible vessels on the face, causing them to coagulate. This is a safe process and does not disturb surrounding tissue or disrupt the skin in any way. They eventually break down and will disappear over a period of around 6-8 weeks.
Is it painful?
A slight stinging sensation can sometimes be felt, but this is minimised by the use of cooling gel during the treatment and application of skin soothing products afterwards.
How many treatments are needed?
This depends on the size of the treated area, and how severe the problem is. Typically 3-6 treatments are required to achieve optimum results.
We can also successfully treat acne, acne rosacea and facial redness with our Laser/Light system. The light assists in reducing inflammation and
eliminating bacteria on the skin that can lead to spots, bringing the condition under control.
How many treatments are needed?
3-6 treatments are recommended at 2-3 week intervals.
Pigmentation or brown spots appear as a result of sun damage and can also be triggered by hormonal changes, such as pregnancy.
There are no creams or lotions that will completely remove these pigmentation marks, and they can be difficult to treat. Clinical
research has shown that light-based therapies offer the best treatment method for reducing pigmentation and brown spots.
How does it work?
The light is absorbed by a substance called melanin, which controls skin colour and hair colour. When too much melanin is produced, usually as a result of sun damage, but also as a result of medication or pregnancy, brown spots appear in the skin and can look unsightly and be difficult to conceal with makeup. The laser light is absorbed by these pigmented structures, whilst the surrounding skin is left undisturbed. Once the light has been absorbed by the pigmented areas, a breakdown process begins which can take some weeks to complete.
Are there any side effects?
The pigmented areas can become darker following the treatment because of the amount of light they have absorbed. Eventually they will begin to break down and the pigment will disperse. We always apply a high factor sunscreen following treatment, and recommend that an SPF is worn every day. We work with specific skin products that will help in the reduction and prevention of brown marks and pigmentation. Avoiding prolonged periods of sun exposure will also ensure that the treatment is successful.
How many treatments are needed?
3-6 treatments, repeated at 2-3 week intervals for best results.
Skin ages due to internal and external factors. We can influence internal factors a little more easily than external by eating well and staying hydrated.
Supporting our skins with good quality skincare that contains antioxidants, and adopting a healthy lifestyle - avoiding cigarettes, excessive alcohol and
too much sugary and starchy food - will all help your skin to look its best.
External factors however are harder to control - UV radiation (sun exposure) pollution, stress and the hectic pace of life all cause damage to skin cells, leading to the breakdown of healthy collagen and elastin, which keeps skin looking firm and healthy.
Light based therapy can help to reverse the damage by stimulating the cells that produce collagen in a positive way, resulting in more luminous, healthy skin.
A reduction in fine lines and wrinkles will be noticed following a course of light therapy treatments for skin rejuvenation.
How many treatments are required?
3-6 treatments taken at 2-3 week intervals.
Does it hurt?
There is a warming sensation felt on the skin. A cooling gel is applied for comfort during the treatment, and a post-treatment application of appropriate skincare and SPF. The skin recovers very quickly post treatment and a normal lifestyle can be resumed, although we advise avoiding prolonged sun exposure during the course of treatments, and some other skin treatments, such as microdermabrasion and skin peels.
ThermaVein® is a clinically proven red vein removal system that seals the thread vein walls safely through
a process called thermocoagulation. Vessels collapse immediately as the treatment is applied. It's a totally safe,
clinically proven method of vein removal that is used by doctors and aesthetic clinics worldwide.
How Does The Treatment Feel?
A small probe the width of a human hair is applied along the vessel, just touching but not breaking the skin. A short burst of radio frequency heat travels down the probe and permanently seals the red vein. Most people describe the sensation as similar to plucking out a hair. I had my nose veins treated two weeks ago, and it wasn't painful.
What Are The Results/After Effects?
Immediate disappearance of the vessel. Some redness or scabbing can happen afterwards, and the effects of the treatment go on working for some days following the treatment as the vessel is completely re-absorbed by the body.
The A-Lift is a revolutionary skin health treatment proven to fight the signs of ageing. As we get older, our cell's metabolism slows.
When this starts (from mid-twenties onwards) the structure of the skin and underlying tissue deteriorates. It becomes less hydrated,
and there is a reduction in functionality resulting in reduced collagen and elastin - the 'scaffolding' of facial tissue. These factors
are manifested visually in sagging, thinner, loosened and wrinkled skin, which is less capable of protecting itself.
Unlike other devices the A-Lift machine incorporates a unique combination of micro-current and nano-current technology to combat the signs of ageing at a cellular level. The A-Lift is capable of self-regulating the current output every 16th of a second. This enables the device to deliver the correct dosage of current to the skin - literally moment by moment. A-lift's ground breaking technology gives you the most precise and efficient treatment - it's truly tailored to you.
Express Lift 30 minutes; Anti-Ageing 60 minutes; Red Carpet Facial 90 minutes.
How many treatments?
8 - 10 Anti-Ageing Treatments.
How long do the results last?
Up to 6 months following a full course.
Risks and side effects
Minimal risks; side effects can include slight redness and heat.
How is the A-Lift different from other facial lifting treatments?
A-Lift is based on the latest nano-current technology and is the only machine in the world that automatically monitors, reprograms and adjusts its output frequency 16 times a second to mimic your unique frequency.
I've had micro-current treatments before, is A-Lift the same?
Micro-current technology gives a more immediate muscle lifting effect like your body gets from the gym. Over a course of treatments the muscles will continue to tone up, giving a continued lifting effect. However, consider what happens to your body if you stop exercising at the gym regularly! Because nano-current works at a cellular level, we are not toning the muscles through exercise. By re-energising cells to act in a more youthful way, muscle tone and skin condition are transformed back to their former glory.
What can I expect during an A-Lift treatment?
You can expect to totally relax! Because the A-Lift uses nano-current technology, there is very little if any sensation felt.
Are there any side effects?
Slight redness following treatment
Contagious skin conditions (impetigo, herpes simplex, tinea, conjunctivitis and scabies) Epilepsy Pregnancy Undergoing medical treatment Pacemaker Metal plates or pins Recent scar tissue Undiagnosed lumps or swellings Lupus Rosacea Phlebitis Cancerous lesions Active acne, rashes or hives
A treatment with the Cosmetic Corrector is the gentle alternative to skin tightening surgery. The combination of plasma and NF+ technology, currently makes the plasma pen unique, world-wide. This is an especially gentle and low-pain procedure which achieves incredible, permanent results – immediately. Additionally, due to continued tightening after the treatment, we see further vast improvements, with plasma skin tightening.
The ACCOR Cosmetic Corrector was the first Plasma pen to utilise a Low frequency delivery of the plasma arc.
This enables the treatment imprint to be wider, and shallower than traditional thermal only devices.
The benefits of which are a greater tightening effect allowing for better results, a quicker healing process and less down time.
The 'lighter' alternative
I have recently completed my Masterclass training on the latest technique for Plasma application and I believe that this new 'lighter' approach to treating lines, pigmentation and loose skin is a real breakthrough for Plasma treatments, and eliminates the need for 'dry healing' - you can resume your normal skin routines and lifestyles the next day - you can even apply makeup the following day - a real bonus for those of us with busy lives.
No waiting - For the dark dots to fall off
The biggest challenge that most clients who have had the original Plasma Dot treatment face is the restriction on covering up the dots, keeping them dry, and waiting for them to fall off. The Plasma Shower technique eliminates these restrictions. The technique involves applying the Plasma in a 'shower', simply grazing the skin in a quick motion. Lines and wrinkles can be individually targeted, as well as general skin lifting and tightening in all areas such as eyelids, under eyes, jawline and neck. All that is required following the treatment is an application of a sterile cocktail of hyaluronic acid and vitamins 3 times for the first day, then back to normal the day after.
The results? Just as good
Trials of the technique on several people, both female and male, concluded that the lifting, tightening and line reduction was exceptional, and just as good as the Plasma dots.
The Skin Needling System FUSION MESO PEN treatment is a highly effective electronic device coupled with a bespoke MESOTHERAPY cocktail
that takes skin needling to the next level.
What is Fusion Meso Pen Needling?
Mesotherapy is a treatment that introduces microscopic quantities of products into the skin to treat a variety of conditions. Growth factors, biomimetic peptides, vitamins, minerals and amino acids are a selection of products that are commonly used. All medications are selected for the specific condition being treated including a natural stimulation of collagen when piercing the dermis.
Meso Pen Medical Skin Needling - Collagen Stimulation Therapy
This non-invasive treatment for the face and body is racing ahead of more invasive, surgical procedures such as fractional laser re-surfacing of the skin, as it produces the same dramatic results without the risks or down-time.
The treatment involves the use of a medical needling device, the Meso Pen. It is a small pen-like instrument containing tiny sterile needles, which
automatically pierce the skin at safe levels, to create thousands of microscopic channels in the lower levels of the skin. This method is clinically proven and safe, and stimulates natural and healthy collagen production in your skin, resulting in younger, firmer skin with reduced lines and wrinkles.
We can target deeper lines and wrinkles with our mono (single) needle cartridge, to make significant changes to frown lines, crow's feet, nose-lip lines, and lines above the lip. The Meso Pen is a motorised, vibrating instrument, which ensures comfort and minimal trauma to the skin, whilst producing noticeable results right from your very first treatment. Far more advanced than the old-fashioned roller system, which has a fixed needle length, the Meso Pen allows us to adjust the needle length for very accurate treatments.
For your comfort, a topical anaesthetic cream is applied to your skin prior to the treatment. There will be some redness and possibly tightness and
dryness following your treatment. This will settle within 24 hours of treatment, and can be covered with mineral makeup to minimise redness.
You will be provided with an aftercare product to apply for 1-2 days following your treatment. You can return to normal activities after 48 hours. For best results, a course of 3 - 6 treatments is recommended, depending on skin condition. A bespoke Mesotherapy Cocktail will be applied as part of each Meso treatment for optimal results.

Microdermabrasion is the perfect way to freshen skin and is the treatment of choice for many TV personalities and A List celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow.
It can help to repair damage caused by sun and the effects of ageing. This miracle treatment is effective in reducing fine lines, crowís feet, age spots and acne scars.
The process stimulates the production of new skin cells and collagen revealing fresher, softer skin with a more even texture to the surface.
Microdermabrasion is one of the fastest growing trends for skin refreshing and renewal. And because there's no down-time or recovery required, it's a 'fast track' way to get your skin looking polished and radiant.
Our preferred method is to use a diamond tipped wand. A hand piece is used to gently polish the skin to give a younger fresher surface. We tend to combine it with an intensive vitamin infusion for a more tailored treatment,adding a relaxing element.

"1000 mg of Vitamin C taken orally before and after the procedure, combined with topical vitamin C, maximises collagen production"
Dr Jacques Otto, Aesthetic Physician.
Meso (from the Greek mesos, "middle") and therapy (from the Greek therapeia "to treat medically") is the practice of using a combination of target-specific
micro-injections into the second layer of the skin in order to deliver healing or corrective treatment.
The French Academy of Medicine recognised mesotherapy as a Speciality of Medicine in 1987.
Mesotherapy has been widely used for aesthetic purposes as an alternative or complimentary to traditional non-surgical cosmetic treatments such as dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxing injections.
When Can Mesotherapy Be Used?
Mesotherapy is an excellent preventative and corrective treatment for skin ageing as it provides:
Please note that, depending on the problem and the area to be treated, a cycle of 3-6 treatments may be required for great results.
Mesotherapy can be combined with other non surgical treatments in one session.
All treatment options will be discussed at your first consultation.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Mesotherapy is a safe way to achieve long-lasting and natural-looking results with minimal downtime. Following the treatment, there may be some redness, swelling, bruising, tenderness and firmness around the injection sites. This will quickly disappear, usually within 1-2 days of treatment.
How Do I Maintain My Results? We recommend the use of skin care products that contain Vitamin A, peptides, retinoids and alpha hydroxy acids to support and increase collagen formation and skin rejuvenation.
