There are a variety of laser treatments available for all skin types and skin conditions. Each laser treatment targets different issues and can significantly improve the appearance and texture of the skin.

We offer laser treatments that focus on reducing fine lines and wrinkles, removing unwanted body hair, correcting skin discolouration, improving the appearance of scars and stretchmarks and treating rosacea.

We’ve put together a selection of our most popular laser skin care treatments to give you an idea on which laser treatment could be best for you.

Active FX Laser Treatment

The Active FX laser treatment is used to tighten skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It works by penetrating fractions of the skin and causing minor damage to its surface. Due to the minor damage, the body accelerates its natural production of collagen which then heals and plumps the skin.

Due to the fact only minor areas of the skin are damaged, healing time is much quicker than other laser treatments. Further benefits include immediate tightening of the skin, improved skin tone and texture and a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Laser Treatment

This treatment focuses on reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles surrounding the eyes and lips. IPL can also be used to treat uneven skin tones and scars. This creates clearer and smoother skin and a more youthful appearance.

Minimal downtime is needed to recover and virtually no pain is experienced during treatment.

Icon Aesthetic System Laser Treatment

The Icon Aesthetic System is a piece of technology that allows several different skin problems to be treated. It works by penetrating the deeper layer of skin and is renowned for being a fantastic treatment to reduce the appearance of stretchmarks, acne and surgical scars.

Smoother skin, a reduction in the visibility of stretchmarks and scars and long lasting results are just some of the many benefits associated with having this laser treatment.

Apogee Elite Cynosure Laser Treatment

This treatment is recommended for people that want to remove unwanted body hair. It works by combining two separate lasers that emit pulses of energy into the hair follicles and destroys them.

Although no downtime is needed to recover from this treatment, in most cases, several treatments are needed in order to benefit from complete results.

XTRAC Excimer Laser Treatment

As one of the best treatments for psoriasis, the XTRAC Excimer Laser is one of our most popular procedures. It concentrates ultraviolet B-light on the affected areas of the skin which breaks down the cells causing the psoriasis.

This treatment only takes a few minutes to complete and very little pain and discomfort is experienced during the session. The surrounding areas of healthy skin aren’t affect so only a few treatments are needed to see full results.
