What is Sun Damage/Pigmentation?
Pigmentation of the skin occurs when patches of skin turn darker in colour. It’s caused by an over production of melanin on the surface of the skin. It’s a common skin condition which can be treated with a number of methods.
Normal Lighting UV Skin Scanning Technology
We offer a free skin consultation for every client prior to any treatments. You will be seen by one of our expert practitioners who have been trained in laser, skin and body treatments. Skin consultations are conducted in complete confidence and practitioners are able to answer any questions or concerns you may have. During the consultation, a detailed assessment will be carried out (along with a patch test where required) and a personal skincare programme will be devised to suit requirements. The consultation will take approximately 30 minutes.
Improve the texture and smoothness of your skin using highly effective skin peels, tailored to your specific requirements on a level that suits you, from mild to more advanced. By removing dull, dead cells from the skin surface, open pores, blemishes and fine lines are all immediately reduced.
Our skin peels use highly active ingredients to achieve lasting results such as Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) and Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHAs). These help to rehydrate the skin and calm the inflammation.
Laser/IPL skin rejuvenation
Laser and IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is used to target imperfections in the skin from hyperpigmentation to acne. IPL helps to promote collagen production, healing and aid hydration. Your skin will appear redefined, refreshed and more evenly toned with the use of IPL. By targeting dark areas of pigmentation this treatment safely breaks down the excess melanin, allowing it to shed naturally. Skin peels can manage melanin production and even skin tone.
