TATTOO REMOVAL

What is Wrinkle Reduction?


Wrinkle reduction is a treatment of the skin to give maximum collagen boosts in order to push out from the smallest lines on the face/body to even the deepest lying wrinkles.




How does it work?


The heat from the light is attracted to the melanin / oxy-haemoglobin in the blood. The heat reaction breaks down the melanin and coagulates the blood within the treatment area. This leaves the body through the lymphatic system (through the kidneys and out through urine) and leaves skin with a clearer complexion. The heat also created within this area makes the skin react as if it has had an injury, this causes blood and collagen to rush to the area improving the complexion. Any hair will need to be shaved from the area prior to the treatment, this can be done on the day of treatment at home or just before treatment at the studio.




Consultations – what do they involve?


Consultations will be carried out for every client for every treatment, without exception. This ensures the very best treatment is given and ensures clients are fully briefed on the procedure prior to starting. During consultations:

  • Consent forms will be completed.
  • The procedure will be fully explained with an opportunity to ask questions.
  • The skin type of the client will be defined.
  • Ensure that there has not been high sun exposure 30 days prior or planned for after each treatment as this can give a risk of burning, blistering or permanent skin discolouration. This includes sunbeds and fake tan treatments.
  • Medical history and medication will be checked and discussed.
  • If all the above is agreed, then a test patch will be carried out on the skin. A small section of the area will be lasered to ensure that there are no adverse reactions, the results will be monitored prior to leaving the studio.




Does it hurt?


Sensation does vary from client to client, but is usually described as a hot sensation and can feel like light sunburn after the treatment. Some redness can also be seen following the treatment which is a good indication that the treatment has worked.




How many sessions are needed?


On average 1-6 treatments are needed at 4 week intervals for the best results. Top up treatments could be needed in the future to maintain results.

ROSACEA, BIRTHMARK AND FRECKLE FADING/REMOVAL

How does it work?


The laser picks up the darker pigmentation in the skin and works to remove/reduce to match the rest of your skin tone.




Why is this the right choice for me?


This laser method is the only effective option for the reduction or removal of birthmarks, freckles and rosacea.




What type of areas can be removed?


This procedure can be carried out anywhere on the body, apart from very close to the eye due to the risk this poses to sight loss.




What can I expect from the treatment – how does it sound and feel?


  1. Primarily the area being lasered will be cleaned and shaved and the correct settings will be inputted into the machine.
  2. When the laser first hits the area it makes a loud cracking noise, a little bit like a Christmas cracker being pulled, this is due to the area absorbing the shockwave and is completely normal.
  3. When the laser has entered the skin you will see the area turn into small white gas bubbles, this is a sign the treatment has worked and will disappear within half an hour of the treatment finishing.
  4. Some bleeding may also occur, again this is completely normal and will cease within half an hour of the treatment finishing.
  5. Skin can also appear red or raised temporarily following treatment.
  6. To minimise discomfort the skin will be cooled down using an ice pack prior to treatment and can also be applied following treatment. A cooling aloe vera gel will also be applied after the treatment to soothe the skin.
  7. The treatment is often likened to an elastic band being pinged on the skin, or hot fat spitting on you when cooking. Everyone’s pain threshold is different, but every measure is taken to ensure maximum comfort with plenty of time being allowed for each treatment to ensure breaks can be taken if needed.




Consultations – what do they involve?

This ensures the very best treatment is given and ensures clients are fully briefed on the procedure prior to starting.

A small section of the area will be lasered to ensure that there are no adverse reactions, the results will be monitored prior to leaving the studio.




How long does there need to be between treatments?


Following the test patch, a full treatment can be carried out 48 hours after as long as no adverse effects have occurred. There will then need to be a minimum of 3 weeks between each treatment until the desired result is reached. Once the white bubbles fade and any bleeding subsides, the area will start to scab and heal and may be itchy. It is important that the area is not itched or picked as this can cause scarring. This will then heal and the skin will go back to looking and feeling like normal.




How many sessions will be needed?


This will differ between clients dependent on skin type and colouring. Once treatment has begun and the first session has healed an estimate can be given on how many sessions are needed for the desired result.




How long does the treatment take?


This varies depending on the size of the area. A square inch area can be covered within about a couple of minutes.

Will I have scarring after treatment?


As this is a medical treatment a risk of scarring is always possible, this would usually only happen if a client has a history of being prone to scar tissue (discussed in the consultation), or if aftercare is not properly followed, however scarring is not a usual or expected side effect of the treatment.

What is Wrinkle Reduction?


Wrinkle reduction is a treatment of the skin to give maximum collagen boosts in order to push out from the smallest lines on the face/body to even the deepest lying wrinkles.

On average 1-6 treatments are needed at 4 week intervals for the best results. Top up treatments could be needed in the future to maintain results.





 
 

THREAD VEIN REMOVAL / REDUCTION

What is Thread Vein Treatment and how does it work?


During the treatment of thread veins, the light is attracted to the target oxy-haemoglobin in the blood. As the light is absorbed by the blood in the vessels, a heat reaction is caused which coagulates the blood and destroys protein in the wall of the vessel. This vessel then breaks down and the debris is removed by the body’s natural waste disposal system.




Can anyone be treated?


Only clients with skin types 1-3 can be treated, the skin type will be determined in the consultation, but these skin types are lighter skin types and this is usually when thread veins are most prominent.




Consultations – what do they involve?


Consultations will be carried out for every client for every treatment, without exception. This ensures the very best treatment is given and ensures clients are fully briefed on the procedure prior to starting. During consultations:

  • Consent forms will be completed.
  • The procedure will be fully explained with an opportunity to ask questions.
  • The skin type of the client will be defined.
  • Ensure that there has not been high sun exposure 30 days prior or planned for after each treatment as this can give a risk of burning, blistering or permanent skin discolouration. This includes sunbeds and fake tan treatments.
  • Medical history and medication will be checked and discussed.
  • If all the above is agreed, then a test patch will be carried out on the skin. A small section of the area will be lasered to ensure that there are no adverse reactions, the results will be monitored prior to leaving the studio.




What should I expect during and after treatment?


Some redness will occur after the treatment and this will remain from a few hours up to a couple of days. A blurring of the vessel is often apparent after treatment which can be coupled with inflammation of the area. These are all signs of a successful treatment and nothing to be concerned about. Aloe vera gel will be applied straight after the treatment and the application of this can continue in the days following this by the client at home.




How many sessions are needed?


On average around 2-4 treatments are needed at 4 week intervals for the best results. Top up treatments may be needed in the future to maintain results.




Does it hurt?


The sensation varies client by client, but most clients describe the sensation as mild sunburn. A sharp pain during and tingling after the treatment is normal.
