Any form of skin concern can affect all or part of a person’s body image and the confidence they project. If you suffer from a skin condition such as thread veins, rosacea, sun spots, acne or fungal nail infections, we can help you with course of laser treatments. Our innovative lasers work by emitting a wavelength of high energy light, which when focused on a certain skin condition will create heat and destroy targeted cells without damaging tissue.
Often appearing in clustered areas on the face and body these are enlarged superficial vascular lesions which are common in men and women as a result of UV damage, ageing, alcohol consumption or genetic hereditary conditions. Appearing as red, purple or blue veins, they are usually present around the nose and cheeks and can often develop to become more visible as skin transparency increases.
Thought to be present among more than 45 million men and women aged 30-60 years old worldwide, this skin condition commonly affects the skin on the face and results in a red ‘blush’ which develops over time from intermittent appearance through to consistent. The condition can also produce spots, sore and sensitive skin and visibly prominent blood vessels which can lead to open pores and the eruption of pustules forming under the skin - similar to acne.
As acne is often caused by internal factors such as hormone imbalance, stress and allergies to food, when this regular treatment is combined with the right methods to combat the underlying problem acne can clear permanently.
We can treat 3 types of acne:
Fungal toenail infection
Onychomycosis or fungal nail infections are estimated to affect up to 30% of people in the UK across their lifetime, slowly developing to cause discoloured, thickened and misshapen nails on either the hands or feet which in turn can affect confidence and over time cause discomfort. Where fungal nail infections affect the toenails, this can even often lead to difficulty wearing certain styles of shoe which is where this often small condition can result in bigger and more severe consequences.
- Thickened nails
- Discoloured nail tips or beds (look out for yellowing or greening)
- Pain or discomfort when wearing certain styles of shoe
Known as lentigines on the medical circuit, the brownish spots can appear on your face and body, mainly due to overexposure to the sun as your body tries its hardest to fight UV rays that can damage healthy skin. Whilst the melanin pigment within your skin is responsible for absorbing sunlight, over time, repeat exposure to UV rays damages your skin and lowers your ability to produce the melanin pigment. Combined with your skin’s diminishing ability to protect your body from the sun as you age, your chances of developing signs of sun damage eventually rise.
