- The Medical grade Laser uses short impulse light to treat any pigmentation or redness and give an even and glowing skin tone.

- will then be required to attend the clinic for 3 sessions of laser 4 weeks apart.
How does the Laser work?
By exposing a pigmented or vascular lesion to short pulses of visible light, the temperature in the highly concentrated area of haemoglobin can be raised sharply, enough to damage the vessel wall and shatter. The vessels are then absorbed by the body, making them less visible.
What can I expect from the treatment?
Depending on your skin type (and the lesion being treated) some redness and swelling may be visible, but will usually subside around 48 hours after treatment. lesions may appear darker around 5-7 days later. During treatment, some patients may feel a mild discomfort, but there isn’t any need for numbing agents or anaesthetic. The treatment is quick and effective.
