One of the main ways we judge our appearance is by the colour and texture of our skin – our skin tone. The more even the colour and smoother the texture, the younger we appear and more attractive we feel. But a number of factors can affect skin tone on the face or body, such as changes in the distribution of melanin (skin pigmentation or colouring) or the amount of collagen and elastin (which gives skin its volume and texture).
Sun damage – may lead to darker patches called ‘age spots’ or ‘liver spots’, particularly on the face and hands. It can also reduce levels of collagen and elastin so that skin sags and wrinkles prematurely.
Discolouration or pigmentation – light or dark brown areas develop, particularly on the face, in a cluster or big patch rather than as spots or freckles.

While we can’t always stop some of the signs of ageing skin, such as fine lines and wrinkles, we can do lots to maintain a healthy and youthful skin tone and reduce these unwanted effects. We find results are enhanced with the use of the quality products we can recommend.
Our range of peels and skin resurfaces can help to improve skin texture and redefine pores and are suitable for a range of conditions including pigmentation (discolouration), scars left by ingrowing hairs, lines and wrinkles, redness or rosacea and acne.
LASER SKIN REJUVENATION
Laser skin rejuvenation improves skin tone and texture for a more youthful look. It involves minimal ‘downtime’ and is suitable for a range of conditions including large and small areas of pigmentation (discolouration), rosacea, redness/inflammation and visible (or broken) veins.
Micro-needling can be used on its own or in combination with other treatments. It helps to reduce lines, wrinkles, open pores and acne scarring and treats dry dehydrated skin to leave your skin looking fresher and smoother.
We have two treatment options – our DermaFrac machine has minimal downtime, while Collagen P.I.N. involves a slightly longer recovery.
LED LIGHT THERAPY
We use blemish-fighting blue light therapy to treat the causes and symptoms of acne and rosacea by reducing inflammation, irritation and bacteria.
Red light therapy accelerates cell renewal, boosts collagen and elastin synthesis and increases hydration for smoother firmer skin.
Near infrared light helps repair skin and offers advance rejuvenation benefits, calming redness and irritation and reducing pigmentation with no downtime. Light treatments an be used alone or in combination with other clinical treatments.
