If you suffer with damaged skin, perhaps caused by overexposure to the sun, or skin conditions such as pigmentation, age spots, fine thread veins or rosacea, our Skin Rejuvenation treatment may be just the treatment you need.

At HSC Clinic, we use Ellipse Flex IPL to refresh and rejuvenate imperfect skin. IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light and is from the family of laser.

IPL uses a broad spectrum of light aimed at the skin to treat sun damage, pigmentation, facial thread veins and redness. During the treatment, light energy turns into heat and breaks the pigments or the red veins that are responsible for these troublesome skin conditions.

As well as reducing redness and pigmentation, it also stimulates collagen production and improves skin texture.

CONDITIONS THAT CAN BE TREATED WITH IPL:

  • Facial thread veins
  • Rosacea and redness
  • Pigmentation and sun damage
  • Poor skin texture and large pores

BENEFITS

  • Reduces redness and capillaries
  • Minimises pigmentation
  • Improves skin texture and tone
  • Renews your self-confidence
  • Long-lasting results

Frequently Asked Questions

Everything you need to know

Pigmentation is the presence of too much melanin pigment in one area which makes a visible brown mark or patch. This is caused by over-activity within the melanin producing cells, called melanocytes. Pigmentation can be caused by many things such as hormonal disturbances, the contraceptive pill, pregnancy, some medications, sun damage, using products with too much fragrance or preservative, or certain illnesses, just to name a few.

A thread vein is a small, visible blood vessel near the surface of the skin that has lost its elasticity, resulting in it being permanently dilated. They are often quite unsightly and can have either a red or bluish colour. They can appear individually or in a cluster, which are sometimes referred to as spider veins. The most common places for them to appear is on and around the nose and cheek area. There are numerous causes for thread veins including age, smoking, hormones and extreme temperatures to name a few. They can also be hereditary.

Rosacea is a common skin disorder characterised by redness and swelling of the face. Symptoms can often vary from person to person, but not everyone will experience all the possible symptoms. Symptoms of rosacea can include flushing, persistent redness, visible blood vessels and papules and pustules.

You may experience some mild discomfort – patients often compare the sensation to the flicking of a rubber band against the skin – but treatment is not painful and is usually over fairly quickly. Our friendly team will always ensure that you remain comfortable throughout your treatment.

Results can be permanent, but it is important to bear in mind that over the years, the ageing process can see the emergence of new skin conditions unrelated to your treatment. It’s also important that you take care to protect your skin from further damage following treatment.

This will depend on two factors: how severe your condition is, and how long you have had it. We will work with you to formulate a treatment plan at your initial consultation.

There may be slight redness, swelling and a warm sensation to the area immediately after treatment, which normally settles within hours or the next day.  Pigmentation will look darker and can take up to 2 weeks to fade away. The treated area will then look clearer and brighter.

Your suitability for treatment will be assessed at your initial consultation and confirmation made following a patch test. Your skin must not be tanned prior to treatment to reduce risks. We may also advise against treatment for those with darker skin as the risk of complications is higher. This is something we will discuss in depth at your initial consultation.

AMAZING FEEDBACK FROM THE PEOPLE THAT MATTER

Debbie Ireland

Have been to this clinic for various treatments over this past 10 months, with both therapists and have been very happy with every aspect of service and treatment. Very pleasant, friendly and helpful service from everyone.

Nicola Hawkins

Marzieh is absolutely fantastic. I have been to see her for years and travel from London as I believe she is the best. She is honest with expectations, would not give advice in order to make money like other clinics would and gives clients time to go away and think of their options. Due to this and how professional and knowledgeable she has been throughout my treatments with her I highly recommend this clinic and will (until she decides to move) be coming back here for a long time!
