Summary

As well as changes in texture, elasticity and thickness, aging skin can undergo various pigmentary changes.

Sun Spots are usually circular flat tan-coloured  pigmented spots, called solar lentigines (also known as liver or age spots). Sun spots are the result of frequent, excess or cumulative sun exposure, are the result of sun damage. Patients with sun spots tend to be of fair complexion. Without treatment sun spots do not fade, instead they grow and darken over time.

Rosacea is a chronic vascular skin condition which presents as redness of the face and sometimes of the neck and chest. The vascular component of rosacea can vary from flushing to permanent redness (telangectasia) with many fine superficial blood vessels

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment  improves hyperpigmentation, brown spots, texture redness and fine lines. IPL emits a range of wavelengths of light that are converted into heat energy in the melanin-rich pigmented cells, resulting in lightened skin. Using special filters IPL can also treat the fine blood vessels associated with rosacea. The latest version of the Lumenis M22 (OptiLight) IPL has been designed with specific settings for the treatment of sun spots and vascular lesions (like rosacesa). This treatment has no downtime or recovery, although you are advised to use proper sun protection following treatment.

The Process

Prior to treatment, you will attend an Aesthetic Consultation with our Facial Aesthetic Clinician. Here we will discuss with you in detail your medical history, your skin type, concerns and desired result and go through treatment, ensuring you are a safe and suitable candidate for IPL treatment.

On the day of treatment we will review your treatment plan before proceeding to treat the areas agreed.

Treatments are carried out in our operating theatre suite. You will recline on a couch and your eyes will be protected with special goggles. Cool soothing gel is applied to the treatment area. The skin is treated with intense pulsed light in several passes.

We will ask to see you in clinic again 2 – 3 weeks for your next treatment. A course of treatments is required to achieve the desired results.

So helpful and reassuring. My site is amazing. The whole process was so smooth, I understood everything that I was told and knew of any risks and potential side effects before agreeing to anything. Couldn't be happier.

I recently had permanent lens procedure carried out by Mr Ghosh. Having glasses as a child and contact lenses for many years, this has been an absolute revelation for me. Mr Ghosh was absolutely brilliant and very professional from the start. All the staff are lovely and especially like to thank Dianne, Anita and the team. This has changed my life for the better thanks.

I visited the My Hearing Clinic knowing I needed a hearing assessment but thinking it was just a build up of wax. It came as a shock that I heard a hearing loss which needed addressing. The service I received from Andrew was outstanding! He explained my hearing loss and went through all my options. He recognised that it was a lot of information to take in so made a follow up appointment, giving me sufficient time to think about what I wanted to do. From start to finish the service has been excellent, efficient, professional and friendly from the moment you walk through the door and meet Lee. The clinic is well located, parking on site, high standard of cleanliness. Definitely a recommendation from me. Thank you!
