LED Photo-therapy is based on the principle that living cells are able to absorb and are influenced by light and the treatment has long been recognised for its regenerating and anti-inflammatory properties. While we often associate light exposure with skin ageing and damage, light also has many positive influences on the body. It helps us produce vitamin D and provides energy and serotonin and can also accelerate our skin’s natural repair processes.
The differences between the positive and negative effects of light are the amount and the parts of the light spectrum we are exposed to. On-going exposure to UV is very damaging but controlled levels of Red, Blue and Near Infrared light are clinically proven to be beneficial. The treatment involves exposing the skin to low levels of this beneficial light energy from the visible and infrared part of the light spectrum which energise cellular functions to stimulate various cellular processes with therapeutic effects. Skin cells that are energised function better and regenerate faster which in turn leads to younger, healthy and radiant skin.
The Flex delivers clinically proven Blue 415nm, Red 633nm and Near Infrared 830nm via single wavelength LED’s to ensure precision and optimum optical power. Wavelengths can be selected as individual or multi-wavelength treatments via 7 protocol options to target a wide range of skin concerns and post treatment application. Treatments are a 30-minute duration.
Profhilo® is an effective and natural looking non-surgical facelift treatment, it is a new discovery in facial ageing addressing skin laxity, not just filling lines and wrinkles. Made of 100% HA (Hyaluronic Acid), it nourishes dermal cells and restores firmness of the skin. This treatment will hydrate your skin from the inside out, getting rid of any ‘crepey’ skin.
A skin laxity treatment, Profhilo® uses patented technologies engineered for ‘skin remodelling’, a revolutionary concept of ‘curling’ wrinkles rather than ‘filling’ them. It effectively stimulates the production of both your natural collagen and elastin to renew your skin from within.
Thanks to the unique characteristics of Profhilo®, skin condition can be visibly improved after just 2 sessions, with a 1-month interval, and only 5 injection points on each side of the face. Profhilo® can be used on a number of areas including the full face (including eye area), neck, décolletage, upper arms and hands and is suitable for practically anyone, men and women, from 30 years’ old and with no upper age limit. A top-up session can be done 6-12 months later.

- Increase skin firmness and elasticity
- Tighten and lift skin
- Improve skin tone and texture
- Rehydrated skin
- Restore radiance
Pricing: £450.00 ( Covers first two sessions) & £250.00 per session thereafter
Anti-Wrinkle Injections (Botox® / Azzalure®) & Dermal Fillers
Many people have heard of this miraculous treatment for wrinkles and expression lines, but what is Botox? It is actually the trade name for a substance injected into the skin which is known to inhibit muscle movement and prevent wrinkles developing or worsening.
Botox injections are now one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world and celebrities including Madonna and Kylie Minogue are rumoured to use this procedure for aesthetic purposes.
How does Botox work?
Botox treatment works by blocking the nerve signals to the affected muscles around the injection site. The muscles become more relaxed and their activity is reduced, in turn reducing the effects on the skin such as lines. When injected into the problem area, it freezes muscle movement by blocking neuro-transmitters for a period of 4-6 months, so the treatment needs to be administered a few times a year to maintain the curative affects.
Where are fillers used?
Fillers are a gel-like substance that is injected into different parts of the skin. The depth of injection and consistency of the filler dictates the results that will be achieved: deep injections with firm fillers create volume and shape to the face, mid-depth injections with medium-firm fillers reduce the appearance of creases, superficial injections into the dermis with soft fillers help to smooth out wrinkles, plump and hydrate the skin.
It is also worth noting that fillers can be injected in different ways: using a needle or a cannula. A cannula is a blunt tube that deposits filler underneath the skin and can be used to treat any part of the face e.g. tear troughs, cheeks, jawline or lips.
