Laser & Radiofrequency

Fractionated Radiofrequency

Fractionated radiofrequency (RF) treatment is the use of RF energy in a grid-like pattern to heat the deeper layers of the skin. This leads to collagen remodeling with improvement in scarring and skin tightening. RF is used to treat acne scarring and is most effective for mild-moderate changes and early scars. RF may be combined […]


Halo treatment uses two lasers to rejuvenate both superficial and deeper layers of the skin. There is immediate improvement in the skin surface with deeper collagen remodeling over the following 3 months. This improves the signs of skin ageing, including pigmentation, redness, fine lines, texture, pore size & laxity. Halo may also be used in […]

Intense Pulsed Light Therapy

INTENSE PULSED LIGHT THERAPY (IPL): Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is used to selectively treat a number of conditions including broken blood vessels (telangiectasia), redness, excess hair, sallowness and freckling. Usually, facial skin texture & tone is also improved after IPL treatment. Broken blood vessels and redness may be due to medical conditions including acne rosacea […]

Laser Scar Revision

Lasers are able to smooth out irregularities in scars, grafts and flaps with a similar effect to ‘sanding’ the surface. As with sanding, there is usually improvement rather than complete resolution of irregularities. The surrounding skin is also lightly lasered to restore a smoother contour and even colour to the facial skin. THE PROCEDURE: Your face is […]

Laser Treatment for Benign Facial Tumours

Lasers are able to accurately destroy small benign facial tumours. After removing the lesions, the surrounding skin is lightly lasered to restore a smoother contour and even colour to the facial skin. A biopsy may be necessary to confirm the type of tumour prior to laser treatment. THE PROCEDURE: Your face is photographed before & […]

Laser Treatment for Sun Damaged Lips

Ablative laser is an appropriate treatment for moderately to severely sun-damaged lips. Laser enables accurate destruction of the abnormal surface layers of the lip. Correction of these precancerous changes in the surface layers of the lip may prevent the development of a lip cancer at a later stage. A biopsy of the lip will be […]

Phototherapy Treatment

WHAT IS PHOTOTHERAPY: Artificial ultraviolet light (narrowband UVB) is used to treat various skin conditions such as psoriasis, dermatitis/eczema etc. Treatment is given standing in a phototherapy booth. Ultra violet light given in our booth is UVB which are absorbed by the upper layers of the skin (epidermis) and can cause burning or tanning. It […]

Profractional Laser Therapy

Profractional Laser Therapy is a new technology in which many tiny channels are created in the skin, similar to a lawn corer. This process stimulates the body’s natural healing processes with increased collagen production. This improves the appearance of surgical, acne and traumatic scars as well as fine wrinkles, freckles, sun damaged and ageing skin. […]

Vascular Laser Treatment

ND-YAG VASCULAR LASER: The Nd-YAG laser is used to treat dilated small blood vessels (telangiectasia) and diffuse redness. Deeper and larger red and purple vascular lesions may also be treated, including lip venous lakes and birthmarks such as port wine stains, venous malformations and haemangiomas. The laser heats and destroys blood vessels with minimal damage […]
