Cosmetic Laser Treatment
For our range of laser treatments, we have chosen the excel HR by Cutera, one of the most respected brands in the world. The excel HR utilises a high-performance dual-wavelength laser system which provides premium hair-removal solutions for all parts of the body, as well as treatment for unsightly veins and fungal nail infections, and to rejuvenate skin.
Effective, safe and comfortable, the excel HR by Cutera is a twenty-first century solution to a range of skin-therapy challenges.
Sunspots and Pigmentation
Our Cutera Laser can safely and effectively treat individual sunspots and diffuse sun damage. Expect the treated areas to look worse before they look better, darkening over a day or two to eventually wear off. You may require 2-3 treatments about 4 weeks apart. In our country many people, women especially, suffer from deeper pigmentation in their skin, which is known as Melasma. This is most often hormone related. Our laser has a wavelength that can target this pigment safely. IPL will not be able to move this type of pigmentation.
We prefer to meet you for a complimentary 15 min consultation and test patch before treatment.
Fungal Nail Laser Treatment
Fungal nail infections are a common problem which in the past could be incredibly hard to treat. Now there is an alternative to oral medications and topical treatments — the excel HR laser, which penetrates through the nail to the nail bed, to kill the fungus at its source. Treatments are painless, fast and effective, and can clear a persistent infection in just three or four sessions.
Vein Therapy for Face and Body
Laser technology can also be used to quickly, safely and effectively treat superficial veins, minimising their appearance. The laser’s energy can be targeted to destroy smaller, shallower blood vessels, redirecting blood flow more deeply within the skin.
