The laser treatment department covers all general dermatology and cosmetic concerns and can develop bespoke treatments for individual patients.
In dermatology, the hospital offers advanced therapies such as the N-Lite laser which stimulates the skin to repair and heal. The ingenious device can repair scar tissue, remove warts and skin tags and successfully treat acne with patients feeling little more than a tingling sensation during the procedure.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a skin rejuvenation procedure that uses pulses of light to penetrate the skin and prompt the collagen and blood vessels to react to enhance skin complexion and reduce the impact of ageing.
It can be used as a tailor-made treatment for acne, sunspots, Rosacea (reddened veins in the face) with a series of six weekly treatments for best results. The pulses can be calibrated to treat different conditions and to generally rejuvenate the skin. Treatments take from around ten to 30 minutes depending on the area of skin and extent of the problem.
Laser therapies can also be employed for pain-free hair removal and hair reduction which leaves the skin undamaged.
Titan skin tightening
The general signs of ageing can also be addressed by using Titan therapy which uses a broadband spectrum of infrared light which gently increases the water content of the skin causing the collagen to contract and tighten while also encouraging the body’s natural healing process to join in to improve skin appearance. It is particularly effective on the face and neck and suitable for small areas of redundant skin on the abdomen post pregnancy.
Sciton Erbium Yag
Our dermatologists also offer the advanced treatments with the Sciton Erbium-YAG laser which produces a unique smoothing effect with rapid healing. The laser is precise and allows the physician to gently ‘wash’ away layers of skin to smooth away the first signs of wrinkles such as lip lines, crow’s feet or sunspots.
It can work wonders with acne scarring and treatments can be done in a lunchtime or during a work break.
The unit also offers Mohs surgery, the specialist surgery used to treat non-melanoma skin cancers with the accurate removal of damaged skin. The team is also skilled and experienced at assessing and diagnosing moles and potential skin cancers.
One of the most troubling skin issues is visible scarring which can take years to subside. A range of treatments is available to drastically reduce the sight of scars and level the skin after initial healing. They range form laser ablative therapy, which removes the upper lays of skin and stimulating fresh growth of collagen to form new layers, to skilfully skin grafts and derma sanding, which uses a rotary buffing instrument to treat scars, wrinkles, colour and contour regularities to promote fresher looking skin.
