FAQ's The illumiFacial® 

Am I suitable for illumiFacial® ?

Treatment is perfect for anyone whose skin exhibits congestion,

discolouration and visible signs of ageing, however, a full consultation

is carried out prior to treatment to ascertain your suitability and individual treatment needs. A full treatment plan will then be tailored to treat your specific concerns, all aiming to improve the appearance,

feel and health of your skin.

What should I expect after illumiFacial®?

You may experience a superficial tingling feeling on the skin and you

may see a darkening of pigment spots before they flake away - this

means the treatment has worked perfectly in providing you with a

more even, flawless skin tone. As well as clearer, healthier skin, you

will also experience an ongoing improvement to the firmness and

plumpness of your skin in the following months post-treatment, as new collagen is stimulated deep within the skin tissue.

How does the treatment feel?

illumiFacial is a very quick, comfortable treatment which is designed to provide you with ‘optimum skin health’. Some people will feel a slight tingling sensation when the fruit peel is first applied, but it very quickly subsides. The IPL aspect of this treatment can sometimes be mildly uncomfortable - most people describe the discomfort as feeling like a ‘quick pinprick’ and ‘warm feeling’, which is very tolerable.

Are there any side effects?

The illumiFacial is a completely non-invasive treatment, using safe,

medical-grade equipment to minimise side effects. Your skin may be red and slightly swollen immediately after treatment, but this will subside very quickly. You may also have some patches of dry skin and in very rare cases, a small blister can form with some temporary lightening or darkening of the skin. However, most people experience absolutely no side effects and any reactions usually disappear within a few hours, leaving the skin feeling and looking radiant

FAQ's - Skin Rejuvena​tion

How does the treatment work??

Precisely controlled short pulses of light are released that target discolouration (brown and red lesions) to create a more youthful, even complexion. In addition, this light results in the stimulation of the fibroblast cells, leading to increased production of new collagen and

elastin. This improves the texture of the skin, evening out lumps and bumps whilst reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.


How is the treatment carried out?

Upon consultation a treatment procedure will be tailored specifically to you. The process will include a

light applicator that is placed onto the skin and a short pulse of light is released. The handpiece is then moved to the neighbouring area and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated. During treatment protective eye wear will be provided.

Am I suitable for treatment?

Yes, treatment is suitable for most people. We recommend a full consultation to ascertain your suitability and to allow the treatment to be tailored to your needs.

How does the treatment feel?


Treatment can be mildly uncomfortable but no

anaesthesia is required and most people describe the

discomfort as moderate and acceptable, not unlike a

quick pin prick and warm feeling. 

Are there any side effects?

The skin may be quite red and slightly swollen after treatment but this usually subsides quickly. Very rarely a small blister may form and there can be temporary lightening or darkening of the skin. However, most

people experience no side effects and any skin reaction usually disappears within a few hours.

How long does each treatment take?​

Treatment times can vary but typically between 20-45 minutes

FAQ's - Pigmentation Removal

How does the treatment work??

Light is released in short pulses that are readily absorbed by the high concentration of melanin found

within pigmented lesions. The rapid absorption of light energy heats the melanin and causes the destruction of the melanin-rich cells.


How many treatments are necessary? 

The number of treatments will depend on the type and

size of the pigmented lesion but typically 1 to 3 sessions

are required at 4 to 6 week intervals.

How is the treatment carried out?

The light applicator is placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released. The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated. During treatment protective eye

wear will be provided.

How does the treatment feel?

Most patients describe the discomfort as mild and

tolerable and no anaesthesia is required.

Am I suitable for treatment?

Most people are suitable for treatment except for very dark skinned or tanned individuals. However, large, dark, mottled or raised pigmentation cannot be treated and may need to be checked by a dermatologist. Large, dark moles should not be treated, nor should lesions covering a large part of the body. The pigmented marks that respond the best are superficial lesions such as those caused by sun damage (sun spots) and freckles.


What should I expect after the treatment?

The treated area may feel warm and sensitive for the first few days post treatment. The lesions may darken and may appear more obvious before they fade and 'flake’ away.

Sometimes an initial whitening of the area is seen which quickly fades and the pigment gradually fades over the following few weeks.

FAQ's - Facial Vein Removal

How does the treatment work??

Light energy is applied to the skin where it is readily absorbed by blood vessels, heating them to a point

where they are destroyed. Following treatment, the vessels quickly clear as they are reabsorbed by the body, leaving little or no trace of the original lesion.


How long does each treatment take?

Treatments typically take from 15 to 45 minutes, depending

on the type and size of lesion.

How is the treatment carried out?

The light applicator is placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released. The applicator is moved to the neighbouring area and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated. During treatment, protective eyewear will be provided.

How does the treatment feel?

Treatment is mildly uncomfortable but there is no need

for anaesthesia and the procedure is actually quite quick.

Sensations vary but most describe it as a very quick hot

pin prick.

Am I suitable for treatment?

Treatment is suitable for most people. Best results are obtained for those with fair skin, and there is less

chance of side effects. 

Which types of veins can be treated?

Most red skin lesions, including facial thread veins, rosacea, spider naevi, and port wine stains, can be treated very successfully. Depending on the lesions, leg vessels can also respond well to treatment. 

Are there any side effects?

After treatment the area may feel warm for a few hours.  Rarely, some delicate skin areas such as the cheeks or décolleté can be red and slightly swollen for up to 48 hours. Though very rare, there is a chance a small blister may form and there could be temporary lightening or darkening of the skin.

How many treatments are necessary?

Typically 3 to 5 treatments are needed for optimum results, though small lesions may clear in just a single

session. Repeat treatments are spaced every 4 to 6 weeks.

FAQ's - Acne Treatment

How does Intense Pulsed Light Work?

The light emitted from the Intense Pulsed Light system directly targets overactive sebaceous glands, greatly

reducing the total number and severity of active lesions, and lessening the inflammation and occurrence of break-outs. The light stimulates the production of new

collagen to improve skin texture, and can also reduce the appearance of red or brown areas of skin that are often associated with acne breakouts.

How is the treatment carried out?

A layer of chilled gel is applied to the skin to help guide the light. The light guide is placed onto the skin and a

short pulse of light is released. The applicator is passed over the skin several times before moving onto the neighbouring area, and the process is repeated until the whole area is treated. Each pulse of light treats a large area of skin and so the duration of the treatment is very short. The gel is removed and the skin is moisturised.  During treatment protective eye wear will be provided.

Am I suitable for treatment?

Almost everyone can be treated, apart from very dark skinned or tanned individuals. If you are pregnant or taking Roaccutane (an acne medication) it is best not to

undergo laser or Intense Pulsed Light treatment.

How does the treatment feel?

Treatment is mildly uncomfortable but no anaesthesia is required. Many people describe the sensation as similar to the flick of an elastic band.

Are there any side effects?

The treated area can become quite red immediately after treatment but this usually disappears within a couple of hours. Most people experience no other side effects

but very rarely a small blister could form or the skin may become temporarily lighter or darker.

How many treatments are necessary?

The number of treatments necessary varies from person to person, but typically 6 Intense Pulsed Light

and 6 exfoliating treatments will result in a significant improvement.
