Norwich Cosmetic Clinic
Many people want to improve the texture of their skin to reduce the signs of ageing, scars or blemishes. Chemical peels can help to restore a younger, fresher appearance by removing a layer of skin with a chemical preparation. As the skin grows back, it is smoother than before and imperfections are reduced.
There are various types of chemical peel - superficial, medium and deep - and they achieve different results. Superficial peels are easy to apply and the time needed for healing is minimal, but they won't achieve long lasting or dramatic results. Medium peels can achieve more dramatic and long lasting results for blemishes, fine lines and facial scarring. A deep peel will help reduce more severe facial wrinkles.
Intense Pulsed Light Skin Rejuvenation
The clinic uses combined bipolar radiofrequency and pulsed light energies of the elos technology precisely and safely to target pigmented lesions such as freckles, sunspots and age spots, Vascular lesions such as spider veins and redness from rosacea/facial flushing are also lightened and gradually fade.
Immediately after treatment one may notice a darkening up of the lesion. Gradual and cumulative improvement of skin tone is typically achieved between 3-6 treatment sessions on a monthly basis. The total number of required treatment sessions depends on your skin's condition. Schedule a consultation to establish your personalised treatment schedule.
This is a no downtime procedure. Many patients return to normal activities immediately after treatment. For more information see our ADDITIONAL PAGES section.

Intense Pulsed Light Acne Treatment
This utilises a blue light wavelenght to treat active acne by destroying the cell walls of the bacteria that cause acne and reduces sebum (oily secretions). The clinic combines this treatment with microdermabrasion/enzyme mask treatments for the best results. 4-6 treatments are usually required weekly depending on how severe the acne condition is.
Carbon dioxide (CO2) fractional laser resurfacing
The SmartXide DOT is a fractional CO2 laser system that is able to stimulate collagen by only hitting small areas in depth, leaving normal skin in-between and therefore this technology does away with the traditional CO2 laser side effects of pain, scabs and swelling. The fractional laser method now enables a significant reduction of after treatment pain and redness. Usually post treatment redness lasts only a few days (4-7 days) and can be easily covered with cosmetics. Usually 2-4 treatments are required 30 - 40 days apart for melasma(deep pigmentation of the skin), acne scarring and deep facial lines.
The treatment is safe and effective meaning that it can be used for all types of skin and for different parts of the body eg. face, neck, decolette and hands, even with the most delicate skin type. The laser stimulates your own collagen and therefore results continue to improve for at least 6 months from your last treatment. For more information see our ADDITIONAL PAGES section.
