Non-Surgical Cosmetic Treatments
Microsclerotherapy for thread veins
Microsclerotherapy is a treatment to remove your smaller leg veins that lie just beneath the skins surface, called thread and spider veins. These veins tend to branch out and give a spidery sort of pattern that may cause you to feel self-conscious about them.
The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis normally by one of our specialist nurses under the supervision of our vascular surgeon. It involves using a very fine needle to inject a sclerosing drug into your vein to destroy the vein and cause it to disappear. More than one vein can be treated at a time. Your blood will be rerouted through healthier veins and when your vein has collapsed it will be absorbed by your body and eventually fade, usually within a few weeks.
Harmony Pixel – laser resurfacing of the skin
The Harmony Pixel is the latest in laser resurfacing designed to treat aged and photo-damaged skin on your face, neck, chest, arms and hands. It can diminish discolorations, reduce pore size, smooth and tighten your skin and brighten your complexion.
It works by improving the quality and texture of your skin whilst also stimulating collagen regeneration. It’s a gradual process that happens over several treatments and the stimulated new collagen growth continues to improve the appearance of your skin for several months after treatments are completed.
It offers effective resurfacing that’s convenient and comfortable with a short recovery period, and without the need for gel or consumables.
You can book a free consultation with our specialist nurse to discuss your needs in more detail.
Soprano - laser hair reduction
Soprano laser is the leading laser hair reduction solution. It offers fast, comfortable, complete, effective and permanent laser hair reduction. It’s suited to most skin types and skin tones and it can be used on a variety of areas of the face and body for both men and women.
It works by passing laser light safely through your skin’s dermal layers. The laser is attracted to the pigment at your hair root and destroys your hair follicles at their base.
A course of sessions is normally recommended as your hair growth takes place in cycles and it’s not possible to destroy every follicle in a single treatment.
We offer a free nurse consultation to discuss your individual needs.

Treatment of lines, wrinkles and fillers
Injections are used to smooth and soften fine lines and wrinkles. If you’ve deep lines and wrinkles, then dermal fillers may be a more effective treatment for you. Both are performed by one of our highly experienced cosmetic consultants.
Muscle relaxant injections are used to smooth away frown lines between your brows and eye lines and wrinkles, known as crow’s feet. The injection blocks the nerve impulse to your facial muscles and reduces or stops the contractions that cause wrinkles. Your relaxed muscles are then unable to crease your skin and facial lines diminish and disappear. The effects are temporary and last from three to six months. Clinical studies suggest that these injections have a cumulative effect, so top up treatments may last longer.
Dermal fillers can restore volume, fill deep lines, wrinkles and folds and redefine lips by replacing the collagen lost due to natural ageing or skin damage. We offer a range of premium dermal fillers; each has different properties suitable for different skin types. Your consultant will suggest a dermal filler most appropriate for you. Dermal filler treatment usually takes around twenty minutes. Small amounts of dermal filler are injected into your skin using a very fine needle. This helps plump up your skin and smooth out lines and wrinkles. For lips and facial contours, the filler adds volume, and restores shape. Most dermal filler treatments last between six to twelve months.
