laser & advanced treatments
Laser Genesis treatment
What is Laser Genesis? Laser Genesis is a non-invasive laser treatment designed to target fine lines, acne scars, large pores, and uneven skin tone by heating the upper dermis of your skin, which accelerates collagen regrowth. Laser Genesis facial treatment will help tighten large pores, effectively treat fine lines, and diffuse redness in the skin by thickening the skin. The laser penetrates the collagen layer and stimulates contraction to tighten and tone. This laser restores skin's healthy appearance and glow.
How does it work? The heat from the laser kills bacteria on the skin and deep within the skin, which drastically helps diminish active acne while preventing further breakouts. The heat also stimulates collagen production, which is what helps remodel/heal scars and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Laser Genesis is ideal for patients who are frustrated with premature signs of aging. Being such a versatile treatment, Genesis is able to address multiple signs of aging at once while being non-ablative and requiring no downtime.
The results of a Laser Genesis treatment will vary from individual to individual. However, most patients enjoy results which last between 6 and 12 months before follow-up treatments will be necessary.
This treatment is relaxing and comfortable lasting approximately 45 minutes. Generally, you will require between 3 and 6 treatments, spaced about a month apart, for optimal results. Most guests opt to have maintenance sessions every three to four months to maintain their youthful look.
If you've had a dermal filler procedure like Juvederm in the past, there won't be any negative side effects. In fact, the opposite has proven to be true. Patients that have had some sort of dermal filling prior to laser genesis have enjoyed increased volume of these fillers due to the laser genesis.
While BOTOX can be administered at the same time as laser treatments, the potential side effects, such as swelling, can damage the tissue or alter your end results.
Excess or unwanted hair is a problem that affects both men and women. Most people spend years using up both time and money on waxing, plucking or shaving. The results simply don’t last long enough and can also be followed by ingrown hairs or painful rashes. Here at Enhance Aesthetics & Beauty we offer laser technology using the amazing Cynosure Elite (an advanced and medical graded machine) to effectively treat areas of unwanted hair and prevent hair growth (reducing or even eliminating the need to shave, pluck or wax)
How many sessions will I need?
The number of sessions needed will vary depending on the area being treated, and how quickly and effectively your body reacts to the laser treatment. As a general rule we say that 6-8 sessions are recommended to be had at 4-6 week intervals.
What do I need to expect from my Consultation?
All treatment starts with a consultation and patch test with our specialist. She will be able to look at the area and give you more detail including how it works, what results to expect and how many sessions you will need. Before your consultation make sure to allow any hair to grow slightly. Once you test patch has been done, your treatment can be booked from a few days later.
What is the difference between IPL and Advanced Laser?
The key difference between the two treatments is the IPL uses a broad spectrum of high intensity light, which is emitted at multiple wavelengths, whereas laser emits a single, focused and precise wavelength that’s optimised for maximum follicle absorption.

Brown patches on the skin are generally caused by sun damage. Our Laser practitioner can easily treat this for you. You will have a thorough consultation, when the science behind the treatment can be explained in detail and you can voice any concerns. The skin underneath can be slightly pink but within a few weeks it will appear normal without the dark patch. Depending on the individual, 2 or 3 treatments are recommended. Our practitioner will advise you of the best way forward for you.
Will there be any side effects?
After treatment, the area will be temporarily darker, and a crust will then form on the skin which must be allowed to fall off without help!
What do I need to expect from my first treatment/consultation?
A thorough consultation and patch test will be offered by our practitioner during which she will discuss all aspects of the treatment ranging from how it works, how many sessions will be required and what the potential side effects are. T
reatment can be booked 24 hours later.
Deep brown marks tend to respond best to treatment compared to lighter marks.

thread vein removal
Laser Thread Vein removal is the most effective treatment currently available for removing Facial Thread Veins. It is a quick and easy treatment. Typically, it takes 20-30 mins and most facial thread veins can be removed in just 2-3 treatment sessions. We used IPL or Laser to effectively treat vessels on the cheeks and nose. This can also be combined for some clients with one or two sessions of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy to remove any background redness and flushing.
What do I need to expect from my Consultation?
Your practitioner will start off with some general questions about your skin and then the expected results, number of sessions required, potential side-effects and costs will all be discussed with you in full. You will then need to have a patch test and treatment can be booked from a few days later
What should I expect after my treatment?
You may appear slightly red and flushed soon after your treatment, however these usually subside after a few hours. We also recommend avoiding the use of makeup directly after treatment, as your skin will be slightly tender.
High factor sunscreen is essential if going in any sun.
Thread veins on the leg can sometimes respond well to treatment.
This decision can be made at your consultation.
Patch Test £20
Treatment from £50
laser tattoo removal
Using a specially designed high power Q-Switched Nd:Yag system that has been developed for the sole purpose of laser tattoo removal. The laser works by destroying the pigment using a specific wavelength of light specific to that colour.
How many treatments will be required and how much will it cost?
The number of sessions and cost very much depends on the tattoo size, location, colour and your skin type.
Multiple sessions are needed and some colours are easier to treat than others.
This will all be discussed at your initial consultation.
Patch Test £20
Treatment from £40
Dermaroller stimulates the skin’s collagen to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier and younger-looking skin. It can break down scar tissue and stretch marks successfully as well as tightening and firming older skin.
Your practitioner will use a device to produce thousands of micro-medical needle-columns into the skin.
Each column will penetrate the dermis of the skin and close rapidly enabling the skin to recover quickly.
Anaesthetic numbing cream will be applied to the skin around 30 mins prior to treatment.
(On average, a minimum of 2-3 sessions done once every 6 weeks is necessary to achieve optimum results)
Single Treatment £150
Course of 3 (Recommended) £380
