Non-Surgical Treatments in Liverpool: Say no to the knife
19 Aug 2012
Many of us aren't satisfied with the natural state of our bodies and lots of us have considered cosmetic surgery to improve the way we look and feel about ourselves.
If you suffer from porous skin, acne scars, unsightly moles or leg thread veins, you're certainly not alone. These are all natural skin ailments which can be brought about by a number of different causes, including genetics, hormones, sun damage or age. But however long you've suffered you can now eliminate your problems without having to resort to surgery.
Liverpool's sk:n clinic offers a range of non-surgical treatments to help your skin look fresher, clearer and more youthful, and remove unsightly marks.
Laser resurfacing is ideal for those of us who've suffered from the traumas of teenage acne - aiming to eliminate the scars even if we can't say goodbye to the painful memories. It's also perfect for rejuvenating ageing or sun damaged skin and providing a firmer, more youthful look by eliminating undesired old skin cells. Using short blasts from a laser hand piece, resurfacing reveals the new skin cells beneath your tired, top layer, providing fresh, glowing skin without the need for surgery.
Moles can be viewed as a beauty spot or an eyesore, but they can also be indicative of more serious health problems such as skin cancer, so it's important to get them checked out by your specialist.
But if all is well, you still might wish to have your mole removed for aesthetic reasons. The mole removal procedure for small moles can be undertaken simply and quickly, with a laser, using thermal energy to break down and eliminate it. You'll feel heat from the laser, like the sun on a very hot day.
Leg thread veins can be removed using a similar laser procedure, as well through as sclerotheraphy, which involves injecting a solution into the vein. Both treatments are non-invasive and relatively pain free, with results that are visible after a single session.
