Why we love Intense Pulsed Light or IPL

IPL, Intense Pulsed Light is the most powerful weapon against skin ageing.

We have a number of anti-ageing treatments available today. These include anti-ageing supplements, vitamins, lotions, potions and hormones. What is striking is that none of these reverse skin ageing and prevent skin ageing to the extent that IPL does.
We have been using IPL photorejuvenation for many years and patients typically remark how well their skin looks. The effect on improved skin tone, complexion blending and brightening is seen within weeks. This is not all thought, when patients come back a few months or years later you can see a healthy glow to the skin, improved texture, reduced fine lines, wrinkles and pore size too.

There is now available peer reviewed scientific literature showing that regular maintenance IPL treatments functionally rejuvenate skin and delay skin ageing. IPL treated skin looks more youthful and healthier. Regular maintenance treatments enhance this effect even further. Many doctors have also observed reduced incidence of skin cancers in IPL treated skin.

A recent study at Stanford showed that IPL treated skin showed favourable changes at genetic level. A very powerful observation that came out of this study is that IPL treated skin shows gene expression patterns of a younger skin. Not only is IPL treated skin looking younger, it is genetically getting younger too! These changes are also seen at a microscopic level. IPL treated skin shows less pigmentation, redness and elastosis and more uniform collagen deposition.

We now have the technology and considerable experience of using this technology effectively to repair the appearance of damaged skin, delay and help prevent signs of skin ageing and also possibly reduce the risk of skin cancers in the treated skin. It works very well on the face-photofacial and non facial areas.

In my opinion if you are going to choose one treatment for your skin health-it has to be IPL.

NICE guidance for treatment of Varicose Veins

Endothermal ablation, EVLT or EVLA is considered best treatment for Varicose Veins.  We use the latest 3rd generation lasers for EVLT.
Surgery used to be the most widely used treatment for Varicose Veins but controversy remains about possible drawbacks of vein surgery. Need for general anaesthesia, large incisions and formation of new veins [neo-vascularisation] being some of these. Recently however surgery has waned in popularity. This is due to a move towards less invasive procedures in general and due to emergence of very effective minimally invasive vein treatments such as EVLA and foam sclerotherapy.

There are new treatments such has clarivein, injectable dyes, glue etc but these do not have the evidence to be considered as treatments of choice. Only lasers and foam sclerotherapy are widely recognised standard treatments at present.

Laser treatment of pearly penile papules

Hirsuties coronae glandis (also known as "hirsutoid papillomas,"and "pearly penile papules") are small whitish blemishes on glans penis or corona glandis. The papules appear as one or several rows of small, pearly or flesh-colored, smooth, dome-topped bumps. It is a harmless anatomical variation. They are found significantly more often on uncircumcised men and younger men.
They are common and estimated to be present in a quarter of adult men.  These bumps are not transmitted through sexual activity and are not a sexually transmitted infection (STI).

Treatment Some of the "home remedies" found on the Internet and elsewhere use mild ointments or creams to soften the papules, but others are physically dangerous techniques for papule removal which can result in permanent genital mutilation. Rapini et al. advise that, since dermatologists have safe, effective ways to remove them if desired, home remedies involving corrosive substances or self-surgery should be avoided, since they can permanently damage sexual functioning. They further state that removal should only be performed by a physician using proven medical techniques.[Source: wikipedia]

CO2 laser ablation is the gold-standard treatment for PPP or
pearly penile papules. We use a local anaesthetic cream to numb the area. Laser ablation is then a quick and painless procedure. Smaller papules are vapourised in an instant. Larger ones form a superficial scab which falls off in 7-10 days.

Cost typical cost for a session is £ 500 and usually only one session is required.

A guide to 'lunchtime' skin rejuvenation procedures

A guide to 'lunchtime' skin rejuvenation procedures
Looking younger does not have to mean cosmetic surgery 
Men and Women can choose from a variety of non-surgical treatments that can turn the clock back. The procedures discussed in this article were designed to reverse, improve or erase the earliest signs of ageing such as wrinkles, fine lines and sun damaged skin. They are often referred to as
lunch time procedures because they take very little time to perform and do not require a recovery period. 
What our patients like the most about these is that no one has to know they had them. They just look better!
 Your treatment options
About nine out of 10 patients seeking to look younger want to do so without going under the knife. They wish to avoid surgery, the anaesthesia, the down-time and the added expense. 

Injectbles relax the wrinkle producing muscles so they do not contract. After treatment the overlying skin remains smooth while the underlying facial muscles contract in a normal fashion allowing normal facial expressions to be unaffected.

Dermal fillers fill our wrinkles with a natural clear gel. No allergy test is required. These can also be used for lips, cheek or chin enhancements, nose reshaping and filling dark circles under the eyes.
Photorejuvenation is designed to reverse signs of skin ageing in a gentle way. IPL is used to simultaneously remove broken veins, age spots and pigment whilst stimulating new collagen and shrink pore size. It can blend and brighten your complexion.

Non-ablative lasers and radio-frequency treat wrinkles and lax skin by stimulating your own collagen production. This newly formed collagen fills the wrinkles from within.

Microdermabrasion leaves your skin softer, smoother and fresh looking. In less than 30 minutes this gentle treatment produces satisfying results.

Gentle chemical peels can improve skin texture, reduce acne and pigmentation. They gently exfoliate, smooth and soften the skin while they remove the outer layer of skin cells. They are great to improve dull, lifeless complexion.
Coltishall Cosmetic Clinic focuses on customised treatments for your unique needs. We only provide evidence based treatments that have a high satisfaction rate. We do not offer speculative or gimmicky treatments without established safety profile.
