There are many different types of scarring, depending on the cause. Scars are created when there has been trauma to the skin. They can be flat and white, or raised and red in colour. Although they are not life-threatening, they can pose a serious psychological burden on those who carry them. Some scars are easier to treat than others, and because of the many varieties of scars, it is always important to be consulted prior to treatment to ensure you get the best result for your particular scar.

Stretchmarks are usually pink when they first form, then turn a silvery colour the more mature they are. They are usually a result of pregnancy, weight gain or loss, or growth spurts during pregnancy.

Thread veins, redness and rosacea are common indications. Thread veins, in particular, can be difficult to treat, and more often than not you will need a course of treatment to see any significant difference.

These include Melasma and pigmentation problems, leg veins, and even hair removal, with cooling technology to minimise any discomfort caused during treatment by keeping skin at a lower temperature. As well as this, the device comes with a built in Skintel Melanin Reader to ensure every patient is appropriately treated for their skin tone.
