Laser Therapy

When most people think of lasers they tend to think of the cutting and burning type, but the term encompasses a broad range of lasers that do very different things.

What is LASER?

The word LASER is an acronym. It stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. The word ‘radiation’ tends to have a negative connotation, but is essentially energy in various forms. For example, our own bodies produce thermal radiation in the form of heat.  Lasers produce light, and light is electromagnetic energy. The smallest particle of light is the photon. There are many types of lasers. Why?

The electromagnetic spectrum contains both visible and invisible light, and the colour of light is determined by the light’s wavelength, some we can see, some we can’t.   The visible part of the spectrum includes violet, blue, green, yellow, orange and red. Each of these light colours carry a specific amount of energy. Beneficial invisible light includes near, mid and far infrared. Thus individual lasers generate only one colour or wavelength of the spectrum and each colour     targets a specific cell structure or organelle—known as a chromophore.

Different lasers are used for different skin conditions. Our lasers offer safe, and pain free treatment for a vast variety of skin and body conditions.

Before I found your clinic I was considering surgery for my baggy eyelids but since having the laser treatments I don’t need to worry about it. I’m really happy with the way the treatments have worked and I don’t look like I’m tired all the time anymore. I would recommend this treatment to anyone thinking of surgery.
