Aesthetics & Laser Treatment
Laser & IPL Treatment
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 free consultation and patch test with one our specialists. They 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. Provided your test patch hasn’t caused any problems to the skin your treatment can be booked from a few days later.

Skin Rejuvenation Facial Collagen Booster
The Collagen Boost is a non-invasive treatment that uses a combination of Microdermabrasion, Glycolic Acid Peel and Intense Pulse Light (IPL) to increase collagen production in the face and neck. It is effective for treating fine lines, wrinkles, ageing skin, skin tone, Rosacea and loose skin. This treatment is suitable for all ages, but the best results are seen in patients who have already started the ageing process and patients who had significant amount of environmental damage for skin.

Course of 3 = £450
IPL Skin Rejuvenation
IPL Skin Rejuvenation is treatment used to treat red faces, brown sun/age spots (skin pigmentation) redness and fine lines. Common sites for this include the face, chest and back of the hands. One of the most effective ways to treat this is using an Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Laser System, which uses laser light to selectively destroy the pigment in the skin. Creams and topical treatments would not be very effective because the pigment is too deep within the skin. The laser light can penetrate to the correct level and remove the pigment permanently.
What will I achieve with Skin Rejuvenation?
The treatment can improve skin tone and texture, lift and hydrate skin and even out pigmentation. It makes skin firmer and smoother, reducing lines and wrinkles. It can be used on the face, neck and chest as well as other areas which have been exposed to sun, such as the backs of hands.
Will there be any side effects?
Some redness and swelling may be experienced for up to 48 hours following treatment. Sun spots will darken for 7-10 days before peeling off. Blistering, crusting and scarring can rarely develop. It is very important that patients do not have laser therapy within 4-weeks of an overseas sunny holiday as melanin pigment in the skin absorbs the laser light and can cause a higher risk of side-effects.
What do I need to expect from my first treatment/consultation?
A consultation with one of our practitioners will decide which treatment is going to be effective for your skin problem. They 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. Clear and expected treatment expectations will also be discussed. You will also have a patch test on the chosen area to monitor your skins reaction to treatment. Treatment can be booked a few days later.
Typically, 2-4 sessions are need to achieve desired results. Deep brown marks tend to respond best to treatment compared to lighter marks. Price of treatment very much depends on the size, colour and location of the area and will also be discussed at the consultation.

Facial 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.
The Diode 532 Laser is what we use 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 spear 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.

Laser Tattoo Removal
Here at Enhance we have a specially designed high power Nd:Yag system that has been developed for the sole purpose of laser tattoo removal. We also have amazing practitioners with combined over 15years experience 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. However, most tattoos require 6-8 treatment to remove 80-95% of its colour. This will all be discussed at your initial consultation.
What are the side-effects of laser tattoo removal?
Side effects of this treatment can be quite intense due to the need to explode the tattoo pigment to make the treatment effective. Common effects include:
-Bruising and possible Bleeding
-Crusting following the first treatment
These reactions typically last 5-10 days and heal without any further problems.

Treatment from £40
In this procedure toxins (neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium) are injected into the skin which block signals from the nerves to the muscles. This causes temporary relaxation of the muscles. In facial and neck muscles this helps to smoothen the lines causes by muscular activity and to contour the lower face and neck. However, static facial lines such as those caused by sun damage or volume loss, will not respond to this.
These injections are made simple and almost painless using very fine needles. You should start seeing improvements in 2 to 3 days; however, the full effects can take up to 30 days. The benefits of the treatment can last between 4-6 months. Shorter duration of effects may be observed in some, due to resistance to the toxin.
You will get a free follow up appointment 2-4 weeks after your treatment for any top ups if necessary. Toxin treatments are popular with men as well as women. In fact, the popularity seems to be rising in men!!
Common areas where toxin injections are used include:
Eyes (Crows Feet)
Forehead & Frown lines
(in some cases, your practitioner might recommend using a combination of dermal filler with Botulinum Injections to achieve the best results)
1 Area from £175
2 Areas from £200

Fillers are generally used to improve volume and help in contouring the face. They can also enhance the hydration of the skin. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural component of the skin which helps to maintain its smoothness and elasticity. It is hydrophilic (absorbs water) and hence intensifies the moisturising effect and the suppleness of the skin.
The choice of filler used will depend upon the area being treated and what you are wanting to achieve.
Dermal fillers are used to enhance the hydration of the skin and maintain its smoothness and elasticity. This is a relatively quick treatment that can be performed with or without a local anesthetic/numbing cream. They can also be used to replace lost fat and plump out areas that have come to look somewhat gaunt e.g. cheeks and hollow temples. A client can have fillers to fill and change the shape of their lips, chin, jaw or their nose.
Lip Fillers can create fuller lips and correct droopy corners of the mouth. It is tailored to meet your expectation be it subtle or a more voluptuous effect. This is a quick procedure and can be performed with or without local anaesthetic/numbing cream. The results are usually instant. There could be some initial swelling which settles very quickly after treatment.

Neck Lift Nefertiti
The Nefertiti Lift is a procedure which redefines the lines of the jaw and neck for a youthful, tighter, more contoured appearance without surgery. Toxin injections are used to redefine the jawline and provide ‘lifting’ in the neck area and vertical neck bands.
Thread Lift helps to improve the contour by non-surgical lifting of the skin with absorbable PDO threads. It remodels the skin and stimulates the production of collagen which in turn will restore its youthful nature. The effects can last up to 18months, with improvement beginning to show from week 6 following the procedure. There are various areas this treatment can be used for which include:
Face – The larger threads are very effective in treating jowls and marionette lines of the lower face by tightening the skin and lifting it.
Brow lifts, crow’s feet, smile lines and tear troughs – Small threads can be used where the toxin or filler treatment have not given the desired effects. They can also be used for marionette lines and jowls. Threads can be used alone or in combination with fillers and PRP treatment to enhance the effect.
Neck – Helps to tighten the skin of the neck and improve vertical or horizontal lines. This also can be supplemented with toxin, filler, plasmatherapy, mesotherapy or skin peels.
Abdomen – Can help tighten the loose skin
Arm – Reduce the appearance of ‘wings’ caused by loose skin in the upper arm
The procedure – It can take from 45 minutes to an hour depending on the number of threads used. There is a follow up at week 2 and week 6 week, followed by a 6 months’ check-up.
This involves injecting the skin with hyaluronic acids fortified with vitamins and amino acids to improve the appearance of dehydrated or sun damaged skin. It helps to hydrate the skin and soften the appearance of fine lines and pigmentation. Mesotherapy can also be performed using blood plasma, which is proven to boost the wound healing and collagen formation of the skin. The areas treated include:
Dark circles around the eyes
Back of the hand
The procedure – Mesotherapy can be administered by very fine injections or using a Dermaroller™ or Dermapen™. It is usually undertaken as a course of treatment a few weeks apart to give the best results, although there is no limit to the number of treatments. It is usually painless.
One Session £250
Course of three £700
Platelet Rich Plasma Rejuvenation (PRP)
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) rejuvenation – PRP has been used in wound healing in many specialities of medicine. Plasma extracted from your blood contains cells called platelets that produce growth factors which help wound healing. When PRP is injected into the skin, it stimulates new collagen production and enhances your cells to regenerate making it an anti-ageing treatment. It can be used in combination with a Derma roller™ or mixed with Dermal fillers, vitamins and anti-oxidants for a more superior result. It can be used everywhere on the body- hair loss, face, neck, décolletage, knees, elbows, stretch marks, wounds and scars.
The procedure – A small amount of blood is drawn from the arm and placed in a centrifuge. The spinning of this blood separates the red cells from the plasma which is rich in platelets. This plasma is then extracted and injected back into the desired area. As this uses client’s own blood product and is performed under sterile conditions there is only very minimal risk of allergic reactions or complications, short term or long term.
The whole procedure can take 30 -45 minutes
The results – There could be mild swelling initially. The smoothness of the skin and change in pigmentation are seen noticeable within a month. Over the next few months the platelets release the growth factors stimulating collagen growth which can take up to 3 months. Response varies between individuals but most conditions will need up to three sessions at least 4-6 weeks apart. However, there is no limit to the number of sessions you can have. Regular top ups can maintain the results for longer.
Single Session: £400
In Combination with filler £650
3 Sessions £950
