A Guide to Laser Treatment

10th November 2019

Laser treatments help improve skin with a more natural result. In this post, we’ll explain this clever technology, outline the key skin concerns that can benefit from the treatment, and give you a breakdown of each procedure. Rest assured that any laser treatments undertaken at our skin clinic, Manchester are led by our Consultant Dermatologist and CIBTAC-qualified laser practitioner.


How it works

The treatment, held at our skin clinic, involves using medical-grade laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology. The laser uses light to target an area of skin, heat it, and destroy the cells causing the problem. For example, with hair removal, the laser targets the hair follicle and prevents hair regrowth, while for those seeking to even out their skin tone, the laser breaks down unwanted pigment.


What it treats

Here at Lumiere skin clinic in Manchester, our powerful skin-rejuvenating laser treatment can help treat a number of concerns:


  • Fine lines/wrinkles and crepey/lose skin – signs of ageing are softened through stimulating the skin’s production of collagen and elastin
  • Pigmentation/sun sports – targeting areas of discolouration causes unwanted pigment to break down
  • Facial redness/thread veins – these small, spidery veins close to the surface of the skin are broken down and reabsorbed by the body
  • Acne scarring – triggers your body to kill bacteria deep in the pores


The lasers can also be used on enlarged pores, dull skin, and skin with a rough texture.
