Targeting common signs of ageing and scars in Manchester
Cutting-edge laser therapy can be an extremely powerful tool in rejuvenating skin for natural-looking results. At Lumiere Clinic in Manchester, we offer fractional resurfacing laser, IPL and radiofrequency treatments to target the following skin concerns:
We offer three main types of laser and light treatments in Manchester:
RESURFACE for lines, wrinkles and scars: Er: YAG fractional laser targets both the superficial (epidermis) and deep (dermis) layers of the skin. It stimulates cell renewal on the epidermis, which smoothens out the texture of the skin. It also targets the dermis by promoting the relaying of collagen. This treatment can improve skin texture, reduce static lines, wrinkles and acne scarring.*
REBRIGHT for discoloration: 585 IPL technology treats hyperpigmentation, vascular outbreaks and areas of redness.* This treatment can improve discoloration on the skin such as redness, dilated veins, freckles and sun spots. *
REMODEL for firmness: Radiofrequency causes micro-vibrations (dermal heating) within the skin to help produce new collagen and elastin. This leads to a subtle lifting and tightening effect for skin that has lost its firmness.* This treatment is useful for areas that have lost its firmness and tend to sag such as around the eyes and jawline.
It is always recommended to have a consultation first to discuss what you want to achieve and your expectations. We can then tailor them accordingly with the treatments that we have. Sometimes, a combination of treatments may be required to achieve best results. The appropriate treatment options will be discussed, along with the potential benefits and risks to ensure you are fully informed before going ahead with any procedure.
Our Consultant Dermatologist and laser practitioner are highly experienced in the field of laser treatments and handpicked 3JUVE® for its ability to tailor treatment to each individual patient for optimum results. In addition, each platform within the technology is known for its superior and natural-looking results.
This procedure takes less than a hour. Mild improvement is usually seen after the first session. Depending on your skin concerns, our Consultant Dermatologist and laser practitioner may recommend a course of 3-6 treatments to achieve the best results. Treatment is usually carried out every 2-6 weeks.
A course of treatments (3-6) may be needed to achieve best results. The results are longer-term and usually last up to 12 months or longer when you complete your full treatment course.
Immediately post-treatment, most people will look like they have a mild to moderate degree of sunburn. Some swelling can occur. The skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. Some flakiness and bronzing could occur. Full healing may take up to a week to achieve brighter and clearer skin.
*Individual results and reactions may vary.
Your skin could be a little red after treatment and depending on which technologies are utilised some bronzing and flakiness could occur.

“After suffering from a build up of congestion and open pores. I had a resurface treatment to get clearer, smother looking skin with tighter pores. After my initial consultation and patch test. I was treated with resurface. Immediately after the treatment my skin was red and warm and felt like mild sunburn. This lasted for the rest of that day but by the following day had disappeared. By day 3-4 I experienced some dryness and my face felt tight and flakey. By day 6 I was left with flawless skin with tighter pores. My make up sits so much better on my skin now and it was well worth the few days of dryness and flakiness.”
