At Skin+IQ we use Candela medical to treat our clients for a multitude of skin concerns. Using ND: Yag IPL Laser we are able to penetrate to certain depths and, using laser skin resurfacing, help treat thick facial veins, spider veins, leg veins and even nail fungus.
The ND: Yag laser is specifically designed to be absorbed and target deeper levels of the dermis to treat vascular lesions by destroying the blood vessel walls and in turn making the blood coagulate. This is then absorbed by the body and removed.
Q. Is the treatment painful?
A. You will experience some discomfort during the laser treatment, however this will subside quickly once the area has been treated.
Q. How many treatments will I need for vascular lesions?
A.Depending on the individual lesions will depend on how many sessions you require to have. You will be able to see results from as little as one session but your therapist may require you to come back for further sessions to get the desired results.
Q. How many treatments will I need for nail fungus?
A. You will need a minimum of 3 sessions once a week and a final top up session after one month
Q. Is the treatment safe?
A. Yes, Candela is a medical graded machine and we always ask our clients to come in for a free consultation before we treat to ensure that they are suitable for the treatment.
Q. What aftercare is required following ND Yag treatments?
A. Avoid Sun exposure for a minimum of 4 weeks and ensure you are wearing SPF. We recommend Heliocare which we stock in clinic.
Q. Is there any downtime?
A. Yes, we say usually a minimum of 48 hours downtime following this treatment.
I've visited the clinic on two separate occasions now, and each time had a really positive experience. I met with both Dr Vidal and Alise, both of which treated me with great care and made sure I fully understood my treatment and answered any questions I had. I highly recommend.
Morpheus 8 Facial that was excellent. The setting the staff and the actual treatment itself was 10/10
I had the most wonderful experience. I had Morpheus 8 Treatment done by lovely Mariah who was extremely knowledgeable and professional. For a treatment that it’s supposed to be a little uncomfortable I had hardly any discomfort and my recovery time was extremely short!! I highly recommend Skin IQ. Ana Hijazi
I just had my first Morpheus 8 treatment last week and I want to send a big thanks to my wonderful Nurse Ida! She has amazing knowledge and was explaining everything and calming me down. After having numbing cream on for around an hour the treatment was completely bearable. The redness was almost gone by the evening and no noticeable swelling. Some dry patches on my neck for a few days but otherwise no downtime for me. A week after my treatment I can already feel a bit more tightening of my jowls I can’t wait for my next treatment and the final results!
