Age spots are the result of sun damage. They occur when we expose ourselves to too much sunshine, without having first applied a high enough factor of sun cream. Lots of sunbathing when we’re young can lead to age spots when we’re older, as they tend to occur as our skin matures and our collagen production begins to reduce.
Thread veins are usually found on areas like the legs and mostly appear on any area of the body beneath the heart, but facial thread veins are incredibly common on the face too. Whether across the cheeks or streaking down the nose, a lot of people think that their facial thread veins prematurely age them. They may be associated with ageing skin, but thread veins are increasingly common in those in their 20s and 30s. Nevertheless, many people choose to have them treated and removed, but how do you remove facial thread veins?
The average woman will shave just under 8000 times in her lifetime! This is a figure that has been cited in numerous surveys, but even if it was just half the amount, that’s still an awful lot of time spent shaving. Just think of all the other things you could be doing instead! Wouldn’t you like to find a way to massively reduce the amount of hair you produce, so you can free up your time to spend it more productively? Laser hair removal is a very effective method of hair removal. It involves using a laser to damage the hair follicles through heating them, so that they can no longer produce hairs and in doing so, it will provide you with permanent hair reduction. You could potentially reduce your hair regrowth by up to 80%.
Science poorly understands rosacea, but it remains an extremely common skin condition that mainly affects the face. It results in redness, swelling, pimples, and small and superficial blood vessels that become visible on the surface of the skin. Often the nose, cheeks, forehead, and chin are the most commonly affected areas of the face. Sadly, there is no cure because this is a recurring skin condition, though it can be managed efficiently with specialist treatments. We think it’s important to understand this skin condition before even considering treatment, because this way you will know what to expect, how to avoid flare-ups in the future, and how to tailor your lifestyle to best suit your skin.
For the majority of us, when we think of Botox, we think of tighter faces and younger looking skin. And for the most part, this is completely accurate. Botox injections are an incredibly popular anti-wrinkle treatment, for those who are either cautious of developing wrinkles or those who already have prominent signs of aging and wish to soften their appearance.
Many people are exceptionally proud of and love their tattoos. Whether it has sentimental value, or you just still have an appreciation for the design. However, some can have immense regret for their ink. The tattoo may have been an impulsive decision, one made whilst very intoxicated, a reminder of a relationship you’re no longer in or it may represent a set of ideals and values that you no longer hold. For these people, their tattoo is a constant reminder of the person they used to be. It’s these people that tattoo removal would benefit.
Age spots are the result of an excess production of melanin or skin pigment. We don’t always know why age spots develop, but they commonly appear in areas exposed to the sun. They can leave you feeling self-conscious, especially if you feel that they prematurely age you. The Private Skin Laser Clinic in London is here to offer you a solution in the form on laser age spots removal.
Getting a tattoo can feel almost like a rite of passage for some people, especially when they’re young, feeling impulsive, or are particularly fond of a certain art style or design. Some tattoo recipients remain fond of their tattoos for the rest of their lives, happy with the artist’s handy work or proud of the part of their lives it has come to symbolise. These people need not consider laser tattoo removal.
Our skin is our body’s largest organ and will physically represent us and our lifestyle for the rest of our lives, but what about if we suffer from rosacea? Does this skin condition jeopardise our largest organ’s health? Contrary to what some people may believe, rosacea doesn’t actually affect the health of our skin, but it can become uncomfortable at times and can appear embarrassing or unsightly.

Rosacea is a skin condition that has lots of myths associated with it. It is believed that 1 in 10 people in the UK suffers with it to some degree, but despite its ubiquity, few people understand why it occurs, or how serious it can become when left untreated.
Here at our North London clinic we treat rosacea with laser treatment. This will improve the condition of your skin and give you more confidence in your appearance. Rosacea flares up when your skin is exposed to whatever triggers flushing; the most common symptom of rosacea. It might be hot or cold temperatures, skin care products to which you have a reaction, or certain foods.
If you’ve ever had a tattoo you now regret, you’re certainly not alone. According to numerous surveys, approximately a third of people who have had a tattoo go on to regret it at some point. Perhaps you had the name of an ex-partner written on your arm at a moment when it felt like you’d be together forever? Or, perhaps your design depicts a former club of which you once a member, or interest that now feels dated.
You wouldn’t believe the amount of hasty, spontaneous tattoos we see, all of which represented something meaningful at the time of their application, but may have taken just minutes for the wearer to realise that their embarrassing ink is permanent!
