Singleton Medical and Skin Clinic are proud to offer a variety of advanced treatments to address a wide range of skin concerns. With over 10 years’ experience Dr Mark Chernoff will help you meet all your skin needs including;

Pulsed-Light (IPL)

Intense Pulsed Light therapy is used for various skin concerns, including pigmentation issues, vascular lesions, and hair removal. It works by delivering a broad spectrum of light to the skin, which targets specific problem areas.

YAG Vascular Laser

YAG lasers are commonly used to treat vascular issues such as spider veins, varicose veins, and other vascular lesions. They work by delivering laser energy to the blood vessels, causing them to coagulate and eventually be absorbed by the body.

Q-Switch Laser

Q-switched lasers are used to remove or fade tattoos, pigmented lesions, and birthmarks. They deliver short, high-intensity pulses of laser light to break down pigments without damaging the surrounding skin.

Erbium Ablative Laser

Erbium laser resurfacing is effective for treating fine lines, wrinkles, and certain types of scars. It removes thin layers of skin, which stimulates collagen production and leads to smoother, tighter skin.

Non-Ablative Resurfacing Laser

Non-ablative lasers, like fractional laser therapy, are used for skin rejuvenation. They stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture without removing the top layer of skin.

Radio-Frequency Needling

Radio-frequency needling, also known as microneedling with radiofrequency (RF), combines microneedling with the delivery of RF energy to the skin. It’s used for skin tightening, scar reduction, and wrinkle improvement.

High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)

HIFU is a non-invasive treatment that uses focused ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin. It’s often used for facial rejuvenation and addressing sagging skin.

These treatments can be effective for various skin issues, and they are performed by trained professionals. It’s important for patients to consult with a qualified practitioner to determine which treatment(s) are best suited to their specific skin concerns and goals. Additionally, safety and potential side effects should be discussed during the consultation process.

Cosmetic Services Frequently Asked Questions

Cosmetic laser treatment is a non-invasive or minimally invasive procedure that uses laser technology to address various skin concerns, such as wrinkles, scars, sun damage, and pigmentation issues.

Laser devices emit concentrated beams of light that target specific skin issues. The light energy is absorbed by the targeted area, which can help stimulate collagen production, remove damaged skin cells, or address other concerns.

Laser treatments can address a wide range of issues, including fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, vascular lesions, and unwanted hair. They can also improve overall skin texture and tone.

Laser treatments are generally safe when performed by trained professionals. However, there may be some side effects, like redness or swelling, which are typically temporary. The safety of the procedure depends on the type of laser and the individual’s skin type.

The number of sessions required varies depending on the specific treatment and the individual’s skin condition. Some procedures may require a single session, while others may require multiple sessions spaced over several weeks or months

Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves using a device with fine needles to create tiny, controlled injuries in the skin. This stimulates collagen and elastin production, which can improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of scars, wrinkles, and stretch marks.

Microneedling can cause some discomfort, but it is typically well-tolerated. Many practitioners use numbing creams to minimize any pain during the procedure.

Results can vary, but some improvement is often noticeable within a few weeks. The full benefits of microneedling may take several months to become apparent as collagen production continues.

Common side effects include redness, swelling, and mild bruising, which are typically short-lived. However, more serious side effects are rare but possible if the procedure is not performed correctly.

Microneedling is suitable for most skin types and can address various skin concerns. A consultation with a qualified provider can help determine if it’s a suitable option for an individual.

Ultrasound treatments in cosmetics typically refer to ultrasound-based therapies that use sound waves to target and treat various skin concerns, such as lifting and tightening.

Ultrasound devices deliver focused energy beneath the skin’s surface to stimulate collagen production and tighten the underlying tissues, leading to a lifting effect.

Ultrasound treatments are often used to lift and tighten the skin on the face and neck. They can help reduce sagging and improve overall skin elasticity.

Results can vary, but the effects of ultrasound treatments are often long-lasting. Some people may benefit from a single treatment, while others might require periodic maintenance sessions.

Side effects are typically mild and temporary, including redness and swelling. Serious risks are rare when the procedure is performed by a qualified professional.
