Tattoo Removal

Tattoo Regret! You have come to the right place. With the use of 3rd generation ND Yag lasers, tattoo removal has never been easier, faster and more affordable.

Using an ND Yag, this means you will only require up to 6 treatments. Less treatments than you would need with an ordinary Q switched laser, so you will save both time and money. There is no safer, faster and cheaper method of tattoo removal.
Most of our clients have their tattoos removed in 4-6 treatments, with some small tattoos being removed in 3-4 sessions. In comparison, the same tattoos would take anywhere from 10-12 sessions.

In laser tattoo removal, laser light is used to break down the ink particles into small enough fragments that can be flushed out naturally by your body.

Laser tattoo removal has long been considered the most effective method, compared to chemical and abrasion based treatments.
Traditional (Q-switched) lasers used for tattoo removal rely predominately on photothermal (heat) action delivered to the pigment of the tattoo and the surrounding tissue. The ultra-short pulse of energy of ND Yag laser goes beyond the photothermal action of a traditional laser by creating an intense photomechanical effect that shatters the target ink into tiny particles that are easily eliminated by the body, while leaving the surrounding tissue unheated.

Every tattoo responds differently due to a number of variables. There are variations in ink colours and their chemical compositions, depth and density of ink placement, skin type and individual immune system factors. Predicting how many treatments any particular tattoo will require is an educated guess.

During your consultation, your nurse will make an estimate of the number of tattoo removal sessions needed to remove your tattoo. In some cases, a black ink tattoo can be removed in as few as 2-3 sessions (and some amateur ones even in a single session). Recalcitrant tattoos can take up to 6-8x sessions – but those tattoos would take up to 20x sessions (or could not be removed at all) with older Q-switched lasers.

Treatment duration depends on size of tattoo to be treated. Treatment can be as short as a few minutes to over an hour for a very large tattoo. The treatment itself is a series of laser pulses that are fired rapidly next to each other in a pattern along the tattoo. The spot size is 2-10mm, depending on the size and location of the tattoo. During laser treatment, your tattoo may turn white briefly. It then swells somewhat and may turn red, but this usually lasts only a few hours. It is important to keep that tattoo covered with ointment and a bandage for the first day. Usually, it feels like a mild sunburn and does not hurt unless rubbed against.

The discomfort of laser tattoo removal is often described as a “rubber band snapping the skin” but can vary from client to client. We do our utmost to minimize any pain or discomfort possible. We offer cold compresses to put on the tattoo during treatments to minimise the discomfort.

Between your treatments, it is important to keep the tattoo covered from the sun to prevent hyper pigmentation (darkening). You will receive detailed instructions during your appointment.

Typical aftercare instructions include:

Do not lather treatment area with soap – use water only when cleaning area treatment area must be covered 5-7 days post treatment Do not shave the treated area if crusting is evident Sun and sunbed exposure should be avoided for at least 6weeks post treatment, as this increases the risk of burning and possibly pigmentary changes. A sun block (SPF 30 or greater), or high protection factor is advised thereafter during treatment intervals Clients are instructed to avoid putting perfumed or alcohol based products on the treated area until the area is fully healed Clients are also instructed to avoid injury to the treated area, particularly through sporting activity, swimming or hot baths / showers, for a minimum of 48 hours after the treatment session Clients are instructed to contact the clinic team immediately should any adverse skin reactions occur, or if they have any concerns relating to treatment Avoid heat treatments such as saunas/steam rooms etc for 7 days post treatment

Your nurse will explain the aftercare instructions during your consultation and after every treatment.

Laser Hair Removal – Treatment Details

How it works?

Light is absorbed by the melanin (the pigment in the hair follicle). The light energy heats the pigment and effectively destroys the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding cell. The laser is placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released, which targets many follicles simultaneously. The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area of the skin and the process is repeated until the entire area is covered. Treatment of a small area will only take 10 minutes, whereas a full body treatment will take up to three hours. A course of laser treatments is usually required at 4 week intervals to follow the hair growth cycle. Treatment will leave your skin feeling smooth, soft and free from painful in-growing hairs.

We believe its important to review your progress and ensure you know how to maintain your hair-free skin. That’s why we conduct a thorough consultation and test patches before you start your treatments and a review at your 4th treatment.

So what's the process? Well, our experienced nurses will explain fully, you will be required to shave the area to be treated either the day before or on the morning of the treatment and provide you with goggles to protect your eyes. Cooling gel will be applied to the treated area to soothe the skin. Few people experience pain during treatment, however some may experience light stinging or tingling during the session. Depending on the area being treated, lasering could take between 15 and 45 minutes. The area will need to be treated every 4-6 weeks for around 8 months to achieve the best results. The skin may appear red and/or swollen immediately afterwards, however this should reduce over 24 hours.

Although very safe, it is important to resolve any skin conditions and to let any sun tan fade before treatment. It is also sensible to protect the skin from sunlight as it will be highly sensitive. Evolution Skin And Beauty Clinic can treat all colours of hair and skin type.

Laser Hair Removal For Men

If you are among an ever-growing group of men who are looking for laser hair removal treatments, you’ve come to the right place. We offer a full range of permanent hair removal treatments for men including Beard, Back, Shoulders and Chest areas. We offer the most affordable, clinic quality laser hair removal treatments in the UK, so look no further and join the thousands of men who have had laser hair removal with us.

Male grooming is now very predominant in modern man, but when it comes to laser hair removal men could easily think it's a step too far. In reality though, there's no reason why they shouldn't get the same long-lasting, no-hassle benefits as females.

One of the main reasons for laser hair removal treatment being ideal for men is that it works equally well across the entire body. From a few unwanted tufts to an entire back job, laser treatment is efficient and effective. Our clinic offers a tiered pricing structure, meaning you aren't wasting any cash when you want a specific treatment.

Laser treatment is effectively pain free, with mild discomfort the worst you are likely to succeed. The lasers used in hair removal treatment are precision focused so that they can land a fatal blow to the hair follicle without damaging the skin. Our NDYag lasers can treat all hair types and colours.

How often will I need a treatment?

You must have the treatment on a regular basis to get the maximum benefit. We treat every 4 weeks, most people require between 4-6 sessions, in order to cover all cycles of the hair growth.

What happens after treatment?

You may have some redness in the skin; this is completely normal and generally settles within 24 hours. Protecting your skin from the sun is essential to avoid any darkening caused by increased pigment in the skin called hyper-pigmentation. 99.9% Aloa Vera  gel should be applied to the skin following treatment and should continue to be used for the first few days following treatment.

Thread and Spider Veins and Pigmentation

Remove unwanted blood vessels without surgery

Thread veins and capillaries (fine blue and red blood vessels) are extremely common, sometimes embarrassing and mostly affect the face and legs.

Superficial veins, like thread/spider veins, can be treated extremely effectively with laser treatment.          

The Nd:YAG laser heats the  blood vessels coagulating/clotting the blood and destroys the function of the vessel.

This process is perfectly safe as other healthy veins will supply blood to the treated area and the body will clear the dead tissue in the same way as it clears a bruise. This is a non invasive treatment for veins 1-3 mm in size.

Up to three treatments may be required, depending on the extent of the blemishes, although one session may be enough in some cases, leaving your skin feeling smooth and blemish-free. 

Treatment of this kind can remove:
. Thread veins
. Spider veins, capillaries
. Vascular lesions, angiomas
. Rosacea

There is no downtime with this treatment.

Active Acne and Acne Scarring

We understand how much acne can affect your life and specifically, your self confidence. Acne is most common in adolescents and teenagers but can appear for the first time in the mid-twenties or even later. It can be very difficult to treat successfully with topical creams and gels or antibiotics, and can have devastating effects on confidence and self-esteem.

The Problem

We all have lots of small glands just below the surface of the skin called sebaceous glands. These glands produce a natural oil called sebum, which helps to keep the skin smooth and supple. When too much sebum is produced it causes a build up of oil in the hair follicles which creates the ideal environment for a bacterium called propionibacterium acnes to grow. This can occur all over the body including the face, neck, back (sometimes referred to as 'bacne') and chest.

It is this bacteria that cause the inflammation and redness associated with acne. In severe cases cysts will develop beneath the surface of the skin, and if they rupture this can cause acne scarring.

Evolution Skin Clinic offers a laser acne treatment protocol that provides a truly comprehensive solution to the problem of acne. Our precisely controlled Nd:YAG laser light safely penetrates into skin to effectively target overactive sebaceous glands and to reduce the risk of developing new acne inflammation.

For improving the appearance of acne scars, we offer laser treatment based on a precise and gentle skin resurfacing procedure in which an Er:YAG laser beam is absorbed by the top micro-layers of the skin to vaporize scarred tissue and stimulate the production of new collagen in the dermis.

Fast results, Without Side-Effects

For active acne, our laser treatment reduces acne inflammation through photoselective absorption and controlled heating effects. Our high powered Nd:YAG laser safely penetrates the skin to an optimal treatment depth to thermally and selectively destroy overactive sebaceous glands.

In addition to its thermal penetration effects, the Nd:YAG acne laser treatment also accelerates the healing process and stimulates collagen remodeling, an important step in the long-term treatment of acne.

Gentle & Effective Acne Scar Revision

For treating problematic acne scars,  Our YAG laser wavelength is ideal for gentle ablative scar revision. The Er:YAG laser safely and effectively provides the minimal penetration depth required for light resurfacing of acne-scarred skin, helping to improve skin texture and tone. Unlike chemical peels and dermabrasion, laser skin resurfacing allows the penetration depth to be precisely controlled. The laser gently vaporizes micron-thin layers of the acne-scarred surface to reveal healthy, undamaged skin below. Laser resurfacing is a fast, safe and simple procedure.

Laser Skin Rejuvenation

This rejuvenation treatment is designed to produce younger and healthier looking skin – ideal for reducing the visible signs of ageing, exposure to the sun, blemishes, blotching and acne.
How the treatments work

Light energy from the laser helps to gradually plump up your skin to fill out shallow or superficial scars or fine lines leaving it with a healthier and more youthful look. Treatment takes around 5 to 10 minutes. The skin may appear red or slightly swollen immediately after treatment, but this should disappear within 24 hours.

Bi-Polar Skin Tightening

About Non-Surgical Anti-ageing Wrinkle Reduction and Skin Tightening

Bipolar and Tripolar RF technology offer new scientific development in body sculpting, anti-ageing and skin tightening treatments.

High radio frequency waves permeate epidermis and take effect on the collagen-rich dermal tissue directly which makes water molecules in the skin move to and fro.

The move produces controllable heat and results in contraction of collagen, generation of new collagen and dermal remodelling.

The treatment is very effective in improving the texture and overall appearance of your skin.

Conditions that can be treated include:

Static wrinkles: These wrinkles are visible at all times and do not change in appearance with facial movements.
Dynamic wrinkles: These are expression lines that may appear as folds when the skin is not moving, and deepen with facial movements or expressions.

Loss of skin tone: Weakening of the supportive skin structure (collagen and elastin fibers) that result in a loss of skin firmness, or the development of cellulite.
How it works

Radio Frequency

Heat generated by RF waves shrinks the bundle of collagen under the skin. The collagen becomes shorter and the skin tightens. The body response in that the collagen will be gradually healed, renewed and even more collagen will be produced. The skin tightens and the overall look is improved.

Radio Frequency regenerates collagen, tightening dermal tissue and skin creating a smooth and glowing complexion.

Carbon Skin Rejuvenation

What is carbon laser skin rejuvenation?

Carbon laser skin rejuvenation is the process of making the skin look and feel firmer by the application of a carbon powder which is then removed with a laser.

How does it work?

A fine carbon powder is applied to the area to be treated. This carbon powder has the ability to absorb dirt from within the pores. It can also act to reduce the inflammation of acne and also exfoliate the skin. Once the powder has been applied, a laser is passed over the surface of the skin. The laser breaks down the carbon powder, taking with it any contaminants that it has absorbed. As this is a thermal treatment, the heat produced from the destruction of the carbon powder has an added benefit of stimulating the collagen in the skin, leaving skin plumper, glowing with diminished fine lines (wrinkles).

What can I expect from this treatment?

We would expect you to see a reduction in pore size, a more even skin tone, improved skin radiance, a reduction in fine lines and also, firmer feeling skin.

Does this treatment hurt?

This treatment does not hurt. The process of breaking down the carbon powder does create a small amount of heat but this is not uncomfortable.

Cavitation

Non-Surgical Fat and Cellulite reduction

Cavitation, or Non surgical Laser Lipo, is a revolutionary treatment for the removal of excess fatty tissue in areas that are normally resistant to dieting and physical exercise.

The treatment uses an ultrasound cavitation effect, to create thousands of micro air bubbles around the lipocyte (fat cell) membranes. The ultrasonic waves penetrate deep into the subcutaneous fat and this non-invasive treatment just melts away fat from those stubborn areas. The fat deposits are simply absorbed by the liver and disposed of naturally. The fat deposits are simply absorbed by the liver and disposed of naturally. It is a great way to sculpt your body in a series of treatments that will reduce centimeters and give you great results. The aim is to permanently remove unwanted fat in selected problem areas.

How it works

By means of a very specific resonant frequency, the bubbles will cause pressure around the fat cells. When the pressure reaches the right tension against the lipocytes (fat cell), the lipocyte's membrane will break up instantly.

The low frequency Ultra Sound technology allows a predetermined amount of energy to be focused onto the subcutaneous adipose tissue.

As the ultra sonic waves converge towards the targeted area, they cumulate at a certain point and produce the so called cavitation effect leading to the mechanical breaking of the cellular membranes and the release in the inter cellular fluid of the stored Triglycerides which are rapidly metabolised. The broken lipocytes will then be absorbed and metabolized out of the human body by the lymphatic system. Each treatment between 15-20 minute sessions with no pain, no cuts and amazing results.

The number of treatments required is determined by how much fat needs to be taken off.

Non Invasive Liposuction

Non Invasive Ultrasonic Liposuction Slimming

What is it?

Ultrasonic liposuction is used to restyle your body rather than directly reduce weight. We all know the difficulty of losing fat in stubborn areas such as ‘love handles’, lower abdomen or outer thighs. Ultrasonic is ideal for these targeted areas, helping to smooth contours and reshape your figure.

Areas where Ultrasonic Liposuction can help are:

The benefits of non invasive, non surgical Liposuction

For those who have lost weight through diet and exercise but still have areas where fat seems impossible to shift, liposuction could be the answer. The benefits that result from ultrasonic will depend from patient to patient, however common benefits reported after ultrasonic liposuction

Less body fat, Improved body shape, Enhanced self-confidence and self-esteem Ability to wear clothes that were previously unsuitable Feeling that your body is now in proportion The method used at Evolution Skin Clinic is not a liposuction as such but it works as such as it reduces the number of fat cells in the body without the inconveniences or complications of surgery.

The equipment has a very powerful high frequency convergent ultrasound which acts directly on the localized fat breaking the membranes of the adipose cells. This happens because of the mechanical effect caused by the merging of the focalized ultrasound beams which provoke enough vibration to disrupt fat cell membrane without damaging the skin, blood vessels or peripheral nerves.

This action causes the fat to drop in the lymphatic system which will carry it through the liver which will enable the fats to be eliminated through the colon.

Noticeable results in problem areas can be seen in 4 – 6 sessions. In between sessions you should follow a low-carb diet, drink plenty of mineral or spring water, avoid alcohol for 4 days after treatment and get plenty of exercise to encourage lymph flow, which supports the removal of fat cells from the body.

Everyone is different but averagely, one procedure can remove up to a pound of fat or 1.5 inches of the area being treated. The number of sessions all depends on how many inches you want to loose. A course is usually between minimum 6 to maximum 20 sessions in any one area.

Ultrasonic Liposuction can help with these areas of problematic fat that, despite dieting and exercise, you have been unable to trim down. Remember – ultrasonic liposuction is best used in combination with a sensible and healthy lifestyle!

Ultrasonic liposuction may be carried out on both men and women whose fat is distributed unevenly. It is not a method of reducing weight, rather a way to remove fatty deposits which persist despite a healthy and active life.

How does it Work?

Ultrasonic liposuction uses gentle focused ultrasound waves to remove fat cells permanently. Once removed, these cells will not re grow. Ultrasound waves painlessly disrupt the walls of cells containing fat found below the skin within the sub-cutaneous fat layer, while other tissues such as blood vessels and nerves are unharmed.

As fat cells are not able to multiply, once remove they will not return helping to maintain a long-term fat reduction.

(In other words, if you take “love handles” away once, you can forget them forever. the fat cells will not return or re grow, so that is a permanent effect. However, the length of time that the body shaping will last for is completely in your hands. How much you eat and how much exercise you take will also affect your long-term body shape. So if you take in more calories than you use, you weight and fat will increase and the permanent removal of fat cells from your treatment will be hidden by your weight gain.

The good news though is that you can use the opportunity of choosing to have ultrasonic liposuction to commit to eating sensibly and performing activities, such as exercise and sports, that get your heart beating and muscles working. This can have the effect of enhancing your body reshaping even further. Please remember that having ultrasonic liposuction is not a license to eat more or exercise less, and the long-term results are in your hands.

Where does the fat go?

This is the most common question we get asked. The simple answer is that all the fat that is released heads via the bloodstream through your veins and lymphatic vessels to end up in your liver where the processing procedure commences.

The effect is as if you had just eaten a very fatty meal, except that in this case all that fat came from yourself – your stomach, hips, thighs, or whichever part of your body you had chosen to be sculpted into a new shape. Some of the fat will be used for energy instead of a meal and burned off as calories. Some other fat will be stored in the normal way and laid down again but this time evenly throughout your body and not back at the treated target areas.

In this way, ultrasonic liposuction (in the same way as surgical liposuction) is not designed to drop your weight, but restyle your figure into a more desirable shape.

Here at The Evolution Skin Clinic we can include an effective addition to your body reshaping with the faster removal of the fatty cells, a combines course of Cavitation with Laser Liposuction.

Frequently asked Questions

Does the treatment hurt?

Ultrasonic liposuction is a pain-free procedure and requires no anesthetic.

What are the advantages of ultrasonic over surgical liposuction?

How long does the treatment take?
Each treatment takes 30 minutes per area.

How soon will I see results?
Often results are visible with the first session but will improve further over the course of 4 treatments. We will assess the final result 3 weeks after completing the six sessions. Maximum results require at least 8 treatment sessions per area.

Will the effect be long-lasting?
The fat cells treated with ultrasonic liposuction will not return or re-grow, so that is a permanent effect. However, the length of time that the body shaping will last for is really in your hands.

How much you eat and how much exercise you take will also affect your long-term body shape. So if you take in more calories than you use, you weight and fat will increase and the permanent removal of fat cells from your treatment will be hidden by your weight gain.

What about future weight gain with fat moving to other areas?
This is a common misunderstanding. Following ultrasonic liposuction, should you experience weight gain or loss, it will tend to be proportionately distributed over your entire body. Once you have fat removed it is gone. Assuming a healthy lifestyle of proper diet and exercise, it will not return.

Are there any side effects?
Ultrasonic liposuction appears to be an extremely safe treatment as it is non-surgical and non-invasive.

What happens after treatment?
You will need to avoid alcohol for 4 days after each treatment because your liver will be busy processing the fat that has been broken down by the ultrasonic liposuction therapy. Also try to drink plenty of water and keep yourself hydrated.
