The Cheshire Skin Clinic specialises in clinical treatments for the skin, hair and body using medical and cosmetic equipment from the largest manufacturer of pulsed light systems in the world.
The principle system in use incorporates Variable Pulsed Light, VPL™. This is a technique at the forefront of the industry, which has evolved from laser technology into a more sophisticated area of expertise in order to deliver a sequence of rapid, controlled pulses of light energy to the skin for rejuvenation and improvement as well as hair removal.
Unlike other pulsed light devices available, the Ultra VPL™ allows the practitioner to select the energy, number, length and frequency of the individual pulses of light within each visible shot to suit the individual client – hence the term Variable Pulsed Light. This inherent flexibility of the system guarantees that all clients will be treated with the optimum individual settings for their skin and hair type.
Cheshire Skin Clinic VPL™ treatments are not invasive, and the unique variable pulses have been clinically proven to achieve fantastic results on a wide variety of skin imperfections and successfully treat unwanted hair. The variable pulses from the clinic’s VPL™ system use this expertly innovated light energy to perform the treatments safely and easily, with none of the discomfort of invasive and/or surgical treatments.

The Cheshire Skin Clinic’s Ultra VPL™ has been proven to effectively treat:
Thread veins, spider naevi and cherry spots – conditions where small veins and blemishes become visible on the skin’s surface.
Fine lines, wrinkles and visible pores – collagen production is the bodies way of keeping our skin looking youthful, smooth and healthy. As we age the amount of collagen in our bodies decreases as does the production of new collagen, resulting in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Unwanted hair – this is clinically proven to be removed from all parts of the face and body.
Sun/liver and age spots, as well as other unwanted areas of pigmentation – normally associated with ageing and sun damage, these area all caused by excess amounts of melanin – the pigment that determines our skin and hair colour.
Acne and acne scarring – a condition caused by excess sebum production. Sebum is an oil, which is naturally produced by the body, but excessive amounts can lead to pores being clogged and further lead to infection. Prolonged or moderate/severe acne can lead to scarring.
Other treatments – there are a variety of other treatments available using a number of different technologies, including body treatments for skin tightening, cellulite reduction and muscle strain management – please use the contact form for further enquiries.
