Laser – the King of cosmetic treatments?

laserBotox and dermal fillers get a lot of press, but when it comes to all-rounders in the aesthetic world, nothing quite beats the laser.

These days, laser systems come with a variety of different platforms and handpieces, meaning that not only can we treat a number of different problems from one laser system, but we can do so safely and highly effectively.

Here is just a small selection of the different laser treatments we offer here at Dr Joney De Souza Aesthetic Clinic in Mayfair.

Laser skin rejuvenation

Our Cynosure Elite+ laser can be used to improve the overall texture of your skin, stimulating collagen and removing unwanted pigmentation and redness, leaving you looking fresher and younger than before.

Each treatment session lasts around 30 minutes and for effective, lasting results, around four to six treatments are needed.

Laser hair removal

Here at Dr Joney De Souza Aesthetic Clinic, permanent hair reduction using our Cynosure Elite+ laser is one of the most popular treatments we offer. The laser beam effectively destroys the hair follicle, and overall the treatment can reduce hair production by around 80 per cent.

Each treatment session takes between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on the size of the area to be treated, and four to six treatments are usually needed to get the best results.

Laser vein removal

Leg veins can be both unsightly and uncomfortable. We can use our Cynosure Elite+ laser to remove these veins quickly, effectively and – best of all – painlessly. This treatment incurs no downtime, so you can return to work on the same day if necessary.

A treatment session lasts between 20 and 30 minutes and results are permanent, although you may need to return for further treatments if there is a significant number of veins that need to be treated.

Is lithium the answer to staying younger for longer?

Recent research has shown that the mood-stabilising drug lithium has potential to prolong life, by inhibiting a particular protein molecule. Fruit flies also have the protein molecule, known as GSK-3, and an experiment conducted on these flies has...
