Am I suitable for treatment?

All skin types can be treated; however, if you have recently been in the sun, we advise waiting for two weeks. We do not treat women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

How many treatments will I need?

3-5 treatments are usually required, with a space of 4 weeks between each treatment; however, the number of treatments will be discussed during your consultation. An annual treatment is a good way to maintain your results. There is a requirement for you to use a good SPF of 30-50 for the duration of your treatment period.

Are there any side effects?

If you are being treated for pigment, it will darken for a few days before breaking up and reducing in colour so plan your treatments around any social events. You may also get mild bruising, although this is uncommon, and some mild swelling. Please tell us of any medication you may be taking as some can make you more sensitive to sunlight and put you at risk of getting a small burn.

I'm fair skinned and have always loved the sun and now I'm forty five, it's showing in my skin and I have little red veins and big brown freckles over my nose, cheeks and across my chest. I went to see Springwell after a recommendation from a friend and it was explained how the treatment would help to rejuvenate my skin and make it look smoother. I had one treatment on Friday and it felt warm but not uncomfortable. I can't wait to see the results now.
