Sports massage uses a variety of pressure (often deeper, more intense and focused than in conventional massage) to speed up recovery time and help prevent injury. This treatment is suitable for many types of pain and injury, not just those caused by sports. Because each sport uses the muscle groups in different ways, a qualified sports massage therapist will have a sound knowledge of the muscular and skeletal systems, and tailor the treatment for each individual athlete. A sports massage has many benefits for an athlete, anyone doing regular exercise or anyone who is experiencing muscular pain. It can help:
The Dermapen™ is a revolutionary micro-needling device which aims to tighten, lift and rejuvenate skin. This treatment has a superior effect on collagen and elastin rejuvenation. The Multi-speed and adjusta¬ble needle depth gives effectively treatment in hard-to-reach places including around the eyes. When the needle tip makes contact with the skin, the needles create tiny puncture in the skin’s surface, causing micro-trauma, and inducing an immune response, and subsequently, the creation of new healthy collagen. The punctures also act as micro-channels that carry topical nutrients used during the treatment deep into skin layers for an increased effect. Because the needles oscillate as quickly as they do, the tip of the Dermapen™ easily *glides* across the skin, without catching or causing any dermal tearing.
The Dermapen™ can visibly improve the appearance of:

Laser hair removal is used as a generic term, however, surprisingly, not all laser hair removal systems actually use a laser instead they use an IPL which stands for Intense Pulsed Light. Generally laser or IPL treatments target the hair and the light waves attract to the melanin in the hair and travel down the hair and destroy the follicle. This results in the hair growing more slowly. Lasers target the hair itself whereas IPL will cause an umbrella effect of light that also hits the surrounding skin making the treatment more comfortable and effective.

The Vein Away by PhysioSKIN™ system is the widely acclaimed device that is used to treat thread and spider veins. The device has been developed with help from leading vascular surgeon and thread vein specialist, Dr Brian Newman who has been a world leader in the field for over 35 years. The Vein Away is also ideal to treat cherry angiomas, skin tags and rosacea. Utilising the principle of thermoesclerosis, an ultra-fast radio frequency of 27.12 MHz sends a pulse from the tip of a filament for precision and accuracy. The frequency used is controlled in short cycles as opposed to other frequencies, where the pattern of heat is up to three times higher, which can cause irritation and damage to the skin. Vein Away uses less energy and gives better results than other thermoaution devices.
Q-switched ND Yag lasers are considered by dermatologists to be the most advanced and effective way of removing multi-coloured tattoos and pigmentation with consistently predictable results and little chance of side effects.
The most common symptom of a fungal nail infection is the nail becoming thickened and discoloured: white, black, yellow or green. As the infection progresses the nail can become brittle, with pieces breaking off. If left untreated, the skin can become inflamed and painful underneath and around the nail. There may also be white or yellow patches on the nail bed or scaly skin next to the nail. There is usually no pain or other bodily symptoms, unless the disease is severe. People with onychomycosis may experience significant psychosocial problems due to the appearance of the nail
