Laser Tattoo Removal
Using one of the most advanced removal systems within the industry, The Q-Switched ND: YAG laser works by emitting light pulses into the skin, breaking down the ink and dispersing through the body’s natural elimination system to achieve results. This machine has been specifically designed to adjust to each individual needs to ensure best results are received as quickly and as pain free as possible. Patch test required.
Fungal Toe Nail

IPL Machine – Laser Hair Removal / Thread Vein Removal / Skin Pigmentation Removal / Acne
Using an IPL laser that uses filters to provide a range of wavelengths to achieve different results. IPL can selectively target wavelengths to treat Thread veins, Acne, Hair Removal, Skin Pigmentation & Skin Rejuvenation.
The laser light is absorbed by the melanin in the hair and converts to heat, this travels to the base of the hair (the follicle) and damages it, making it unable to support further hair growth. On average clients will expect to see significant results within 1-2 sessions. Usually treatments are required every 4-6 weeks depending upon the areas. A course of 6-10 treatments is advised to achieve permanent results – there is no way of speeding this process up with any machine, this is down to the human hair cycle, if all of the hair was in the anagen stage (where it needs to be for a successful treatment) our hair would all shed at the same time also! ❌ THIS TREATMENT DOES NOT REQUIRE YOU TO GROW THE HAIR ❌ Without any medical contra indications results are expected on average at 75-90% permanent hair reduction – Hormonal changes such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, menopause can trigger dormant hair follicles so it would simply be a top up treatment on these few hairs. At CLN Clinics, a guarantee is offered to any client without medical contra indications to ensure results are obtained from each course.
Thread Vein Removal
Thread veins are vascular lesions also known as Spider veins, thin, red vessels sitting just below the surface of the skin caused by a variety of lifestyle choices such as age, genetics, lifestyle choices such as smoking, alcohol & pregnancy. Stress & pressure can also contribute to the causes. They most commonly affect the nose, cheeks & chin and legs, while they usually don’t pose a medical problem, they can cause people self-esteem worry. This treatment works by using the IPL machine to heat the capillaries causing the blood to coagulate in the vessels and disperse. It is detrimental to this treatment that no sun exposure has been present for at least 6 weeks prior to treatment & a patch test must be successfully carried out prior to treatment.
IPL can also treat sun damage including age spots, freckles & hyper pigmentation by disturbing the melanocytes with the IPL wavelengths, this causes the pigmentation to lift to the skins surface and slough away. A course of treatments may be required on a 2-3 weekly basis.
The IPL laser which uses light converted to heat to destroy the acne in several ways works by destroying bacteria on the surface of the skin, the laser also prevents over-production of sebum and helps reduce inflammation by shrinking the glands. IPL also has a skin rejuvenation function which stimulates collagen production reducing the appearance of scarring and improving skin texture.
Carbon Laser Facial
The treatment is carried out using a Q-Switched ND: YAG laser. A carbon paste is applied to the skin and left to absorb by the outer dead skin cells, this will also absorb any excess oils from the skin, preventing future breakouts. Using the laser to then vaporise the carbon, the past will disappear removing the skin cells from the skin. The treatment has an immediate effect as a gentle laser peel which is perfect to freshen up your skin complexion – if you have a special event such as a wedding and wish to achieve a glowing appearance.
This treatment can also be used for collagen induction therapy as the collagen & elastin fibres will regenerate, this will continue to reduce fine lines & wrinkles. Treatments are required at least 2 weeks apart.

This treatment improves the skin texture for vibrant, even skin. There is no downtime to this treatment and clients can continue normal activities immediately. The laser feels like a tingly sensation very similar to pins and needles and is not to be confused with a painful treatment.
