Lasers are used in cosmetic procedures for everything from skin resurfacing to teeth whitening to liposuction to vision correction.  All lasers are either ablative or non-ablative. Ablative lasers remove the top layer of your skin, and treatments typically require some recovery time while skin heals. Non-ablative lasers are less invasive, and use heat to stimulate cells to thicken the underlying collagen resulting in improved skin tone and elasticity.

Dr. Mark's surgical skills are amazing! I was diagnosed with a BCC on the sides of my nose and the wait to see someone on the NHS was another 12 weeks.

I thought about getting the surgery for a long time, but then I finally decided to get it done (lipolaser). Although the full results show gradually (after 6 months), it was a quick and easy surgey where my body felt great after 2 days. It has only been 3 months, and I went from a size 8/10... READ MORE
