New, most advanced VPL system now at Cheshire Skin Clinic!

Many people are now becoming familiar with the terms laser, IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) and VPL (Variable Pulsed Light) – the latter being the newest and most sophisticated form of the science based technology that can be used to remove hair, thread veins, acne, pigment, wrinkles and various other skin conditions. The majority of the most advanced systems are actually manufactured in the UK due to the strong research and development departments that we have at our universities. One such manufacturing company has recently launched a VPL ‘Ultra Plus’ system that now comes with additional hand-pieces that enable the operator to perform high energy medical treatments that out-perform any of the ‘beauty based systems’ on the market.  This means that it is now possible to treat more severe conditions of acne and associated scarring, more stubborn hairs and thread veins. By doing this, it gives the clinical professional previously unavailable settings that can be tailor-made to suit any potential client. The UK is leading the way in the development of VPL and actually supplies the majority of it’s systems to the United States due to the exceptional levels achieved.  It is therefore essential when booking a consultation that you ask your practitioner which supplier they use as there are a myriad of cheap imitation systems on the market that do not perform to the same level of accuracy or safety. If in doubt request to see a calibration certificate for the machine which will list the date of manufacture and most recent calibration checks, plus the origin of manufacture. Dr Angie Winnington-Sharp at Cheshire Skin Clinic is proud to be one of the first clinical professionals to offer this treatment system to all of her clients - new for 2011, why delay - book today.
