Time is not always kind to our skin. It begins to suffer from the effects of exposure to the sun and the elements, from the wear and tear of daily life, reduced production of collagen and as a result of our lifestyles. It loses its natural shine.


What areas can be treated?

At A&A Aesthetic clinic, we use new technology, Super Skin Rejuvenation (SSR)  using light pulses to treat conditions like acne, wrinkles, pigmentation and vascular lesions.

It can also be used wherever the skin shows signs of premature ageing.  Areas most susceptible tend to be the face, neck, hands and chest (décolletage).

How does the treatment work?

The device delivers precisely controlled strong pulses of light at specific wavelengths.  This light energy targets, and is absorbed by, the pigment melanin (targeting freckles, sun-spots, age-spots and uneven pigmentation) and haemoglobin (targeting broken capillaries, thread veins and redness).  The SSR technology is designed to selectively treat only these pigments so the surrounding skin remains unharmed.

Is it safe and does it hurt?

The device delivers little or no trauma to surrounding tissue, offering pain free and safer treatments maximising client suitability. It works by gentle & incremental heating process, more efficient and pain free than the conventional IPL/laser devices, delivering better results in the treatment of permanent hair reduction.

Are there any side effects?

SHR is recommended for all skin types and all year round due to it’s unique heat delivering system, however possible side effects could include:

  • Excessive discomfort
  • Redness/heat in the treated area (usually resolves within a few hours to days)
  • Burns or crusting of the treated area (usually resolves within 2 weeks)
  • Swelling of the treated area

Other side effects include darkening of pigmented areas (this is normal on treated lesions and will disappear along with the lesion after a week or so), itching of the treated area, infection at the treated area, an outbreak of cold sores in susceptible people and failure of the treatment. Very rarely, there may be hypopigmentation (pigment loss), hyperpigmentation (increased pigment), blistering or scarring.

What can I expect after treatment?

We have invested in a state of the art SSR device so you should expect to return to your normal activities immediately afterward, however the skin may appear quite red for a few hours to days.  Following treatment, an ice-pack can be applied to the skin if it feels warm or red or the practitioner can recommend skin-care products for this purpose.  Sun-cream must be applied to protect the treated area and sun-exposure should be avoided for 4 weeks.  The skin may appear to be a little blotchy or there may be patches of darker pigmentation for a number of days following treatment as the epidermis renews and sheds the treated problem areas.

Treatment time varies according to the size of the area being treated; a full face may take 45 minutes, the hands probably just 15 minutes.  You may notice some improvement after the first session, but for the best results we recommend a course of treatment 4 weeks apart and you may find a session of Medical Microdermabrasion or a Skin Peel beforehand enhances the results even more.

Aftercare advice 

After the treatment it is vital that you follow the following guidelines:

  • Avoid sun exposure/sun beds/fake tans and ALWAYS wear sun-cream when outdoors (UVA/UVB protection of SPF30 or above) for at least a month.
  • Avoid perfumed products and do not apply make-up to the treated area for 24hrs.
  • Do not pick or scratch at the treated area, especially if there is a reaction as this may result in scarring or infection – these will settle if left alone.
  • Avoid moderate-heavy exercise and alcohol for 24 hours following treatment (can exacerbate any skin discomfort/damage).
  • Avoid exfoliating or peels for at least 2 weeks, and further IPL treatment for at least 1 month.
  • Drink plenty of fluid/water during the 48hrs after treatment.
  • Apply ice, recommended skin care products or Aloe Vera to the treated area if uncomfortable or red until if settles down.

Contact the clinic immediately if you have any concerns.
