Clinical Treatments at Victoria Rose Beauty Salon
At the Victoria Rose Beauty Salon we offer a range of Clinical Beauty Treatments details of which are shown below.
Botox and Fillers
The benefits of Botox have made them a popular cosmetic treatment. It works by using a protein to relax specific muscles, giving your face a younger, revitalized appearance. Fillers are made up of a compound called hyaluronate, which is a naturally occurring substance found in skin and cartilage. It is extremely effective at smoothing out static wrinkles and lines, leading to a naturally younger look.
Botox is also useful for those with hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating. This is a syndrome that is usually treated with prescription anti-perspirants, the long-term effects of which aren’t known and, for those whose hyperhidrosis is especially severe, is only mildly effective. Botox, however, balances the problem and relieves the condition for several months at a time.

The SkinBase microdermabrasion Facial™ is a safe, controlled treatment that intensely exfoliates and resurfaces the skin. It’s the leading skincare treatment in the UK & Ireland for complete skin rejuvenation.
A fine jet of abrasive crystals gently removes dead skin cells layer by layer and a vacuum action lifts away the debris, stimulating the blood flow and encouraging collagen and elastin formation that results in firmer, revitalised and youthful looking skin. Wrinkles disappear, acne scarring is reduced and dull and tired skin is completely banished – sometimes after just one treatment.
Effects are usually seen after the first treatment, with ongoing improvements seen week after week during a course. Our SkinBase therapist will perform an initial consultation and recommend a course length to you. Usually, this will consist of 6 to 8 treatments, 7 to 10 days apart. Skin problems such as acne or acne scaring or deeper forehead wrinkles may require up to 20 weeks to achieve full improvements. After a course is completed, a single monthly treatment will maintain your skin’s improvements.
Microdermabrasion will treat: Acne & Acne Scarring, Fine lines, Uneven Skin Tone, Brown Spots & Blotchy Skin, Pigmentation and Skin Blemishes.

How does light assisted hair removal work? Light is selectively absorbed by melanin, the pigment in the hair follicle. The light energy heats the pigment and effectively destroys the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding cells.
IPL – Thread Vein Removal
Facial thread veins or broken red veins (telangiectasia) are small unsightly superficial red, purple or blue veins that occur around the nose and across the cheeks and chin. These broken veins occur when the vein dilates and become larger so they are visible through the transparency of the skin.
Although facial veins / spider veins are quite common they can cause some distress and embarrassment for those who have them. Facial veins may be hereditary or as a result of a variety of factors including damage from sun exposure, wind and the extremes of temperature. The over use of steroid creams and certain auto immune conditions may also induce thread veins.
Often the exact cause is unknown and may just be part of the natural ageing process or as a part of a skin condition called rosacea. Facial vessels are effectively treated with Intense Pulse Light (IPL) or laser with minimal downtime or risk in just a few quick, easy treatments. Treatment is suitable for you if you want to: Reduce overall facial redness and reduce blushing, be rid of embarrassing broken veins or red spots, have clearer, brighter, fresher looking skin. Suitable for face, neck and chest.
IPL – Acne Treatment
What Causes Acne? The presence of acne is often influenced by the following factors:
Influence 1: Hormones – For the majority of acne sufferers, outbreaks begin at puberty because the body begins to produce hormones called androgens. These hormones cause the sebaceous glands to enlarge, which is a natural part of the body’s development but for acne sufferers these glands are over stimulated. Androgens are also responsible for acne flare-ups associated with the menstrual cycle and, on occasion, pregnancy.
Influence 2: Oily Skin – When the sebaceous gland is stimulated by androgens, it produces extra sebum (oil). Sebum mixes with common skin bacteria and dead skin cells that have been shed from the lining of the follicle. While this process is normal, the presence of extra sebum in the follicle increases the chances of clogging and can cause acne. Stress levels have also affected sebum production and can increase severity of acne.
Influence 3: Bacteria – The bacterium Propionibacterium acnes, (P. acnes for short) is present on all skins and is part of the skin’s natural sebum maintenance system. Once a follicle is plugged, P. acnes bacteria multiply rapidly, creating the chemical reaction we know as inflammation in the follicle and surrounding skin.
Influence 4: Inflammation – When you are exposed to unwanted bacteria your immune system sends in an army of white blood cells to attack. This is why pimples can be red, swollen and painful. The inflammatory response is different for everyone, but studies have shown that it is especially strong in adult women.
Fortunately, you have options! There are many kinds of acne treatments available. Like you, acne is highly individual and response to treatments does vary from person to person. Often several treatments are recommended in combination. We offer an extensive range of acne treatments and will advise on the most suitable procedure for you and your skin.
IPL – Pigmentation Removal
Sun spots, liver spots, freckles and other unwanted pigmentation are often associated with skin ageing and over exposure to the sun or sunbeds. From the age of about 40 the skin is less able to regenerate from sun exposure and age spots start to appear.
Generally these age spots pose no health risk, however they can be unsightly and create a patchy, less youthful appearance. Freckling and age spots are successfully lightened or removed with Laser or Intense Pulse Light. Not all pigmentation concerns are as a result of sun exposure and some people are born with pigmented birthmarks or may have melasma, a skin pigmentation condition often associated with pregnancy or hormones.
Birthmarks can often be treated with a Q-Switch Laser. IPL or Intense Pulse Light skin rejuvenation and pigment removal treatment is a relatively quick and easy procedure. Age spots and freckles can be lightened or removed in as little as one to three treatment sessions.
The light targets areas of excess pigment safely breaking down the excess melanin. The sun spots or freckles darken in the first few days after treatment and then the excess melanin sheds naturally away. Treatment is suitable for you if you want a more even skin tone or you want to reduce areas of excess freckling or you want to target a specific age spot.
