Photo Rejuvenation: Diffuse Redness & Pigment

Remove age spots, diffuse redness, poikiloderma of civatte (discoloration on the neck) and uneven pigmentation on the face and body.

Sun damage and brown spots may be genetic in origin or caused by physical damage such as sunburn or injury as well as the natural effects of aging. The lesions can very in size and color.

Photo Rejuvenation: Vascular Lesions, Rosacea & Thread Veins

A large number of men and women all over the world suffer from disorders of the blood vessels (vascular lesions). Vascular lesions are the result of numerous or large vessels that form directly underneath your skin. These lesions occur in many shapes and sizes and can be found all over the body. They occur in a variety of forms including port wine stains, broken capillaries, diffuse redness, hemangiomas, and cherry angiomas. Some lesions are present from birth while others develop with age or as a result of environmental damage (such as sun exposure).


Obtain a clearer complexion without the use of antibiotics or other medications. Acne occurs when sebum is unable to leave the skin because a hair follicle is blocked. This may result in growth of bacteria below the surface of the skin. Inflammation can occur, and rupture of an inflamed area can lead to scarring.

The Nordlys Acne Treatment uses Selective Waveband Technology reducing the blood supply to the sebaceous gland, which slows the production of sebum and accelerates the heading process for acne.

Onychomycosis (Nail Fungus): Clear Nail Treatment

There is a huge and growing base of patients who need a definitive onychomycosis treatment. A treatment that is more effective than topical solutions and at least as effective as systemic anti-fungals, but without the long-term commitments and especially without the risk of side effects associated with systemic drugs.

Onychomycosis (nail fungus) can affect finger or toe nails. It becomes more common with age, and certain other groups have a higher risk of developing the condition - people with diabetes, athlete's foot, or circulation problems; people who sweat a lot, or even use communal showers at the gym or swimming pool.


The Nordlys Nd:YAG laser provides a fast, effective treatment of resistant warts (those which do not respond to other treatment methods). An intense beam of infrared light is used to burn and destroy the wart tissue. A local anaesthetic may be given depending on the number and location of the warts. A single burst of light is enough for smaller warts, whereas larger ones such as plantar or mosaic warts found on the soles of the feet may require multiple shots to ensure the whole area is treated. To assist the light to penetrate the skin, any callus or area of dead skin present will be thinned out using a razor or scalpel, and a thin layer of optical coupling gel will be applied.
