My skin was dreadful having suffered the effects of rosacea for over 10 years and I had given up hope of ever finding a solution. Then last summer I came across the Pulse Light Clinic by chance on the internet. From the moment I walked through the door of the clinic, the warm, kind and understanding welcome I received from Sheila and Josi put any nerves I had completely at rest. Six sessions of IPL later, in the wonderful skilled hands of Sheila, and my skin is amazing. Gone is the burning, flushing sensations, the angry looking red capillaries are no more and my skin is smooth and soft.
"For all my adult life I’ve had to cover up all the patches of red thread veins on my face, and it made me so self-conscious. As I got older this became more and more of a problem – make up really shows on older skin! I had heard about treatments for rosacea and wondered if it worked for broken veins as well. When I found the Pulse Light Clinic web site I thought I’d go for a consultation, especially as it was conveniently located in the centre of city of London.
When Mark was in his 20s, he decided to join the Territorial Army, and he regularly found himself on the shooting range at Bisley, competing as a member of the TA shooting team. What appears to have happened is that the powerful recoil of the gun, constantly bruising his right cheek, left permanent broken blood vessel and capillary damage. As time progressed, the area of his cheek became more visible, his Rosacea worsened.
"It felt a bit like someone pinging an elastic band at me. It was not unpleasant, just slightly uncomfortable - but there's no gain without pain as they say!
I'm now very happy that it's been sorted out once and for all. It's been on my mind since I was in my 20s and it really didn't help my self confidence as a young lad. I was very conscious of it but now it has gone I feel much more confident about myself when I am with others. The treatment was very effective and Pulse-Light Clinic have done a good job."

John suffered from Rosacea for a number of years. He came with the hope of getting some relief from the condition.
"Having been a long time sufferer from Rosacea I was keen to find a treatment which would tackle the problem of broken facial veins. I tried conventional laser treatment but found this to be largely ineffective.
I enquired into IPL and after a consultation at Pulse-Light Clinic decided to enter into a course of treatment. I am delighted to say IPL has proved to be the answer that I had been looking for.
Broken veins have now been removed and other Rosacea symptoms such as red blotches and facial flushing have long since abated.
To anyone who suffers from Rosacea I would not hesitate to thoroughly recommend a course of IPL treatment at Pulse-Light Clinic."
Hayley came to the clinic for treatment on a small blood vessel which has now completely gone
"I came into you about three weeks ago to have some treatment on a small blood vessel on my nose and just wanted to let you know that it was successful and has gone completely!!! Just wanted to say thanks as well and I wish now I had come in sooner, if I had known it was going to be so easy then I definitely would have done.
Charlotte came to the clinic for some small vein treatment but also experienced the benefit of collagen production after treatment!
"I would highly recommend IPL treatment at the Pulse Light Clinic to anyone seeking collagen treatment. The treatment is carried out by Sheila MacLean, a highly qualified, professional and extremely friendly person with a lot of experience in the treatment. I am constantly amazed by Sheila's high-tech knowledge and skill in the procedures and feel thoroughly confident in her hands.
