Payment Plans and Course Prices

Over the last few months, I have been asked by many clients about course discounts and payment plans. I am pleased to say I have researched the best options and we have created a treatment price list, which incorporates course discounts. Also, we now offer GoCardless as a way of saving towards courses or breaking down the cost of treatments.

Here’s some more information about the options available.

Courses

I have updated our prices across the website, this gives our clients options when booking treatments. We have a pricing structure for one off treatments, or a discount when booking a course of treatments. When booking a course, you will need to pay at least 50% upfront, with the remaining spread over one or two payments through GoCardless. This is dependent on the number of treatments and value of the course.

GoCardless available at Vale Laser Clinic

Savings Plan

GoCardless is an online tool that can collect monthly direct debits from your bank account. This will be as much as you like, as often as you like. This is a great way to save for that treatment or course of treatments you never thought you would be able to afford. Now is the ideal time to start saving and spread the cost of the treatments you want when we re-open our doors.

GoCardless is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and we don’t have access to your banking details at any time. Your payments will be recorded in our client management software, Phorest, which is fully GDPR compliant and you will be able to review this, with us, at any time. You will also be able to track this in our dedicated App in the near future.

Why we don’t do Dermaplaning.

We get asked if we do dermaplaning almost every day, it seems to be the latest fashionable treatment at the moment. 
It’s a treatment we have chosen not to do and here is why.

Dermaplaning is mechanically removing the top layer of your epidermis (the outer layer of your skin) and shaving your vellus hair. 

Our ethos is to make the skin as healthy as possible, fighting free radicals and UV damage. We do this by reinforcing the skin’s health using luxury medical skincare usually referred to as cosmeceuticals. These products cannot be bought in department stores or picked up off the shelf as you need to have a consultation with a skincare specialist to make sure you are using products with ingredients that are treating your skin type and condition effectively, to give you the best results for your skin. 

UV damage happens every day. UVA rays are present if it is daylight, they are ageing your skin even if the sun isn’t shining and they penetrate clouds and glass. Your epidermis and vellus hair is your own natural last layer of protection against UV rays, that’s why we don’t mechanically remove it. 

When it is mechanically removed, it’s gone in an instant and the lower layers aren’t quite ready to protect you. What we do to aid desquamation (the natural shedding of your skin) and remove the skin that’s clinging on a little too much, is chemically remove them. That sounds scary but it isn’t. It’s using ingredients within a facial that break down the chemical bonds between the layers of your skin and this happens over the few days after you have had your treatment. Slowing down the removal process allows the bottom layer of your skin to turbo charge cell production, meaning the skin that will become exposed is that little bit more ready to defend against free radicles and UV rays. 

As for removing the vellus hair, would you take a bic razor to your face to shave it? Dermaplaning is doing the same thing. Any hair, especially vellus hair, grows tapered. It is naturally thinner at the ends. When you cut this hair at the skin’s surface you are cutting it blunt and it will continue to grow with a blunt end, giving the impression of it growing thicker. Nobody wants thicker hair growing on their cheeks or chins. 

The instant exfoliation from Dermaplaning gives a smooth feeling to the skin. Unless the skin function is changed by using active molecules within your skincare consistently, your skin will return to how it was pre treatment. We believe that you can obtain that smooth feeling every day by using the active skincare whilst protecting the skin at all times against free radicals and UV damage. This in turn will slow down the aging process and give you your best skin every day. 

If you want to ask any questions about our treatments, which make a physical improvement to the function and therefore appearance of your skin, then please do get in touch here.

Acne

Spot the difference….

You’ll grow out of them they said.  

It’s just a few spots they said. 

You can’t see them they said. 

Acne can effect any age, any gender and in a number of ways.  It took me a long time to really understand how acne worked and what I can do to prevent it. 

It was my dermatologist that recommended #Environ to improve my skin. When I was introduced to the brand and its partners #advancenutritionprogramme and #janeiredalemakeup my interest in skincare has has lead me to #alumier and since I have been using these products I haven’t looked back.  

As I approach 40 my skin is the best it has ever been. My bad skin days now are better than my good skin days before. I have learnt how powerful active ingredients are,  they aren’t available in a supermarket or department store.  Skincare specialists can make a real difference to you skin and give you confidence and guidance.  It’s all about the #skinscience

Bridal Skincare

The wedding date is set, venues secured and your dress chosen.  All the big things are organised so what’s next on your list? It’s never too early to start a skin care plan to ensure your skin is looking it’s very best for your big day.  With so many options, it’s good to hear from other brides what they have used and known to work. 

 

Vale Laser Clinic can help you on your journey to looking your very best on your big day, here’s a question and answer session with Hannah who was married in August 2016:

  • How did you hear about Vale Laser Clinic?

I came across Vale Laser Clinic on Instagram at the beginning of 2015. It came up and it made me visit the website. 

  •  What skin concerns and treatment have you had?

My main skin concerns were sun damage, oily skin and redness. I had a oily forehead in particular. The centre of face would be red in comparison to the rest of my skin and I had sun damage in various spots. Overall my skin was never very even and I never felt I could get away with not wearing any makeup. I started my treatment with the Environ skin care range. I have used this since February 2015 and I have also had approx 7-8 Laser skin rejuvenation sessions all with a 3-4 week break in between. Some sessions also included laser red vein removal and laser pigmentation removal. 

  •  Has is made a difference to you and if so what?

The main difference it has made for me is that it has improved the texture of my skin. The treatments have helped my oily skin in particular and I have less redness over all. My forehead could still benefit from a few more sessions as its been very tricky to get to bottom of whether it is redness or pigmentation that is causing it to look blotchy, but I feel my skin tone is even and in much better condition overall. 

  •  What makes Vale Laser Clinic so special?

I have enjoyed my experience at Vale Laser Clinic for many reasons. Emma made me feel comfortable in her clinic and explained everything she was going to do to improve my skin. Each session started with a mini facial which made my skin feel incredible. The services and products are priced really well and I felt I was getting a good service for the money I was paying. I also like the fact I could contact Emma privately to show her pictures of my results following a session so she knew how proceed with the next session. 

  •  Would you recommend to family and friends?

I would definitely recommend the clinic to my friends and family. I know many people who are not happy with various different things to do with their skin and so I have recommended Emma. I like the idea of being able to pop in for a treatment with Emma and maybe some new nails at the same time so I have told family and friends about this too. I have even asked for some gift vouchers from my husband for Christmas so I can go in the New Year!!
