The SkinBase IPL can be used for a wide range of treatments making it an option for all skin types of all ages. Pigmentation, unwanted hair, thread veins, acne or improving general skin tone and fine lines, are just a few of the treatments available with the SkinBase IPL.

Beauty by Joanne Smedley

Client Testimonial: “I’d tried all sorts of treatments to get rid of my wrinkles and sagging skin particularly on my left cheek. Nothing has ever worked. Microneedling and caci being just 2 of those. When Jo told me of the collagen lift it was a last stop before a face lift. I am amazed at the results, I don’t focus on my wrinkles when I look in the mirror anymore as they aren’t noticeable! Jo has worked wonders on my skin and I will continue to have the treatment as it not only works but it isn’t painful like the others and it’s actually relaxing.”
