Facelifts without surgery – do they work?
Get in touch with us
It’s hard to “un-see” the train-wreck of a face-lift-gone-wrong. Its even harder to credit the list of celebrities guilty of falling into the trap of permanently surprised eyebrows, mis-shapen eyes & smiles that would rival Heath Ledger’s Joker, in ‘The Dark Knight’.
Avoid the big price tags
A surgical price tag in the thousands puts that likelihood of surgical disaster beyond most of our reach but many of us would benefit from a subtle, tweak and tightening to help the battle with gravity, faced by our brows & jowls – that’s where Pollogen’s Tri-Lipo technology comes in.
How does ‘non-surgical’ work?
Radio Frequency (RF) heat is delivered from a hand-piece. This heats through the dermis, deep into subcutaneous layers of the skin. This starts to release fat cells.
While the hand-piece massages down on the skin, safe blasts of energy stimulate dynamic muscle activation (DMA), lifting the layer of muscle, squeezing the fat layer and releasing more fat cells.
Stimulate & harness the body’s metabolism
- Heat from the RF coupled with the massaging effect, accelerate natural lymphatic drainage, encouraging your body to metabolise & remove the fat naturally.
- Additionally, the RF heats collagen in the connective tissue, causing it to firm up, immediately smoothing & tightening the skin.
- At the same time the RF stimulates fibroblasts in the connective tissue to create more collagen, aiding longer-term regeneration & rejuvenation.
Immediate & longer lasting results
Results can be seen almost immediately but 4-6 treatments, at 2 to 4 weeks apart are recommended for a longer lasting effect – usually between six and twelve months, which can be topped-up with maintenance treatments, as required.
Cruelty free…tested on business owners!
Pollogen’s Tri-lipo technology is proven in 60 countries around the world & stars at Results Laser Clinic for a range of smoothing, tightening & sculpting techniques, ever since Results Laser Clinic’s founder & owner famously got on a plane, flying 18 hours to Pollogen’s Head Quarters, to trial the technology & returned raving about the results.

Skin Needling: Pen vs. Roller, which is best?
Get in touch with us
What is skin needling?
Clinical Skin Needling is rising in popularity for those in pursuit of the perfect skin. This skin resurfacing treatment is effective on uneven skin, scarring & age lines alike. The needling part refers to the tiny surgical needles, which are used to lightly puncture the skin, breaking down bumps, scar tissue & age lines. This process stimulates the body’s natural healing processes including the natural production of new collagen. The result is a new, smoother skin surface.
But what holds the needles you ask?
There are two technologies:
The DERMAL ROLLER is a mechanical device with surgical Micro Needles protruding from a wheel. This is rolled up and down the affected area. The upside is the simplicity, the downside is that it can create ‘tearing’ wounds, as the roller moves forward, leading the needle to exit the skin at an angle, which can be quite painful.
The NEEDLING PEN contains surgical micro needles, on a motorised head. Rather rather than using a rolling action, the Dermapen moves the needles in and out at a rate of about 1000 times per second, delivering tiny vertical punctures, creating less trauma to the epidermis. The head can be adjusted to vary the depth to which the needles penetrate the skin.
Where do I get Clinical Skin Needling?
Results Laser Clinic uses the Needling Pen at their 40 clinics nationwide. All treatments are performed by our expert therapists. Book a free, no-commitment consultation, to find out more & whether skin needling will help achieve the goals you’ve set for your skin.
Resurface & Repair your skin
Clinical skin needling can help improve skin texture & reduce the size of open pores, in just one treatment. 4-6 treatments are usually needed for severe acne scarring or age lines. Spring is a perfect time to craft your look for the summer & parties ahead.
Taking beauty advice from vampires? – Skin Needling Benefits
Get in touch with us
We were all intrigued when KK posted this Instagram photo.
And even more so when she denounced it as painful over three years later. I mean, who would want a facial where you are stabbed with tiny needles full of your own blood?
The treatment known as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has taken the world by storm a variation of the treatment that produces almost identical skin resurfacing results is known as Clinical Skin Needling.
So what is the fuss all about?
Why skin needling?
This affordable treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of skin concerns; it tackles pitted scaring, surgical scars, un-even skin tones, enlarged pores, fine lines and wrinkles. It also stimulates your natural collagen leaving you with a smoother, rejuvenated and younger look after each treatment at a fraction of the cost compared to other technologies on the market.
With consistent treatments, you will notice a significant reduction in pores, reduction or complete removal of pitted scaring and an overall more even skin tone. On average, scars can improve about 10-15% after your first treatment.
Helps to restore your skin’s natural firmness and tightness
Reduces depth of indented acne or chicken pox scars
Improves skin texture and reduces pore size
Lightens pigmentation marks and brightens skin tone
Improves fine lines, folds and wrinkles
Thickens the dermis and enhances dermal solidity
How does skin needling work?
Clinical Skin Needling works by lightly puncturing the skin with tiny medical needles through a motorised head. It is by far the most exciting treatment available on the market today, and Results Laser Clinic’s MediPro DermaPen is so advanced, that the depth of the needles can be adjusted in order to tailor a treatment specific to your needs.
It can even be used in those delicate and difficult areas such as around the lips, eyes and even on the nose. We love how instant the results are and we guarantee that you will love them too!
Can I have skin needling?
The best part about Clinical Skin Needling is that it works on almost all skin colours and types. Some treatments carry the risk of hyperpigmentation, especially in darker skins.
A FREE consultation with a clinical therapist will give you a better understanding of your suitability for the treatment. More often than not, if you have indented scaring, uneven skin surface or enlarged pores – you are the perfect candidate for the treatment.
Will it hurt like a vampire bite?
No. It is virtually painless! Our clinical therapists use a medical grade numbing cream on the skin’s surface about 30 minutes before treatment in order to make the experience as pleasant as possible. The sensation can be described as a fast, light vibration with slight flicks to the skin as the pen rolls over the area.
Will I bleed?
Not everyone will bleed, it just depends on how your skin responds to the needles and our therapists will only take the needle as far as your skin can handle. Bleeding does not mean better results.
How much recovery time will I need?
Usually redness and inflammation on the skin settles within hours of treatment and most clients will see their skin return to normal within 12-24 hours. To accelerate the healing process and also maximize the results of the skin needling treatment we recommend adding on an LED Advanced Light Therapy.
What are the normal side effects?
Skin may appear slight scratched and swollen within first 24hrs; pin prick bruising may also occur but will gradually subside over the 24-48hours.
It’s very normal for your skin to break out after the treatment as the skin is expelling toxins from beneath the surface.
It’s important to follow the aftercare given to you by our therapists.
Avoid touching your face, sleep on a fresh pillow case, clean your mobile screen and also if you are applying makeup avoid within 24 hours and ensure your brushes have been thoroughly cleaned.

Treatments for Stretch Marks
Get in touch with us
A stretch mark is formed when the dermis or surface layer of skin tears, scarring with a light coloured hue. This pulling force occurs from factors such as rapid growth or weight gain and diminishing dermal elasticity. Stretch marks are also known as striae, lineae atrphicae and striae cutis distensae.
Results Laser Clinic provides a number of treatments and technologies for stretch marks. This includes the most advanced, medically- graded Candela ND:YAG technology and only FDA cleared technology in the world for stretch mark removal, Palomar Starlux 1540 Fractional Laser. More importantly, therapists cater to individual needs and budget by providing an honest and realistic outcome in the consultation. When discussing treatment options with a therapist, clients are advised of their suitability for the treatment, costs and benefits.
