Removal of Moles, Warts and Skin Tags
Moles, warts and skin tags can be removed using our conventional CO2 Laser System from Bison Medical. Because the laser procedure seals blood vessels and eliminates the tissue they remove by evaporation, there is no need for sutures or cutting. A local numbing cream is used to provide anaesthesia. The resultant scar tissue is also usually less evident as compared to other methods of removal.
Removal of Tattoos/Permanent Make Up
This requires the use of a Q switch Nd:Yag Laser. Depending on the colours of the tattoo, some may require multiple sessions. Speak to us for more information on tattoo removal.

Rosacea is a chronic condition characterized by facial erythema. Pimples are sometimes included as part of the definition. Unless it affects the eyes, it is typically a harmless cosmetic condition.
Rosacea typically begins as redness on the central face across the cheeks, nose, or forehead, but can also less commonly affect the neck, chest, ears, and scalp
Dermatological vascular lasers or Intense Pulsed Light machines offer one of the best treatments for rosacea, in particular the erythema (redness) of the skin. They use light to penetrate the epidermis to target the capillaries in the dermis layer of the skin. The light is absorbed by oxy-hemoglobin which heat up causing the capillary walls to heat up to 70 °C, damaging them, causing them to be absorbed by the body's natural defense mechanism. With a sufficient number of treatments, this method may even eliminate the redness altogether, though additional periodic treatments will likely be necessary to remove newly-formed capillaries.
Telangiectasias are small blood vessels on the skin. They may develop anywhere within the body but can be easily seen in the skin (face and legs), mucous membranes, and whites of the eyes. Usually, they do not cause symptoms. However, some telangiectasias may be prone to bleeding and cause significant problems. Common causes include alcohol use, aging and sun exposure.
During laser treatment, a laser is applied to the skin over your spider veins. Laser energy causes your spider veins to coagulate and shrink. Laser therapy is most effective for small and medium size spider veins. You are likely to experience mild discomfort similar to having a small rubber band snapping against skin. Depending on your tolerance levels, you may opt to use a numbing cream prior to laser treatment. Immediately following treatment, spider veins will be darker and more visible. Over two to six weeks, your spider veins usually fade. After each treatment, you will see a 70% to 80% improvement in the appearance of face spider veins and 30-40% improvement in leg spider veins. An average of three to six treatments will be required at monthly intervals to produce desired results
A port-wine stain is a vascular birthmark consisting of superficial and deep dilated capillaries in the skin which produce a reddish to purplish discolouration of the skin. They are so called for their colour, resembling that of port wine. Lasers have made the biggest impact on treatment of portwine stains, because they are the sole method of destroying the cutaneous capillaries without significant damage to the overlying skin.
