Most clients do report some discomfort during treatment,
likening it to a strong prickling sensation and feeling heat within the skin.
The most sensitive areas are where the skin is thinnest over the bones.
How many treatments
will I need?
Most clients elect to have 1-2 treatments for best results. However,
during your consultation, the number of treatments will be discussed depending
on individual needs.
What can I expect
Most clients experience slight redness and a small amount of
swelling following the treatment. It is also possible to feel a tingling
sensation and for the treated area to be tender for a few days after treatment.

On the blog today we’re going to walk you through you what
happens during an earlobe repair procedure.
Traditionally, repairing the earlobe would be done with a
scalpel, which would mean that the area would be prone to more bleeding,
reducing the precision and efficiency of the procedure and increasing recovery
time. At Snowberry Lane Clinic we use Radiosurgery, which uses a specially
designed handpiece containing a very thin wire. Radio waves are passed along
the wire which seals the blood vessels while the cutting is occurring, reducing
bleeding and making for a cleaner more efficient and precise procedure.
Here’s a video so you can see it for yourself:
As well as the procedure itself being more efficient,
another benefit of Radiosurgery for earlobe repair is the reduced downtime.
Following the treatment clients can return to their daily routine the following
day. This would only be affected by the job of the client, as there may be some
discomfort in the area while it heals, a job where ear defenders or any other apparatus
that puts pressure on the treated area would require longer recovery time.

don’t hesitate to get in touch with us today by calling 01225 700072 or

If you’re considering getting a cosmetic treatment that will
give you the best results in time for Christmas, now is the time to get in
touch with Snowberry Lane Clinic. Today on the blog we’ll be looking at timing
treatments properly so that they will help you look and feel your best in the
lead up to this special time of year.
We often have clients looking to make an appointment for a
treatment in the days leading up to a special occasion or event only to find
they have left it too late. In almost all cases, it’s not the scheduling of the
appointment that’s the issue, but the lack of knowledge around downtime and
recovery. Many of the treatments we provide are non-invasive and have minimal
downtime, but different treatments take different amounts of time to develop
and achieve their best results, so it’s important to take this into consideration.
Botox prevents small selected muscles from contracting to
help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Time it right: Allow
for 6 weeks before event, this gives time for area to settle and be topped-up
and full results to be visible.
Number of treatments
required: 1, results last 3-6 months, regular top-ups needed.
Some slight discomfort during treatment and possibility of bruising.
Commonly results are visible after 2-4 days with end result being visible after
2 weeks, at this point Botox can be topped-up if required.
Dermal fillers consist of an injectable gel substance that
is medically designed to imitate hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring
substance that helps to keep skin stable, locks in moisture and also helps with
renewing and healing skin. They are most commonly used to increase volume to
targeted areas of the face.
Time it right: Allow
6-8 weeks before event for best results.
Number of treatments
required: 1, results last 6-18 months, regular top-ups needed.
Some slight discomfort during treatment and possibility of bruising
Some clients see immediate results, with improvements continuing for up to a
month depending on the type of filler and the area being treated.
Radio Surgery is suitable for the removal of moles, lumps
and bumps on, or just beneath the surface of the skin. This treatment allows
for precision cutting of the skin using a very thin wire, the wire is heated
with radio waves which means the blood vessels are sealed as it cuts making for
a clean and efficient removal.
Time it right: The
area can be covered by make-up after 2 weeks. Ideal healing time before event
Number of treatments
required: 1, results are permanent, although some legions can reoccur.
Some discomfort during and straight after treatment, which can last for a few
days depending on the procedure.
Immediately, if it is a raised legion shaved to skin level then appearance will
be comparable to a graze so it will take approximately a few weeks to a month
to heal to a point where it is less noticeable, depending on your skin type. If
suturing is required, then healing will take longer.
In today’s blog we’ll be looking at microdermabrasion, how
it works and what results patients can expect to achieve.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a procedure that uses specially
designed microcrystals to gently exfoliate the skin, removing dead skin cells
helping to rejuvenate the top layer of skin, which in turn helps to promote the
natural growth of collagen underneath the surface. This treatment is designed
to improve the appearance, texture and feel of the skin on the face.
What does the treatment involve?
During the treatment medical grade micro crystals are worked
uniformly over the skin to cleanse the pores and target problem areas, this
process activates the natural production of new skin cell growth helping to
improve the appearance of the skin. Patients with minor acne and blackheads
around the upper forehead and sides of the nose can benefit greatly from this
Is it painful and is
Microdermabrasion is not painful at all. Many of our clients
compare it to a getting an exfoliating facial treatment and even describe it as
a ‘relaxing’ treatment. After Microdermabrasion you can return to your normal
day-to-day routine with no downtime at all, which is what makes it a great
treatment ahead of an event.
What results can I expect?
We recommend a course of 3-6 treatments to achieve the best
results, however even after a single treatment, clients report their skin
feeling softer, fresher and rejuvenated. It’s a great treatment to have in the
build-up to an event, with clients reporting feeling like their skin was
‘glowing’ after a completed course of treatments.
If you’d like to find out more about Microdermabrasion, or
any information on the non-invasive treatments we provide at Snowberry Lane,
we’d love for you to get in touch. You can do this by e-mailing us at email@example.com

In the last few years there’s been a huge trend towards
full, defined and bold eyebrows, long gone are the days of highly plucked thin
brows. Some peoples’ brows are naturally fuller and thicker, but many people achieve
this look with eyebrow pencil or other clever make-up solutions. This has lead
to an uptake in people looking for a more permanent way to create this look
that doesn’t require daily application.
Semi Permanent Make-up or SPMU, uses a specially designed
facial tattoo machine to create the impression of hairs allowing us to enhance
the appearance of your eyebrows in a way that appears natural.
Who is this treatment
Someone looking for an enhancement to their
Someone who participates in sports that require
make-up that can withstand athletic activities
Someone wishing to reduce the amount of time
they need to spend on their daily make-up routine
Someone who is suffering from partial to full
hair loss due to long-term conditions such as Alopecia or Cancer
How long does the
SPMU treatment takes 90 minutes, depending on the individual
client’s requirements. This includes the application of topical anaesthetic
cream to numb the treatment area.
What should I expect
After treatment, clients
may experience some redness and irritation, scabbing and light to moderate
swelling in the area. After the first week, the skin in the treated area will
begin to gently come away and the pigment will lighten. After 6-10 weeks it is
possible that you might want to come back for a top-up treatment to fill in any
areas affected by the healing process.
What are the different treatment options?
Ombre brows are created by varying the density of the pigment
from more concentrated to faded, creating a more delicate effect like that of a
softer pencil brow. This option is a good choice for clients who have little to
no eyebrow hair.
Hair stroke creates the appearance of individual hairs that
are built up to give the effect of a fuller natural looking brow. This is the
perfect choice if your eyebrows are thin or sparse and you’d like them to look more

Tattoo Removal is one of the most popular procedures
available at Snowberry Lane Clinic, with many people seeking to remove black
ink tattoos that they now no longer want. Tattoo removal works by using laser
technology, that delivers short pulses of laser light energy to the tattooed
area. The dark pigment in the ink absorbs this energy and is destabilising and
breaking it down.
many treatments are needed?
The removal of a tattoo is a big commitment, it takes multiple treatments over
a long period of time and the number of treatments needed depends on the size
and age of the tattoo as well as the individual’s skin type. On average around
10 treatments are needed. Each treatment must be 2 months apart in order to let
the skin heal itself properly, so as you can see it takes years to fully remove
Does it hurt?
The short answer – yes. We try to minimise discomfort with topical anaesthetic
cream, but much like getting a tattoo, it is not a pain free process. People liken
this treatment to the sensation of a rubber band being flicked against the
What happens after the treatment?
After the procedure a dressing
will be applied to treated area which can stay in place for up to 24 hours.
There will be some whitening to the skin and in some cases some redness,
swelling and very light bleeding.
are the results?
After a full course of treatments, you can expect for the tattoo ink to be
completely removed, leaving next to no trace of the tattoo. In some cases, if
the full course is not completed, very slight ghosting can occur, giving the
very faint appearance of the old tattoo, but for some clients the tattoo is
still reduced enough to cover up or be unnoticeable.
should I choose Snowberry Lane?
Snowberry Lane has been carrying out this treatment for 16 years, making it one
of the most experienced clinics in the UK. Our expert team carry out this
procedure on a daily, basis so can use this wealth of experience to help give
you the best results.

Laser Liposuction such as BodyJet can offer a less invasive
alternative to traditional liposuction, it uses a very thin cannula to deliver
a specially designed medical solution into the fat tissue. This encourages the
fat to lose structure, so it becomes loosened allowing for it to be removed
Who is BodyJet suitable for?
This treatment is recommended as an option for people who
are happy with their overall weight but looking to reduce fat in problem areas
that are resistant to diet and exercise.
Traditional Liposuction is a more invasive treatment
requiring general anaesthetic (putting the client fully to sleep) and scalpel
incisions. It is a more aggressive form of fat reduction removing a higher
volume of fat and can create trauma in the treatment area, which leads to
bruising, tenderness and swelling for approximately two weeks after the
procedure. BodyJet is designed to be more gentle, requiring only a local
anaesthetic (numbing of the treatment area only). However the treatment is
still likely to create tenderness, swelling and bruising, but it will be to a
lesser extent than traditional liposuction.
Effectiveness and results
With Bodyjet a proportion of fat is removed at the time of
treatment, but further fat cells are loosened and broken down in a way that
makes it possible for your body to remove it more easily. This method allows
for more natural looking results that take longer to show, with the results
developing over the following weeks and months after the procedure.
BodyJet does not require an extended healing period and
patients can return to daily activities straight away, although experiencing
tenderness is likely. Results for nonsurgical fat reduction are less noticeable
but you will be able to return to your normal daily routine (excluding
exercise) much sooner.
If you are interested in exploring your options further, a
great starting point is a consultation. Please give us a call on 01225 700072

Two of the most popular methods of hair removal are shaving and waxing, which although both are proven to be effective, require regular maintenance and can have negative side effects such as ingrown hairs and damage to the skin’s surface. Laser Hair removal aims to offer a long lasting solution to unwanted hair by collapsing the hair follicles so that hair can no longer grow.
Laser Hair Reduction is best for treating unwanted hair with
a dark pigment, this is because dark hair facilitates the travel of the laser’s
energy. Unfortunately light hair is not able to be treated in the same way.
Number of treatments: 6-9 minimum, treatments need to be spaced around the hair growth cycle so 6-10 weeks apart. It’s important to consider this if planning the treatment for a particular date.
Getting ready for Treatment:
Steer clear of the sun. You cannot receive treatment if you are tanned or sunburned so you need to avoid sun exposure in the month lead up to treatment (this includes sun beds).
Stop waxing. Laser hair removal requires the presence of the hair to reach the follicle, this means you can’t wax before treatment.
Final preparation. The day before your treatment you’ll need to remove the hair in the treatment area by shaving.
Treatment Duration: 30-60 minutes
Anaesthetic: Topical anaesthetic cream
Sensitivity Period: Some discomfort during and straight after treatment. You might experience some redness after treatment, which is a common side effect and should only lasts a few hours. Immediately after treatment, we recommend you avoid activities such hot baths, saunas and exercise) that create excess body heat.
Back To Work: Straight away, there’s no downtime for treatment, but if you’ve had treatment on your face you might not want to go back to work immediately.
Duration of Results: Top up treatments might be required depending on the individual. This is usually annually or less
