The Daily Express'Treatment Of The Week'What does it promise?This fast-acting facial uses intensive light therapy to zap blemishes such as acne scars, uneven pigmentation, thread veins and sun spots. Technically known as Aesthera PPx, available at The Harley Medical Group this high-tech treatment also promises to tighten skin while leaving dull winter complexions looking bright, fresh and youthful. Unlike most traditional laser treatments this is practically pain free and takes only seven minutes to complete.What's involved?First the nurse talked me through the procedure, explaining what would happen and reassuring me it would be painless. Then she asked whether I had any areas of my face I was unhappy with. I pointed out some old scars and she promised to target those areas intensively. She moistened my face with a wet towel then put the tip of the light gun on my skin. The machine sucks up a small area of skin which is then blasted with the light before being released. It feels a bit like being pinched. She repeated the process over my entire face, moistening each area of skin before targeting it.How much?£350 per treatment or £1,450 for a course of five.How long?About 20 minutes - seven minutes for the treatment itself plus the time that it takes to explain just what is involved.The verdictMy skin felt instantly tighter and lifted and the procedure took hardly any time at all which was great. Immediately afterwards, I was able to put on make-up and return to work. A few days later my skin still felt softer and more taut, and areas of discolouration had faded slightly. I had a single facial but I think you will need to book the whole course to see the real benefits of this treatment.
