Soprano Titanium

Soprano Titanium

ABC Lasers

Soprano Titanium is the latest hair removal platform from Alma Lasers/ABC Lasers. The fifth generation of the Soprano family, it combines ultimate functionality with unparalleled comfort. Thanks to its large 4cm2 spot size and advanced cooling system, treatments are much faster and pain free.

The system combines three wavelengths in one applicator, which means it can treat all skin types (I-VI and tanned skin), various hair colours and hair follicle depths.  

Alex 755nm improves the absorption of powerful energy by the melanin chromophore, making it ideal for the most extensive range of hair colours and types, especially light coloured and thin hair. With increased superficial penetration, the it targets the bulge of the hair follicle and is especially effective for superficially embedded hair.

Speed 810nm offers deep penetration of the hair follicle with high average power and a rapid repetition rate. It has a moderate melanin absorption level, making it safe for darker skin types. Its deep penetration capabilities target the bulge and bulb, while moderate tissue depth penetration makes it ideal for treating the arms, legs, cheeks and chin.

YAG 1064nm is characterised by lower melanin absorption, making it a perfect solution for darker skin types. It offers the deepest penetration, so targets the bulb and papilla, while deeply treating embedded hair in areas such as the scalp, armpits and pubic region.

Soprano’s technology is FDA approved in the US for permanent reduction in hair regrowth on all skin types (I-VI) and has full CE clearance in Europe. There are also more than 15 clinical papers showing its efficacy.

truSculpt flex

truSculpt flex

Cutera UK

Our new truSculpt® flex is an FDA-approved, medical CE-marked (Medical Device Directive CE) Bio-Electrical Muscle Stimulation device, approved to build, sculpt, define and strengthen muscles of the abdomen, buttocks and thighs. These approvals are based on various conformity assessments, including clinical studies that show an average 30% increase in muscle mass, alongside a modest reduction in fat thickness over a course of four, 45-minute sessions.   

Our new truSculpt flex device allows patients to surpass the results of traditional exercise by isolating and stimulating muscles at an intensity higher than can be achieved by exercise alone

Research shows that on average, a healthy, fit adult has the ability to perform a maximum of 100 crunches before reaching a point of complete exhaustion; however, truSculpt flex technology has the ability to bypass the brain and send unique waveforms to the skeletal muscle. This, therefore challenge muscles at an intensity and duration that is beyond the level that can be achieved during regular exercise: during a forty-five-minute truSculpt flex treatment, a fit adult could perform the equivalent of up to 54,000 crunches.  

This intensity sees high levels of ‘overload’/trauma in the muscle fibres, helping initiate protein synthesis and resulting in considerable muscle mass growth (muscle hypertrophy).  

• Increase muscle mass thickness = average 30%1

• Improve definition and tone of core muscle groups

Strengthen muscle fibres

Pain management – improve chronic back pain by 40%2

Rehabilitation/physio = preventative muscle atrophy treatments

Posture improvements

Dermalux Flex MD

Dermalux Flex MD


The Flex MD is a portable, flexible LED array with application for both face and body treatments.

The system delivers the 3 most clinically proven and medically approved wavelengths; Blue 415nm, Red 633nm and Near Infrared 830nm. Wavelengths can be selected as individual or multi-wavelength treatments to target a wide range of patient indications and post treatment application. 

Due to its ability to activate cellular processes without transferring heat or creating trauma, the scope and versatility of LED Phototherapy is greater than many other energy treatments.  

The system holds Medical CE certification for acne, wound healing, psoriasis and pain (musculoskeletal). We also have proven results across a wide range of inflammatory conditions such as rosacea, eczema and dermatitis.  

Cosmetic indications include skin rejuvenation, pigmentation and redness and general sensitive skin conditions.  

Application of the Flex MD as a post treatment solution will help to reduce erythema and swelling, accelerate healing and bruise resolution, minimise the risk of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation and reduce patient downtime.  

We also recommend the LED treatment as an essential part of an on-going skin health programme.

ONDA Coolwaves

ONDA Coolwaves

DEKA in partnership with Lynton Lasers Ltd

Recently crowned in The TATLER Cosmetic Surgery Guide the “Number 1 Treatment for A Dimple Free Derriere”. Onda, is the first device of its kind to utilise the revolutionary Coolwaves™ technology a controlled frequency on the microwave spectrum of 2.45GHz to target variable depths of cellulite, skin laxity & unwanted deposits of subcutaneous fat. The utilisation of Onda’s ergonomic smart handpieces, allows practitioners to guide the electromagnetic field to the lipocytes in order to destroy fat cells & fibrous septa.

In very few sessions, practitioners are now able to provide clients with all of the desired body shaping treatments in one platform without the problems associated with other technologies. Primarily Onda is making waves through its ability to treat cellulite non-surgically, even its most advanced stages.
