Dermatologist Manchester

I know first hand how skin conditions can affect your confidence. Endless doctors appointments, being given creams, gels, antibiotics all in the hope your skin would clear up and you would have the clear glowing skin you've always dreamt of, but nothing seems to be working. Back to the doctors you go, hoping to be referred to a dermatologist then put on a long waiting list. Whilst we are all so grateful to the NHS, it is quite over filled and therefore the waiting list to be seen by a dermatologist can be just too long to wait. On the other hand, going to see a dermatologist privately just isn't an option because of the cost element. Thats where I come in. My name is Paige and I am an Advanced Skin Specialist. Having suffered with my own skin throughout the years, being in the same position as you are now, spending endless hours searching for help that won't cost me an arm and a leg, I decided to do all my own in depth research into skin, gut health and lifestyle factors to find out what could be triggering my acne and get to the root cause once and for all. 

 I have spent many nights researching all there is to know about skin along with attending many training courses to gain knowledge from different practitioners throughout the UK before starting Skin by Paige Alexandra.  

Based in Manchester, we offer many sophisticated skin treatment options to combat common imperfection issues like skin damage, wrinkles, moles, lesions, acne, hair loss, rosacea, and fine lines. 

 Our company is more than a mere skin rejuvenation facility because we have skin specialists on hand to offer medical-based skin treatment solutions to clients who need help the most. One of our most popular medical-based skin treatment solutions is our advanced Dermalux LED Therapy machine. 

Light Emitting Diode (LED) Phototherapy is a non-invasive treatment that targets specific non-thermal light to energise cells which triggers a cascade of bio-stimulatory responses. It is scientifically proven for a wide range of indications including skin rejuvenation, acne and pigmentation to wound healing, psoriasis and pain relief.  

Well evidenced for its regenerative and healing benefits, Phototherapy does not transfer heat or create trauma making it particularly effective to treat problematic and inflammatory conditions. With one of the highest safety profiles, it is pain free treatment without downtime and suitable for all skin types.   

LED Phototherapy is now recognised as an essential skin care treatment due to its versatility and role in the foundation of skin optimisation and good skin health.  

Phototherapy, meaning ‘Treatment with Light’ is based on the principle that all living cells have evolved to absorb and be influenced by light. Light is a powerful energy and when applied correctly, has a significant impact on how we look, feel and perform. 

The mechanism of action is a natural response similar to that of photosynthesis through a process known as photobiomodulation. 

 The human body has an amazing capacity to heal itself and light plays a crucial role. 

The treatment involves exposing the skin to specific wavelengths or nanometres (nm) from the visible (colour) and infrared (invisible) part of the light spectrum. Wavelength selection is crucial to the success of the LED treatment as it determines how effectively the light is absorbed. It is so much more than colour choice.  

There are over 3,000 independent clinical studies supporting LED Phototherapy but only three wavelengths (nm) have been shown over time to deliver significant therapeutic outcomes; Blue 415nm, Red 633nm and Near Infrared 830nm.  

The use of Green 520nm, Yellow 590nm and 600nm are not supported by credible scientific research to deliver any significant therapeutic benefit.  

If the wavelength does not match the target chromophore, absorption will be compromised, and treatment results will be limited.   

Dermalux systems use only the three most clinically proven wavelengths delivered via our unique LED technology with a tolerance of +/-2nm. This ensures that all the light energy delivered into the skin is at the peak/intended wavelength.

DERMALUX BLUE 415NM Blue 415nm is the most proven wavelength to destroy the bacteria which causes acne and improve skin clarity whilst being gentle on the skin. Powerful antibacterial action also has a calming effect to reduce redness and inflammation.DERMALUX RED 633NM Red 633nm supercharges cell energy to accelerate repair and renewal, boost collagen synthesis, increase hydration and enhance circulation to reverse the visible signs of ageing. Ideal for restoring vitality and glow.DERMALUX NEAR INFRARED 830NM Near Infrared 830nm targets deeper cells to trigger the wound healing process, calm redness and irritation, reduce pigmentation and promote healthy skin. Combine with Red 633nm for advanced rejuvenation benefits.Our clients usually see a drastic improvement in their skin’s appearance within 4 to 6 weeks following a course of Medical LED Therapy treatments. But additional treatment sessions are sometimes needed depending on the severity of the skin issues.Every appointment with a skin specialist starts with a comprehensive skin examination to evaluate the current condition of your skin. After that, your skin specialist will make treatment recommendations based on your personal goals and what is possible for your skin. Most skin treatment options are minimally invasive and utilize more sophisticated technologies as alternatives to scalpels, such as lasers and needles.Would you like a Free Skin Analysis / Consultation?
