The Daily Mail’s Mail Online Live visited our Putney Beauty Salon today for a live video of the ‘laser lunchtime lift’ which went out on their Facebook page.
In just 1 hour the video already has accumulated over 100,000 views and nearly 500 comments.
The treatment demonstration and interview were carried out by Cosmedics Skin Clinics’ Medical Director, Dr Ross Perry.

Dr Perry explains the technology:
“This is a relatively new concept in terms of lasers.”
“The type of laser has been around for a long period of time. However, the new laser has taken a very unique aspect of it, so rather than the laser just firing directly into the skin in one long pulse, it’s broken up that pulse so it means that they can deliver as much energy as they want without creating any downtime or redness or swelling; so it’s a real game-changer in terms of being able to have a proper full-effect laser without any downtime and that’s the beauty of it, and that’s why it’s called the lunchtime lift.”
The Daily Mail reporter had a full facial treatment designed to tackle pigmentation problems and redness:
Dr Perry explains that the laser is a very versatile machine:
“The nice thing about this laser is that it is multi-faceted, so it can treat a variety of things.”
A common concern that patients have is that it could be quite painful, but this is not the case with the Harmony XL Pro. Dr Perry continues:
“The nice thing about this laser is that it actually isn’t painful. I’m sure patients and people out there have had IPL in the past, which feels like a small elastic band snapping onto the face.
“This is completely different. This is not treating the superficial layers but the deeper layers so it restructures the collagen and by doing that it helps increase the complexion.”
During treatment, the patient confirms that it doesn’t hurt at all:
“I can’t feel anything, quite a nice warm sensation actually.”
Treatment starts at a low laser setting and is then built up to higher energy to tackle the more difficult areas of pigmentation deeper within the skin.
However, a pigmentation treatment will have other benefits for the skin too. Patients will get an initial glow after treatment
“Hence the other name for it is a ‘laser peel’ – even though the skin doesn’t actually peel, you get the effect of a peel for 2-3 days afterwards which gives the skin a nice glow, hence it’s perfect pre and post party season.”
He also explains that the laser can be used quite close to the eye area to help with crows’ feet and signs of tiredness:
“It just plumps out the area, better than any creams or lotions will do.”
Collagen rebuilding will start to show after about a month, making the skin appear smoother.
Dr Perry recommends a course of treatment for best results, the benefits of which will last for around a year.
