"What I like about Woodford is that all procedures are always carefully explained in such detail that the questions in your head are answered without the need to be asked. Once again a big thank you to Dr Patterson and all the staff at Woodford".


"Once I realised the condition I was experiencing was Rosacea I started to research different treatments and Dr Patterson and the Woodford Medical reputation stood out throughout all of my research. I came into see him for a free consultation and he discussed IPL as the best treatment for me.

I have not looked back since. My flushing has been reduced to maybe once or twice a month if that and even though I still cut back on certain foods and drink I can have anything in moderation without worrying.

I trust Dr Patterson implicitly, I feel I can talk to him freely about my condition and he keeps me aware of anything that may help keep the flushing at bay. I am now using the Epionce SPF 50 Sunscreen Lotion on his recommendation which is fantastic.

I would recommend anyone to this excellent clinic!"


"Excellent results. I had IPL to help with rosacea on my nose: the effects were immediate my skin looked so much better. Have tried IPL and other treatments at various other clinics but have never been happy with the results!'

"I researched IPL Photorejuvenation as a treatment for pigmentation and came across Woodford Medical. After an initial consultation I had my course of treatments and was astounded by the results!


The difference was almost immediate! Straight away I could see a reduction in the redness and as I continued treatment it continued to reduce my flushing until it disappeared altogether. I no longer worry about drinking alcoholic drinks, or being in a hot room, and can now sit in the sun with an SPF on my skin and see no sign of any returning red veins."


"Time and time again I found Woodford Medical the favourite among the review sites and not just taking the top spot but taking it by a mile. It was then that I knew that Woodford Medical was the right choice and I immediately scheduled an appointment. Easily one of the best decisions I've made in my life."

IPL Photorejuvenation

Photorejuvenation, also known as the Photofacial, is recognised in the industry as the most effective treatment for the reduction of facial redness, flushing, face veins, pigmentation and fine lines and wrinkles.

What conditions can IPL improve?

The Photofacial is beneficial in treating the following:

  • Sun damage
  • Pigmentation
  • Age/sun spots
  • Facial redness
  • Rosacea
  • Broken veins
  • Skin laxity
  • Uneven texture

The latest technology at Woodford Medical

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) was initially developed in the US by a leading dermatologist, however here in the UK, Dr Mervyn Patterson and Dr Hilary Allan who pioneered the introduction of The Photofacial treatment. In our clinics, we use the Palomar StarLux system and have just introduced Palomar's latest technology, the MaxG, which is now producing the most impressive patient results that we have seen with any laser or IPL system.

What are the benefits?

This treatment has impressive results in eliminating the ageing effects of sun damage as well as reducing facial redness by using pulses of visible white light to the face, neck, chest areas, legs and back of hands.

After a course of treatments, usually three to five, patients see a visible improvement in the appearance and texture of the skin. There is minimal discomfort and the skin will start to look smoother and less red as your course progresses. There is minimal recovery time required so you can go back to work or your usual routine immediately after the treatment.

So if you feel your skin lacks the glow of youth or is uneven, red and flushed, this versatile treatment could be the answer for you. Contact us today for a consultation or click here to request more information.
