The Three Counties Laser Centre is part of Bedford Hospital and proud to be one of a very small number in the UK to have the full suite of the most modern laser therapy equipment available, which is impressive given the increasing levels of complexity in the field of cutaneous laser therapy over the last two decades.
Our specialist team offers treatments for skin conditions for adults and children.
Common treatments include:
- laser hair removal
- laser tattoo removal
- removal of moles, cysts and fatty lumps
- laser removal of facial thread veins
- rhinophyma (a skin condition of the nose) reduction
- skin rejuvenation
- skin injectables
- eye bag removal (blepharoplasty)
The laser service is nationally recognised for its excellence with advanced laser equipment and specialist team. It has modern surgical theatres and provides many types of laser treatment and plastic surgery.
The range of laser equipment can be used to treat a very diverse range of skin types and conditions. All of the equipment is medical grade and ‘gold standard’ in terms of quality and safety.
The clinical environment meets all of the regulatory requirements for the safe operation of specialist laser therapy equipment.
