Red light therapy

Your skin,your covid recovery



Red light therapy or Phototherapy, uses the healing power of red and infrared light at specific wavelengths to accelerate the healing of, and recovery from, a wide range of physical conditions – quickly, painlessly and drug-free using non- invasive portable devices.

Red light therapy Your skin,your covid recovery

Over the past few years it has become increasingly popular as a cosmetic therapy for people – especially for anti-ageing treatments using technology from strap-on face masks to light box panels you sit in front of to shrink your wrinkles and reduce your blemishes.

What’s not so well known or talked about in the beauty magazines, are the many other health benefits that red light therapy offers in helping treat acute and chronic conditions.

Red light therapy is an amazingly effective therapy that treats a range of physical and mental conditions such as open wounds, bites and stings, inflammation, eczema, psoriasis, bruising as well as pain relief from arthritis, joint stiffness, and recovery from sport and musculoskeletal injuries, to name but a few!

And if that’s not enough, red light therapy has also been shown to improve cognitive performance, prevent Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), enhance the health of mitochondria in the brain, increase attention levels and short-term memory in young adults, and improve memory in older adults who have been suffering from significant memory impairment.

More importantly at the moment, with Covid 19 still a concern for many, red light therapy opens up the respiratory tract, reduces inflammation and increases and protects cell health & regeneration and maximises the body’s healing from viral attack.


Hyperbaric oxygen, your brain, your memory, your well being


  • I have a few patients with Multiple Sclerosis who come back completely revitalized from their sessions in the hyperbaric oxygen cylinder. I wanted to know more.
  • Ageing, injury and illness can all lead to lesser blood flow, tissue damage and our cells being starved of nutrients, all of which can slow our bodies natural healing process and cause premature ageing, delay recovery from illness, and can also affect the memory.

Delivering more oxygen to our cells can provide health, energy, and vitality and HBOT achieves this by providing an increase in oxygen naturally.


HBOT at Nimaya, my partner clinic

Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy involves you lying in a personal chamber whilst pure oxygen is fed in at a slightly higher than normal pressure.

By breathing in pure oxygen at this pressurized level, your lungs take in more oxygen and your blood absorbs more oxygen. This results in enhanced performance and increased endurance, quick recovery, improved fitness and overall rehabilitation.

HBOT is a simple, pain-free and non-invasive therapy provided at a level considered as a complementary treatment to alleviate a range of symptoms and support recovery and wellbeing.



Why Microneedling With PRP Is the Hottest Trend in Facial Rejuvenation

Medical science continues to research and improve nonsurgical treatment options designed to erase fine lines and wrinkles, reduce the appearance of scars, tone and lift sagging skin, and otherwise decrease the appearance of aging.

The good news? Many of these treatments work as promised when delivered by expertly trained skin care professionals.

The bad news? Chemical peels, laser peels, and a wide variety of other facial rejuvenation treatments can leave you hurting and hiding out at home while your skin heals.

That’s why the team Skinesse often encourages their patients to learn more about the benefits of micro needling.


What is micro needling with PRP ?

Micro needling with PRP (platelet-rich plasma) combines two treatments that are clinically proven to stimulate natural collagen production and improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and other skin flaws.


How it works ?

Micro needling and PRP therapy can be used independently of one another. Both offer impressive results in reducing the effects of aging on facial skin. Combining the two-in-one treatment can bring results to the next level.



During a microneedling treatment, your skin care expert uses an instrument fitted with multiple tiny needles to create numerous microscopic wounds in the targeted skin. The injuries trigger your body’s natural healing response. This stimulates increased production of collagen and growth factors to repair and rebuild the skin tissue in the treatment area.

Sounds painful, but it’s not. At Skinesse, Dr Nishel Patel offers state of the art micro needling treatments. This medical-grade device has improved precision and control compared to standard dermal rollers, providing more consistent results with less patient discomfort.

The instrument glides gently across your skin, the needles are quite small, and the process is very fast. Most people report it feels about the same as lightly wiping your face with a rough cloth. You’re left with a little redness that may linger for a day or so, but the micro-punctures typically close within 10-15 minutes.



PRP contains numerous natural growth factors and other substances that stimulate collagen production and wound healing. We obtain the platelet-rich plasma from a sample of your blood, about the same amount that’s withdrawn when you have certain labs. We then spin the blood sample very quickly in a centrifuge machine to separate the PRP from other blood components.
