About Us

The West of England Laser Centre, offering a variety of Eye Surgery, Laser Skin treatments, Muscle relaxant and Dermal Filler injections, and Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery, is situated at the Nuffield Hospital Taunton in Somerset (www.nuffieldhealth.com), and is run by Mr Kim Hakin FRCS FRCOphth, Consultant Ophthalmic and Oculoplastic Surgeon.

Premium Cataract and Lens Eye surgery for Lifestyle Vision, using the latest small-incision no-stitch techniques, with no-needle anaesthesia and the state-of-art bifocal implants (ReSTOR, ReZoom, mPlus) that can correct your short or long-sightedness, and not only allow you to see in the distance but also read, without any glasses, is available as a fixed-price package in conjunction with the Nuffield Health Taunton Hospital.

The Centre is able to offer various laser skin treatments for facial line softening and wrinkle removal, acne scarring, moles, age and sunspots, thread veins, fine leg veins, and unwanted hair and tattoos.

Muscle relaxant injections are available for frown, forehead and laughter lines around the eyes, and for excessive underarm sweating.

Facial lines, creases and wrinkles can also be treated with injections of Restylane, the modern version of collagen. Restylane Vital is also now available to treat those areas that "give away" your age, such as your neck, decolletage and the backs of your hands.

Cosmetic Eyelid surgery - Blepharoplasty - is also available, in conjunction with laser or relaxant treatment, if necessary, as well as surgery for other eyelid problems and watery eyes.

We are pleased to be able to offer the SkinCeutical range of advanced skincare products, including their Gel Peels, designed to correct previous damage, protect healthy skin, and prevent future damage, in order to restore youthful radiant skin whilst reducing the risks of skin cancer.
