Your treatment, our philosophy

At LASE, our facilities mean that many procedures that are traditionally performed under full general anaesthetic with overnight stay can instead be offered under sedation anaesthesia and as a day case.

Full general anaesthetic and inpatient type cases can still be offered but off site.

Our clients travel easily to see us, with the clinic being located next to the West Jesmond Metro and having ample local parking, from all over the UK for to see us and tap into the experience and quality of service we offer.

We’ll help you clearly define who and what is the ‘ideal’ you, starting with the end in mind to ensure we are advising you which treatment or treatments are best suited to your needs.

About Us

LASE Cosmetic is the brainchild of husband and wife team Ahmed and Lisa Ali-Khan, who have combined their 40 years’ experience to create a clinic which is like no other in the North East.

Our ethos is simple – to offer clients tailored advice and treatments which fit their needs and are completely outcome focussed, whether that’s a simple skin rejuvenation treatment or multiple surgical procedures which result in naturally looking youthful skin.

And because of our expertise across cosmetic and plastic surgery, the team at LASE is uniquely positioned to determine whether surgical or non-surgical procedures are the best option for the individual – avoiding unnecessary general anaesthetics and overnight stays.

 At LASE’s clinic in Jesmond, on the outskirts of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, you can expect the very best in advanced cosmetic treatments, many of which are completely exclusive to us.

One such procedure is CoolSculpting, the world-leading fat-freezing process which provides safe treatment with permanent results – this is the only fat freezing procedure in the world with FDA clearance and LASE is the only clinic between York and Edinburgh which offers it.

Ahmed and Lisa are passionate about what they do and pride themselves on delivering excellent results for patients and maintaining incredibly high standards.

At the heart of everything the clinic offers is the welfare of the patient – the team will always cross refer between our surgical and non-surgical capabilities to ensure the client is given the best advice to ensure they walk away happy.
