Laser Hair Removal Tips For The Summer

Laser Hair Removal In London With LightSheer Diode Laser | Body Silk Clinic, South-East London, Hither Green, Lewisham, Blackheath

If you have been thinking of getting started with permanent laser hair removal treatments at this time of the year, you should be aware of a few useful laser hair removal tips to make sure that your skin is safely treated and does not suffer from any unpleasant surprises as a result of you not doing your homework before committing to laser hair removal. Planning beach holidays usually includes concerns about taking care in advance of unwanted hair. A laser hair removal vs IPL option would require keeping the area of concern away from the direct sun exposure 4 weeks before and after your laser hair removal treatment. Bearing that in mind, the safest body areas for laser hair removal would be underarms and laser hair removal for bikini, provided that you are going to cover them at all times during the entire holiday. 

If you are interested to find out more information about laser hair removal and where to start from, book your consultation and a laser patch test with one of our consultants today or read other articles in our blog.

Facials | Body Silk Clinic, South-East London, Hither Green, Lewisham, Blackheath, SE13

Everybody has heard of free radicals and antioxidants, but very few people have a clear understanding what these actually are and what effect they have on our health and the process of ageing.

Free radicals are the molecules that are missing one electron. The ions of the air, water or other substances that consist of such molecules are positively charged. Once they get into our blood stream through the lungs and then through the blood circulation, they behave like “vampires”, trying to steal a free electron to compensate for the missing one that they lack. And they steal it from our defenceless cells. As a result, the cells loose moisture (hyaluronic acid). This stimulates ageing. The moisture is being suckout out of the cells by free radicals like with a pump.

Antioxidants, on the contrary, are the molecules that have an extra electron. A concentration of such molecules makes the air or water or skin products live and fresh. In nature, such air can be found in the mountains, near the coast, in the woods, etc. The negatively charged ions are very mobile. Once they get in contact with the lungs, they travel to the cells of the body and "donate" a free electron to them. They behave like “donors”. Not only they neutralise free radicals that way, but also have rejuvenating effect on us.

That is why, at Body Silk Clinic, during our facials and body treatments, such as LPG non-invasive facelift, prescribed facial and Endermologie treatment combined with an ultrasound booster, we use products that stimulate antioxidant activity. During your consultation. you will also get a nutrition advise to help your body detox and rejuvenate while undergoing a course of treatments.

7 Tips When Considering Laser Hair Removal

Laser Hair Removal| Body Silk Clinic, South-East London, Hither Green, Lewisham, Blackheath, SE13

When it comes to laser hair removal, there is a few things to keep in mind, namely, to stay away from the following:

  1. wax or pluck your hair out 4 weeks before and 4 weeks after the laser hair removal treatment. The laser needs to "see" the dark pigment in the root of your hair in order to destroy the blood supply to it and, therefore, stop the follicle producing hair. If you take out the hair root, there will be no pigment for the laser to "see" and the treatment will not work;
  2. sunbathe or be in the direct sun exposure 4 weeks before and after the laser treatment. During a laser hair removal treatment, melanocytes get activated. By exposing the treated area (and the area to be treated) by laser to the sun, melanocytes get activated even more that increases the risk of hyperpigmentation and even burns ;
  3. take supplements containing vitamin D two weeks before and after a laser treatment as it activates melanocytes that can increase a risk of skin damage during a laser treatment;
  4. pick on shedding hair after a laser hair removal treatment. It may increase the risk of infection;
  5. go to steam room or sauna or a swimming pool or take a hot shower a few days after a laser treatment as it may lead to skin burns due to increase skin sensitivity after the laser treatment;
  6. wear tight or rubbing clothes right after the treatment to avoid friction that may lead to skin irritation and and may cause substantial burns to the epidermis;
  7. apply deodorants or other perfumed substances on the lasered areas. It will irritate the skin that is sensitive after a laser treatment.

What Is A Diagnostic Peel?

Skin Peels Facials Anti-Ageing Rejuvenation | Body Silk Clinic, South-East London, Hither Green, Lewisham, Blackheath

If you have not heard about a diagnostic peel, you may want to read on till the end of this article. A diagnostic peel is a skin peel treatment that tests the health of your skin cells and identifies how much your skin can take in one treatment to rejuvenate it without damage. The basic cocktail of a fruit peel will test which areas of your face are ready for a more advanced treatment and which one of them need preparation before going ahead with anything stronger. HL cocktail of fruit peels is the most advanced method to do it.

After the first layer of the peel is applied, it gives an indication as to which areas have aged more than the others. The way to establish it, is to see which areas turned slightly pink. You must also get a heating sensation. The skin will feel hot but not unbearable. If the skin reacts with getting slightly pink and hot, it means that the skin cells in this area are not as damaged as the ones in the areas that did not respond to the first application at all. By skin damage, we mean premature ageing, free radicals, environmental damage or damage from the UV - you name it! Your therapist will be able to follow the first application with a slightly stronger cocktail if the above reactions are not observed. The first session may sometimes get up to 4 applications depending on the way your skin responds.

Although the initial HL fruit peel is diagnostic, you will have visible results after just one session. The skin will have a beautiful glow, will feel lighter, moisturised, supple with the pores reduced. The skin will feel clean and alive. Your therapist may advise you to come back in a few days for a restoration treatment that will include lots of moisturising products and the products that are hyaluronic-based in order to hydrate every cell recovering from the initial treatment. As a home care, you will have to apply a hydrating restoring gel every few hours for the first 3-5 days after the treatment.

HL fruit skin peels have lots of scientific research behind them and make a visible difference to the way your skin looks.

Obagi Nu-Derm and Obagi Blue Peel | Body Silk Clinic, South-East London, Hither Green, Lewisham, Blackheath

We receive a fairly large number of enquiries from our patients requesting a strong skin peel treatment, such as Obagi Blue Peel, strong glycolic peel or a treatment with a dermal roller, because they heard that it can be a powerful tool to help eliminate various skin conditions and impurities, as well as to substantially rejuvenate the skin. Yet not many people are aware that skin needs a substantial preparation before any serious treatment can be carried out. Otherwise, the patient may end up with hyperpigmentation or even scarring or other unwanted skin damage. To avoid this from happening, it is a good idea to take the preparation stage seriously.

For instance, a patient needs at least 16 weeks of being on Obagi Nu-Derm or Obagi Fx protocol before he or she can consider Obagi Blue Peel. Did you know that after being on Obagi Nu-Derm or Obagi Fx for a required period of time, over 90% of patients do not actually need Obagi Blue Peel as Nu-Derm or Fx clears the majority of skin concerns. Obagi Blue Peel may be needed in the cases of severe skin damage that Obagi Nu-Derm may not be able to overcome completely. Your Obagi skin consultant will be able to advise you about it.

Endermologie And Water Drinking

Endermologie LPG Lipomassage Cellulite Slimming | Body Silk Clinic, South-East London, Hither Green, Lewisham, Blackheath

The expression “it is healthy to drink plenty of water” has become so over-used nowadays that many people stopped paying attention to it. So, why is it so healthy to drink plenty of water? And is it really?

When our Endermologie clients decide to embark on a course, the first thing that they are advised about is to become more aware of what they eat and drink during their 8 weeks of being on a course. Plenty of pure water is absolutely essential to help the body eliminate toxins and waste substances accumulated in the tissue as a result of eating salty, fatty and processed foods - most of food that we eat in the civilised world contains salt and processed sugar that our body ends up storing after many years of consuming such foods. When a person starts an Endermologie treatment, her or his lymphatic system and blood circulation are being stimulated that promotes release of old toxins from the tissue that need to be eliminated from the body through the excretory system. Drinking plenty of pure water - preferably distilled or at least from the filter of reversed osmosis that allows only H2O molecules through - ensures proper cleansing, hydration and effective neutralisation of free radicals that make our cells age.

If you stop eating salt, processed sugar and processed fats (especially transfats) and start drinking plenty of pure water (1.5 litres a day), include green smoothies in your diet, the results from your Endermologie treatments will be substantially enhanced. You are likely to see a visible difference in just a few sessions.

If you are interested to find out more about how Endermologie treatments can transform you, book your consultation with one of our Endermologie consultants today or read other articles about it here.

Laser Hair Removal In Summer?

Laser Hair Removal | Body Silk Clinic, South-East London, Hither Green, Lewisham, Blackheath

When the summer is on its way, a lot of people suddenly realize that they need to get ready for the "right" beach look towards their summer holiday. The "right" look often includes hair free body areas and the body areas free from ingrown hair. The best solution to it is laser hair removal, but there is a few things to bear in mind.

It is better to start getting ready in advance as you are not allowed to expose the areas of concern to the direct sun 4 weeks before and after a laser treatment. Why? You do not want to increase the risk of getting burnt during your holiday or get hyperpigmentation on the vulnerable skin that has been treated with a laser. The sun promotes heat and further activates melanocytes inside the skin that has lately been exposed to the heat from a laser. So, stay away from the direct sun exposure for a minimum of four weeks before and after the treatment.

Often the areas, such as underarms and intimate areas can be lasered less than 4 weeks towards your beach holiday as they do not get direct sun exposure easily. Areas that are more vulnerable, such as face, legs, arms, back and chest, must be considered with extra care as they are very difficult to protect from the UV while spending time on the beach. If you decided to go ahead with a laser hair removal treatment in summer, make sure that you have those 4 before-and-after-safety-weeks and use a minimum SPF50 sun protection at all times.

You are welcome to book a laser patch test and a consultation online. Bear in mind that a patch test must be carried out 72 hours before the actual treatment.
