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

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.

If you are interested to find out more about skin rejuvenation and where to start from, book your consultation with one of our consultants today or read other articles in our blog.

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.

LPG Facelift | Body Silk Clinic, South-East London, Hither Green, Lewisham

Non-surgical natural anti-ageing treatments, such as LPG Facelift, are on the rise due to their dual action - they tackle lines, wrinkles and sagging skin while helping detox your body from within through the mechanical stimulation of the lymphatic system and blood circulation.

A well-known blogger and glamour journalist Max shares her very first experience of the LPG treatment at Body Silk Clinic, Hither Green, London SE13, in her story, called Beauty Inside Out.

If you are not prepared to consider surgical or inhectable options as yet, non-invasive Facelift by LPG is well worth considering.

If you would like to discuss it in more details, please call us 0207 283 5800 or drop us an email today to learn more about the treatment.

We cannot tell you how many clients came to us complaining that the laser hair removal treatments that they received elsewhere, worked very little or did not work at all, to achieve permanent hair reduction. When we ask which laser was used during the treatment, most of the people struggle to know. Meanwhile, this is the most and the first thing one should find out before committing to invest money and effort in permanent hair removal. Why is it so important?

Laser Hair Removal For Ingrown Hair

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

Laser hair removal clinics have seen an increase for the demand from the people experiencing ingrown hair. Why does ingrown hair occur? When hair grows into the skin after shaving or cutting it or when dead skin cells are blocking the hair to grow in a normal direction, a person will end up with a little bump on the skin. The problem eventually clears by itself. However, sometimes it gets aggravated, and makes it uncomfortable for the skin. Picking it or tweezing the hair out of the bump is tempting, but has a risk of inviting infection into the affected area that may even lead to folliculitis - inflammation around the hair caused by bacteria Staphylococcus aureus.

Laser hair removal can help the problem through disabling the hair growth permanently. The more contrast between the skin and the hair colour is - in other words, the darker pigment of the melanin in the root of the hair is compared to the skin tone - the better laser hair removal treatment will work. If you have some ingrown hair and would like to discuss it in more details, please call us 0207 283 5800 or drop us an email today to discover your options.

Online booking is also available.

Men's Grooming: To Wax Or Not To Wax

Male Waxing | Body Silk Clinic, South-East London, Hither Green, Lewisham

It has been a few years since it became fashionable for men to add body hair removal to their grooming routine. Waxing is a natural way to remove hair quickly and be hair free for a few weeks. It is important that wax is gentle and suits your skin, so that it does not cause allergic reactions. To ensure that this is the case, ask your therapist to use wax for sensitive skin. Harley wax is an excellent example of such wax type.

Get yourself to an experienced therapist who can minimise uncomfortable sensation during the treatment and remove hair without leaving some of them behind.

Ingrown hair often accompany men's skin. If you wax regularly and suffer from ingrown hair, consider at some point laser hair removal that will the subject of our next post.

Book one online today or drop us an email if you want to chat before booking your appointment.

Facial with Steam And Extraction | Body Silk Clinic, South-East London, Hither Green, Lewisham

We are still in January, but it is about time to start thinking of your next beach holiday. Natural ways to slim down include:

1. Exercise and move around. Gym and jogging are the easiest options. Make it a habit to get off the train or a bus a couple of stops towards your home and walk. Walk up and down the steps of the escalators in public places and public transport. Use half of your lunch break to go out for walk.

2. Eat organic food Processed sugar, cakes, white bread, pizza and dairy (cheese especially) should be substantially reduced if not excluded completely from your diet. Replace them with natural honey, dried (unsulphated) and fresh fruits, fresh organic vegetables. Green smoothies and cold pressed carrot and apple juices in big quantities daily are the best.
