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? To disable a hair shaft for good, a good laser should have an optimal wave length. If the beam is too short or too long, it will miss its target and will only stimulate blood supply to the follicle that can result in a fairer hair colour and multiple hair, growing out of the same follicle instead of hair being disabled permanently. This is the last thing a client wants from a laser treatment.

So what is an optimal laser to achieve permanent hair removal? A laser that has the wave length of 800nm (newton meters). This is the optimal wavelength to reach out to the hair follicle through the dark pigment of the melanin in the hair root to permanently cut off the blood supply to the hair follicle and, therefore, permanently stop hair growth. LightSheer Diode Laser is exactly the machine one wants to achieve this.

Have you had laser hair removal treatments before with LightSheer or some other laser? Did it work? We would love to hear about your experience!

Please, watch the video for find out more about permanent laser hair removal by LightSheer Diode Laser, and reach out to discuss it in more details. Our telephone line is  0207 283 5800 or drop us an email today to discover your options.

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.

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.

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.

3. Drink plenty of clean water (chloride and fluoride free). Not many people know that drinking plenty of water is necessary not just for keeping your body hydrated. Water helps flush out toxins out of the tissues and in between the cellular spaces. Don't cheat by replacing water with tea, coffee, bottled drinks or juices. When we clean our house, it does not occur to us to use anything else but water to make sure that we do not leave the surfaces sticky. The same applies to our body.

4. Reduce your stress levels if you can. Some people when under pressure, start eating more, using food, especially sugary ones, for comfort. If you cannot resist, eat a banana or other fruit instead of chocolate or a biscuit

5. Contrast shower in the morning stimulates blood circulation and oxygenates the cells. Apart from boosting your immune system, it will help metabolism, prevent cellulite and more hormonal fat in stubborn areas, such as abdomen, thighs and bottom. If you are struggling to get rid of the latter, consider lipomassage by Endermologie that is a wonderful booster and works wonders for the most stubborn areas.

6. Consider massage and body wraps to detoxify your body and help the toxins out through your lymphatic system.

The beauty market these days offers endless products claiming to achieve rejuvenation wonders. Pretty bottles from well-known brands scream out about an amazing effect for skin if used on a regular basis. Unfortunately, many consumers fall into this trap set up by marketing specialists for a simple reason of being unaware of the basic anatomy of skin.

The truth is that skin ageing happens on cellular level deep in the dermis. The maximum that any cream (with the exception, perhaps, Obagi, but it is a subject for a separate post) can achieve is moisturising, cleansing or protecting of the top part of the very superficial layer of epidermis. To get down to the dermis and give a boost to the cells, called fibroblasts, one needs to have either an invasive treatment (dermal fillers, mesotherapy, dermal roller, etc) or any other treatment that would give a boost to the cells down there, such as non-invasive facelift, also known as LPG Liftmassage, that mechanically stimulates the deeper layers of the skin tissue.

And although the effect is visible after one session, a course of 10 sessions will give longer-term results. It is like going to the gym - the effect is there after one visit, but to get your muscles toned nicely, a few work-outs will be necessary, as our tissue has "memory" the same way our muscles have "muscle memory".

The treatment is only £65 per session and 10 sessions are available at the price of 9! 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

Out of all skin problems, blackheads are the most frequent skin concern for both men and women. Even if you have enjoyed a fairly good skin for most of your life, at some point you will experience the appearance of a few "black dots" on your nose, forehead, chin or sides of the cheeks.

Why do blackheads occur? When your skin lacks moisture (due to ageing or hormones or stress, etc.), the skin will try to compensate it by producing more oil. As the oil glands are located predominantly on the nose, forehead, chin, sides of the cheeks, inside the ears, chest and middle of upper back, the pores in those body areas get enlarged if the oil production noticeably increases because of lack of moisture inside the skin.

Fortunately, there is a solution. First of all, you need to ensure that your eat a balanced diet, that contains plenty of fruits, vegetables (preferably raw) and most importantly greens. Remember that skin is the biggest organ on our body that reflects what is going on inside. If you eat too much food containing too much animal fat and protein and very little veggies, your incretion systems will be overloaded with accumulated waste and toxins. Combined with not drinking enough water to help the internal cleansing processes, will result in your skin reacting to it at some point in some shape of form. Often, enlarged pores are the first symptom of more skin concerns to follow.

You would help your skin greatly by having regular deep cleanse. A proper deep cleansing facial with steam and extraction would be very beneficial to keep the skin free of excess oil and micro dirt that gets stuck to it while you function during the day and night. Such facial treatment once or twice every 4-6 weeks, proves to make a substantial visible difference to the appearance of pores and ensures the skin free of blackheads and whiteheads. A deep cleansing facial takes only one hour, but keeps your skin happy for many weeks. Book one online today at only £59 or drop us an email if you want to chat before booking your appointment

Endermologie for Cellulite | Body Silk Clinic, London

Did you know that hormonal fat in its chemical composition is different from the fat that we gain from food? It is also located deeper than normal fat. These deposits of hormonal fat in the septae (connective tissue) are what is called cellulite. Fat deposits are pushing against the network of connective tissue causing ripples and bumps on the skin.

Hard to believe that approximately 90% of women over twenty have to face the problem of cellulite at some point in their life. If you are one of them and would like to learn about the most effective ways to get rid of cellulite quickly, come for a FREE consultation about cellulite with one of our consultants.

Laser Hair Removal | Body Silk Clinic, London

Acne scars can be distressing and stigmatising, especially when on the face. Acne scars occur when pustules turn into nodules and cysts. Scarring is the result of skin damage during the healing of active acne. This process produces two typical scar types: atrophic and hypertophic scars depending on wheather there is a gain or loss of collagen in the healing process. The damage caused initially by inflammation of a blocked sebaceous gland causes blanching and vasoconstriction (narrowing of the blood vessels).

At Body Silk we offer Dermal Roller that employs advanced medical micro-needling. It is a procedure that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally, thereby creating smoother, healthier, clearer younger-looking skin with acned scars disappearing.

Water retention in the summer months can be caused by heat, alcohol consumption on holidays and during flying. When fluid accumulates abnormally throughout the body, it is known as water retention. The human body, as solid as it may seem, is mostly comprised of water in the blood, tissues and even muscles. If you suffer from water retention, keep in mind the following food to help you fight it: celery, watermelon and parsley. These foods are considered as natural diuretics that you can enjoy eating in small amounts to help you reduce the water hoarding that your body is engaging in.

If you suffer from body water retention, you can really benefit from Lymphatic drainage by LPG Endermologie. Face water retention is very effectively treated by LPG Liftmassage.

Hormonal hair growth, especially on the face, is not limited to just PCOS but also to adrenal problems, thyroid disorders and more. Females with hormonal imbalance will often have hirsuitism involving the upper lip, chin, neck, stomach, breasts, and stomach. Most of the women with this condition can experience lack of confidence and depression during their life.

“I spend half an hour every morning plucking out hairs from my face, otherwise I can’t bear to let anyone see me.” (Christine, 31)

“No-one understands what I’m going through. All my confidence has gone and I can’t see any way out.” (Laura, 27)

Laser hair removal can help reduce unwanted hair. If done regularly it can keep hair growth under control; instead of waxing and tweezing can be very affective for weeks or even months.

**At Body Silk, as a Pcos client you can get 20% discount for each session of laser hair removal.

Pulling, plucking, shaving and waxing hair - is it safe to say that women go to great lengths to stay smooth and hair-free? Not always. Modern men show a lot more interest in their appearance and do worry about how to look their best, including the issues related to unwanted hair. Excess hair in men can be caused by high testosterone levels but it can also be caused by genes, age and ethnicity. Waxing still remains very popular amongst men's hair removal choices. However, it can be associated with regular painful visits to a grooming salon and gets pricy in the long run. This is when men may think of a laser hair removal option. And although, it may seem to look one step too far at first, in reality, there is no reason why men should not get the same long-lasting, no-hassle benefits as their female counterparts. Laser hair removal really works nicely for men's unwanted hair, provided they choose the right laser for their hair removal. If you want to know which laser is the best to help you get rid of unwanted hair permanently, you should check out this video.

Althought production of new collagen and hyaluronic acid slows down from the age of 26, face wrinkles in most cases start bothering our patients from 34 onwards. Fortunately, these days cosmetic industry offers a number of effective non-invasive options to wake up 'sleeping' fibroblasts - the cells in our skin tissue responsible for production of three 'ingredients of youth' - collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. 

One of these non-invasive treatments is LPG Facelift that is specifically designed to stimulate fibrolasts' 'workout' and keep them 'awake'. 

Lpg Facelift treatment provides multi-dimensional stimulation on the skin’s surface for intense physiological awakening: as if their youth has been restored, the stimulated fibroblasts operate from within to produce a true metamorphosis of the skin.

Fast and efficient, the Lpg treatment is part of a healthy lifestyle too through the ability to make the lymphatic system detox. A course of 10 sessions is recommended for long-term results.

Book your Consultation with one of our skin specialists in the City of London.

Wrinkles around the eyes and frown lines are often a result of stress, smoking and environmental damage. But a number of bad every day habits can equallly contribute to a tired and older look. We have identified 3 common ones that a lot of people have. If you are someone who is worried about the wrinkles about your eyes to become more prominent, you should stop:

1) skipping SPF every morning: the sun causes your skin to age, because it activates free radicals. It is as simple as that. The skin around your eyes is thinner than anywhere else on the body, so it is more vulnerable to ageing. Choose a good SPF product to use and make sure that you do not leave the house without your SPF on. Obagi SunShield and a range of Heliocare sun blocks are worth looking at. Combined with the Obagi Professional-C Serums, which we consider as the best antioxidant we have tested so far, a small amount of SPF every morning will make a huge difference to the way your skin looks.

2) sleeping on your tummy: when you sleep with your face down, one side of it is resting on the pillow and is squished for a long time at night. By constant squishing your face that way, you cause your skin to crease that can eventually turn into wrinkly tissue. Did you notice those sleep lines in the morning? Start falling asleep on your back from tonight!

3) rubbing your eyes: chances are that you rub your eyes at least once a day. It is an instinct! It feels good to rub your eyes when you are tired or when your eyes are irritated, but it is a habit that you must end if you want to avoid looking older! The skin around the eyes is very thin, so when you rub it, you cause folds to form. You can consider fixing it with a Botox treatment, of course, but isn't it worth trying to pay more attention to eliminating a harmful habit first?

Endermologie Cellulite| Body Silk Clinic, London

Summer is coming..!

It is a common belief that being overweight is the main cause of cellulite. This is absolutely false! Even skinny people can suffer from Celluite. Diet, genetics and age can play a major role in causing the condition that affects 85% of women today.

Drinking plenty of water, exercising and following a balanced diet are crucial to combat cellulite effectively. However, it could be still not enough... Stabborn fat clogged in the deep tissue, can be difficult to melt. This is where you may need to think about one of the most powerful boosters - Endermologie - to achieve your cellulite-free results. Depending on how severe your cellulite is and where you suffer from it at most, an Endermologie specialist would determine your bespoke treatment plan. You may be pleased to see immediate improvements after only one treatment, but bear in mind that your fat tissue as well as your muscles have memory, so you'd better adhere to your treatment plan and complete it in full to make sure that you 'train' your tissue during your Endermologie course 'to remember' the way you want your tissue to function long term. 

If you are thinking about something more drastic, such as surgical liposuction, your surgeon may refer you to have a few Endermologie sessions to prepare your body for the surgery or, if you already had liposuction, he may prescribe you Endermologie post-liposuction course to make sure that your body gets rid of unwanted post-surgery liquid in the tissue quicker to eliminate the risk of the related complications.

Consult an Endermologie specialist to see if Endermologie is right for you.

Have you had Endermologie before or know other effective ways to fight cellulite? Please, comment! We'd love to hear about your experience!

How fond of waxing and shaving are men? Not at all.

How many times any of you wished you no longer had to shave, pluck or wax unwanted hair?

It can be every 2 or 3 days, sometimes even every day. And we know...it can be veeery frustrating. Not just because it is time consuming. Shaving and waxing can also irritate skin and cause uncomfortable pimples on your face, neck, chest, back and shoulders. Shaving yourself on the back, for instance, cannot guarantee perfect results and you can end up having patchy left behind. The back is especially difficult to take care of by yourself. Laser hair removal solves this problem. This is why the most popular laser treatments are for back and chest, followed by the face area treated for unwanted hair.

With Diode Lightsheer Laser Machine our male clients can rest assured to get the best results possible; we usually recommend a course of 4 sessions for a permanent effect. We always test your suitability for any of our laser treatments with a Patch Test.

Facials For Men In London City By Body Silk Clinic

Men have obviously higher testosterone levels than women. That explains why men's skin produces more oil.

Oil can clog pores and can lead to blackheads (and whiteheads!). A good extraction and gentle but effective exfoliation is what men's skin needs in order to remove blackheads and impurities. Use of incorrect exfoliation and cleansing products at home can sometimes do more harm than good - a risk of removing vital skin lipids and scooping the unnecessary layers and exposing the skin to potential damage. The result - dry and sensitive skin with or without occasional breakouts as well as pigmentation for darker skin type. From experience, men often have a wrong impression of their own skin type. It is worth paying a visit or two to a cosmetologist (make sure it is a good one!) to make sure that you do the right things to the most presentable part of your body - your face!  You may be pleasantly surprised to know that good clinics that offer facial treatments, have a range of facials for men - each of them designed towards individual skin requirements. The result is clean, healthy and younger looking skin.

Skin specialists at Body Silk Clinic point out that whether it is everyday or every two weeks, the continuous dragging of a razor across sensitive facial skin can cause irritation.

Razor burn, inflammation, and irritation from shaving over pimples are common consequences of shaving. A facial will deep cleanse bumps and soothe the irritated skin. The combination of exfoliation, essential oils, masks, and moisturisers for men that our practitioners apply will address side effects from regular shaving and make your skin healthier than ever.

Believe it or not, the smoother your skin, the better and more comfortable will be your shaving! Even if you are not worried about wrinkles, a bespoke facial would make an amazing difference. What is also impressive is visible results right after the treatment. Isn't it worth giving it a try?

Pigmentation Treatments By Body Silk Clinic London

Everybody knows how frustrating uneven colour and dark patches of unwanted pigment can look. There might be dozens of reasons what can trigger it (it is the whole separate subject of the discussion of which we will speak in our future articles), but the underlying mechanism of any hyperpigmentation is always the same - excessive and uneven production of melanin by the melanocytes of the melanin membrane located between the epidermis and dermis inside the skin.

Hyperpigmentation can occur on almost any part of the body but the most common parts are face, neck and hands. Treating hyperpigmentation is a multi-staged process. One of the most critical steps is exfoliation. A good exfoliation will break down and dissolve bad skin cells, aiding the cell turnover. The best way to achieve this is through skin peels. Skin peels, such as glycolic peels or Obagi Blue Peel Radiance, can be performed by a skin practitioner in a clinic or carried out at home as part of prescribed skin regimen, like in the case of Obagi Nu-Derm (please, also refer to our earlier publication about the treatment of pigmentation by Obagi Nu-Derm.

Another important aspect of battling hyperpigmentation is the use of the SPF protection. Again, it is a topic for another discussion, but long story short, a good sunblock is 50% success in treating pigmentation. Skipping SPF while fighting pigmentation is stopping by for a burger on the way home from the gym. SPF must be used regardless of the weather. It is absolutely crucial to use a sun protection cream of SPF 50 with high percentage of zink concentration every day.

More information about SPF protection can be found in our online shop. Do some homework and see which SPF is best for you

If you ever suffered from hyperpigmentation on your skin and manage to keep it under control, we would love to hear your feedback. Please, leave a comment and  share your experience with us and our readers.

Facial Treatment At Body Silk Clinic, London

If the relaxing experience is the only reason why you get your facials, here is what you should know a good facial can provide for you:

1) First of all, a truly skin cleansing that you cannot achieve with your home products.

2) A softening of your skin and removal of blackheads and whiteheads with manual extraction (if you do it yourself, there is a risk of irritating your skin and having redness for a few days afterwards).

3) Exfoliation is one of the key steps in a healthy skincare regimen. A high quality facial will provide you with a thorough exfoliation treatment. Being the largest organ of our body, our skin builds and sheds millions of cells every day. It is important to regularly slough off the dead skin cells in order for new, healthy cells to grow. The result of the right exfoliation is the improvement of dehydrated skin and restoring skin's natural barrier function.

4) Reduction of wrinkles with professional face massage with a firm but gentle touch. During a facial, the massage sequence that an Aesthetician performs is entirely designed to detoxify the body by increasing circulation to achieve skin rejuvenation. If you are interested in experiencing a good facial in action, Book a Consultation with one of our advanced therapists to discuss your skin requirements towards a bespoke facial especially designed for you.

Acne Scars Treatments At Body Silk Clinic, London

Scars from acne can feel like a double punishment — first you had to deal with the pimples, now you have marks as a reminder. Acne can be a painful skin condition, and the scars afterwards are a bad reminder of that. While most acne scars will fade on their own after several months, there are certain things you can do to help speed up the process and avoid further hyper-pigmentation. You will not be able to make acne scars disappear in one night, but there is one treatment that can really help: Dermaroller Therapy will certainly produce a noticeable difference over time. This treatment employs advanced medical micro-needling, a procedure that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally, thereby creating smoother, healthier, clearer and younger-looking skin. Preparation of the skin with Obagi Nu-Derm for at least 6 weeks towards your Dermaroller treatments seriously boosts the effect from the Dermaroller treatment.

Smiling Contributes To Mimic Wrinkles | Body Silk Clinic, London

You may be surprised to know that smiling is not always is positive thing from the aging point of view. After we hit 26 years of age, our skin loses its elasticity and firmness. Free radicals become more active. The collagen that provides a supportive structure for the skin starts to break down and the skin is struggling to build it back up again. As a result, we start getting wrinkles. Smiling, frowning and other habitual facial expressions make these wrinkles more prominent. Lines between the eyebrows (frown lines) and lines jutting from the corner of the eyes are thought to be the result from facial muscle contractions. Is it posiible to slow down the aging process? Yes. With a number of ways. Apart from a surgery solution, Botox is, of course, the most common one that everyone can think of. However, not everyobe is prepared to go ahead with injections. One of them is providing fitness for the skin tissue. Non - Surgical Facelift by LPG gives the same results as surgery. Our skin experts combine the treatment with Vitamin E and Vitamin C products, so that your skin would get the most out of each facelift session. Watch this video to see how LPG non-invasive Facelift can transform you.
