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.

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.

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

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 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 | 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? 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.

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.

If you are a woman over 30, there is 90% chance you suffer from cellulite. Did you know that women in the UK usually spend £30m a year on slimming creams? But sometimes exercise, diet or creams are not enough for stubborn areas, such as tummy, thighs and bum.

Lipomassage by Endermologie is the best treatment to eliminate stubborn fat that is resistant to physical exercise and dieting. The treatment naturally boosts production of collagen and endogenous elastin to tone and sculp the body's contour banishing unsightly cellulite. Visible results can be achieved just after a few sessions. Using patented technology, Lipomassage uses mecano-stimulation to naturally re-awaken fibroblasts deep within the dermis, triggering the elimination of fat by 70%. The machine heads feature two independent motorised rollers, each with its own miniature motor. No other method has been found to reliably and consistently reduce the appearance of cellulite as effectively as endermological massage so far.

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?
