Cold Weather Skin Savers!
Summer is officially over and with the colder weather approaching it’s never been a better time to start looking into skin saving treatments such as:
- Laser Hair Removal
- Laser Tattoo Removal
- Photo Rejuvenation
These 3 treatments are best done when the skin has as little tan as possible. Why?
When having Laser Hair Removal, Laser Tattoo Removal or Photo-Rejuvenation performed we are unable to treat any areas of the body that have been exposed to sunlight, fake tan or solariums. This is because the light of the lasers being used are attracted to the dark elements in the area being treated.
If the skin in the area where Laser Hair Removal, Laser Tattoo Removal or Photo-Rejuvenation is being treated is tanned then burning or discoloration may occur as the laser will also be attracted to the dark pigment in the skin.
So with the sun retreating into the autumn clouds that means less tanning and paler skin so it’s the perfect time to book in for:
Laser hair removal:
Laser hair removalinvolves the light of our Grade 4 Medical Grade Laser machines targeting the hair follicle, destroying it so that it never grows back. The darker the hair follicle the more effective laser hair removal is. Laser hair removal is the most permanent and convenient solution to hair removal.
Laser hair removal, often achieved with the use of our very effective and advanced Grade 4 Medical Grade Laser machines is suitable for many parts of the face and body with the most popular areas being bikini line, underarms, back, legs and upper lip.
Laser Hair Removal is much less painful than waxing or plucking completely eliminates painful nick and cuts and unsightly ingrown hairs caused by shaving. Laser Hair Removal can also eliminate unsightly and painful ingrown hairs. And prevent future ingrown hairs from appearing.
Laser Tattoo Removal:
If you’re thinking about getting rid of that tattoo then Laser Tattoo Removal may be the best option for you. Laser Tattoo Removal is a revolutionary method of removing unwanted tattoos while causing minimal damage to the area being treated. Laser Tattoo removal is performed with our Medical Grade Q-Switched Lasers and offers our clients a safe, almost virtually pain free Laser Tattoo Removal method that won’t cause scarring.
Past methods of removing tattoos have included dermabrasion (scraping off the top layer of the skin) Cryosurgery (freezing the skin then peeling away layers to eliminate the tattoo) or Excision (cutting the tattoo out). These methods caused scarring and were usually quite painful.
Our Laser tattoo removal specialists use Q-switched lasers that work by penetrating the skin and breaking up the tattoo pigments into smaller pieces which assist the cells to clear these smaller pigments from the skin, the pigments are absorbed into the bloodstream and are then flushed out of your system causing the ink to disappear.
Photo Rejuvenation is non invasive and performed with our Medical Grade Intense Pulsed Light or IPL. Photo Rejuvenation is an extremely effective treatment that can reduce the appearance of a number of skin concerns such as:
- Age Spots.
- Sun Damaged Skin
- Fine and coarse wrinkles
Photo Rejuvenation uses light to absorb melanin (the dark pigment in your hair and skin). This light converts to heat, which target the damaged areas and does not disrupt the skins surface. Like Laser Hair Removal, the machine used to perform Photo Rejuvenation is attracted to dark pigment and be performed on tanned skins that have had recent sun exposure or are affected by spray or self tanning.
If you’re wanting to have one of these treatments performed but are not sure what to start come and see one of our medically trained and highly qualified clinicians who are on hand to provide the best advice for what’s appropriate for your skin and hair type. With their professional assessment, and experience with thousands of patients, they’ll know how tanning will affect you both before and after Laser Hair Removal, Laser Tattoo Removal and Photo Rejuvenation.
