Let's cut through the bull ....!
Everyday clients tell me how confused they feel about what treatments to undertake, who’s advice to follow & what to put on & into their skin. There is no doubt ‘beauty’ industry marketing, ‘fountain of youth’ promises & lack of integrity - all come together to form a perfect storm of confusion for most clients. My goal has always been to cut through the bull we all hear on a daily basis to educate clients, so they can in turn make informed decisions about what treatments they undertake & what they put on & into their skin. So let’s start at the beginning, with your skin function ……..
Scientific research into the skin and its function indicates that there is an abundance of cell-to-cell communication. If we can deliver active ingredients to the deeper layers of the epidermis (stratum spinosum) we are in turn supplying these cells with all the nutrients they require to function in optimal health and to make their return journey to the outer most layer of our skin (stratum corneum) easier, thus providing you with a balanced, healthy and glowing complexion.
The aim of any skin care clinician when treating skin should always be to maintain the skin barrier in its natural condition. This can only be achieved using external agents that are able to repair the natural barrier and importantly, will not impair regeneration from within. We have all heard it seems every other person saying “I have a peel once a month”, “micro-dermabrasion will fix everything” or “IPL Photo Rejuvenation is a quick fix” – all of which could not be further from the truth, as not all treatments & products are created equally. There are three simple words I would like you to apply to any treatment or product, they are Repair, Replenish & Regenerate. Keep reading here!
Why Choose IPL Hair Removal?
IPL hair removal is a great option for long-term and large area reduction/removal and is recommended by health professionals the world over. You’ll also need a minimum of 4-6 treatments. This is because each of the hairs on your body goes through three stages in its lifecycle, and you can only neutralise a hair in the active phase. At any one time only a maximum of 20% of the hairs on your body are in that phase, which is why you need at least 4-6 treatments. Once you’ve completed the treatment cycle you can look forward to a lifetime of smooth skin with only an occasional maintenance treatment. Compare that to the cost of a lifetime of waxing.
