Laser hair removal – where to start and getting it right!

Are you fed up of constantly shaving or having to let your hair grow long before waxing? Well laser hair removal is the answer!
There are lots of hair removal lasers out there and it can be really confusing which one to choose. Here at Claritas Laser Clinic we have Soprano Ice which has the perfect and only wavelength to target and reduce your hair. Soprano Ice has an icy cold tip to keep you nice and comfortable whilst we zap away those hairs! As well as having one of the best lasers for hair removal at Claritas, you will also be treated by one of our medically qualified practitioners. Rest assured that you will be in safe hands.
Typically, we recommend that you come every 4 – 6 weeks for the first 8 treatments to achieve a great result, but this can vary from client to client. With all laser hair removal systems, top ups may be required to maintain those smooth legs…… we are sure though that you will be thrilled with the results that Soprano Ice can deliver!
If you’ve been thinking about laser hair removal and a hair-free summer, then talk to us now and book in for a free consultation. We can talk you through the process from start to finish, then you will know exactly what to expect.

Tattoo removal – does it hurt? We tell it like it is

>Having a tattoo can be exciting and brings a connection with the image that’s now a part of your  skin. But …
at some point, you just might regret this decision and wish you could make it go away.

Perhaps you’ve changed how you feel about your tattoo. Or maybe the subject is no longer relevant. Or it’s just that the artwork was never quite right.

If this is you, you are not alone!  Almost 1 in 5 people are unhappy with at least one of their tattoos.

Tattoo regret pale

You can do something about that tattoo though so don’t despair.

If you’ve done your research, you’ll realise that the best way to remove it without the risk of permanent scarring is with laser treatment.

For many, it is the fear of the pain. So allow us to share some experienced reassurance…

There is no getting away from the fact that some pain is involved with tattoo removal. As technology has advanced, laser treatment has become much more tolerable and many of our clients liken the sensation to when their tattoo was first done. The BIG difference is that it is so much faster!  Clients who have been treated with older lasers, for instance Q-switched, and then PicoSure notice the positive difference with this contemporary technology.

For example, a small tattoo of 3cm square would take about a minute to treat.

Throughout the process an ultra-cold air jet cools and numbs the skin. This counteracts the heat of the laser and helps protect the skin whilst the laser targets the ink. Contrary to some people’s mistaken belief, the tattoo is not ‘burned off’.

If even a minute of pain seems unbearable, or your tattoo is larger, then there are numbing creams that can be applied to the skin 30 minutes before treatment – these reduce rather than eliminate discomfort.  Alternatively, for complete pain elimination, you can have injections of local anaesthetic. We are fully trained in all of this.

Hopefully, this has helped to calm any concerns you have but the best reassurance will come from talking through your situation with one of our team here at Claritas Laser Clinic. We are experienced, professional and kind and, importantly, understand how you might be feeling and quickly put you at ease.

Your first consultation is free so you can see how clinic, see how we work and then make your decision.

Call 01480 214442 for a free consultation or book on-line here and take that step today.

Delighted after just one treatment!

When you can’t read the writing any more then it’s time to do something about it.
Our client couldn’t be more pleased with the results here on her collar bone.
“I literally can’t believe the difference after one session with PicoSure compared to other methods.”
Have a chat to us today and make a difference to you.

“Much less painful than I thought.” Ashleigh is happy

Ashleigh was so pleased with her first Picosure treatment and finally her ink has started to disappear.

“It wasn’t half as painful and much faster than previous laser treatments. Even the same day, there was no discomfort.”

You know where to come to when you want to make that change.

No covering up embarrassing tattoos this summer. Oh no.

Three treatments and look at this.

Our client had this tattoo when she was 20 years old. Now she’s looking forward to getting her shoulders out in the sun this summer and so glad that she won’t have to cover up.

Clover be gone!

Lucky for some but not in this case.
This clover had to go and, after multiple treatments with a Q-switch laser, PicoSure clears the green ink on our client’s arm in just three sessions.
Result!

Never lose ‘Faith’. Unless you want to!

 

Faith just had to go for our client and look at the results after just four treatments with Picosure.

Nearly there. Impressive eh!

Support your skin and look and feel wonderful

Spring is well and truly here and summer is right around the corner. It’s the time of growth and new life but even Mother Nature enjoys a bit of rejuvenation and as we age, we need a bit of support too.

skin rejuvenation

How? We use pulses of laser light that reach deeply into the skin. Then the body’s natural healing process sweeps away older, damaged tissue and rebuilds it with fresh, new collagen and elastin—the crucial building blocks of smooth, youthful skin. Presto! You’re rejuvenated.

Ingrowing hairs giving you problems? Get rid of them right here

If you are one of the unlucky ones who develop ingrown hairs, life can be pretty miserable.

The skin around these hairs can swell to the size of a hazelnut and there’s often redness and tenderness, which can be really painful never mind unsightly.

However, help is at hand as laser treatment is recommended by dermatologists as the best way to prevent ingrown hairs.

Ingrown and normal hair

Ingrown and normal hair

So why do we get ingrown hairs? It happens when a new hair curls in on itself as it grows and the hair becomes trapped in the follicle. Cutting or shaving the hair too closely makes it easier for the sharpened end of the hair to pierce the skin and grow inwards.

Inflammation causes redness and localised swelling and, if infection sets in, then a pus-filled cyst can develop. Infection is usually due to staphylococcal bacteria entering the follicle and both shaving and waxing can be the causes.

Where do they most frequently occur? Ingrown hairs are most common in areas where hair is coarse or curly or with frequent shaving; in men, on their chin and neck (causing razor or shaving bumps) and on their backs and in women, in the pubic area, along the bikini line or the underarms.

If you’re prone to this, then Laser Treatment is the hair removal method of choice as the laser energy targets the hair follicle to prevent new hair growth.
