Hair growth is one of the most frustrating aspects of adult life. It’s a constant chore to shave or wax, and we often find ourselves stressing out about how we look and cursing hair for growing back so quickly. It’s for this reason, laser hair removal has become so popular in the last ten years and more and more people are turning to this new technology as a way to manage hair growth and see some long term results.

Once you’ve decided to go through with the treatment the question quickly becomes, ‘where should I go?’ and ‘who offers the best value?’. Here at Premier Laser we pride ourselves on our ability to not only provide the best service, with the best results but also offer it to you at a generous and affordable price. Below we are going to run through a few procedures, and why choosing the team here, over the competition is the right choice. For the purpose of the price comparison, all these prices are for single sessions.

Premier Laser and Northwood

Both London Premier Laser and Northwood offer laser hair removal however Premier Laser offers far more affordable costs than its competitor. There are five services that have been compared here, ‘Abdomen & Chest’, ‘Back & Shoulders’, ‘Back, Shoulders, Full Arms’, ‘Back, Shoulders & Upper Arms’ and ‘Full Back, Chest, Abdomen, Shoulders & Half Arms’.

Single Session Premier Laser Northwood
Abdomen & Chest £165 £220.00
Back & Shoulders £244 £420.00
Back, Shoulders & Upper Arms £278 £330.00
Back, Shoulders, Full Arms £329 £530.00
Full Back, Chest, Abdomen, Shoulders & Half Arm £450 £700.00

Northwood doesn’t offer combined packages for a number of these treatments, unlike Premier Laser and as a result, the price of the hair removal is often higher. This is particularly noticeable for the comprehensive ‘Full Back, Chest, Abdomen, Shoulders & Half Arms’ which is a full £250 cheaper at London Premier Laser. Furthermore, more straight forward sessions such as Abdomen & Chest is over 30% more expensive at Northwood.

Premier Laser and sk:n

Another competitor in the field of laser hair removal in London is sk:n, who has a number of clinics and like Premier Lasier provide an excellent service and yet, just like Northwood also falls short of our excellent value.

Single Session Premier Laser sk:n
Abdomen & Chest £165 £170
Back & Shoulders £244 £320
Back, Shoulders & Upper Arms £278 £515

As you can see Premier Laser comes out on top across the examples here, with a slightly cheaper cost for Abdomen & Chest, and a much cheaper cost for Back, Shoulders & Upper Arms. Again, Premier Laser offer this as an easy package with great value and is 50% less expensive than sk:n for tremendous quality.

Premier Laser and Pulse Light

For women’s hair removal, you can also look at Pulse Light who offer a similar service to London Premier Laser, however, in terms of quality and price, Premier Laser once again come out on top.

Single Session Premier Laser Pulse Light
Abdomen & Chest £165 £190
Back, Shoulders, Full Arms £329 £570
Full Body Top to Toe inc. Face £625 £730

The biggest comparison here is that Pulse Light also offers a full body service just like Premier Laser. This treatment is always likely to be the most expensive and this is reflected in the price, but unsurprising the value for money is still found at Premier Laser who charge £95 less than their rival.

Review

The price comparison is fairly comprehensive and the facts don’t lie; London Premier Laser is more affordable than any of its rivals as well as having a greater degree of expertise and better results. Therefore, if you are interested in seeing a specialist or booking any of the many services for women that are offered, then look no further than Premier Laser for care and cost.

With the big day approaching most brides have a huge amount to worry about, from the weather to the food and everything in between. However, how the dress looks, and in particular, how you feel in it is also a key concern in the year leading up to the wedding.

One of the elements that women fret about is body hair, and whether to shave, wax or in some cases undertake laser hair removal treatment prior to the wedding. In this post, we will provide you with a few pointers about the process ahead of your wedding day.

The Basics

First things first, how does laser hair removal work? Simply, you will have a number of sessions with an expertly trained practitioner who uses technology to emit wavelengths (beams of light) to target the hair follicles and prevent hair from growing.

The energy kills the hair follicles on your skin, and from here the hair begins to fall out (this can occur over a few days). Unlike waxing or shaving, the process is built for long term results and consequently, it has become incredibly popular for soon to be brides who don’t want to be waxing or shaving on their honeymoon immediately after the wedding!

The Process

If you are looking to have laser hair removal treatment prior to your wedding you will need between 10 – 12 months to get the process completed. The entire run consists of typically eight treatments which require six weeks between each one and whilst this may seem like a big commitment, the sessions themselves are fairly short and therefore won’t be time-consuming.

Furthermore, it is a small price to pay for having one less thing to worry about on your wedding day and honeymoon.

Moreover, you will want to have the sessions completed a few weeks before your wedding to avoid any complications such as itching or discomfort due to the fact hair is still falling out a few days after the treatment. Please be aware there can be a little pain associated with the treatment, however for any woman who has waxed you need not worry too much as comparatively, it is much easier.

It is also worth knowing what areas to focus on when getting the treatment. Thankfully the lasers used are so advanced that no area is off limits, so you can’t go wrong by focusing on the underarms, lower legs and bikini lines. However, it is worth noting, that the treatment is not suitable if you are either pregnant or have any tattoos (in the treatment area).

There are certain steps you will need to take prior to the appointment however and to ensure you get the best results and these include:

  • Avoid getting a sun tan before the treatment by using a high factor sunscreen
  • Don’t remove hair in other ways such as shaving, waxing or electrolysis during your treatment
  • If you are on blood thinning medication you’ll need to consult with your doctor and they can advise you on whether to suspend usage before the procedure

As ever, we’re always very happy to answer any questions about laser hair removal and you can always pop into any of our clinics for a free, no-obligation patch test and consultation to make sure you’re suitable for laser hair removal.

 

 

 

Not many people know there is any difference between IPL and laser hair removal technologies.  Often thought of as similar, the main difference between laser hair removal and IPL is in the results.  Laser will deliver more precise, longer lasting, better results.  Therefore understanding the differences between laser and IPL is key before deciding which laser hair removal clinic to visit.  Depending on what laser technology they are using will give you a guide to what results you should expect.  We’ve summed up everything you need to know about the laser hair removal treatments below.

UNDERSTANDING LASER HAIR REMOVAL

So how does hair removal work with a laser?  The crucial element in laser hair removal is matching specific wavelengths of light and pulse duration to the hair target.  Namely this means the melanin found in the hair follicle.  Melanin is a naturally occurring pigment in our skin and hair that is associated with determining colour.  Importantly for safety and comfort the laser energy is absorbed only into the follicle, thus avoiding the surrounding skin tissue area.  The process works by destroying the hair root.  This prevents blood flow to the follicle thus disabling the hair growth long-term.

UNDERSTANDING IPL HAIR REMOVAL

IPL technology, also known as intense pulsed light technology is actually not a laser treatment. In contrast to laser hair removal it uses a broad spectrum of light with multiple wavelengths.  This means it has more unfocused energy around the hair and skin area.  That’s why at Premier Laser in London we do not use IPL technology for hair removal treatments.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LASER HAIR REMOVAL AND IPL?

Typically, IPL technology will require more treatments and produces less effective hair reduction.  Laser technologies we work with in clinic are more advanced and effective than IPL counterparts with less discomfort (as they are fitted with integrated cooling systems).  In addition, it means our machines can treat more skin and hair types than an IPL would.  For this reason we utilise IPL for greater purposes such as skin rejuvenation.

WHAT IS THE BEST LASER FOR HAIR REMOVAL?

We use the leading most advanced laser hair machines to deliver optimum results.  Candela and Cynosure are two of the leading, most trusted suppliers of laser technology in the laser hair business.  The technologies combine both an alexandrite laser great for treating lighter skin types and a Nd:YAG perfect for treating dark skin.

CAN IPL AND LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREAT ALL SKIN TYPES?

It depends on the equipment if IPL or the laser machine can treat all skin types in the Fitzpatrick skin scale, so everyone is recommended to have a patch test & ask your therapist beforehand to enquire about the equipment.

HOW MUCH DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL AND IPL COST?

Prices can vary greatly depending on location or technologies used.  In London the cost of laser hair removal is very competitive which is why at Premier Laser we offer a price match guarantee to anyone interested in trying laser hair removal.  IPL will typically be cheaper than laser given that the results are less effective and in the long run would require a lot more treatments.  This is why typically we use our laser hair removal machines as opposed to IPL for getting rid of unwanted hair.

The Manzilian, aka ‘boyzilian’, ‘guyzilian’ or ‘manscaping’, whatever you call it is rising in popularity.  Trends suggest laser hair removal in 2019 is no longer a female dominated treatment.  In contrast male hair removal is on the up, so step aside ladies laser hair removal for men is here to stay.

What is a Manzilian?

First things first, just what is a manzilian?  The phrase is a combination of ‘man’ and ‘brazilian’.  The brazilian refers to a style of hair removal that leaves a small strip of hair above the female vagina.  Thus, manzilian was termed to describe the similar style but with reference to male anatomy.

Laser Hair Removal For Men

Historically laser hair removal has long been a beauty treatment linked with women.  However in recent years more men booking appointments to get their own ‘Manzilian’ is rivalling traditional conceptions of the male grooming industry.  First noticed in 2018 (see our male laser hair previous article here) the trend hasn’t stopped.  Similar to Brazilian laser hair removal for women, the Manzilian effectively and permanently removes hair around the pubic region.  The reasoning varies from aesthetic, hygiene, or to prevent side-effects from other hair removal techniques such as ingrown hairs.  Hair removal procedures using a laser has a long-lasting effect in comparison to other methods including shaving, waxing or trimming.  It’s quickly becoming the best option if you want effective results, long-term.  Here are our top 5 benefits of laser hair removal for men.

Top 5 Benefits of a Manzilian

1.  It removes ingrown hairs and prevents razor burn

Say goodbye to unsightly, red ingrown hairs or embarrassing ‘razor rash itch’.  Just 6-8 sessions of laser provides long-term, hair free results.  At most people tend to have an annual 30 minute top-up session to keep those hairs away.

2.  It saves time and money

Its thought traditional methods can cost us over £70,000 in a lifetime.  That is 8-10 full weeks of hair removal labour.  Long-term laser hair reduction takes 6-8, 30 minute sessions and results will render over 90% hair reduction.  A single session costs £50, with packages from just £400 (valid June 2019) here at London Premier Laser .

3.  It is 24/7 hair-free confidence

Planning hair removal prep for holidays is easy to plan, but for those unpredictable life moments, the impromptu skinny dip, strip-poker game or the night you end up without intending to go out-out, whatever life throws your way you have 24/7 hair-free confidence.

4.  Its less painful than alternative methods such as waxing

We all agree waxing can be painful. The hot wax ripped at speed away from our sensitive skin areas, ouch!  While laser hair may be uncomfortable (people describe this as having an elastic band pinged against the skin) it certainly is over quicker, in most areas people describe the hair removal process with lasers as pain-free.

5.  Its kinder to your skin

The benefits also include being kind to the skin.  The laser works by targeting the melanin, or pigment in the hair follicle.  In this manner, the light energy pulses safely destroy the hair follicle at the root, without damaging the surrounding tissue or skin.

If you’ve already managed to learn a little bit about the treatment and have taken our guidance in finding a great laser hair removal clinic in London, the next step is likely to be the consultation. Booking a consultation in advance of the treatment is usually a required and typically free. The consultation allows the clinic to best assess your needs and make sure that you are suitable to have laser hair removal treatments. For you, it’s a chance to see the clinic, meet the therapists and ask any other questions before making any final decision.

So, in light of this, this week’s blog article focuses on some ‘must-ask’ questions that you can put towards your practitioner when you get to the consultation.

Can I have Laser Hair Removal treatment?

Perhaps the most obvious and critical question is whether your skin and or hair type is suitable. With advanced technology most people can have laser hair removal however there are some instances where laser hair removal treatment is not recommended.  For example, white hair with no melanin cannot be targeted by any laser and therefore is not suitable to be removed via the laser hair removal process. Within the consultation process a free patch test is offered where we expose a small area of your skin to laser light. This also helps to calibrate the machine so that we can achieve the very best results bespoke to your skin and hair. It may be that you need laser hair removal for darker skin, again at Premier Laser we have invested in state-of-the-art technology so we can accommodate a variety of skin and hair colour and types.

How much does Laser Hair Removal cost?

Laser hair removal can cost from £44 to £3000 depending on which provider you choose, the area of treatment and how many sessions you’re planning to undertake. For example, if you have laser hair removal for your earlobes, nose or eyebrows it can cost as little as £44 for a session. If you want a full body (top to toe) package, then it can cost £2140 with our current special offers. Be sure to take a look at our laser hair removal pricing page for all of our latest costs.

What Laser Hair Removal technology / machines do you use?

Finding out what technology clinics use will give you a good indication about the quality of the clinic. If a clinic has a wide variety of lasers and regularly keep them up to date, it shows that they care about delivering the very best customer care, comfort and results. If the clinic is using a machine that is relatively old and unfavourably reviewed online, it may be a warning sign to look elsewhere. London Premier Laser regularly invests in the very best technology to ensure client comfort and results. You can take a look at our advanced laser hair removal technology online.

What are the side effects of Laser Hair Removal?

As mentioned before, we always undertake a patch test to check for any potential side effects or reactions to the laser. No clinic will claim that laser hair removal is totally pain free and without side effects. Some customers do experience slightly reddened skin after treatment, but this usually subsides very quickly within a few hours.  The pain of treatment has been likened to a rubber band ‘ping’ and is deemed much more painless than alternative hair removal options such as waxing.

How many Laser Hair Removal treatments am I likely to need?

Some customers may require multiple treatments before they see full results, some may require fewer. It all depends on your skin, hair, technology and area of the body. That’s why it’s important to always get an estimate after your patch test so that you can at least have a realistic expectation of the results.  Typically the average person will require around 6-8 sessions for the full effects however hair reduction is noted even after the first session.  Laser hair removal process uses multiple sessions as it’s important to catch all the hairs at the correct stage of the hair growth cycle.

Even if you have a consultation booked elsewhere and just want some guidance, always feel free to get in touch with our team. We have over a decade of experience, the very latest technology and are incredibly competitive with pricing. Contact us online, by phone or in clinic today.

Skin stripping is a common expression used to describe unintentionally harming and damaging your skin by using the wrong beauty or health products. If you use the wrong product (or too much of it!), you could strip away all the natural oils that protect your skin and keep it healthy.

For many years plenty of us have wrongly believed that oily skin is something to be avoided at all costs and can lead to things like acne and blemishes. However, it is these natural oils that actually keep the safe in good condition and protect the all-important skin cells beneath. It is one of the reasons that medical professionals always advise against new parents from using anything other than water to wash their new-borns skin. Removing the natural oils could permanently damage their baby’s skin in the long term. Whilst we all get older and our skin is exposed to more elements, the advice remains the same.

How do I recognise skin stripping?

If you’ve just used a product and feel like that your skin is tight, the chances are that you’ve stripped your face entirely of all those precious oils. Whilst you might mistake the tightness for suppleness, this is likely to be caused by simply drying your skin entirely.

What caused skin stripping?

In most cases, skin stripping is caused by either using wrong products for your skin or over-use of the right products. Items such as face wipes, cleansing products and skincare foam washes not only remove the natural oils found on your skin, but also potentially do some damage to the skin below. Whilst the short-term effect may be exactly what you wanted (dryer, smoother and the appearance of cleaner skin), the long term effects could be a lot worse.

Make-up wet wipes are by far the worst example of skin stripping. Harsher chemicals may be added to help remove all of the make-up content from your face. So, whilst you may be happy with the results of a strong make-up remover, it could also be removing important elements of your skin. However, sleeping in make-up can also be damaging to your skin as it can block the pore that help produce that much needed natural oils.

Another potential cause of skin stripping could be by showering too much! Assistant clinical professor of dermatology at UCLA, Dr. Carolyn Goh, has said that “staying in [the shower] too long washes the oils away from your skin”. So next time you have an acne breakout, you might want to think twice about doing to many face washes!

What are the effects of skin stripping?

Above all else, skin stripping removes your natural oils. These oils form a protective barrier against bacteria and other harmful elements that could not only damage your skin, but harm other body parts.

Removal of these essential oils can also cause dryness and potentially redness of the skin. If your skin isn’t properly hydrated, this can lead to cell degradation and even potentially peeling if the skin area and cells are dying. Dry, flaky and dead skin rarely feature in your beauty regime! However, it’s not just the appearance that can be harmed. Every time you lose those skin cells, you’re also losing valuable protection against the sun. Your skin acts as a natural barrier for the rest of your body and helps reduce the amount of UV rays that are absorbed.

What are the alternatives?

Something like IPL Skin Rejuvenation can be a better option than using the wrong or too much skincare product. IPL uses “Intense Pulsed Light” to target damaged skin areas and helps regenerate collagen, tighten and firm the skin and diffuses redness. It can also be used for dispelling broken veins, reducing fine lines, improving Rosacea and reducing the impact of sun/age spots and birthmarks.

You’re always welcome to speak to our team, either in one of our London clinics or over the phone, to find out more about how it works and whether it would be suitable for you.

For many of our thousands of patients, the biggest worry they have when they first learn about our laser hair removal treatment is the word “laser”. It brings with it connotations of super-hot and killer laser beams that can cut through metal in an instance. For many, this creates the perception that it’s unsafe, it’s super sore and it’s totally uncontrolled and scary. This couldn’t be further from the truth.

In fact, laser hair removal uses an incredibly focussed and incredibly controlled laser emission to target only the hair follicles and hair that you want to remove. The sophisticated technology ensures that the surrounding skin isn’t targeted and remains entirely safe and unaffected.

At Premier Laser, we take a number of steps to ensure your safety including:

Consultation

We take a number of precautionary steps to ensure that you’re suitable for laser hair removal treatment (not everybody is) and that we can provide the right recommendation that will yield you the greatest results. Our free and no-obligation consultations ensure that you have all the information you need and that we can deliver a tailor-made recommendation that meets your expectations and protects your skin.

Patch test

To ensure that the procedure will be successful (and you’re not wasting your money) we provide a free patch test for would-be laser hair removal patients, much similar to a hair colour patch test, we expose a small area of skin to ensure there is no adverse reaction. After a consultation, we expose a small area of your skin to the laser to ensure that there are no adverse reactions and that it’s safe for us to proceed with the treatment. This also allows us to properly calibrate the laser technology to your skin, so we can ensure the best comfort and results possible.

Advanced technology

Laser hair removal technology has been around for nearly 60 years. In that time, the technology has improved and changed to produce better results with the safest methods. At Premier Laser we’re committed to patient safety by ensuring that we use the very latest and safest technology to get you the very best results.

Not only do we use the very best laser hair removal technology in London, but we use a variety of machines, at a greater expense to our business, to ensure that we can offer the same services to patients with darker skin or fairer hair colour.

Expertise

The Premier Laser team is compromised of experienced aesthetics experts who have received specific training to help them do the very best job possible. We put all of our nurses, technicians and staff through rigours training to ensure they are well equipped on our technology and the very latest and safest methods. Furthermore, we ensure that they receive regular training as part of a refresher programme to keep them up to date on all the latest developments, technology and practices in the industry.

Regular safety checks

As part of our operations team, we ensure the safety of our patients by undertaking gruelling safety and maintenance checks across our team and technology. By ensuring that our equipment is always in the best condition, always well maintained and our working environment is as clean and safe as possible, we can help reduce the risk of any complications or poor results.

We know more than anyone else that there are a lot of various businesses and experts that offer laser hair removal as a treatment to customers. For some, it’s one of the main things that they do and have built their business around, for others it’s a handy “add-on” that they are experimenting with. In a marketplace where everyone has varying prices, experience and packages, it can be hard to make sure you pick the right one.

With that in mind, we’ve put together a few things to look for (or ask about) when you’re deciding to find the best place for laser hair removal treatment.

Experience levels

As hinted at in the introduction, the experience gap is often varied amongst laser hair providers. Some providers, such as ourselves, have undertaken tens of thousands of treatments for over a decade. For some however, they may be offering laser hair removal for the first time since it’s become such a trendy and convenient thing to offer. In laser hair removal, experience really counts. You want a practitioner who knows what they are doing, can answer all of your questions confidently and might even suggest that it’s not appropriate for your skin type based on previous results they’ve had. It’s always best to go with an experienced hand rather than an untried novice.

Technology

Like experience levels, the industry has a large mix of technologies and machines. Some technologies are state of the art and at the cutting edge, some are less reliable and potentially unsafe. If you pick a clinic that is using out-of-date technology not only might you not get the best results but you’ll also not enjoy all the improvements to comfort, efficiency and safety that come with newer models. Clinics that care about their customers will often invest and reinvest in the latest technology so that they can offer the very best service – even if it is likely to cost their business more. Never be scared to ask about what technology a clinic uses so that you go away and do your own research to find out how it’s rated in the industry.

Do they offer a consultation?

It’s really important for any prospective laser hair removal virgins out there to make sure they have a consultation beforehand. Laser hair removal doesn’t always work for everyone and certain lasers are required for certain skin types. We always recommend a free consultation in advance to make sure you’re suitable, explain what happens and go through cost options. If a clinic doesn’t offer a consultation you should always try to request one, so you are fully confident and informed about expected results, technology, safety and cost. Furthermore, you really shouldn’t be charged for a consultation – most reputable clinics provide these free of charge.

Customer reviews

Above all else, it’s always worth taking a look at what other customers have previously said about the clinic. Search online for laser hair removal reviews on independent platforms such as Google Reviews or Trustpilot and look for whether they have a strong rating, do they have any negative reviews and if so – do they deal with them with a response. Strong laser removal clinics will usually want to rectify any negativity and work hard to resolve a poor customer experience.

As the Christmas period looms just a few weeks ahead, the chances are that many of us will be trying every trick in the book to beautify and perfect our appearance for highly anticipated Christmas parties and events. Whether you want to look your best at the office Christmas doo or want to wow your friends back home, it’s time to think carefully about your skincare regime now so that you’re not caught out.

Here’s a look at some of the potential things that you might be doing wrong in your quest for better looking skin but ultimately may be harming your skincare routine in the long run.

Waxing

For many men and women, waxing is the most obvious way to remove hair quickly and achieve a smooth silky looking skin. However, waxing can lead to a number of issues for your body that can affect your health and comfort. For example, a Brazilian wax to the bikini area could increase the risk of infection. Noted dermatologist – Dr. Krant – has stated that “pulling the hairs out of those areas increases the risk that tiny skin tears will get bacteria in them that was never meant to be inside the skin. It can cause surface infections and even deeper cellulitis in some cases.” It’s one of the reasons why we recommend Laser Hair Removal as a less painful option for getting rid of large areas of hair.

Shaving

For all of us shaving can quickly become a timely and annoying task. The Dermal Institute have estimated that the average man can spend 6 months of his life just shaving his beard such is the inconvenience, so we can’t imagine how much time is spent on everywhere else! Perhaps the cheapest and fastest way to remove unwanted hair, shaving carries with it a number of potential dangers to your skin. For the first part, many shaving products and the razor itself can remove the natural oils and barriers that protect your skin from harmful bacteria. Shaving with a blunt blade or incorrectly can lead to razor bumps or ingrown hairs, which can in turn, become inflamed and even infected, leaving you red-faced and uncomfortable.

Overuse of products

We’ve all been there – a breakout of bad acne and you desperately try to get rid of it by plastering your face with as many products as you can!

Likewise, just as you go out partying over Christmas, you may be wearing make-up more than usual and as such, need to remove it more regularly with make-up wipes. However, using these products can often strip the skin of valuable natural oils that help protect the skin and keep it looking firm, plush and healthy. In some cases, too much usage of a skin product can lead to irritation, block pores and even the odd horrible infection.

Whilst natural oils for your skin are much needed, simply using a “natural” product doesn’t necessarily make it good for you. Leading dermatologist, Dr. Allison Arthur, has commented that “another natural product I see being used a lot is coconut oil. Using that as a moisturizer in areas like the arms and the legs is typically fine, but I don’t recommend using it on the face because it can clog pores and make acne worse”. Mixing too much with other products could also lead to allergic reactions that could do more damage than good.

Scrubbing acne

Likewise, many people may take the obvious approach of constantly washing their face in the hope that it will clear up the acne. In fact, too much showering or scrubbing can remove those natural oils as well! This can leave you with dry and irritated skin that is lacking a protective barrier. Furthermore, if you’re washing too frequently, your body may respond by overproducing oil for the skin later on – which can lead to blocked pores and an overly oily skin.

Your new little bundle of joy has finally arrived. Not only are you sleep deprived, frazzled, and down to your last possible nerve, but you also have yet another problem thanks to that beautiful baby – mummy tummy. Lots of new mums suffer from that frustrating, sagging loose skin filled with stretch marks after the baby arrives. After all, your body had to gain at least fifteen pounds over the course of nine months, and that can be difficult on your skin. What can you do to fight the results? Sure, you could spend hours in the gym doing crunches, but the reality is that wont always help the loose skin. ULTRAcel is one of the best options we have available to help you fight that mummy tummy.

ULTRAcel offers three treatments in one. The first is a high intensity focused ultrasound. That helps to target the SMAS skin layer, then create thermal wounds, which pushes your body to begin a healing process that involves tightening and lifting the skin. Part two is Grid Fractional Radio Frequency, or GFR for short. It applies heat to the dermis and epidermis, which can smooth the collagen and create new collagen. Fractional Radiofrequency Microneedling is part three. It uses microneedling and radiofrequency to help create the collagen production your body really needs now to heal those stretch marks.

Not sure Ultracel will work for you? We also offer a couple of other great choices as well.

Ultraformer HIFU – This is a high intensity focused ultrasound tool that is both simple and non-invasive. The applicator is simply placed on the area you’d like to tighten, then the energy targets the lowest layers of the dermis, which generates heat. That can push the collagen production, which rejuvenates the problem areas. After a single treatment, that mummy tummy will have almost completely disappeared.

Radiofrequency Microneedling – If you’re concerned about the stretch marks you still see, this is perhaps the best way to deal with them. Using a series of tiny needles, the skin is penetrating, which leads to the added collagen your skin needs to repair those stretch marks. The treatment time is quick, which makes it the perfect option if you’re looking to get in and get back to baby sooner.

Surgery doesn’t have to be your only option after the baby arrives. Instead, you can use one of these treatments to help you deal with the saggy, loose skin and stretch marks. Contact us today to learn more.
