5 Reasons to Try Laser Hair Removal at ELAN Medical Skin Clinic

Here at Elan Medical Skin Clinic, we are committed to providing our patients with the most credible, effective aesthetic procedures in the UK. Laser Hair Removal can be an exceptional treatment that can change many client’s daily lives, but as the popularity of the procedure continues to soar; it can be difficult to find a viable and safe practitioner. Many high-street salons and discount websites offer Laser Hair Removal but lack the qualifications and experience necessary to execute the treatment safely to a professional standard.

Elan Medical Skin Clinic stands out from the crowd, as we are a nurse-led medical centre, registered with the Care Quality Commission that you can depend on. Our Medical Director Sue Ibrahim is a nurse consultant in dermatology, and in addition our resident laser practitioner is a fully qualified, registered nurse. So now you’ve found a trustworthy practitioner, what are the reasons to try Laser Hair Removal?

1. Premium Service and Premium Results

As part of our professional and outstanding treatment, we have one of the best and most reliable laser hair removal machines available. We are passionate about making our treatments accessible to all, and Soprano ICE can treat every skin tone, every shade of hair, on any part of the body, including the most intimate areas.

Here’s an example of a typical client’s experience

“Staff are very friendly and helpful. The treatment was thorough and very personalised and well done. Thank you!”

2. It lasts longer than other methods (can be permanent!)

Hair removal lasers have been used by dermatologists since 1997 and approved by the United States FDA as a method for “permanent hair reduction”. Although every person hair growth cycles differentiate based on the person and area of the body; our clients tend to see significant results from Laser Hair Removal in the first few sessions. Elan Medical Skin Clinic’s Laser Hair Removal encourages hair to grow slowly, as well as more fine and fair. It’s crucial to treat hair with Laser Hair Removal in the earliest phase of the hair growth cycle (also known as the anagen stage) to implement permanent results. If clients continue to keep up with appointments every 4-6 weeks at the beginning of their treatment, they can expect an increase in the effectiveness and longevity of the Laser Hair Removal. Clients may be asked to come into the clinic for further appointments dependent on the area being treated, hair coarseness, hormones and general health.

3. Laser Hair Removal is a lot less painful

The sensitiveness of Laser Hair Removal typically range from ‘painless’ to ‘the flicking of an elastic band upon your skin’ dependent on the area you are being treated on. However most agree that Laser Hair Removal is a relatively painless alternative to methods like hot waxing, electrolysis and epilating.

4. Laser Hair Removal is fast

Laser hair removal eliminates hair quite literally at the speed of light. Laser Hair Removal is ideal for targeting large surface areas effectively yet promptly. Laser hair removal sessions can take anywhere from 5 minutes for a facial treatment, to a maximum of 45 mins depending on which part of the body is being treated to a half hour for larger body areas. For example; our underarm treatment can be completed within 15 minutes, with our full Hollywood taking less than an hour. No debris or treatment remnants to wash off post-treatment, clients can focus on their life, without worrying about daily shaving.

5. Laser Hair Removal reduces ingrown hairs

Ingrown hairs are painful, irritating and difficult to heal, especially in sensitive areas. The most common practices that encourage ingrown hairs are shaving and waxing, as these methods tend to break the hair ruggedly. The chance of Elan Medical Skin Clinic clients experiencing this uncomfortable issue is massively reduced with Laser Hair Removal, as the hair follicle is targeted directly. After the hair follicle is killed and damaged, it can no longer support hair growth, eliminating ingrown hairs.

Sugar isn’t just bad for your waistline warns London skin expert

As if it wasn’t looking bad enough for sugar, our London skin expert Sue Ibrahim from Elan Medical Skin Clinics is warning clients about the effects it can have on our skin.

From acne to ageing, wrinkles to blemishes, sugar has a lot to answer for. Sugar and high GI (glycemic index) foods lead to a spike in insulin levels and this causes inflammation throughout our bodies. Sugar also binds to collagen making the skin stiff. The technical term for this is a process called glycation. It’s simple really: less sugar equals better skin – and the results can very often be seen in just a week.

Insulin spikes are linked to acne breakouts and can cause the skin to appear red and inflamed. This is because inflammation produces enzymes that break down collagen and elastin, resulting in sagging skin and wrinkles.
