Botox is a purified protein which works by relaxing the tug of muscles on the skin creating a smoother, fresher, younger look. Botox is injected just under the skin into the muscles of the face to cause them to relax. The results are very natural looking and the effect lasts 4-6 months. The three areas typically treated are the frown lines (between the eyes), the forehead and the side of the eyes (crow’s feet). The treatments are painless as the needles are tiny. Side effects from cosmetic use of Botox and allergic-type reactions are extremely rare.
Fillers such as Restylane are made of a naturally occurring substance called hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid hydrates the skin by retaining water and gives the skin its volume. Over time the body loses hyaluronic acid and the skin starts to sag and form wrinkles and folds. Fillers replace the lost hyaluronic acid to restore volume and shape. The fillers are available in syringes (small and large) and are gently injected into areas of the face where they are needed. The results are instantaneous, completely natural and last a year, or longer. A topical anaesthetic (Emla cream) is applied to the area before the treatment (dental block injections are used for the lips) so that the treatments are painless. The client can return to work immediately afterwards. Adverse side effects and allergic-type reactions are extremely rare.
Why Choose IPL Laser Hair Removal?
IPL Laser Hair removal can selectively and precisely destroy unwanted hair whilst leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. Laser hair removal can be used to treat large body areas and settings can be adjusted to suit your specific skin tone and hair colour.
Many men and women have body hair that they do not like and wish to
remove. This can be on any area of the face or body including their legs, back,
bikini line, face, underarms…etc.
We recommend a course of 8 treatments approximately 2 weeks apart to ensure that the best results are achieved.
There are various methods of effectively removing body hair but they come
with the following problems;
Hair Removal (Depilatory) Creams:
Waxing and Threading:
All of the above methods are short-term fixes for what can be distressing and
embarrassing issues. IPL is one of the few ways of destroying hair follicles
permanently leaving you with a smooth, soft complexion. A single course of
IPL hair removal can replace a lifetime of inconvenience and can even work
out cheaper in the long term in comparison to the damaging skin routines
Men and women are spending more than ever before on enhancing their body image and subsequently their self esteem. Don’t get left behind or struggle with a problem that you can easily solve. Many of our clients book their most troublesome area in preparation for a special event such as a wedding or holiday and end up booking more areas as they are so happy with the results!
As summer approaches and more of the body is exposed or looking in the
mirror with the sun light on your face reminds you that you wish you had
booked IPL laser treatment a long time ago, don’t worry we are here to help
Laser Hair Removal for Medical Reasons
Hirsutism is excessive hair growth on a woman due to an imbalance of
androgens (male sex hormones). It is very common for women with PCOS
(polycystic ovary syndrome) to seek IPL hair removal. Many women suffering
with PCOS dislike the excess hair, particularly on the face, neck and chest. IPL
is an excellent way of reducing any unwanted hair. It is also useful in this case
because a light-based treatment does not interfere with most medications.
However, due to the fluctuation of hormones, women with PCOS may require
top-up sessions long-term until the hormone imbalance is resolved.
At ‘Laser Hair Removal London’ (based at Contrasti) we use one of the best
IPL lasers in the world for hair reduction. I am a qualified nurse/midwife in the
U.K and U.S with over 30 year’s experience. I trained as a laser consultant in
Harley Street, London over 10 years ago and I am also qualified in the
administration of Botox and fillers. Donna is a trained phlebotomist in the U.K
and is a certified cosmetologist in the U.S so we are both very experienced in
ensuring that our clients are comfortable and safe. Your personal dignity is
paramount to us.
See you soon!
