What to Know Before You Get Laser Hair Removal

Ditching your razor and avoiding annoying stubble days after shaving sounds like a dream. That’s where laser hair removal comes in. But, is it worth the cost? And how do you know if it’s right for you? Is laser hair removal permanent? We’ve got you covered. 

Before you commit to a treatment, it’s best to research any questions you might have. Lots of people love the results laser hair removal brings, but that doesn’t mean it’s for everyone. You have to commit to several sessions for the best results, and let’s face it: it isn’t cheap. There’s no guarantee you’ll be hair-free forever, but at least you won’t have to shave on the daily. 

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is one of the most effective ways to remove unwanted hair from the body and face. When performed, a laser emits a light that works to absorb the melanin (pigment) in the hair. This damages the hair follicle and prevents future growth.1 It is important to have a pre-treatment consultation with a professional to determine what type of wavelength will be used based on the

How to Prepare For Laser Hair Removal

Once you decide on laser hair removal, you’ll will be told to either shave a day or two before your sessions. You’ll also want to avoid tanning and self-tanners before and after treatment. It is possible that you will need to stop taking certain medications to avoid adverse effects, so be honest about everything you take.

On the day of your appointment, avoid using any products on your skin, including lotions, deodorant, or anything else. Be sure to check with your aesthetician about any other things you should and should not do before and after your sessions.

It’s often advised to take a couple of ibuprofen an hour before your session

The pulsed light in laser hair removal feels like a rubber band snapping against your skin, although some machines perform differently. Not every zap will hurt and some areas, like the lower legs, hurt more than others, like your thighs.

What to Expect During a Laser Hair Removal Treatment

The treatment itself typically doesn’t take long. It depends on the area being treated, though. Your back or legs may take an hour or two, while the upper lip may only take minutes.

You’ll see results after your first appointment, but it will take several treatments to permanently remove hair. According to Body Lipo Lincoln, “After each treatment, the hairs may seem to continue to grow for a period of 1-2 weeks, but these hairs are, in fact, lifeless and are simply being cast out by your body. Once these hairs are pushed out, a finer hair grows back in its place. With each treatment, the hairs get finer and sparser. Usually, it takes up to 6 treatments to see no re-growth.” For best results, get maintenance treatments done once a year for at least a couple of years.

Laser  light target several follicles at once (making them great for treating back, shoulder, arm, and chest hair), so you can treat large areas of skin. While it can take years to perform electrolysis on larger areas, a typical laser hair removal session on both legs usually takes less than two hours. Lighter coloured hair on the upper lip and chin can be tricky. Some lasers are able to target light hair without issues, but it can take a few treatments.

After treating an area, hairs fall out within 10 to 14 days. Using a mild sugar scrub in the shower on the tenth day will help exfoliate skin and remove hair. It’s also a good idea to use products your aesthetician may recommend and follow their after-treatment suggestions carefully.

Side Effects

While the side effects are minimal, the most common is skin irritation. Redness and swelling can occur and will typically subside within the first few hours after treatment.  Skin pigment discoloration can also be a concern, which is why it is important to do your research and go to a professional that you trust.

The Final Takeaway

Laser hair removal is not cheap. Depending on what body part you choose to treat, it can run anywhere from £50 to £120 per session.

Many salons advertise discounted procedures, but the best places don’t have to resort to discounts. Do your homework before signing up for services. Protect yourself and your skin by booking an appointment with a highly qualified aesthetics practitioner only.

7 Proven Benefits of Laser Hair Removal in Lincoln

We all have hair on our bodies that we wish we didn’t have. From our legs to our faces to our underarms, we spend hours of our lives shaving, waxing, and removing that unwanted hair.

But there is a better way …

Laser hair removal is one of the most effective ways to remove unwanted body hair. If you’re tired of shaving and waxing but aren’t quite sure if you’re ready for laser treatment, keep reading.

Here are seven proven benefits of laser hair removal:

1. It’s Quick

If it’s a quick solution you’re searching for, laser hair removal is the fastest way to get rid of unwanted hair.

You will have to have multiple treatment sessions, but most sessions only take a few minutes. The smaller the treatment area, the less time you’ll spend under the laser.

2. It’s Less Painful Than Other Hair Removal Methods

Laser hair removal is a lot less painful than most people think. Many people equate it to the feeling of snapping a rubber band against the skin.

Depending on your threshold for pain, you may find it slightly uncomfortable, but the sessions are so fast that most people find it easy to endure.

3. It’s Precise

Laser technology is incredibly precise, making laser hair removal ideal for people looking to target and remove a few specific hairs.

This makes it a great option, even if you’re looking to remove small areas of hair from around the eyebrows, upper lip, nose, bikini line, or hairline.

4. It Can Remove Hair From Any Part of the Body

With the exception of the eyelashes, laser hair removal can be performed on any part of the body.

It’s especially ideal for the back and bikini area, which can be hard to reach with razors and extremely painful to wax.

5. It Prevents Ingrown Hairs

Shaving, waxing, and other methods of hair removal can cause ingrown hairs. If you’re prone to ingrown hairs, laser hair removal is an excellent option.

By destroying the hair at the root, you’ll never have to worry about those pesky hairs growing back in or curling back into the body and becoming ingrown.

6. It Saves You From Having to Endure Regrowth

Some methods, such as waxing and plucking, require that you endure a bit of regrowth in between sessions. With laser hair removal, you can enjoy smooth, hair-free skin at all times.

7. It’s a Long-Term Solution

Most people see permanent, lasting results with laser hair removal. In some cases, you may need a touch-up a few months or years down the line, but it remains one of the best long-term solutions available.

At minimum, you will see a permanent reduction in hair growth that becomes easier to maintain over time.

Because it’s a long-term solution, it’s also cost effective. Over the course of your lifetime, you can save hundreds or even thousands of dollars, as there won’t be a need for monthly waxes or razor blade refills.

LOUIZA, YORKSHIRE

I used to hate going clothes shopping with my friends, because of a bulky pad and not knowing where the toilet would be. The pad used to dictate what clothes I could wear so I could not buy what I wanted. After my course on the chair, I love shopping and can wear anything I choose with confidence, I would recommend the chair to anyone.

MAXINE, LINCOLNSHIRE

I started having water infections and a weak bladder during menopause, I even had bladder prolapse surgery in the year 2000, which helped for a little while but did not last, I saw Body Lipo Lincoln in the Lincs scene for a treatment on bladder dysfunction. I thought this will be my last hope as I did not want surgery again. I am now problem free which is AMAZING. I would recommend the treatment to others with this problem.

What do fat cells do?

Fat has a bad reputation. Many people look to get rid of it and try to reduce levels of it in their diet. However, fat has a critical role to play in our body. This article explores what fat cells are, why we have them and how they work to play an essential role in the body. It also examines if it is possible to get rid of fat cells, and if so, how this can be achieved.

What are fat cells?

Fat cells are scientifically referred to as adipocytes and have developed as specialist cells within the body that make and store fat. As well as being a primary site for energy storage, they are also critical in regulating a number of the body’s internal processes.

There are two types of fat cells or fat (adipose) tissue within the body. Fat cells increase in size as more energy is taken in until they reach a maximum level and may then divide. The white fat cells store and release energy, and the brown fat cells generate body heat.

Why do we have fat?

The human body stores variable amounts of fat, including essential and stored fat. The healthy range for women is 21-36%. Men generally store less body fat, so their healthy range is between 12-25%. The number and size of fat cells in our body increase if excess energy is consumed.

As well as storing fat under the skin, known as subcutaneous fat, excess fat can also be stored on muscles, in the liver and on other organs. The visceral fat stored around the organs is the type that can be harmful and lead to a higher risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease and sometimes cancer.

Despite this risk, fat cells still have critical functions to play within the body, and we need to have a certain amount to keep us healthy. Fat cells store a lot of energy, which was very useful historically when we were much more physically active, and when food was not so readily available. The fat cells would release this energy into the bloodstream, when required, and use it as fuel; critical for survival in challenging environments.

Fat also acts as a layer of protection that helps to insulate the body and safeguard our internal organs from any harm. These cells are also involved in metabolic processes that keep our body functioning correctly.

How do fat cells work?

Our body’s primary source of energy is carbohydrates, which is either used immediately in the form of glucose or accessed from glycogen stores in the liver and muscles. Once the store of carbohydrate is depleted, our body switches to fat for energy. Training the body to burn fat efficiently as a fuel source can promote weight loss.

It is our white fat cells that take care of a lot of our energy homeostasis, storing the excess energy as triglycerides. When triggered by a lipase enzyme, the fat cells release their fatty acids into the bloodstream for use by other organs. The triglycerides are the fuel source that powers many of our body’s internal processes, as well as our external day-to-day activity.

White fat cells and adipose tissue also play a crucial role in regulating lipid metabolism, secreting important molecules that contain hormones, such as leptin, adiponectin, and adipsin. Hormones act as a signalling system within the body, and these secretions by our fat cells help to determine our food intake, insulin sensitivity and insulin secretion.

Brown fat or adipose tissue is vital for heat regulation. The higher levels of mitochondria in brown fat, compared to white, enables it to release its stored energy as heat and protect the body against hypothermia. This process is critically important for newborns and for those residing in colder climates. Studies have shown that people exposed to a cooler environment develop more brown fat and have corresponding changes in their metabolism.

The role of brown fat is not fully understood. However, its potential has led to increased interest in the research community, who are looking to establish whether its calorie-burning properties could be utilised for weight loss.

Can you get rid of fat cells?

When you diet or exercise and your energy expenditure is more than your calorie intake, your body will begin to breakdown fat for energy, and it is this process that leads to weight loss. As the body metabolises the fat, the energy is expended as heat or used for physical or internal activities.

Fat cells are incredibly easily created when a high-fat diet is consumed. Weight is also gained as these fat cells increase in size. However, unfortunately, the reverse is not so simple. Dieting will shrink fat cells, but they do not die and, therefore, it does not get rid of them. Although the fat cells are smaller in size, the fact that they remain is one reason why individuals can regain weight again quickly after going on a diet.

There are some treatments available that get rid of fat cells permanently. Liposuction is one option, but as an invasive procedure, it can lead to complications, and there is no guarantee that results will be successful.

Fat Freezing, also referred to as Cryolipolysis®, is an FDA-cleared procedure that removes fat cells permanently. Its process is non-invasive, and with over eight million procedures performed worldwide*, it has become the leader in this form of fat treatment. 

How does Fat Freezing get rid of fat cells?

Fat Freezing gets rid of fat cells using a localised freezing procedure. As the fat cells freeze, they are destroyed and then removed by the body’s natural processes. Fat Freezing is useful for targeting stubborn areas of fat, and studies have shown that this fat-freezing process results in significant targeted fat reduction.

What can I expect during a Fat Freezing treatment?

One of the frequently asked questions by patients exploring the Fat Freeze procedure is what to expect on the day of the treatment.
The procedure is non-invasive and uses no needles or anaesthetics. This means that, other than mild swelling or redness, most patients are able to get back to their day-to-day life with minimal interruption.

Prior to the treatment day, you will meet with a Body Lipo Lincoln specialist for an initial consultation. This medical professional will go through everything to expect during the process, explore if the Fat Freezing procedure is right for you and, if so, design a customised treatment plan.

On the day of your treatment, an applicator will be placed on the area of fat targeted. A vacuum will then be used to gently pull the tissue into the device and begin to freeze the fat cells by exposing them to very cold temperatures. During the treatment, you may feel a mild tugging sensation as the targeted area is pulled into the device. While the fat cells are freezing, you are likely to experience a localised intensely cold feeling before the area numbs.

What results can be achieved from a Fat Freezing  procedure?

Depending on the size and number of areas targeted, you may require more than one Fat Freeze treatment. Results from the procedure are likely to show within two to eight weeks. Fat Freezing gets rid of fat cells permanently, so by following a healthy lifestyle post-treatment, the results can be maintained.

Fat Freezing the hottest trend!

There has been a lot of buzz lately about fat freezing. Freezing fat, known medically as cryolipolysis, is one of the hottest trends in non-invasive body sculpting — that is, losing pockets of fat without needles, knives, or real downtime.

The basics of Body Fat.

Let’s start with the basics. Not all fat is created equal. We have two distinct types of fat in our bodies: subcutaneous fat (the kind that may roll over the waistband of your pants) and visceral a fat (the stuff that lines your organs and is associated with diabetes and heart disease.

From here on out, when we refer to fat, we are talking about subcutaneous fat, as this is the type of fat that cryolipolysis targets. A recent study showed that the body’s ability to remove subcutaneous fat decreases with age, which means we are fighting an uphill battle.

Cryolipolysis — which literally translates into cold (cryo) fat (lipo) destruction (lysis) — was invented, in part, by observing what can happen when kids eat ice lollies. No kidding here. The cofounders of this process were intrigued by something called “cold-induced fat necrosis” that was reported to occur after young children ate ice lollies that were inadvertently left resting on the cheek for several minutes. Skin samples taken from the patients, these showed inflammation in the fat, but normal overlying skin. Thus, it appeared that fat may be more sensitive to cold injury that other tissue type

Using this concept, a cooling device was tested on pigs in 2007 to see if fat cells could be selectively destroyed. The results were promising and predictable; there was about a 15mm reduction in the pig’s fat layer, without damaging the overlying skin, in the treated areas. By 2010, the first cryolipolysis technology approved for human use, the treatment was cleared for love handles. Clearance for treating other parts of the body, including the thighs, belly, bra fat, back, underside of the buttocks, and chin soon followed.

How does cryolipolysis work?

No one knows for sure, but we think that a few days after treatment, the cooled fat cells die. Over the next several months, macrophages, part of the immune system’s clean-up crew, digest the dead fat cells.

A cool procedure

To date, there have been more than eight million fat freezing treatments performed worldwide. Unlike liposuction, which can require anaesthesia and comes with risks of bleeding or serious infection, Fat Freezing is a relatively safe in-office procedure, with minimal pain and no downtime.

The treatment itself takes 30 to 60 minutes per application, and multiple applications may be needed to cover an area.

The most common side effects of treatment include redness, bruising, swelling, tingling, numbness, or darkening of the treated area. Most of these side effects, if present, will resolve within several hours after treatment.

Results can be seen as soon as two weeks, with maximum benefit seen at approximately three months. Average reduction in fat ranges from about 10% to 40% per round of treatment, and there is no evidence of any body-wide side effects. A second round of treatment may be needed after several months, depending on the desired results.

Who’s a good candidate for fat freezing?

Cryolipolysis appears to be a safe and effective treatment for fat loss without the downtime of liposuction or surgery. But it is important to note that cryolipolysis is intended for fat loss, not weight loss. The ideal candidate has stubborn, pinchable areas of fat that are difficult to get rid of with diet and exercise. Cryolipolysis also doesn’t target visceral fat, so it won’t improve your overall health. But it may help you fit into your favourite pair of skinny jeans.

Choosing the right clinic?

Multi Award Winning Body Lipo Lincoln is a medical lead clinic using only the best in Cryolipolysis technology,  we believe only highly trained medical professions should preform aesthetic treatments, when choosing your clinic ask to see qualifications of practitioner and before and after pictures of their work (NOT STOCK PHOTOS).  Every reputable clinic should be proud to show you their work and credentials.

DID YOU KNOW 2 in 3 WOMEN OVER 35 EXPERIENCE UNEXPECTED PEEING?

Women are pretty amazing at talking and sharing life experiences when we need to debrief or feel understood. 

Isn’t it funny though, that while we might be happy to share details about sore nipples, or the colour of baby’s poop with strangers at our new mother’s group, there are some details we skip over

Over 70% of women experience this unexpected peeing as a result of pregnancy, childbirth, menopause and natural ageing.

Yep – that’s a lot of us. Two in 3 women over 35 years post childbirth actually pee a little bit when we run, laugh, bend, lift, sneeze or jump. Yet hardly anyone talks about it.

We don’t need to put up with wet, uncomfortable undies, or stop doing the things we want to do (like jumping on the trampoline with our kids, running for the bus, or simply having a good laugh.

For most women, it starts with a surprise pee that in most cases can be resolved with a quick change of undies and a pad and left untreated this condition only gets worse with time, but it does not have to be this way Bladder dysfunction is common but not normal.  At Body Lipo Lincoln we know how you feel and have the solution to bladder leakage with the new EMSella chair designed to strengthen the pelvic floor support the bladder and stop bladder leakage. We were one of the first in the UK to introduce the chair and have since treated 100’s for ladies with amazing results.  For more information click the link below.

MY PERSONAL STRUGGLE WITH ROSACEA: LOUISE’S TOP TIPS AT MANAGING ROSACEA.

If extensive and prolonged blushing cheeks and redness across the mid face is causing
you some concern or maybe your skin is becoming irritated when trying to introduce
a more grown up skincare routine and you are noticing that you are developing
blemishes that are certainly different to the usual T-Zone or hormonal breakout then
chances are you have Rosacea.

April is Rosacea awareness month and I thought I would look at this condition that
both myself any so many of clients I see in my clinic suffer with and discuss how to
help improve this irritating and debilitation condition. With the weather changing I
know I will see an increase in Rosacea clients on my clinic couch and my aim in this
blog is to help you take control over it and prevent it becoming worse.

My skin started to change in my 30’s, I would develop a flushed redness across my
cheeks as soon as I took my first sip of red wine, similarly spicy food would instigate a
prolonged flush and introducing skincare that carried a low pH such as Vitamin C

became more and more difficult. As I aged even sunscreen became a problem for my
tingling, flushed cheeks.

If you’re reading this and can relate to these symptoms and causes then the good news
is I can help you navigate your way round, what often feels confusing, skincare
routine.

Different Types Of Rosacea.

More often than not this common condition affects those aged between 30-60. This
group affected with Rosacea is commonly those with lighter skin tones but thats not to
say darker skin tones can’t suffer with Rosacea – they absolutely can, it’s just the
melanin (colour) in the skin often masks the redness and this leads to a difficulty in
diagnosis.

There are 4 main sub-types of Rosacea.

Type 1 – Erythematotelangiectatic Rosace – a mouthful to say but this type of early
Rosacea is characterised by a long lasting flush across the cheeks. The redness that
can be seen is down to dilated capillaries (telangiectasia)

Type 2 – Papulopustular Rosace – This is probably the most common type as there
seems to be an overlap with acne because as well as the redness and flushing you will
see papules (red spots) and pustules (white head spots) often seen across the cheeks,
nose and chin.

Type 3 – Phymatous Rosace – Men tend to suffer with this type of Rosacea and there
is a clear thickening across where the redness sits. If you have ever seen a thickened
nose with a bright red zone then (rhinophyma) then this is classic type 3 Rosacea.

Type 4 – Ocular Rosacea – Sore, red eyes, often blood shot and the skin around the
eyes can also feel gritty.

When I’m in a skin consultation more often than not is someone has Rosacea there is
often an overlap of all these subtypes, but regardless of what category you fall in there
is always have sensitive, irritated skin that stings when it doest like a product and this
is down to the disrupted barrier function.

Know Your Tiggers

To understand your skin and understand what triggers the ‘flare up’ will mean you
are forearmed. Cold weather, Summer days, central heating, air conditioning,
holidays abroad and skiing all have the potential to make matters worse. Because
these conditions pinch the moisture from your skin and if you have a poor barrier
function this is not ideal. Remember, if your skin is inflamed whether thats from skin
sensitivity, Rosacea or acne then your skin won’t keep the moisture in so its essential to
deal with the inflammation.

Food, if consuming alcohol and eating spicy foods cause a flush then it’s triggering a
histamine response and my advise is to go easy on these. Even coffee and hot drinks
can be a skin problem for some Rosacea sufferers.

If like me you enjoy a hot bath or a bit of hot yoga then I’m sorry to tell you this
pastime is not ideal for Rosacea skins. If you enjoy a spa day skip the sauna and relax
in the quiet room!

Skincare for Rosacea.

Keep it gently and uncomplicated. Don’t use fragrance in any of your product choices
and treat your skin like baby skin, soft movements when cleansing, definitely don’t
cleanse your face in a hot shower. If you’ve seen my video on sensitive skin then I
advocate a gentle non foaming cleanser and I’m not a huge fan of a double cleanse
because we don’t want to disrupt the skin. Avoid beauty toners they have no place in a
rosacea skin – or any skin for that matter. No essential oils and avoid chemical SPF’s
opt for a mineral one.

How to repair a disrupted skin barrier

Stop harsh cleansing and stop strong active skincare. Go back to basics. Choose a
moisturiser that has barrier boosting ingredients in it such as niacinamide and
ceramides.

Acids for Rosacea.

Stay clear of AHA;s and BHA’s and even if you have spots with your rosacea these will
be completely different than an acne blemish – the issue isn’t in the pore – so don’t fall
into the trap of reaching for the Salicylic Acid. Opt instead for an Azelaic Acid with
percentages between 5%-20%

Louise’s Final Note On Rosacea.

This is such a challenging condition to manage and can be really tricky navigating
your way through the skincare ingredients – get this bit wrong and its hard to get a
handle on the condition. If your skin is serenely inflamed then you may need to see
your GP for a prescription product, but having a long term strategy in place is

essential and once the Rosacea is managed then we can move on to tackle concerns
like anti ageing,
