A Client’s Experience with Laser Hair Removal

There are many different laser machines when it comes to laser hair removal. My experience has been one which surprised me as I’ve stayed away from laser hair removal due to the fact that I have dark skin and I was sceptical about how painful it could be. My treatment is currently done using the Soprano Titanium laser which can be used on dark / black or Asian skin. Bear in mind not all machines are suitable to use on dark skin.

From my experience the moment I laid on the treatment bed and the gel applied (the gel helps with the gliding of the machine) It took only 200 seconds (roughly 3.30min) to treat each underarm. The pain threshold is what surprised me most. The skin will start to feel warm and almost prickly but because the soprano has a cooling mechanism it makes it very comfortable. This being second treatment, it has been a week since the treatment and haven’t yet needed to shave so I can definitely start to see progress. Coming from someone who thought they couldn’t have laser hair removal due to dark skin, I’m very impressed and can’t wait to continue with the journey.

Amazing results after my First Few Treatments for Laser Tattoo Removal

 The success of laser tattoo removal is dependent on a number of factors, including the location of the tattoo, the density of the ink and also how healthy you are (in order for the body to eliminate the ink after it has been lasered).  As such, two people with exactly the same tattoo will experience different results following laser tattoo removal.

It may not always be the case, but sometimes exceptional results are seen after the first few treatments. However, It does not follow that further treatments will produce the same results. The reason behind this is quite straightforward. The laser will find it easier to target the ink at the surface. Therefore, often although not always the results are very evident within one or two treatments. As the treatment progresses there is less surface ink to break down. In addition, the more resistant ink still remains. Therefore it appears that progress has slowed down. That is not the case. It is just that the ink easier to break down, has broken down.  It is then simply a case of persevering. Best results are seen with PicoSure laser – it uses the most advanced technology for tattoo removal.

The above client experienced exceptional results after laser tattoo removal at our clinic in Burnham, Slough. Just 3 treatments!

Covid-19 Antibody Test available at LaserYou

As of 2 January 2021 we are now offering antibody testing for Covid-19 at our clinic. This is a quick blood test performed on your fingertip.

An antibody test is a blood test to check if you’ve had coronavirus (COVID-19) before. This test is not widely available yet.Information: 

An antibody test is different to the test to check if you have coronavirus now. You can get a test to check if you have coronavirus now on GOV.UK.

What an antibody test can tell you

An antibody test can tell you if it’s likely you’ve had coronavirus before.

But it does not work for everyone, as some people who’ve had the virus do not have antibodies.

An antibody test does not tell you:

  • if you’re immune to coronavirus
  • if you can or cannot spread the virus to other people

Important

If you’ve had coronavirus, you still need to follow the same social distancing advice as everyone else.
