The seven deadly signs of ageing

We think there are too many things that can make you appear older than you really are, so we put together a list of the seven most wicked signs of ageing; and how to fight back against them!

1. Un-even skin tone

Causes:
With age pigment builds up in the layers of the skin, leaving the skin with a patchy and un-even appearance. This usually results from insufficient sun screen during early life but can have other causes such as fluctuating hormone levels.
Un-even skin tone is one of the biggest factors which will make someone look a lot older than they really are, regardless of wrinkles. This has in fact been proven in two scientific studies.

Why you should wear sun screen every day

The effect of the Sun’s rays is something that people in the UK are underestimating, at their peril!

Because the bad effects take a long time to materialise it is hard to see a direct relationship between sun exposure and bad skin. Much like seeing the link between smoking or drinking too much and chronic disease.

Most of the damage caused by UV exposure happens before we are 20 and the full extent of the damage can take up to 30 years to become evident. This is why it is vitally important to protect your children’s skin from the sun, and your own.

Types of Lasers

There are three main types of lasers used for hair removal; IPL, diode and ND:YAG. As we found that IPL and Diode laser were less effective for laser hair removal we opted to use the ND:YAG medical-grade laser, which provides the best and longest lasting results we've seen.

It is interesting to note that IPL is not actually a laser. This means it cannot penetrate as far into the skin (dermis) ultimately resulting in less reliable results.

ND:YAG can penetrate right down into the root of a hair follicle, meaning the results are better and longer lasting.

We offer laser hair removal for men and women and can treat any part of your body. For more information about what to expect during your treatment visit our main laser hair removal page or give us a call on 020 8571 1232

Skin types

The Fitzpatrick scale is used to assess skin types. Not all lasers can treat all skin types.TYPE I: Very pale and prone to burning, never tans.

TYPE II: Pale, very sensitive to sun and often burns, hard to tan.
TYPE III: Olive, sensitive to sun and sometimes burns, tans slowly to light brown colour.
TYPE IV: Light brown, not particularly sensitive to sun but rarely burns, tans to moderate brown.
TYPE V: Brown, not sensitive to sun and rarely burns, tans well.
TYPE VI: Dark to intense brown, insensitive to sun and never burns, deeply pigmented.

ND:YAG is the only laser which can treat all skin types effectively.
