Are You Ready For Summer?

summer ready manchesterThe time for holidays and hitting the beach is officially here. Are you ready for summer? If you’re not, there’s no need to stress – fortunately, we have a range of treatments that can get you summer-ready. From banishing excess hair, combating stubborn pockets of fat and getting your skin primed and ready, we have the solution for you.

Laser Hair Removal

Waxing and shaving can be a chore at any time of year – but even more so in summer. Laser hair removal is a convenient alternative. Resulting in a permanent hair reduction, the average patient requires 6-8 sessions, at around 6 weeks apart. Laser hair removal can drastically reduce the amount of shaving and waxing you need to do – in fact, you might never shave or wax again!

Furthermore, it’s more cost effective than you might expect. Did you know the average woman spends £30,000 on waxing and shaving in a lifetime? In comparison to laser hair removal, waxing and shaving is staggeringly expensive. You can find our laser hair removal pricing here, and see how much you could potentially save.

At Skin Medical we use the Lightsheer Diode system which is FDA-Approved and considered to be the gold-standard in laser hair removal. It’s cool tip enabled, which makes the treatment more comfortable for you. If you’re wanting to know more about laser hair removal and how it works, we answer all of your questions here.

Vaser Liposuction

Vaser liposuction is an effective fat removal procedure performed under a local anaesthetic, which targets stubborn pockets of fat that dieting and exercise have failed to shift. In summer, these stubborn pockets of fat can be more distressing than ever. Performed under a local anaesthetic and with quick recovery times, there are a lot of advantages to choosing Vaser liposuction over traditional liposuction.

Vaser liposuction uses advanced ultrasound technology to break down fat cells, meaning they can easily be removed using suction. The technology targets only the fat cells, meaning all other tissue (such as nerves and blood vessels) is left unharmed. It can also stimulate collagen, meaning it can have a tightening effect on the skin too!

More areas than you might expect can be treated using Vaser liposuction, including the abdomen, love handles, outer and inner thighs, buttocks, knees, upper arms, calves and the male chest area. We can also treat the neck, jowls and chin.

The procedure is performed at our Manchester clinic by an experienced female surgeon.

SPF 50

The most important part of any skincare routine is your SPF – and when you’re exposed to the sun, the higher the SPF the better. At Skin Medical we recommend Heliocare SPF50+, which is available as a cream, gel and a mineral formulation.

Heliocare is a high-protection, effective SPF that is suitable for all skin types. It’s even suitable for those who suffer from acne and it doesn’t trigger further breakouts, like some skincare can. Our medical nurse practitioners will be able to assess your skin and advise which Heliocare product is most suitable for you.
