Over time, our skin faces many changes The condition of the skin and the concerns we have differ greatly depending on our age, as many internal and external factors play a major role in the overall health of the skin.

Treating the skin with these changes in mind, will give you the most in depth approach to facial care as it not only incorporates treating what is visible on the epidermis but also gives us an understanding of the processes within the body at a particular age.

With the Tailored Signature Facial, your skin is assessed with the consideration of your age, skin type and conditions to create a customised treatment especially designed just for you.

Teens During the teenage years the hormonal activity rises and the body faces many changes. Oil production in the skin during this stage is dramatically increased and balancing the sebum that is produced becomes a major focus. Acne is a common condition that affects teenagers for this reason, as well as clearing blackheads, congestion and pustules.

To take care of teenage skin Exclusively Beauty has developed the Teen Deep Cleansing Facial, to clear the build-up of acne causing bacteria, extract comedones while balancing and calming the skin.

Establishing a regular skincare routine during the teenage years is important, as this puts good habits in place for years to come. Sun Protection should always be a priority, especially during outdoor activity. The most common skin problems are: Overproduction of sebum and acne.

Twenties In your twenties, it is important to adjust your routine to incorporate protection and prevention of aging later in life. Keeping the skin hydrated and the pores clean are two of the most important steps to preventing premature aging later in life, while infusing antioxidant rich Vitamin C protects the cells from free radical damage and provides cellular health.

If you have oily skin or acne, clearing the skin and balancing sebum production is important. Extraction of blackheads and skin congestion are recommended the clear pores and allow the absorption of hydrating ingredients. The use of overly aggressive acne products should be avoided as at this age as they can strip and over-sensitise the skin, possibly leading to the development of pigmentation. The most common skin problems are: Dehydration and Pigmentation

Thirties During the thirties, collagen and elastin fibres begin to break down and the skin’s renewal process begins to gradually slow. Protecting and nourishing the skin prevents premature aging, while sun protection and the prevention of pigmentation becomes a focus.

The Tailored Signature Facial in this instance is adjusted to include antioxidant ingredients, which deliver skin repairing benefits and prevent excess melanin production. The first appearance of fine lines, usually occur during the thirties, commonly the first place being around the eye contour. As the skin can start to become dryer a nourishing ingredients are incorporated to soothe and calm the skin. The most common skin problems are: Dehydration, pigmentation and the first appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Forties During the forties environmental aggressors often begin to take their toll on the skin, which is why pigmentation and an uneven complexion are common skin conditions for people of this age. The skin becomes dryer and with the loss of collagen and skin volume starts to visibly affect the skin. Lines and wrinkles at this stage can appear deeper.

To keep the skin looking youthful and healthy, the cells need to be repaired with powerful antioxidant ingredients such as Vegetable DNA and Hyaluronic Acid. These ingredients not only hydrate and moisturise but also boost collagen production, repair micro-damage caused by external and internal factors, while being suitable for the most sensitive of skin. The Tailored Signature Facial is customised to the condition of the skin to boost skin repair, deliver moisture and hydration.

The onset of the pre-menopausal stages start to affect the skin and premature menopause can also be an issue. The skin can become dryer on the face and body which may cause discomfort. As a result deeper hydration, moisture and nourishment is needed. The most common skin problems are: Premature aging, dryness and premature menopausal effects.

Fifties During the fifties, the effects of menopause start to become more apparent. The lowered levels of oestrogen lead to a lack of moisture and hydration, leaving the skin extremely dry.  Hot flushes brings along inflammation, sensitivity and discomfort. A loss of firmness begins to appear due to the breakdown of collagen and elastin fibres, making the skin appear lax and facial contours lose their definition.

The skin needs to be taken care of very carefully due to these reasons, with potent active ingredients in a light non-irritating texture. The Tailored Signature Facial is customised to deeply nourish, moisturise and induce collagen synthesis to promote skin firmness, improve texture and soothe irritation. The eye area can also become dry, develops deeper wrinkles and the area needs to be treated with ingredients that mimic the effect of oestrogen on the skin, such as phospholipids from soya lecithin to deeply soften and nourish the delicate eye contour.

Opt for a steam free treatment when affected by hot flushes to avoid overheating and discomfort. Alternatively try the Intraceuticals Oxygen Facial, for a hydration boosting treatment which lifts the skin while cooling and calming redness. The most common skin problems are: Lines, wrinkles, hot flushes and dryness for the face and body.

Sixties and above During the 60’s and onward, the connective tissue that stabilises the skin and muscles, attaching them to the bones called fascia, begins to deteriorate causing loss of firmness and sagging in the skin. Firming and collagen synthesis are a must during skin treatment as well as during daily at home care, to effectively tighten visible laxity.

Cellular turnover is now significantly slowed and as a result the skin can appear dull. Wrinkles at this stage are deeper and often develop around the mouth. As the hormone levels now begin to normalise, skin sensitivity and redness can decline. This allows skin treatments to become more active. The most common skin problems are: Loss of firmness and laxity.

The Tailored Signature Facial assists skin desquamation, bringing fresh cells to the surface and stimulates circulation for a vibrant complexion.

For a deeply active Skin Tightening treatment using state of the art technology, Radio Frequency Skin Tightening with Microdermabrasion visibly tightens the skin, minimising skin laxity and depth of lines and wrinkles. Microdermabrasion improves cellular turnover and evens the skin tone. With regular monthly visits, Radio Frequency Skin Tightening with Microdermabrasion stimulates collagen fibres to be produced, resulting in improved skin volume.

With Exclusively Beauty’s Tailored Signature Facial your skin comes first with a customised treatment to make your skin glow and deliver amazing results.

Electrolysis Hair Removal Sydney: Treatment

Electrolysis uses a small needle called a filament, which is inserted directly into the hair follicle and passes an electrical current directly into the hair root. Once the individual hair is treated, it is removed by tweezers. Electrolysis in Sydney is easy to find, but very hard to find a reputable beauty clinic that offers it.

The number of sessions of Electrolysis in Sydney depends on several factors including the condition of the hair, hormonal dysfunction or medical conditions. From our experience, to see the results it may take more than 10 sessions, and treatments may need to go on for several months.

skin renewal program

The key feature of the Skin Renewal Program is the use of Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), including glycolic, lactic, mandelic and citric acids, which are the mildest of the peel formulas, to produce a light and even peel on the skin.

It works by penetrating the skin and loosening the ‘glue’ that binds dead cells together, resulting in a deep exfoliation which leads to softer, smoother skin and a brighter complexion.

When you have Broken Capillaries on the face it is often difficult to know what to do or even where to start! It is a condition that affects many people, but it is also not often addressed.

What are broken capillaries?

Small blood vessels in the skin which carry blood throughout the body, start to weaken and over time develop small gaps in the capillaries and become damaged, giving them the appearance of small red veins visible on the surface of the skin.

What causes broken capillaries?

What often causes broken capillaries is the weakening of the blood vessels, overheating and an impaired skin barrier. Many women start to experience broken capillaries as the reach menopause, as the skin’s natural barrier function starts to deteriorate, dehydration and dryness increase and the processes of collagen, elastin and the connective tissues slowly break down.

One common thing which can further aggravate broken capillaries is the topical application of ice to the skin. While the cold temperature can feel soothing to the overheated skin, what you can’t see is that it is silently causing further damage to the skin.  When ice is applied to the face, the body wants to regulate the temperature and reacts by increasing the body’s temperature internally, in turn making the capillaries more red and inflamed.

 

What can I do to minimise broken capillaries?

With the advancement of technology and extensive research, there are now methods of not only minimising the appearance of broken capillaries, but also preventing them in the future.

 

IPL Vein removal

Also known as Intense Pulsed Light, IPL is a light based laser treatment which uses a particular wavelength to directly target the haemoglobin (the part that gives red blood cells their colour) in the broken capillaries, resulting in the reduction of broken capillaries and flushing skin. With a series of treatments, the skin improves from the inside out as the redness is destroyed.

 

Elixir

During the treatment of existing broken capillaries, it is also important to repair the condition of the skin which causes them in the first place. Inflamed skin, menopause and sensitivity can all onset damage to the blood vessels and Exel’s Elixir is formulated to treat these conditions, prevents future broken capillaries and diminishes existing ones.

Exel Elixir is the one of a kind serum cream formulated to repair aging skin on the cellular level.

Exel’s cosmetic labs developed the revolutionary molecule Lipmalbex which is highly concentrated in antioxidants, proven effective to delay the signs of aging and suitable for the most sensitive of skin.

Lightweight and easily absorbed, Elixir contains thousands of antiaging molecules of Lipmalbex: A new complex exclusive to Exel is the synergistic combination of the four liposomes: Resveratrol, Vitamins C, E and Troxerutin.  The unique combination of pure ingredients, in a low molecular weight delivery system deeply penetrates the skin, dispersing the actives directly to the target skin cells to which gives brightness, vigour and a rejuvenated skin appearance.

Elixir is beneficial to many concerns associated with aging including skin hypersensitivity, broken capillaries, menopause, lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness, dehydration and the slowdown of cellular renewal. Due to its low molecular weight, not only can Elixir be used on the face and neck, but also all around the eye contour.

The Power Ingredient which treats and prevents broken capillaries is Troxerutin.

Troxerutin is a flavonoid which is effective in strengthening and repairing blood vessels, while improving and normalising their permeability. It is a natural, plant derived ingredient which is extracted from the Japanese Pagoda tree.

Troxerutin helps to activate circulation, improving the supply of oxygen and nutrients to skin cells.

 

What steps can I take to prevent further broken capillaries?

Small adjustments to your lifestyle can prevent the conditions that lead to broken capillaries. Here is a list of what you can do on a daily basis to help your skin.

Avoid extreme temperatures on your face: Drastic changes in temperature on the face affect blood circulation and can make the skin erupt in redness. Hot showers commonly cause flare ups, as do ice cubes. Even though ice cubes feel cold on the skin, they make your body react internally by stabilising the temperature, dilating blood vessels, increasing heat in the tissue and your chances of having broken capillaries.

Avoid strong acid peels on the face: Acid peels have a lot of skin benefits, however they are not suitable for everyone. When you are prone to broken capillaries, acid peels can irritate and make your skin sensitive to heat.

Avoid heavy makeup: While you may feel tempted to wear heavy makeup to hide broken capillaries, it actually creates the conditions for broken capillaries to occur. When the skin is blocked with makeup, it is unable to breathe and function correctly. Heavy makeup also retains heat in the skin.

Avoid thick and heavy skincare products : Much like heavy makeup, heavy skin creams can block the skin and retain heat. When creams are very thick or contain a lot of oils and petrolatum derived ingredients, the skin becomes overheated and cannot release the heat. A light textured formula, with high quality active and carrier ingredients is necessary.

Avoid hot or spicy food: When eating, make sure to allow the food cool to a reasonable temperate as this also increases the body’s heat. Have you ever noticed your face flushing after eating hot food? This can be risky if you are prone to broken capillaries. Spicy food has a similar effect, and should be avoided when possible as well.

 

Skincare Routine:

Cleansing: Cleansing is a very important step to allow your skin to function properly. If you are prone to broken capillaries you need a gentle cleanser that doesn’t strip your skin, but helps it repair itself. Foaming cleansers are best avoided for this skin type as they strip your natural oils, then you need to replace the moisture you lost afterwards.

Exel Cleansing Lotion with Vitamin E, doesn’t strip the skin of its natural oils and doesn’t affect the skin’s barrier. It gently removes impurities and makeup and is safe around eyes.

Preperation: Have you ever had your skin drink up moisturiser very quickly, leaving you feeling parched shortly after. The skin needs solids and liquids, just like when we eat and drink. The skin needs to be properly hydrated to be able to absorb creams and serums into the deepest layers of the skin, rather than drinking up all the moisture at the surface. This is why we need toning lotions. Not only do they balance the skin’s ph after cleansing, but also hydrate the skin’s surface to prepare and allow for the penetration of serums and creams into the skin.

Exel Herbal Purifying and Toning Lotion, with witch hazel contracts blood vessels makes skin comfortable and reduces heat and prevents product loss by over application.

 

Treatment: Apply Exel Elixir over the face and neck with a pressing motion to push the serum cream into the skin without friction, which causes overheating. This formula is designed to be used as a one step serum and moisturiser.

 

Protection: During the daytime finish with your selection of Exel Sun Protection Cream or BB cream.

With a natural tinted coverage, non-oily breathable texture and antioxidant skin care properties, you won’t feel sticky, nor will you need to worry about applying foundation.

The sun can overheat and burn the skin, so make sure to protect your skin.

 

Treating and preventing broken capillaries is now easily achieved with professional advice on skincare.

Did you know the skin is your body’s largest organ?

Keeping your skin in great condition is all about having a healthy routine. What you do day to day is a big part of keeping to skin clean, healthy and glowing.

Cleanse

A gentle daily cleanser removes impurities without stripping your natural protection. Cleansers not only remove makeup, oils and impurities from the environment, but also opens the skin’s channels. Cleansing is necessary in order to allow your serums and creams to sink into the skin.

Gently massaging your cleanser into the skin, then rinsing it off with lukewarm water is the best way to prepare your skin for the following steps.

Tip: Double cleanse the skin at night time by rinsing and repeating. The first cleanse is to remove makeup and impurities, the second cleanse is for your pores.

Exfoliate

As we age our cell turnover rate slows down. Exfoliating helps the body’s natural turnover process, removing old cells to allow fresh new ones to form. It is also is a very important step for product absorption. Removing dead skin which blocks the surface allows active ingredients to penetrate the skin and deliver vital ingredients to the deeper layers of the skin, where new skin cells feed on supplied nutrients.

Tip: Want a deeper clean? Try exfoliating after patting your skin dry. It allows the particles of the scrub to have full contact with your skin for smooth results. Exfoliating 2 times a week is ideal.

Tone

Applying a toner is a very important step for hydration and absorption. Toners open the skin’s channels and allow creams and serums to sink into the skin, rather than just sitting on top. They improve the skin’s elasticity and hydration levels, meaning your skin bounces back more quickly.

Did you know toners rebalance the skin’s ph back to its natural state?

Serum

Are you concerned about aging, pigmentation, dehydration, sensitivity or damaged capillaries?

Serums are the vitamins and nutrients to keep the skin healthy from the inside out. They penetrate deeper than creams to protect and repair cells and are the key to keeping the skin youthful.

Whether you are concerned about dehydration, pigmentation, sensitivity or other skin conditions, there is a serum just for you.

Moisturise

Moisturisers are the final skin care step. Moisturisers nourish the skin with moisture to keep the outer layers supple and protected from the elements. This step also helps to retain your natural hydration levels and prevents trans epidermal water loss, the dehydration of the skin.

Apply cream as the last step to lock in moisture and keep your skin supple all day.

Follow with sun protection for daytime to block out harmful UV rays.

Keeping a good skincare routine, along with regular treatments and a healthy diet with plenty of water is the best way to maintain and improve skin health, inside and out.

Cooling Wraps

Want to tighten, firm and contour your body?

Don’t have the time for lengthy clinic treatments? Don’t know what to do to get results?

Cooling Wraps are your answer!

It only takes 15 minutes to come in and have it applied and then you continue your day, wearing the wrap for at least 6 hours.

What are Cooling Wraps?

Cooling wraps are a salon only, results driven beauty treatment for body contouring. It improves the appearance of cellulite, stretchmarks and spider veins while visibly tightening the skin, breaking down stubborn fatty deposits and eliminating fluid retention. It’s an all in one highly active body treatment delivering real results!

 

The easy 15 minute treatment is not only quick and simple to wear, but is invisible under most clothing too. Cooling wraps are formulated using a blend or natural herbal ingredients to stimulate collagen synthesis for skin firming while forcing the body to use stored fat as energy with its unique cooling action.

 

During the treatment the Exel’s unique cryogenic formula is applied to either the abdomen, legs, arms or a combination or 2 areas and then covered tightly with a comfortable plastic film. The wrap can be safely left overnight for over 6 hours for even better results by allowing an even longer time to absorb the active gel.

How do wraps work?

The highly concentrated active ingredients, once applied, rapidly cool the skin to create an environment to induce the body to react by warming itself to regulate the body temperature. This forces stored fat to be metabolised as energy. The treatment also highly stimulates the production of collagen to minimise stretch marks, loss of firmness and sagging skin.

While wearing the wrap the skin’s channels absorb the active ingredients, improving blood circulation, lymphatic circulation, while minimising water retention and swelling.

What are the active ingredients?

Centella Asiatica Extract: A powerful herb used in traditional Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine for its antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Centella Asiatica being rich in antioxidants targets free radicals in the skin and encourages the growth of fibroblasts, the cells responsible for collagen synthesis. The collagen boosting and anti-inflammatory properties effectively diminish the appearance of stretch marks, tighten and firm the skin and increases elasticity. Centella Asiatica also improves the appearance of cellulite and loose skin, which increases elasticity for a firmer, smoother body while minimising the dimply and lumpy appearance on thighs, buttocks and upper arms. Lymphatic and blood circulation is also stimulated, repairing damage to veins allowing improvement to spider veins and relief for tired legs and feet.

 

Menthol: Menthol has a natural analgesic attribute and when applied topically it relieves pain, muscle tension and itchiness. It increases blood flow and dilates blood vessels allowing the actives to penetrate deeper into the skin.

Camphor: It is found in the wood of the camphor laurel tree. Applied topically it relieves muscular pain and itches. It increases local blood flow and acts as a counterirritant, which reduces pain and swelling causing irritation.

Citric Acid: This acid induces cellular turnover, improves skin texture and the release of toxins. Citric Acid is particularly useful for treating cellulite.

Exel Cryogenic Therapy Line can be alone or combined with other professional body contouring treatments for the visible improvement of cellulite, sagging skin, stretch marks, fatty deposits and fluid retention, while increasing skin elasticity, tone and hydration.

Do you suffer from tired, aching or swollen legs and feet? Do you have poor blood circulation, cramps, spider veins or varicose veins?

Our legs and feet support our whole body every day. With our modern lifestyles, whether it is sedentary, having continued hours of standing as well as stress or lack of exercise, our legs can suffer from insufficient blood circulation, water retention, swelling, fatigue and pain. For the relief of these symptoms Exclusively Beauty has introduced the Tired Legs and Feet Treatment.

Many factors can affect our legs and can cause the accumulation of tension, leading to pain and discomfort. These may include:

Lifestyle factors: The modern daily lifestyle, including working conditions can lead to lower-body soreness. These factors can include having to stand for long hours or sitting for extended periods of time, causing stiffness and a lack of blood circulation. Lack of exercise can also affect the circulation in the legs.

Clothing: Sometimes clothing and footwear can be either too tight, uncomfortable or minimises the functionality of our return circulation. These include:

Trousers or skirts that may be too tight around the waist, hips and legs. High heeled shoes which cause tension in the ankles and feet while making the return circulation not function correctly. Socks that have a tight elastic or cut off the circulation in the lower leg

Weight Management:  Obesity and being overweight may increase the risk of developing painful leg conditions. This can be caused by blockages in the lymph nodes resulting in swollen legs and feet.

Pregnancy: Swelling and pain in the lower body can often occur during pregnancy due to the possible increase in water retention.  In addition, pregnancy can put extra pressure on the pelvic veins, which slows the return of blood from the legs towards the heart causing it to pool and swell.

Are these symptoms causing you discomfort or affecting your lifestyle?

When our legs and feet build up pressure and fatigue during the day, the resulting aches and pains can get in the way of our lifestyle. It can prevent us from having enough exercise and physical activity to keep us healthy.

Do you have trouble relaxing and winding down at the end of the day? When going to an event or an evening out, do you often dread the thought of wearing high heels, especially after a day at work?

Improving circulation through regular massage is beneficial to the decompression of the lower legs, giving you relief and returning a spring to your step.

Relieving pain and tension is possible with this specialised treatment, which will help your legs recover and feel more comfortable.

Using the newest exclusive formulas from Exel Body Lab, this state-of-the-art program relieves and relaxes discomfort in the feet, ankles, calves and thighs using powerful active ingredients to strengthen blood vessels, improve circulatory function, while reducing water retention and swelling.

Exel Active Lotion which has an intense cooling sensation is sprayed onto the lower legs to deliver antioxidants and normalise the blood vessels’ permeability with all natural components including Troxerutin, horse chestnut, ginko biloba, witch hazel and camphor. Lymphatic Drainage massage is performed with the lotion to stimulate blood circulation as well as the lymphatic system, the secondary system of circulation in the body. This stimulates and directs blood towards the heart, as return circulation often needs assistance to work correctly, resulting in clearing toxins from the body and promoting healing. Reflexology Foot massage techniques are used to soothe sore feet, which is proven to relieve stress, increase energy levels while improving blood circulation, immunity and nerve function. Reflexology benefits not only the body, but the mind and general wellbeing.

After treatment, it is always recommended to maintain the result by applying Exel Relaxing Gel Cream For Tired Legs and Feet. With a pleasant texture, this Gel Cream delivers the same powerful ingredients (troxerutin, horse chestnut, ginko biloba, witch hazel and camphor) used in treatments for daily relief at home, while also moisturising and softening the skin.  It alleviates heaviness in the legs while offering a cooling sensation and an immediate feeling of relaxation. It is ideal for soothing tension caused by aching muscles. With continued use the gel cream also diminishes the unattractive appearance of varicose veins, spider veins and minimises swelling.

With the Tired Legs and Feet Treatment, tension will be melted away and you will be left feeling lighter on your feet.

Anti-ageing, deep cleansing and improved skin texture are all concerns that are relevant in men’s skincare. To prevent ageing, clear the complexion and bring back a healthy appearance to the skin, Exclusively Beauty has specialised facial treatments, to deliver the best results.

Men’s skin has some significant differences and it is important to address these dissimilarities when constructing a treatment. Did you know men’s skin is 25% thicker than women’s?  Men continually produce sebum leaving them more susceptible to acne, whereas women’s skin slows the production of oils with ageing. In men, wrinkles generally form between ages 45 to 50, however these wrinkles onset quickly and can become more prominent.

When it comes to men’s skincare it is important to also consider the concerns that occur due to shaving including ingrown hair, skin sensitivity and irritation, to build a treatment plan which delivers visible results to be teamed with simple, fast and effective maintenance at home.

As our skin ages, the ability to shed skin cells, called desquamation is slowed down. This leads to the surface of the skin becoming dry and flaky with a buildup of dead cells which physically block the pathways that allow the skin to absorb and hold moisture. These blockages also increase the risk of ingrown hair formation, especially after shaving. The most effective way to treat and prevent ingrown hair from forming under the surface is Microdermabrasion. This intensive rejuvenating treatment provides deep exfoliation with a diamond tip combined with a gentle vacuum to stimulate blood and lymph circulation to deliver nutrients to the deepest layers of the skin. Microdermabrasion also improves the appearance of acne scars and wrinkles, resurfacing the skin by improving cell turnover.

Radiofrequency is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment using the newest technology to firm loose and sagging skin, while lessening wrinkle depth. This is achieved by Tripollar Radiofrequency energy generating heat to penetrate the skin causing local contractions of collagen fibres to lift the skin. It encourages the growth of new collagen fibres to form and remodels and restructures collagen from the dermal layer for a smoother and firmer appearance. If wrinkles are your concern, minimising lines is possible with Exel Expression Wrinkles Control. This light textured hydrating gel cream contains Argireline peptides (which contains 6 amino acids to easily penetrate the skin) an exclusive ingredient which acts as a dermal relaxant, minimising the micro-movements that cause expression wrinkles. It smooths the skin, prevents and treats wrinkles, while supplying the skin with nutrition leaving it refreshed and luminous.

Blocked pores are another common concern for men’s skincare, and clearing congestion and blackheads is best done professionally with facial extractions. An Ultrasonic Cleansing Spatula is used to deeply clear the pores, ridding them of any build up of oxidised sebum and dead skin cells, without causing irritation. Extractions can also help to remove ingrown hair caused by regular shaving.

All Men’s Facial Treatments are always completed with a Neutralising Mask, to hydrate and soothe the skin, which is especially effective for calming skin irritation caused by shaving, leaving your skin soft and balanced.

Facial shaving can sometimes affect the skin and it is important to treat skin irritation and damage, as well as soothe the skin and prevent ingrown hair. If you suffer from breakouts and acne after shaving, Exel Soapy Cream will clean the skin and prevent the buildup of bacteria on shaved areas. To prevent ingrown hair, Exel Astringent Lotion or Herbal Lotion with Witch Hazel will help to keep the skin clean, hydrated and prevents the hair from becoming ingrown. If shaving causes skin irritation, soothe the skin with Exel Collagen Lotion, which locks in moisture and strengthens the skin. Dryness and flaking can be treated with Exel Moisturising Lotion, a deeply hydrating and soothing moisturiser with green tea and cucumber extracts. With daily use of products for your skin type and condition, the negative effects of shaving will be prevented by maintaining a natural healthy skin.

Men’s Anti-Ageing can also benefit from other treatments for the face and body, to have you looking and feeling at your best.

Eyebrow shaping and styling is important to bring out your features as the eyebrows frame the face. Correcting the shape can lift the eyes to define and give a youthful appearance naturally.

Hair removal for the body also has become a popular choice for men, as it leaves the skin feeling smooth and clean. Waxing and IPL hair reduction are great options for body hair, as they also improve the skin condition and are easy to maintain, as opposed to shaving, which can cause irritation and ingrown hair.

If you have any concerns about fat reduction and skin firming for the body, Ultrasound Fat Cavitation and Radio Frequency Skin Tightening can give you your desired results. These Body Contouring treatments not only break down fatty deposits, but also firm and tighten the skin to give you more definition using the newest state of the art technology.

electrolysis hair removal

There are occasions when your unwanted and stubborn hair needs to be permanently removed. Depending on your gender, hair on certain parts of the body is not really necessary and can often lead to uncomfortable and embarrassing situations. Using certain depilatories like razors and shaving machines may ultimately embolden that unwanted hair. Such depilatories are nothing but temporary measures, which encourages one to find a permanent effective solution.

Over the years, several methods have been used in order to eliminate unwanted body hair. Out of all of these different methods, one of the most popular and effective ones is the electrolysis hair removal solution. In layman’s words, this hair removal method is a process in which the hair follicles are targeted via electrical current, thereby leading to dead hair. The device that is used to transfer the current to the hair follicles are small metal probes or fine, needle-shaped electrodes. Electrolysis hair removal treatments can serve as great beauty gift vouchers.
