Imagine the joy of not having to think about shaving your legs every other day or having to cover up because you’ve just not had the time. There may not be much cause to shave legs now that autumn is here, but now is the perfect time to start thinking about getting our bodies ready for next summer so you don’t have to think about shaving your legs ever again!
Research reveals that on average, a woman will spend £6,500 and eight weeks of her life shaving unwanted hair. Whilst women who wax twice a month will spend around £23,000 on this during their lifetime. Which is why the popularity of laser hair removal is increasing as it saves both time and money and is a permanent solution. Laser hair removal is an ideal and effective treatment to get rid of unwanted hair on any part of the face or body, and is revered by both women and men and all skin types, including dark skin.
Here at Aspire Clinic, we are launching a brand-new laser hair removal treatment, using the latest technology – Cynosure, so you can now aspire to be hair free in an easy and cost-effective way!
How does it work?
Laser hair removal targets the hair follicle using brief pulses of light energy. The laser light is absorbed by melanin (pigmentation) in the hair follicle and creates heat which travels down the hair shaft and destroys the hair follicle, this giving you a permanent hair removal result. The process is completely safe and leaves the surrounding tissue unharmed.
How long does it take?
The actual treatment itself is very quick, and a course of eight treatments is arranged to achieve permanent reduction. These are usually spaced at four-to-six week intervals, depending on which area is being treated. After treatment, the active hairs will start to fall out within two weeks.
Who’s it for?
Laser hair removal is ideal for anyone – both men and women - with unwanted hair. Whilst the bikini area, legs and underarms are particularly popular amongst women, laser hair removal is also an ideal for solution for:
A 0% finance option is available to those booking a course of treatments. The clinic also offers a 20% discount to women diagnosed with PCOS.
From 1st-5th October, Aspire’s Cool Week will be taking place to help you look and feel fabulous this festive season.
Cool Week is your chance to find out more about Aspire’s non-surgical fat freezing treatments and enjoy fabulous event-only discounts that will leave you with a more sculpted body just in time to get in to that little black dress this Christmas.
Fat freezing is a safe and proven way of permanently removing fat cells resulting in up to 27% reduction of volume in the treated area. It is able to debulk and sculpt parts of the body that resist diet and exercise and can be used to treat any part of the body where there’s ‘pinchable’ fat.
Aspire offers both CoolSculpting and Cooltech fat freezing treatments. The technology has been developed for over a decade, with CoolSculpting being the only FDA approved machine of its kind, making it the highest quality treatment option available; and as of August 2018, over 6 million treatments have been performed worldwide. This month, we’re excited to be launching Aspire’s Cooltech machine, which will allow us to give the ultimate fat freezing results for our patients, alongside CoolSculpting.
Fat freezing treatments work by delivering controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin, while leaving the skin itself unaffected. The treated fat cells are cooled to -10 degrees centigrade, resulting in them being permanently destroyed. Over the next few weeks, the body naturally processes the destroyed fat cells and the body naturally excretes them, leaving a slimmer, more shapely body.
Our most popular treatment areas are: the abdomen, the flanks, the chin and the inner and outer thighs, as well as ‘bingo wings’. CoolSculpting is successful on adults of all ages and any body shape, and the great news is that the results are permanent and the fat goes for good!
Ageing may be a fact of life, but looking our age doesn’t have to be…
What do you see when you look in the mirror? Crows feet around the eyes? Deeper frown lines and than you would like? Wrinkles, lack of structure and lifeless skin are natural signs of the ageing process in us all. And one of the most common complaints about ageing skin is the way it tends to sag around the face and neck.
The good news is we can now reverse these signs of ageing with a fabulous new treatment called Profhilo. It gives beautiful, natural looking results and you won’t have to go under the knife to defy time or gravity.
Here at Aspire, we have just launched Profhilo, the award winning pure-hydrating and skin-tightening injectable treatment.
Jenny O’Neill, Aspire’s Clinic Director said: “I see many patients with loose and crepey skin, particularly on the lower face and neck. With its incredible skin remodelling results, Profhilo will be a game-changer in combatting signs of ageing and renewing the skin from within.”
Profhilo is a twice-yearly treatment made up of hyaluronic acid in its purest form to nourish dermal cells and restore firmness to the skin. Whilst hyaluronic acid comprises 78% of the body’s skin and is the element that retains moisture to hydrate the skin, the body’s natural ability to regenerate hyaluronic acid decreases with age. This results in skin losing elasticity and becoming saggy. By putting hyaluronic acid back in to the skin, Profhilo is the perfect solution to addressing the ageing process.
Profhilo is a 45 minute treatment and involves five injections to the area being treated. This is repeated after four weeks. It is the ideal treatment for the face, neck, décolletage, hands and upper arms, and lasts 6-12 months, after which time it is naturally and safely metabolised by your system.
Profhilo costs £750 for the face or neck, and £1100 for the face and neck combined.
Aspire Clinic is holding a Profhilo Pure Skin Hydration Consultation Event on Thursday 20th September 2018 at our clinic based at the Madejski Stadium, Reading. There will be event-only discounts available on the day.
