It’s thought that polycystic ovary syndrome is thought to affect around 1 in every 5 women in the UK. With it being this common, there are treatments available to combat the unwanted symptoms and physical traits associated with PCOS that are very liberating for those who choose them. One of those treatments is laser hair removal, and it can be a confidence-boosting and self-affirming treatment.
A Vancouver based study found that unwanted tattoos are a very common phenomenon, with more men than women seemingly full of regret. A quarter of the people in the study admitted to experiencing frustration due to the stigma attached to their tattoo. And of those who decided to have their ink removed, 69% were men and 31% were women.
Ah, tattoos. They can seem like a such a good idea at the time. A funny tattoo on a whim, a drunken decision to get your friend’s name on your ankle, or something that at that moment held a lot of value to you. These are all tattoo types that are bound to change as time goes on. Maybe the joke tattoo causes you more frowns than laughs, you’ve drifted apart from the name etched on you, or your ink no longer represents the person you are. If you find yourself looking at a tattoo and wishing you could turn back time, then this might not be the first time you’ve considered laser tattoo removal. How does laser tattoo removal work, and could it help you with your unwanted artwork?
Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that most commonly affects the face and can worsen as time goes on if left untreated. It’s exceptionally common, especially in fair-skinned people, and unfortunately it not completely understood. This also means that there is no cure, however there are ways to relieve symptoms here at the Private Skin Laser Clinic in North London. Let’s discover the causes of rosacea, what can inflame it, and which treatments we propose.
Age spots are the result of sun damage. They occur when we expose ourselves to too much sunshine, without having first applied a high enough factor of sun cream. Lots of sunbathing when we’re young can lead to age spots when we’re older, as they tend to occur as our skin matures and our collagen production begins to reduce.
Thread veins are usually found on areas like the legs and mostly appear on any area of the body beneath the heart, but facial thread veins are incredibly common on the face too. Whether across the cheeks or streaking down the nose, a lot of people think that their facial thread veins prematurely age them. They may be associated with ageing skin, but thread veins are increasingly common in those in their 20s and 30s. Nevertheless, many people choose to have them treated and removed, but how do you remove facial thread veins?
The average woman will shave just under 8000 times in her lifetime! This is a figure that has been cited in numerous surveys, but even if it was just half the amount, that’s still an awful lot of time spent shaving. Just think of all the other things you could be doing instead! Wouldn’t you like to find a way to massively reduce the amount of hair you produce, so you can free up your time to spend it more productively? Laser hair removal is a very effective method of hair removal. It involves using a laser to damage the hair follicles through heating them, so that they can no longer produce hairs and in doing so, it will provide you with permanent hair reduction. You could potentially reduce your hair regrowth by up to 80%.
Science poorly understands rosacea, but it remains an extremely common skin condition that mainly affects the face. It results in redness, swelling, pimples, and small and superficial blood vessels that become visible on the surface of the skin. Often the nose, cheeks, forehead, and chin are the most commonly affected areas of the face. Sadly, there is no cure because this is a recurring skin condition, though it can be managed efficiently with specialist treatments. We think it’s important to understand this skin condition before even considering treatment, because this way you will know what to expect, how to avoid flare-ups in the future, and how to tailor your lifestyle to best suit your skin.
For the majority of us, when we think of Botox, we think of tighter faces and younger looking skin. And for the most part, this is completely accurate. Botox injections are an incredibly popular anti-wrinkle treatment, for those who are either cautious of developing wrinkles or those who already have prominent signs of aging and wish to soften their appearance.
Many people are exceptionally proud of and love their tattoos. Whether it has sentimental value, or you just still have an appreciation for the design. However, some can have immense regret for their ink. The tattoo may have been an impulsive decision, one made whilst very intoxicated, a reminder of a relationship you’re no longer in or it may represent a set of ideals and values that you no longer hold. For these people, their tattoo is a constant reminder of the person they used to be. It’s these people that tattoo removal would benefit.
Age spots are the result of an excess production of melanin or skin pigment. We don’t always know why age spots develop, but they commonly appear in areas exposed to the sun. They can leave you feeling self-conscious, especially if you feel that they prematurely age you. The Private Skin Laser Clinic in London is here to offer you a solution in the form on laser age spots removal.
Getting a tattoo can feel almost like a rite of passage for some people, especially when they’re young, feeling impulsive, or are particularly fond of a certain art style or design. Some tattoo recipients remain fond of their tattoos for the rest of their lives, happy with the artist’s handy work or proud of the part of their lives it has come to symbolise. These people need not consider laser tattoo removal.
Our skin is our body’s largest organ and will physically represent us and our lifestyle for the rest of our lives, but what about if we suffer from rosacea? Does this skin condition jeopardise our largest organ’s health? Contrary to what some people may believe, rosacea doesn’t actually affect the health of our skin, but it can become uncomfortable at times and can appear embarrassing or unsightly.

Are you living with them? Here at our clinic in North London, we see the effects varicose veins can have on a woman’s, or a man’s, confidence. Men are also affected and can be treated in the same way.
Do you have unsightly facial hair that bothers you every time you look in the mirror? Perhaps you’ve been teased for having a monobrow, but never managed to maintain the plucking required to keep your eyebrows separate. Maybe as a woman, you’re concerned that your cheeks, or the back of your neck is hairier than you’d ideally like, but you’re concerned that by shaving these areas and creating stubble, you’ll cause yourself to appear more masculine?
