Our client Viv Kaizen lived to regret the day she had (quite a dramatic and very artistic) tattoo inked into her forearm skin several years ago. So, Lasermed tattoo removal by Alta van der Merwe to the rescue.
This is what Viv says, “Seven sessions down and the results have been AMAZING! Many of you have been asking me if it leaves scarring and I can say with confidence I’ve had none! I highly recommend #lasermedbeautifulskin.
“It’s been a long process as I haven’t been able to continue the removal process during my pregnancies. But we are finally getting there. Alta is so good at what she does.”
Above is the result after 7 tattoo removal sessions.
We want to assure all our dearest clients that we’re taking
the measures announced by President Ramaphosa very seriously. It’s business as
usual at Lasermed, but to safeguard our clients and staff against COVID-19,
we’ll continue providing you with the highest standard of hygiene.
Our staff will wear surgical masks for every treatment to
prevent possible droplet transferral. All surfaces and implements will be
cleaned with a medical-grade disinfectant after every treatment. We’ll also
provide you with a hand sanitiser prior to entering the treatment room. Please
be so kind as to let us know if you travelled overseas recently or whether
you’re feeling ill. We will happily postpone your treatment. We’d all rather be
safe than sorry. Together we can all make a difference to what’s a very serious
situation. We look forward to helping you pause the ageing process soon!
Hyaluronic acid is the body’s natural hydrator, making it
an excellent moisturiser when applied topically. The hyaluronic acid used in
#SkinCeuticals products helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve
firmness. Speak to your Lasermed therapist about these excellent products.
Enjoy a skin-fabulous time with these golden rules.
Always use skin products for your particular skin type. An oily skin has different needs to those of a dry skin. When cleansing, respect the natural balance of your skin with a pH-neutral make-up remover such as Bioderma Hydrabio H2O cleanser. The eye area is particularly fragile, so use a gentle routine for this area.
Exfoliate regularly – at least once a week. Choose a product which smooths and purifies the skin while maintaining its natural balance – NeoStrata Skin Active Exfoliating Wash is wonderful.
Use a moisturiser which balances the level of water within the skin. Obagi Hydrate Moisturiser locks in moisture and hydration for up to 8 hours.
To avoid the risk of allergies choose hypoallergenic make-up which meets the needs of all skin and eye types.
When you need to cool down after sport or a hectic day, you’ll thank your lucky stars for having Avène Thermal Spring Water spray at hand. It’s a refreshing, soothing spritzer which can be used for facial redness, sunburn, skin irritation, nappy rash, during sport or travel and after make-up removal, shaving and hair removal.
Finally, whatever the season, use sunscreen daily and re-apply regularly. The Heliocare sunscreens are classified as advanced anti-ageing photo-immunoprotectants. You can’t go wrong with one of these.
Today’s anti-ageing cosmeceuticals can indeed turn back the clock. You simply need to know what to look for.
Number one age-buster in terms of prevention is undoubtedly sunscreen and the Heliocare products in particular are the foremost choice of dermatologists. The Heliocare 360° range offers the most complete coverage spectrum against UVB, UVA, IR-A and visible light as well as intense antioxidant protection with Fernblock FC. In addition, the products help repair damage to cellular and mitochondrial DNA due to the presence of roxisomes.
For your skincare regimen, look out for these research-proven ingredients:
Retinol – it’s the gold standard in anti-ageing products, increasing skin cell turnover and stimulating collagen synthesis.
C – is not only necessary for
collagen production and maintenance, but it’s also a potent antioxidant that
can neutralise free radicals in the skin:
Peptides – These chains of amino acids act as signalling molecules in cells, telling them to heal, renew and slough away.
Glycolic Acid – exfoliates and increases cell turnover to clarify pores, refine skin texture and improve skin tone.
Some ingredients in anti-ageing products should be avoided experts say. These include petroleum-based products such as mineral oil, paraffin and propylene glycol.
With the right products and a dedicated skin care regime, we can all keep age at bay.
