Hot waxing: More pleasure, less pain!

hot waxing

That’s right, just imagine the benefits of long term (temporary) hair removal with less pain than the usual tactics.


Waxing has always been the number 1 ‘go to’ solution when it comes to long – term temporary hair removal because of it’s effective results and endless list of advantages.

 

How it works

The melted wax is applied on the skin then left to cool. It then moulds itself around the hair follicles, gripping them firmly – so once it has become sticky, the skin is pulled taut and the cloth is then pulled quickly and sharply in an upwards direction and the hair is ripped from the skin by the roots, leaving skin smooth, hairless and glowing!


A few of the benefits!

One of the best reasons is that hair takes longer to grow back. Typically no hair begins to reappear for over a week – which is pretty good compared to the stubble and prickles that start to emerge so quickly after shaving.

Both small and large areas of hair can be removed with hot wax, allowing maximum hair removal everywhere and anywhere! All we have to do is simply cover the area with wax and use a different sizes of cloth to remove the hair.

Waxing will remove any shade and consistency of hair from all types of skin – so it doesn’t even matter what hair colors, textures or type of skin you have, it will always be very effective.

Did you know that constantly waxing can weaken the follicle, which may sound a bit sad but really it can cause permanent loss of hair… which doesn’t sound too sad after all!


 

With minimal side effects (which include reddish skin, that disappears after an hour or so) as  well as the added exfoliation the waxing gives – I see no reason why waxing shouldn’t be one of your hair removal go -to’s either.

Especially now that your favourite salon if offering you hot wax from our highly skilled waxperts! We’ve also put the added effort of using high quality HOT WAX ensuring a fast, thorough & virtually pain free experience.

We hope to see you soon, Love U x

3D Lipo: Fat loss without the surgery!

3d lipo

Whether you want to get your pre-baby body back, banish the bulge or tone your body – 3D lipo is the best new alternative to weight loss surgery!

With all the hype from Apprentice winner Dr Leah Totton and Lord Sugar himself, as well as Coleen Rooney, wife of Wayne Rooney had been undergoing 3D lipo – a £999 treatment – A lot more than what we charge and we pretty much use the same machines and have great trained staff!

Alex Gerrard (Footballers Steven Gerrards wife) and Gemma Collins (from The Only Way Is Essex), where 3D Lipo made its TV debut!

We could see that she used the Cavitation part of the procedure as a non-surgical way of removing the unwanted fat! – 1 of the parts of 3D Lipo that can be used as a stand-alone treatment.

So what is the big deal with 3D Lipo then? 


What is 3D Lipo?

There are 4 parts to the treatment, and depending on what you want, a combination of treatments are used. How long it takes depends on the treatments you’re using.

cavitationPart 1) 

Cavitation:

Based on low frequency ultrasound. The Ultrasound produces a strong wave of pressure to fat cell membranes which disintegrates into a liquid state. The result is natural, permanent fat loss.

With Cavitation, you can literally see the results after the first treatment! Which is amazing since non-surgical procedures usually take weeks to see the difference.

To watch a quick video on Cavitation click here.

CryolipolysisPart 2) 

Cryolipolysis:

This treatment can be done on its own, we have a separate blog on our website just for this. The combination of electro and cryo therapy, a huge 20% -40% of the fat cells in the treated area die in a natural way and dissolve over the course of several months.

You can only have one of these every 6-12 months.

To watch a quick video on Cryolipolysis click here.

Click here for the more detailed blog.

 dermologyPart 3) 

3D Dermology:

This too can be a stand alone procedure, it is a Vacuum skin rolling targeting cellulite reduction.

In other words, it sucks the top layers of fat and skin, drawing out toxin and ‘rolls’ them out the surface of the skin. “It feels like it’s doing its job”.

To watch a quick video on 3D Dermology click here.

radio-frequencyPart 4) 

Radio Frequency:

Through the use of 3 or more poles it delivers radio frequency energy under the skin which is controlled and limited to the treatment area.Because of the high treatment focus, there’s no pain as less energy is required, there’s shorter treatment services and variable depths of penetration.

Over all it’ll tighten the skin and melt fat cells.

Full Body massage, 60 minutes: Apart from the clear benefits such as feeling relaxed and stress free, a full body massage also aids the release of tight body muscles that could effect your posture – which makes you feel tired and sluggish. This massage will make you feel brand new, as if you’ve been refreshed and resting for days! A peaceful 60 minutes that will put a smile back onto your face.


Microdermabrasion Facial: This facial takes facials to a whole new level! Deep exfoliation which removes dead skin cells which improve the texture and smoothness of your skin, and because this is such a deep cleansing facial, it allows the production of new cells to grow – meaning better skin.

The Magic of Bee Venom

Natures own Botox and the stars secret to younger looking skin


As you all know, we at Love U are launching our new skincare range and we wanted you to know a little bit more about one of our favourite products

BEE VENOM! 


loveu-skincare-london-2

This “NATURAL BOTOX” is beauty’s secret to younger looking skin, used in anti-aging products and most products that help your skin look younger.

What happens is the bee venom ‘tricks’ the skin into thinking it’s been stung and a result attracts blood flow to the area it’s been applied to. As a result, your muscles relax and skin is taut. Then prepare for skin that is REVITALISED and feels NEW.

There are VISIBLE results in the improvement of SKIN TONE and ELASTICITY

And we’re not the only ones who swear by it !
Even the Duchess of Cambridge, KATE MIDDLETON has used bee venom to keep her skin looking flawless. As well as the likes of VICTORIA BECKHAM, KYLIE and DANNI MINOGUE!


 

Isn’t it great when you find out how to look as great as all those celebrities without surgery or completely emptying out your pockets?! Love it.

Is it all really worth it, Laser and IPL hair removal ?

 

Ladies and Gents, let’s actually talk about long term hair removal!


We all have unwanted hair that we remove every few 1-2 weeks, and sometimes it can be a struggle going out your way when you’re so busy, just to remove some hair. Whether it’s on your face, arms, legs or anywhere for that matter – Hair removal is part of our weekly routines, something we’re so used to that we’ve forgotten what it feels like going au naturel

… Until now!

_MG_8637
Love U Salon

I’m pretty sure we all know someone or have heard from other sources that IPL and Laser hair removal are something we should look into in terms of long term hair removal. But let me break it down for you.

What is IPL and Laser hair removal? 

Laser hair removal is a laser beam being aimed at certain sections of the skin, destroying the hair bulb itself – meaning the area which the hair begins to grow from, so no new hair!

IPL stands for Intense Pulse Light hair removal. It’s the same method as using a laser, except it’s not a laser. The difference between IPL and Laser hair removal is that the wavelength, energy times and time you’re exposed to it can be set to suit you – so it’s more personally adjusted. Also, IPL can treat several more hairs at one time.


How long?

It really depends on your preference – how many sessions you want and where you want them. Obviously, the more sessions you go to, the more hair will be removed. Each session differs depending on exactly what you’re getting done. Click here to see the different areas we have to offer at Love U Salons, just let us know if you need to change it up a bit.


Don’t be scared, we understand.

Like anything new, it’s only normal for people to go searching online, reading reviews and literally looking for bad signs. It’s good to have prior research, but try not to accept everything you read, the experience is different for everyone.

Some people described it as “like having a tattoo” where as others would say “It felt like a warming sensation”. However you may find it, we understand and will support you to make the experience the best it can be.

After the first session, you’ll see theres nothing to be afraid about and you’ll begin to look forward to the sessions because the results become more noticeable – and you’ll love seeing less and less hair! 

_MG_8667
The pink flamingo treatment room at Love U Salon

Results!

THIS is what will make it all worth it! Once treatments are over, you will see little hair growth, maybe an occasional shave here and there – because there’s no way of removing 100% of your hair.

Say goodbye to those weekly meetings and in the long run, time and money! You may decide to visit a beautician after 6 -12 months or come back for a few more sessions.

But seriously?! You’ll never understand the joy of being hairless and seeing your hair shedding – as strange as it sounds – until you’ve done it!


Health and Safety

Our skin is precious, and it’s only natural to be extra careful when getting anything done. So make sure you’re being safe when getting anything done!

It’s important that when you’re thinking of getting IPL/Laser treatment that you’re going to a qualified place that’s using effective and approved equipment. DON’T go looking for the cheapest options, they may not be the most reliable or safe treatment. Better safe than sorry, I say. 

At Love U salons we use COSMEDICO IPL machines and have fully trained and experience staff at hand – So just know you’re in good hands!

That extra little kick of confidence! Manicures!

This is for all the women out there that know how the littlest things can give us all that extra boost we need to keep being fabulous! 


Whether it’s a new pair of shoes, a new outfit or that new bag you fell in love with the second you saw it, we all have something that gives us that extra little sparkle and hop when we walk. I think it’s fair to say that getting your nails done is in that list too! It’s strange how such a simple and small treat can make you feel like the most important person in room.

shellac-nailsI could start talking about how manicures prevent wrinkles on the nails, or how they will help with any wear & tear on the nails. Or how it removes those horrible cracks and rough skin showing, or even how the massages aid blood circulation…

But… that’s not the first reason we go to get our nails done. What’s important is that  feel good feeling you get in just those few moments of getting a manicure!

We all love seeing our glowing new skin after exfoliating. The aroma of the creams and oils being massaged into our palms and tips that leave our hands feeling soft and oh so supple.

That amazing feel in when the manicurist push the right pressure points and you can literally feel the stress leave from your fingertips. The shaping and tidying of the nails making them feel new and stronger than ever.

And finally, the application of the bright and vibrant colours that’ll ooze your mood for the week – optional of course, sometimes our natural nails look more than good enough, especially after all THAT! Whatever you like girl, own it!

 At Love U Salons, we understand this and want you to leave feeling ready to take on the world with those beautiful fingertips, whether it be your birthday, anniversary or that nerve wrecking presentation you have at work tomorrow, but best of all, just because you feel like it!

Every once in a while, pamper yourself to the tender love and care from our professionals at Love U, so just sit and enjoy this little treat – We’ll take care of the rest for you.


Our Manicuresshellac-nails-2

Here at Love U, we offer Love U Manicures for great prices, but my favourite are the CND Shellac Manicures that give you colour that lasts up to 14 days – so you can feel at your best for even longer!

And to add to all the joys, it has ZERO DRYING TIME, so no time is wasted fanning your hands around and being incapable of doing anything without the fear of ruining that beautiful colour – we’ve all been there!

So whenever you’re ready to feel great, starting at your fingertips, give us a call or drop us an email to book!

3D-Lipo and Cryolipolysis


What is it?

Cryolipolysis, or in other words fat freezing, is the newest way of reducing fat cells, bulges or unwanted fat bumps on the skin. This new technology is competing with surgical treatments such as liposuction – but the best thing about cryolipolysis is that there is NO surgery required.

How it works

Fat freezing involves using a hand held device to freeze up to 40% of fat in the cells down to -6ºC. The frozen fat cells become crystallised, without any apparent damage to the overlying skin or surrounding tissue.

Then the body naturally disposes of the dead cells over the course of 2-3 months – which is amazing since other lipo and  fat removal treatments require you to spend days resting or under care – whereas with Cryolipolysis, you can walk out on the same day!

Cryolipolysis at Love U

We have absolutely GREAT offers for a limited time only!
