Is Unwanted Hair Getting You Down?

Is Unwanted Hair Getting You Down?

Unwanted or excess hair can be upsetting for both men and women and dealing with it can become a daily battle.  

Ellipse IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology offers a clinically-proven, safe and effective method of permanent hair reduction, so you can say goodbye to shaving or waxing and say hello to smooth, hair-free skin.

According to British beauty brand Escentual, women spend 72 days shaving their legs over a lifetime!

So, how does it work?

Ellipse uses short, safe bursts of light to remove unwanted hair in minutes.  Hair contains pigment that absorbs the light and converts it to heat.  The hair transmits this heat into the hair follicle, which is then destroyed and unable to produce a new hair.

How many treatments do I need?

Hair grows in three different cycles and only follicles in the growth phase contain hair and can be destroyed by the heat.  As the majority of our hair is in the resting phase, it's necessary to have a course of at least 6 treatments at intervals of between 4 - 6 weeks.  

Is it safe?

We've been successfully treating our clients' excess hair for the past 14 years, you'll be in the capable hands of our specially trained and sympathetic IPL Therapist.  

Clinical trials documenting Ellipse's safety and effectiveness have been carried out and we have full medical support from an independent Laser Protection Advisor.

March 11, 2016
Pale might be interesting but who doesn't want a gentle golden glow this time of year, especially when the weather is so cold and grey.

Here's our guide to faking it.

In the days leading up to your tan carry out the following steps - preparation is the key to the perfect faux glow.

  • Exfoliate.  Applying fake tan to dry, flaky skin will lead to a patchy tan.  Gentle exfoliation, getting rid of all those dead skin cells, will give you a longer lasting, even tan.
  • Moisturise.  Pay attention to knees,...

Protect your Hair from the Pool this Summer

July 29, 2015



Ok, if wearing a swimming cap isn't an option, these are our top tips to pool-proofing your hair.

1.  Saturate your hair with clean water before diving in.  This will help stop the chlorine and pool water being absorbed by your hair.

Post Holiday Hair Rescue Package

September 18, 2014
With the summer coming to a close we all want to keep that post holiday glow just a bit longer.  But, however well you tried to protect your hair this summer it's inevitable that the sun will have taken it's toll, leaving it looking dry and dull.

Just like your skin, hair becomes dehydrated in the sun, making it prone to split ends and damage.  That, along with chlorine and sea water, it just doesn't stand a chance.  The sun acts like a bleach, even on natural hair, fading the colour and somet...

With the World Cup just around the corner, here at David Patrick our thoughts have turned to all things Brazilian and that includes the Bikini Line!  But ladies, you might be pleased to know, a more natural look is making a come-back.

Apparently according to a recent poll canvassing 1,000 men, the most popular look is 'trimmed and tidy'.  With 43% preferring the 'Bermuda Triangle', trimmed hair with waxed edges and just 12% chose the full Hollywood.  Now, that must be good news!
