The closure of salons and the impact this will have on the results and maintenance of beauty treatments may be a concern for many beauty fans.
Although we can’t wait to see you all very soon, we want you to stay safe; which is why we’re providing some easy tips and tricks to maintain your laser hair removal and aesthetic results.
Laser Hair Removal Treatments
Fortunately, laser hair removal provides permanent hair reduction; so, the results you currently have will not revert.
Laser hair removal is completed through a course of treatments in order to catch your hair during the Anagen phase, which is known as the active growth phase.
The reason for equally spaced out treatments is because the Anagen phase occurs at different stages depending where the hair is grown on your body. So, for the best results your treatment should be every 4-8 weeks, depending on where you’re having laser hair removal.
Don’t worry if you have to wait longer than the recommended 4-8 weeks for laser hair removal, the treatment will still work and give you the desired results.
In the meantime, you can maintain your laser hair removal results by shaving or safely using hair removal creams. However, please remember that aftercare is still an essential part of your laser hair removal maintenance; continue to follow the advice of your practitioner and apply SPF to treated areas to avoid sun damage.

Dermal Fillers and Anti-Wrinkle Treatments
As you know, dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle treatments can only be administered by a qualified aesthetic practitioner or medical professional.
Dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle treatments are non-permanent, lasting for approximately 6-12 months. Although you may not be able to have top ups of your chosen treatments, you will be able to continue where you left off prior to clinics closing.
The best thing you can do to maintain your aesthetic goals is to follow a good quality skincare routine:
- Double cleanse your skin to ensure all makeup is removed. To double cleanse, use a makeup remover followed by your favourite facial cleanser.
- Moisturise! Keeping your skin hydrated us essential – fine lines and wrinkles are likelier to appear if you allow your skin to become dry.
- Apply an SPF. You should use a facial SPF every single day – even in the winter, and on cloudy days. This helps to protect your skin from harmful UV rays that speed up the ageing process. Pay close attention to the areas you have treatment on!
- Drink plenty of water. Keeping your body hydrated is just as important as keeping your skin hydrated. Drinking enough water helps to enhance the water absorption of Hyaluronic Acid based filler treatments – which will help to prolong results and keep your skin looking youthful.
