Boykini – Bikini Hair removal for Men

April 16, 2011

We love it when a new term is coined.  The latest to be spotted is ‘Boykini’ to represent the male ‘bikini line’ – an area which is getting more attention with the return to popularity of Speedos.

The article I read revealed a trend for Scottish men to tidy up beneath their kilts and get laser hair removal treatment in time for summer.  We all know regular waxing as a means of bikini hair removal is a pain (sorry!), so this trend could be here to stay.

Prime Minister buys laser hair removal equipment

April 13, 2011

No, not Dave, but Silvio – the embattled PM of Italy.  In his current corruption trial – he has 2 others pending! – he claims he gave money to a Moroccan-born starlet with the best of intentions.

The 45,000 euros payment is not in question, but the argument continues what it was for.  The prosecution alleges it was to have sex with her (she was underage at the time so Silvio faces 3 years in jail if found guilty) but the ever resourceful Silvio claims it was for her to buy a laser hair removal machine!

“The girl told me a very sorrowful story, which moved me. So I gave her a chance to open a beauty clinic with a friend of hers,” he said.

As they say, “the trial continues”…

Bargain Hair Removal – Who Pays?

March 17, 2011

Picked up a news story about complaints made about group purchasing site Groupon.  These seem to fall into 2 camps: advertisers that cannot cope with the response generated by the Groupon emailing machine, and, secondly, some of the amazingly cheap offers not being as useful as they should be.

Over the last few months there have been a rash of cheap laser hair removal deals on Groupon (other group purchasing sites are available!) – not by SkinGenesis I must add.  The news story reports that small businesses just cannot handle the large influx of clients all at once. Some have claimed having to wait 3 months for an appointment, and even then not being welcomed when they visit.

The other type of complaint concerns the packages themselves.  Regular laser hair removal users will know we always advise that a minimum of 6 sessions will be needed to see results – so why sell a package of 4?  But Groupon are happy to promote such deals, and some buyers are finding they have to buy supplementary treatments at a much higher rate.

So the message is, be sure to check the details before buying that coupon –  and don’t necessarily expect the same level of service that regular customers enjoy.

We’re back online again!

Sorry we’ve been away for a few months.   Thank you for all your lovely comments and for keeping this blog alive.

Topics I’m going to cover over the coming weeks include:

  • Hair removal as a means of survival (history lesson!)
  • Botox for your bits (hmm – not sure about that one…)
  • Stem cell creams
  • Bargain hair removal – who pays?

Plenty to write about, and for you to add your comments.  I’ll do my best to reply and look forward to getting to know you over the coming weeks and months.

Thanks

Get rid of unwanted facial hair with IPL

June 15, 2010

Unwanted facial hair can be a real burden for some women and is a common symptom of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). IPL hair removal treatment can effectively remove unwanted hair from the face and body, enabling those affected to rebuild their confidence and feel feminine again.

We were particularly struck by a story published on the BBC website last week of a woman suffering PCOS who constantly carries a razor in her handbag incase the stubble starts to grow back during the day. She also gets up super-early every morning to ensure all her unwanted facial hair has disappeared before her partner wakes up.

This is no way to live and as with this lady, it can be exhausting and crushing on your self worth, femininity and self confidence.

The ‘We Can Face It’ campaign was launched earlier this month, with a host of celebrity faces backing it including small-screen stylist Jason Gardiner and TV doctor Dawn Harper, who together aim to raise awareness of the problem and let sufferers know that help is available.

With fantastic medical and technological advancements, people need no longer suffer in silence. Help is right there if you are ready to confide in a sympathic GP or other organisation, like SkinGenesis, who will treat your case with the utmost respect and privacy it deserves.

Over a series of treatments, IPL (Intense Pulsed Light Therapy) can erradicate unwanted facial hair, leaving you with a smooth, hair-free complexion leaving you to get on with your life. This treatment has increased in popularity over recent years and offers an alternative to hormonal medicines.

The most reputable skin treatment clinics will provide a free consultation to assess the problem and to advise on any treatments that may be suitable for your skin problem. At SkinGenesis, you are then encouraged to have a good think about it and contact us again if it’s something you are interested in. With such sensitive problems, it’s important to us that we put you in control of regaining the confidence you once had.
