AFTER working in the beauty industry as a therapist for 23 years, Natalie Bassett from Oxted , has launched The Hummingbird Clinic, offering treatments using the most advanced aesthetic IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) system in the UK.
The British manufactured EXCELIGHT IPL system safely and efficiently deals with the nation’s most in-demand aesthetic treatments: Hair Removal, Skin Rejuvenation, Anti- ageing, Red Vein Removal, Acne, Sun Damage, Pigmentation and Rosacea. Most people are suitable for treatment. Best results are often achieved with clients who have fair skin and dark hair. Dark hair is more easily treated as it has a high concentration of melanin. Fair hair however, contains less melanin and is harder to treat. Grey/white hair has no melanin so is not suitable for treatment.
How does the treatment feel?
The hair follicles are damaged by heat but the hairs remain in the follicles. The dead hairs shed after 1 – 3 weeks as the epidermis renews. During this period the hairs will seem to ‘grow’ as they are pushed out by the new epidermis. Only hair that is actively growing is affected, therefore multiple treatments are needed.
Prior to treatment, a consultation is conducted in which a medical history is taken to confirm suitability for treatment, and there is also an opportunity for any questions you may have to be answered. Before treatment commences you must provide written consent and a small test patch will be carried out.
Natalie decided in 2016 to complete an NVQ level 4 in laser hair removal and skin rejuvenation. She says she is passionate about helping both women and men to look and feel their best, which is why she spent several months researching the many types of laser and IPL machines available
