Why Wax?


We wonder why in today’s modern hectic world some women still prefer to go to their beautician every 4 to 6 weeks for waxing treatment.

Not only can this be completely inconvenient but it is also hugely expensive over a lifetime. Take for example a girl who pays an average of £40 to wax her bikini, lower leg, and underarm; and who makes an appointment every 6 weeks. Her waxing bill for the year will be about £350. If she does this for 30 years from when she is 18 her total bill for waxing will be a staggering £10,000.

Apart from the cost waxing has other major disadvantages.

  • It is sore
  • You have to allow the hair to grow before it is effective
  • It causes trauma to the skin
  • It is prone to in-grown hairs
  • You have to physically go every 6 weeks

What is the alternative?

Electrolysis and creams don’t work. The staff at Blossom Cosmetic Laser Clinic believe they can help.  They have invested in the latest “new generation” Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) machine.

They believe IPL  can be the answer. IPL permanent hair reduction is an innovative, reliable and safe technique for removing unwanted hair. It works on the basis of photothermolysis (heating with light) which stops hair follicles from growing without damaging the skin.

Compared with traditional lasers it is less painful, more versatile and gives better long term results.
As IPL is a permanent solution it is much more cost effective. At Blossom they charge £49 per area per session. Using the above example a girl wanting the hair removed from her lower leg, bikini and underarm would pay £49 for each underarm; £49 for each side of the bikini; and £49 for the front and £49 for the back of each lower leg; totalling £392 for each session. On average, because IPL only targets hair in the growth phase, 4 to 6 session are required with a 4 week gap between each session. Therefore a girl could have permanent hair reduction within 4 months for £1568. A saving of nearly £8,500; not including the wasted time and petrol on those needless visits for the rest of her life for waxing.
