I have Dermaspa to thank for single handedly saving my eyebrows after they just about survived the over-plucking madness of the early noughties so when I was asked to try out the new Soprano Platinum ICE laser hair removal I knew I would be in good hands. Girls and boys, let’s be honest, shaving is time consuming and irritating and the idea of laser hair removal has always appealed so I jumped at the chance to try out this new ‘virtually painless’ treatment at Milton Keynes’ most luxurious beauty clinic Dermaspa.
Dermaspa is Milton Keynes’ jewel in the crown when it comes to beauty treatments. Opened in 2008 by Husband and Wife Team Nilam Patel & Peter Holmes they do luxury better than anyone and have become one of the leading beauty clinics outside of London. As the founder of the high Definition Eyebrow Treatment, Nilam is not only my eyebrow saviour but also the Queen of eyebrows. She is the lady behind many a perfect eyebrow gracing some of our favourite famous faces- many of whom can often be seen returning to Dermaspa for her expertise. The team are based in a gorgeous barn conversion in Broughton, MK which has been decorated beautifully and is total interior goals if you’re a fan of the monochrome like me! Inside you’ll find an open plan brow and lash bar, nail lounge and private treatment rooms and outside there is plenty of parking set away from the main road so you can relax in peace and quiet whilst getting pampered. The Dermaspa team specialise in beauty and aesthetic treatments with everything from nails, hair removal, make up, specialist skin treatments to permanent cosmetics on their menu. With all this luxury and expertise it’s easy to imagine feeling daunted walking in to Dermaspa but their team are so welcoming and make you feel comfortable and special just like any of their famous clients!
Soprano ICE Platinum Laser Hair Removal
Dermaspa have introduced the Soprano ICE Platinum laser hair removal treatment to their menu which claims to be virtually painless so I couldn’t wait to try it. I know what you’re thinking, is it actually as ‘virtually painless’ as it says? I’m here to confirm that yes it is (thankfully, as I’m a bit of a wimp!). I first visited Dermaspa for a patch test, which as with any beauty treatment is important to ensure you don’t have a negative reaction. I was greeted by their welcoming reception team and introduced to Brett who would be doing my treatment. I also spied a couple of famous Love Island faces which was pretty exciting! Brett showed me to one of their beautifully decorated treatment rooms and explained how the machine works and got me to touch the ice cold applicator to see how cold it was (very chilly, which was actually pretty nice in this heatwave!). It is this applicator that keeps the skin cool during the treatment which allows for painless hair removal, setting this system apart from others. I opted to have my underarms treated but the hair removal can be done anywhere you have unwanted hair, and once I had put on my very fetching protective glasses we got started. The treatment was so quick and when Brett asked me how I was after he started I was surprised as I couldn’t really feel anything except him moving the applicator, there was a tingling sensation and some beeping from the machine then we were done. I made my next appointment for the following week and kept an eye out for any negative reaction but there wasn’t any at all. When I returned for my first full treatment Brett took great care of me again and both underarms were done within 10 minutes, it really is as quick and painless as they say making it so easy to squeeze in an appointment in to your busy schedule.
They recommend 6-8 sessions on an area to get a long lasting (6-12 months) results, with 4-6 weeks between appointments. I can already notice a difference in hair re-growth, particularly where I have had the patch test and the first treatment and can’t wait to continue to see results and ditch the razor! I will spare you any underarm pictures for now but keep an eye on the blog as I’ll be reviewing the results until the end of my 6 session course!
I’d love to hear from you if you’ve had laser hair removal so pop me a comment below with how you found it. I think I’m definitely going to get hooked as the thought of waving goodbye to razors and shaving gel is far too tempting!
