Blog - The Brookdale Clinic, New Year Resolutions

A Resolution for a New You!

Have you made a New Year’s resolution yet?

The start of a new year often brings with it resolve to make personal changes; emotionally, physically and also in how and where you spend your time.  Time for a fresh start and a new resolution.  The chance to put aside the negatives and the “I never got round to...” of the past year.  The opportunity to focus on the future.

Hands up – can you guess my age?

When was the last time someone had a guess at your age?  Do you think they’d guess the same age if they looked only at your hands?

Think – Madonna, Goldie Hawn, Kate Moss.  All women with fabulous faces, but have you noticed their hands?  It’s as though they belong to different people!

A recent survey of 1000 women in the US indicated that almost 80% (78%) of respondents over the age of 40 wish they could change the appearance of their hands.  Nearly two thirds would have a non-surgical treatment to improve the look of the hands.  Do you feel the same? 

Do your hands age you?

Hands at The Brookdale ClinicIt’s common for women – and some men – to feel that the backs of their hands age them.

Fluctuations in body weight and the thinning of skin as we grow older, mean that veins and tendons can become more noticeable.

Blog - Be Wedding Ready at The Brookdale Clinic

Be Ready for the Wedding of the Year!

Wedding Season’s in full swing and if you’re marrying on the 19th May or are a guest at a wedding on that date, you’ll be in good company!  Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will tie the knot in Windsor watched by their 600 or so invited guests and of course the wedding party will be wanting to look and feel their best.

So why shouldn’t you too?

As an upcoming Bride, Mother of the Bride or Groom, or as a Bridesmaid or Maid of Honour, your stress levels are likely to be rising somewhat around now.  Along with all the usual preparations you’ll be making for the event itself (flowers, seating plans, hen do… the list goes on!), you’ve hopefully also allocated some time for yourself!  You’ve probably booked in the obvious; hair, make-up and nails, but what about

How soon will I see results after IPL Hair Removal at The Brookdale Clinic, Knustford

When will I see results from Laser Hair Removal or IPL treatment?

This is a question we get asked many times by new clients.

It’s important to understand that Laser Hair Removal or IPL treatment isn’t an overnight quick fix.  As with many things (diets included!) you have to follow the rules over a period of time.

The number of sessions needed varies according to the part of the body being treated, due to the variability in the number of follicles.  So, to remove facial hair you’ll need more sessions than if you’re removing leg hair, for instance.  Many people get the result they want with 6 sessions, but others need more, and this can depend on many factors such as hair colour and hormones.

To get the very best out of your course of hair removal it’s essential that
