POST-LOCKDOWN...How Are We Feeling? Mood Busting Treatments to Get Us Back on Track

We hope everyone is feeling hopeful as the Spring weather improves our moods and our landscape. The daffodils and crocuses are in bloom and it's almost lambing season in the fields, all of which are a beautiful sight to behold. With our third and final lockdown hopefully coming to an end soon and "non-essential" businesses reopening (beauty sure feels essential, right?), how are we feeling? I know I can't wait to get back to the hair salon (who else has crazy hair?), nail salon (eh! what are these things and what happened?), massage parlour (mmm! relax!), and gym fast enough (I need a little helping hand with the fitness levels) – plus, who doesn't need a facial to fix those lockdown skin problems? Here are some mood-busing treatments that you've probably excited about to get us back on track.

1. Facials

For many of us, having to wear a mask for extended periods or even just our trips to the supermarket have left our skin condition less than pristine, which is why the new phrase "maskne" has been coined. For those suffering from bad skin post-lockdown, why not treat yourself to a facial or a series of facials (usually four treatments)? You can get your skin back to its beautiful condition in no time.

At NU-U Laser and Aesthetics we offer two types of facials: the carbon laser facial and the omni-hydra facial. Which one you choose is up to you (or you can choose a combination of the two).

Carbon laser facials resurface the skin and remove dirt and debris from the pores by removing a carbon mask that has been applied to the skin. You'll feel a slight pricking sensation with this treatment. A carbon laser facial also stimulates collagen production, reducing fine lines and wrinkles and improving the skin's look and texture overall (as well as the deep-down stuff!). This treatment costs £70 per facial.

An omni-hydra facial is a multi-step facial, combining hydro dermabrasion and a mild chemical peel. This treatment is restorative, anti-ageing, and moisturising. The acids and treatments break down the skin and remove dirt and oil. It's a relaxing treatment with no discomfort, which ends with a nutrient-infusion mask. This treatment starts at £80 per facial and can be tailored to each individual's needs.

Facials, even just one, can be a rejuvenating and pampering treatment that you deserve, a way to take care of your needs. When your face looks and feels great, you feel happier and more confident. Facials leave your face glowing and help restore the skin in ways that traditional face washes and moisturisers cannot do, so facials are the number one mood-busting treatment this season.

2. Laser teeth whitening

Many of us have been drinking extra caffeine over the last year. Even though many work from home and don't have the long commute, which means longer in bed, with the kitchen mere feet away, many people have been drinking extra coffee and tea. All those extra dark, staining drinks can mean less-than-white teeth for many of us. Our second recommended mood-busting treatment, therefore, is to get your teeth whitened.

Our laser teeth whitening treatment costs £99 and whitens your teeth by up to 10 shades. As soon as we can smile without masks, you'll be glad of having a pearly white smile to show off, and with all those upcoming summer and winter weddings (you know, the ones that had to be rescheduled from last year), you'll want your smile to be confident and beaming.

A white smile and clear skin can instil confidence! Check out our laser teeth whitening page for more information.

3. Laser hair removal

Our final mood-busting and long-term treatment is IPL laser hair removal. Facials and teeth whitening last months but hair removal is forever! It's the one treatment that has permanent results and can create confidence for those 2022 beach holidays abroad (or those who are lucky enough to go away this year). Imagine not having to pack the razor, spend time plucking, waxing, epilating, and worrying about body hair!

With laser hair removal, your body hair is removed in six to eight treatments and is pain-free and permanent! Check out our IPL laser hair removal page for pricing, which starts at £40. But check out social media for our special full-body offer of £150 per session. That's right! Only £150 to treat all the hair on your body, which is hard to beat!

We hope you book in with us in the coming months for these feel-good treatments. Take a look at what our happy clients have to say about us: testimonials page.
