Hair Removal



Super Hair Removal is the latest technology for the removal of unwanted hair. Safe and Pain Free, a S.H.R. treatment gently heats up the target hair follicle to cause terminal damage and prevent hair re-growth. Super fast and efficient, a S.H.R. treatment is concluded in a matter of minutes by a trained professional.


E- motion represents a breakthrough in the delivery method by sweeping the applicator repeatedly over the treatment area ensuring full coverage while simultaneously cooling the skin surface – preventing superfcial burns and allowing for a pain-free, yet highly effective and fast hair removal.


S.H.R. has been proven in clinical studies as the safest method of light based hair reduction for all skin types, including dark skin whereby melanin is exponentially more sensitive to the heat used in light based treatments. Hair follicles are damaged by repetitive short and gentle energy pulses, these pulses minimize the risk of burning to the skin, as it is the heat build-up which raises the temperature of the dermis to the level needed for preventing hair growth.


Rather than exposing the hair follicle to a single high-energy pulse which can cause trauma to skin with a high melanin count, S.H.R. gradually heats the skin until the required heat energy is delivered to the hair follicle. This makes S.H.R. the safest hair reduction option for dark skinned patients and most effective option for fair haired patients.


S.H.R. affects the melanin of the skin using a unique method, allowing the procedure to be performed anytime of the year as well as on tanned skin.


During S.H.R. treatment, energy is applied over a large area – not just the region of the hair follicle. Thee- motion technique collectively heats up and damages the hair follicles within the large area, ensuring full coverage and dramatically improving treatment times and results.


Depending on the size of the area to be treated, the time varies from 5 to 30 minutes: 15 for a facial treatment and about 30 minutes both legs. Up to 3 x faster that traditional laser or IPL


6 treatments are usually necessary.


All treatments are carried out by fully trained, approved Cosmedico Medical professionals.

Beauty and Wellness salons provide a wide range of treatments for aging skin, stretch marks, rosacea, excess body hair, and other common problems. However, only a few actually work. The Ecolite IPL Technology has emerged as one of the most popular hair removal treatments on the market. This cutting-edge system is used by over 2,000 experts in 24 countries. It not only removes excess hair but also rejuvenates the skin and improves its appearance. The Ecolite is clinically proven to give up to 97% hair reduction.


It works by producing a high intensity flash of light that is absorbed by melanin, the skin pigment. The heating inhibits skin cells’ ability to grow new hairs and helps reduce dark spots. As the epidermis renews itself, the hair will fall out within one to three weeks after treatment.


The Ecolite IPL is a quick, safe way to get rid of body hair and treat certain skin disorders. It’s particularly effective for rosacea, spider veins, age spots, and sun-damaged skin. Most clients notice visible improvements in skin appearance after just three or four sessions. Compared to standard laser treatments, Ecolite IPL works faster and provides longer lasting results.

This new technology is widely used for skin rejuvenation and permanent hair removal. Unlike other treatments, it causes no pain or discomfort. The Ecolite can be used on legs, bikini area, underarm, upper lip, chin, forearms, and even on the face. Men can use it too. This device will remove the hair on your chest or back while making your skin look younger.


Patients should avoid tanning for 1 month ahead of treatment and immediately after treatment the skin is particularly sensitive to UV light and strong sunlight should be avoided for 4-5 days.


The number of treatments needed depends on the targeted area, skin type, and skin colour. Most people require about six sessions to get rid of excess body hair.

With the Ecolite IPL, shaving, waxing, and plucking will be just a bad memory. This revolutionary system was designed for pain-free hair removal and can be safely used on all skin types.

The number of treatments needed depends on the targeted area, skin type, and skin colour. Most people require about six sessions to get rid of excess body hair.

Another advantage of the Ecolite IPL is its ability to target larger areas, so fewer sessions are needed to obtain visible results. Additionally, this device uses an entire waveband, while standard lasers emit light with one specific wavelength. Why not try it yourself? The benefits are immediate!

Tired of shaving your hair once every few days? Want to have smooth, silky skin? Electrolysis might be exactly what you need! It’s the only FDA-approved treatment for permanent hair removal. Compared to other treatments, it has fewer side effects and provides lasting results. The Apilus, features over 10 different treatment options and 1080 programs for all skin types and colours.


Electrolysis is one of the oldest and most popular hair removal methods available. It has a proven track record of success that spans over 140 years. Unlike laser treatments, it targets the hair follicle, not the hair pigment. This makes it safe and effective for all types of skin.

The Apilus uses heat energy to destroy the growth centre of the hair. This device can be used on the thighs, legs, abdomen, breasts, face, and eyebrows to remove excess hair. It has no side effects other than a temporary reddening of the skin. There is no risk of burning, irritation, pain, or scarring.


Electrolysis is the only treatment that removes unwanted body hair forever. All other methods can only claim permanent reduction. Less than seven percent of people who choose this procedure experience some re-growth of hair. Its safety and convenience shouldn’t be overlooked either. With electrolysis, there’s no need to worry about bumps, ingrown hairs, or irritation.

The Apilus can be safely used on delicate areas, such as underarms and face. It’s also an excellent choice for people with trichiasis (misdirected eyelashes) as well as for those who need permanent eyebrow shaping. The device itself is fast and effective, and can remove all types of hair.

The total number of sessions required will vary from one person to another. In general, it depends on the area that is being treated. Most clients need weekly sessions to get rid of excess hair. Once the hair is removed completely, no additional treatments will be needed. A typical session lasts for 15 to 60 minutes.

In the long run, electrolysis can save you a fortune. Temporary hair removal methods involve ongoing costs, while this technology requires a one time investment. Its results last forever.


  • Avoid soap, anti perspirant, bath additives, perfumed products or make up.
  • Do not sunbathe or have any other heat treatments before or after treatment.
  • Avoid tight and restrictive clothing on body area’s that have been treated.

Hair Removal


At Body Matters London we offer permanent to semi permanent methods of hair removal such as Electolysis, IPL and Epil Pro, however many prefer the ease and convenience of a quick wax without wanting to engage in a controlled program of hair removal. Waxing is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to remove excess hair. So whether you would like a Bikini wax aBrazillian or a Full body wax, you will be cared for with one of our highly trained therapists.


Here the wax is spread thinly over the area to be treated. A paper strip is then placed over the wax, pressed firmly and swiped against the direction of the hair growth. This removes the wax and the hair from the root. The advantage of a warm wax is that the heat can make the process comfortable as it dilates the pores so the hairs can be removed with less resistance. You can decide on the size of the area you want to wax from the miniscule such as an upper lip to the whole body.


Your skin will be temporarily sensitised after waxing. These recommendations should be followed for 24 hours or until the skin returns to normal

Hair Removal


Threading is possibly the quickest and easiest way to remove unwanted hair from the face. Depending on the area this can be done in as little as 5 minutes. It involves using a thin thread to remove individual or strands of hair from a particular area.

Similar to waxing in that the hair is pulled from the root, this method of hair removal is not messy does not involve wax and is highly targeted in that you can target individual hairs as opposed to sections with waxing.

Women tend have their upper lip, eyebrowsor entire face threaded whilst men will use it to shape parts of their beard, excess hair on their ears or between their eyebrows.

The effects of threading can last anywhere from 2 -4 weeks.


Clients are advised to avoid washing their face with water of a very high temperature. Often soothing creams or talcum powder can be applied onto the skin in order to cool it down. Clients may find that the area will appear red for several minutes after treatment. In majority of cases the redness will die down in up to 20 minutes.


There are no side effects with the treatment as it is a non-evasive treatment. However, there is a possibility that the thread may cause a cut to appear on the skin. But that happens either if an untrained person does it, or if the skin is too thin or sensitive.

  • Don’t use perfumed lotions, soaps scrubs or make up on the area.
  • Don’t not preceed waxing with any other heat treatment including hot baths.
  • Avoid touching or scratching the area.
  • Do not apply specialised afterwax lotion or antiseptic cream regularly to the area to soothe and maintain hygiene.
  • Avoid tight or restrictive clothing.
  • Avoid exposing the area to UVA light either direct sunlight or sunbeds.
  • Avoid talcum powder, anti perspirant or deodrants of any kind.

Environ Ionzyme DF machine

The Ionzyme DF machine created by plastic surgeon Dr Des Fernandes provides facial treatments which are at the very forefront of scientific skin care. This is one of the most effective treatments in the world today for enhancing the penetration of high doses of vitamins into the skin.

Happi Magazine reports the DF Facial is quickly becoming a favorite among Hollywood’s elite, including Grey’s Anatomy’s Ellen Pompeo, among others.

It is suitable for even the most delicate of complexions, as a highly effective skin nurturing facial, or as a course of intensive treatments for concerns such as mature, sun-damaged, lined, photo-aged, pigmented scarred skin along with stretch marks. The treatments help to stimulate thickening of the skin, improve collagen and elastin levels, reduce hyper-pigmentation and increase hydration.

Specific Environ products used in these treatments contain the optimum strengths of vitamin A and C plus additional growth factors. To enhance the penetration of these products through the skin providing better penetration of the active vitamins and essential factors into the skin. This technique is crucial because skin has a natural, waterproof barrier that hinders the penetrations of vitamins. The Ionzyme DF Machine manages to overcome this resistance with two tried and tested methods:

Iontophoresis- involves the use of an electrical current to facilitate greater penetration of vitamins into the skin.

Sonophoresis- involves the use of sound waves to transport vitamin molecules through the skin.

Iontophoresis is used for relatively large surface areas such as the face and neck, whereas Sonophoresis is used on limited areas such as the upper lip and the concentration of character lines around the eyes, on scar tissue and on pigmentation marks. Both methods can be combined, where necessary, for intensive treatments. It is also useful for reducing pore size, evening skin tone, tightening, lifting and brightening your skin, while providing an overall healthier appearance.


Active Vitamin Facial

This Facial treatment utilises the most active forms of Vitamin A and C to penetrate into the deepest layers thus stimulating, hydrating and nourishing it. The Active Vitamin Treatment will leave your skin looking fresh and radiant.

The treatment is tailored to individual skin conditions and is suitable for all skin types including:-

  • Dry Skin.
  • Pigmentation.
  • Oily/Combination Skin.
  • Scarring.

For optimum results 1 treatment is recommended every 2 weeks {a course of 24} followed by monthly maintenance treatments.


Collagen power facial

As we get older, key factors that keep our skin young and smooth decline, such as collagen and elastin. These are affected by internal and external factors such as sun exposure, smoking, diet, toxins etc. Just 1% annual decline in collagen levels causes a loss of skin strength and promotes the appearance of wrinkles. While the process of ageing is natural, the introduction of an effective skincare regime, can help to minimise the appearance and longer term effects.

This peptide-packed facial helps to boost collagen, soften fine lines and tighten lax skin, resulting in a more youthful appearance. Ideal for targeting mature or photo-damaged complexions.

The treatment uses gentle soundwaves to drive a special nutrient packed serum deep into the lower layers of the skin.

The formula contains a unique combination of Vitamins and anti oxidantsto give the skin a plumper, more radiant appearance.


  • Creates plumper, radiant skin
  • Softens fine lines
  • Tightens lax skin
  • Refines uneven texture
  • Deeply hydrates
  • Creates a more youthful appearance

Collagen Stimulation Therapy TM

Pioneering South African plastic surgeon and founder of Environ skincare Dr Des Fernandes developed the process of pricking the skin with multiple tiny needles to stimulate collagen production without causing any damage to the epidermis. The treatment is creating dramatic results and is now available at Body Matters London. Unlike laser or deep peeling treatments, this treatment does not work by damaging skin to force new collagen tissue. It is also the first treatment that has been shown to create fresh elastin in addition to collagen.

The rejuvenating treatment is designed to be used on all parts of the face and body to improve the appearance of wrinkles, shallow acne scarring, lax skin, slack jawline contours and stretch marks.The Environ tool, which incorporates multiple ultra-fine surgical steel 1mm long needles, is rolled repeatedly in different directions across the treatment area to create minute channels which breach the dermis. These temporary tiny needle punctures stimulate the skin’s natural healing response. This induces numerous growth factors and healing mechanisms to produce new collagen and elastin in the subsequent days, without any damage to the overlying epidermis.Clients can return to work the day after treatment with no outward signs other than flushed skin, similar to the appearance of mild sunburn. By penetrating only to a depth of 1mm, the risk of bruising and swelling is minimal. The effects of the procedure are enhanced by preparing the skin with Environ’s vitamin A and C topical products prior to the treatment course – and continuing use thereafter, to further promote healthy growth factors, collagen and elastin.

For best results, a series of six Collagen Stimulation Therapy™ treatments should be done at intervals between one week and one month, depending on time and budget available. The cost is around £200-300 per treatment including the cost of the roller which is used and re-used exclusively for each individual.

The procedure helps restore the tightness of the skin and can delay or avoid the need for a face-lift or brow lift, and remarkable results have been achieved on slack underarm skin, with Environ vitamin A and C homecare used to maintain results over long periods. It thickens and rejuvenates the skin, softens fine lines, restores elasticity, reduces pigmentation marks, stretch marks and scars. It also diminishes the appearance dilated blood vessels. Thin skin can be treated and because the epidermis is perfectly preserved and healing is rapid, there is no sun sensitivity afterwards by contrast with laser, dermabrasion and deep peels.

On-going skin care and needling trials have been run at the University of Cape Town, South Africa, and at the University of Hannover, Germany, with a number of studies completed which prove the method’s efficacy.

(For optimum results 1 treatment is recommended every 2 weeks {a course of 24} followed by 6 -8 week maintenance treatments)


Environ Cool Peel

This revolutionary approach to peeling achieves incredible results without damaging the skin. Low strength Lactic Acid is used to reduce the skin’s PH and trigger the release of growth factors, which creates tighter, smoother skin. It destroys bacteria, boosts hydration and removes the build-up of dead skin cells, helping to decongest the surface and smooth its texture. The Cool Peel is ideal for clients with lines and wrinkles, rough or problem skin, sun damage and Rosacea.

(For optimum results 1 treatment is recommended every 2 weeks {a course of 24} followed by 6 -8 week maintenance treatments)


Environ Frown Treatment

This highly effective treatment uses a special penta-peptide serum to target frown lines and achieve dramatic results. The unique combination of active ingredients is driven deep into the skin to soften lines and reduce muscle tension in the forehead helping to prevent new lines forming.

Indian Head Massage

Indian head massage is based on the Ayurvedic system of healing which has been practised in India for over a thousand years. The aim of Indian head massage is to release the stress that has accumulated in the tissues, muscles and joints of the head, face, neck and shoulders. Each area is worked on using different techniques to re balance energy flow in the body by working on the Chakras.

The Indian Head massage can be performed with dry hands or with oils. The choice of oil depends on the clients preferences, requirements and condition.

Hot Stone Massage

Hot stone massage is a type of massage therapy that involves the use of smooth, flat, heated stones that are placed on specific points on your body. Massage therapists may also hold the stones during the massage to apply heat.

The localised heat and weight of the stones are said to improve circulation and warm tense muscles, allowing the massage therapist to apply deeper pressure.


Some people find the warmth of the hot stones to be comforting and deeply relaxing.

Hot stone massage is suited to people who tend to feel chilly. It’s also suited for people who have muscle tension but prefer a lighter massage. The heat relaxes muscles, allowing the therapist to work the muscles using lighter pressure.

Although there’s a lack of research on the benefits of hot stone massage, the therapy is often used for the same conditions as a classic massage:

The hallmark of hot stone massage is the use of the heated stones.

Basalt river rocks are typically used because they have become smooth over time from the river’s current and retain heat.

To prepare for the treatment, the therapist heats the stones in a professional massage stone heater until they are within a precise temperature range (typically between 110 and 130 degrees Fahrenheit). He or she places the stones on specific points on the back. While the points may vary depending on areas of muscle tension and the client’s health history, they are generally placed along both sides of the spine, in the palms of the hand, on the legs, or between the toes.

While many therapists use anatomy to guide the placement of the stones, some massage therapists will also place stones on points thought to energetically balance the mind and body.

The use of hot stones for healing dates back to when Native Americans warmed stones by fire and applied them to skin to ease muscle aches and pains.

Modern hot stone therapy is generally credited to Arizona massage therapist Mary Nelson, who developed LaStone Therapy, a hot stone technique integrated with therapeutic massage.

Hot stone massage has continued to evolve, with many massage therapists and spas offering their own versions of the massage.


It increases blood and lymph circulation, softens tissues, releases tension. It balances body, mind and soul. Hot Stone massage is a spiritual treatment balancing the chakras. It helps relieve headaches and migraines. It speeds up metabolism, relaxes the client, especially for people who find it difficult to relax. It opens the energy centres in the body.

Has your skin lost its glow? Does it look dull and lifeless? Then microdermabrasion might be the answer! This deep exfoliating treatment works by removing dead skin cells and stimulating collagen production. It’s perfect for aged and sun-damaged skin, dry skin, stretch marks, pigmentation, and scars.


Microdermabrasion is referred to as an instant facelift for a good reason. This pain-free, non-invasive treatment can turn back the clock and restore skin glow. It not only eliminates dead skin cells but also promotes new cell growth and evens out your complexion. The result is fresher, youthful skin with a silky touch and smooth texture.

This procedure is ideal for both young and mature skin. It can be used on the face as well on the hands, knees, chest, neck, arms, and other areas. Unlike other treatments, it causes no scarring or skin color changes. Its benefits are confirmed by science. Dermatologists worldwide recommend this treatment to those with uneven skin tone, melasma, age spots, and dull skin.


Microdermabrasion uses diamond flakes or exfoliating crystals to gently remove the top layer of dead skin cells. At the same time, it increases collagen production and improves blood flow. After just one session, your skin will look and feel smoother. Regular treatments may help reduce blemishes, fine lines, wrinkles, clogged pores, blackheads, and other skin imperfections.

This exfoliating treatment works on all skin types and colours. The perfect candidates for microdermabrasion are people who have minor skin conditions, such as acne, rosacea, and dark spots. By removing dead cells, microdermabrasion allows moisturizing anti-aging creams to penetrate the skin more easily.


The procedure can be done with a variety of devices, such as the popular Bioskin. This innovative machine combines high-tech infrared laser, “Abralase” skin exfoliation, and ultrasound wave to stimulate blood flow and exfoliate dead cells.

Bioskin has been also shown to improve lymphatic and vascular circulation, making it ideal for stretch marks and dull skin. The stream of crystals is constant and progressive, which helps prevent scarring.

A typical treatment lasts for about 30 minutes, so you can try it during lunch break or whenever you have some free time. In general, it’s recommended to have a minimum of six treatments.

This painless, “lunch hour” treatment can take years off your face within minutes. With microdermabrasion, your complexion will look more vibrant and energized instantly.

Mesotherapy has emerged as one of the best treatments for skin rejuvenation. Developed in the ’50s, this cosmetic procedure is designed for dry, lifeless skin. It promises Botox-like results, but without the side effects. If you dislike the idea of scary facial fillers, mesotherapy is the way to go. Let’s see what makes it so great and whether or not it’s right for you!


Mesotherapy was initially designed for treating injuries and skin conditions. During a typical session, the therapist uses micro-injections to deliver tiny “medicinal bullets” into the mesoderm. These can include vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and amino acids that are required for healthy skin. These nutrients help improve dull, tired looking skin, rejuvenate your complexion, and boost collagen levels.

The beneficial effects of mesotherapy are well-documented. This treatment uses a cocktail of vitamins and natural plant extracts to restore skin glow and reverse aging. Just a few sessions are enough to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The best part is that it’s completely painless!


Mesotherapy is recommended to men and women looking to achieve a flawless complexion and turn back the clock. The devices used during mesotherapy help remove impurities from the lower layers of your skin and allow for deeper cleaning. It’s a safe, painless alternative to Botox injections and delivers immediate results. The procedure has five steps, including:

  • Diamond tip abrasion, here the therapist scrapes away scar tissue and dead skin cells without the use of laser or chemicals
  • Thermotherapy, which prepares your skin for treatment
  • Ultrasound, which stimulates the skin tissue and boosts collagen production
  • Cryotherapy, which closes the pores to retain the nutrients into your skin
  • Aesthetic mesotherapy, which helps deliver nutrients into the deepest layers of the skin. Substances used include vitamin c, co-enzyme cofactors, alpha lipoic acid, l-arginine, yohimbe, diethylaminoethanol, and more.

Most clients require eight to 14 sessions for total skin rejuvenation. The results last for up to eight months. This procedure appears to be particularly effective for aging skin, pigmentation problems, facial sculpting, and the reduction of double chin. It’s also a great choice for those with fat or flabby cheeks, eye bags, or uneven skin tone.

With mesotherapy, your skin will look younger and revitalised. For optimum results apply a moisturizing cream after treatment. A few weeks from now on, you’ll have fewer wrinkles and skin imperfections, feel more confident, and look healthier.

Is acne ruining your life? Want to get rid of scars, enlarged pores, and dark spots? Before popping pills, try a natural treatment like Oxypeel! This innovative peeling system was developed in the UK. Unlike standard treatments, it uses oxygen therapy to reduce acne, scarring, and rosacea. Oxypeel is a safe, natural alternative to chemical peeling and medications. The results are immediate.


This revolutionary peeling treatment hydrates and exfoliates your skin within minutes. There is no pain, no downtime, and no discomfort. Oxypeel works by infusing water and oxygen into the skin. Basically, it exfoliates the skin’s surface, removing dead cells, bacteria, and dirt buildup.

Oxypeel dislodges damaged skin cells and regulates oil production, which helps reduce acne and pigmentation. Acne occurs when sebum mixes with dead cells, clogging your pores. Thus, it’s essential to keep your skin clean and prevent excess sebum.

This line of products restores the skin’s natural balance, leaving it soft and smooth. It’s ideal for all skin types and has no adverse effects. All you need is a microjet hand piece and your favorite Oxypeel product. Depending on your needs, you can use the Oxypeel Alkaline mask, the Revitale mask, or the Enzyme mask.


When used regularly, Oxypeel can take years off your face and give you baby soft skin. It not only reduces excess sebum but also moisturizes your skin and balances its pH levels. Additionally, it protects it from future sun damage and removes waste matter from your cells. The burst of fresh oxygen improves circulation to the subdermal and epidermal levels.

By removing bacteria on the skin surface, Oxypeel allows your skin to heal itself and build new cells. Most people report dramatic results after just a few sessions. This cutting-edge treatment also reduces the effects of stress on your skin, improves cell metabolism, and speeds up healing from burns, inflammation, and surgery. Compared to a chemical peel, it’s painless and works faster.


Oxypeel is particularly helpful for people with active and pustular acne, sun-damaged skin, soft scarring, uneven skin tone, and keloid scars. It can be also used by those with tight or pitted skin. If you have age spots, dark spots, or uneven skin tone, look no further! With Oxypeel, your complexion will regain its glow and become more even.
