Before and after photos

Although a tattoo may seem the right thing to do at the time, time and feelings can change so the team at Advance can help you to get it removed. This laser treatment sends short bursts of energy into the ink pigments of the tattoo and breaks up the particles and the ink, enabling your immune system to safely remove the ink.

There is no set amount of sessions that are needed as everyone is different. Indian ink is removed the easiest followed by amateur tattoos. If you have a professional tattoo these do take the longest to come off and takes around 6 sessions and upwards.

To avoid scarring it is recommended that you keep your skin hydrated by regularly moisturising and do not pick any scabs. The skin is the largest organ of the body and you need to look after it.

Hair removal

advanceFed up of shaving or waxing? Let the team at Advance clinic take away the chore by booking in for laser hair removal. The highly experienced nurses provide a fast, non-invasive hair removal treatment to get rid of any unwanted hair.

Normally six to eight treatment sessions are needed to provide a permanent reduction of hair growth. The gap between sessions is normally between 4 – 6 weeks. The number of hair removal sessions depends on various factors, including where the hair is, how thick it is and also your particular skin type and hair colour.

The initial consultation

If laser hair removal is something which is of interest to you the next step is to pop into their clinic within Falkirk Business Hub for a consultation. At this appointment you will be able to meet with one of the trained laser nurses and ask any questions you might have and what you wish to achieve from the hair removal treatments.

The nurse will determine your skin type and the kind of hair you have to ensure the laser is right for you. Next, the nurse will create a tailored treatment programme specifically to your needs.

If you decide to go ahead with the treatment, the nurses can book you in for your first appointment.

Prices

A full price list of their services can be found here, with prices starting from £35 for tattoo removal and £20 for hair removal.

Tenant Tuesday: Renewable Heat

Tenant Tuesday

renewable logoThis weeks Tenant Tuesday features Renewable Heat, an installer of renewable heating systems offering both Air source and Ground source heating systems.

They operate all around Scotland, but mainly in the central belt.

What are the benefits of a renewable heating system?

1. These kinds of systems save you money on heating bills as you will be protected against future oil and gas prices.

2. It is clean and environmentally friendly

Services

renewable vanAir source

Air source renewable energy heating pumps heat homes by extracting heat from the air and transferring it into the building. It works similarly to a fridge but in reverse with an efficient system supplying more energy that it consumes.

Ground source

These kind of heat pumps heat homes by extracting naturally occurring heat from the ground, through pipes, and transferring in into the house. The pumps transfer heat from the liquid in the pipes through a process of evaporation, which can case great savings on energy costs.

Underfloor heating

This one you might have heard of! This used pumps and warm water under the floor to make the heat. The heat is a lot more consistent than you would get from a radiator as since the heat is concentrated near the ground, energy will not be wasted heating air next to the ceiling. This type of system can be paired with an Air and/or Ground source pump.

The team
