We’re now officially in the winter months, which means that our skin is in need of a little extra TLC to stay healthy, nourished and brimming with life.

Believe it or not, male waxing has become extremely popular recently and is most common over the summer and holiday seasons. The most booked in male waxing is on the chest and back, which are the two areas that men with particularly hairy bodies tend to feel the most self-conscious about.
One of the main reasons men tend to be put off waxing hair is because of its association with pain. The pain level will significantly depend on several things, such as whether the hair is sparse, if it is thick, whether it has been waxed before and your pain threshold. For this reason, it may be more painful for one client than for another. The critical point to remember is that the more often you get it waxed, not only will you get used to the sensation, but the hair will start to thin, making it less painful with every appointment.
In general, waxing hair will provide you with a smooth surface for around six weeks, and the more you wax the area, the longer you can enjoy hairless skin! Some of the other many benefits of waxing include the following:
- An even finish
- Longer-lasting results
- Reduces painful ingrown hairs
- Weakens hair
- No razor burn
- Various waxes to suit multiple skin types
After having waxing completed by our professional team, make sure that you do not apply moisturiser to the treated area, avoid hot showers or baths and have sun exposure for around 24 hours. You may also want to wear cotton clothing over the area being treated to avoid any uncomfortable friction. For more information on how to treat the skin after waxing, please take a look at Healthline’s advice.
For those that are not keen on arranging a waxing appointment every six weeks, but would still like to take advantage of hair removal solutions that last more than a day or two, then laser hair removal is the perfect solution for you. Unlike other hair removal solutions, laser hair removal is the most effective for long-term results and has become one of our most popular treatments among women and men in recent years. For men, laser hair removal can be complete on most areas of your choosing, making it ideal for those looking for a more permanent removal on the chest or back area, for example.
Laser hair removal works by applying a laser onto the area, emitting light into the skin and absorbing the pigment causing it to damage the hair follicle and delay further growth. The number of sessions you require will depend on several things, such as the thickness of your hair and the contrast of colour from your skin to the hair follicle. For example, those with light skin and hair will likely require more sessions for the laser to target the pigment than those with light skin and dark hair.
Much like waxing, there is a stigma around the pain associated with laser hair removal. However, while uncomfortable, laser hair removal is likely to be significantly less painful than waxing and provides longer-lasting results. Most clients find that they can get used to the uncomfortable feeling of laser hair removal in no time, and in our opinion, the pain is well worth the 12 months of smooth and hairless skin.
If you would like to consider laser hair removal in Northampton, then why not book in for a consultation with our team? Our team are highly experienced in all treatments, providing you with the knowledge and advice you require to make an informed decision. We would also advise taking a look at Shape’s article for information on what to expect from laser hair removal for a better understanding before your consultation.
Laser hair removal has similar benefits to waxing, but the results can last a lot longer, and you can benefit from smooth skin without the need for constant attention.
- Longest hair removal solution
- Precise targeting
- Fast treatment
- Saves money and time
- No more ingrown hairs
- Improves skin by minimising irritation
After laser hair removal, you can expect slight redness if your skin is sensitive, and if this is uncomfortable, applying some ice to the area should help reduce the redness. In terms of aftercare, all you will need to do is make sure that you follow the same advice for waxing; no sun exposure and no hot water or lotion for 24 hours.
Something that often gets left behind when thinking about beauty treatments for men is facials. These are just as important for men and should be booked for a treat every month. There is now a selection of men’s skin treatments that you can choose from depending on the results you wish to have. For example, the CBD facial treatment helps to relax you while it works to cleanse and detox the skin. This is perfect over the winter period when your skin is exposed to harsh weather conditions. It can provide you with the youthful glow you need for that little pick-me-up.
Another fan favourite facial here at New You is the laser carbon peel, which helps to clear pores and exfoliate the skin to give you the boost you’re looking for after the winter. Laser carbon peel works by applying a carbon lotion to the skin and then using a laser to break down the carbon into fine particles. This process helps to remove dead skin, excess oils and impurities, all of which can cause breakouts and clogged pores. Our professional laser carbon peel in Northampton is a sought-after solution for many of our male clients and is the perfect opportunity to treat yourself and your skin to a much-needed nourishing.
Other facial treatments that can also help to cleanse the skin and provide you with a youthful glow include the following:
Whether you are looking for a relaxing CBD facial or dermaplaning in Northampton, why not give our team a call to book your treatment?
Each facial will offer different results and its own host of benefits; however, most facials will come alongside the following benefits:
- Reduces stress
- Gives your skin a deep clean
- Rejuvenates the skin
- Helps with ageing and fine lines
- Improves circulation
- Can help to treat acne
- Exfoliates the skin
- Some can tighten the skin
You may wish to choose a facial depending on the issues you are having with your skin, such as breakouts or under-eye bags. If you are unsure about which treatment is right for you, then Skin Kraft has a handy article on how to find the perfect facial for your skin type.
A common issue that causes many men to feel self-conscious is hair loss, particularly for a young man. However, there is a very easy and cost-effective solution to this issue; our scalp micro-pigmentation in Northampton. This is where our professional team will apply temporary ink to your scalp, which can give the appearance of stubble. The reason this is the perfect solution for hair loss is that you can choose to have the whole area treated, or you can choose to have sections treated to give the appearance of thicker hair. Not only this but the pigment’s colour can also be tailored to your natural hair colour, whether you require a darker or lighter tone.
Many of our clients are concerned about whether the treatment is permanent or painful. Scalp micro-pigmentation is not a permanent solution, and you will require to have it reapplied every 1-3 years, depending on how well you care for the area. When applied, clients can expect a sensation similar to applying needle pressure to the surface of the skin, and while uncomfortable, it is not necessarily painful. If you’re interested in our scalp micro pigmentation treatment in Northampton, then feel free to book a consultation now!
The most important benefit of scalp micro-pigmentation is that it can give you the confidence you have been looking for and lasts for a long time before you require a top-up. Other benefits include:
- Safe solution
- More affordable than other alternatives
- Fairly quick treatment
- Requires little maintenance
- Looks realistic
Unwanted tattoos can have a dramatic effect on your confidence, especially if they are on show. Luckily, there is one way in which you are able to wind back time and remove an unwanted tattoo that you no longer love.
You can easily remove ink from the skin through professional laser tattoo removal without causing significant scarring or damage. This treatment can be completed on most tattoos, and the darker the tattoo, the easier it is to remove. The reason for this is that, much like laser hair removal, the laser used for tattoo removal targets the pigment to disperse the ink in the skin, causing it to break down.
Depending on the size of the tattoo and the colours, you may need a fair few sessions in order to fully remove the pigment.
However, when booking this treatment, you will have a consultation with our professional team, who will walk you through everything you need to know before making your decision, including the number of sessions they believe you will need. In terms of pain, many clients will compare it to having the tattoo applied as it tends to feel like a small sharp sensation that you get used to over time.
If you are unsure about the procedure and you like to know more, then Tattooaholic has a detailed guide on what to expect. Alternatively, please feel free to speak with our specialist team about our laser tattoo removal in Northampton. Our team can help you to arrange a consultation to speak with a specialist, who will inform you of the process and whether you are right for the treatment.
One of the main advantages of having your tattoo removed is that it offers a permanent solution to removing an unwanted piece of art. Other benefits of this treatment include the following:
- Less risk of scarring
- You can choose to remove sections of a tattoo
- Most clients are suitable
- Minimal recovery time
We can all feel a little self-conscious when it comes to our weight, especially when we try dieting and exercising but can’t seem to shift those last few pounds. Luckily, there is now a cost-effective and non-surgical solution to reducing fat in areas of your choosing, such as your legs or waistline. In fact, our Cryolipolysis fat freezing treatment can last under an hour, giving you the confidence to wear your summer clothing without worrying about unwanted areas of fat.
Our fat freezing in Northampton works by using an advanced device to target fat cells, causing them to die, and once dead; they will naturally be passed through the body. This makes a cost-effective and relatively pain-free alternative to surgical procedures such as liposuction, as it does not require any of the skin to be cut. The procedure also makes it less likely for you to experience any side effects, and you will not need to take time out of work for recovery unless you choose to.
You will be surprised and pleased to know that there are multiple benefits to having fat-freezing treatments, especially when choosing this treatment over its weight-loss alternatives. Just some of the fantastic benefits that you can take advantage of include the following:
- Non-surgical treatment
- Low risks to the procedure
- You will not be sedated
- Takes under an hour
- More than one area of the body can be treated during one appointment
- Can instantly go back to day-to-day life
- No nerve-fibre, blood vessel or muscle damage
- Fat cells that are damaged will be permanently removed
This non-surgical treatment is excellent in dissolving fat cells and destroying them permanently, meaning you have your desired look for as long as possible! The procedure involves injecting a specially formed solution into the fat pockets, naturally removing the fatty tissue. It works to contour your body, so it is not a weight loss solution and is suitable for small areas of skin such as a double chin, back fat, and love handles.
Some clients may be worried about the injection procedure; however, they have not been described as painful, just a little uncomfortable. Our team welcome you to apply numbing cream to help you around half an hour before the treatment! There is also no downtime after the treatment; you may only experience mild bruising, irritation and redness afterwards; however, this will disperse after a few days.
If you wish to have this treatment, book a consultation so our team can assess whether you are suitable for it or not. If you are, the treatment can be carried out on the same day as your consultation because it is a quick and easy procedure!
Our specialists in fat dissolving in Northampton offer a bundle deal which helps you save money! You can book up to 6 areas, reducing 30% off your treatment!
Although not a weight loss solution, there are many benefits to fat-dissolving injections, such as:

- Mild side effects
Non-invasive and non-surgical, this treatment is ideal for men who want to shape their bodies and lose their pockets of fat that are tricky to get rid of even after losing weight.

The sessions at our beauty clinic in Northampton last for only 30 minutes and are a safe procedure with little to no pain; the machine can also be tailored to your comfort level to ensure you feel secure and comfortable the whole time! Afterwards, there is no downtime, meaning you can get in and out as quickly as possible without disrupting your day!
Velashape uses a suction device to bring the skin closer to the machine so that the energy source can easily reach under the skin and combines this with a massage function that helps relax and stretch the skin. The infrared light and bi-polar radio frequency heat the skin and tighten the tissue underneath.
With its many benefits, this treatment is 100% recommended for those that already lead a healthy lifestyle and want to reduce smaller pockets of fat! The benefits include:
