IMG_5668M is for migraine relief, so many individuals suffer with this sometimes debilitating condition, unless you have experienced a migraine many don’t have much sympathy feeling it’s only a worse version of a headache that could go with an aspirin! A number of factors may trigger migraines, including hormonal changes in women due to fluctuations in oestrogen . Foods like cheese, processed or salty foods, additives, drinks, stress , sensory stimulations, bright lights, loud atmospheres. In recent years many individuals respond very well to muscle relaxing injections into the frown, scalp and base of neck.

N – is for nose reshaping, rhinoplasty is a very popular surgical procedure, however in recent years some individuals have been able to make slight changes to their noses with very small about of dermal fillers. I have got great results for people who have a slight bump or have a slight wonky appearance to the nose straight on, without going through unnecessary surgery.

O- optometrist check up, During a comprehensive eye exam, your eye doctor does much more than just determine your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses. He or she will also check your eyes for common eye diseases, assess how your eyes work together as a team and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health. Make your appointment today as it could make significant changes without you even realising there was a problem.

P is for pulsed light treatments, an excellent way of reducing redness to the face, exposure to the cold climate , excessive alcohol consumption over the winter period can play havoc with the skin. A course of pulsed light treatments helps to break down the red pigment and broken capillaries giving you a more even complexion.

Q- q10 and vitamin c topical cream for obaji is a great non aggressive but medical strength boost for the skin. The combination of the two helps as it is a power antioxidant, energies the skin, stimulates cell turnover, promotes collagen and healing Nd also is a natural skin brighter to help discolouration.

R- rough skin in the winter, generally people complain of rough skin to their elbows and knees and rough patches to the backs of the arms and face. Using washes or creams that contain glycolic acid can help to peel off this rough texture , or try in clinic peeling for a quick and easy solution.

S Is for skin product swap – In the same way we switch to warmer clothes in the winter, our skincare regime needs a few tweaks too – remember that colder air is drier air. “Consider using a serum or oil underneath your day or night cream for extra moisture,” says skin expert, Jo Carey. “Unless you’ve got especially sensitive skin, exfoliate twice a week to remove any dry skin, but always follow with a moisturiser. Dead skin cells can’t absorb moisture so it’s important to remove them.” Sensitive skin is even more prone to irritation in winter so look for products free from colourants, fragrance and irritants

T one up your body with resistance bands, a simple and effective home work out that can really get results for those with very little time, simple routines can help banish bingo wings and help you get a flatter stomach.

Under arm sweating or hyperhydrosis can be a embarrassing condition, muscle relaxing injections can work very well to this area and helps reduce excessive sweating , allowing individuals to wear the types of clothes they want.

V is for veins, simple broken capillaries to the facial area can be treated with diathermy or lasers, try to avoid activities that cause vasodilation like extremes of temperatures and not using daily SPF protection. Leg veins are treated more successfully with high powered lasers or surgical techniques to remove varicose veins.

W Is for water – It’s incredibly important to get plenty of liquid during the winter months “With the central heating blasting, air can get hot and dry, and hydration levels can drop fast. , the body’s thirst response can diminish as blood vessels constrict to keep blood and heat in the body’s core. This fools the body into thinking it’s properly hydrated when it’s not.”.

X- treme cold weather is more likely to make us suffer from aches and pains, partly due to a la k of activity gentle walk can help, but another option is to take a warm bath with salts or essential oils, whilst gently exercising your joints in the water,”

,

Y outhful treatments to naturally enhance, mesotherapy vitamin and antiageing facial injections can really boost your skin quality and treat the skin directly at the problem zones. A course of three treatments giving every two weeks can boost the skin following the winter months.

Z inc supplements or food including,Zinc is found in cells throughout the body. It helps the immune system fight off invading bacteria and viruses. The body also needs zinc to make proteins and DNA, the genetic material in all cells. During pregnancy, infancy, and childhood, the body needs zinc to grow and develop properly

Top 10 High Zinc Foods

1) Grass-fed Beef

2) Kefir or Yogurt

3) Lamb

5) Pumpkin seeds

6) Cashews

7) Cocoa powder

A-Z of Health and Beauty Tips 2017

Monday, January 16th, 2017

IMG_8623This. Month is all about the a-z of health and beauty tips, simple changes and positive steps can make really big changes to our skin, health and mental well being to ensure you start 2017 in the best possible way? Winter can be tough on our bodies but a few simple lifestyle changes can help us to stay healthy, happy and ready for the year ahead!

This month features A-L don’t miss next month’s m-z!
A – Anti Ageing we often assume that we have to go under the knife to look youthful, however subtle natural changes to a tired dull skin tone, using vitamin skin serums that our bespoke to your needs and wearing SPF daily even during winter will make you look more youthful and more importantly protect you from daily ageing uv rays.

B- BReak a sweat, it’s so important to exercise for your all over well being, but we often think of exercise as attending the gym, brisk walks for 20. Mins a day gives our mind and bodies the boost we need as its something most of us can do easily, if you have mobility issues then swimming is the ideal fitness choice and really helps soothe aching joints.

C- COLD CLIMATE CUISINE
If your Drawn towards stodgy comfort food in winter, You’re not alone. But there are plenty of ways to fill up with nutritious, healthy food without putting on weight. Warming stews and soups will help you get your five-a-day while seeing off hunger

D- Defying Gravity, during the ageing process we loose fat from our faces and we get loose skin and the dreaded jowling. I have devised an excellent combination approach using dermal fillers to naturally replace lost volume and using muscle relaxing injections to lift the jaw line and turkey neck,

E- Early signs of ageing ‘ , looking after your skin in your teens and early 20’s will mean you are ahead of the game as far as ant ageing goes- wearing a daily SPF like heliocare gel which is non comonegenic so won’t give you spots, helps to fight daily uv damage, dont pick your spots, invest in a good antibacterial cleanser like inspiration med prime cleanser which has a blend of glycolic and sallicylic acids to reduce inflammation, clean the skin and pores and promotes collagen boosting.

F- Fatty deposits, it’s so frustrating when you eat well and work out. Yet certain parts of your body cling on to fat and spoils your overall look. I often get clients who are slim but hold fat under there chin area, mesotherapy fat reducing injections can really help, other common areas are above the knees, love handles, bra strap line and inner thighs.

G – Good nights sleep while the run up to Christmas and New Year can be a whirlwind of late nights and early mornings, don’t forget the importance of sleep. “Make sure you get your eight hours, when you can to get a full body and mind recharge
Loving the new Fitbit watch and App that assess how well you sleep each night!

H – hair loss in women – a very distressing problem., Telogen effluvium ( shredding of hair) from fade diets, age related deterioration and early female pattern hair loss can respond well to multivitamins or specific hair supplements such as viviscal. It’s a,ways best to seek professional advice from a specialist to get the right diagnosis and treatment plan.

I- is for invest in good skin products. Please do not be fooled but extremely high priced products, instead look for brands that contain higher concentrates of the right ingredients for your specific skin concerns. Inspiration med has just launched magic spheres serums which are fabulous, or for a real bespoke serum go for Oxynergy Paris personalised serum to suit you perfectly.

J – Jasmine Tea. The scent of jasmine promotes a sense of well-being and calm. Jasmine tea, with its delicate but exotic scent, is soothing to your spirit as soon as you smell it being brewed. STRESS and u healthy skin go hand in hand , look for calming teas like chamomile and teas rich inantuoxidants like green tea. A simple and effectively daily add on that won’t break the bank.

K – keep your glow, regular mild skin peels like the Zoe Obadiah stimulator peel is a red carpet treatment in Hollywood! Exfoliate and add natural skin brighter creams and serums to your existing regime like vitamin c, co q10 and vitamin a.

L look after yourself this year, do things that make you happy and STRESS free, make a plan to keep on top of all your health needs, regularly dental check ups and hygiene appointments, mole checks , blood pressure monitoring and blood tests that can indicate deficiencies in the body. Don’t just accept things like being tired all the time, or overlook changes to skin lesions after all . Prevention is better than cure

 

 

 

HOW TO BEAT THE CHRISTMAS STRESS SHOWING ON YOUR SKIN

Friday, December 2nd, 2016

IMG_8623IMG_8624HOW TO BEAT THE CHRISTMAS STRESS SHOWING ON YOUR SKIN
This time of year we can feel the excitement building to Christmas, with parties to attend and busy shopping trips, it can leave us feeling and looking exhausted! Here are some tips and ideas to help alleviate some stress.

EAT WELL – It can be tempting to snack on foods high in sugar when the weather is colder and we want a quick energy boost. Unfortunately this will lead to increasing blood sugar levels.Remember when our levels suddenly dip again, we’re left craving another sugary pick-me-up or stimulant such as caffeine.

– Try to stick to regular meals containing healthy proteins, such as oily fish, grass-fed meats or lentils. If you feel hungry between meals reach for protein rich snacks such as homemade energy balls, houmous and vegetable sticks or simply some dried fruits and nuts and learn how to find the best painters, just for fun.

TIRED WASHED OUT COMPLEXION – All the extra stress, both at work and at home, inevitably takes its toll on one’s appearance. Lifeless dull skin, dark shadows under the eyes become even more apparent. Common symptoms including spots, psoriasis, eczema, dry skin and, if you’re
already run down, cold sores, dandruff, overtly greasy or dry hair — and even hair loss can all
affect you badly at this time of year.

STRESS AND EXHAUSTION – the temptation to reach for a pick me up in the form of a mini
Toblerone or a glass of wine. Plus it’s dark at 3.30pm, which I find leads to carb consumption.
Why does stress affect our skin so badly? Firstly, hormones. Being under pressure increases the production of cortisol, one of the functions of which is to suppress the immune system (that’s why we use hydrocortisone to stop allergic reactions).

– Cortisol can also lead to skin ageing, as it weakens the elastin and collagen structures within the skin. Hence that dull, lacklustre appearance that you get when you’ve had a succession of late nights in a row.

Hormones, too, are the culprit in stress-related hair loss. This used to be a mostly male affliction; but since we women decided, quite reasonably, that it was time for us to have a go at running things, more and more women have started losing their hair through stress. Stress results in waves of androgens, males hormones that have a deleterious effect on our hair follicles and shorten their life-cycle, initially causing thinning and eventually, over time, the death of the follicle.
-Try Aromatherapy oil baths to soothe the body and mind, massage, reflexology, reiki and
meditation can all help you to recharge.

– invest in a good eye cream to suit your skin like Inspira eye care cream, soft and luxurious feel. Invest in a good concealer to help the shadows under the eyes also.

– take vitamin D tablets every am on waking to help the blues and B12 to fight fatigue and stress.

Smile enhancement

‘SMILE ‘ verb or noun
Form ones features into a pleased, kind or amused expression, typically with the corners of the mouth turned up and the front teeth exposed.

Apart from having straighter, whiter teeth, the mouth, lips and exposure of the teeth when smiling can affect the attractiveness of a smile, there are some simple techniques that can enhance a smile and make you more confident.

Gummy smile (photos to follow – please put them next to this quote
This is a term used to describe the excessive display of the gum line when smiling, this can be
effectively treated with muscle relaxing injections, a simple four point injection taking around 10 minutes, effects can be seen 5-10 days post treatment.

Snarl lip or the ‘Elvis effect!’

This refers to the pulling of the lip on one side of the mouth due to hyperactivity of the muscles on this side, so like the gummy smile, muscle relaxing injections used on the hyper active side can stop this and give you a more even smile.

Droopy mouth corners or the ‘cheer up love look !’ ( photos to follow please put next to this quote)

When the corners of the mouth area start to fall downwards it gives the first appearance of an
unhappy or miserable mouth, due to the ageing process we lose the volume that supports this area and the integrity of the tissue becomes slack. Sugar derivative dermal fillers are an amazing way of giving gentle support to the corners and can be used around the lip border to to give a more
youthful shaped mouth area. Results can be seen almost immediately.

PERFECT SKIN 2016

june-2015

Peels are the backbone of good skincare and are often overlooked and not promoted enough, yet they can do so. Much to improve the quality of skin including the tone, texture and elasticity for all skin types. There is a peel for everyone!

Exercise regime, sit down and make a plan on how you will fit in 3 hours a week minimum to help you mange your stress, skin and health conditions, look and feel better inside and out, anything from brisk walking, sports, swimming or personal training, many people dread the gym, so make it fun and applicable to your lifestyle, work and family balance.

Refresh your skin, after the long cold winter months, our skin looses moisture quickly , skin can look dull and lifeless. The constant change of temperatures from our vessels constricting in the co.d to dilating when we go inside to the warm can cause redness, broken veins and dilated pores. Treat your skin to a moisturisers packed full of hyaluronic acid and vitamins, chooses treatments like meso glow vitamins injected into the skin , Restylane vital drop,etc, dermal roller to repair and intense pulsed light to calm red stressed skin.

Follow up all the ‘to do’ jobs, whether it’s starting a fitness, healthy eating or stop smoking regime. To getting rid of unsightly blemishes or lumps and bumps on the skin with cryotherapy treatments. It’s time for you to set your health and beauty goals

Eating to feel better is a must, it’s amazing that people still don’t link feeling better physically and mentally with what they put inside their bodies. Vitamin b12 injections can really help fight fatigue and lift your mood to get motivated. I also love mineral supplements , sometimes the quality of certain fruit and vegetables does not have the full nutrients our bodies crave so adding them to our diet can really help.

Concentrate on your main skin or health problem,
By focusing on one concern, such as wrinkles or dark spots, you’ll get the best results. Look for a treatment or product that targets your concern. There are two reasons for this:
-No product or treatment can treat all signs of skin aging.
-Using more than one anti-aging product in a few days or weeks can irritate the skin, making you look older. When using skin are products less is definitely more.

Treat the décolletage( which encompasses the neck, shoulders back and chest)and hands, ladies often neglect these two areas – which are tell tell signs of aging, I encourage my clients to extend there face and neck skincare regime to the areas also. Remember intense pulsed light, meso glow and hydrating booster vital Restylane drops are amazing. Furthermore CryoPen can help with unsightly age spots and red spots known as Campbell de Morgan.

Skin care products throw out any out of date bottles as this could be harming not helping your skin. Generally SPF protectors last a year after opening
Have realistic expectations: Exaggerated promises, such as look 10 years younger overnight or quickly reduces all signs of aging, are too good to be true. It’s important to remember that anti-aging skin care products deliver modest results. You cannot get the results of a facelift from a cream Read product labels and select a product that offers all of the following:

• Hypoallergenic (The product can still cause an allergic reaction, but there is less risk.)
Non-comedogenic or non-acnegenic (does not cause acne)

Kissable lips, treat your lips to the ultimate built in Vaseline , hyaluronic acid fillers are a fabulous way of given definition to thin weak lips, also helping dry cracked lip sufferers. In my practice the majority of clients who use fillers to help the mouth area , you would never guess, naturally enhanced.

Invest in new make up, brushes if you have had them for a long time and a good brush cleaner. I see lots of bacterial skin infections due to dirty make up brushes, especially those suffering with acne symptoms.

Night time makeover for inside and out, I know it’s boring but we all need good quality and enough sleep to repair our bodies and minds. Remember the most important time of time to help skin is before bed, as we sleep the creams, serums and repair solutions are at there best so ensure you are thorough with your regime to get the results you desire.

Post Holiday Repair Treatments and Advice

At this time of year I find a lot of patients coming to clinic wanting treatments to help reverse and heal the damage caused by sun exposure. The healthy tan has now faded and the unwanted effects on the skin are now clearly visible. It’s the prime time now to start face peels, laser and In tense pulsed light courses aswell as hydrating fillers and Mesotherapy treatments to repair, revive and bring an autumn glow to our face and body. You are noticing the crows feet have deepened through squinting in the sun and the fine lines are now showing,
Here at Perfect Skin we like to offer ‘TWEAKMENTS ‘instead of full face makeover Treatments, small changes can give you a natural and subtle enhancement, softening crows feet, hydrating the skin and lifting the corners of the mouth are small changes with maximum impact.

Pigmentation Peeling

There are lots of different peeling agents, we tailor. the right solution for you, taking into consideration your aims, lifestyle, age and skin type. Generally six sessions are needed and home creams may be recommended. Don’t forget to treat your declotege area as the chest shows the signs of a lot of skin damage as does the backs of the hands, say goodbye to unsightly age spots

Intense pulsed light

These treatments are ideal for reducing redness and brown spots caused by over exposure to the sun, it can also be used in conjunction with diathermie u to help coagulate and remove unsightly thread veins affecting the nose and cheek area, recently I have seen an increase in patients asking for treatment to the chest area where broken capillaries and red blemishes known as Campbell de Morgan spots which can spoil a skin tone but can easily be removed.

Decollate and hand renewal

Both of these areas age quickly when not looked after, and can often give a persons age away despite them treating there face and neck areas, apply your serums and creams to these areas on a daily basis, as most of us show these areas daily and expose to uv! Using treatments that help eliminate creepiness can result in a firmer and more youthful skin tissue dermal fillers like Restylane and Radiesse can really help.

post summer adjustments to facial crepiness often seen on the cheek , around the eye and the lower lateral part of the face can make people feel a lot older , here are two possible solutions-

Restylane vital is a great way of helping these lines and isle really better in patients 30 s – 50s it works by hydrating, lift and rejuvenate

Radiesse is a perfect 3:1 dermal filler which lifts, co tours and rejuvenates the face, older clients really benefit as it helps with more advanced aging of the skin, however I use it in you ger patients as a more natural wY of achieving a more defined cheek area without looking too overfilled.

(Please put this section in a box of its own as its a step by step guide – quiz type)

Proportion and harmony in the face, (title for the box)

Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder but according to various the University of Nebraska, a smaller nose and chin, along with a larger distance between the eyes and a smaller mouth width are deemed desirable traits for women. Females were proven to be seen as the fairer sex, rated more attractive by both men and women. Da Vinci himself recognised and understood the importance of measurements when he drew the famous Virtruvian man. The universally recognised number is 1.62 in natures symmetry.
So With the maths behind it, the symmetry of your face can be measured. The closer this number is to 1.62, the more beautiful it is judged to be subconsciously.

1 -The simplest measurement is the length of your face divided by the widest part of your face. The closer it is to 1.62 , the more beautiful the face is! However this is not the only consideration.

2- measure the face from the forehead hairline to a spot between the eyes, then the spot between the eyes to the bottom of the nose, p the bottom of the nose to the bottom of the chin, if al three parts are equal – again you will be deemed more beautiful.

3- Lastly, the length of an ear is equal to the length the nose, and the width of an eye is equal to the distance between the eyes.

Non surgical treatments ,can help with these ratios and proportions to make a face look more attractive, building g up a chin an relaxing it so it doesn’t curl up, building up the mouth area to give it symetry lifting a nose that tips down, maki h yes more open and wider are all clever tricks that can help you restore facial attractiveness.
I like to offer treatments that make you feel more confident, improve your self esteem and make you more attractive, afterall happy people that smile are contagious to us all ….

Common Skin Complaints

Tuesday, September 1st, 2015

Common Skin Complaints and How to Treat

Acne

Acne can affect all ages, not just teenagers, and the true cause is still a matter of debate. It occurs when oil-secreting glands in the skin get clogged and become inflamed or infected.
Despite the blockage, the glands, which are controlled by the sex hormones, carry on producing oil, resulting in a swelling and the characteristic spots – mostly on the face, shoulders, back or chest.

Treatment: The gold standard treatment for mild-to-moderate acne is combination therapy, which could include topical peeling agents, skin peels and antibiotics.

Body Odour and Underarm Sweating

Hyperhydrosis is not a temporary condition. Many people who suffer from it have suffered for many years, often from childhood or sometimes from adolescence. Hot or cold, the sweating is constant, and the impact of hyperhydrosis can be severe. Wetness and staining of clothes causes embarrassment!

Treatment: Prescribed aluminium salts applied daily to the area can help, but clients often find this too rigid and sometimes uncomfortable. Muscle relaxing injections is a very effective way of treating the condition and can last up to 6-8 months.

Cysts

Very little is known about these sac-like growths that form in the deeper layers of the skin when the lining of a hair follicle gets blocked.
They can occur almost anywhere on the body and can become inflamed, red and painful if the contents get into the surrounding skin.

Treatment: Although cysts are a nuisance, they are rarely harmful and antibiotics can be used to combat bacterial infections. However an injection of hydrocortisone to the cyst can reduce it quickly, often known as the cort shot – Hollywood stars swear by this treatment before red carpet events.

Dermatitis

One in five people will be affected by dermatitis or eczema at some time in their lives.
Anxiety and other stresses can trigger an attack, probably by weakening the normal immune system response. Avoidance tactics include showering rather than bathing, keeping the skin moist, wearing soft, smooth, cool clothing and protecting the skin from toxins.

Treatments: Steroid creams and ointments can be used to combat itching, but good Dermatologists often avoid steroid treatments as the problem may lie in a general disorder not connected directly to the skin. Looking at stress factors and topical allergy testing can be useful.

Flushing
Flushing is the result of blood vessels in the skin dilating. A wide range of causes include some drugs, various foods, hot drinks and alcohol. Hot flushes are a key symptom of the menopause.

Treatment: Avoid eating or drinking whatever triggers the flushing. HRT is an effective treatment for hot flushes and night sweats associated with the menopause. Intense Pulsed Light treatments and diathermy are a fantastic way to reduce the red vessels and breaking them down.

Hirsutism

Hirsutism is when a woman has excessive hair growth. The hair is usually thick and dark, rather than fine and fair.
What causes hirsutism?
Hirsutism is caused by an excess of male sex hormones called androgens, or an increased sensitivity to androgens. In most cases, this is caused by polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). However, in around 10% of cases there are no obvious causes.

Treatment: There is no cure for hirsutism, but there are treatments to manage the condition. Laser hair removal and electrolysis, also topical prescribed creams for the face can all help manage this condition.

Keloid Scars

These usually occur after an injury to the skin or severe acne, but can also be triggered by a scratch or shaving cut. When the skin starts to heal, something goes wrong and too much collagen gets into the scar, causing it to swell. While not dangerous, they can be painful, itchy and disfiguring.

Treatment: For severe cases surgery may be the only option, however laser and derma pen therapy can greatly reduce and improve them significantly, in the early stages of formation injectable steroids can help reduce inflammation.

Stretch Marks

The result of skin being stretched during pregnancy, weight gain or growth spurts, stretch marks are the visible red and purple signs that collagen has been damaged. As the skin recovers, it may lose normal pigmentation, resulting in the white scars associated with mature stretch marks.

Treatment: Targeted light technology can restore the pigment in white scars and laser can help red scars, derma pen and derma roller also help improve the scars to make them less obvious.image

Treating younger Skin

Beauty and Confidence Restored Naturally

 

As a society we are becoming increasingly savvy about the ageing process, how our skin changes over the years, factors that contribute to accelerating the process. We are shown advertisements on the latest cream technologies that promise to take 10 years off our appearance. The result of this now, is a drive to start the quest of eternal youth and freshness long before the facial lines and wrinkles assume their positions! However I personally do not agree with giving dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxing injections to younger individuals who don’t actually have any lines or wrinkles to start with. Younger people often make themselves look a lot older by over volumising their faces or completely freezing them.

 

‘Women in their twenties are looking for treatments before they start dermal fillers or muscle

relaxing injections to preserve the integrity of their skin – rather than reverse the damage later – prevention is better than cure!’

 

Justifying a Treatment Plan

 

Skin Needling or Derma Roller Treatments –

 

These procedures can be justified in all ages, it will help with open pores, acne scars, lines and wrinkles and help to prevent them from forming in the first place, procedures which help improve blood flow and create collagen are a popular concept.

 

Muscle Relaxing Injections –

 

A useful treatment when lines and creases start to show on the frown, forehead and crows feet. Many years ago I recall a very famous and world renowned Cosmetic Dermatologist giving a

lecture stating that ‘the best present a person can receive on their 30th birthday is muscle relaxing therapy if they wish to preserve a younger fresher appearance’ – I agreed with this at the time. However some younger individuals really overuse their upper facial muscles. Lifestyle, computer work and constantly using electronic devices has given rise to the age dropping slightly to around 25 years – the Facebook frown has landed!

 

Dermal Fillers-

 

When used correctly on the face to give a younger fresher look in faces which are showing the first signs of ageing are a useful tool. However younger people are requesting larger lips and cheek volume also. If a younger client wants lip filler to address a weak non existent top lip this can be justified as it addresses facial balance and symmetry. Making lips very large without considering the face and impact it will have on the whole facial contours can make an individual look almost caricature. Also when you look at a person you should normally be drawn to the eye area, if youare not then it’s usually because something else on the face is exaggerated. By addressing all

areas of concern at once, everything on the face matches artistically, which leads to the most

natural-looking results.

 

Peeling Agents

 

Simple, safe, non-invasive and unbelievably effective when administered correctly, they are a

fabulous route to improving the condition of your skin without the need to take time off work or play. Ideal for younger skin that tends to suffer more with blocked pores and acne like symptoms. Alpha hydroxy acid derives from sugar cane, it works by loosening the ‘glue-like’ attachments of cellular cement that is characteristic of many skin conditions such as premature ageing due to too much sun exposure and sun bed use, acne, discolouration and coarse bumpy skin texture. It helps to reduce cell build up and give a smoother, fresher skin appearance which ultimately makes your skin tone more attractive. A great way of boosting collagen also as long as SPF creams are used daily.

 

 

Mesotherapy

 

A technique widely used in France since the 1950’s. Mesotherapy is a medical procedure that is largely desired by clients who wish to improve circulation in specific areas. Helping to counteract the contributing factors that lead to sullen sagging skin and loss of fluids. Mesotherapy is the

application of a personalised cocktail of vitamins and I inject them into the areas to be treated.This helps brighten ashen skin and plumps up baggy areas, especially helpful around dark sagging eyes and the décolleté to help with fine lines and wrinkles.

 

This is ideal for younger individuals as well as older clients as a great first step into feeding the skin with essential vitamins and much needed hydrators and anti-oxidants.

What’s Ageing You?

Friday, May 22nd, 2015

imageWhat’s Ageing you? – the cause, how to prevent and how to fix!

Forehead and frown lines

The cause – repeated squinting at your laptop, phone and the television causes you to frown and overtime will deepen the line between your brows. Furthermore a dropped brow or very expressive individuals will make constant raising of the eyebrows which In turn generate deep horizontal wrinkles.

Prevention – keep up to date with your glasses or contact lens prescription so you are not straining the muscles around the orbital area. Use sun protection to stop rapid depletion of your collagen and stop smoking!

Quick fix – muscle relaxing injections are a quick and relatively pain free Way to subtly relax the muscles that causes the lines, but maintain your natural expression, looking lifted, less tired and fresher.

Surgical Fix – surgical removal of the frown muscles to lift the brow, however it is not as common these days as the injections work well.

2. Nose to Mouth folds

The cause- over the years the fat on the cheek pad starts to slide South, fat is held well the central area, this in turn causes the heavy grove or line and the natural youthful v shape becomes a down turned v , making us look older, tired and in some people quite grumpy looking!

Prevention – avoid yo yo dieting, excessive weight loss is a big factor. Also sleeping on the same side every night can make that particularly line look heavy , try to sleep on your back.

Quick fix – Hyaluronic acid fillers are a great way to lessen the depth of these lines and restore the apple volume you loose opinion your face over time, don’t be worried about the pillow faced look, when fillers are done naturally and put into where you have lost the volume they will look natural and you will look healthy and refreshed.

Surgical fix – in some cases a mid face lift in required to help lift and re suspend the fat on the cheek pad, but will always be combined with dermal fillers afterwards.

3 thin sinking lips

The cause – we loose the vermillion border of our lips due to the ageing process , smoking and weight loss also contribute to aged lips.
