Ksenija’s Fave: Laser (amazing) Genesis

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]treatment_blog

Ksenija Lukich, E! Host Australia, one of Face Plus Medispa’s long time patients, when asked what her favourite treatment was for this blog, without hesitation she said LASER GENESIS!
Ksenija isn’t the only one hooked on this treatment! In fact, Kendall Jenner has credited her flawless complexion to the laser genesis treatment.
This is a treatment we recommend to all of our busy celebrity VIP patients, with ZERO downtime the non invasive treatment treats a variety of skin concerns, perfecting and balancing skin tone and texture.
Face Plus Medispa offer a package of 4, 5 and 6 treatments but a course of six treatments are always recommended for optimum, long lasting results.

Following a course of treatments you should see:
An improvement is redness and rosacea
Minimised unsightly small veins and capillaries
Reduce the size of large pores and open pores
Soften acne and surgical scars
Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
Improved overall skin texture

If you have heard about the treatment before, was it Ksenija? “I’ve been telling everyone who will listen! It’s the best thing ever!” says Ksenija about the treatment.

We spoke to Yvonne Culhane, Ksenija’s advanced laser and dermal therapist and asked her why she recommended a course of these treatments “It was really important that what ever course of treatments we moved forward with, it did not impact her job and her day to day activities.  The first step was to get her on a range of products that were appropriate for her skin and we chose the Dr Spiller range for her. We then started on a course of Laser Genesis to improve and perfect the overall texture of her skin”.

The Laser Genesis works by gently heating the upper dermis below the skin surface. You skin will feel a little warm and may appear pink following the treatment, but only for a short time.

Laser Genesis is suitable for most skin types. This treatment is available from all three Face Plus Medispa clinics. Call now for a consultation:

There isn’t a pill out there that will magically make us fit and healthy over night but if you stick with the following guidelines you’ll achieve long term, sustainable and healthy weight loss.
unnamed
Track it: Keep a food diary. It always helps to be aware of your eating habits when you’re starting a new diet.

Portion: Weight gain is often a direct result of over eating. Lower your portion size and you might just see immediate results!

Count calories: Monitoring the total number of calories consumed will also allow you to determine if you’re eating too little or too much.
balanced-diet-foods
Balance: Make sure you are eating a well balanced diet.
f1ed3f44fc10d07d787d4bc3f85cdc56
Plan: A meal plan is the easiest way to ensure you are eating the correct amount of calories. Stock your house and refrigerator will healthy foods that you can cook with and snack on.
3483cc5de4940eca05e70e5c554d173d
Sweat: Exercise at least 5 times a week for 30 to 45 minutes.
Exercise is great for weight loss, but remember it is only a part of the weight loss process. Exercise is key to maintaining a healthy body. Using a machine like the treadmill and elliptical is a great way to track the total number of calories burned but these aren’t always accurate!
tumblr_m9s4x2y0hl1ro2d43
Lift: Weight training should be a part of your exercise routine, at least two times a week.
woman-standing-on-scales-010-1
Scales: Don’t weigh yourself too often! The body can fluctuate day to day but it is important to monitor your weight and this should be done no more than once a week.
 
Focus on the end goal of living a healthy, balanced lifestyle and changing negative habits.
If you feel you have followed the above rules and can’t budge the weight you should seek the assistance of a professional.

Pure Mineral Make Up: Healthy Make up?

[vc_row full_width=”” css=”.vc_custom_1457063834351{padding-top: 30px !important;}”][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1457064161918{padding-bottom: 30px !important;}”][vc_column_text]

Pure Mineral Make Up: Healthy Make up?

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]beauty_janeiredale
There are a number of make up brands that claim to be a mineral make up product but contain chemicals that are not necessarily safe for sensitive skin.
Here is the low down….
There is a misconception that all mineral powders come from the earth. Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide originate in natural rocks but are manipulated heavily in the extraction process and in laboratories. Minerals such as Iron Oxide and Mica are manufactured only under strict laboratory conditions. In nature, these minerals would be contaminated with heavy metals and toxins and would be prohibited for use in cosmetics.  This does not make them less mineral.
Clean is the best word to describe products that don’t contain toxins and questionable ingredients rather than natural. There are mineral powders with talc, parabens, synthetic dyes and other undesirable ingredients. Never fear, there are still few purist brands around and we are one of the lucky clinics to be able to offer the Jane Iredale range.
Good mineral powder should contain a combination of any of the following ingredients: Titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, iron oxides, mica, bismuth oxychloride or boron nitride.  Some patients find bismuth oxychloride to be irritating to the skin in facial powders and foundations, Jane Iredale have chosen not to use it in any of their powders or foundations. The minerals should appear at the top of the ingredients and not at the bottom. Ingredients are listed in descending order with the largest amount listed first.
A true mineral make up should not contain fillers such as talc, nylon and corn starch. The higher the percentage of minerals will provide versatile coverage, sun protection and benefits for the skin. Traditional colour cosmetics contain 70 to 90% talc and are often coloured with petroleum-derived dyes.
The Jane Iredale range contains no substances that cause sensitivities. All products  have been safety, allergy and clinically tested. Whilst containing ingredients that calm the skin, such as titanium dioxide and zinc oxide which will help soothe and cam the erythema. Zinc oxide is also an anti-microbial.
