#RejuvenationGoals: Cosmetic rejuvenation

What does a cosmetic consultation involve?

It was announced that as a nation, for the first time ever, we’ve splashed out more than $1 billion on non-invasive cosmetic treatments in 2016, a 25 per cent growth since 2015.

The knowledge and technology has come a long way. Gone are the days of the frozen and over inflated faces (well, not for some)! At Face Plus Medispa we only ever prescribe the patient with what will appear most natural.

The Face Plus Medispa’s cosmetic consultation process is a key point of difference and strength. First timers will breeze through their consultation and treatment, wondering “why have I been putting this off for so long?”.

Cosmetic consultation process:
1. The first step is, we ask a lot of questions. If you have already experience a Face Plus skin consultation you already have an idea of how thorough we are during this process. Read more here

Your nurse injector will ask about your diet and lifestyle habits. A quick skin assessment will be performed and the aging process will be explained.

2. If you have arrived with make-up on your nurse will remove any make-up if necessary and take some snap shots to save them into your records

3. The nurse will then hand you a mirror and ask you to point out your areas of concern, areas you would like to enhance or change. Your nurse will listen to your needs, watch your facial movements and identify how to best treat the areas specified, cosmetically.

4. A bespoke treatment plan will be devised, identifying which products would be most appropriate, how many and ensure that it works within your budget.

Face Plus Medispa carry all available muscle relaxants, dermal fillers and sculpting product available in the market, this allows us to create a treatment plan perfectly tailored to your needs. The treatment plan may also include skin treatments and home care products to work with the proposed injectable treatment plan.

5. A doctor’s consultation is always needed prior to any injectable treatment, this is a strict protocol prior to prescribing a Schedule 4 injectable.

The nurse injector may invite a doctor into the room or alternatively video call a doctor, allowing them to see a clear image of the patients face and muscle contractions, movement and volume loss.

Once you confirm you would like to go ahead with the first step of your plan, your first treatment can happen on the same day as the consultation if the appropriate amount of time has been allocated.

Oh and don’t worry! We have every distraction method under the sun available to you, especially if you have a fear of needles.

Cosmetic consultations offered at Face Plus Medispa will take between 20 to 30 minutes depending on your requirements. If you have chosen to move forward with your treatment your nurse will ask you to return for a complimentary follow up appointment in approximately 7 days to 2 weeks to ensure we have achieved the desired outcome.

Lip Enhancer: Perfect Pout

Your pout will love “The Perfecting Gloss” in three gorgeous shades.

Lips, front and almost centre of the face and no matter what season it is, with age they begin to lose volume. Read more about that here

The HydroPetide, Perfecting Gloss Enhancing treatment will help restore fullness, volume and definition within MINUTES!

Let us first explain what peptides do and why we, at Face Plus Medispa love them so very much! Peptides have the ability to improve the skin without negative effects, this is what sets them apart from other active ingredients.

Peptides are short chains of amino acids or protein fragments that act as a cellular communicator to signal to the skin to act in a healthier, younger-looking way.

Key Ingredients:
The Perfecting Gloss contains 4 peptides, they are plumping, warming and retinoic like. These peptides rebuild and stimulate collagen, increases circulation and collagen synthesis without irritation.

Triple action hyaluronic will address skin tightening and on three different level’s: skin elasticity, hydration and skin smoothing. They act instantly and offer long term skin tightening and hydration.

Meadowfoam estolide, hydrates and smooths lips all day without causing dryness or irritation.
Niacin increases circulation, providing immediate lip fullness!

The Perfecting Gloss will perfect your pout with refreshing, cool tingly sensation and a glowing gloss.

Collagen stimulating peptides help from below the skin’s surface to build youthful plumpness.
A great product to have handy, even if you have lip fillers. No one can ever get enough peptides!

Wellness: What even is wellness?

The word ‘wellness’ is having a real moment in health and wellbeing circles. 

Chances are you have heard the word dropped into casual conversations in your gym or when buying your acai bowl. But what actually is wellness?

The definition of wellness is a healthy balance of the mind, body and spirit.
So with that in mind, wellness is actually far more than the food you eat and how often you exercise.

While these two components of health and wellbeing are important in the grand scheme of wellness, they are NOT the only things to think about – which is where a lot of health circles and “fitspo” pages tend to fall short.

I describe wellness to my clients as when your physical and mental health align. It is all well and good if you are training every day and drinking your green smoothies – but if you are only getting 3 hours of sleep a night, spend the day in shallow breathing because you are so stressed, if you hate your job and don’t feel you have a purpose, and all of your relationships are challenging – then all the kale salads and ab selfies in the world aren’t going to make you feel 100% aligned in your health and wellbeing.

To feel truly well on all levels, here are some lifestyle areas for you to review:

  • Sleep: are you getting between 7-9 hours and waking up feeling energised and excited for the day?
  • Career: Do you feel like you are contributing to something greater than yourself? Most importantly, do you love your job?
  • Relationships: Are your relationships easy, balanced and inspiring, or draining and demanding?
  • Nutrition: Do you eat because you love to nourish your body, or out of fear of putting on weight?
  • Exercise: Do you train because you love the way it makes you feel, or because if you don’t you will feel guilty?
  • Mental Health: Is there someone you speak to about your challenges, stressors, moods, etc.?

Sit down and have a real think about the state of your wellbeing in ALL areas – too often we are focused on food and exercise with little review into the other lifestyle areas that make up a HUGE component of our lives.

Remember your mental health is just as important as your physical health, if not more so.
