Time poor but don’t want to skim on the results?

A treatment that only takes 16 to 20minutes and it subsides active acne, promotes skin rejuvenation and relieves pain. Need to know more? Read on…
The cells that manufacture the skins supportive structures begin to slow down as we grow older.

Environmental damage from the sun speed up the aging process and produce free radicals that damage the skin and the cells that product collagen and elastin.

There are multiple applications for the Light Emitting Diode (LED)technology:
Yellow light
– Wound healing
– Pain relief
– Muscle and joint pain
– Muscle spasm
– Temporary increase of blood circulation
– Hair regrowth
– Acne treatment
– Skin rejuvenation

Red light
– Non-Melanoma skin cancer
– Skin rejuvenation
– Hair regrowth
– Active acne
Blue light
– Active acne

The LED light treatment can be added to any facial or injectable treatment that we offer. It’s particularly great for those who have had injectables as it will help with swelling and for those prone to bruising, the light will greatly lessen the chance of bruising.

If you are tight for time, then this is the only treatment you need in conjunction with some good home care products!

Get her look: Red Carpet Ready

If you haven’t heard already, we’re the go to for all of the local babes in town!

We love getting our Celeb’s and VIPs ready for their Album shoot, cover shoot and even the red carpet.

The most recent red carpet we had the pleasure of being involved with was the LOGIES! Australia’s version of the OSCARS?
Ksenija Lukich is the host of the E! Entertainment Show

She looks incredible day and night, on and off camera but when the red carpet is rolled out we know all of our celebs want to look better than their best!

So this is what we did (and what we usually do for anyone who wants to have glowing and healthy skin for an event):

Here is what Yvonne, Advanced Dermal Therapist did…

Face Plus Enzyme Facial, is our signature facial. It is a mild peel that we perform most commonly in our clinic.

Using Dr Spiller products and herbs this is a facial suitable for almost anyone. How? We tailor the facial to the individual to ensure we get the results you’re looking for from the facial. You can read more about the facial here

Desincrustation with an alkaline solution is applied, causing the alkaline to have the following effects and benefits:
– Skin softening
– Dilates follicles
– Increases sensitivity
This step is when Yvonne is seen using the hand piece. Read more here

Laser Genesis, full face is performed to provide the skin with an overall glow.

LG is a miracle laser that minimises the size of pores, boosts collagen production and minimise fine lines and wrinkles. It has also been found to help with those who suffer from acne or have new-ish small scars. You can read more about the treatment here

LED Light Therapy, with this particular machine that we used on Ksenija, the treatment takes a total of 20minutes. You can read more about the treatment here

In total this treatment package takes 2 hours. At no stage will you experience any pain or discomfort. More often than not our patients will fall asleep until we wake them.

Who do you look up to: Finding your role model

 

Growing up, I really admired Ita Buttrose.

As a young girl aspiring to make my way in the print journalism industry, Ita was the epitome of everything I wanted to be – intelligence, strength and elegance. The day I got to meet her I was a stuttering mess – I lost my cool completely.

It’s funny how role models can have that effect on us – admiring someone to the point of thinking they are almost super-human (when in fact, they are just like the rest of us).

Having people in your life you admire and look up to is a wonderful means of inspiration and source of motivation. When you admire someone because of their character – who they are as a person and the work they do in the world – it can act as a driving force to your own efforts in life; being the person you truly want to be, by learning from those who have done it before us.

In my time as a wellness coach, I have noticed an alarming trend. In a world where social media is king, the young women I am seeing are gravitating towards idolising people for the way they look, above and beyond anything else.

The #fitspo trend is an example of this. This may be a generalisation, however in my own experience coaching women between the age of 18 – 40, a large majority of them are looking up to social media celebrities because of their body shape (and whether they have abs or a thigh gap) as opposed to the genuine type of people they are, and the work they are doing in the world.

Now that is not to say that you can’t be a good person with abs or a thigh gap. Of course you can! However when the admiration stems only skin deep, some real challenges can come to light – namely body image and self-worth issues.

Here are some simple ways to find a role model that leaves you inspired and uplifted, rather than feeling second-best:

Insta-cull

Take out your phone and scroll through your Instagram feed. Any image or account that makes you feel bad about yourself – delete. Role models should leave you feeling happy and inspired, not wishing you looked a certain way.

Pay attention to the Insta-stories of the people you admire, to get a feel for what they stand for. Do you watch them and feel inspired and motivated? If yes, keep following. If not – then why are you still watching?

List your values

When was the last time you really thought about what it is you value in life? Maybe it is health and happiness? Perhaps it is loving relationships and family. Take some time to sit and journal what it is that matters most to you in your life.

Once you have a clear idea of your top 3-5 values, make a conscious effort to connect with more content related to these things. You may discover new blogs, Facebook groups and Instagram accounts aligned with your values that you didn’t even know existed. The key here is to get crystal clear on what these are BEFORE you start searching. 

Read non-fiction

Take yourself off to the non-fiction aisle, or even the self-help section, in your nearest book store and start to pick up books that capture your attention. You may discover inspiring authors you would have otherwise missed.

Everybody has a story to tell – and they don’t have to be a best-seller to share a story that will inspire you. Branch out of your comfort zone and expand your book-horizon. Better yet, start a book-swap with friends of yours, where you share the books that inspired each of you. You may just discover your new favourite author.

Who is a role model in your life, and why do they inspire you?
