Restoration: Bright & light


Age, stress, hormonal imbalance, sun, tobacco and careless lifestyle are all factors involved in skin ageing.

The skin complexion as you age will dull, lines will develop, texture may become uneven and wrinkles appear. All of these factors will create dark areas on your face and the skin will gradually lose the ability to reflect light, this is often why the face appears sad and tired.

When these signs begin to appear, you are the ideal candidate for the Beauty Boost treatment. The Beauty Boost is a safe and simple injectable treatment that consists of microinjections evenly across an area or concentrated in an area.

The treatment is suitable for the face, neck and also the neckline which is a particularly fragile area often ignored by traditional treatments.
The Beauty Boost is designed to:
– Smooth features
– Plump
– Disappearance of dark areas
– Facial oval redrawn
– Disappearance of dark areas
The Beauty Boost is a hyaluronic acid injection that will compensate for the natural loss of this substance (in your skin) and stimulate the auto production of collagen  to target wrinkles, volume loss and skin glow.

During the session, the cosmetic nurse will treat the area with micro injections with a fine needle of very small quantities of Beauty Boost along the lines of wrinkles and evenly spread over the surface of the whole face. This treatment technique allows the nutrients to arrive at the heart of the skin.

The Beauty Boost can be manually injected with syringes and needles, but also electronically for patient comfort. Your session will last about 20 to 45 minutes depending on the treatment area.

Following the session, the patient may return to work but a few small spots may appear at the injection points but they generally disappear quite quickly.

Results are seen immediately following the first session. The skin has a better colour, less creased, better hydrated and becomes suppler. Gradually, from one session to the next, the complexion will become increasingly radiant and the skin becomes firmer.

The micro-injections are shallow and performed with very fine needles. For additional comfort your cosmetic injector may apply a topical numbing cream prior to the treatment.

The Beauty Boosts like all other hyaluronic acid treatment are temporary and depending on several factors: skin type, age and treatment technique.

For optimum results, a treatment contains three sessions 4 to 6 weeks apart. Following the first initial treatment patients are only required to have maintenance session 2 to 3 times a year.

What do patients think?
“The result is natural and this is what I was looking for” Lisa, 47
“My impression is that my face is firmer, my skin replenished… I feel better about myself” Anna, 35

Necklace lines: Best ways to cover necklines

 

Don’t forget the skin on your neck the skin is delicate and can show your age sooner.

Necklines appear from a young age and before prior to The Beauty Boost treatment there was little you could do to correct necklines.

The neck is constantly moving and lines on the neck appear stronger because of this. For those who are not quite ready for the injectable Beauty Boost treatment here are some tips on covering up:

  1. Use a scarf: it’s a pretty obvious one but very on trend at the moment!
  2. Laser: If the lines are still very subtle the Titan Laser treatment might be something you can consider. Read more here.
  3. One of the key issues this area faces is the loss of collagen and elastin, Laser Genesis is also an effective neck treatment that some can consider, read more here.
  4. Creams: If the lines aren’t as prominent as yet, prevention is key so start investing is some active creams that will help boost and lift collagen. We recommend the Dr Spiller, Cellular Night Cream.
    Don’t forget to use an SPF every day. The sun’s dangerous rays damage to your skin texture and cause more lines. Don’t skip this one, read about the benefits of using an SPF here
  5. Makeup tips: Concealer is key.
    Avoid products that will draw attention to the lines, products such as highlighter are very on trend but not your friend when it comes to necklines.
    Aim for a matte concealer, this will be the most flattering.
    When looking for a concealer, don’t skimp. You want to find a concealer highly pigmented. Higher the pigment the less you will need to use on the skin.
    If necklines are strong makeup may lighten the lines but they will not be invisible.Outside of cosmetic procedures we have recommended there are no lotions and potions that will make those lines disappear.

Beautiful, gentle, kind and loving women who are constantly looking at themselves in the mirror and tearing their appearance to shreds.

Thinking that if only they LOOKED differently, then life would be better.

Happier: Mirror Mirror on the Wall

 

Pay attention to how you speak about yourself it carries more weight than you imagine.


In my albeit relatively short time as a wellness coach, I have lost count of the number of women who sit opposite me and tear their appearance to shreds.

I need to lose weight
My thighs are too big
I hate my smile

My skin is gross
I don’t like my feet
I wish my hair was different
I’m so pale

I could go on an on.
Beautiful, gentle, kind and loving women who are constantly looking at themselves in the mirror and tearing their appearance to shreds.

Thinking that if only they LOOKED differently, then life would be better.

We do it to ourselves.
If I lose those 5 kilos, I will be happier
 If my face looked different, I would feel more confident about myself

Constantly putting goal posts in place related to our appearance. When we LOOK a certain way, we will FEEL a certain way.

I’m sorry to break it to you my loves, but this actually isn’t how it works.

If you are looking at yourself in the mirror and berating your appearance, there are far deeper issues to be worked on at an emotional level.

WHY do you think weighing less equates to happiness? Is it a story you are telling yourself around being ‘overweight’ and what that might mean to you?
Feeling unloveable, worthless or just not good enough?

These feelings will not go away regardless of the changes you make to your appearance. The REAL work that needs to be done here is the soul work.
And take it from a girl who has been there, done that. A few years ago I signed up for one of those 12 week body challenges.

I weighed less than I ever have, had the abs and thigh gap and the low body fat percentage. And I also had more severe anxiety than ever before, my health dropped significantly as I was diagnosed with adrenal fatigue and leaky gut and I was SO unhappy.

Flash forward to now, where I am the heaviest I have ever weighed – and I couldn’t be happier OR healthier. So what changed?
My mindset.

So HOW do you start looking in the mirror and loving what you see REGARDLESS of where you are at physically?

Catch your stories
Next time you look at yourself in the mirror, pay attention to the thoughts running through your head. What are you telling yourself? How are you talking about yourself? Would you let your bestie talk that way about herself?

This is about awareness, and is really the first step in any significant change. The more you can catch yourself talking poorly about your appearance, the more likely you can also CHANGE that dialogue – which is the goal.

Change them up
Once you start becoming super aware of your negative stories, start to change them up.
If you are telling yourself you are fat, change it to – I am healthy, strong and vibrant. If you are bemoaning your skin or face, repeat something about yourself that you love – maybe it’s your hair, or your kindness or your determination (remember it doesn’t have to be about looks!)

Own your insecurities
Start to keep a journal on your beliefs around your physical appearance – what were you taught about ‘looks’ growing up? Where is your appearance holding you back? What would you be doing differently if you loved yourself fully?

Enlist someone to help you
Self-love, body love and loving your whole self – cellulite and wrinkles and all – is not often a journey you can conquer alone.

There is a myriad of self-love gurus available online, in the Personal Development section in Dymocks or even sessions with Wellness Coaches, like me. Don’t feel like you have to forge this path to self-love alone.

Read our blog on self-love here
And remember – you are so worthy of your own love. One day you will look in the mirror and smile as you embrace yourself for WHO you are. If it can happen to me, it can happen to anyone.
