Up tight: Skin Tightening treatment

Collagen & Elastin, I wish I was nicer to you when I was younger.

I wish I had spent less time in the sun.
I wish I had used SPF instead of oil on my skin.

Oh well, at least we had a great time. No regrets, right?
Well, maybe some, when you look in the mirror and see the tummy, jaw line, cheek bones or your neck isn’t as tight as it used to be!

There are some lasers available on the market than can achieve the same results as Titan but they are known to be painful and results can take up to 6 months to be visible following one treatment.

The point of difference…
Titan is an FDA approved light based system to promote dermal heating. As it heats up the dermis using infrared light it initiates skin tightening, even reaching beneath the skin’s surface. The surface of the skin is protected with a continuous cooling system delivered in the same hand piece.

This technique allows for a more uniformed distribution of energy for heating deep into the dermis compared to other energy sources.

Titan utilises a unique range of wavelengths combined with strict treatment parameters. An immediate tightening effect results when the dermis heats up in a contraction of the collagen. The body recognises this as an “injury” an creates a healing response, which leads to increased collagen production.

A series of 3 to 6 treatments are recommended to optimal results. This is a non-invasive treatment with little to no downtime. Following the treatment some may experience some minor swelling, redness but this dissipates within a 24 hour period.

Following each treatment patients will see a gradual improvement, with some Face Plus patients seeing one after just one treatment!

The results will last up to one year, but it will also be impacted by the condition of the skin, ongoing care and continued aging.

This results driven skin tightening laser treatment, Titan is currently only available from our Bondi Junction clinic.

Brew hah hah: Cleanse, detoxify & boost

Cleanse, detoxify and boosts, is that your current mantra in the lead up to bikini season?

Meet our friend the NO.7 Slim Me, tea by Edible Beauty.
Firstly we will begin by introducing Edible Beauty, Edible Beauty Australia was created by naturopath and nutritionist Anna Mitsios.

The Edible Beauty Australia philosophy is based on illuminating your natural beauty using pure, wildcrafted and botanical ingredients that are literally good enough to eat.

The NO. 7 Slim Me tea is a tisane made with Puerrh tea, a fermented black team with STRONG cleansing properties and an unmistakeable earthy delicious natural flavour.

The Chinese have been drinking Puerrh tea for more than 1,700 years, especially as a digestif after a heavy meal. In recent years, Puerrh tea have shown that is has antioxidant and cholesterol lowering, blood pressure and blood sugar lowering properties whilst improving the bacterial flora in the intestines.

However, Puerrh tea is best known for its ability to inhibit an enzyme complex called fatty acid synthase (FAS), making it a potential anti-obesity agent.

This key botanical active will assist in enhancing the metabolism and facilitating weight loss!

In addition, the Slim Me Tea includes another botanical active, White Tea. Harvested in the Chinese province of Fujian, it is the least processed of all teas. White tea contains the same type of antioxidants found in green tea, but in GREATER quantities. These potent antioxidants have been found to have many potential health benefits, including boosting cardiovascular health and enhancing weight loss.

Some studies have found that white tea’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties may also slow the breakdown of the skin elastin and collagen, enhancing the appearance of skin!

Just one teaspoon in a cup of boiling water is needed for this delicious brew.

That first sip, you’ll get addicted to the organic rose petals that provide anaromatic and relaxing experience.

#Winning: How to win at life

I have always been in two minds about “goal-setting”.

On the plus side, goals are a wonderful way of holding us to account when it comes to achieving our dreams.

We can set goals that act as a way to work towards the life we truly want – our ultimate health, wealth, relationships, career…and the list goes on.
Read our top tips for setting and achieving goals. 

However, in my time as a coach, I have also seen the detrimental effects goal setting can have on us. We can set some really unrealistic goals and end up feeling bad about ourselves when we don’t achieve them.

We can work our butts of towards a goal that may have mattered at some stage in our life, but isn’t even relevant anymore.
What I have learned is goals don’t work for everyone – and that that is okay.

Instead, what really matters, when it comes to winning at life, is having a crystal clear idea in mind as to what

WINNING looks like for you.
And here’s the thing: it looks different for everyone.
I know some people who’s ultimate dream is to find their soul mate, get married and have lots of babies. Their ultimate ‘win’ is to settle down with a family.

Now, for others, that dream is enough to make them laugh. Why would they want to settle down when their dream is to travel the world, live a bachelor/bachelorette lifestyle and continue to do so well into their later years?

What matters here is identifying what YOUR dream life looks like.
Ask yourself the following questions – and be as specific in the answers as possible:

If money didn’t matter, and fear didn’t exist…. 
Where would I live? 
What would I be doing for a job?
What would I be doing in my spare time?

Who would be in my life?
What would my weekends look like?
How would my health look?
How would my bank account look?

How would my love life look? 
We don’t often sit and reflect on what we TRULY want, and can get caught up living lives for someone else, and on someone else’s terms – be it a partner, a boss or a loved one.

To REALLY win at life, you need to first understand what winning looks like for you – and you alone.

Once you have done the work on answering these questions, get visual with it.

Purchase a cork board and start printing out images that reflect your dream life. Want to travel the world? Print pictures of the places at the top of your list. Want to buy your dream home? Find an image that best represents it, and pop it on your board.

This is called Vision Boarding and is not to be underestimated – rather than ‘goal setting’, vision boarding allows us to really SEE what it is we want to be creating, and subliminally we start to attract more opportunities that are in alignment with these dreams.

I have been keeping vision boards since I was 18 and cannot begin to tell you what I have achieved from really clarifying what it is I truly want in life. I have visited every single travel destination that has been on my board (Disneyland twice in one year was a highlight), and I even was proposed to in a castle I had posted on a board 5 years earlier (my fiancé never even saw this board).

Stop putting pressure on yourself to achieve, and start to really acknowledge what kind of a life would truly light you up. When you can get clear on THIS, the rest will just naturally fall into place.
