Penmanship: Skin Needling

Wrinkles, stretch marks, scars, acne scarring, skin tone, fine lines, loose skin, large pores and discolouration – ALL targeted by the one treatment!

Which treatment you ask? Microneedling – Dermapen!
Regardless of your skin colour or type, microneedling is one of the best treatments you can have performed to make your skin appear fresh and younger.

Multiple vertical needles pierce the skin, creating thousands of micro-injuries. The Dermapen treatment produces micro-injuries to encourage the skin and leverage it’s power to re-grow and repair naturally.

Dermapen has been proven to enhancing skin rejuvenation and is much safer and offers clients a faster recovery time, compared to similar treatments.

Dermapen is a fairly simple procedure that is performed with a hand-controlled device with small, shallow needles to puncture the outer layer of the skin. The micro-injuries to the skin will stimulate the body to produce new collagen and elastic.

The freshly produced collagen will rejuvenate your skin by filling in fines lines, resulting in an overall improvement in the texture and tightness of your skin by removing wrinkles, scars and stretch marks.

This treatment is not restricted to the face. Dermapen can also treat many other areas of the body including arms, legs, neck, back hands and stomach.
This treatments, like many of our treatments at Face Plus are not designed to be a miracle instant fix.

The treatments will usually take between 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on the size of the treated area. Immediately following the treatment your skin will appear a little flush/red, a few days following, your skin will return to normal.  Typically our clients begin to see results, weeks or even months following a series of prescribes treatments.

The total number of treatments are determined by two factors:
1. Results you wish to achieve
2. Size of the treatment area
Wrinkles and stretch marks, depending on the severity, our clients are prescribed between 4 to 8 treatments to achieve their desired results.
All treatments are spaced 4 to 6 weeks .

Long and lush: Fluttering Lashes

Long lashes have always been associated with being a feminine feature, that’s probably why we love extensions and lash lifts!

Here are some tips to having long beautiful lashes without the assistance of false lashes! All you need is the right mascara and lash care.

When you opt for mascaras and lash products that are filled with natural, nourishing ingredients, you will be able to strengthen and lengthen your eyelashes rather than coating them in pigment.

Just as you would condition the hair on your head to keep it nice and healthy, you can apply the same love to your lashes.

There are some serums that you can invest in, here is the one that we recommend.

If you don’t feel comfortable applying a serum, here are some home remedies we’ve heard of. BEFORE you try these, they may just be old wives’ tales, proceed at your own risk!

Castor oil: This might just work, we do know that castor oil on the brows help the hairs grow and stop in grown hairs from forming. Don’t pour the oil onto your eyes! We suggest purchasing some disposable mascara wands for application. This could be a part of your night time routine.

Green tea: Pop the kettle on and brew a cup of green tea. Using a cotton pad, once the tea has cooled lightly wipe the tea over your lashes. Caffeine and flavonoids in green tea can help maintain the growth of existing lashes and stimulate new growth.

Aloe Vera: A great product with multi purposes. Apply some fresh Aloe, using a disposable mascara wand. The vitamins and powerful nutrients, the gel will improve the growth of your lashes and make them stronger.

Massage your lids: Gently massage your lids to stimulate the hair follicles of your lashes. If you do this regularly, apparently you will see a difference. There is a fine line between gentle and rough, going rough will do more harm, than good!

Don’t look back: Letting go of the past

Do you know what the best part of letting go is? That you’re making room for something more positive in your life.

It’s apart of human nature to dwell on the past from time to time BUT if you are a stage 5 clinger with your past, this potentially becomes unhealthy anchors that hold you from moving forward.

What ever you may have experienced in the past death, bad luck, people and places, these tips may help you let go and open the doors to a more positive moment:

1.Give it time: This isn’t the advice you think its going to be. We think you should give yourself sometime to dwell upon the past. Whatever the event allocate yourself just a small amount of time every day, where you give yourself permission. Day by day shorten that time or skip a day.

2.Why does it matter? Think about why you think you might be holding onto that experience? Analyse it – what can I do to live with this memory? Should you just accept it and move forward?

3.Eliminate: Never, ever use these words again – could, should and would.

4.Replay: There’s not point reliving and sharing the stories with others.

5.Focus: On the present, the now, things that make you happy and bring you joy, right now! If you do that, you’ll have less time to think about the past.

6.Forgive: You will probably not forget but forgive. You can forgive yourself too! Forgiveness is often the one thing that can get you out of pain and stubbornness, be the bigger person!

7.Find a hobby: This relates to the main goal of the post! Make space for the good things. Finding a hobby will help you fill the void or even push out what ever might be holding you back.

Don’t think you’re holding onto anything but you feel a sense of sadness or fear of reaching for what you want? It might be hidden so deep you don’t even know you’re still holding onto something. Reiki has the ability to bring so much to the surface, read about the techniques used in Reiki via out blog.
