The power of Botox in your professional career

Looking fresh and vital is not just a matter of vanity but can also be a  professional survival. And as we grow older, we need to be the best versions of ourselves. And this is why we do several things to keep us ahead of the game, like go to the gym, watch our diet, whiten our teeth and have Botox done regularly!

Stay young and natural with Botox!

Do you look in the mirror and feel like your best years are already behind you? I think not!

Botox can do absolute wonders for our looks to stay young and natural ! People’s pre-conceived ideas about Botox might give you the wrong idea about it, as the media portrays it as giving only the ‘perfect’ look, connoting a fake image and appearance.

Also, some individuals are afraid of using Botox as they believe that repetition will end in the abuse of the substance, reinforcing a ‘fake’ look!

Although this can be true, that some opt for the ‘flawless’ look, at the London Facial Care, we cater for each individual needs. Using the correct technique is essential and request to assess muscle activity properly, observing if there is any assymetry, injecting Botox precisely and  knowing how much to use and with which dilution.

Bothered by underarm sweat? Tired of underarm stains in shirts? Botox can be a solution

If you sweat excessively, you may be suffering from a medical condition known as Hyperhydrosis. Axillary hyperhydrosis can be personally distressing and interfere with your social and professional life. Fortunately, the condition is treatable and Botox™ is the new and effective treatment for axillary hyperhydosis. I’ll be happy to discuss this with you in a sensitive manner and in complete confidence.

Botox™ offers a safe alternative to surgical interventions, on-going topical applications or frequent treatment modalities for reducing sweating, with no significant complications or side effects.

The power of Botox disables the sweat glands and causes the sweating on the treated area to stop. This medicine prevents the function of the sympathetic nerves and sweating reduces a few days after the injection. This way a good result will stay for 6-12 months.

Botox is injected only dermal (intra-dermal) so that the effect on muscles is almost non-existent.

If you wish to know more about this treatment, please call the practice, my assistants will be more than happy to book you in for an appointment with me.

Non-surgical brow lift  with Botox

Have you ever wondered what an eyebrow lift is? An Eyebrow lift is an advanced non-surgical brow lift cosmetic procedure that raises the position of the eyebrow. A gently arched eyebrow conveys an attractive, youthful, happy and confident individual. It is usually a more feminine aspect of beauty.

This is where Botox comes in. Treatments can be performed with BOTOX® to achieve a perfect eyebrow lift. Depending on the desired shape of the brow, small doses of botulinum toxin can be injected to elevate and promote a lateral eyebrow, lifting or elevating the intermediate or medial part of the eyebrow.

The best result is achieved when treating the eyebrow lift together with the other areas of the upper face. In the case of a sagging brow, the use of dermal filler or threads could be necessary to get a complete and efficient result.

If you wish to find out more about this Botox treatment, please call the practice, my assistants will be more than happy to help you book an appointment with me!

Use Botox to reduce the definition of platysma neck bands!

Amazing results can be achieved with the use of Botox and Dysport for platysma neck bands. Younger patients will require less Botox injection treatment and may have better results than some, but some excellent results can be achieved as well in older patients combined when combining this treatment with Threads or Dermal fillers (in this delicate area, I use only a blunt cannula to inject fillers to avoid bruising). It also helps to tighten ageing skin and can restore the original contour of the jaw line more effectively!

To find out what could suit you best, please call the practice, my assistants will be more than happy to help you book an appointment.

Beyond Botox – the future of anti-ageing

When we think about anti-ageing techniques, we quickly imagine sunscreens or face creams, or even our diet.  Some might already know about techniques such as Mesotherapy, Botox and PRP.

But the last years have seen science advance at unimaginable levels. The development of lab researches has landed us with items like ‘the second skin’ that can erase wrinkles for certain periods of time.

 

Sounds weird, right? Hold on, you will love this! This ‘second skin’ is a polymer film that is silicone-based,which was developed at MIT university in the USA, and that is said to cover wrinkles and eye bags for 24 hours. This makes the skin look smoother and firmer, as if you have undergone a Mesotherapy session!

Perfectly Imperfect Lips

We have lost count of the seasons, in which natural-looking beauty and minimal efforts have been trending. But for the autumn and winter of 2017, a more sophisticated and pronounced look is evolving! This season is all about a meticulously groomed appearance, where flawless is law!

For some inspiration, the famous Lanvin, Max Mara and Isabel Marant are trends you can’t miss! With the supermodel feel, make sure to keep an eye on the curled eyelashes and perfect defined brows for a complete defined look!

However, you dont have to be on your best behaviour for your lips! Fashion trends this winter of 2017 are pointing at more imperfect-looking lips, which means you dont have to constantly keep reapplying!

Val Garland own words state that “just-snogged” lips are an inspiration for the smeared and messed-up pouts! Also, subtly worn-in pouting lips and spread edges were on show at the Giambattista Valli.

REAL BEAUTY COMES FROM THE INSIDE OUT

It is nice to take care of our skin, getting the last tips for a perfect make up but the most attractive person, sometime are not the most beautiful one !

They have this “ je ne sais quoi “ , an inner beauty and appear attractive in unique ways. Not by what they’re doing to take care of their appearance but by the radiant energy they give out.When beauty comes as much from within as without, it in turn magnifies their outer beauty.

let’s get inspired with some poems and take care of our soul !

Have you heard about Haikus ? I’m passionate about it !

Haiku is a form of poetry, first made popular in Japan, which has become appreciated

around the world. In Japan these poems are valued for their simplicity, openness, depth and lightness.

with only 3 sentences, haikus are incredibly modern. They embrace  perfectly our modernity with a  fast and short communication style while on the same time it invites us practicing to pause in the moment and cultivate a sense of awareness, compassion and peace.

Haikus are an instant photography of a moment or an emotion.

Let’s celebrate Autumn coming with an Haiku from Dorothy Alves Holmes and an haiku from my personal creation:

REAL BEAUTY COMES FROM THE INSIDE OUT

“Radiant in woods

fall colours serenade life, 

sun whispers softly”

One of the first things people notice about us is our aesthetics, specially our hair!

With the years, hair has meant different things to society. Looking back, it once indicated social status as well as religious and social statements about people in society.

Hair is a conversation starter and is usually used as a pre-judgement factor on someone’s personality and attributes, depending on the amount of hair products you use or don’t use in your hair care routine. People also make pre-judgements on your health, wealth and sexual desirability depending on how your hair looks like.

For example, long and healthy hair which is smooth and silky is marketed on TV adverts, making hair and haircare an important factor that is linked to sexuality! On the other hand, crazy hair styles are often viewed as passing on a message of non-conformity or of a big personality (think Lady Gaga)!

So, giving the importance of our beautiful and fragile hair, this month’s focus will be all about how to get healthy hair to shine under the sun! We will mainly focus on treatments to help stop hair thinning, what is alopecia, how to deal with grey hair.

And finally, we will also get inspiration from our stars for the best hair style to wear this summer and chose from the catwalk the best swimsuits of the summer to look our best while walking along the beach! All this whilst showing off our beautiful and shiny hair!

IT’S YOUR HAIR, LEARN TO TAKE CARE OF THEM

With summer at our doorsteps, there are increasingly high chances that we don’t take care of our hair the way we should. For that reason, make sure you follow these useful haircare tips on how to get healthy hair!

  1. Avoid the risks of Sun damage to your hair: 

It is important to wear a protection hat whilst under the sun, as too much sun can cause your hair to dry and create splits very easily. Blondes and people with grey hairs are also more vulnerable and that’s why you should also opt got hair care products with sunscreen in them!

Consider Mesotherapy or PRP to revive and restore healthy, thick and shiny hair

How to get healthy hair is always a hard question to determine, once we have passed superficial attempts used from drugstore pharmacies. This is why I recommend Hair Mesotherapy as an effective hair regrowth treatment for people suffering of alopecia and hair loss.

Mesotherapy, a non-surgical technique, consists of microinjections in your target tissues to stimulate the mesoderm, which relieves a wide variety of symptoms and conditions. Mesotherapy brings around the hair follicle  a broad range of vitamins, minerals, nucleic acids, amino acids and co-enzymes so that the hair follicle can grow and survive through correct blood circulation and the excess of DHT ( Dy hydrotestosterone) is neutralised.

For a painless procedure, suitable analgesia is applied, depending on the area to be treated and the length of your hair. The use of the  U225 Mesogun allow a rapid placement of plasma precisely into the scalp, whilst reducing the discomfort of the procedure significantly.

Can’t stand grey hairs? Here’s what to do!

No matter how old we are, there will be a point in our life in which grey hairs will start haunting us and our hair! For this reason, I have assembled a few tips to make sure you deal with this problem in absolute style!

  1. I spotted those two grey hair strands and I’m freaking out?! Don’t worry, it is more than normal to have a few strands of grey hair, which means it’s not a sign that there will be more. Therefore, you can simply cut them out carefully instead of plucking your hair, as this will damage and traumatize your hair follicle.

What is Alopecia?

Alopecia is a hair loss condition, and is a terminology that refers to different forms of hair loss, both scarring and non-scarring ones.

Alopecia areata is a non-scarring skin disease, as the hair follicle bulb is intact, and thus alopecia symptoms present an abnormal pathophysiology where localized areas of hair loss are usually presented as patches.

TREATING THINNING HAIR

Male baldness is not only due to age but multiple factors than are out of our control sometimes. It is usually characterised by hair decreasing from the lateral sides of the forehead and/or a thinning crown. These increase over time and eventually it can be too late to reverse these results. These are often referred to as the pattern of androgenic alopecia.

A hair loss remedy, Plasma therapy (PRP) can be useful in treating I-IV androgenic alopecia if there are still miniaturised hair follicles. This treatment won’t active dormant follicles but it has shown that up to 70% of patients do experience extra hair growth from active follicles.

Women are also among those that suffer from thinning hair, especially when they reach the age of 60. Loss patterns are usually different to men, although I have personally treated women with hair loss patterns more similar to men. Furthermore, female hair loss is more defused and hence they do not have the same options for surgical transplant and medication. This is where PRP treatment kicks in, as it is a safe and effective alternate solution.
