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.

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!

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!

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 them  healthy !

  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 and what can be done ?

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.

WHY IS THE SKIN AROUND YOUR EYES SO FRAGILE?

One of the main beauty tips for anti-ageing lies in the preservation of the periorbital region. That is the most sensitive skin around your eyes that will show signs of ageing quicker than other areas. It is 1.5 millimeters thinner than the average thickness of the rest of your facial skin, making it more vulnerable to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. This is usually assisted by the fact that we have fewer oil glands in the periorbital region that the rest of our face, creating a tired look and a thin fragile skin. It is not a hopeless case, however, and we can prevent and remedy aesthetic eye issues. By understanding the problems, we can find solutions to cater for every particular case. Solutions range from dermal fillers, mesotherapy, Botox to prevent crow’s feet, and even the best sunscreen to protect your face! So don’t be demotivated, we are in this together!

What is mesotherapy and how can it remedy dark circles under your eyes?

First, it is important to understand why we have dark circles under the eyes. This can be due to various reasons, such as; a bad diet, smoking, allergic reactions, irregular sleep cycle or even genetic predisposition. Dark circles usually don’t reflect internal organ problems, but ligaments that hold the fatty tissue under our eyes start to show, when fat tissue and bone in this area disappear progressively.  The appearance of bags and dark circles under our eyes can also be due to a bad circulation of the periorbital region, which can result in fluid retention and under eye circles.

SUFFER FROM DARK CIRCLES OR PUFFY EYES? CONSIDER DERMAL FILLERS!

We’ve looked at the advantages of mesotherapy in correcting moderate dark circles, but what if the problem is deeper than mere pigmentation of the skin? Hollowness under the eyes can occur as we age, where blood vessels are visible when stretching the skin. The skin becomes prominent to enlarged capillaries, which is the result of reduced function of fibroblast, free radicals and UV sun radiation.

Botox around the eyes has become an effective solution for softening wrinkles on the crow’s feet area, but it is a delicate area that needs to be approached carefully as not all patients are eligible for it.

The best time to use Botox around our eyes to solve crow’s feet is when wrinkles are still very thin, so the process can be as efficient as possible.

Injection in the crow feet area needs to be done carefully, to avoid touching other muscles of the face which can sometimes cause sagging cheeks. Also, caution needs to be taken to make sure there is no change in the shape of the eyes after injection has been done.

When wrinkles are more pronounced, I use a combination of Botox and derma fillers. I never inject Botox for the crow’s feet area without addressing the forehead too. My 3 Botox areas focus on including the other muscles, which creates a better end result in synergy with a brow lift effect.

SHAPING & ACHIEVING AN EYEBROW LIFT WITH BOTOX

Have you ever considered a eyebrow lift with Botox? Nowadays, having the perfect shaped eye brows has been an essential must for women. It is hard however to achieve that balance naturally, which is why I recommend a Botox treatment!

There are muscles that depress the brow, and muscles that lift the brow. By using Botox, we can paralyze the muscles that depress the brow and manage to give it a slight elevation. Each individual requires different assessment to make sure the lift complements the rest of their face, which I will carefully assess during a facial consultation.

The consultation is required to conduct a detailed understanding of what the patient needs. Once this is done, I will carefully apply Botox in the muscles that depress the brow, which causes it to relax and lift its position. It is a good non-surgical brow lift option, however, there are limits on how much the brow can be lifted.

I can shape your brows in different ways too, depending on whether you want a raised arched brow, a raised horizontal brow or even raising the tail of the brow. We can even consider adding fillers alongside Botox, as they can provide an excellent end result.

So why not book today an appointment with Dr. Fern to find out what is suitable for you?
