DR FERN MAG

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, 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!

Mesotherapy or PRP for healthy 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. It is why I recommend Hair Mesotherapy as an effective hair regrowth treatment for people suffering from 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 for hair regrowth, so the hair follicle can grow and survive through correct blood circulation. The excess of DHT ( Dy dihydrotestosterone) 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 allows the rapid placement of plasma precisely into the scalp while 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 a simple style!

  1. I spotted those two grey hair strands, and I’m freaking out?! Don’t worry; it is more than reasonable to have a few strands of them, 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 traumatise 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 abnormal pathophysiology where localized areas of hair loss are usually presented as patches.

TREATING THINNING HAIR

Baldness Cause
Male baldness is not only due to age but multiple factors that 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.

Hair loss solution with PRP
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. It is where PRP treatment kicks in, as it is a safe and effective alternate solution.

Stimulate hair growth with laser comb

It has never been easier or faster to use techniques for hair growth. It comes to place, especially with the LaserBand 82, that delivers therapeutic light energy directly to your hair follicles through 82 medical-grade lasers (No LEDs)! 

These unique combs are designed to incorporate patented hair parting teeth, which part your hair during thin hair treatment and allows optimal laser light delivery to your follicles. It, therefore, provides a highly useful and effective treatment for hair loss and thinning hair. The laser light penetrates soft tissue and increases the action of adenosine triphosphate (ATP).

This portable device is convenient for home use or while traveling, while still being fast and effective in its use. The treatment takes as little as 90 seconds and should be used three days a week.

Which hair style for the summer?

Like every summer, the goal is to keep your hair style cool and chic, wherever you are! Let’s inspire the mind with the Cannes Festival stars and look at the latest hair trends to look our best this summer!

If you end up going for the short look, make sure you don’t go halfway and do it like Cara Delevinge, who looks stunning in her new buzzcut. However, make sure it suits your face before opting for this look.

On the other hand, you can also opt for Lily Collins’s long hair style or Doutzen’s style as it gives her a slightly lighter and playful feel.

For an evening look, we can go a little more dramatic and copy Adrian Lima’s old school glamour style, where she slicked back hair looks lovely while walking along the beachside.

And how about sticking to the classic ponytail? Kendall Jenner looked stunning with her updo, which is sure to inspire the 2017 summer hair styles. The lower ponytail is trending lately, and add Elsa Hock’s surfer summer hair to it and we can create some different but easy summer hairstyles.

However, Hailey Baldwin’s tousled bob is on the bets to set the hairstyle of the summer! Stay tuned…

WHY IS THE SKIN AROUND EYES SO FRAGILE?

One of the leading 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!

PRESERVATION OF THE PERIORBITAL REGION

Periorbital region is very delicate. What are you doing to protect your skin around your eyes? Skin protection is at the core of my anti-ageing strategy. A good SPF and antioxidant is a must for DNA repair, through a combination of a retinoid and AHA (alpha hydroxyl acids). These two substances are the Holy Grail ingredients to decrease the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

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

First, it is essential 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. Still, 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!

Suffer from dark circles and puffy eyes?

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 for crow’s feet has become an effective solution for softening wrinkles around the eyes. Still, 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 for crow’s feet to solve wrinkles around the eyes is when wrinkles are still very thin so that the process can be as efficient as possible.

Injection Botox in this 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 the injection has been done.

When wrinkles are more pronounced, I use a combination of Botox and derma fillers. I never inject Botox for around the eyes 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.

BEST SUNSCREEN FOR YOUR FACE SKIN AND AROUND YOUR EYES

With so many sunscreen options out in the market, it is easy to be confused and bewildered by the amount of choice we have! However, we don’t necessarily always choose the best option for our skin, which is why my tips can help you find the best sunscreen! It is important to apply sunblock protection in two ways; by loading the skin with antioxidants first, and then applying for an effective sunblock protection with SPF30 and natural melanin.

EYEBROW LIFT WITH BOTOX

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

Some muscles depress the brow, and muscles that lift the brow. By using Botox, we can reduce muscle activity from the muscles that depress the brow and manage to give it a slight elevation. Each individual requires different assessments 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 an excellent non-surgical brow lift option. However, there are limits on how much brow can be raised.

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 also 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?

TIPS TO PREVENT & GET RID OF SUNKEN EYES

As we know, sunken eyes are a very common condition that affects us in our ageing process. The causes range from stress, dehydration, poor diet, and lack of sleep, among other things. I will, therefore, give home remedy tips to help us make our eyes beautiful, get rid of sunken eyes, and enjoy clear, bright eyes.

However, sunken eyes are not always due to tiredness or unhealthiness. They also appear on young and healthy individuals. Some home remedies are capable of getting rid of sunken eyes, start first with the right amount of sleep! It can be tempting to stay up on our phones and get carried away with social media and late-night messaging. But these habits stop us from sufficient sleep time and are best to be done during the day.

Some home remedies reduce under-eye darkness and can complement sunken eyes treatment. Potato and cucumber slices can be used to cover your eyes for a few minutes daily. Also, using cold or warm teabags on our eyes for a few minutes help blood circulation around the eyes. They effectively help reduce dark circles.

Also, It is vital during the day to drink a lot of water and decrease our alcohol consumption in the evening. Complementing that with a healthy diet with plenty of greens and leafy vegetables such as spinach and broccoli will also keep your skin and eyes in good health!

Follow these simple home remedies for moderate sunken eyes; otherwise, have a consultation to find out more about Dermal fillers and how we can help with sunken eyes in south west London with Dr. Fern!

TIPS FOR HEALTHY BEAUTIFUL EYES

Tips for beautiful, healthy eyes

One of the essential tips on how to make beautiful eyes lies in the active care of our eyes, to stop problems such as infections. It is why I have assembled the top 6 health tips on our road to achieving beautiful eyes:

  1. Every three months, we should throw away our eye make-up. Especially in creamy or liquid eye make-up, bacteria grow quickly and can give you infections.
  2.  If you do experience an eye infection, you should immediately throw away all your eye make-up.
  3. You should never share your eye make-up as you can contract infections from others.
  4.  When you sample make-up in stores, make sure you only use sanitised or fresh samples. You want to avoid samples that may be contaminated by other users.
  5. If you are prone to allergies, it is a good idea to add makeup to your collection once at a time. It will allow you to determine which one is causing any allergic reactions that you might develop. Doctors can also help you more once they know what ingredients you are allergic to
  6.  And lastly, make sure you avoid untested products that are not from a reputable brand. Natural ingredients are usually the best!

Follow these tips and get the beautiful eyes that you deserve, and call today to find out more about which facial treatments in south west London will suit your needs the best with Dr Fern!
