Zapping the Zits: What to do about Acne?

As a 35 year old woman, it was embarrassing that I still got acne! I tried so hard to hide it and clear it up, but it wasn’t until I spoke with the TruYou Crew that I learned all the things I thought would help (like daily exfoliation and topical ointments such as tea tree oil) were actually making it worse! Thanks to the girls at TruYou, I now have my acne under control, so thought I would share a bit of information about what to do for your acne… Acne is a skin condition that occurs w...

Hyperhidrosis: Treatment for Excessive Sweating

We all sweat – it’s a natural bodily function and actually a very important one: we need to sweat to regulate body temperature. Sweat glands are concentrated in the palms, soles of your feet and under the armpits. Sweating is how the body cools itself when it gets too hot; for example, when you’re exercising, sick or really nervous. However, some of us sweat much more than is needed… Hyperhidrosis refers to abnormally excessive sweating. In people with Hyperhidrosis, the nerves that...

How much is too much Filler?

People naturally associate a glamorous face with pouty lips, smooth skin, and a well-defined jawline. However, as we grow up (even just into the 20s!), our faces lose collagen, elasticity, and hyaluronic acid, so we start to show our age. Fortunately, modern medical advancements have brought about dermal filler to restore our youthful look at any age. It can almost become addictive to stay so young-looking with filler treatments, so how do you know when it’s too much of a good thing? Let’s t...

All about Dermal Fillers

If I asked you to guess what the most requested filler treatment was, I’m sure most of you would say ‘lip fillers’ and you’d be right! If I asked you what the most frequently made comment was at the time of initial assessment, would you guess it to be ‘please don’t give me a trout pout’? Yes, programmes such as Married at First Sight have got a lot to answer for! Dermal fillers are used primarily to replace fat and bone loss associated with the process of ‘growing up’. Aimed at...

The Beauty of Change

We all experience change. Change is fluid and can be negative or positive. When things change in your life, it can impact on your mental health and well-being. You may even feel out of control in situations that you didn’t expect; however, keeping an open and positive frame of mind may well benefit your mental health! When good or bad change happens in our lives, we need to make an adjustment. In researching for this blog, I found that our outlook on the world affects how we deal with new sit...

All about Brows: Microblading, Combo Brows, Ombré & Powder Brows!

I get asked to explain the differences by almost every client, so I thought I’d share a little about each! Microblading or Feather Touch Brows: tattooed strokes to replicate the natural brow hair. It is best suited for normal skin types, although not suited for thin, dry, dehydrated or thick oily skin types, which may impact the results once healed, as Microblading can expand and blur under the skin, causing ashy or red tones after a few months. ...

We don't age...We 'grow up'!

I believe the process of ‘growing up’ is a very natural one; it begins at conception and continues throughout our lifetime. The way someone ‘grows up’ depends on many things: heredity, physical health, nutrition, mental health, and other external and environmental factors. Believe it or not, some scientists feel that we humans have a built-in “biological clock” which would run for 130 years if no diseases or illnesses affected the body! Imagine that coffee group meeting! But…d...

Vanity vs Sanity?

One of the most common phrases we hear in our clinic is, “am I just being vain?”. Being asked this question so often, prompted me to do a bit of research and confirm that our perspective is one that is shared by many. Our lovely clients are sometimes confused by their own emotions surrounding their appearance; this begs the question, can issues around our appearance affect our wellbeing? We find ourselves guiding them towards the best outcome for their own happiness more often than you think...

All about Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Botulinumtoxin A (or BoNTA for short) is the generic name given to the actual substance injected for anti-wrinkle treatments.  Anti-wrinkle treatment is made by different companies and marketed under a variety of brand names.  While all the injectable anti-wrinkle products contain the same active ingredient (BoNTA), the way they are made differs, as well as how they are injected. BoNTA lasts, on average, for 3 months … which for some people means they get way less than 3 months ...

Fears people have about Cosmetic Tattooing

Considering getting your eyebrows done?As your most important facial feature, it’s well worth making sure they look their best.

The History of Microneedling

Think microneedling is a “new thing” in facial cosmetic procedures? Think again!! Let’s return to Ancient Asia, specifically China, and acupuncture. At the time, no one thought to document the first recorded use so the first proven use of acupuncture is from a book called The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine, dating from 100 BC. The original purpose of acupuncture was to open channels or conduits to allow the Qi (vital energy or life force) to flow. Nowadays, acupuncture is...

New to Appearance Medicine? Here's Our Top Tips for Getting Started.

Everyone’s journey into Appearance Medicine starts differently, for me it was the day I looked in the mirror and felt the image looking back at me was no longer a true reflection of the person I felt myself to be.  It was like it just happened all of a sudden and I didn’t feel great about it. For others I’ve heard things like ‘My kids were always asking me why I was grumpy, or looking so serious when I actually wasn’t’, or ‘People asking why I often look sad when that wasn’t...
