Why Autumn is the perfect time for aesthetic treatments

In order to maximise the results from cosmetic surgery, it’s important to plan according to the season and your schedule. Whilst tweakments are easy to squeeze in here and there throughout the year, if you’re planning anything more heavy-duty, the autumnal season provides the perfect storm of elements to achieve top results and a discreet and comfortable recovery. Here are some treatments we recommend taking advantage of during the sweater weather. 

 

  1. Laser hair removal – If you’re looking for a more permanent solution for unwanted facial hair or excess body hair, laser hair removal is the perfect option. A course of treatments to fully destroy the follicle can leave the skin temporarily sensitive to sunlight and you may experience some redness and irritation immediately after. For exposed skin areas such as legs, arms and face, consider starting the treatment in September.
  2. Tummy tuck – A tummy tuck scar takes between several months to a year to fade. Logistically, the autumn months are the only time to undergo the procedure, if you want to maintain your winter holiday and summer lifestyle. Baggy sweaters hide the post-op compression bandages and scars will fade in time for your summer holidays. 
  3. Chemical peels – This glow-tastic treatment is the go-to option for anyone suffering from lacklustre, dull, lined facial skin. It supercharges skin rejuvenation. The only drawback is that two weeks downtime is needed to recuperate after the peel procedure, and sunscreen is a necessity for at least three months after the treatment. The longer nights and darker days during winter offer the perfect opportunity to hunker down and recuperate.
  4. Breast augmentation – Clients often find the colder months preferable to recover from a breast augmentation, as you can discreetly settle into your new enhanced shape from the comfort of sweaters and coats. Undergoing the procedure in the fall also ensures you’ll be on tip-top form for the winter party season. 
  5. Laser skin resurfacing – Laser resurfacing sloughs away the outer layer of dead skin cells to encourage regeneration deep in the skin’s membrane. It’s loved for its ability to eliminate lines and wrinkles. Invest in the autumnal months: recovery will be so much easier due to reduced sunlight. It’s important to protect yourself from the sun during the 3 month recovery period to prevent pigmentation problems. Undertaking it during the autumn months will give you a headstart. 
  6. Brazilian butt lift – Conceal your augmented shape and recover discreetly from a Brazilian butt lift during the cooler, more comfortable autumnal months. Re-emerge for the winter season fully recovered and ready to celebrate the holidays with friends and family.

Dark Circles Under The Eyes & Their Medical Treatment

Dark circles under the lower eyelids are common in men and women. Often accompanied by bags, dark circles can make you appear older than you are. To make the matter worse, they can be difficult to get rid of.

 

Though they can affect anyone, dark circles are most common in people who:

– are elderly.

– have a genetic predisposition to this condition.

– are from non-white ethnic groups (darker skin tones are more prone to hyperpigmentation around the eye area).

 

While fatigue may seem like the most logical explanation for this condition, there are a number of factors that can contribute to dark circles under the eyes. In most cases, there are no causes for concern and do not require medical attention.

What causes dark circles?

 

Fatigue – Oversleeping, extreme fatigue, or just staying up a few hours past your normal bedtime can cause dark circles to form under your eyes.

Age – Natural aging is another common cause of those dark circles beneath your eyes. As you get older, your skin becomes thinner.

Eye strain – Staring at your television or computer screen can cause significant strain on your eyes. This strain can cause blood vessels around your eyes to enlarge. As a result, the skin surrounding your eyes can darken.

Allergies – Allergic reactions and eye dryness can trigger dark circles. When you have an allergic reaction, your body releases histamines as a response to harmful bacteria

Dehydration – Dehydration is a common cause of dark circles under your eyes. When your body is not receiving the proper amount of water, the skin beneath your eyes begins to look dull and your eyes look sunken.

Sun overexposure – Overexposure to the sun can cause your body to produce an excess of melanin, the pigment that provides your skin with color. Too much sun, particularly for your eyes can cause pigmentation in the surrounding skin to darken.

Genetics – Family history also plays a part in developing dark circles under your eyes. It can be an inherited trait seen early in childhood and may worsen as you age or slowly disappear.

 

Medical Treatments

 

For a more effective and permanent solution, some medical treatments are available to reduce the appearance of dark circles. Some of the more common methods include:

1. Chemical peels to reduce pigmentation.

2. Laser surgery to resurface the skin and enhance skin tightening.

3. Medical tattoos to inject pigment into thin skin areas.

4. Tissue fillers to conceal blood vessels and melanin that are causing skin discoloration beneath your eyes.

5. Fat removal to remove excess fat and skin, revealing a smoother and more even surface.

6. Surgical implants of fat or synthetic products.

 

Before deciding on any cosmetic procedure, discuss your options with a doctor. Invasive medical treatments can be expensive, painful, and often require long recovery time.

Derma Roller – What Every Woman Over 40 Should Know

Why should we need a Dermaroller?

It’s an ancient skin needling technique that can help prevent aging of your skin, smooth out scars and pitted skin, as well as stretch marks, and restores collagen. It’s simple and easy to use. As we get older, our skin does not produce enough collagen and elastin. Thus, our skin becomes more prone to wrinkles as our skin becomes thinner.

The needles on the skin roller create tiny punctures in the upper layer of the dermis. It is a common knowledge that the human body reacts to any injury by triggering a natural wound healing process. In the case of micro needling, it is the same process but no blood is involved. With the use of a roller, your skin is being stimulated to go through a process called skin regeneration.

This happens with the help of microneedles which penetrate into the top layer of skin where they trigger your skins natural collagen building. And this is how the derma roller works to bring a youthful glow and tightness back to your skin. The release of growth factors is created by the damage which causes the production of collagen and elastin. Our bodies naturally react to any injury with a natural wound healing process.

You can experience this process of remodeling for up to 12 months after each treatment. Skin needling can be performed safely on all types of skin. There is no risk of pigment change or post inflammatory hyperpigmentation because the epidermis is left intact.

Skin micro-needling can treat sensitive areas that other treatments have to avoid, such as below the eyes, the neck and the back of the hands.
