Bridal Beauty Countdown: Start getting ready for your big day, today!

Every woman wants to look wonderful on her wedding day but, to strike the perfect pose for those pictures that will last a lifetime, it pays to prepare early.

Here are our tips for putting your best face forward, whether you’ve got 2 or 12 months before you walk down the aisle.

 

12 months out.

 

  • Get camera perfect. Create the very best version of you for a great wedding album – use the latest Dermal Fillers to contour your facial features. It’s easy to enhance your natural look by making subtle changes to your jawline, chin or cheeks. Try this 12 months out to make sure you get the optimal effect.

 

  • Stop wigging out.  Adrenal fatigue caused by too much stress can impact your appearance as well as your health. If you’re run off your feet trying to get everything done, get into the habit of writing down a daily to-do list and tick things off as you go along to make you feel calmer and on track. Exercise is perfect for reducing stress and it doesn’t matter what kind you do. Go for a quick walk around the block or work up a sweat at the gym – you’ll be amazed how much better you feel.

 

  • Say a few ‘oms.’ Taking the time to quiet your mind by meditating for 15-20 minutes each day does wonders for your state of mind and your inner glow during the busy lead up to your big day. These days it’s easier than ever to get into the habit with guided meditations from beginners to gurus available in your favourite app store.

 

  • Super healthy skin. Boost the health of your skin with a range of treatments with no downtime needed – or book 3-4 treatments ahead of your wedding day for best effect. Banish breakouts, minimise pores hydrate and smooth your face, neck and décolletage with our Carbon Laser Facial. Get a peel to refresh and revive your skin or try our Beauty Booster to leave your skin feeling and looking gorgeous. Check out our Full Dec Special coming this November – it’s a great way to kick-start a new, beautiful you.

 

  • Moisturise from within. Dehydrated skin is ultra ageing. It makes your skin dull and encourages make-up to congregate in your wrinkles and pores, leaving you looking cracked and lacklustre.  Do your skin a favour – start your hydration regime from within by drinking 8 glasses of water a day (more during summer and exercise). Sleep dehydrates, so remember to cleanse your body as soon as you wake up with 2 glasses before coffee, then another 2 before lunch. Add a good squeeze of half a lemon and a pinch of mineral salt for extra cleansing benefits.

8 weeks out.

 

  • Smooth out your frown lines. It’s time to get serious about lines so your bridal make-up won’t show them up. If you have deep, permanent lines, think about getting a Dermal Filler Treatment 5-6 weeks out before your wedding day or a muscle relaxant treatment to smooth out your skin and make you look younger.

 

  • Banish redness. You can reduce unwanted pigment, skin discolouration and redness while simultaneously boosting your collagen with IPL &/or Laser Treatments. The best thing is that both feature minimum downtime, so you can have a treatment closer to your big day.

 

  • Most importantly, have fun. Choose activities and treatments you enjoy – the key to a blissful lead up to your wedding is to pamper yourself. Try a range of different things such as Infrared Sauna, Float Tank or Cryotherapy sessions to encourage a healthy mind and body.

 

24 hours out.

 

  • Get some serious shut-eye. Nothing beats a good sleep for making you look fresh and well-rested. Take the time to get 8-10 hours of sleep the night before – we promise you’ll feel ready to take on the world.

Safe and effective for ALL types of Acne

 

Cleansing:

Carbon has the ability to absorb oil and contaminants from deep within the pores. When the laser is passed over the treatment area it targets and destroys the carbon particles, taking any absorbed material with it.

Exfoliating:

As the carbon is targeted by the laser, it blasts away dead skin cells, blackheads and effectively exfoliates the skin. The result is softer, radiant skin with reduced pore size and a more even skin tone.

Rejuvenating:

Carbon peels also target the deep layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production, which in turn produces firmer, plumper skin, reduces fine lines and wrinkles and leaves skin feeling tighter and glowing.

Acne and Oil Destroying:

The heat produced by carbon peels has 2 additional benefits. It reduces the P.Acnes bacteria responsible for acne, allowing for better management of pimples and outbreaks, and it also shrinks sebaceous glands (oil producing glands), resulting in less oil production, and therefore reducing congestion building up in the pores. Treatments can be performed on any part of the body, including the back and chest.

 

As with all skin treatments, carbon peels should be supplemented by a good skin-care routine, and daily use of a high-spectrum sunscreen. Noticeable results can be experienced after a single treatment, but for maximum long-term results, we recommend regular treatments.

 

How does the treatment feel?
It has been described as feeling warm or prickly, but not painful. It assists in leaving the skin looking clear and glowing. A minor ‘sonic’ pulse sound is heard as the carbon particles are targeted by the laser and the light energy is absorbed by the carbon particles.

Is there any downtime?

The procedure is non-invasive and clients can return to normal activities straight after treatment. Clients will need to ensure that they use an SPF 50+ and avoid harsh exfoliants and other abrasive or invasive skin treatments.
The skin can appear slightly red after treatment but that usually disappears within a few hours.
The longevity of the effects from the treatment is determined by the skin condition, skin type and your lifestyle.

Check out the Carbon Laser Facial Treatment in progress….

 

 

How does the treatment works?

When performing the laser treatment, a layer of carbon paste is applied on the entire face and
allowed to dry over a period of 15 minutes. Then, the laser is used to heat and cause an implosion of the carbon particles. The laser light is absorbed by the carbon paste focusing the laser energy on the epidermis. As the laser moves across the skin, the carbon paste is gently vacuumed up, exfoliating the skin and removing any debris in pores. The treatment minimises pore sizes and the thermal effect of the laser beam stimulates collagen renewal. The treatment is comfortable and only a minor sensation similar to pins and needles is felt.

How many treatments are required?  
To achieve optimal results 4-6 treatments are recommended.

Treatments are spaced 2- 4 week apart.  A minimum of 2 weeks after dermal filler or muscle relaxant treatments.

What is the cost for a full face treatment? 

$220 per treatment Including complimentary consultation

Brow Power- The Art of beautiful brows

The art of beautiful brows with Feather Touch eyebrow tattooing.

Thanks to the Kardashians and Cara Delevigne’s gorgeously thick brows, everyone is talking about how to get the perfect ‘fleek’ (i.e. when your brows are groomed, filled and shaped with a perfectly flicked point).
If you’ve kept up with the conversation, you’ll probably well-versed with Feather Touch Tattoo technique. Using a blade each fine micro hair stroke is hand-drawn whilst adding ink into the small incisions, even the most brow challenged can have natural looking, luxurious, and perfectly fleek brows in next to no time!

We asked our Cosmetic Tattoo Artist, Holly (owner & founder of cosmetic tattoo design) just why this new beauty service is proving so popular with all ages from 18 up.

b clinic: Beautiful natural looking brows can transform and define facial features how do you create this for your clients?

Holly: When deciding on the client’s eyebrow shape there are several factors I need to take into consideration
– Client’s preferences
– Age
– Face Shape & bone structure
– Hair colour & skin tone
– Symmetry or lack thereof
I tailor the brows to suit the individual & to enhance their features.

bc: We’ve noticed that feather touch cosmetic tattoo treatments can actually make our clients look younger. How is this achieved?

Holly: Thin sparse brows can be very ageing. Lifting the tails & adding an arch opens up the eyes giving a fresher appearance.

bc: People’s perception of cosmetic tattooing is changing why do you think that is?

Holly: The techniques & materials have come so far in the last 5-7 years, gone are the days of the old permanent block brows! I think people are seeing the beautiful natural results that are being achieved these days in comparison to the past.

bc: Which cosmetic tattoo services do you specialise in? And do you have a particular favourite?

I specialise in subtle & natural cosmetic tattoo treatments. Enhancing my client’s features & helping them look & feel their best is what I love most about my job. Whether it be eyebrows, eyeliner or lip tattooing I can help you with natural lasting results.

bc: What is the difference between ombre & feather touch brow techniques? And are the results lasting?

Holly: Feather touch brows are created using a manual tool. Lots of fine micro strokes are created to mimic brow hair leaving a natural result.
Ombre brows are created using a machine. The brows are lighter at the fronts & gradually go darker for the perfect ombre fade. The edges are kept soft & once healed will give a powdered in look. This style is perfect for any clients wanting a little more fullness & definition.
I recommend a colour boost every 12-18 months to keep your brows looking fresh. Some clients may require more frequent colour boosts it depends on skin type & lifestyle.

bc: We know you recommend a re-touch treatment at 6- 8 weeks after the initial treatment. Is the re-touch treatment absolutely essential?

Holly: Yes, the retouch appointment is very important whether a big or small adjustment is needed. I tweak any sections where the colour may not have taken & will adjust shape/colour where needed.

bc: And finally, what would you recommend if someone has had a less than satisfying result following a recent a cosmetic tattoo treatment? Can anything be done to correct a bad result?

Holly: Correcting previous cosmetic tattooing can be a challenge & the results cannot be guaranteed. I would recommend having a complimentary tattoo removal consultation with one of our b clinic skin consultants. I feel that laser is the best option as that way we can start fresh & your end result won’t be compromised.

RANT: Does the pursuit for beauty ever end?

Cut and colour, mani, pedis to brow sculpts; spray tans to wrinkle treatments and the list could go on and on.

I have recently paused long enough to question why my beauty regime list so long, is it all really necessary and who am I doing this all for?

Is it for me or is it for them? Them being – everyone I know outside of myself, and all of those who I am yet to know.

I have to be perfectly honest; it’s for me and… a little for them. I like to look my best no matter what my age and another truth confession, I like being pampered.

 

When it comes to dealing with the signs of ageing, my intention has always been to erase the past, look fresh in the present and preserve for the future. And, of course, look as natural as possible, while making it look completely effortless.

Perhaps having needles in my face isn’t the most pampering of all treatments but I can’t deny that I love my smooth appearance that follows an injectable procedure.

 

I’ll never forget the line from the character Samantha from the TV series Sex and the City when she says, “Now Botox, that you can count on”. As soon as I heard it, I thought she’s so right, injectable treatments have worked a treat to help me look fresh, even when I am struggling to juggle my hectic schedule of kids, work and newly dating.

 

Although sometimes it’s a matter of priority and some beauty treatments do not seem as critically needed as other times. Perhaps that’s just how my mind works or maybe that’s how my budget dictates.

 

It’s interesting though when my budget hasn’t allowed for me to participate in my normal “beauty treatments with benefits” my inner guru (plus my new self-help book) has taught me that feeling good is indeed an inside job. And as I am growing (not ageing – just evolving) I have slowly, but not entirely, stopped relying on conditions outside of myself – (my appearance being a major one, but not confined to that alone) to dictate how I feel about myself.

 

I have also experienced the free beauty and health benefits of creating good feelings – in spite of what is going on in my life. It continually surprises me that when I am focused on feeling good I tend to receive more compliments from others, even total strangers seem to look at me more. Perhaps that’s due to the big smile I am confidently wearing.

 

However, I do remind myself although I can enjoy and readily accept compliments, I don’t need to rely on them to make me feel good, as that is just another conditional trap.

I’d like to thank you for reading my rant and I would like to leave you with some key takeaways to consider:

  • Don’t let your appearance have the biggest impact for the way you feel about yourself or your life.
  • Feeling good definitely can assist you looking more beautiful and add to you feeling more confident, which allows you to seek new opportunities when they present themselves and when your feeling good about yourself, they will definitely come.
  • If your budget allows for it, then definitely seek out any beauty treatment that will compliment you feeling good and it may just assist you being the best version of yourself on the outside.
  • Just remember you are already great, beautiful, talented, loved and lovable… just the way you are, our outside appearance is just icing on the cake – (you’re the cake, not the icing).

 

Just feel and you will be… Love Miss b xoxo

Considering lip fillers? Here’s the 10 things you need to know.

If Kylie Jenner’s post lip filler look is making you wonder how good your pout would be a little plumper, softer and more sensual, there’s a few things you should know.

Dermal fillers can certainly improve your smile and freshen your look, but it’s important to understand that one size never fits all – what works for Kylie might seem completely out of place on your face.
So, the first rule of getting a lip treatment is that you should always please yourself – because not everyone will agree with your changed look.

Whether you want big luscious lips or something a little more subtle and natural looking, here’s our ten-point guide to getting a great result:

1. Don’t shoot for the stars. Yes, Kylie and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s pouts are really in right now. But does that mean you should follow their example? Our practitioners will start
by asking what kind of look you’re after then give you advice about how you can achieve your dream lips based on your what’s best suited for your face.
It’s important to understand that you’re unlikely to get your desired effect in just one treatment – it’s best to increase the size of your lips gradually over 2-3 treatments to create a longer lasting, more natural effect with fewer complications.

2. Plan ahead Most people experience some swelling and possibly bruising after lip augmentation – this is completely normal and can take between 24-48 hours to settle down.
So if you’ve got a big event or special occasion coming up, it’s probably best to make your appointment 2 or 3 weeks before so you can look your stunning best and avoid any negative opinions by others.

3. Cruising for no bruising. Prevention is always better than cure. To avoid bruising, around ten days before your procedure you should avoid blood thinners like painkillers, fish oil and Vitamin E, which promote bruising and bleeding.

Having said that, you might not bruise at all. But if you do, it should fade after five to seven days. The good news is, using Hirudoid Cream or Arnica ointment (or tablets) can also help speed up or avoid the bruising process.

4.How to avoid the ugly and painful. Any trauma to your lips can trigger a cold sore, so if you’re prone to these, make sure you take preventative medication two days before the procedure.

5.What happens when you stop having lip augmentation treatments or the product wears off? Never fear, your skin will return to its natural, pre-treatment state. If you decide against further injections, it will be just as it was before augmentation – so if you had a wrinkle before your treatment, it’ll be there again when the product wears off.

And the treatment won’t cause any more wrinkles than you already had, so that’s good news. In fact, some products stimulate new collagen growth, which may lead to long-lasting improvements in your skin’s volume, even after the injected dermal filler has been absorbed by your body.

6.Don’t like the effect? Reverse it. Dermal fillers have come a long way – and most treatments are reversible. In fact, almost all of the injectable products we use at b clinic are non-permanent – and that’s just the way we like it. Even if you love the results of your treatment, your face changes as you age and we’ll need to reassess your treatment strategy, as a result to keep you looking naturally good.

Remember, your body will naturally break down and absorb the filler over time; so all treatments are ultimately reversible. But if you want a quick reversal, we can inject you with an ‘antidote’ immediately – no harm, no foul.

7.Should I? Shouldn’t I? If you’re not sure, you don’t have to go for a full lip enhancement. Many of our clients are opting for our lip refresher treatment – it’s less obvious but still, a very effective way to treat the signs of ageing in your lip area.

8.Bigger ain’t always better. Large lips don’t suit every face – it’s just a fact of life. And, let’s face it, it’d be boring if we all looked exactly the same. We’ll help you work with your own distinctively beautiful facial features so even smaller lips look sexy.

9.How to make smaller, thinner lips sexier. Enhancing your cupid’s bow with highlighter then kicking up the corners of your lips can give you an instant lip lift. If you need to, use a lip pencil to add extra volume to your lip body – but keep it subtle and remember to blend, blend, blend!

10.Big gains without big pain – what to expect. Hate pain? So do we! Lip filler injections are minimally invasive and over in just minutes. By using a very thin needle, even sensitive areas like the lips can experience minimal to no discomfort.

b clinic lip fillers are blended with a local anaesthetic to cut down on injection pain, plus we can apply a topical anaesthetic to numb your skin. If you’re really pain sensitive, your b clinic practitioner might also give you a local anaesthetic injection before your treatment. This significantly reduces the amount of discomfort you’ll experience during your lip augmentation.

After a treatment, the local anaesthetic will probably make your lips feel numb for about 20 minutes. You can cut down this time by moving your mouth regularly to make the anaesthetic wear off more quickly. Afterwards, it’s normal to have tender lips for a day or two.

A new you in under 30 minutes: Enhance your look and your life with these three transformative treatments.

At b clinic, we understand that looking & feeling terrific helps you be at your best, giving you the confidence to make the most of each and every day!

Just a decade ago, if you wanted to make a positive change to enhance your appearance, you’d have to work really hard – either through rigorous dieting, exercise or submitting to often painful, invasive operations that sometimes achieved less than satisfactory results.

Thankfully, today’s new beauty treatments give you the power to make instant, long-lasting and satisfying changes to your appearance in less than 30 minutes – you can literally change your life and the way you look in your lunch break or the time it takes to order and drink a cup of coffee!

Here’s our three most popular treatments to try for great results in under half an hour. Start the clock…

 

Life Changing Treatment #1: Cheek enhancement.

If you’re feeling less than thrilled with your cheeks these days, dermal fillers are your saving grace. Injected into your cheeks to improve volume, increase definition and make them look fuller or less saggy, this treatment has become more popular lately with celebrities everywhere admitting to having it done.

Cheek enhancement subtly improves your cheek profile, making you look just like yourself, only more beautiful. It’s ideal for creating glamorous cheekbone definition and youthful contours whatever your age.

As you age, your cheeks become hollow as the fat pad beneath the cheek area begins to fall. This safe, quick procedure achieves instantly visible results, making you look and feel better by lifting and restoring volume to the middle of your face, enhancing hydration and ironing out superficial lines and wrinkles.

Better still, you can have it done in your lunch break and go straight back to your normal daily activities a new you! (But be careful not to exercise or overheat for a couple of days). You’ll feel more confident in your appearance instantly.

What to expect: Your practitioner ask you what you want to achieve and examine your facial features. If you’re a suitable candidate for cheek enhancement, they’ll then create an individual treatment plan designed to achieve the best possible results. Discover more.

 

Life Changing Treatment #2: Tear trough treatment.

If people are constantly asking you whether you feel OK or if you’ve had enough sleep, it’s probably a good bet you suffer from under eye hollowing.

Some people are just born with less fat in the depressions running from the nose to under-eye area but age also takes its toll. Because the skin there is quite thin, it shows the signs of ageing sooner than elsewhere on your face, creating sagging, bagging and darkening under your eyes that makes you look older and more tired than you really are.

Once upon a time, if you suffered from tear troughs (particularly those caused by genetics), you were stuck with them. You could try to hide them by layering on concealer and makeup but ultimately they’d still show through. Now dermal fillers have transformed your options, making you look instantly refreshed and more youthful in 30 minutes or less with absolutely no downtime.

What to expect: Your b clinic practitioner will inject dermal filler above your eye socket bone then massage it into the fatty tissues underneath your eye, filling up the depression under the skin. Your tear troughs will appear immediately plumped and dark circles will be reduced. Discover more.

 

Life Changing Treatment #3: Petit Lady vaginal rejuvenation.

Giving birth and the ageing process can have lasting physical effects on your body and your self-confidence, including the vaginal canal. Two of the most common complaints are lifelong stress incontinence and vaginal laxity. Luckily, there’s now something you can do about both problems that’s non-invasive and takes around  30 minutes.

A safe treatment with minimal discomfort or downtime, if you suffer from incontinence and laxity it could totally transform your life. You’ll notice great improvements after just one treatment, including an improvement in your sex life, more confidence in the bedroom and the ability to exercise without worrying about bladder leakage.

What to expect: You will likely see and feel results after the very first treatment. Women have reported a renewed sense of confidence, happiness and a greater satisfaction in both their sexual life and life in general. For long lasting results, we recommend 3 treatments. Discover more.

Take the first step to a more confident you today. Book a 30-minute or less treatment that might just change your life now.

 

How To Look Fantastic Whatever The Season

 

If being able to look fresh &  fabulous at the drop of a hat is what you want, we’re here to help!

 

Here at b clinic, our team’s fond of saying we want you to “be camera ready all year round.”

Just as we don’t subscribe to fad diets or exercising your heart out just before beach season or a special occasion. The best bods and beauty routines aren’t last minute – they take consistency, dedication and a desire to be healthy every week of the year.

Actually, we’re seeing current health trends catch up with this idea at the moment, with clients committing to long term health plans to keep them looking good permanently – not just for summer.

And the extra confidence that comes with a healthy body is also spurring an acknowledgement that you need to keep up appearances more regularly, too – more clients are booking routine makeovers and treatments throughout the year.

Fresh. Youthful. Revitalised.

We all want to be the very best versions of ourselves. But the real key to looking great whatever your age is simple: take some time to look after yourself and your skin on a daily basis.

Active skincare is a great way to keep your skin smooth and rejuvenated. Our own b skin range is designed to make a remarkable difference to your skin’s condition – even slowing down the visible effects of ageing.

Don’t leave beauty to the last minute

Once upon a time, we’d see clients coming in just a month (or a few days!) before their special event expecting a miracle that would leave them looking wonderful.

What they didn’t realise is that snap bingeing on a huge cosmetic treatment at the last minute ends up costing far more in the long run and the effects may not last as long (or worse, make it more obvious you’ve had something done).

It’s much better to tweak your appearance a little each time throughout the year than place all your bets on a big, expensive treatment that may not achieve the effect you were after.

For instance, treatments that can boost your look without any obvious signs you’ve had a treatment include:

  1. Beauty boosters. Improve your skin’s glow and elasticity by boosting hydration to make you look firmer and more youthful.
  2. Muscle relaxants. Don’t look older than you feel – these treatments can relax, soften and erase wrinkles like crow’s feet, frown and forehead lines without going under the knife.
  3. Picosure skin rejuvenation – More like a results-driven facial, this rejuvenating treatment effectively treats pigmentation, age spots and other skin discolourations while also boosting collagen for a soft, glowing appearance.
  4. Microdermabrasion and light peels. Shed dead skin cells to give your skin an all over softer, smoother luminosity.

And the best thing about each of these treatments? There’s very little downtime, so you can get on with looking your beautiful best right away.

How 3 women boosted their confidence in and out of the bedroom.

 

The latest technology for vaginal rejuvenation – the Action II “Petit Lady” – offers new hope for women experiencing decreased sexual gratification, stress urinary incontinence and a range of other gynecological conditions.

shutterstock_124957796

These conditions can really interfere with your life, emotionally, physically, and mentally – but now you don’t have to consider invasive surgery – in as little as one 30 minute session (we recommend 3 sessions for lasting results) – you can experience significant benefits.

Our clients also say Petit Lady has helped:

  •  Experience more sensation and lubrication, less dryness and pain. Clients report they feel they don’t need to try hard to grip or do pelvic floor exercises to satisfy themselves or their partners.
  • Feel more confident, happy and satisfied. Clients say they have a greater sense of well-being and youthfulness.
  • Feel more empowered to live a full life in and out of the bedroom. No more embarrassing worries about bladder leakage when you sneeze, cough, or exercise. No more avoiding sex because it hurts or feels unpleasurable.

But don’t just take our word for it!

We spoke to three women – Katrina (42), Margaret (50) and Sue (49) – who’ve recently completed this groundbreaking treatment to see how it went for them.

 

Q: What made you decide to get a Petit Lady Laser treatment?

Katrina: With two children over 14 years and since their birth, I’ve always felt I’d like to have a tighter, more sensitive vagina.

 

Margaret: I was actually looking on the web to find help with my pelvic floor muscles and came across the treatment. I had just begun getting mild incontinence and wanted to halt it in its tracks mostly because I had recently started a new relationship. For the same reason, the promise of tightening and improved sensation also appealed immensely to me.

 

Sue: I’d recently had a bad bout of bronchitis – every time I coughed, I’d experience incontinence. I thought it would go away with the bronchitis but it didn’t. It was great to know I didn’t have to have surgery to fix it. I was also intrigued by the promise of an improved sex life and outer appearance.

   

Q. How was your experience at b clinic?

K: The staff is so friendly and informative, it made the decision and treatment so much easier. The female doctor made me feel very relaxed – actually, it’s a bit like a pap smear, there’s no pain and no downtime at all.

 

M: It was super quick – just 30 minutes – and I was so well looked after. I felt comfortable and confident about what was happening at all times – I’m even looking forward to my second treatment and the new benefits it will bring.

 

S: I have to say I was made to feel comfortable immediately, so any anxieties vanished. Everything was explained to me step-by-step so I knew exactly what to expect.

 

Q. How has the treatment changed your life?

K: I’m now through 2 of the 3 recommended treatments and I’m ecstatic with the results! I’m already experiencing heightened sexual gratification, no pain during sex, better bladder control overnight and I feel so much more confidence about my vagina’s appearance.

 

M: I experienced improvement in just 24 hours. All my incontinence symptoms have completely disappeared, which is a great relief. And I’m also a lot more confident being intimate – in fact, I’m experiencing a very satisfying difference in this area!

 

S: I was pretty apprehensive to begin with! But since the first treatment I haven’t had any more incontinence so I’m incredibly happy with the results. Plus my husband and I have noticed a big difference in our sex life.

 

 Q. What would you say to women wondering whether to try Petit Lady Laser Treatment?

 

K: Do it! Don’t wait! It’s quick and easy and you’ll start to feel results after the very first treatment.

 

S: I’d happily recommend Petit Lady to anyone suffering similar issues to me.

 

M: I wholeheartedly recommend this treatment to any beautiful lady!!

Our top 5 tips to get your look on track for this year’s racing season.

Time flies, doesn’t it? It doesn’t seem that long ago you were celebrating the 2015 Melbourne Cup racing season – and now here you are, turning your attention once again to matching those fiendishly feathery fascinators to your favourite frock.

The key to stunning the crowd at race celebrations is to keep everything looking elegantly simple. And that means you shouldn’t leave all your primping to the last moment – all that perfection takes time, ladies! So here’s our top 5 beauty tips to check off your list:

 

  1. Go Highbrow. Nothing beats a perfectly arched brow to set off your outfit. Book in for a brow sculpting session well in advance, so you can give your brow artist time to work her magic. But if your brows are less than stellar, there’s new hope on the horizon. Feather Touch Brow tattooing helps even those seriously challenged in the brow department can have natural looking, luxurious, and perfectly fleek brows that no one will be able to guess aren’t your own.
  2. Smooth and Erase. For flawless selfies, target those wrinkles now with one of our muscle relaxant treatments. Non-invasive and non-surgical, it’s the ideal way to look younger without going under the knife. Unwanted frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines disappear, leaving your skin silky smooth and the perfect base for an all-day foundation.
  3.  Details Count. Don’t overlook your manicure and pedicure – you don’t want to come to the party dressed to the nines and then realise your nails are chipped and forlorn.
  4. Book a manicure the day before or the morning of the big event. Race day etiquette suggests no super long talons – think a ladylike medium length with square/round tips. Choose a shade that compliments your outfit, or if in doubt, a pretty pastel pink works well with everything. If you’re feeling bold, fire red makes a serious statement.
  5. Get Your Glow On. Give your skin a flattering glow with an all over spray tan a few days before the big day. But don’t go overboard – this is not the venue for dark, heavy fake tans! Remember, the look is Melbourne springtime, so those ladies haven’t seen the sun for very long!
  6. Colour Pops. Complete your race day look with a brand new luxury lipstick in a bold colour – experts predict we’ll be seeing a lot of strong pinks and fuchsias this spring carnival.

Blueberries: Harnessing Natures Antioxidant Superpower

There are over 1100 types of Free Radicals in our daily surroundings, from sources such as airborne emissions, sunlight, pollution, fatty foods and alcohol. Exposure to these free-radicals can lead to fraying and frumping of elastin layers in the dermal layer of the skin. When the elastin fibres in the skin are degraded they can cause fine lines, wrinkles and deep creases as collagen deterioration occurs.  Fighting these free-radicals and staying fresh starts from within with the right knowledge of the best antioxidant rich foods. One of the best foods for fighting free-radicals and improving the aging process is with something that is readily available to us with spring upon us…..blueberries.

What many of us don’t realise is that just one cup of wild blueberries contains 13,427 total antioxidants including vitamins A & C that help neutralize free radicals linked to the development of cancer, cardiovascular disease, and other age-related conditions. A study conducted in the US by WU X Beecher GR & Holden JM on the Lipophilic and hydrophilic antioxidant capacities of common foods in the United States reviewed 24 varieties of fresh fruit, 23 vegetables, 16 herbs and spices, 10 different nuts, and 4 dried fruits and showed that blueberries scored the highest total antioxidant capacity per serving. So it makes sense to incorporate these anti-ageing, plumping little blue gems into our beauty regime.

Taking charge of the positive power of blueberries is as simple as making an appointment with the team at b clinic for a CosMedix Blueberry Smoothie Peel. Combining antioxidant blueberry extract with stimulating L-lactic acid and blue corn meal, the Blueberry Smoothie Peel is a powerful yet gentle exfoliating peel and scrub. This light peel gentle exfoliates away dead skin cells and effectively corrects an assortment of superficial skin concerns, from sun damage to multiple degrees of discoloration.  With research showing that one serving of blueberries is known to contain 25% of your recommended daily vitamin C intake known to help in the production of collagen formation, how can you go wrong?

Beauty For The Modern Woman

Every day the modern woman is getting busier and busier as we try to have it all. Balancing a career, family and social life can be a challenge. So how can we ensure that we find the time to take care of number one whilst managing it all? Keeping up a beauty regime often gets hard when we take too much on, so it is important to establish quick easy routines that help us maintain a youthful healthy appearance.

One of the more popular skincare technologies available today, that allows for minimal down time is skin-revitalising laser treatments, but as each client is different it is important that in consultation with an experienced practitioner you select the right treatment for your own skin type. At b clinic we utilize the Picosure skin revitalisation system with the focus array lens aimed at providing results driven treatments for our clients.

Recent advancements mean that Picosure laser revitalisation is emerging as one of the quickest and easiest skin revitalisation treatments available today, ideal for the busy lifestyle of today’s modern woman. Picosure revitalisation treatments offer a more gentle approach to common skin & ageing concerns such as sunspots, sun damage, pigmentation, acne scarring, poor skin tone & loss of elasticity. This non-ablative laser can treat a variety of areas including the face, chest and hands with little to no downtime.

The Picosure Skin Revitalisation treatment helps stimulate collagen and elastin, which make up the support structure in our skin. As we age, that support structure weakens, forming wrinkles. In most cases subtle improvements can be seen even after just one single treatment. For optimal results we recommend a series of 3-6 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart.

A 30-minute Picosure skin revitalisation treatment at b clinic includes a complimentary post procedure application of Oxygenetix breathable foundation, ideal to camouflage and heal the skin post treatment. So why not pop in in your lunch break and see the team at b clinic for a quick and easy 30min revitalisation treatment and take care of number one.

Why Men love b clinic

You’d be surprised to hear that cosmetic injectable treatments are becoming increasingly more popular with men and at b clinic we love to see men taking care of themselves. Just like women, men know the value in maintaining a fresher appearance. They still want to maintain their masculine features whilst revitalising the face. Muscle relaxants can help target areas such as crow’s feet, frown and forehead lines.

However, when a man considers getting muscle relaxants to refresh their face, there are a lot more factors to consider. Men usually require more product because they have larger facial muscles, than women. Although every client is different generally a larger dose is required to achieve the best result.

So why do men prefer b clinic? Men often come to b clinic because we understand that each client should be treated equally, focusing on the result, charging by the area rather than by the unit. So even though we may use a higher dose of muscle relaxant than those required by a female client, the cost remains the same. This is not a general rule for all clients, and many factors should be considered when discussing your treatment with a practitioner during a free 30min consultation.

We ensure that the best result is achieved with the recommended dosage and offer a free review follow up consultation 2 weeks following your initial treatment. At this stage if more product is required to achieve the optimal result there is no extra charge. At b clinic the end result is the best result.

3 Ways to Treat Stubborn Smile Lines at b clinic

Today, b clinic is going undercover. In accordance with guidelines established by the Therapeutic Goods Administration, we cannot mention by name the specific products we use at our medical cosmetic clinic in Brisbane.

 

But what’s in a name, anyway? It’s the results that count.

 

So in this post, our favourite dermal fillers are all going incognito so we can tell you about them without revealing their true identity. (Mum’s the word!)

b clinic Presents The Best Dermal Filler to Treat Extended Smile Lines

Were you hoping to find the name of a cure-all dermal filler in this section? You won’t. The fact of the matter is that there is no single best dermal filler we can recommend to treat lines around the mouth.

 

Each patient’s physiology and circumstance is unique. At b clinic, we strive to tailor a solution to smile lines that is just as unique. Our skin experts are trained and experienced in the art and science cosmetic injectables. They work with our patients to identify which of the wide range of dermal fillers will be best at providing optimal results.

 

Here are three dermal fillers we use to treat smile lines and “marionette mouth” at b clinic in Brisbane…

Smile Line Solution #1 – A Veteran Dermal Filler & Collagen Producer

Since the dawn of time, we’ve been hunting for a way to iron out the lines that age etches on our faces. One piece of the facial rejuvenation puzzle was solved in 2011 when Scientific American magazine reported on a study published in the Archives of Dermatology:

 

“We found that in addition to filling up space, these injections induce robust production of collagen, thought to give rise to the smooth contour of the skin,” – Frank Wang, clinical research fellow in the dermatology department at the University of Michigan Medical School in Ann Arbor and co-author of the study.

 

The phrase “these injections” refers to a brand of useful dermal fillers that we continue to use today at b clinic today. Why? It’s because collagen is a protein that keeps skin firm and supple, but dwindles with age and sun exposure, causing sagging and wrinkling.

 

Collagen is key to fresh, youthful skin, and these filler injections stimulate collagen production.

 

The No-Allergy-Test Dermal Filler for Treating Smile Lines

The cosmetic medicine industry is always evolving. One step in that evolution was the development of a cosmetic filler comprised of microspheres of a substance that is naturally produced in our bodies, making allergic reactions unlikely. Easy to absorb, it plumps the skin and diminishes age lines around the mouth.

 

The b clinic skin experts have found additional benefits to this specific dermal filler for nasolabial lines. It stimulates natural collagen growth, causing new tissue development for up to two years.

Now Available: The New Filler on the Block

A new family of dermal fillers is now available here in Australia. The formulation cross-links HA (hyaluronic acid) with BBDE (butanediol diglycidy esther). The skin experts at b clinic are especially impressed by this product line’s versatility:

 

  • Smooths away wrinkles and folds at the mouth
  • Volumises lips
  • Softens and reduces lines around the eyes
  • Restores volume and contour to cheeks

 

Our clients like the fact that although the treatment is fast (15-30 minutes on average), the benefits are slow to diminish. Sometimes, depending on the treatment area, the benefits can last as long as 12 months.
