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.

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.

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.
