Don’t sweat it, forget it!

Is your confidence compromised by constant and excessive sweating? Anxious about performing the simplest of tasks for the fear of embarrassing sweat stains?

Don’t sweat it, forget it. Excessive sweating, or Hyperhidrosis, can be embarrassing but also easily resolved. The solution is simple – anti-wrinkle injections. While we understand some have reservations about needles, here at Refine Clinic our clinicians take the most refined approach to making you as comfortable as possible.

While 3% of Australians suffer from Hyperhidrosis, there are more recent confirmation that many that affected by hyperhidrosis do not seek medical advice and solutions. This excessive sweating is usually noticed in conditions and stimulants other than heat which can become a detriment to confidence and self-esteem.

Most people affected with hyperhidrosis find that there is a heightened level of anxiety when it comes to performing regular work activities, and the symptoms greatly impact their work and business development. There can be also be a growing frustration and fear undertaking the most simplest of daily activities.

Anti-wrinkle injections are an approved treatment for hyperhidrosis as it relaxes the muscles around the sweat glads, essentially freezing them in place. Refine Clinic is offering a Xmas miracle to those struggling with this social anxiety inducing condition – allowing you to shine confidence in the face of the entire family over the holiday period.

Sweating is a very natural occurrence, there are many catalysts for hyperhidrosis including diabetes, menopause, infection, nerve and heart problems.

General sweating can happen frequently in everyone especially in warm weather or when performing physical activity, sometimes being more noticeable in certain people than others. This excessive sweating does not need to be a part of your anxious conscience. While there are obviously different intestines of sweating, with injectable treatments you no longer have to sweat it. Perform activities, that would usually leave you drenched, dry as a bone.

For a limited time only, treat your excessive sweating for just $1,200 – T&Cs apply.

Regain your confidence and feel like a yummy Mummy once again

Has your body changed after childbirth? We see many women who love being mums, but are keen to restore their bodies through a ‘mummy makeover’. Motherhood is undeniably one of life’s most rewarding experiences’ however it can take a toll on the body with many new mothers experiencing loose skin, Diatasis Recti (abdominal muscle separation), stubborn fat deposits as well as sagging and deflated breast tissue. Mummy makeovers are generally known as a combination of breast surgery and a tummy tuck and are fast becoming the go to choice for a high percentage of women post pregnancy.

 

Mummy makeovers aren’t purely cosmetic as most women view them as corrective procedures. They aren’t trying to look better than they’ve ever looked before, they just want to go back to how they looked before pregnancy, restoring their bodies to what they had.  For example breast reduction, breast lifts and breast augmentations are popular choices for new mums.  The degree of change women experience in their breast tissue can depend on whether they have breastfed, and the duration of their breastfeeding. The longer a woman has chosen to breastfeed, the more dramatic the changes in the appearance of her breasts. For women who have experienced descending breast tissue and some volume loss, a breast lift may be combined with a breast augmentation. If there are no changes in volume, a breast lift may be sufficient.

 

Another area most affected by pregnancy is the abdominal area. As the uterus expands during pregnancy, pressure is placed on the abdominal wall causes both the muscles and skin to expand resulting in laxity. These excess folds of skin can be unresponsive to diet and exercise. Abdominoplasty or a ‘tummy tuck’ allows the doctor to completely remodel the patients’ core and waistline through repair of the muscle separation and the removal of excess skin and fat. This procedure can also be combined with liposuction to achieve optimal results.

 

Liposuction is also popular for new mums in common problem areas that become more prominent post-pregnancy such as love handles, inner and outer thighs.

Rhinoplasty Do’s & Don’t’s

Rhinoplasty, or nose-job, surgery can be one of the more invasive procedures performed. Patients are often surprised that healing and downtime is more lengthy than they expected.

Do’s:
• Take about a week off work
• Sleep upright to minimise swelling
• Prepare for the bruising, black eyes and swelling

Don’t’s:
• Have your surgery before a big event – everyone has different healing lengths, but time your rhinoplasty so you have plenty of time to give your body the best opportunity to recover and heal
• Don’t smoke – smoking inhibits the healing process, causing you to take longer than normal
• Avoid the sun – your skin will be more sensitive than normal
• Avoid heart-raising exercises – for the following 6 weeks, it’s advisable to not participate in any rigorous exercises that increases your heart rate
• Avoid bending down – the change in pressure can be advised against for the first 2 weeks post-op

All You Need To Know About Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation

It is a serious decision to undergo any surgical procedure, however, with lots of information and the correct surgeon the results can be life changing. One of the most popular procedures for women of all ages is breast augmentation. Many factors such as pregnancy, weight changes, age and appearance may cause women to become dissatisfied with their breasts and in these cases breast augmentation may be appropriate. With enhancements in technology and many options available, gone are the days of hard and over the top looking fake breasts. Many women desire fuller, more symmetrical or shapely breasts; this can be easily achieved with a breast augmentation.

At Refine Clinic we offer the German brand of Polytech implants. The density of their shell and non-liquid silicone gel make the shape and feel of the implants very natural. The non-liquid gel used inside the implant makes them a safer and longer lasting option, compared to what used to be on the market years ago.  Although very rare, if the implant were to rupture there is no risk of fluid leakage into the body and the implant would maintain its shape and appearance until it can be removed. The exterior of the implant is somewhat textured by the covering of P-URE foam and is often known as the “furry” implant. This P-URE foam outer shell is known to radically reduce the risk of capsular contracture due to the idea that the foam becomes somewhat combined into the natural capsule created by the body. This environment prevents the hardening and tightening of scar tissue around the implant which can occur when the body recognises the implant as a foreign object. P-URE foam implants are also known to reduce the risk of implant displacement and rotation by creating a velcro like effect, which better supports and stabilises the implant

During your consultation the surgeon will explain the treatment in full and provide options of size, shape and surgical dates which will best suit you. The surgeon will discuss the options for placement of the implant, whether under or over the muscle. Most commonly the incision will be made under the breast, making the scar almost completely invisible.

The results after surgery are instant and recovery time may be up to 6 weeks. The pain level is mild and manageable with small doses of medication prescribed to you by your surgeon.

If you are interested in finding out more about breast augmentations we offer complimentary consultations with our practice manager Manuela- please call 9389 1049 to book.
