Summer Skin Savers

The summer weather is certainly upon us and that’s so exciting, however one thing that we can’t forget about during this blissful time is our skin. When the weather gets warmer and our days get longer we all tend to be a little more relaxed with our lifestyle, but keeping your skin protected and well maintained is still vital.

 
If you love to enjoy the blissful summer warmth then here are a few tips to keep your skin safe.

 
SPF: Sun screen is vital to protect your skin from burning, premature ageing, sun spots and other damage. While it is important to wear an SPF all year round, the summer time is when we need to really amp it up. Wearing a beauty balm or primer with SPF in it will help to protect your face, but don’t forget to cover your body too!

 
Hydration:  It may sound standard, but it’s surprising how many people forget. Staying hydrated is so important for your skins maintenance, as well as general health. When the weather gets warmer and we are busier we often don’t drink as much water as we should. Carrying around a 1.5ml bottle of water and trying to get through it during the day is a great way to keep your hydration levels in check. If it’s with you all day you are more likely to drink more.

 
Exfoliate: Our skin can get dry during the summer with all the swimming, fake tanning and other activities we undergo. Exfoliating the skin will ensure a smoother and more even complexion. Additionally it will help to rid the skin of any excess dead skin cells and give a beautiful and healthy glow. We recommend the ZO Offects Exfoliating Polish- available within our Bondi Junction clinic.

 
Eat Clean:  Eating clean and healthy foods is important in the summer to maintain your health from the inside out. Fruits such Grapefruits have some great benefits which are perfect for inner well-being.  Grapefruits in particular are high in antioxidants, rich in vitamin C, reduce inflammation in the body, boost our immune systems and can even aid in weight loss.

Skin Needling- How It Works

What exactly is micro-needling and why would one do it? With so many different cosmetic procedures coming up all the time, it can be hard to know what is worth trying and what isn’t.
Micro-needling, also known as skin needling, has been growing in popularity over the last few years. While it is mostly a procedure that is performed on the face, micro-needling can actually be performed on other areas of the body such as hands, neck and décolletage.

There are many benefits that come from undergoing micro-needling, from treatment of acne scars and signs of ageing to pigmentation and sun damage.  Due to the penetration of the needle into the skin, a carefully control injury is caused below the skins surface. This induces collagen to grow and results in a thicker, plumper looking skin, with reduced fine lines and better skin tone.

With micro-needling the top layer of the skin is not removed, like with other procedures such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion, yet a deeper penetration is still achieved. Scars that are fairly indented into the skin can benefit greatly from micro-needling due to the collagen production pushing up and plumping the skin, which reduces the scars depth. Micro-needling can also be a fabulous alternative for those with a darker skin tone, as there is less risk of pigmentation.

The treatment normally lasts up to an hour and a half, including the time allowed for numbing cream to set in. While every individual’s skin reacts differently to treatments, it is recommended to allow up to 5 days for total turn around after the treatment.   Approximately 4 treatments are recommended for optimal results.

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 8599 7161 to book.

The Treatment That Does It All

Light Stim- Light Therapy

When it comes to skin treatments in a clinical environment, not all procedures need to be painful to work well. Our daily routines can cause stress which can affect our skin in many ways and sometimes you just need to be rejuvenated. Light therapy is an ideal way to achieve that relaxed and revitalized feeling that also has some great benefits for the body.
Light therapy is an LED light that is non-invasive, has no damaging effects of harsh UV rays and shows fast and effective results. Light Stim works to stimulate collagen, is anti-ageing and has qualities that relieve pain and can accelerate healing. The treatment also benefits the body by increasing blood circulation and oxygenation, as well as minimising pores and wrinkles.

For clients with uneven skin tone, Light Stim helps to visibly improve the tone of the skin and overall complexion. It is recommended to undergo multiple sessions for optimum results, usually a minimum of 4. The treatment lasts for 20 minutes, beginning with the therapist performing a light cleanse, after which you will relax under the light. Aftercare consists of applying an SPF to the skin and then you’re all set to go.

Light Stim can be used in conjunction with other treatments such as:

  • Surgery
  • Laser/IPL
  • Injectables
  • Microneedling
  • Diminishes bruising and swelling

Rise of Cosmetic Surgery in the Younger Generation

In recent years, cosmetic surgery has been on the rise within Australia according to the Australian Society of cosmetic Surgeons. A recent poll has seen Australia spend more on Cosmetic Surgeries per 10,000 people than America. Another figure to come out of these studies is the increase of younger clients, 30 and under, to go under the knife, driving the demand for procedures such as breast augmentation, Rhinoplasty, nose jobs in women and breast reduction in men. So what is causing this increase?
