Anti Ageing – A Vampire Tale – Anti Wrinkle – Halloween

A shadowed moon glittered across the icey lake, as the cold wind carried the lone wolves cry, ’twas to be a long night, with many a fright!
Do you enjoy the dark side? A macabre circus or perhaps literature and poetry from Edgar Alan Po, Byron, Mary Shelly or The infamous Bram Stokers Dracula. What about My Botique?

Now they say that once your bitten, or been ‘turned’ by a vampire you’ll never age and you’ll never die. This is not true, you will age, just that it will be much, much slower.
So one can see the fascination that naturally draws you into anti – ageing medicine, the very concept of being treated with tiny little needless to drastically slow down the ageing process is absolutely amazing. Sounds familiar don’t you think?
Completely mainstream and safe yet with a quick and somewhat quirky  adaptation, one can pretend they walk with the prince of darkness himself, mature, wise, yet ageing imperceptibly as the years move forward.

Now this is all fantasy and fun of course, a play of ideas and nothing more.
The advancement of modern medicine and lifestyle however is keeping us alive a lot longer now than ever before, looking old at 50 when you could possibly be around until your 90 doesn’t seem to make much sense either. With anti – ageing medicine we don’t need ‘real’ vampires to turn us, we can turn ourselves and  slow down the age process to match what is happening with our other physiological changes. Being 40 now means you’re  not even half way through life, so why not look and feel fantastic if you ask me. So if you’re sick of the witches lotions and potions, wasting money at the wishing well, or catching a cold in the fountain of youth. Why not let the Vampires, ooops, I mean nurses at My Botique turn you today!
Happy Halloween!

Pregnant or breastfeeding?

Pregnant or breastfeeding? What treatments can you have?

This is a question we get asked time and time again so we thought it was really important to let you all know the do’s and don’t’s. Being pregnant or breastfeeding are essentially classified as the same thing regarding anti-aging treatments.
Now although there are a lot of treatments you can’t get done , it’s not all doom and gloom.
Let’s start with what you can’t have:

·         Anti wrinkle injections
·         Dermal fillers
·         Laser treatments
·         PRP
·         Numbing gel
Sorry ladies. These treatments for good reason have not been tested on pregnant or breast feeding women and are therefore deemed unsafe, and at My Botique we don’t do them. The health and safety of you and your infant child are the most important thing, but that doesn’t mean you can’t treat yourself and keep your skin looking amazing.
Many of our treatments are completely safe and will help with pigmentation, clarity, hydration and cell renewal which ultimately aids in firmer healthier looking skin with less wrinkles. Coupled with a quality home skin care regime of cosmecueticals and sunscreen will successfully take you through until you’re ready to progress with your anti – aging plan.
Treatments such as:

·         Microdermabrasion
·         Today’s peels
·         Tomorrows peel

We advise that you take the opportunity to build your skin up with Today’s peels until it’s strong enough for more advanced resurfacing and deeply penetrating Tomorrow’s peels!
Micro needling – we can’t use numbing  however setting the pen to a lower depth is tolerable and effective for collagen regeneration and skin tightening.

Combining these treatments throughout the course of your pregnancy and breastfeeding can do wonders for not only your skins health but also your self esteem on those challenging days and nights!
We hope this information help and wish you all the best on your miraculous journey!

If you’re pregant or breastfeeding and would like more information please contact your nearest clinic:

Skin Boosters – Decolletage and Hands

I’ve always been concerned with the skin texture on my decolletage but especially on my hands. I felt as though it really aged me so wanted to finally do something about it. After having a consultation with the Medical team at My Botique I was excited to learn that Skin boosters like Vital could be the answer to my problem! Skin boosters were very easily described to me as being designed to restore hydration in the skin, resulting in long lasting improvements in skin quality and condition.  And that they were based on a hyaluronic acid gel closely resembling your body’s own which didn’t sound too scary to me! Turns out that we are continually losing these valuable HA’s every year so replacing them as part of a balanced treatment plan is really important.So after a nice long consultation with the Registered Nurse and having  numbing cream applied to the areas, I was ready to proceed with the treatment. Twenty minutes later, I was done! I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised with the minimal discomfort throughout the whole treatment and will be excited to see the end results after about 2 to 3 weeks! Anyone with the same concerns, I can highly recommend you give skin boosters a go, and what made it even better was that I got 2mls for $590. I have shopped around and no other clinic was doing it for such a great price! Now that we’re coming into summer I definitely won’t be afraid to have my decolletage or hands on show anymore!!
