Skin Clarity, texture and health

We all want clear, healthy looking skin however the basics are often overlooked in search of more advanced treatment options. It’s important that we regularly clean the skin by removing the dead layers, activate cellular renewal for a clean, unclogged, clear and refreshed look.

By getting regular Microdermabrasions, Cosmetix Peels, Masks, Needling or PRP you’ll be sure to maintain a clear healthy glow. Microderabrasions and Peels are excellent options all year round although especially beneficial before any event or occasion when you really want to WOW the audience.

Controlled Trauma: Needling – Pen vs Roller

At My Botique, we love any treatment that encourages natural cell regeneration! Similarly to how our muscles build up in the gym after being broken down, creating slight damage or controlled trauma to your skin enables your skin cells to regenerate and grow into healthier cells. This process, known as needling, has become a popular treatment touted as the “it” treatment by beauty editors around the world, although not all needling technique are the same. Many clinics are still using a dermal roller for their needling. These are still effective, however we find them less precise and more prone to unnecessary scratching than the pens.

Roller vs. Pen

The main differentiation between the application types of this treatment is the ability to customise the settings of the needles. The rollers needle depth is set and unable to be customised for each skin area, therefore, making it harder to effectively treat troubled areas.

The automated pen allows for ultimate control for us to treat closer, and deeper to troubled areas as required. The superficial microchannels also allow topical serums such as PRP, Hyaluronic Acid and Growth Factors to be absorbed more effectively into the skin.

New Innovation Technology – How it works

Automated Micro-Needling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine using tiny surgical grade needles to create controlled micro injuries to the skin. This ‘controlled trauma’ promotes regeneration and revitalisation of the skin through the body’s natural healing response. Over time, this treatment works to build healthier, firmer skin cells and stimulate the renewal of your body’s own collagen production through collagen induction therapy.

How often should the treatment be done?

As with all treatments, the recommended amount of treatment varies depending on your skin condition and desired outcome. Your therapist will assess your skin and provide you with a treatment plan to maximise your results. Some patients only require one treatment per year for optimal results, however, a series of three spaced six to eight weeks apart is recommended. For patients with deeper wrinkles, advanced photo ageing, acne scars or stretch marks then six to eight sessions six weeks apart is highly recommended.

What can it treat?

Eclipse Micro Pen can be used on all areas of the body including face, neck, décolleté, hands and body. It is used to regenerate the cells and increase collagen production in the skin for a firmer healthier face with fewer fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment can also improve acne scarring, skin irregularities, hyperpigmentation and stretch marks. In order to minimise your discomfort, a numbing gel is applied to patients skin prior to treatment. Post treatment, slight redness and flaking is expected.

It is important to consider all options of techniques for needling treatments before booking treatment sessions.

Hart 4 Health – The Key To Volume & Hydration

At My Botique, we understand the importance of healthy skin. As most of you are aware, Dermal Fillers can enhance your skin by increasing its volume and definition as well as restoring your youthful glow.

So how does it work?

In order to help your understanding of each of the processes, one area of dermal science has been broken down to aim you in making the right choices for your anti-aging concerns.
Made up of naturally forming sugar proteins called Hyaluronic acid, or HA’s, dermal fillers have become the answer for modern cosmetic medicine. The HA’s are moisture binding ingredients that are stored within stabilized gels to keep them in place at the point of injection, adding volume and structure. By surrounding and nourishing the stretchy collagen fibers within the skin, HA’s restore the skins shape after being stretched.

Anti-ageing is beyond just augmentation; it is a holistic face approach towards healthy youthful looking skin. As we age, skin moisture levels can significantly drop causing the skin to loose its elasticity and therefore exposing signs of ageing. With its unique ability to attract and retain moisture (1000 ml of water per gram of hyaluronic acid) Hyaluronic acid plays a critical role in skin health. Our skin is made up of 64% water, meaning the ability to retain this vital ingredient is key in maintaining a youthful and healthy appearance.
Hyaluronic Acid Replacement Therapy (HART) replaces lost HA to improve hydration whilst adding volume and definition, reducing wrinkles and providing a complete upper and lower face-lift. Treatments can be tailored to satisfy your specific demands such as maximize or limit volume.

Why is it important?

You wouldn’t think twice about replacing calcium for healthy bones, so why not HA for healthy skin? Water is a vital nutrient for the life of our skin cells and lack of hydration can cause dry, tight and flaky skin.

Lip Trends – Bigger, More Defined? We Have All The Answers Covered

We know how popular lip treatments are, and although a plump and full pout is desirable, a lot more goes into making sure it suits the shape of your face

Depending on what the A-listers are currently sporting in Vogue, lip fashion does change, as does the makeup and styling to go with them. While our clients generally focus on increasing the fullness of their lips, it is important to consider what is going on around the lip as well.

Sometimes increasing your lip size can actually accentuate other problem areas on your face, which may have gone unnoticed, leaving you with more obvious wrinkles or depressions. At My Botique, we love to keep up with trends while also offering a total face assessment to ensure we do what’s right for you both now and in the future. It may be that you actually need a lower face enhancement like a 6 or 8-point lift to get the natural long lasting results you desire.

There are a couple of things to consider when searching for the perfect pout:

Symmetry

Most people’s features vary from one side of the face to the other. Working within this balance is important to keep your natural asymmetry symmetrical.

Top and bottom

Balance is the key and one size does not fit all. While we may think a 60/40 or 70/30 split will work for everyone it doesn’t always work that way.

Vermillion border/Cupid’s Bow

You may have plenty of volume already, however, lack definition. Therefore, treating your borders is often the key to enhancing natural volume.

Oral commissures/ DAO muscles

DAO muscles have a downward pulling effect and need consideration. If they are too strong it will create shadowing in your oral commissures and the weight of new lips will only create more hollowing, requiring treatment later. They can be treated with an anti-wrinkle solution and filler while working towards your ideal lips.

Nasolabial folds/ Marionettes

Although marionettes (also known as smile or laugh lines) are usually considered desirable, they can be exacerbated by enhanced lips. If they join with nasolabial folds and create an outer accordion line then that it takes the focus away from the lips and should be considered during the initial consultation.

We also need to think about vertical lip lines, hydration, the mentalis, the cheeks, the mid-face, neck and jaw area and how they relate to your new and desired lips.

So, yes we can make your lips bigger, but it is everything else we do that will make your overall appearance that much better.

Anti Wrinkle Treatments – Soften, Not Freeze! Which is Right for you?

As we age our skin tone can become more uneven and fine lines start to appear. Although ageing is a natural process, it can be accelerated by sun damage, pollution and other lifestyle factors which contribute to the deterioration of the skin’s collagen, the natural protein that helps the skin to remain plump and wrinkle free.

Don’t dismay though… there is a solution! Did you know you can reverse the signs of ageing and recapture your youth with anti-wrinkle injections? My Botique offers preventative solutions for those wishing to reduce fine lines and wrinkles that can last for up to six months!

The Rule

We are cosmetic injection specialists and we take pride in YOUR appearance. We’ve made it our duty to ensure you look your very best in the safest, most natural way possible.
When considering anti-wrinkle treatments, we suggest you go by the two out of three rule. This two out of three guide was designed as a balanced approach for tackling three common dynamic wrinkle areas of your face, leaving natural, beautiful results.

The Effects

The most common areas wrinkles appear are the forehead, frown line, and crow’s feet. When you think about it, these three areas carry a heavy burden as they contain all the muscles used to control our facial expressions. Whether we are constantly smiling, worried, sad, or peeved (or for some of us – all four seasons in one day), these muscles are hard at work and thus, prone to wrinkles.

By limiting treatments to two of these three areas at any one time, your results will reflect a well-balanced, natural look. My Botique recommends altering the combination of treatments throughout the year.

The Results

It’s important to monitor and regulate the different wrinkle zones in a natural and effective way. Anti-wrinkle treatments aren’t a one-trick pony; not only do they reduce wrinkles, they also help contour and sculpt your face. They can even be used to treat hyperhidrosis for those of us who suffer from excessive sweating. A perfect treatment to consider with balmy summer nights just around the corner!
