Luxury Collagen Youth Infusion Facial at Vellalure Skincare and Permanent Cosmetic Clinic

After seeing Nurse Chrissie Newson Rgn at Medical Skin Clinic Brentwood I was invited to see Gabi at Vellalure Skincare and Permanent Cosmetic Clinic in the same building for a Luxury Collagen Youth Infusion Facial.  It was a hot day and I was glad of this invitation as my skin was red from pollution and heat.  Gabi offers a full range of skincare including Mesotherapy and also Semi Permanent Make Up.

The facial was naturally sourced collagen based and very relaxing.  The Native(Natural) collagen in the products by Souvre Internationalis sourced naturally from fish skin and all the products are free from parabens and preservatives.  These products have been clinically proven to improve skin texture, imperfections, scars, Acne, stretch marks, sagging skin, wrinkles and sun damaged skin.  These products are also an effective management treatment for Rosacea.

There is a whole range of products in the Souvre International Natural Collagen range from Poland including face, body, hair and nail treatments, plus internal supplements to treat from the inside out.  For my treatment Gabi focused on my face, neck and decolletage.  Firstly on this hot and humid day it was a relief to have the facial cleanse using the soothing Collagen Facial Wash Gel which is specially formulated for sensitive skin.  The the Collagen Peeling cream was used to gently exfoliate dead skin cells from my skin.  This contains microgranules  derived from natural pink sand of Tikehaue in Polynesia, then the Collagen Toner was used after a rinse.  After this Gabi massaged into my skin the Collagen Face and Cleavage Serum.  This is a real treatment, very relaxing and comfortable.  The serum contains vitamins, active peptides and hyaluronic acid as well as the all important collagen.  This serum protects skin from environmental pollutants, replenishes lost moisture and rebuilds the skins structure to tighten and brighten.  After this step Gabi applied the Gold Mask which contains Gold to compliment the serum, the gold stimulates the cells and reinforces the collagen and elastin, forming a layer of protection the the skin.  This was left on for 30 minutes whilst Gabi massaged my scalp, neck, shoulders, decolletage, arms and hands using the Collage Serum.  So relaxing that I actually fell asleep!  After the mask had done it's job a Under Eye Serum and Day Cream was applied for maximum protection and effect.  Both of these products contain Aloe Vera, Vitamins and Minerals as well as Collagen.  The eye serum is perfected to minimise puffiness, swelling and reduce dark circles.  The day cream will moisturise the skin all day and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

After all of this I felt relaxed, rested and refreshed.  My mood was serene after the stress of the heated day and my skin looked and felt fantastic!  The results actually continued to work in the coming  days and Gabi also gave me the mask to take home to enjoy the benefits of my brightened complextion for longer. The redness from the Rosacea was also gone and my skin was plump and firm.  I would definately recommend this treatment and also the products.  They do not smell fishy like you would expect and feel luxurious - a real treat!

Lip Fillers by Dr Hardip Nandra Essex Medical Aesthetics

I love a natural pout and I'm always looking for a talented Doctor to do my lips.  I found Dr Hardip Nandra of Essex Medical Aesthetics on Facebook and really admired his work.  I decided to visit one of his clinics for summer lips.

Dr Nandra has a few different lip fillers for the desired effect that a patient wants with a cannula to avoid bruising and also uses a dental block to avoid pain and discomfort.  I have to say that I felt no pain at all in the top lip, just a little pinching in the bottom lip.  We decided to use 1ml of Juvederm Volite, mostly in the top lip with a little in the middle of the bottom lip for balance.  As this was a top up, the filler was only needed in the body of the lip and not in the vermilion border, (my lips already had a good shape to them, but volume was needed).  Dr Nandra ensured I was fully numbed before commencing.  His experienced hand didn't take long to do the art of shaping my lips and I was really happy and impressed with the result.  

I had slight swelling for a couple of days.  I used arnica supplements to avoid any bruising as I am prone to brusing and antihistamines to take down the swelling quickly.  I also used a neck pillow for a couple of nights to avoid rolling onto my face whilst sleeping.  I have had some lovely comments on my lips and I'm so happy with the natural result.  Dr Hardip has replaced volume lost to give my lips a youthful plumpness which makes a difference to my whole face.  There was no downtime, no fuss and no pain just great results!

Prices for lips are; 0.5ml £150 and 1ml £190 for any lip filler.

Essex Medical Aesthetics are based in; Plaistow, Loughton, Romford, Hornchurch and Chelmsford.  There is a huge range of aesthetic, skin and anti-wrinkle treatments to choose from or combine for your confident new look.

High frequency cleansing facial at The Salon BDC

I was called on to try Direct and Indirect High Frequency Cleansing Facial at The Salon at Barking and Dagenham College Campus.  This is a totally safe cleansing facial using high frequency electricity that dries out spots, white heads, excess sebum and increases blood circulation.

Demi who is a lovely girl doing her training first of all used the probe directly on my freshly cleansed skin over a gauze to stimulate my skin, during this there is a gentle tingling sensation and you do have a metallic taste in your mouth which is a natural reaction to the High Frequency.  This didn't take long at all and wasn't uncomfortable.  Then Demi applied sweet almond oil to my face and instructed me to hold a probe which was attached to the high frequency machine.  She then went to work massaging my face and neck with the oil whilst  we both created a circuit with the current flowing through which pushes in products.  This is deep cleansing and encourages circulation.  This also feels tingly and very pleasant. After this a calming tea tree based sedate gel  face mask was applied whilst my hands and arms were massaged with a lovely smelling raspberry moisturiser.  this mask is ideal for delcaite/irritated skin.  When the mask was cleaned off a light moisturiser was applied to my face.

My face felt so soft and looked so fresh afterwards.  This was a lovely pre-hoilday treatment for my skin to get holiday ready for all the heavy sun lotions to be used.  Note, my skin type is oily/combination and I have Rosacea and sensitive skin - this treatment is ideal for oily skin types and safe for anybody suffering with Rosacea.

This lovely little salon managed by Chantelle Mcagnus is a great place to go for affordable treatments and to update your beauty training, so why not treat yourself!

Elemis Facial at Mind, Body & Spirit

I visited Leigh at Mind, Body and Spirit at the Holiday Inn whilst I was in Brentwood.  Leigh's salon is situated by the gym and spa, which is very handy for a relaxing day out!

Leigh has many anti-ageing and body contouring techniques which give zero pain and zero downtime, just great results!  I can't wait to try in the near future.  For now I had a lovely relaxing Elemis facial tailored for my skin as I have Rosacea and oily T-Zone.

Elemis only use natural ingredients and is scientifically proven to meet every individual skin need.  It's ever evolving and cutting edge.

Firstly Leigh used a pre cleanse balm to hold onto any impurities ready for the gentle cleanse.  The balm is in place of oil as it is easy for travellers and less messy.  Then a gentle Rose Exfoliator was used to remove any lingering dead skin cells.  After this a soothing and calming Herbal Lavender Repair face mask was applied for 10 minutes whilst Leigh relaxed me with a hand and arm massage.  And finally barrier cream was applied which contained

My skin felt fresh, comfortable and radiant.  I would recommend this treatment as part of your skin care routine and especially as part of a spa day at this location!

Dermalogica at The Salon BDC

I recently attended an open evening at The Salon BDC located at Barking and Dagenham College and organised by the lovely students.

I had the taster 10 minute Dermalogica Facial.  The aim of this facial for me was to achieve firmer skin with less redness as I have Rosacea.
So I had a gentle cleanse using the Ultracalming Cleanser.  Exfoliator was not used in this case as it's not advisable to exfoliate too much with Rosacea.  Then the area around my lips was concentrated on to reduce wrinkles with Age smart Super Rich Repair.  Finally Ultracalming Barrier Repair was used all over.  This is a waterless moisturiser which shields the skin against pollution and protects as a transdermal layer keeping all moisture in.  It was recommended that I include this particular step into my daily skincare.  Another recommendation was to use the Sound Sleep Cocoon as I suffer from insomnia.  This cream has encapsulated calming Lavender which is a well know aromatherapy treatment for insomnia.  Each time your face rubs onto the pillow a burst of the soothing fragrance is released to ease you back to slumber.

Dermalogica has a line for every skin concern, it's free of irritants and parabens and very  natural.  There is also a body range and make up too.  I think I will incorporate Dermalogica into my skin regime.

Dermalogica is the range used by The Salon BDC, you can pick up affordable facials here along with many other treatments including; lashes, nails, body contouring, massage, hair and make up.  This is also a great place to start your beauty training.

Open Day at Beauty Secrets - Godalming

I recently was kindly invited to Beauty Secrets in Godalming as a blogger to see what they have to offer and model for some treatments by Therapist Amy.

I was very impressed by what I saw.  I had a chat with the owners and found out that this is a family run business with many treatments under one roof and 3 locations, (Hove and Horsham).  The salon in Horsham also offers sauna and spa services.  This particular salon in Godalming offers; inch loss, skin tightening, cellulite reduction, nail treatments, skin collagen stimulating treatments such as dermapen and carbon facial using a laser.  Also there is a peaceful spa out back which offers relaxing holistic treatment such as lava shell massage and signature facials.  The spa smells amazing and has an aura of peace and calm, the relaxation treatments look amazing.

I modelled for inch loss treatment on my tummy area using the latest technology, the 3D Lipo machine.  I also modelled for the skin tightening treatment using radio frequency on my face, concentrating on my lower face.  The inch loss treatment was intense but not painful.  It consists of 3 steps, deep ultrasound cavitation to disrupt and melt fat cells, radio frequency skin tightening to create collagen and the shock wave to further break up fat cells and release water retention.  This usually takes 40-45 minutes, but as I was modelling and there wasn't time for the entire treatment I had 20 minutes of this.  I lost a few centimetres immediately which was impressive.  This treatment is for those fatty deposits that are difficult to shift.  It destroys fat cells permanently once melted they pass through the liver over a number of days, so lots of water is recommended to aid the elimination process.  I did feel the difference and also felt as if I'd been doing sit ups so this is firming too!  The facial uses the same machine on the radio frequency head which is relaxing and comfortable.  The radio frequency wakes up the basal layers of the skin to create collagen and elastin to firm the skin and also instantly firms the upper layers too.  I was happy with the lifting and plumping result.  This done repeatedly can make a huge difference to your skin and is ideal for anybody wanting firmer skin without too much intervention. 

I noticed that the model next to me, also Jenny was having a full body cellulite reduction therapy using a vacuum machine whilst wearing a body suit, which looked really interesting.  I would be very interested in trying this therapy in the future.  Jenny has been having this treatments combined with the 3D Lipo and is steadily losing weight and changing her shape making her feel more confident and happy about herself.

This salon is set in the pretty village of Godalming run by friendly and qualified staff and the owner even told me that they also have qualified doctors in aesthetics to offer treatments such as botox and fillers.  The next open day will be in October and I can't wait to catch up with the girls!

Profhilo by Nurse Chrissie Newson Rgn Medical Skin Clinic Brentwood

Profhilo is a treatment which is raved about so I'd thought I'd give it a go.  Nurse Chrissie Newson Rgn has a Medical Skin Clinic in Brentwood on Ongar Road just above Rocky's Fun House.  She's been offering aesthetics for a number of years including threads, botox and fillers.

Profhilo is a skin remodelling treatment which is a non crossed hyaluronic acid injected into 5 points of the mid and lower face on each side.  This is done again after 4 weeks to ensure the treatment lasts for up to 6 months.  After the hyaluronic acid is injected it spreads across the skin and attracts water to the skin to hydrate.  This treatment is recommended to 40-60 year old patients and is a preventative anti ageing treatment. Profhilo makes the skin firmer, plumper, softens fine lines, especially the static lines under the eyes and gives an even skin texture.  The non cross linked hyaluronic acid stimulates 4 different types of collagen and elastin over the time it takes to diffuse throughout the skin.  It can be used alone for people who do not wish to resort to more drastic treatments or can be complementary to other treatments such as threads to condition the skin.  It can also be used with botox and fillers to freshen your look.

After the first treatment even my children noticed the difference in my skin as they are so close up to me and touch my face all the time.  My skin is firmer, fine lines are reduced and redness is diffused as I have Rosacea so this is a treatment which can compliment Rosacea management.  I especially like the effect on the fine static lines under the eyes as these can be tricky to treat.  As a result I'm looking and feeling fresher and youthful.  I'm really happy with this treatment and the result.  There was no downtime for me, no side effects and no bruising, just excellent results.

Lip Fillers with Cannula & Botox Meso by Dr Lisa Godfrey

Dr Lisa Godfrey recently told me about Botox Mesotherapy and offered for me to try.  This is an especially good treatment for me as I suffer Rosacea, open pore and oily T-Zone.  This treatment also has a tightening effect on the skin.  As I was due a lip top up, Lisa also suggested lips with her.  I was curious to see her technique as she uses a cannula rather than a needle, so there are no actual injection points on the lips.  This rules out bruising and infection of the lips and allows the filler to go in smoothly.

I was offered a Dental Block for my lips which I gladly took as I have never had cannula lip fillers before, this worked well whilst Lisa carried out the Botox Mesotherapy.   Lisa mixes the Botox with saline so as it is very diluted, (not the same as actual Botox anti wrinkle injections to paralyse the muscle and relax the wrinkles).  The diluted Botox is then added to a cocktail of Amino Acids for overall skin health.  Lisa used a Mesogun to deliver a series of injections subcutaneously under the skin in the areas where required.  Lisa concentrated on my chin, nose, cheeks and forehead for open pores and Rosacea and also injected around eyes and jowl area for tightening.  This was not painful or even uncomfortable at all and didn't take long.  

After this, my dental block was ready for my lips to be sculpted.  Lisa numbed the areas with topical anesthetic where the cannula would be inserted.  There were only 2 injection points. The filler used was Restalyne Kysse a firm and long lasting filler formulated for lips, we decided on 1ml.  Lisa's expert eye could see that my remaining lips fillers from before were still firmly in the vermillion border of my lips, so no top up was needed there.  Mainly the fillers were needed in the body of the top lip and a little in the bottom lip with some in the corners to lift.  Lisa filled each half of the lips top and bottom from each corner where the cannula was inserted beside the lips, she massaged and moulded as she injected the correct amount of filler.  I can tell that Lisa is expert at this as it didn't take long and wasn't painful, just pinchy when the cannula went in and when she was moving the blood vessels out of the way with the cannula. 

After, when I was handed the mirror I was so happy with the overall result.  I could see the redness instantly reduced in my skin and was told that this would continue to work over the next couple of day reducing the size of my pores too.  My lips look fabulous, I love them.  They look really natural, pouty without the "duck look" and plump.  (Lisa was also careful not to make my mouth look wide as I have a small face).  My lips only took 2 days for the swelling to go, which wasn't a problem and there was no bruising.  Also I don't look sad anymore as my lips curl upwards at the corners now instead of downwards.  My skin is firmer, less red and as promised the pores are now reduced.

Non Surgical Breast Lift at IMed Aesthetics

I've had the fourth part of my non surgical breast lift at Imed Aesthetics UK.  I will now only need to have a top up in a few weeks.  My F cup is now 2 inches higher, my breasts are rounder and they are back together instead of divorced.  I'm over the moon with this result!  I can really see and feel the difference.  I feel so much more comfortable now in my bras and my posture has improved significantly.

The 3 stage breast reduction is over a 2 hour session and is £75 for each session.  The machine is cutting edge with health and safety at at the forefront.  There is a microchip in the machine which will automatically switches off the mechanism if it detects any danger to the client, (so overheating of the tissues is impossible).  Radio frequency is used in 2 stages.  Stage 1 is skin tightening and stage 2 is muscle tightening.  After this the vacuum machine is used to tone the tissues and eliminate excess fluid and toxins.   

This treatment is perfect for any ladies that have breastfed or lost a lot of weight and is left with some sag to their breasts.  There is no pain, no downtime and best of all - no scars.

IMed's cutting edge and painless machines are from Switzerland and have all the leading UK treatments.  Imed also sell these machines to salons and clinics.  If you are looking to offer these treatments in your clinic or salon, Sales Consultant Lian Allard can help - 07745 330742.
