Age Gracefully….but not before you have to!

March 14, 2011

Age is a reality we all face but why not squeeze the most out of your life.

My philosophy is a full on proactive approach. Do whatever you can to stay young.

Of course, age is a process that involves much more than our appearance. Staying young and vibrant also requires that you make an effort to keep fit, eat healthy and maintain your energy and sense of fun. Learn new things, accept new challenges and keep a balance in life… spend time doing the things you enjoy.

As for the way we look…well yes, that’s important too but it’s not simply a matter of vanity. I honestly believe that making the time and effort to present yourself well and looking fresh isn’t so much about vanity as it is about feeling confident and feeling good about yourself…and this really helps to keep that upper edge in the workplace.

Age gracefully…but not without a fight…. take a stand!! 🙂

I see first hand the results that a little bit of cosmetic touchup can achieve….not just to freshen a person’s look but even more importantly to lift their self esteem, their spirit and their aura of vibrancy. If you feel younger than you look… then look as young as you feel.

What about your neck!

February 24, 2010

It is often said the neck can give away a person’s age and is especially susceptible to the ravages of ageing and sun exposure. We often take the time daily to spend on keeping our face moisturised and apply sunscreen, but forget about our necks.

There are surgical options such as Liposuction or neck lifts which are effective for neck contouring, if you are not ready for the scalpel or more invasive treatments there are non-surgical options that achieve great results, such as Ultherapy ® which uses ultrasound to deposit focused energy to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin in the deep tissue layers. Consequently, skin will begin to firm, lift and tighten over time. This procedure does not use scalpels, needles or toxins, therefore there is no disruption to the skin and no downtime or NeckTite™ which is a minimally invasive non-excisional Radio Frequency Assisted Liposuction (RFAL™) fat removal and skin tightening procedure. The NeckTite procedure is when radio frequency energy and aspiration are applied concurrently, resulting in gentle fat removal, tissue shrinkage and contouring.

Other treatments include Fractional Resurfacing and Lipodissolve or non-surgical medical treatments that can be tailored to your individual needs. For skin rejuvenation we offer Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photorejuvenation; PRP  and chemical peels to assist with freshening up the look of the skin on your neck and chest.

Cosmetic Image Clinics offer all these treatments and another exciting treatment that we will be offering in the future is the revolutionary CoolSculpting® chin applicator technology which will use controlled cooling to freeze and eliminate unwanted fat cells without surgery or downtime.

So don’t neglect your neck, if surgery is too scary to fix that saggy neck skin or you want to freshen up your ageing neck non-surgically we can offer an array of treatments, contact us today.
