Dealing with sweaty armpits

Now it’s warmer, you might have noticed your body sweating more than usual. This is a natural and healthy event. As long as you are washing the sweat and bacteria away each day, it is usual to get a bit wiffy.

But there are some people to experience excessive sweating due to nerves and stress. This experience occurs all throughout the year and can cause distress. Particularly if there is a big event such as a wedding or public speaking because the sweat stains are noticeable.

If excessive sweating is not controlled by anti-perspirants, then it might be time to consider using toxin to “immobilise” the sweat producing ducts in the skin. This is a high dose treatment that is delivered over 2 sessions, hence the cost of £395. The treatment aims to reduce (not cease) your sweating so consider it as a one off before a big event, or if you are troubled by ongoing excessive sweating, then consider budgeting for 2-3 treatments per year. You will continue to sweat in other usual areas of the body - such as head, back and groin in order to regulate your body temperature, should you be engaging in sports.

Pay by Installments

I can’t believe I have not thought of this sooner! I’m so pleased to have come across the GoCardless Direct Debit scheme that makes it easy for me to set up payment plans for treatments that are continuous (such as Botox ) and to help you manage the cost of some of the other injectable procedures.

Payments commence before the treatment (or immediately after a treatment if you want to plan for the next) so you can spread the cost over 6 months or longer. Then when you re-attend, your procedure is already paid for. All you need do is ask... email me at junoaesthetics@gmail.com and I can set up your plan and email it back to you for immediate set up.

Prices for treatments is available here.

Profhilo is taking the UK by storm!

Screen Shot 2019-07-17 at 11.17.15.png

Juno Aesthetics has been offering this skin remodelling treatment since 2018 but in 2019, the UK media were raving about it!! It is minimally invasive and at low risk of adverse effects. Ideal for skins over 40 that have fine lines and crepey appearance - this “game-changer” skin treatment can be used on the face, neck, hands, arms, decollete and even inner thigh! Two treatments are required, 4 weeks apart; the optimal result is 4 weeks after the 2nd treatment. Satisfied patients report that their skin feels more hydrated, slightly lifted and firmer with a glowing appearance that lasts about 6 months.

If you don’t believe us, check out what Glamour Magazine, Financial Times, The Sun, British Vogue and Daily Mail.

Nofie recommends Profhilo and other skin treatments for patients who have either completed their dermal filler treatments and are now on maintenance volumes OR, patients who do not want to consider dermal fillers. Ageing occurs across 5 layers in your skin and ideally, dermal filler have already replaced lost volume caused by the ageing process. Profhilo then comes in to further firm, tighten and give radiance!

Be Cautious about IV Vitamin Infusions

12321210-6926109-image-m-23_1555373075077.jpg

According to the Daily Mail, doctors are peddling £150 'pointless' vitamin drips in clinics that are made to look like beauty spas.

There are strong discussions in the medical aesthetic community about medics and laypersons who offer IV vitamin infusions. I have been asked why I don’t offer them in Juno Aesthetics and here are some of the reasons why:

Intravenous access is no joke!

Putting a substance into your body via your veins give your heart, brain and lungs a massive exposure of a substance you could have a severe reaction to. To do this outside of a hospital means that if there was an issue, you would be unlikely to get the emergency help you needed.

Medical not Wellbeing

I’m not convinced there are benefits to people who are well and healthy. The evidence to say it works is on people who are malnourished and/or have vitamin absorption problems. Then the drips are treatments for a disease or disorder which is clearly medical. Otherwise they are worthless and you are putting yourself at needless risk.

If you have a suspected deficiency in vitamins/minerals, go to your family doctor and request blood tests.

10 Reasons why I will not be using "No Needle" Devices

IMG_1383.JPG

You might have seen on social media injectors offering “no needle” lip filler treatments.

Here are 10 reasons why I will not be considering this device for my dermal filler treatments:

  1. Firstly, if something sounds too good to be true, it almost certainly is!

  2. This is not new technology and was originally used for livestock vaccinations.

  3. This procedure might be needle free, but it certainly is not pain free.

  4. There is nowhere near the accuracy of using a needle that requires a precise technique.

  5. The machine uses immense pressure to push a viscous product like HA deeper into the tissues.

  6. There is almost always significant bruising that is so severe it takes the average person 3-6 weeks to recover from.

  7. The device cannot be sterilised so there is a risk of cross infection.

  8. The filler is not used from the syringe it was sold in which also increases a risk of infection.

  9. There is no control over the speed the product is delivered into your tissues so I cannot monitor you for the risk of a blocked artery.

  10. There is still a risk of a blocked artery because the pressure that is takes to “push” through the tissues of the lips could also penetrate a capillary, vein or artery.

Don’t get caught up on social media contagion. At Juno Aesthetics, I take time to consider the evidence base behind each product, treatment and the way it is administered. There are of course risks that are inescapable but we do not expose you to needless risks to keep up with the crowd!

The new skinbooster - Visoderm Hydrobooster

2019 has brought a new skinboosting treatment to Juno Aesthetics… VISODERM HYDROBOOSTER! Juno Aesthetics patients have consistently given great feedback about this injectable treatment that is used to provide deep hydration by improving elasticity, radiance and smoothness of the skin. Plus, it can be used on lines that are found on dynamic areas of the face - around the eyes, forehead, around the lips and the fine lines at the side of the mouth. The unique formula of this product makes it appropriate for stretching superficial wrinkles.

Wrinkle Relaxing Treatments

Did you know Juno Aesthetics is not permitted by the Medicine’s Regulator to use the brand name BOTOX in any promotional literature on my website or social media. Most people refer to all wrinkle relaxing treatments as “Botox Treatments” but they might not use the brand Botox (you might have heard of Azzalure, Dysport or Bocouture). However, I choose to use the Botox brand for your wrinkle relaxing treatments because it is widely researched and gives the best outcomes and best results.

Toxin treatments such as Botox prevent the brain’s messages from getting through to specific muscles that have been treated. It works by blocking the message junctions in the nerves that sit in muscles. After 8-12 weeks, you body starts growing back the receptors and so first signs of movement returns. Botox treatments are so effective in improving fine lines and wrinkles caused by muscle movement because they stop the muscle from moving which relaxes the area and gives the skin opportunity to regenerate without the constant creasing. Most people will have this treatment 2-3 times a year, which is every 4-6 months.

Here are some facts about toxin treatments you might not know:

  • Botox has been used in medicine for 30 years. It was first used for blepharospasm, cervical dystonia, chronic migraine. The optimal result is 30 days after treatment, thereafter first signs of movement are expected to return 8-12 weeks later.

  • Toxin treatments are not about immobilising the face but balancing musculature for a more relaxed appearance and reduction in lines caused by muscle movement.

  • Patients report feeling “5 years younger” by having a toxin treatment.

  • As we age, we become caricatures of ourselves because we grimace more due to volume loss in other layers of the face.

  • Toxin treatments have been used off label to improve anti-inflammatory skin conditions such as Acne-Rosacea.

  • When used over a certain standard dose, about 20% of patients are observing results that are lasting 5-6 months.

Hello Magazine writes about Lip Fillers!

It’s great to see a publication as well as NHS Choices endorse the professional standards register Save Face (which I am part of!) The take home message for me is:

“While cosmetic surgery is regulated in this country, certain non-surgical procedures are not subject to any controls. At present, filler is not licensed, which means anyone can administer it. In other words, a beauty therapist, hairdresser or other layperson."

You no longer have to rely on advertising, which does not differentiate between properly trained experts and the unskilled and unqualified. With Save Face you are guaranteed a safe treatment, in a safe place, with a safe practitioner. “
