Lasers, What are the benefits ?

Lasers, What are the benefits ?

Laser Skin Tightening and Firming is a treatment used to correct a range of skin concerns. These include, rejuvenating the skin, treating active acne, reducing scarring, uneven skin tone and texture, wrinkles, discolouration, stretch marks, enlarged pores, aged and lax skin.

This laser treatment encourages collagen production and healthy new skin cells to revive your skin and create a more youthful complexion. This treatment is perfect for those looking for an effective and quick procedure to rejuvenate and revitalise the skin.

How does it work?

The laser utilises a targeted laser beam to insert heat into the skin to a precise temperate in order to stimulate collagen and healing. The skin will absorb the heat and stimulate natural collagen growth. As the laser does not effect the outer layers of the skin there is little to no downtime or prolonged healing process.

Pre/Post Care

We recommend the use of a good quality moisturiser that contains pigment inhibitors, and a good night time serum as it plays a vital role in your skins ability to heal and repair whilst keeping the skin plump and hydrated.

To protect your skin from harmful UV rays, it is important to use a sunscreen.  For the first 48 hours, it is best to avoid excessive sun exposure, saunas, harsh chemicals and exercise.

Our skin therapists will provide you with aftercare information tailored to your treatment plan.

Microdermabrasion, what are the benefits?

Testimonials

By Jules at Sole at Revival 

Microdermabrasion is one of our most popular facial treatments and done regularly, it has a host of benefits. 

What is it?

Microdermabrasion is a mechanical exfoliation using diamond technology to slough away the build up of dead skin. This reveals fresher and brighter skin, improves fine lines, scarring, sin spots and pore size. 

Does it hurt? 

No, I shouldn’t hurt at all and if it does feel uncomfortable then ask the therapist to turn it down as it’s likely she has it too high.

What are the benefits of Microdermabrasion ?

Microdermabrasion encourages your body to create new and younger skin.

There are also some secondary benefits like improved lymphatic drainage, thanks to the little vacuum that is moved over your skin. I can see an improvement in clients skin even after one treatment. 

In general I use microdermabrasion to treat a specific skin condition, there is a lot of evidence that it is an effective treatment for tired, dull skin, fine lines, brown spots and acne scars. The treatments I deliver cost about the same as a standard facial and I think the results are far better. 

If your treatments are done regularly, approximately six a year, you will see some really positive long-term benefits.

What Facial is good for acne ?

Acne Treatments. 

A 2010 study published in the Indian Journal of Dermatology, and republished by the U.S. National Library of Medicine, found that patients saw a 49.19% reduction in acne after four sessions of intense pulse light therapy. Researchers tested both single- and burst-pulse modes and found that the burst-pulse treatment provided more control than the single-pulse mode. However, IPL alone was overall very beneficial in clearing acne.

“Because of increased consumer awareness, we’re doing more treatments for acne with devices that actually work,” explained Mitchel Goldman, M.D. “For example, I have not used antibiotics for acne for over 10 years because we have lots of devices that we can do that will literally cure acne.”

A study published in the National Library of Medicine by Innovaderm Research Inc.found that blue light therapy does improve acne vulgaris. Patients should be aware that a course of six treatments would be the most beneficial.

Customised Facials versus Botox. Which one is best for me?

By | Blogs | No Comments

Sole Revival provides customised face and body treatments

Rejuvenating Facials. Radio Frequency non-surgical facelift

Rejuvenating non-surgical facelift

This is an actual query from a client considering Botox.

“ I have frown lines on my forehead and wrinkles around my eyes and lips and my jaw line is looking a little softer. I am looking at getting Botox at a cost of $350 every 3 months. I’m unsure what to do. Do you think your tailored customised facials would be better for me!” 

So glad you are looking at this option. Thank you for coming to me and for doing your research before you start investing your time and money into your rejuvenating journey.

firstly it’s unlikely you can get all of the areas you mentioned addressed by Botox alone, it is very likely that each area will be treated separately and therefore will cost more than the quoted $350.

I have actually helped clients get off Botox and the main reason was there skin did not look any better, they just had no wrinkles, secondly the rising cost was something they were feeling uncomfortable with and they felt they had no option but to rebook every 3 months, as without it their face just fell. How awful is that?
Every time they got a treatment here at Sole Revival, they were very happy and were able to last much longer than their 3 months for Botox, until gradually they were able to get off it altogether.
With customised facials you are improving your own elasticity, skin tone, pores and collagen production. Your skin becomes stronger with each treatment. Whereas with Botox there is no real improvement, a muscle that is not used is a muscle that dies.
1. Botox is botulism, which is a muscle freezer. That can not be doing your kidneys or liver any good to process that. Not to mention the risks,  of which we have all seen the horror stories, of unidentifiable ingredients in the injectables and faces that have fallen. It’s only now the scientific evidence is emerging and uncovering the real long term damage it does to the nerves and the brain.
2. The cost will keep increasing as more areas need done and then you start to get fillers, and I have to say, eventually people look a bit odd.

What is personalised wellness?

What is Personalised Wellness?

Personalised wellness is when you customise the treatment specifically for the individual. This is a holistic approach. The term ‘holistic’ comes from the Greek word ‘holos’ which means ‘whole’. It’s the practice of taking the whole person into account rather than just the symptoms of a particular illness or disease.

Therefore, you will find the focus during any holistic therapy is not only on the physical symptoms.

Stresses of any kind, be they physical, environmental, psychological or social can affect this balance and cause ‘dis-ease’ within your body.

Reflexology, massage and other holistic therapies do not see you as a collection of separate parts but as one energy system. A blockage in one area can cause all sorts of ailments to occur within the body.

We are seeking to get to the root cause of your illness or discomfort, and treat that so that you can make a full recovery.

“For the Part can never be well, unless the whole is well….(Plato)”.

Did you know?
All your thoughts get translated into chemicals that cause an actual physical effect to take place in your body, altering the behaviour of your cells. For example, sadness will influence the cells of your tear ducts and make them produce tears. 😢

(That’s one reason stress is sooo bad for you. It really does affect your health)

Be kind to yourself & each other, and do not hurt anyone’s heart 💔

What is Dermaplaneing and what are The Benefits Of Dermaplaning

By | Blogs | No Comments

Sole Revival provides customised face and body treatments

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a surgical scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling, dead skin cells and vellus hair ( peach fuzz) in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. The tool is held at a 45 degree angle and is brushed along the skin to remove the hair and skin cells.  The procedure makes skin look and feel smoother and will reduces the appearance of acne scars.

 

What are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?  

  • Allows your products to penetrate deeper.
  • Your make up sits better.
  • Removes the soft facial hair that traps dirt and oils.
  • Your skin looks smoother.
  • Safe, quick and inexpensive procedure for removing dead skin cells and “peachfuzz”
  • Reduces the appearance of acne scars.
  • Diminishes the look of fine lines.
  • A great treatment to do whilst undergoing permanent hair removal.
  • Works on most skin types
  • Instant results and little to no downtime
  • Is great fir the photo finish look.

 

How Often is Dermaplaning Performed?

Dermaplaning is usually performed every four weeks.  The normal rejuvenation cycle is thirty days. The procedure generally will remove the four weeks of dead skin from the facial area.

Is it safe for everyone ? If you suffer from acne or have excess oil production it’s not the ideal treatment for you, there are better options.  The reason why you want to avoid this procedure if you are excessively oily is because if the hair is removed from the area, the oils may cause bacteria growth which could lead to even more acne breakouts.

 

What to Expect After the Procedure:

Sometimes after dermaplaning, the skin may feel a bit dry, or may even peel slightly.  This normally only happens when there is not enough time in between treatments to let the hair’s growth cycle be completed.  This is why it is important to leave enough time between visits to get the best results.

Will my hair grow back thicker and darker or spiky? This is the most common question we get asked.  It is physiologically impossible for the hair to grow back thicker and dark, as dermaplaning only targets the vellus hair (peachfuzz) the hair will grow back the same size and colour.

Never do this procedure at home. Leave it to the professionals at Sole Revival to ensure a safe and effective treatment.

If you would like to book an appointment or learn more about dermaplaning or any of our other treatments please feel free to call or email us.

An interview with skincare specialist Jules from Sole Revival. Discussing rejuvenation. 

I have to say, public speaking is not one of my Forte’s, I much prefer one on ones or small groups.

So forgive the unprofessionalism of this clip, my hope is that you pick up some valuable tips.

The Best Alternative Therapy for Back, shoulder and Neck Pain.

By | Blogs | No Comments

Reflexology for health and well being

Alternative therapies for Pain relief.

The Best Alternative Therapy for Back, shoulder and Neck Pain.

Alternative medicine is drug-free and non-invasive, it has very few side effects. It focus on the importance of holistic healing and mind and body connection. 

1. Reflexology, is a science based on the principle that reflex points, which relate to all parts of the body, can be found on the face, feet, hands and ears. These points respond to pressure, stimulating the body’s own natural healing process. The body starts progressively clearing blockages, re-establishing energy flows and balancing itself, resulting in better health. 

2. Massage Therapy, manipulates the body’s tissues. This manipulation relieves tension, promotes relaxation, and provides pain-relief. If you experience back pain and neck pain the muscles in these areas may be tense and there may be “knots”, small patches of clenched muscle fibers that ache. Massage can work away this tension and relieve pain. 

3. Acupressure therapy similar to acupuncture in promoting relaxation and wellness. Acupressure is like acupuncture without needles. This is a traditional form of Chinese medicine where practitioners use their fingers or palms, to apply pressure to the body’s meridians. Acupressure targets these areas to release painful symptoms as you achieve balance and healing. 

4. Electric Nerve therapy is transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, a form of therapy that uses a low-voltage electrical current to relieve pain. If you’re experiencing back or neck pain and you place these gel pads in the painful area you will feel a gentle pulsing or massage sensation. These electrical impulses block pain signals from reaching your brain. As a result, your back and neck pain can immediately diminish as you use electrical nerve therapy.

Alternative therapy is often used to compliment, rather than replace other medical treatments. There are many benefits associated with alternative therapeutic practices. A few of these include:

Non-invasive

Drug-free

Cost-effective

Addresses mental health.

Would you rather be kind or nice? What is the difference?

By | Blogs | No Comments

Sole Revival provides customised face and body treatments

Be kind

Would you rather be KIND or NICE? 

There is definitely a difference between being “kind” and being “nice”. I think “niceness” is good (I certainly strive to be nice to people) Niceness is a social thing, a way of keeping things polite. You can be “nice” to someone while not really liking them. Niceness is a bit false, a bit dishonest, it has to be, it is necessary to keep the peace. A calm sales person can be nice to a rude customer, because their training and manners have taught them how to act nice. A lot of niceness is social etiquette. You can be nice to relatives who drive you nuts. You can be nice to your friends about their badly behaved children, or nice to your husband’s work mate, who’s beyond rude. 

Basically, human niceness is what keeps the world functioning, without it, we would all be strangling each other. At the base of niceness is a polite wish for everyone to get along, and therefore I’m all for it. Without “nicesness” every crowded shop, airplane, waiting room and family reunion would be even more difficult. 

But kindness is deeper. Kindness is true, it feels warm and loving. Kindness never judges you, never puts on an act. Kindness never blames. Kindness sees the situation from every point of view. Kindness always finds the words to say. “That’s OK. These things happen.” Kindness says “I may not agree with you, but I understand that it’s difficult, and I’m sorry you’re suffering.” Kindness ALWAYS MEANS IT.

Therefore I strive to be kind in all situations. I don’t always achieve it. Especially when I’m tired, stressed or anxious, I can’t always hold onto my kindness, It’s worth the effort, though. I never regret kindness when I practice it.  So be nice, but practice being kind folks, it’s worth the effort and you never know how much it will mean to someone.

 

Is you skin constantly breaking out?

Is you skin constantly breaking out?

Firstly, get a proper consultation in person, it’s only by seeing someone’s skin that we can tell what would be the correct treatment for it.

There are so many factors that can affect the skin, so by having a chat we can work out what may be the root cause if the breakouts.

1. If the skin is compromised, raw and painful, use soothing facials and/or LED.

2. Make a list of all the products that you are using so that we can review it. It may be that you are using too many products, the ingredients may be to active for your skin type. Id suggest we look at using ingredients that  will calm the skin, sooth it and strengthen it. Anti fungal and anti-inflammatory cleansers and healing moisturisers.

3. Look at your stress levels. This is actually one of the most common triggers for acne. How much sleep are you getting? Your body functions best on approximately 8 hours of good quality sleep. If this is where the problem is stemming from then we can show you some great relaxation tips that can be done in 20 minutes or less each day. ( think, breathing exercises, walks in the fresh air, absolutely no screen time for an hour before bed. Listening to a guided meditation may be what works for you. It’s all about having various tools and using them when you need them.

4. Look at your diet, what are you eating? I’ve had many clients that worked out that it was sugar, or dairy that triggered their breakouts. By reviewing what you are eating and drinking we can often find that people start to make healthier choices when they know what it will do to their skin.
