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.

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.

 

What you need to know about permanent hair reduction

Permanent Hair Reduction

Permanent Hair Reduction

SHR is the latest technology in permanent hair reduction

 

Is it painful? No, the latest technology has an inbuilt cooling system so it’s pain free, fast and very effective. The SHR technology is the best technology for permanent laser hair removal.
How does SHR work? SHR fires multiple shots but at low Joules, in doing so it gently heats the hair follicle to the heat needed and the most you will feel is warmth and a tingling sensation, some clients comparing it to a warm massage. SHR also utilizes In-Motion technology, where the hand piece is always in motion over the skin ,easy to compare to ironing .
Is SHR suitable for all skin types? SHR is suitable for all skin types, even tanners, this is achievable because of the technology and techniques utilised. Unlike traditional Laser and IPL , SHR can be had all year round without having to hide from the sun.
How many treatments are needed? You will need 6-10 treatments, spaced at four week intervals. A four week regime is important to target the hair in its growth period. Near the end of the treatments 6-8 week intervals may be adequate.
What preparation do I need to do prior to beginning my treatment sessions. Firstly, cease all hair removal for at least 6 weeks prior to your first appointment,( waxing, threading, epilating) only shaving is required. The reason for this is that we want to target the root, as this is what destroys the cell and leads to permanent hair reduction. You must shave the area to be treated. Shave the day prior and the day of your appointment for best results.

THE MINDFULNESS TREATMENT REVOLUTION.

AN HOUR DEDICATED TOTALLY TO YOU!

Life’s a juggle and the pressure is on but you don’t have to do it alone! You are invited to press pause on the crazy and dedicate an hour to being Mindful, filling your own cup and giving back to the person who deserves it most -YOU.

Sole Revival have created Mindfulness Treatment Protocols to treat more than just skin. Life is busy, people are time poor, they have so much and so many to think about that often there is little time left for self-love. This can result in the feeling of not being enough or worthy, feelings of anxiety and depression, negative thoughts and attitude that lead to skin inflammation, breakout, deep lines, wrinkles, dull and devitalised skin.

Studies prove there is a direct correlation between the skin and how it reacts to our emotions. Our skin is a clear indicator of our physical and emotional health. Negative self-talk affects self-esteem which in turn affects emotional health.

Mindfulness Sessions are committed to supporting mental health, positive self-talk and giving you a sense of self-worth.

When you get a mindfulness treatment at Sole Revival you are taken on a journey to hydrate, nourish and nurture skin whilst stimulating positive feelings and emotions spending some quality time with yourself.

What is a Gua Sha Facial?

What is a Gua Sha Facial?

Gua Sha Facial

Gua Sha Facial

Facial gua sha is a much more gentle version of the technique that is typically used on the body in Traditional Chinese Medicine. On the body, the aim is to break down tissue blockages and stagnation and release toxins. The way we are using this technique here on the face (specifically to drain puffiness) is extremely light in comparison.

What we see as puffiness in the face is fluid retention, specifically lymphatic fluid. For optimal health of the skin, the immune system, and the entire body, we want lymph to be circulating freely. When lymph is draining it is operating at an optimal level.

When we incorporate Gua Sha puffiness goes down. In addition, the proper circulation removes toxins from the skin, which helps to clarify the complexion, and rejuvenates skin cells for a healthy glow.

My clients love to have a facial with gua sha, and a lymphatic drainage massage as soon as possible after flight, especially long haul flights) be using in the treatment room.

5 THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT PORES

By | Blogs | No Comments

While much of skincare is designed to shrink, hide, cleanse, unclog and refine pores, they are an essential part of your body. Arm yourself with a few essential facts about your pores and you can save your skin from a nightly fight with painful pore-cleansing strips, drying skin care routines and unnecessary beauty rituals.

1. They’re Actually Hair Follicles
The largest organ on the body boasts plenty of surprising hidden traits. Pores allow the skin to breathe and serve as openings for hair follicles and sweat glands. The tiny hairs sprouting from your pores connect to the muscles under your skin and give you that goosepimply feeling when you’re cold. The oil gland hidden inside of each pore also produces a protective, moisturizing oil, called sebum that helps skin and hair stay soft and supple.

2. They’re Made That Way
Despite the vast array of products aimed at shrinking pores, there is very little you can do to physically change the way your pores look. Genetics determine the visibility of your pores, how much oil they produce and the overall texture and tone of your skin. However, avoiding sun damage, investing in gentle moisturizers, staying away from harsh cleansers and regular exfoliation can help boost skin elasticity and keep the appearance of pores at bay.

3. They Change Shape
Pores are far from static, even though you inherit their shape and prominence. They change and transform along with skin tone and texture over the years. Pores can appear larger because of slowing collagen production, sun exposure, dry skin and especially the over-production of oil. Acne woes can also expand these tiny openings as dirt and oil get trapped, leaving behind inflammation, blackheads and the possibility of stretched pores.

4. Regular Cleansing Helps
Since inflammation, excess oil, dirt buildup and the resulting acne can all make pores more stressed and visible, a regular cleansing routine can help minimize distress and the over-production of oil. Clay jojoba masks that draw out dirt and oil buildup have been shown to help improve skin texture and decrease acne. Cleansers and masks containing charcoal might also help to absorb contaminants and excess oil trapped in the pores to keep stretching and inflammation to a minimum.

5. They Can Overcompensate
While it might seem logical to keep your skin squeaky clean when you struggle with an oily face, in reality you might be causing more distress. The oil glands at the base of your pores produce sebum to protect your skin. If skin cells start to feel dry, flaky or stressed from harsh cleansers, those glands tend to produce extra oil, continuing the cycle. Using a mild, gentle cleanser to remove dirt and excess oil without leaving skin dry keeps that oily sheen at bay. A lightweight, non-comedogenic moisturizer like a gel moisturizer can also help calm oily skin.

Skincare Mistakes Everyone makes & How to Correct Them

Skin Care Mistakes Almost Everyone Makes & Tips To Correct Them
From the desk of Sole Revival

As a therapist, my job is to advise my clients about the best way to care for their individual skin type. Through an initial in-depth conversation, I uncover how they are currently caring for their skin. They share what they are doing, but more importantly for me, they share what they are not doing. These are some common skin care mistakes I hear people making, in no particular order.

#1: I use it when I remember.
Just about every person has facial stuff in their bathroom, but they only use it “when I remember.”

Top tip:
Cleansing and Exfoliation are two of the best things you can do for your skin, so you’re missing out on some major skin improvement when you only use it once in a while. I encourage my less disciplined clients to use a daily face wash that’s a combined exfoliating cleanser. (Dermaceuticals exfoliating cleanser $69. Or Omveda Neem Face wash if you problematic skin) This dramatically reveals a brighter, smoother and clearer appearance & gets the job done without causing irritation.

#2: Not wearing make up with spf
Some of my clients hide their wrinkles, blemishes, scarring, and brown spots under makeup, and they come to me with the goal of perfecting their skin so they can go makeup-free. Other clients don’t have much they want to cover up, so they think that wearing spf foundation makeup is not needed and that not wearing it is helping their skin by letting it “breathe.”

Top tip:
Always wear make up that had spf product’s in it, because during daylight hours spf protects your skin from UV light and environmental damage. Keep in mind that the #1 cause of premature wrinkles is not from age, genetics or even smoking, it’s from incidental UV exposure that you get at home, at work or riding in the car. Of course, it helps to be wearing a Moisturiser with zinc oxide sunscreen like O Cosmedics tinted spf ($49) every day, it is 30+, lightweight and smells delicious. If you’re using a makeup that is clogging your pores and giving you bumps like some can certainly do, then that type simply isn’t the right fit for your skin so you should seek other options. I’m loving the Cover Recover at the moment, it has excellent coverage. ($89.95 spf 30* uva and uvb as well as anti aging peptides)

#3: Not wearing enough sunscreen on your neck.
When it comes to wearing sunscreen on the neck, most people follow a similar routine. You apply a Moisturiser with SPF to your face, and then whatever is left over on your fingertips you put on the neck. It’s probably not enough.

Top tip:
This always comes as a surprise when I explain it to my clients, but the protection you get from sunscreen is less about the SPF number and more about how generously you apply it. If you apply an SPF 50 sparingly, it could very well be giving you the protection factor of an SPF 30. For anyone over 40, the neck loses tone and gets discoloration and wrinkles. Apply a generous layer of sunscreen to the front and sides of the neck, including your chest.

At night, indulge the skin on your neck with a well-formulated neck cream. I recommend OmVeda Night lotus.

#4: Treating your blemishes the wrong way.
The moment the spot appears, Immediately dry it out with a spot treatment. No, No, No, definitely don’t do that. When a blemish appears, your body will work to repair it, it has an incredible repair responses (unless you have an immune deficiency disorder) that immediately recognise when an infection is present and then moves it’s little soldiers into high gear to heal it. The problem comes when you interfere with these natural healing processes, and end up making it worse.

Top tip:
When you get a blemish, ONE of two things will happen: The infection inside the blemish will work its way up to the surface of the skin resulting in a white head.

OR

The infection will NOT come up to the surface. It will stay deep within the skin until the body eventually re-absorbs it.

It’s best to not act the minute you feel a spot coming on, instead, wait a day or two for the infection to appear on the surface. Waiting will allow you to effectively control the blemish without damaging the skin. Once the whitehead is visible, gently squeeze out the infection with your fingers wrapped in tissue, and then apply a spot-drying treatment, like Omveda pimple clear, which will work its way into the skin and eradicate any lingering infection. If you apply a drying treatment before the whitehead is on the surface, it will simply dry out the surface of the skin. This keeps the infection trapped underneath for longer which causes the infection to stretch the surrounding skin tissue and sets off a response that creates discoloration and leaves behind a dark acne scar that will linger for weeks or even months. Regular exfoliation and facial massages keep congestion at bay and help eradicate the bumps and lumps underneath the skin.

#5: Not using the right skin routine to manage the needs of both wrinkles and adult breakouts.
This one is common for those ages 25-35 who still get clogged pores and breakouts, yet they are noticing fine lines and wrinkles. Their home routine is either only addressing the breakouts with drying acne products, or they don’t have anything to prevent blemishes and they are using anti-aging products. This type of skin is the most challenging because you need to address them both simultaneously.

(I believe there are many different skin types and that’s why every facial at SR is customised for the individual)

Top tip :
Any acne product that leaves your skin feeling tight, dry and irritated is not the one for you, as this creates dry skin cell buildup on the surface that traps oil and bacteria within the pores and can lead to more breakouts. Any anti aging product that feels greasy on the skin is not good either, because acne-prone skin needs less oil, since oil breeds bacteria and bacteria will lead to breakouts. I would say the best strategy for managing all your skin’s needs is to first understand it. In addition, you’ll want to use a gentle retinal ( expect to pay approx $100 upwards, but a little goes a long way) at night, three nights a week. It is also good for smoothing and encouraging cell turnover, needed to keep skin looking and acting young. Using an active product like this along with a good cleanser and a lightweight moisturiser can give your skin the balance it needs to be healthy and clear.

I hope this post will help you to truly know the correct way to care for your individual skin type.
