Ditch the Razor for the Laser!

Botox – Botulinum Toxin Type A

Soft tissue filler such as Juvederm and Rystalane

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal is a semi permanent reduction in unwanted hair growth. Concentrated light generated from the laser is absorbed by pigment destroying the follicle and preventing future hair growth.  For best results a series of 4 – 6 treatments 6 weeks apart is optimal and industry standard.

Although laser hair removal won’t eliminate unwanted hair by 100%, it will destroy most hair follicles preventing future growth.

Why is laser hair removal so popular?

Well my friend, I came up with 5 good reasons why laser hair removal is so popular and am sharing them with you.

banner_hairremoval

The initial investment in laser treatments may seem like you are paying more but when compared to the cumulative cost of razors, creams, liquid hair removal, moisturizers and waxing over your lifetime, it costs less.

  1. It is so convenient! Who doesn’t want to wake up with baby smooth, hairless skin everyday? Say goodbye to those expensive razors, cuts and dry legs.  Once the hair is gone the maintenance drastically reduces.
  2. There is a significant population group that struggles and battles over unwanted and excessive hair growth.
  3. You will save so much time! Shaving has become part of our daily routine so in addition to all the other beauty rituals that need to completed, we am overwhelmed by the whole process of “getting ready” for the day. Saving time is reason enough to invest in laser hair removal.
  4. It’s no secret that hairless skin is desirable and aesthetically pleasing – attractive. This applies to both men and women. The sweater wearing gentleman shirtless on the beach would look and feel so much better, not to mention feel cooler, with a bare skin back.
  5. One of the dreaded and annoying symptoms of menopause is excessive hair growth.  Why not permanently remove your hair before you are battling hormonal changes and menopause symptoms?  Additionally, lasers are attracted to dark hair versus lighter hair such as blonde or GRAY.  Get the most out of laser hair removal and do it NOW before it turns gray!  You’ll have plenty of other symptoms to deal with.
  6. Okay, so I lied. 6 reasons to get laser hair removal. The best reason is “Because you are worth it?”

So what are you waiting for?  Optimize your investment and get laser hair removal NOW before summer is here!

Beyonce & Jay Z Renew Their Wedding Vows

The Carters are drunk in love. Beyoncé and Jay Z have squashed the breakup rumors once and for all by reportedly renewing their vows. They ‘renewed vows in commitment ceremony’ during her 33rd birthday getaway.

Bonnie & Clyde: Beyonce and Jay Z were every bit the power couple as they performed in Chicago on Thursday night for their joint On The Run tour

According to People, the superstar couple, who celebrated their sixth wedding anniversary in April, recently renewed their vows.

“They did have major problems,” a source told the magazine. “But they worked it out and they’ve renewed their vows.”

Over the summer, there were rampant rumors that the couple was headed for divorce. While their relationship has had its ups and downs, “they worked it out for [the sake of] their reputations and for [their 2-year-old daughter] Blue Ivy.”

The two were spotted house hunting in Paris over the past month. They’ve toured a villa near the Seine, a home in a gated community known as “Millionaire’s Row,” and a townhouse next to the Elysee Palace.

They shared their love for the City of Light during their “On the Run Tour” last month. “We love Paris,” Jay Z told the audience during the final two shows. “It’s special to us because we got engaged here, and this is where Blue Ivy was conceived.”

HOW TO TAKE THE PERFECT SELFIE!

Hello lovelies! We all have those moments when we’re looking really good, and we want to show it off in a photo. And as much as we’d like our selfies to seem effortless, the truth is they take a lot of work to get just right! So today, I’ll be sharing some of my favorite tips and tricks for posting that perfect selfie.

how to take the perfect selfie cover image copy

1. Find Your Light
When it comes to taking a selfie, the right lighting is key. Ideally, you’ll want to snap the picture in natural light. I’ve found the best method is to turn towards your light source, which usually ends up being a window. This allows the light to reflect on you and illuminate your face, which is always flattering! If you absolutely must take a selfie at night, try using the same concept, but face a lamp instead.

2. Background Check
Before snapping away, make sure you’re aware of what’s going on behind you in the picture. What may not stand out to you, like a pile of clothes on the floor or a dirty mirror, will be more than obvious to anyone else viewing the photo. If you’re not in a place that would make for a pretty backdrop, go for a neutral wall.

3. All About the Angle
To capture your most flattering angle, extend your arm out in front of you and position the camera so it’s a little above eye level. This position eliminates any double chin and makes your eyes look big and bright. Although this is kind of a golden selfie rule, you can always play around with different angles and poses to see what turns out most flattering for you. One of my favorite little secrets is to turn my head to a 3/4 angle to make my face appear more slim and angular.

4. About Face
Unless you’re going for a #nomakeup selfie, the right beauty products can be a great tool in making your selfie stand out. Since a picture is two-dimensional, hair and facial features will appear much more flattened than they do in real life. You can add some dimension back by highlighting and contouring, and also by pumping up the volume on your hair. Photos tend to wash out your features, so I like to apply my makeup a bit more heavy-handed than usual to make sure I have some color. A bright lip color is the perfect way to add some pop to your pic.

5. Edit Away
The right photo-editing apps can make a huge difference in the look of your selfie. Instagram may have the basics, but there are tons of other online programs and apps out there that do so much more. Here are a few of my favorites:

Photowonder is my absolute go-to for editing selfies. Not only does it have tons of gorgeous filters to choose from, but it also has a whole section of effects to “beautify” your photo. These effects range from a blemish eraser to a “thinify” tool.

VSCO Cam is a more professional photo editing app with really powerful, easy-to-use tools for brightening a photo, changing the temperature, adding contrast, fading, and a lot more. The app also comes with a collection of unique filters that make your selfie look super artsy.

Ribbet is an online photo editor that has some of my all-time favorite filters and tools. Their destination-themed filters like Greek Islands and Cairo create an absolutely beautiful effect, and I love their “soften” tool to blur out the background. They also feature loads of touch-up effects like airbrush and shine remover!

A Beautiful Mess is my go-to when I want to add a graphic element to my photo, like a border or text. The app also has a few pretty filters that are perfect for selfies.

Squareready is great for those photos that just don’t work as a square. This app will take your horizontal or vertical photos and add a white background to make them fit the standard Instagram shape.

Now that you know all the tips and tricks, get out there and go take that perfect selfie! Instagram us your photos @glowclinics!

8 SKIN CARE ROUTINE TIPS EVERY 20-SOMETHING NEEDS TO KNOW NOW

Growing up, I was always the girl who looked 5 years younger than everyone else. And I hated it. In high school, no matter how hard I tried to look older, whether I was masking my face with makeup or dressing in all black attire, I clearly wasn’t fooling anyone. My face resembled that of a pre-pubescent 8th grader — rosy cheeks and all. Even when I turned 21, bouncers would tell me I would be carded for the rest of my life. It wasn’t until a few years ago, though, that I finally stopped trying to fake an older face and started to worry about protecting the one I had. By no means had I developed a ton of wrinkles or fine lines (I still look a lot younger than I am), but I definitely could see some differences in my pigmentation. Which of course made me FREAK OUT.

People always tell you how important it is to take care of your skin, but it isn’t until we reach our mid-twenties that we really start to listen. While the skin we have right now may look supple and serene, most everyone agrees it’s in its “glory years,” and if we don’t start caring for it now, it’s going to be all downhill from here. But a lot of us don’t really understand what we should be doing. So many 20-somethings treat their skin as if it was invincible, when the truth is far from it.

In attempts to solve all my new skin-centric woes, I decided to go to the experts to see what they had to say about skincare in our twenties. Board Certified Dermatologist and Co-director of the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi and celebrity facialist Joanna Vargas gave us a list of the most important things we should know when it comes to our skin.

WHEN IT COMES TO SKINCARE, IT’S IMPORTANT TO START YOUNG

It’s never too early to start taking care of your skin. “Imagine someone who never works out and at 44 starts trying to go to the gym. It’s really impossible to get results at that point without a huge effort and months with no change,” said Vargas. “It’s the same with skin. If you keep it healthy with a good routine from a young age you will be ageless.”

DO NOT SLEEP WITH YOUR MAKEUP ON

Here’s yet another reason to drop that bad habit. Not only will it be harder to break later in life, Vargas said, “Sleeping with makeup on decreases the body’s ability to repair itself.”

GOOD GENES CAN HELP, BUT ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS ARE MORE IMPORTANT

While your family may have good genes, it may not save your skin in the long run if you don’t take care of it. “The way the skin ages depends a lot on genetics, but especially environmental factors such as excessive sun exposure and smoking,” said Dr. Tanzi. Vargas agreed, saying, “If a 20-year-old is tanning and smoking, she will age sooner and faster than a 30-year-old who takes better care of her skin.” We have more control over our bodies than we think.

IT’S HIGHLY IMPORTANT TO WEAR SPF EVERY SINGLE DAY. SERIOUSLY. DO IT.
“It is most important to wear the SPF daily because sun damage is cumulative,” said Dr. Tanzi. If you forget to wear sunscreen one day, it doesn’t mean you can repair it by wearing it the next. The damage has already been done. “The sun you get from daily activities in our 20s will affect the skin for years to come.”

A THREE-STEP MORNING AND BEDTIME ROUTINE IS KEY

Dr. Tanzi recommends maintaing a simple, but effective morning and bedtime routine to ensure you’re doing everything you can to take care of your skin. Step 1: Cleanse. Step 2: Treat — with an antioxidant in the morning and either retinol or glycolic acid at night. Step 3: Protect — Moisturize with SPF in the morning and a basic moisturizer at night.

undefined

DON’T FORGET TO EXFOLIATE
In addition to the above daily routine, Joanna Vargas suggests exfoliating your face twice a week. This will help remove any dead skin cells and keep your face smooth and shiny.

AVOID TOO MUCH SUN ON YOUR FACE, EVEN IF YOU APPLIED THAT SPF

Dr. Tanzi says the number one rule when it comes to skincare is “Avoid too much sun on your face.” A tan may look good now, but the sun “will rob you of youthful skin in the future.” Tanzi suggests skipping the beach or the tanning salon and using a sunless tanner instead. “In your twenties, the most important thing is to protect the skin by not subjecting it to excessive sun exposure and tanning salons. Over one million people visit a tanning salon in the US on a daily basis; the vast majority being Caucasian women under 35. Many of them are trying to “get a base tan” but they are increasing their risk of skin cancer dramatically, accelerating the aging process and causing wrinkles. So just don’t do it.”

WHAT YOU EAT AND DRINK AFFECTS YOUR SKIN

Skincare doesn’t just end at SPF and moisturizer. What you drink and eat has a lot to do with it, too. “Skin and diet are linked, so the better you eat, the better your skin will look,” says Vargas. “Drink green juices daily instead of an afternoon coffee. Your skin will look great and you will have more energy.”

LPG

Is it really effective? Is it scientifically proven?

LPG’s techniques have been used for many years by plastic surgeons, dermatologists, doctors, physical therapists, institutes, and spas through out the world.
Their efficacy has been proven by several clinical and scientific studies. The main study, coordinated by Professor Lafontan (INSERM, Toulouse), demonstrates that the latest generation of CELLU M6 motorized rolls, activates lipolysis, by stimulating fat cells via their ß receptors.
Other than the general total body health care, LPG has several programs that are specific to particular needs. For example; double chin, dull face look, tendency for premature wrinkles, redundant skin, delayed lymphatic/aquaos drainage, etc.

How long does it take to see the results?

You will feel results after the very first use. Treated areas are less compact, less voluminous, and less decongested. Your skin is smoother and softer.
After several sessions, the results are intensified: your orange-peel skin is smoother, and your figure is reshaped and toned!

Does it hurt?

Although it is intense, a good LIPOMASSAGE should never hurt! Instead, during and after the session, you have a true sense of well-being. If the session is painful, the setting is not adequate. Do not hesitate to speak with your practitioner.

Do I need to follow a diet along with my LIPOMASSAGE sessions?

It all depends on your weight and your beauty goals! All sorts of diets can help you to lose weight, but rarely where you want to. In addition, cellulite is usually unaffected by even the strictest diets. LIPOMASSAGE specifically targets these stubborn areas. Ideally, your LIPOMASSAGE program will be paired with a balanced diet and regular physical exercise.

What happens to the released fat?

Sugars and fats are stored by adipocytes in fat tissue. During a LIPOMASSAGE session, the LPG rolls stimulate the lipolysis and activates the fat release.They are thus transformed into a source of energy for the muscles. Therefore, LPG session must be followed by exercise.

Why be active after a LIPOMASSAGE session?

Obviously, being active is recommended for good health – but it also enhances the session results. When you are active after a CELLU M6 treatment, the fat that has been released during your session is quickly burned off by your body’s elevated metabolism.

Do the results last?

Results appear quickly and last. After a program, one session per month is generally sufficient to maintain the effects of the LIPOMASSAGE.

CAVITATION LIPOLYSIS

What is cavitation?

The cavitation is a technique for removing localized fat that hardly responds to diet and physical activity.
This treatment involves applying a low-frequency ultrasound in the adipose tissue, thereby forming mini small bubbles breaking down the adipocyte membrane and allowing the release of the same. This fat is easily removed via the lymphatic system.

In High Aesthetic Clinic treatment Cavitation is accompanied by acupressure sessions to increase effectiveness.
Pressure therapy is a technique to stimulate blood circulation and remove liquids. i.e. acupressure manages to activate the return circulation (venous and lymphatic), stimulating the reabsorption of interstitial fluids and the drainage of these fluids towards organic filters.

How does cavitation work?

The advanced technology of cavitation enables the concentration of energy at precise depth in the tissue, which enables the selective dispersion of fat cells under the skin. The surface of the skin, the veins, the nerves and the muscles remain untouched.

The fat out of the dispersed fat cells flows out in the form of triglycerides into the intercellular fluid, where it decomposes under the influence of enzymes into glycerol and simple fatty acids. The water soluble glycerol enters the circulation and is spent for production of new energy, the insoluble simple fatty acids then travel into the liver, where they are decomposed like any other simple fatty acid, including those consumed from food. On which parts of body does cavitation work on? How is cavitation executed? With cavitation procedure we remove fat deposits and cellulite, which have accumulated on the BELLY, BUTTOCKS, THIGHS, HIPS AND THE UPPER ARMS.

What do you get with the treatment of cavitation?

Reducing volume and cellulite in the treated area.
It is very important to follow the following recommendations for the treatment of cavitation for best results:
Moderate physical exercise at least 3 times per week.
Balanced diet, avoid eating fats and sugars.
Drink 2 liters of water a day.
Using cellulite creams regularly and / or firming (twice daily).
Avoid drinking alcohol, snuff and exciting substances.
It is advisable to follow the recommendations and respect the timing of treatment.

Who should make use of cavitation?

Cavitation is meant for men and women who face problems of localized accumulated fat deposits or of cellulite.
We offer you this unique, revolutionary and tested method of fat burning and body firming. Nowadays the shortage of time and exercise as well as inappropriate nutrition, rapidly increase the number of overweight people.
Stern diet, strong will and hard work in the gym can contribute to weight reduction, yet they usually do NOT remove the inveterate fat cushions on one’s belly, hips and thighs. Finally, this is the hope for men and women who refuse invasive procedures and their potential risks. The cavitation procedure is a painless revolutionary service which does not affect the surrounding tissues and has no side effects.

Duration and number of sessions cavitation:
The approximate cavitation sessions is 40 min.
As for the number of sessions, you should carry between 6 and 10 sessions (depending on the patient) to complete the treatment, but will always be the specialist, after medical assessment, which will determine how many sessions are needed cavitation in each case.
