Take your face
to the GYM!
Your face is your calling card. With it, you make your first and most lasting impression, presenting an image that will remain in the memory of everyone you meet. Think about it. How many times have you heard people say they can't remember names, but they never forget a face? Fine Lines…Wrinkles…Sagging…Discoloration…These are the earmarks of age that rob your face of its youth and vibrancy, leaving instead the impression of fatigue, dullness and age… You don't feel old.... So why let an aging appearance hold you back? The solution could be as fast, easy and affordable as a Micro-current Facial, also known as a non-surgical facelift. Our ‘Skin Gym’ or Non-Surgical Face Lift is a leading-edge system designed to stimulate lymphatic points, oxygenate the skin, tone muscle and firm ageing facial tissue. This treatment produces a 45% increase in the number of elastin fibres in the dermis and the fibre length doubled on average. Treated tissue also receives a 35% increase in blood circulation, along with a 10% increase in collagen thickness within the connective tissues. Micro current technology works in harmony with the body to produce outstanding results! Regular treatments lift and revitalise the skin by toning the facial muscles that support the skin. The effect is like a gym workout for the muscles of the face. The newly toned muscles help plump out lines, reducing sagging and wrinkles - an incredibly effective anti-ageing treatment. Results are visible after the first treatment! The micro-current is similar to the body's own electrical nervous stimulation and is completely safe.

Last week Bek & I made the trek to Sydney for Bek to complete her final class & receive her EXPERT STATUS. It was quite a big day, neither of us are comfortable driving in the city & had to get up very early to battle the peek hour city traffic to arrive at 9am...find a park etc… Then we stuck around to attend a triple product release at Dermalogica which finished at 8.30pm. We had to stop at the twin servo’s on the freeway to top up the tank. Now, I’m not sure if I should blame exhaustion, city driving stress or just a ‘blonde’ or ‘seniors’ moment but, what happened next was not a lot of fun… We pulled up at the bowser & I begun putting the fuel into the car… I had put in a bit over 7 Litres when I suddenly realised I was putting UNLEADED PETROL into my DIESEL tank! For anyone reading this who doesn’t know how bad this is… it is EXTREMELY BAD! We had to get the car towed, Bek’s fiancé, Ben had to drive down to pick us up, I had to call my husband & tell him what I’d done, had to get my brother in law to drive me down to Wyong a few days later to pick up the car… The mechanic told me it happens quite often & he’s seen a guy have to pay $12,000 for repairs after he tried to continue driving his vehicle! It’s behind us now, & lots of laughs have been had at my expense, but what else can you do but laugh…
Quite a simple mistake, & easily done, but it led me to thinking about skincare products & ingredients (especially now that Bek has her ‘EXPERT’ Status. There is such a huge & complicated array of ingredients that are used in skin care products. They all have their specific purpose with benefits to solve different skin conditions. I often see & hear people recommending a particular product to their friends that they believe has worked for them, but unless their friend has EXACTLY the same skin type & condition it is probably NOT the right product containing the correct ingredients for them. If we had been driving Bek’s car, the unleaded petrol would have been the perfect choice… but the same product could have been disastrous in my car… It’s just a car & could be fixed, but you only get ONE skin, it’s a lot more difficult to fix if you do damage with unsuitable products or ingredients.

How does Hair Removal with IPL work?
Pulsed Light Therapy, or better known as IPL Therapy is used for Hair
Removal, but can also be used for Facial and Body Vein removal, Vascular
Birthmarks, Pimples, Facial Rejuvination and Collagen Stimulation.
How does the hair removal system work?
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light Therapy) hair removal procedure produces a
high intensity flash of filtered light from the applicator head, which
has been placed in contact with the skin. The energy from the light
source is absorbed by the pigment melanin, which is the chromophore,
which gives hair its colour. The hair rapidly absorbs this filtered
light and transfers it to the surrounding cells that in turn are
converted into heat raising them to a temperature of 70 degree
Centigrade or more. The heating denatures the cells making them
incapable of producing further hair growth.
How is the treatment carried out?
glass applicator is placed in contact with skin surface and the light
is pulsed through it onto the skin. The applicator is then moved to the
neighbouring area and the process is repeated.
Who can be treated?
hairs are most easily treated due to the high concentration of melanin
that gives maximum absorption and conversion of light energy into heat.
Very fair hair has less melanin and consequently less heat is produced,
simply raising the fluence output from the IPL treats such hair. White
hair has no melanin and cannot be efficiently treated by most IPL
machines. Our Adena IPL machine at Bliss Beauty however CAN treat white
hair with a secondary applicator head using new technology!
upper skin layer of the epidermis also contains melanin and the
concentration increases when the skin is exposed to UV light. It is
therefore necessary to treat dark skin with less energy to avoid
generation of excess heat and pain in the skin. The IPL software allows
you to adjust the treatment parameters for different hair and pigment
SUITABLE FOR ANY SKIN COLOUR & HAIR TYPE
Does it hurt?
the light energy is absorbed by the pigment melanin, the discomfort
depends upon the concentration of melanin in the epidermis and the hairs
combined. Consequently it hurts more in dark skinned people and those
with dense dark hair hairs. No anaesthesia is required and most patients
describe the pain as moderate and acceptable
(as if an elastic band has been flicked against the skin)
Does you need to shave prior to the treatment?
hairs should be 1 to 2mm long when you come in for the treatment so it
is possible to mark out the treatment area. Long hairs take up the
energy and prevent all of it reaching to the hair root. Therefore hair
is trimmed just before for maximum transmission of the energy. If the
hair is normally shaved and can be seen when shaven then you can shave
right up to the day of treatment. Although waxing, plucking and
bleaching should not be done. By avoiding any other form of epilating
and waxing 4 weeks before the treatment it ensures as many follicles as
possible contain hair thus can be destroyed by the light
Why do hairs "grow" after treatment?
other light depilation treatments, hairs are not vaporised by the IPL
treatment. The heat kills the hair roots but the hairs remain in the
skin and often become attached to the epidermis. They will fall out
after 1 to 3 weeks as the epidermis renews itself. During this period it
will seem that the hairs are growing a little faster as the epidermis
pushes them out.
How can you tell if the treatment has worked when the hairs are not removed immediately?
Indications such as colour of Hair becoming charcoal black and
expanding in size or a Red ring around each follicle is often seen a few
minutes after the treatment. These are good indications that sufficient
heating of the follicles has taken place. Unfortunately this is not
always seen and we have seen many patients with successful treatments
results without the post treatment signs.
What are the side effects?
visible light should be completely safe, so no special precautions are
needed apart from glasses for the brightness generated from flash lamp.
The skin of some people can be quite red immediately after treatment and
very rarely small blisters as from excessive sun exposure can occur.
However, most people experience no side effects at all and the described
skin reactions as above usually disappear within hours to few days.
Unlike electrolysis the IPL treatment is non-invasive
How many treatments are necessary?
hair in the growth phase can be treated. The number of hairs in this
phase varies from 20% to 90% depending on the body site. The lengths of
the growth cycles also vary from 6 to 24 weeks depending on the body
site. For most people three to five treatments are sufficient to clear
an area of hair. After the first treatment most patients get a
significant reduction in hair density also new grown hairs tend to
become finer. It is important to know that the first treatment is
believed to synchronise the anagen (growth) phase of the non-anagen
hairs. This may cause what seems to be regrowth but actually just
sleeping hairs starting to grow at the same time (new growth) This in
turn makes next treatment(s) more effective
How do I prepare for treatment?
tanning 1 month ahead of the treatment and immediately after treatment
the skin is particularly sensitive to UV light and strong sunlight
should be avoided for 4-5 days.
How Long Does The Treatment Take?
The Facial treatment usually takes 10 minutes whereas both legs and an entire back take approximately 1hour
Is It Permanent?
authorities would agree that using current laser and IPL technology it
is possible to permanently remove hair. Histology studies have found
destroyed and denatured hair follicles cells in post treatment. A recent
study showed that the percentage reduction in hairs after treatment
using IPL systems are well above 80%.
You have heard of microdermabrasion, but never knew what
exactly it was. Here is an explanation.
Microdermabrasion is one of the more
recent skin-care techniques to have crossed over from Hollywood to the
mainstream. It's being advanced as an "instant facelift" -- an
effective alternative to costlier and more invasive procedures like plastic surgery,
chemical peels and Botox injections. Recently, more and more men are trying it,
instead of pursuing cosmetic surgery.
So what exactly is microdermabrasion, what does it promise
and what effect does it actually have on your face? Here, we'll look at the
science behind microdermabrasion, see what a treatment is like and find out
what it does to your skin.
Microdermabrasion is a general term for the application of
tiny rough grains to buff away the surface layer of skin. Many different
products and treatments use this method, including medical procedures, salon
treatments and creams and scrubs that you apply yourself at home. It's usually
done to the face, chest, neck, arms or hands. Before we can understand how
microdermabrasion does what it does, it's important to understand how skin
Your skin is made up of two main layers, the epidermis and
the dermis. The epidermis is the layer closest to the outside world. It's a set
of dead skin cells on top of another layer of cells that are in the process of
maturing. The topmost layer is called the stratum corneum. The stratum corneum
mostly acts as a barrier between the outside world and the lower skin layers.
It keeps all but the smallest molecules from getting through.
When you put lotions or creams on your skin, some of the
moisture passes through the stratum corneum, but not all of it. This layer is
home to many minor skin imperfections like fine wrinkle lines and blemishes.
All of the action in microdermabrasion takes place at the
level of the stratum corneum. Since it only really targets the epidermis (and
not the dermis), it is more accurate to call it micro-epi-dermabrasion.
Affecting deeper layers of skin would be painful and harmful.
Microdermabrasion works especially well as a way to clean
out clogged pores. The idea is that if you remove or break up the stratum
corneum, the body interprets that as a mild injury and rushes to replace the
lost skin cells with new and healthy ones.
This process has a few beneficial effects. With the stratum
corneum gone, the skin's surface is improved. The healing process brings with
it newer skin cells that look and feel smoother. Some of the skin's visible
imperfections, like sun damage, blemishes and fine lines, are removed. Also,
without the stratum corneum acting as a barrier, medicinal creams and lotions
are more effective because more of their active ingredients and moisture can
find their way down to the lower layers of skin. As microdermabrasion temporarily
removes some moisture from the skin, it is always followed by the application
of moisturizing creams.
Studies suggest that repeated microdermabrasion
treatment at regular intervals may influence the way the lower layers of skin
grow, as well, removing deeper blemishes over time. Some evidence seems to
indicate that the rapid loss of skin moisture may be what triggers the lower
skin layers to work overtime in speeding healthy cells up to the surface.
The vacuum action of the machine has four main functions:
It pulls and
raises a small section of skin to work on.
It creates mild
swelling and brings some of the impurities to the surface.
It collects the dead skin for disposal.
The technician steadily moves the tool over the target area,
applying even and steady pressure to remove the stratum corneum without
affecting the lower skin layers. A standard session usually consists of one to
three passes with the tool. In most cases, the patient is then asked to apply
specialized lotions and creams to the affected area between sessions. This
rehydrates the area and assists in promoting healthier new skin.
Several sessions spaced throughout the year are usually
recommended for maximum effectiveness.

What an awesome time we all had pampering a lovely bunch of princesses on Saturday! All the girls enjoyed a variety of pampering treatments. After their fizzy foot soak one princess was heard to say to the princess next to her "oh! You just wait till you get this done" as she was being treated to a fruity foot massage!
After her Cookies & Cream Facial another Princess was heard telling her friend "I am SOOO having MY Birthday Party here!"
I must say the Chocolate fountain went down a treat as well! Next time I think I will place a large platter underneath it though to catch some of the drips!
Tip for future princesses: the bath fizzies in your gift bag may look pretty & smell yummy, but don't eat them - they don't taste so good! LOL
If you'd like to have your little princess & her friends pampered for a birthday or special occasion, call us on 4938 3809 to book your date!

HERE’S WHY WE ARE SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS MACHINE!
is a highly effective weight control, centimetre loss, pain management,
cellular detoxification and physical therapy system that is fast, easy
and effective. It uses far infrared heat that penetrates twice as deep
as other heat sources to get toxins and wastes trapped in pockets below
the surface of the skin.
The secret of the Formostar is
the way the deep heat therapy activates the function of natural enzymes
and metabolism within the tissues. You can burn 1200 calories in just one 50 minute session and potentially see and feel
results from your very first session. The best fact is that
unlike some of the body wraps that you see advertised which you lose
centimetres in water weight, the loss of centimetres from Formostar is
permanent (pending you don’t eat a large pizza every night).
So to sum it up:
- Remove fat without surgery or diets
- Lose centimetres
- Smooth cellulite
- Soften your skin
- Detoxify the body
- Relieve pain
- Helps with menstrual relief
- Stretch mark reduction
- Post pregnancy recovery
almost seems too good to be true and we thought that too, until we did
some research and talked to some of the salon owners who have been
successfully operating this Formostar unit. Without getting into too
much mumbo-jumbo, the reason that it works totally makes sense. If you
want to read a clinical study or more articles on Infrared Therapy or if
you want to enlighten your knowledge on this subject go to
www.formostar.com.au. You will really be impressed!
of the best features is that you don’t even have to take your clothes
off to do this. Just lie down on a comfortable massage table on your
back, get the special silicone bandages wrapped around the problem areas
(thighs, waist, stomach, arms, chest for men) and relax for 50
minutes. You can read a book or magazine to help you pass the time.
will sweat so don’t wear any super nice clothing, instead, wear light
cotton track pants and a sweatshirt – since we don’t want the silicone
bandages to be applied directly to the skin.
has been manufactured in Germany since 1983 and over 5,000,000
treatments have been carried out so it’s tried and tested. For
weightloss, we expect you to lose a minimum of ½ kilo in three sessions,
1 ½ kilos in six and 3-4 kilos in 10 sessions. This ties in directly
with the clinical study and results achieved around the world. There
are over 150 Formostar machines in Australasia and we will be the only
place with it around here.
The Formostar was originally
developed for rheumatoid arthritis and joint mobility problems so it’s
also fantastic for pain relief. The infrared rays penetrate deeply to
deaden the nerve endings and create an analgesic effect. See some of
the testimonials on the Formostar website.
The demand for this treatment will become tremendous once word of mouth gets around on it.
