TAHQ - The Aesthetics HQ - News | Blog
 
 
 

We are all unique – just like everyone else. As self-conscious as you may be about flaws in your physique, remember that most people suffer with the same thing: stubborn fat pockets. Whether it’s your saddlebags, your tummy or your love handles, liposuction may be the solution for you.
Liposuction is ideal if you’re:

  1. Healthy
  2. At a normal weight for your age, height and sex; and you are maintaining this.
  3. You have stubborn fatty pockets that do not shift (or move very little!), despite you eating healthily and exercising regularly.
  4. You have a healthy, active lifestyle
  5. You don’t have lots of excess skin
  6. You want long lasting results and you’re prepared to maintain them
  7. You are looking for minimal downtime – quick post-op recovery


For complimentary consultations, please call (011) 039 2982 or (011) 234 2009 to book an appointment with Dr Claire Jacobsohn.

Christmas and New Year are approaching, and it is the season for overindulgence. No one is in the gym, alcohol replaces water intake, and fatty, sugary foods replace the sensible choices while we are on holiday.

Dr Claire advises on how best to look after your liver during the festive season.

When looking for supplements to assist your liver in detoxifying the excesses of the festive season, look for the following ingredients:
B-vitamins. B2; B3; B6 and B12 are extremely important in the festive season
•    Milk thistle
•    Folic acid
•    Magnesium
•    Alpha lipoic acid
•    N-acetyl cysteine
•    MIC injections (ask at The Aesthetics HQ for our custom brand!)
•    Glutathione infusions
•    Vitamin C
•    Myers’ cocktail

Dr Claire recommends increasing your intake of the following foods to best help remedy alcohol, caffeine, tobacco and fatty food excess:
•    Garlic and onions
•    Broccoli and cauliflower. These contain I3C to assist with liver detoxification
•    Foods containing high amount of vitamin C – try citrus fruits like lemons and limes, or grapefruit
•    Leafy green veggies
•    Foods high in omegas – olive oil, hemp seeds, fish
•    Avocado
•    Green tea – high in catechins
•    Beetroot and carrots – high in flavonoids and b-carotene
•    Turmeric
•    Cabbage

How to deal with sensitive skin Sensitive skin a description of skin that is any of:

• Extremely dry
• Prone to redness/blushing/flushing
• Blisters, breaks open or develops bumps or pustules

As a response to:
Contact allergens
Eczema
Psoriasis
Rosacea
Acne
Excessive exposure to the elements such as sun and wind, or excessive heat or cold

There is no test to determine if you have sensitive skin – sensitivity is a description rather than a diagnosis. Raw nerve endings in the skin become exposed and skin is painful with the abovementioned responses. For this reason, descriptions such as hypoallergenic don’t always mean much in terms of whether you would be likely to react to your products or skin care. So many different agents can potentially cause skin reactions or contact allergies. Even high amounts of minerals in tap water in certain geographical areas can cause contact dermatitis! Healthy lifestyles with lots of fruit and veggies, and lots of water may help to protect your skin.

Dr Claire Jacobsohn recommends the following for sensitive skin: When looking for skin care, consult with your Aesthetic practitioner. You can avoid expensive purchases that will cause a reaction by consulting with a professional first!

Avoid the following ingredients in your products:
• Anti-bacterial agents
• Fragrances. Even “natural” fragrances like menthol, peppermint, camphor, lavender, citrus or eucalyptus can cause sensitivity.
• Alcohol – especially in toners
• Retinol or alpha hydroxy acids (unless your doctor recommends such products).
• Acetone
• Formaldehyde
• Propylene glycol
• Urea When purchasing or trying a new product, don’t apply it to your entire face to see if you may react. First test the product in an area such as behind your ears. Leave it overnight, and see if you react. If you still do not react, use a small amount of your product to the skin on the side of one eye. If you do not react, the product should be safe for you to use.

Dr Claire also recommends: Sensitive skins must always use:
• Sunblock – preferably avoid chemical sunscreens. Look for titanium dioxide or zinc oxide as these are less irritating. Always wear an SPF of 30 or higher.
• Moisturize
