Four cosmetic treatments to help get the look you want

In today’s day and age, there are loads of different ways we can get the look we want. Remember and do proper research before you go through with any treatment, it’s a big commitment and we should make sure we’re doing them for the right reasons.

1 ) Cheek and Neck lift – A mini face lift, this procedure consists of multiple operations that try to tighten loose skin and get rid of wrinkles. The cheek/neck is a really good procedure to get rid of sagging under the jaw and tighten/tone muscles in your neck.

2) Fat Reduction – Theres a wide variety of different treatments these days. You can get bodylite, coolsculpting and much much more. In the 60s medical professionals started noticing people lost a lot of weight when they lost a part of their stomach. This usually happened when parts stomach had to be removed due stomach ulcers. Weight loss surgeries have since been developed and refined over the years.

There are loads of pros and cons to Fat reduction surgery. You can get a Gastric Bypass Surgery which was developed in the 60s. The surgery splits the stomach into two parts, the first stomach will collect food. The second parts only function is to create digestive fluids. These fluids are passed onto the small intestine to help digest the food. You feel fuller faster because of your smaller stomach. You’ll also consume fewer calories because some of the digestive systems are skipped.

The next Surgery you can get is Gastric Band. The gastric band surgery puts an inflatable band around the stomach. This creates a smaller upper stomach and a larger lower one, this makes foods pass through slower and makes you feel full faster.

You can get a Gastric Sleeve which removes almost three-quarters of the stomach.

A new form of fat reduction that is being used is called Bodytite. This uses Radio Frequency Assisted Lipo Tightening technology to melt and remove fat. The process makes your skin feel tighter and less saggy its a really popular treatment for men. You can check out Snowberry Lane for this treatment.

You could also try CoolSculpting, this has been an excellent way to redefine your body. It’s a very popular treatment that involves removing fat from areas that are quite hard to lose fat from with exercise. Places like the back, arms, thighs, chin etc. The good thing is this isn’t a surgery and involves using cooling methods to target and destroy fat cells. Check out

3)Botox – Botox is one of the biggest cosmetic advancements in the past 10 years. Botox is used to relax facial muscles that create wrinkles.

4)Lip Filler – Lips lose their natural volume as we get older. Injecting fillers into lips can revert these changes. There are lots of photos online that show bad examples of people who have had bad results from lip fillers. However, these people have probably gone to a bad clinic. Do proper research before and make sure you’re going to a well known, high quality clinic.





Things to know before you get a piercing

It doesn’t really matter what age you are, when you’re considering getting a piercing you should know the following:

  1. Get a proper reputable piercing specialist! – There’s no point skipping out on this, don’t go to a friend who’s practicing, don’t copy the girls in Parent Trap or you’ll be in trouble! Get a reputable professional who knows their stuff! If you get a piercing done badly, you could be left with scarring, disfigurement, pain and it could lead to cysts growing under the skin.
  2. Fire some questions towards the piercer – Ask them what they’re going to use to pierce you, ask them if it’s cleaned, ask them how long they’ve been doing it and if they’ve ever come across any complications.  You’re not being difficult! you’re keeping yourself safe and remember it’s your body so ask all the questions you want.
  3. The specialist should sterilize the equipment they use after every piercing – It doesn’t matter where you go.. they should always sterilize the equipment. You’ll find properly certified tattoo and piercing parlors have an autoclave machine. This uses high temperatures and steam to sterilize the “gun” before and after each use. If they don’t clean the equipment properly there is a risk of bacterial, fungal and viral infections.
  4. You can be allergic to earrings – Some people are allergic to certain metals, most of the time it’s nickel. So if you know you’re allergic to anything let your piercer know.
  5. The piercing does hurt – but not for long. It lasts like a second, two at max! Remember your skins getting pierced with a needle. If you’re nervous or really scared there’s a chance you can faint so let your piercer know and they can let you lie down. I have to do this everytime I go get blood taken, my body just shuts down!
  6. It could be sore for a couple of days – The instant pain from the piercing will disappear quite quickly but you could have some swelling or redness. This will last for around 2 days at max!
  7. Double check how you look after it before you leave – Understanding how you clean your body/piercing is vital in preventing an infection.
  8. Understand the risks – areas like your nose have more risks than other areas. The upper ear has further risks too, this is because places with more cartilage tend to have more problems that can occur.
