RAMADAN

Ramadan (/ˌræməˈdɑːn/; Arabic: رمضان‎ Ramaḍān is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, and is observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting (Sawm) to commemorate the first revelation of the Quran to Muhammad according to Islamic belief. This annual observance is regarded as one of the Five Pillars of Islam. The month lasts 29–30 days based on the visual sightings of the crescent moon, according to numerous biographical accounts compiled in the hadiths.

FASTING

Fasting is the willing abstinence or reduction from some or all food, drink, or both, for a period of time. An absolute fast or dry fasting is normally defined as abstinence from all food and liquid for a defined period.

Suffering from deep mouth lines?

With the combined use of filler and anti-wrinkle treatment it’s easy to reduce the appearance of lower face lines.

The patient has a noticeable difference in the appearance of her mouth lines after using 1ml of dermal filler and 9 units of anti-wrinkle treatment carefully placed around the mouth. Doesn’t she look great!

Treatment time is 20-30 minutes with no down time. Inflammation settles after a few days with optimal results seen at 1 week. You can expect treatment to last up to 9-12 months.

If you’re interested or would like to find out more, pop by and see me in clinic.

The misuse of prescription medication is becoming a health emergency in Australia.

This week is Preventing Prescription Medication Misuse Week and aims to raise awareness to the public about this serious concern and how to get help.

In Victoria alone more people die due to prescription medication overdose than on the road.

Which medicines are to blame?

The two main medications: -💊Opioids are commonly use to manage pain, particularly after surgery and end of life care. it can also be used for severe short term painful conditions. Examples include, oxycodone, codeine and fentanyl. -💊Benzodiazepines are a sedative medication, this means they are often prescribed for sleep problems or anxiety. They include diazepam, temazepam and alprazolam. They also have a limited role for short term issues but are not useful for ongoing treatment.

Anyone can become addicted to these medications, particularly if they are using them regularly for a long time. The body will also develop a tolerance which means more is needed to get the same effect.

In a recent survey 90% of Australians could not identify warning signs of opiod dependance.

What are some of the signs and symptoms of abuse or addiction?

- regular or continuous use to cope.

- neglecting responsibilities

- dangerous or risky behaviour

- withdrawal symptoms e.g. craving

- loosing control of substance use

How to get help 🆘

It is important to recognise when your substance use has become a problem and seek medical advice from your General practitioner. There are also a number of great helplines:

📞 Lifeline 13 11 14

📞 Family Drug Support 1300 368 186

If you, a friend or a family member are concerned about addiction please come and see me in clinic for further advice and help.

Take care and stay healthy 😊

I really love giving back as a cosmetic trainer and working with the fantastic team in Brisbane @southsideskin_brisbane @kmfacialaesthetics @laurencosmeticnurse

Mouth Wrinkles? How to Treat Marionette Lines with Dermal Filler

Look sad but don’t feel it? 🙃

In this treatment we’ve used 1ml of dermal filler to replenish the structure of the oral commissures.

As you can see there is visible improvement, with a noticeable reduction in the lines.

Treatment time is 20-30 minutes with no down time. Inflammation settles after a few days with optimal results seen at 2 weeks. You can expect treatment to last from 6 to 9 months.

The great thing about dermal filler is that it can be combined with other treatments, so after the 2 week period for the results to fully settle in, we can consider a top up of dermal filler or even anti-wrinkle treatment to further target the area if desired.

If you’re interested or would like to find out more, pop by and see me in clinic.

Take care and stay healthy 😊
