Schizophrenia Awareness Week 🧠

Schizophrenia is a medical condition that affects the normal functioning of a person’s brain. Some people do recover and with time some find their symptoms improve, however for many it can be a prolonged illness. Approximately 1 in 100 people will develop it in their lives.

The symptoms can include confused thinking, delusions and hallucinations such as hearing voices that are not actually there.

We don’t yet fully know what causes Schizophrenia but we know that it could be due to a combination of genetics and possible environmental factors, such as the use of drugs.

Schizophrenia is treated using medication and community support programmes. Treatment is necessary to reduce or even eliminate the symptoms.

If you or a family member are concerned about Schizophrenia or would like more information, please pop by and see me in clinic.

Take care and stay healthy 😊

Today is World Lupus Day.

Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body including the skin, joints and organs.

What is an autoimmune disease?

Normally, in our bodies our immune system protects us from bacteria and viruses by producing special proteins to fight these off. In a person who suffers from an autoimmune disease, the immune system isn’t able to tell the difference between a foreign invader and the body’s healthy tissue which can cause inflammation.

At least 5 million people are thought to be affected world wide.

Lupus commonly affects women of child bearing age but can also affect children and men.

Lupus can cause a number of symptoms ranging from a facial rash to debilitating fatigue to joint pain. A common myth is that Lupus is contagious and is similar to HIV. This is not the case at all and often understanding of this complex disease is quite limited.

Diagnosis can sometimes be difficult due to the intermittent nature of symptoms. It is best diagnosed with a number of different medical professionals including the General Practitioner.

There is no current cure for Lupus, however it can be managed successfully with treatment. Treatment is aimed at reducing symptoms and preventing long term organ damage.

World Lupus Day aims to promote the impact that Lupus has on people and in turn bring more resources to end the suffering from this disease.

If you are concerned about Lupus or have any further questions, feel free to pop by and see me in clinic.

Take care and stay healthy 😊

PRP “Vampire” Facials | First Treatment - Before and After - Analysis

Join me as I demonstrate microneedling with PRP on a first time patient. This treatment uses your own blood platelets to stimulate new cell growth.

NOTES

In this video I demonstrate injecting PRP using manual injection as well as using a multi-pin injector. These techniques allow for the PRP to be injected in a more controlled way, which is why our lovely patient came out looking a lot less bloody then more famous outpatients.

Furthermore, I also insist on using anaesthetic cream as without, it will be a very painful experience.

Finally, something to note is that this treatment is complementary to other beauty treatments such as anti-wrinkle and fillers, which you will find work really well together.

PROCEDURE

To ensure patient comfort, local anaesthetic cream is applied on the face and left on for 45 minutes.

During this time, a few tablespoons of your blood will be taken in preparation for the procedure.

It is important to make sure you are well hydrated and have had something to eat before your session.

Once the blood has been collected, it is then transferred to special vials which are then placed in a centrifuge.

The centrifuge spins the blood very fast to separate the different components. Science is AMA..ZING.

Now that the platelets have been separated from the rest of the blood, they are extracted ready for injecting.

As the procedure involves a needle you will expect minimal amounts of bleeding and inflammation.

The main problem areas are targeted manually using a fine needle.

Manual injection is useful to allow for different pressures to be applied to different treatment areas.

A multi needle injector is then used to deliver the rest of the PRP to a larger surface area so that no single platelet is wasted. It’s your precious blood after all.

ANALYSIS

Looking at the before and after photos we can immediately see a dramatic reduction in the static fine lines that make up the wrinkles.

On the forehead we can see that the depth of the lines have softened with one of them completely disappearing.

Looking further down on the face, the length of the horizontal chin crease, well see for yourself, it’s halved in size.

3 days later, the inflammation had fully settled and the results were still apparent.

Fast forward 3 weeks and the results have regressed from it’s initial rejuvenation.

But looking closely we can see that there are still marked improvements from our starting point.

On the forehead we can see that the depth of the lines have reduced.

You will also notice that her nasolabial lines have also become softer in appearance, leaving less shadowing to the face.

And on the chin we can also see a reduction in the depth of the horizontal chin crease.

This makes the patient an excellent candidate for a second treatment of PRP for further rejuvenation.

Women’s Health | Free Breast Cancer Screening for Ages 50-74

Are you aged between 50-74? Are you up to date with your breast cancer screening?

If the answer is no to the above then it’s time to get screening.

According to the Australian Institute of Health & Welfare, only half of women in the target age group are taking up their two yearly free mammograms to test for breast cancer.

Breast screening is important for the early detection of breast cancer. The earlier breast cancer is detected the sooner it can be treated with more favourable outcomes. Breast screening also helps to provide women with reassurance following a normal result.

Breast screening is performed using a machine called a mammogram that pushes pressure onto the breasts whilst images are taken. This usually lasts for 10 seconds at a time.

These images are then analysed by a specialist doctor and the results are sent to yourself and your GP. You will then be put on a register to remind you to return every 2 years until the age of 74.

If you have any concerns regarding breast cancer or would like advice on how to check your breasts come and see me in clinic today.

For women who are eligible for a free breast screen visit https://breastscreen.qld.gov.au/

Take care & stay healthy
