Every day horror stories are published in the news about botched lips following dodgy lip filler procedures. Common themes tend to be inexperienced injectors and not understanding facial anatomy.
Other than being an art form, cosmetic injectables are also a science. The face carries a number of important vessels, which, if injected with filler can cause complications such as skin tissue death. This can be avoided by choosing an injector who understands where all of these vessels lie, how deep to inject the product and how to deal with such complications if they happen. And of course how to keep those lips looking gorgeous at the same time.💋 So if you’re thinking about having fillers this weekend, I’m encouraging you all to do your due diligence and research a fully qualified trained cosmetic practitioner to keep your lips as happy, healthy and sexy as these ones. 👄
So far this year rates of flu virus have almost doubled from what they were during the same time last year.
Most people will recover from the flu, however young children and older adults may be seriously affected. Symptoms can include feeling shivery with fever 🤒, headache 🤕, muscle aches, sore throat, sneezing 🤧, tiredness and a dry cough. If you are concerned about these symptoms or they worsen it is important to seek medical advice immediately.
There are some easy steps to avoid getting the flu, from the flu vaccination, to covering your mouth when you sneeze or cough, washing your hands regularly particularly after being in communal areas like the toilet, cleaning surfaces regularly at home and avoiding close contact with others when you’re not feeling well.
So with the school holidays about to kick off are you protected from the flu? 😷
Happy Friday🎉 What are you guys doing this weekend?
We’re so blessed to be living in Australia where the sun shines, the beaches are plentiful and the forests are beautiful.
So let’s make the most of it and take time away from your computer screens and enjoy the outdoors. Not only will this boost your physical and mental health but it’ll give your eyes a chance to reset and prepare for the week ahead.
And what a week it’s been for me! From general medicine to contraceptive coil fittings to filming a new promotional video to lots of cosmetic treatments! 💉
My top tip for this week is to take some time looking after you. Very often in clinic I have patients coming in with burnout or work stress, whilst we can’t always control our workflow, it is possible to make effort spending our free time effectively to benefit our health. This could be as easy as meeting with a few friends or a paddle in the local pool or a trip to the beach 🏊♂️ If you are suffering from burnout or stress don’t bottle it up. Help is out there. Please come by and see me in clinic if you have any concerns or would like more information.
