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. 👄
That feeling when you’ve just had lip filler and you want to show it off to the world. 📱

Selfies.. good or bad?📱 We’ve all taken one if not seen one at some point in our lives, but what’s the impact to our health? The selfie culture is an area that has been researched and studied extensively.
Some researchers believe that selfies can be empowering and display self-love or even be a self-esteem booster. However, when done too regularly there are some distinct adverse effects on our health.
The selfie culture has propagated an undue focus on the way we look and are perceived to others. It has also opened up avenues for comparison and self-evaluation and at times can cause bullying. Which, for vulnerable groups such as children, this can actually harm self-esteem and body image. Similarly, for those who put a high value on validation from others, may suffer also if they have not received the desired feedback. In extreme cases, we’re also seeing the rise of selfie deaths whereby photos have been taken in extreme situations.
Safe to say it’s always best to selfie in moderation as not only can they be addictive but they may also cause harm in excess.
If you do feel that you are suffering from a selfie addiction or would like help in dealing with any of the topics raised, please pop by and see me in clinic.
