This International Women’s Day, I had the pleasure of being invited to talk at the Multicultural Families Organisation event held at TAFE Queensland, helping to inspire and empower women with the ability to challenge negativity.
The day was a great success filled with beautiful performances by delegates from all over the world.

Join me as I attend an educational seminar at the Versace Hotel Gold Coast, covering everything you need to know about Women’s Health and how to reduce your risk of breast cancer.
Set in the opulent Palazzo Versace, this one day seminar focussed on Women’s Health from how to detect breast cancer, how it’s managed today and how to reduce your chances of getting it. The conference also covered other important topics like bleeding in pregnancy, IVF treatments and egg freezing.
Breast cancer is the most common cause of cancer in women in Australia - other than non-melanoma skin cancer.
It is the abnormal growth of cells lining the breast lobules or ducts, it may also affect men. There are several types of breast cancer and management will vary accordingly.
Some people have no symptoms and the cancer may be detected through routine screening. However, others may experience symptoms such as; feeling a new lump, sore nipples, nipple discharge or turning in, changes to the size or shape of the breast, skin dimpling or even red or swollen breasts.
It is important that if you are experiencing any of the above or are concerned that you seek medical help.
Currently in Australia, women aged between 50-74 years of age are invited to free screening mammograms every 2 years. Women aged 40-49 and over 75 are also eligible to receive free mammograms.
Treatment depends on the breast cancer found, but may typically include radiotherapy, chemotherapy, surgery or hormone therapy.
We now know that the risk of breast cancer can be reduced by lowering alcohol consumption and maintaining a healthy body weight.
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 😊
