Full Multi-layered face regeneration Combi treatment

3D multi-layered specific treatments are designed to work at different depths, in different planes of the skin. 

The field of Aesthetics is increasingly recognising the need for a multifaceted approach, incorporating the muscles – to achieve lift or reduce movement lines, as well as correcting volume loss to improve facial contours. I choosed for you the best treatments in order to improve the skin from inside to outside in 3 different layers, creating a total skin regeneration. Results of the treatment can last 2-3 years.

Let’s focus in each one layer.

When looking at skin treatments, what we need to address first is : where does the problem lie. Is the problem lying in the epidermis? Is the problem in the dermis or is the problem down below?

How We Tackle Acne, Clogged Pores & Blackheads

When we talk about texture, colour & volume, each treatment falls into a certain layer. Often if people are coming in concerned with the texture of their skin, the problem is usually within the top layer. Quite frequently there’s a build up of dead cells that need to be removed, which as a result would make it smoother. Sometimes muscle contractions such as repetitive movement like squinting or frowning doesn’t necessarily affect the depth because it’s actually the muscle that’s causing it, but it can create permanent divots in that top layer.

Addressing Fine Lines, Wrinkles & Larger Pores

So regarding skin that has fine lines, wrinkles, maybe larger pores- the problem is coming from a little bit deeper down in the epidermis. So we still may do an exfoliating procedure but we’re going to be a little more aggressive and go a little bit deeper. Now we’re talking about procedures like microneedling, mesotherapies, prx-33 peeling, that works on both two skin layers. That process stimulates the body to shed the outer layer but produce new collagen, so we’re actually affecting a little bit deeper now.

Correcting Facial Volume Loss

What brings so many clients into the clinic is concerns about volume loss ( or as they call it…drooping!) Volume loss in the skin can start as early as your 20’s. Let’s think of your skin like a mattress where the epidermis is your sheets, the dermis is memory foam and then your subcutaneous layer; where the fat is, is the actual mattress. What happens first is the epidermis gets thicker and the dermis gets thinner. As we lose volume in this area, it affects the texture of the epidermis. The subcutaneous layer loses fat as we age and the fat pads drop along with muscle loss. To top things off our bone starts to shrink, so as we get older we’ve got multiple things happening in the skin.There are many products, either based on hyaluronic like Profhilo, radiesse, or poly-lactic acid like Sculptra or hyaluronic fillers that can correct volume loss in the dermal layer.

Speaking about skin treatments for volume, one of the only treatments that is available out there to actually stimulate these deeper layers is Hifu Ultherapy. Ultherapy is an ultrasound device that goes through the skin, heating it up to a point where it causes a thermal injury, stimulating new collagen. So with the ultrasound device in Ultherapy the technicians can actually see the layers of the skin and the target layer where the collagen fibres are lying. That tissue will get heated up to between 60-70 degrees Celsius and over the course of the next 3-6 months we’re going to see a slight volumizing. When we do it in combination with either HA fillers or Profhilo just so that we can speed the process up but Ultherapy is a great treatment for getting down really deep, but safely.

Our combi treatment will focuse on both all layers of the skin.

  1. PRX-T33 Peeling + Hydro-vital skinboosting – week 1

PRX-T33, a combination of TCA and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) quickly penetrates the dermis (one of the skin’s layers), activating a process of regeneration without attacking the epidermis (the outer layer of skin contains 33% TCA and 67% hydrogen peroxide. The peel is incredibly effective. The combination of TCA and hydrogen peroxide stimulates the dermis non-invasively, while minimising the aggressive exfoliation of the dermis. PRX-T33 promotes stimulation of fibroblasts and growth factors without causing inflammation or damaging the skin. The treatment can be performed at any time of year, unlike peeling, because it is not photosensitising, and it is suitable for all skin types.

Mesotherapy treatments are recommended as a combined treatment with a Chemical peel to remove the surface layers of the epidermis, this allows for a much deeper transdermal delivery from the mesotherapy treatment. Mesotherapy works by creating tiny punctures into the epidermis of the skin to allow for the transdermal delivery of vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Mesotherapy is a well known facial rejuvenation treatment which is used for skin rejuvenation and hydration from the inside out giving a bright, firm rejuvenated complexion. Mesotherapy is a highly effective rejuvenating treatment, replacing hyaluronic acid which provides deep hydration, toning benefits and cell regeneration.

 

2 .Hifu  ultherapy + Profhilo – week 2

HIFU (high intensity focused ultra sound) based treatments target the SMAS layer, a protective fibrous coating of the muscle and blood vessels, below the skin.  By tightening the SMAS, HIFU has a skin lifting effect – rather like pulling the ground sheet taught, providing a basis for treatment of the more superficial layers.  HIFU a great way to prepare the skin around the neck and jawline before using collagen stimulating treatments based treatment of skin laxity (Profhilo).

H-HA in Profhilo provides a stable HA architecture in the dermis. This gives a volumetric effect – the Lift effect.
There are 5 profhilo injection points for your area of concern, they stimulate 4 different types of collagen and elastin due to the slow release of hyaluronic acid. It is this stimulation that results in significant improvement of tissue quality; take a look at the profhilo before and after image below to see.

It delivers great results as a treatment on its own or in combination with other aesthetics treatments currently on offer. Profhilo is the first BDDE-free stabilised injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) based product for treating skin laxity. With one of the highest concentrations of HA on the market (64mg / 2ml) it is not only boosting and hydrating the skin, but also remodels the ageing and sagging tissue.

How Fashion Week Is Like for a Makeup Artist

I have never taken my mind off being a makeup artist…This is what I was born to do. When I was younger, I was obsessed with makeup! I couldn’t wait to head down to the drugstore to buy the newest eye shadow and lip stick. Only thing was, I never really realized you could actually have a career in beauty! Once I got my first taste of makeup in a fashion week, I was hooked.

One of my first times in a fashion Show, someone told me ‘As a makeup artist you’re there to provide a service. Your job is to not only make someone look beautiful, but feel beautiful. Be the quietest and positive person in the room. Someone is trusting you to create a beautiful image of themselves, always show up and do that.’ I’m so thankful for that.

Each show is very individual and stands for itself because every designer’s also completely different, has a whole different cut. Each designer has a whole individual vision and accordingly any makeup look is to be considered individually. Clear everything comes out of my hands, accordingly, it is one direction taste.

During a Fashion Week I get my inspiration from so many different things: people’s stories about life, different cultures, plants and nature.

The biggest challenge of my career has been wanting to do everything! I always say I wish I could clone myself so that I could do everything for work and be a full-time mommy at the same time, and I know that so many women feel the same way. It has been a challenge for me to step back, take a moment to breathe, and to accept the fact that I logistically just cannot do everything and be in every event at the same time!

Why I love working with brides

 

Maybe some of you are wondering why a makeup artist can be important during your wedding day. I will not try to explain it only from the side of professional  makeup artist but also from the side of a woman. And especially the reason why  I love to do bridal make-overs.

First of all I have to mention that it is not just all about a simple makeup application session, it is something more than this. Its is such a honor to be asked to be a part of someone’s very special day.

I love working with women and what is better than making them feel pampered and beautiful on their special day. It is such a beautiful feeling to be able to witness the joy a woman feels on her wedding day. 

 

With the exception of how demanding these hours may be during a wedding preparation. Sometimes I deal with really challenging situations. It has happened to pamper 8 persons, (hair & makeup) with no help for a bachelor party, and I was really feeling like getting on fire!!! But to be honest it was so passionate and even thought I was feeling exhausted, I was also excited and happy, to see them have fun, sing and dance while I was preparing each one of them.

 

 

When I do a bridal makeup I am really full of emotions. Except of the passion that I feel by doing what I love, as a romantic woman that I am, I feel so beautiful to see all the preparations, the friends, the bride-maids, the family who come to give a hug to the bride and give their wishes to her. Sometimes I have to take a break from what I am doing just because the bride has to be blessed from someone. Also others professionals can come to ask and take orders from the bride, she can speak on the telephone often, move a lot, leave the room. I know this can be really demanding sometimes, and that is why a good professional makeup artist must have experience on dealing with such a stressful day, keep calm and work with confidence and understanding. But you know what? This is your special day and I am present there as a witness of this blessed day! I am patient and I know that this is an important part of a wedding preparation.

 

My favourite part of doing someone’s hair and makeup is seeing their reactions when they look in the mirror after I’m done. Ok I will admit that sometimes especially if we haven’t done any trial before, I feel butterflies on my stomach about this first reaction. I am always prepared even to do changes, but hopefully, (God bless those two hands that seems to be talented and my good instincts to understand other women’s character and unique style) most of them they smile with satisfaction when they look at the mirror.

 

 And yes then I feel myself even more blessed and happy. I love being able to make someone feel gorgeous, whether it’s for their wedding day, a photo shoot or a fun event. I’ve gotten tears, shrieks of delight, hugs, bows of worship, and huge smiles to name just a few of the reactions at the end of a session. There is nothing that feels as good as making a woman feel good about herself. The best reaction I have ever had was from a mother of a bride who wasn’t speaking at all during the makeup process. She had her eyes close and she just opened when I finished (ok and a little before while I was doing her makeup but there wasn’t any mirror in front of her).

 

 When she looked herself on the mirror she said, Oh my God and she started to cry. She hugged and thanked me. Her daughter after told me (because the mother wasn’t speaking some of the local languages here in Luxembourg) that she wasn’t used to do makeup on herself and that she was so thrilled with the results. That was also for me maybe one of the best after makeup reactions I ever had.

 

One of my attitudes is that I am specialised in clients who don’t normally wear much makeup and I make sure to learn about their personal styles and comfort zones.Makeup is about looking like the most amazing version of yourself, in person and in every photo. When we go without makeup, our features tend to look harder to distinguish and we may look washed out. On the other hand if we wear our everyday makeup, we may not get the results we are hoping for ( most everyday products and application methods do not translate well on camera) The truth is that the person that you will choose to provide your bridal makeup the day of your wedding will likely be spending several hours with you and probably and your bridal party. So it is important to have a good communication and chemistry with this person, and mostly that you like her or him to being around you this special day. You might even suggest to your attendants that they have makeup done by this person, which means that the results of her work will be the focal point of about 80% of the photos taken that day. So it is important to trust and feel confident about this person.

 

 

Most times when I do bridals I am the one who go first to the bride’s place and the last who leaves. Sometimes I am the only person who is with the bride (there were brides whose families for many reasons weren’t present) I will be there to support them, advice them, make them feel comfortable and at the end help them to dressed up, put their veil or even their shoes. I never leave my bride if I will not check her makeup and hair at the end after she will wear her wedding gown.

I do not know if this is something that all professionals do, but I feel that this is the right think, I feel an important part of this day and except of being a good professional I am also a woman, who feels and have strong, feminine emotions during a wedding event. Because beside all I also come from a country where wedding is a very important part of our life where we celebrate like a big fete and prepare this special event for many months before.  

 

Finally at the end when I leave what is left not only for me but also for them are sweet memories who we keep them into beautiful photos. It is not you will eat, it is not what you will drink on a wedding venue, it is all those beautiful photos that you can show to your children after many years, to remind you those romantic moments of that special day of your life. And this is a good reason to think why to look on your bests that day is really important. Yes many they will speak about your dress, or even your hair, but most people will remember your beautiful smiling face.

For me photo I love seeing the end result of my work. Whether it’s a simple photo shoot or a wedding, it’s so rewarding to see my hard work captured forever in a print.
