My Botique: Wish List
When I was in lockdown I daydreamed about all the things I was going to do, see, and have once the restrictions were eased, and now that beauty clinics across NSW are finally able to operate, I can put my wish list into action. My first wish is to rejuvenate my skin and facial appearance. I don’t know about you, but my skin had a full-on meltdown in isolation. After doing some research I found out that I had a case of Isolation Skin. Yep, it’s a thing and it’s a pain in the behind. Going into isolation, I tried to look at the positives it could present, one of them being that my skin would be lovely and clear and glowing because I wouldn’t be wearing any make-up and I’d have more dedicated time to spend on my daily skincare regime. Not so.
Amy Clark from Mamma Mia explains Iso Skin the best. She says-
“ Basically, isolation skin is skin that’s changing as a result of our changing lifestyles and emotional wellbeing amid COVID-19. Just as we’re making sense of how coronavirus is impacting our livelihoods, daily routines, work, finances, relationships, and physical and psychological health, our skin is kind of confused too. For some,isolation skin looks like angry hormonal acne or pimples in places you don’t normally get pimples. Others will find they keep breaking out in a rash, or their rosacea, redness or sensitivity is flaring up big time”.
So that’s where I’m at. Feeling gross with Iso Skin and busting to see the professionals at My Botique. I usually visit their Warringah Westfield clinic, but they have just opened up a new Hornsby location and I can’t be happier- a perfect complexion is now just a hop, skip and a jump away from home.
My wish list is long, but the exciting news is it is completely achievable with the help of the talented team at My Botique. I feel my sanity slowly returning already just knowing I have an upcoming appointment with the medical professionals at My Botique. So what’s first on my wish list? Check it out below
- Concern – My face seems deflated
I know it’s just the natural ageing process that everything starts to head south, but I particularly noticed an increase in jowl droopage lately. I’m beginning to see my Mother every time I look in the mirror. That’s not a completely bad thing, my mother is a beautiful woman, but none the less, I don’t want to lose my own identity. So the first port of call when reintroducing volume to my face is cheek filler. Not only will this create a natural-looking contour to the overall structure of my face, but it will also add hydration and‘fullness to my cheek area, as well as lift and tighten my jowls.
Along with cheek filler, chin filler and jaw filler are also on my wish list to assist in combating my jiggly jowls. By combining treatment to these three areas, not only does it tighten the jowl area, but it also helps to slim the neck and create a beautiful profile.
I’m considering temple filler to replace lost volume. Temple filler eliminates the ‘skull-like’ shape of your face by filling in the negative space where your temples are. You will be absolutely blown away by how many years this will take off your appearance! Did you know that the temples are one of the first areas women lose volume?
- Concern – My angry face has returned
I look like the human version of Grumpy Cat. The lines around my mouth, aka smile lines (more like frown lines), have deepened and made me look as if I’m constantly scowling, and my frown lines could have their own postcode!
The solution? Naso-labial filler. Only a little bit of filler is needed to treat smile lines, meaning you could use the rest of your 1ml of filler elsewhere like your chin or cheeks. Naso-labial filler helps to minimize the lines around the side of your mouth drastically! It’s like a magic eraser has been used to wipe off years of wrinkles brought on by pursing your lips for those daggy photo’s that, if you’re anything like me, plagued your FB feed for the past 10 years.
Now let’s talk about that furrowed brow. The best treatment to smooth out those lines is anti-wrinkle injections. Anti-wrinkle injections consist of several small superficial injections that smooth out fine lines. You can have as much or as little anti-wrinkle injections as you like. Have a natural look, or choose to be completely frozen. I choose the latter so my family can’t tell how exasperated they make me sometimes! Thankgod schools have opened again, am I right?
Besides treating frown lines, anti-wrinkle injections are also fantastic at minimizing forehead lines and crows feet. It’s also ideal for treating the masseters which stop teeth grinding and subsequent headaches/migraines. Personally, I like to use anti-wrinkle injections for a cheeky brow lift and lip-flip too.
- Concern – I feel lethargic after months of staying indoors and filling in my immense amount of spare time by eating everything in sight
The best way My Botique can help revive inner health and give you back your bounce is via their Vitamin C and Glutathione infusions administered intravenously. My Botique also offers B12 shots. Not only do these treatments offer benefits such as immune health, energy and overall revitalisation, they can also assist in glowing skin, hair and nail health.
Looking after your immunity right now has never been more important!
- Concern – My skin just looks grey, lifeless and dry
Zombie alert! Anyone else’s skin lost their glow? This one is a simple fix with a Beauty Booster treatment at My Botique. Welcome to a world of hydration! The V2 Beauty Booster consists of tiny little injections that pump hyaluronic acid beneath the skin targeting dehydrated skin, fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment is also designed to prevent premature ageing and boost the radiance of your face while improving skin elasticity and texture.
Of course, there are a bunch more treatments on offer at My Botique to treat a huge range of concerns, but the above 4 are personally my most worrisome. I might even mix and match some treatments from each concern. I’m not sure yet, but what I do know is that I never want My Botique to close EVER AGAIN!
