Posts in Dysport

Today marks the start of another one of my genius nifty article ideas. As you all know I love learning about beauty and a big reason for starting this blog was to share with you what I learn. One of my favourite topics is cosmetic enhancement, and the one place that is a constant source of information for me is the Cosmetic Physicians Society of Australasia (CPSA).

I really didn’t know what topic I wanted to start with for this new article series but after the recent publicity around Botox, and it’s increasing popularity, I thought it would be wise to start way back at the beginning. Research should be a big part of everyones process before getting any sort of cosmetic enhancement but the more I speak to those who have had the Botox procedure, I find very few looked into it. I find this concerning so I asked Dr Susan Austin, of the Cosmetic Physicians Society of Australasia (CPSA) to share her top 5 facts you need to know before considering BOTOX injections. This article series will usually be much shorter with just some basic points, but because this topic is extremely important, I have wanted to provide you with the essential information.

It’s also important to be mindful that not everything you read online or elsewhere might be accurate so consider who has written it, who is quoted, any references as well as where and when it’s been published. Remember, don’t take everything you read on the internet as gospel and always seek expert advice from a doctor before making a decision about a procedure.

Reading credible blogs such as this one (obviously!) is a great place to start your research and visiting websites of medical organisations such as the Cosmetics Physicians Society of Australasia (CPSA) can also help you get up-to-speed on the ever evolving cosmetic medical industry.

WAIT, before you inject me, what is that stuff ….

What is it and how is it used?

In-Home Massage Soothe App Review

Have you had a professional massage in your own home? It was a concept I thought was reserved for rich housewives and high-flying executives. To my surprise, however, massage is no longer a luxury as it’s becoming an essential part of self-care. Hunching over computers and mobile devices, less daily movement and exercise …. our bodies are suffering. Massage is one of the easiest ways to reduce pain and stress from mounting up in our body, but with busier lives comes less time for self care.

I’ve always dreamt of having a massage therapist come to me, and I’ve looked into it many times over the last few years. I tried to find a reliable and certified massage therapist who offered in-home massage and didn’t charge a crazy price but that always seemed to be just out of reach. Then, I heard that Soothe had launched in Australia. An app that turns massage into an on-demand service. Will my Soothe app review reveal an answer to my prayers? Read on to find out!
