Earlier this week I showed you why buying fillers over the internet is a big no-no. Missed it? Oh boy, jump over here right now!

For a long time I have wanted to cover off everything one could know about fillers, but it is a huge category. Where do I start? Well, after doing the post on Wednesday I thought I should start by asking an expert some basic questions. Seeing as though the Cosmetic Physicians Society of Australasia (CPSA) are the ones who care so much about keeping the industry safe, they would probably be my best bet.

Dr Susan Austin has a long list of credentials in dermatology and runs her own successful skin clinic in Sydney. She also happens to be the Public Relations Manager for the Cosmetic Physicians Society of Australasia (CPSA). So, who better to give us the low down on basic Filler knowledge?

These were the questions I thought were super entry level to learning about fillers, but I would love to hear from all of you what exactly concerns you about Fillers. What do you want to know? What are your questions? There will be many more posts on Fillers, I guarantee that, so why not get the answers you want.

Considering fillers? What should you expect during your initial consultation?

Not all treatments are suitable for every patient and the best results are achieved through a personalised treatment plan. The initial consultation with an appropriately trained cosmetic physician is critically important when considering cosmetic medicine. During an initial consultation a cosmetic physician should undertake a full medical history, discuss any concerns you may have and clearly explain your treatment options and to ensure the final result is what you’re aiming for. It’s also vital that you have a realistic expectation of what can be achieved.

Most non-surgical clinics will offer programs for remediation and then maintenance, which usually run for a period of up 12 months. It is also important to remember to look holistically at the program as it should ideally address three key issues: skin quality, wrinkles and volume.

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!
