Dr Gabriela Mercik cosmetics containing molecular water.

I found Dr Gabriela Mercik on Facebook who is well known for introducing her cutting-edge products and treatments to the world of aesthetic medicine.  Following research into the Nobel Prize-winning science of aquaporin channels, Gabriela has harnessed the powers of a revolutionary new skincare ingredient that will change the way we treat ageing skin using molecular water.  Molecular water is made up of microscopic water molecules smaller than the size of a pore and much smaller than actual water molecules.  These microscopic water molecules are able to penetrate the aquaporin moisture channels found in the skin cell membrane and enter the heart of the cell where they promote cellular metabolism and skin health.  The infusion of molecular water into the skin cell stimulates blood flow to the area.  When you apply the product ie the Hydration Rejuvenation hand cream, you can see it working.  The veins come to the surface of the skin and there is an immediate difference to the texture of the skin which lasts for 72 hours.  This product reduces wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and open pores.  It also improves skin elasticity and skin health.  As well as the hand cream I have also tried the Magic Beauty Face lift Serum with excellent results. 
I have oily skin so Dr Gabriela gave me Moonlight Dust Activator Cleanser and Moonlight Dust Skin Toner.   The cleanser removes makeup and excess oils.  This activator unclogs pores and allows them to breathe, whilst maintaining the skin's PH level and inhibiting the growth of bacteria. The toner which contains molecular water  is applied to start the rehydration process and balance pH levels in the skin before using the Magic beauty Face Lift Serum.  Again, this product inhibits the growth of bacteria and restricts excessive seborrhea and inflammation.  I have had great results using all of these products.  My skin is smoother, clearer, hydrated and my under eye area in particular has improved with the serum.  My hands look more youthful and hydrated too and I found the hand cream good on rough areas such as my elbows and knees.
I have also had a consultation with Dr Gabriela Mercik for some aesthetic treatments which I will be returning for in the summer.  She has recommended PDO threads to sharpen my jaw line and define my upper lip along with a specific type of filler that rejuvenates the skin and sculpts the shape of the face.  The thing I liked most about the consultation was Gabriela's concern and question for why I wanted to change my face.  When I explained that I didn't want to change the way I look, but to look like the younger me, we looked at some photos of me in my late 20's and started to decide the way forward from there.  This proved to me that Dr Gabriela is ethical and concerned for patient well being.

3D Lipo at Utopia in Hornchurch

3D Lipo is such a great summer treatment and I decided to have another go at my mummy tummy at Utopia in Hornchurch owned by Stefania Rossi.


Utopia Beauty & Advanced Skincare has just won the Professional Beauty “Employer of the Year 2016” Award and I can see that her employees are all very happy ladies. Stefania took over Utopia 2 years ago and made quite a few changes. Staff were on zero hour contracts. That is the first change Stefania made. “The commitment was to secure employment contracts for the whole team.” 2 years on, the 8 members of staff at the salon, who all live locally, have a full-time job and are paid the living wage and have a comprehensive commission structure . Stefania has also started taking on apprentices.
“I want to make sure my staff have the best training so they perform the best job. I also want to provide them with progressive routes and I need to understand what makes them tick. But above all, I think this is about passion in the industry. The staff really needed that stability and someone who really believes in them – but they also needed to believe in my vision for the salon, otherwise it wouldn’t have worked. We wanted to get to the next level and provide advanced treatments – this is about looking after the client and the client’s needs. To win this award is quite magical and it feels like a real privilege. ”


Emma was my therapist and we had a lengthy consultation to ensure that I was a suitable candidate for 3D Lipo. The plan for me was to freeze the bulk of my tummy fat using 2 sessions of cryolysis at least 6 months apart and then to return after a few months to have ultrasonic cavitation and radiofrequency skin tightening on the smaller areas.
A protective gel covered large film is placed on the area to be freezed and then the cup is applied to the area. Once the machine is switched on the fat is sucked up into the cup and frozen for an hour. This is painless and not uncomfortable. I was expecting to have some pinching at least, but nothing. Afterwards the area was red and very cold to the touch, but nothing concerning. I was advised to stay away from any heat treatments in the area for as long as the area stayed cold to the touch. 1 month on, my lower tummy has shrunk considerably. I'm looking forward to getting my upper tummy done and then later this year seeing the full result after the cavitation and skin tightening.
This treatments can be used on large deposits of fat which are hard to lose, I chose my tummy as I had 2 C-sections and really hate this part of my body. I am told that the skin tightening will also help the texture and appearance of my stretch marks.


The good thing about Utopia is that they can offer payment plans to make it affordable for clients. Utopia also offers aesthetic treatments via Dr Sheila who currently runs aweekly clinic at Utopia. There is currently a waiting list for 3D Lipo, so if you are looking to make a real difference this summer and have that beach body, I strongly suggest you call and get yourself onto the list!

Chemical Skin Peel at Total Beauty By Lauren Hornchurch

Lauren of Total Beauty by Lauren in Hornchurch invited me for my first skin peel.  As my skin is sensitive and it is my first skin peel, we decided to go for the Medik8 Light Peel.  This contains a blend of mandelic, lactobionic, lactic and salicylic acid.  It is very gentle and painless.


Firstly Lauren cleansed my skin and then wiped with a pre-peel solution.  Then the Acid Peel was applied.  this was left for 2 and a half minutes.  The whole time Lauren checked on how it felt for me by asking questions.  She said that if the pain as a 1-10 got to a 6 then the peel should be neutralised and removed immediately.  This did not happen for me, there was heat and tingling and I'm told redness.  After 2 and a half minutes Lauren used a neutralising spray to bring back the PH level of the skin and then wiped the solution away with soaked pads.  After that cold packs were applied to calm the skin.  Then thick recovery cream and SPF30 was applied.


Afterwards my skin felt tight and clean and looked pink.  I told to leave my skin alone for the rest of the day and then gently cleanse in the morning.  I was given Medik8 Skin Rehydration Serum containing hyaluronic acid and the Recovery Cream to use morning and night.  I was also advised to use Sun Block always - I used SPF50 daily.


This peel is designed to get the skin to peel lightly over a number of days, getting rid of dead skin cells and revealing younger, smoother, brighter skin in it's place.  It can be used for wrinkles, fine lines, acne, oily skin, break outs and open pores.


My skin was tight and dry for a few days and flaked a little, I kept using the products provided as requested and after a week my new skin showed through.  My complexion is glowing and clear just from one of these peels and my pore size has reduced.  I can just imagine the difference if I was to have regular peels!  I've seen the photographic evidence of the results that acne sufferers have experienced from chemical peels combined with dermaroller with Lauren and it is absolutely astounding.

Mesotherapy - Advanced Beauty Solutions by Georgia Low-Louchiey

I've seen so many posts on Facebook about Mesotherapy lately, it's something I've never thought of trying.  To be honest the needle thing put me off as it involves many injections, but when I saw a video come up on Facebook by Georgia Low-louchiey using a Mesogun, it didn't look scary at all.   The client looked very relaxed and it didn't look painful. It's a quicker, safer and more comfortable way of doing it.  Mesotherapy consists of minute injections of vitamin and mineral enriched serum including hyaluronic acid antioxidant properties which is put into the mid section (epidermal layer of the skin).   These are vital nutrients required for fresh and healthy skin.


With age the skin loses it's ability to make as much collagen and that vital collagen depletes.  Collagen is needed for elastin to  keep the skin supple.   When the collagen depletes this gives it a tired appearance and the skin will sag.  The nutrients we are feeding our bodies go to vital organs first and the skin is one of the last places to benefit.  Facial Mesotherapy will benefit the skin by fighting natural sagging and ageing, improving the appearance of wrinkles, leaving the skin rejuvenated and toned.  This treatment can be used on the face, neck and d├ęcolletage to improve skin conditions such as dullness, dryness, acne,
fine lines, wrinkles, sagging, pigmentation, sun damage and rosacea. 


As you can see, I did my research and was keen to try Mesotherapy.  I had been looking at a few therapists, but Giorgia impressed me with her results and her technique.  Georgia works from home, she has a therapy room which is clean and professional.  He business is called Advanced Beauty Solutions and she is based in Harlow not far from Harlow Town Station.  When I met Giorgia she was kind and lovely.  A friendly and calming person.  We had an initial consultation where we looked at my general and skin health and she told me how everything worked giving me a chance to ask questions. 


First of all my skin was thoroughly cleansed and then a degreasing agent was used which helps the chemical peel to absorb at an even rate.  A self neutralising chemical peel was applied to my face and neck to start off skin regeneration and turnover of dead skin cells.  This was not a strong peel, it felt tingly. Then the Mesogun was loaded and set. The chemical peel was neutralised with bicarbonate of soda solution and then Georgia went to work with the Mesogun.  The actual Mesotherapy wasn't painful at all and didn't take too long.  There are sensitive areas which give slight discomfort, but I've had needle treatment in the past via botox and fillers and this is nothing compared to that.  To my surprise at the end Georgia added a seaweed mask.  This calms the skin and ensures that all the ingredients are pushed further into the skin.  This is something I've not seen done when I've studied this on You Tube.  I must say that this is a real treatment and is very relaxing.  The whole time Georgia checked how I was and made me feel very comfortable.


Afterwards my skin was plumper, pinker, softer, more toned, I could really feel the difference.  Sunblock was applied and I was given a PH Formala A.G.E. recovery cream containing a small amount of the acid that is in the peel to keep my skin cell turnover going until my next appointment.  I was advised to carry on with my usual skin routine and to use sunblock daily to protect my skin from the sun.  Also Georgia advises the client to use a collagen supplement to compliment this treatment  as Mesotherapy kicks the skin into action to produce more of it's own collagen which depletes with age.  Collagen supplements will support the new collagen regeneration.


I am going back for two more treatments to get the full effect of Mesotherapy.  Usually 5-8 treatments are advised, but as my skin is healthy for my age I have been advised that 3 are adequate.  Next time the Mesogun will penetrate into the more deeper layers of my skin to really get those fibroblasts working and as my peel would have turned over the skin cells and rid me of dead skin cells the next treatment will be even more effective.  Plus it will be nice to see Georgia again!

Photo Skin Rejuvenation Facial With IPL Laser Machine

Dr Giorgia Ratta Cosmetic Clinic in South Ealing is always updating her treatment list, I decided to travel to her for a Photo Skin Rejuvenation facial using ILP Laser Machine This is a machine facial using light and heat. This improves the texture of the skin, increases collagen production and reduces pigmentation and sun damage.  This is also good for acne and open pores.  The effects of this facial will work for up to 10 days.


My eyes and SPMU eyebrows were protected by cotton pads and goggles.  The machine zaps the skin with light and heat, it tingles and is quite hot, but it's painless.  A gel is used to protect the skin.  It doesn't take long at all and leaves the skin looking from the first facial.  Up to 6 of these facials at regular intervals is recommended for lasting and noticeable results.  During the consultation, my therapist Sahel and I decided that we should treat my neck and declotage as sun damage has taken it's toll in those areas. 


As soon as Sahel had finished my facial and wiped off all the gel and applied Aloe Vera, I could see an immediate difference, especially on my tricky declotage area.  My pores were also visibly smaller. Dr Giorgia generously supplied me with some Heliocare SPF50 protection samples as it is important that a good SPF cream is used after this treatment and I'd forgotten to bring mine.    Also Aloe Vera cream of gel is recommended for 24 hours after the treatment, no perfumed creams and no make up, heat treatments ect.


Just a few days later I can see the difference on my declotage in particular.  It's smoother in appearance.  My skin is smoother, plumper and glowing.


Dr Giorgia is now also offering laser hair removal, tattoo removal, thread vein removal, Ultrasound Cavitation and Radiofrequency Skin Tightening.  This last newly introduced treatment appeals to me for the treatment of my jaw and neck to compliment the Silhouette Soft 6 thread puppet face lift Dr Giorgia expertly applied to my lower face, so I will be returning in the near future.


There are some money saving packages on which can be booked through www.treatwell.co.uk

Botox at Vie Southend as part of Full Eye Rejuvination

The final part of my "Full Eye Rejuvination Package" at Vie Aesthetics was botox 3 areas.  Dr Liakas expertly and quickly injected all areas that needed lifting and relaxing without pain.  The results of this took 4 days to kick in and I had a noticeable brow lift!  The wrinkle across my had was gone as were my fine lines and crows feet around my eyes.  Very pleasing!

Then as a final tweak Dr Laikas decided to give me cheek fillers using Ellanse which is 100% hyaluronic acid and 100% collagen which last for 2 years and stimulates your own production of collagen for that time too.  Now usually I have been sceptical of cheek fillers as you see certain celebrities with puffed up faces in the tabloids, but I trust Dr Liakas and if he thought cheek fillers would improve my appearance, that was good enough for me.  Again he injected quickly and without pain.  (It's a good idea to take Arnica tablets on the run up to and after you have injectables and have Arnica cream in reserve if you bruise easily and don't take any blood thinning drugs).  I could not believe the difference the Ellanse made!  It brought my lower face up and even lifted the corners of my eyes as well as giving me defined cheek bones.  It changed the whole shape of my face to look fresher and younger.  Dr Liakas even used a few drops of the Ellanse to smooth out my nose to mouth lines which was a nice surprise.


I just can't believe the difference in the way I look!  My face has really evolved and I look more like the younger me.  My husband is very pleased, my friends have complimented me and even my children have too.

Tear Trough Filler at Vie Southend

As part of a "Full Eye Rejuvination" package at Vie Asthethics in Southend on Sea, I have had Tear Trough Fillers using one of the best fillers on the market - Perfectha.
The package includes; Tear Trough Fillers, Soft Surgery PlexR Blepharoplasty using a plasma technique and the Botox 3 areas to lift the brows.
The tear trough fillers consist of a series of injections using Perfectha around the lower eyes where they are hollow and dark circles appear.  Firstly numbing cream was applied and then ice packs and arnica cream to prevent bruising as much as possible.  Then the injections, which didn't hurt at all and didn't take long.  DrLiakas is an expert injector.
I was astonished at the immediate results!  My eyes were lifted at the corners, no more hollows and my nose to mouth lines were lifted!  I was amazed at what a different look it gave me!  Such an easy, quick and painless treatment.  To help with the healing I used a neck pillow for a few days to prevent rolling over at night and I took arnica to help with the slight swelling and bruising.  I used a high SPF, an SPF oxidising foundation and sunglasses during the day for protection against the sun.
The next step is 3 areas botox to lift the brow and give a fresh look whilst ironing out my wrinkles around my eyes!  This will totally compliment the Silhouette Soft thread lift I had in my lower face recently and make me look a whole lot younger and fresher.
The "Full Eye Rejuvination" package will be available from Vie very soon, but for now they have packages involving the Silhouette Soft "Puppet Face Lift" with botox and fillers.

Soft Surgery Blepharoplasty at Vie Southend



I have been very down about my eyes for years.  I noticed that after 25 my skin above my upper eyelids has been drooping and over the years the droopy skin has turned into upper eye bags.  The problem has become so bad that I have been raising my eyelids quite a lot without realizing it, causing a line across my forehead.


In the past I have tried botox to correct the problem, it has helped but their is only so much that can be done with botox and the skin still remains when the botox wears off.  I recently saw an option for "Soft Surgery Blepharoplasty" at Vie Aesthethics at Southend-On-Sea.  This clinic is run by husband and wife team Vicky and Dr Ionnas Liakas.  Dr Liakas is an experienced and certified specialist doctor. 


Vie is a really nice chic little clinic which is very easy to get to.  There are many different procedures to choose from.  One of their most popular specialities is Silhouette Soft "puppet face lift" that I recently had at a clinic in South Ealing.  In fact there were a few clients getting this done on the day I was there.


During my consultation for PlexR®,  I was warned of around 7 days down time and the fact that this procedure is not always a completely painless one depending on the person's pain threshold.  I decided that the price of this was worth paying to regain my confidence about my eyes and to make the top half of my face match the bottom half.  I was told about what was involved.  "PlexR®, is a device that forms plasma to sublimate the excess skin. It delivers its energy only on the superficial skin cells, without affecting deeper tissues, thus enables the perfect plasticity of the eyelid movement immediately after the treatment. The result is immediate reduction of the excess skin on the upper or lower eyelid, as well as the shrinking of the excess skin in the external region around the eye. The benefits are also the improvement of the expression lines at the corner of the eye and the cheekbone (“crow’s feet”)."  Basically this means a conductor pen is used which is similar to lightening.  It doesn't touch the skin, but is aimed at the skin and is extremely accurate.  It needs a skilled hand.   The offending loose skin is then evaporated.  What is left behind are scabs which protect the new skin whilst it's forming.  During that time an oxidising high SPF protection mineral foundation is recommended and of course sunglasses.  Depending on how much loose skin is present, the client. may need between 1 and 3 treatments, 4 to 6 weeks apart. 


Numbing cream is applied, but I was very nervous so Dr Liakas gave me a local anesthetic to make me as comfortable as he possibly could.  The one thing I did like about this was I didn't have to wear lead lenses under my eyelids as I am very squeamish about my eyes.  It took around 30 minutes, not too long and once it was finished I could see an immediate effect before the swelling kicked in.   I had eyelids again, a bothersome skin tag was gone and a new arch on each eyebrow, this made me very happy.  The swelling was apparent for a few days, my eyes felt very tight, but I kept telling myself that the end result was worth it and I couldn't wait until the scabs fell off revealing the new tighter "baby" skin.  I used the make up I was supplied religiously and micellar water only to take it off without rubbing.  No rubbing or picking allowed as if the scabs are removed before they fall off naturally it can cause pigmentation.  I also used a neck pillow at night to sleep for a week to ensure I didn't disturb my eyes.


The scabs came off gradually and I began to see the result slowly, which made me feel happy that I had chosen this treatment.  When all of the scabs were gone, I just couldn't believe my reflection.  I looked like the old me again, the one when I was younger.  I still had a lot of looking after to do as the skin was brand new, so I religiously used a high SPF, the make up and sunglasses for protection.  Now when I apply my make up, I can be more experimental as it really shows now that I have eyelids again.  I can now wear lashes without them looking odd too.  My husband wasn't sure about this when he saw me looking swollen and scabby, but now all has healed he absolutely loves it and supported me through it too.  My friends have all commented on how great I look now.  I can also see clearer as having none of the droopy skin there lets in more light.  But most importantly, this has given me back my confidence about my eyes without having to have a surgeon cut at them and all of the risks involved in surgery as well as the recovery.


This treatment has many uses, removal of skin tags, removal of upper and lower eye bags, tattoo removal, scar removal and removal of lines, wrinkles and crows feet.  The downtime for this procedure is still much less than conventional surgery. (In surgery with cutting, there is swelling and significant bruising for up to 3 weeks.  As I mentioned, I had swelling but no bruising after PlexR).  Also in surgery people have a surgical scar on the eye lid.  PlexR does not leave any scars.  In fact Dr Liakas has had clients who came for PlexR to correct conventional blepharoplasty surgery and rid the scars. One patient had the arch of the upper eyelid perfected and to the patient's delight the scar also disappeared.  Even after 3 sessions of PlexR, (which is rarely required), the costs are still substantially less with PlexR than conventional surgery, so this option is definitely worth looking at if you are considering an eyelift or lower eye bag removal for a fresher look and better vision.


I have been invited back for tear trough fillers using Perfectha and botox to complete the look.  PlexR combined with botox and fillers is a package is called "Full Eye Rejuvination" and will be available at Vie Asthetics very soon.

Collagen Shots by Rejuvenated

After I wrote about Skinade collagen supplement, a representative from Rejuvenated contacted me about their Collagen Shots and asked me to test and review.  Rejuvenated are a small British brand which have worked on the collagen principle for 23 years.  I am always keen to test new products and to support a small British business is very important to me.


This Collagen supplement is different in the way that it contains Acia Berry to aid fat loss and it contains zero sugar, so this will help with weight loss as well as improve skin, hair, nails and bones.  (Sugar is particularly bad for the skin).  This product is also Gluten free and free from starch, fat, preservatives and artificial colours.  The only way you would be allergic to this product is if you are allergic to fish as the collagen is collected from natural marine substances.


The ingredients are; Marine Collagen 10,000mg, Vitamin C, Acia Berry, Hyaluronic Acid, Stevia, Vitamins B3 B5 B6, Zinc, Copper.  All the natural nutrients required for a healthy body and healthy skin.  No nasties.  Vitamin C contributes to the normal formation of collagen for normal function of skin.  Vitamin B3 and Zinc help maintain normal skin.  Zinc and Copper together contribute to normal DNA synthethsis.  Hyaluronic Acid is needed by the body to bind water and give the skin moisture and plumpness, this depletes naturally with age as does natural production of Collagen.


This supplement comes in powder form in a 330g pouch with a scoop for precise measuring and contains 30 servings.  The scoop of powder needs to be whisked with water with a fork and drank before bed.  It tastes good and natural, you can taste that it doesn't contain sugar.  There is no nasty after taste.  The ingredients go to work on an empty stomach to be absorbed into the body's system and work on the skin in particular. 


After full use of this product I noticed a difference, not only to my skin but to my body shape!  I was not eating differently or doing anything differently, so I believe that this product helped me to lose fat.  I do not weigh myself, I just go by my dress size as sometimes body muscle can with more than body fat and the scales can be deceiving.  How I really noticed a difference was one night after a hectic day I fell into bed in my underwear.  When I woke up in the morning and got out of bed, I got a glimpse of myself in the mirror in my undies and was surprised to see that my shape had noticeably changed!  My tummy was much smaller and everything else looked like inches had come off.  Very pleasing!  Also as I have a lot of aesthetic treatments, this product has contributed drastically to my healing process and left my skin firm, pink, soft, clear and plump.  My hair and nails seem to have grown quicker than usual too.


Rejuvenated have a full range of anti ageing  and well being supplements.  An interesting one which would compliment collagen shots is H3O Hydration Night Repair which is a tablet to take at night.  It provides minerals and ions key in hydration for skin and health.  This will rehydrate you overnight.  There is also a H30 Hydration Drink for daytime. The Well Being range is designed to specifically support fitness and weight loss.


You can learn about and purchase Rejuvenated supplements at www.rejuvenated.co.uk   Retail price of Collagen Shots is £39.95 making it affordable for customers to purchase regularly.

Hair At The Vanilla Room In Hornchurch - Olaplex

The Vanilla Room in Hornchurch have a new hair treatment call Olaplex.  It conditions right to the very core of the hair shaft and strengthens the hair from the inside out.  I decided to get down there and check it out as I needed a whole new hair makeover.


My stylist Emmy, (Who has 26 years experience), and I had a consultation where we decided on a funky choppy bob and to colour my hair incorporating the Olaplex conditioning treatment.  As I have a much younger looking face now thanks to Vie Aesthetics and Dr Giorgia Ratta, I wanted something funky.  We decided on a warm chestnut brown with bright red choppy streaks going through it.  (I've been red before and really liked it).


Olaplex 1 was used in my colours, which were left on for 20 minutes.  Then Olaplex 2 was applied for a further 20 minutes.  After that my hair was washed with Vitamino Colour Shampoo and Keratise Fuso Dose treatment with radiance booster was applied to keep my colour for longer.  Once that was rinsed out, Emmy went to work with her magic scissors and expertly blow dried my hair using Volumifique heat protection spray.


I was happy with my new look and the softness and glossiness of my hair.  This treatment will last me for a few weeks and has helped to repair the damage caused by over colouring my hair as I change it often.  I would especially recommend Olaplex if your colouring your hair and also as a stand alone treatment, especially for highlighted and bleached hair as it rebuilds your hair from the inside out, repairing damage.   You can even buy a bottle to use at home.  Olaplex if used with your colour is £20, if used as a stand alone treatment it's £35 and to buy for home use it's £36.  Keratise Fuso Dose is £17.50.  Cut and style is from £36.  Consultations and fringe trims are complimentary.  The Vanilla Rooms also offer hair extensions and beauty treatments including; facials, machine facials, nails, eyelashes, brow treatments, make up, body treatments, massage and sunless tanning.  All prices and services are on the website.


I noticed that when I next washed my hair, very little colour came out due to the Olaplex and the Fuso Dose Treatment and when dried my hair felt very soft to the touch and was nice and shiny, proof that this treatment really does work!


The Vanilla Room is a really creative salon, and it's Facebook page is packed with lots of hair style inspiration and advice. Certainly worth a 'Like' if you're thinking of a new look this season.  If you're quick, you can still enjoy the SPRING HAIR SALE. This gives new clients 25% off colour, cut & style services, or 50% off cut & style services until the end of April. For more info on the sale visit www.thevanillaroom.co.uk
