Rid Yourself of Wrinkles with the Dermapen

At this time of the year, we all want to look our best. Be it for a special wedding, or an exotic summer holiday, now is the time when we want to turn heads for all the right reasons!

Many people of all ages suffer from scarring due to acne or other trauma, or simply want to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. We’re happy to report that surgery is not the only way to achieve the results you’ve been dreaming of! In fact, we’ve got something that produces the same results as – if not better than – laser treatment.

The Dermapen is a revolutionary microneedling pen, and is the latest number one choice amongst medical professionals, and patients alike. At Balance, we reccommend the Dermapen treatment, to rejuvenate skin for an important occasion or event, or simply to improve the appearance of facial skin in general.

These virtually pain-free treatments take only 60 minutes each, so it’s easy to book one for after work, or a Saturday morning! We advise 4 – 6 treatments, in order to see the best possible results, so if you want to look your best for that summer wedding, now is the time to get started!

But what is the Dermapen, and how does it work?
The Dermapen is a small, electronic device, which incorporates a needle tip consisting of 12 microscopic needles. During the treatment, these needles create tiny punctures in the skin of the target area, causing an immune response, which stimulates the production of new collagen. The collagen, in turn, is what reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving the skin a rejuvenated look. In addition, the needles carry small amounts of nutrients into the skin, at the same time, increasing the benefits. As the needles oscilate so raapidly, they are able to move across the surface of the skin smoothly, meaning that there is not visible outward tearing. The treatment is just as effective as the use of lasers, but comes without the risk of unwanted skin damage.

And what are the benefits?

• Reduction of superficial skin wrinkles, especially around the eyes

• Reduction of scarring, particularly acne scars

• Smoothing of rough textured skin

• Open pore minimization

• Reduction of superficial lines

Top Summer Skincare Tips

You’ve booked that dream holiday, and you’re all ready to spend a week soaking up the sun’s glorious rays, but we know that taking care of your skin can be something that’s easily put on the backburner when you go on holiday. We’ve put together some easy tips so that your skin will stay healthy and beautiful, even in the hottest weather.

1) Start with your lips. This delicate skin can sunburn easily, so use a good lipbalm with SPF, to keep your pout protected.

2) Don’t forget your scalp. Use a sunscreen spray along your path and your hairline, to prevent painful sunburn.

3) Apply sunscreen before you get dressed. Believe it or not, you can burn through your bikini, so apply oil- and fragrance-free sunscreen to your entire body before you cover up with clothes.

4) Use mineral makeup. Many powders come with a built-in SPF, which protects your face if you do feel you need to wear makeup. Keep your makeup light and oil-free, to prevent further damage to the skin.

5) Wear a hat. This may seem basic, but a hat can do wonders for protecting your skin against the harmful rays of the sun. Choose one with a wide brim, for maximum coverage.

3) Take a cool shower and use a scrub to remove dead skin. Exfoliating can help remvoe dry or dead skin (just don’t do it immediately after a bad sunburn!), while a cool shower helps to lower your body’s temperature during uncomfortably hot weather.

6) Eat your Antioxidants! Munch on snacks that are high in antioxidants, in order to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and sun damage. Berries, tea, dark chocolate, and even red wine, are good sources, so treat yourself this summer! Research also says that increasing your intake of vitamins C and E helps reduce the effects of sun on the skin, while drinking enough water is always a must.

7) Use an aloe vera gel. Soothe sunburned skin with a cooling, natural gel, or lather up with yoghurt after a day in the sun, and then shower it off.

How to Dress for Your Body Shape

Summer is in full swing, so there’s no time like the present to get started on the body you’ve been dreaming of. Our top tip for this season is to try out the revolutionary Venus Legacy treatment – and you’re in lucky, because Balance is now one of only two locations in Ireland that can perform this procedure! It’s non-invasive, there’s no downtime, and each session is quick, easy, and pain-free. This body-shaping solution helps to tighten sagging skin on the face or body; reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; smooth cellulite; contour your curves; and improve circulation.

Of course, once you’ve got your body looking gorgeous, you’ll need some ideas on how to dress to impress, right? Fashion Boss Lorna Duffy shared some clever tips with us at our brilliant Balance Motivates event last week. Women come in all shapes and sizes, and they key is to use fashion to accentuate your best features.

Hourglass Shape:

You’re curvy with a tiny waist, so embrace those curves! Play up your petite waist with a belted jumper, or go bold and try Kim Kardashian’s crop top and pencil skirt uniform. V-neck wrap dresses are ultra-flattering, while wide-leg trousers will make you appear taller.

Apple Shape:

You have a slim lower body with some weight around the middle, so highlight your shoulders and legs. Swing coats are incredibly flattering for your body shape, and the high-waisted circle skirt accentuates your waist. A shift dress that shows off your legs is a great choice, and low-waist, straight-leg pants avoid a stomach bulge.

Banana Shape:

Your hips and waist are the same size, so your goal is to highlight the thinnest part of your waist, in order to make your hips and bust appear larger. A slightly cropped jacket that cinches at the waist, or a ruffled shirt are flattering, and make your top half look larger. A side-cut out dress can make your appear curvier, while tapered trousers create the illusion of larger hips.

Pear Shape:

Your hips are your widest part, meaning you want to balance your figure by accentuating your top half. A structured jacket with detailing or prints can direct attention to your top half, and an off-the-shoulder dress takes the attention away from your lower body. A-line skirts also draws the eye towards to the smallest part of your waist, and boot-cut trousers balance with your hips to make them seem perfectly proportioned.

Brand New At Balance – Venus Legacy!

As from 1st July 2017, Balance will become only the second location in the whole of Ireland to offer the extremely specialised Venus Legacy treatment.

This highly advanced, non-invasive treatment provides a solution for important aesthetic needs, including body contouring, cellulite reduction, wrinkle reduction, and skin tightening. Comfortable and safe for all skin types, Venus Legacy treatment requires no downtime, allowing you to return straight back to your daily schedule as soon as the treatment is over.

Venus Legacy works by using heat to naturally boost collagen production in your body, which in turn leads to the break down of fat cells, tightens sagging skin, smooths out cellulite, and leaves the body looking and feeling toned. Most people opt for 6-8 treatments per area, in order to ensure maximum results.

The Venus Legacy technology works by combining Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields, in order to produce a uniform heat under the skin. This causes a thermal reaction, which stimulates the body’s natural healing response, to increase production of collagen, as well as elastin fibres. At the same time, advanced VariPulse technology gently pulls the skin upwards, by means of suction power, and this allows for the radio frequencies to travel deeper into the skin.

The Brazilian Bum Lift is Here

From VenusConcepts – creators of the incredible Venus Freeze treatment – comes the Brazilian Bum Lift. If you dream of having a firm, toned bum that will turn heads on the beach this summer, this is just the thing you’ve been waiting for.

This non-invasive lift is ideal for bikini season. These quick and easy treatments are only twenty minutes in length (10 minutes for each side), and produce results that lift the bum, while also smoothing any lumps and bumps in the process.

Here’s how it works:
Sophisticated Octi-polar techynology is used, wherein radio frequencies are concentrated and focused on the crease of the bum, the upper thigh, and the outer bum cheek. The temperature is kep around 40 – 42 degrees, which – when combined with lifting and swooping movements – results in firming and lifting of the bum itself. In addition, increased production of collagen, and enhanced blood supply to the area result, which in turn reduces the appearance of stretch marks.

Parameters for buttocks treatment:

• Area: Buttocks

• Time: 20 minute treatment

• OctiPolar Applicator

• 10 mins per cheek

• Range 50-90%; Standard 80%

• Reduce temperature 5% at a time until patient comfort baseline is achieved

• Area size: 8.5×11 inches. (21×29 cm)

Say Goodbye To Saggy Skin

It’s June, and there’s no denying it – summer is here! The season of beach holidays, lounging by the pool, summer weddings. And what do they all have in common? These are occasions when you want to look and feel your very best! It may start out with the perfect outfit, but we’ll let you in on a special secret that revolutionise the way you look and feel this season.

The Venus Freeze treatment is brand new at Balance, and there’s no better time to try it out! Venus Freeze is a non-invasive, anti-aging treatment, that is proven to firm up sagging skin, and diminish the appearance of wrinkles.

As you age, your body produces less collagen. Collagen is the main structural protein found in the skin, and this is what gives your skin strength and elasticity. This means that a lack of collagen leads to lax skin, crow’s feet, laugh lines, and other signs of aging. Venus Freeze works to diminish these effects, by boosting collagen production in your body, leading to a youthful, refreshed appearance.

Venus Freeze uses patented (MP)2 technology, which combines Multi-Polar Radio Frequency, and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields, to produce a uniform heat under the surface of the skin. This causes a thermal reaction, which in turn leads to more collagen being produced. This restorative process results in firmer, smoother, more youthful looking skin.

Treatments are virtually painless, and very relaxing – with some even comparing the experience to a hot stone massage! The radio frequency technology which is used, is safe and effective for all skin types, and works for both men and women. Sessions last around 30 minutes, and you’ll begin to see results after just one treatment, with permanent effects after only two! With these short sessions, which require no downtime afterwards, you can easily fit your treatments into your busy lifestyle – pop into Balance over your lunchbreak, and step back into the office feeling like a different person!

The best part about Venus Freeze, is that the treatments are not just limited to the face! Do you want to feel more confident when you step out in your bikini this summer? The body contouring and skin tightening effects of Venus Freeze are the ideal thing to firm up your stomach for the beach! And with the bells chiming to ring in wedding season, you’ll have no problem showing off your arms in a fun, sleeveless dress, after just a few treatments on your arms. Sagging skin is a thing of the past!
