• Pro-age Skin Care | Door of Youth Turn back the clock on your décolletage

    The skin on your neck and chest (décolletage) is one of the first areas to show signs of ageing. Ekk!

    A Woman cleansers, tones and nourishes their face, but few do the neck and chest area. If you have neglected this area, it will start to show signs of ageing.

    The good news is it is not too late to start nourishing this area and there is serums that target hyperpigmentation (dark spots) and wrinkles, to regain a more youthful looking décolletage!

    The skin on the décolletage is different to the skin on your face. This area has no hair follicles, a few oil glands and much thinner.

    The collagen in our skin starts to break down, this leads to fine lines, wrinkles and loss of elasticity, resulting in sagging skin. The skin thins, making it more fragile and slower to heal. We also see the signs of photoageing, brown spots, pigmentation and red/broken capillaries.

    What to do?

    AM: Cleanser from décolletage up, neck and face (the boobies too and rinse with cold water to perk them up).

    Then apply Vitamin C Serum then your day cream & sunscreen on the décolletage, as we don’t apply foundation all over this area. I recommend Modere Sunscreen all over the face/ neck/ décolletage area. Here is link to Modere spend over $50 and save $10.

    PM: Cleanse skin, then apply Vitamin C serum, Vitamin AB night serum, serums can be layered onto the skin, if skin is on the oily side, stop there. Dry or mature skin add a night oil or cream. I am a believer in oils rich in jojoba oil at night.

    Avoid using harsh, active products on the décolletage area, use moisturiser rich in collagen, antioxidants such as vitamin E, C or B3 to protect against free radicals from sun and pollution.

    If your skin has severe damage, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) & or Skin Needling can repair and restore the skin to a more even tone.

    It only take a few extra minutes each day to Stay Youthful. Lean towards natural organic skincare so you are feeding the skin!

    The benefits of micro needling at home

    Although at-home micro needling won’t nab you quite the same results  as in salon professional treatment (the needles are both shorter and duller), it can still offer benefits. “At-home rollers don’t pierce your skin as deeply as the medical-grade devices, but they can be used to enhance the penetration of products—be it hydrating, brightening, or rejuvenating active, as it creates these open channels.”

    Home mirco needling can be done up to 3 times a week, doing home needling then applying serums will penetrate 50% deeper.

  • Micro-needling door of youth skin care range & skin clinic Is your skin flaky and fine lines look deeper?

    Time for some 1 to 1 skin pampering? Skin looking dull? Book a Microdermabrasion with our Skin Specialist! 

    Microdermabrasion was introduced into the beauty services 1990’s. 

    From the day we are born to the day we die the top layer of our skin dies every 24 days, unlike a snake that sheds is out layer of skin, we get a build-up of dead skin cells. This over the years gives us a dull & lifeless looking skin. Fine lines appear, pigmentation darkens, pores more open, scar tissues looks deeper, skin looks dull. We exfoliate or scrub the skin, these product just skim the surface.

    The results an increase in the dermal layer, new collagen formation, renewed plumpness of the skin resulting in more youthful appearance.

    Positive effects of microdermabrasion fines lines will diminish, acne or scar tissue soften, the epidermis will have a youthful glow & the dermal layer is stimulated which slows the aging.

    Improvement can be seen after 1 microdermabrasion, a course of 3 is recommend over 3 weeks and then maintenance is 1 every 6 weeks

    The 3 layers of the skin

    Epidermis – dermis – subcutaneous layer.

    Resurfacing treatments that create trauma to the skin have been replaced with the safe, rejuvenating, non – invasive approach of microdermabrasion & skin needling.

    Results from Peel and Microdermabrasion

    Preserving youth – microdermabrasion has the distinction of bringing new approach to skin care. Its ability to gently yet effectively refine & smooth the skin surface while stimulating the elastin & collagen in the dermal layer in the deeper layers of the skin

    One main key to its success is the micro massage action of the treatment. While the focus is on the epidermis, the suction used to prepare the skin and remove the crystals stimulates blood flow with its essential nutrients & oxygen to nourish the skin & fortify the cells.  The flushing movement generated below the surface by the lymph flow provides cleansing & balancing benefits.

    All skin types will benefit from microdermabrasion, from 14 yrs. old with acne to women in her 70’s. Instant results are seen after one treatment; as we have released the dead skin cells the serums & treatments applied with have deeper penetration giving greater benefits.

    Doing a facial without preparing the skin with a micro, the dead skin cells are still there, serums & treatments will only sit on top of the dead skin cells not giving result that women want

  • Perfume is it marking your skin Perfume is it marking your skin?

    Watch Video how perfume causes pigmentation

    How fragrance can cause pigmentation and age spots.

    You could be prematurely ageing your skin just by spritzing on your favourite fragrance – even if you’re conscientious when it comes to your Pro-age skincare routine.

    Why your signature scent could be causing pigmentation and age spots, especially on your neck, and to discover how to avoid the risks perfume can pose to your skin.

    HOW CAN PERFUME NEGATIVELY AFFECT YOUR SKIN?

    “Sprayed directly onto skin, perfume is so aggressive that it undermines skin’s ability to protect itself against UV damage. That means that perfume-covered skin becomes more vulnerable to sun damage and ageing pigmentation.”

    IS YOUR NECK PARTICULARLY VULNERABLE?

    “Unfortunately, the angle of the delicate décolleté area is perfectly placed to receive the full onslaught of the sun’s damaging UV rays, and the skin on your neck is closer to the bone and thinner too. This means the rays penetrate quickly and the damage is potent. It’s why you often see women with speckled pigmentation patches on their necks and chest.”

    HOW CAN I PROTECT MY SKIN?

    “Best to use your facial sunscreen all the way down the neck and décolleté and use be a broad-spectrum sun protection, as we need SPF to protect us against UVB (burning) and UVA (ageing).

    I’VE ALREADY GOT PIGMENTATION. WHAT CAN I DO?

    “You can give your skin some vital ingredients that will really help it cope, even if it is already showing signs of ageing.

    Start with

    ·        Botanical Exfoliator weekly

    ·        Vitamin C Serum in the AM

    ·        Vitamin AB Night Serum in the PM

    ·        See your local Beauty Specialist about IPL Skin Rejuvenation for fading pigmentation

  • Teens Natural skincare range Australian Made Personal Grooming is an investment.

    I have the cutest dog Mr Benji he is now 17 months old and has been in my life since he was 8 weeks old. Being a Bichon Frise / Poodle x he visits the dog groomers every 6 weeks. He gets a shampoo/conditioning treatment, hair trim, nails cut, ears cleaned, blow dried. Pampered pooch!! An investment of $65 so his hair is neat, his skin won’t be itchy, nails overgrown and no ear mites.

    Mr Benji 8 weeks old.

    When I pick Mr Benji after his 3 hours at the dog groomers, I rebook his next visit.

    Mr Benji now.

    So this got me thinking “WOW does Woman rebook there grooming appointments before they walk out the door from her beauty visit?

    Also do we truly know how much we invest into staying youthful and beautiful? I won’t go there as I would be on a fabulous holiday each year J with the investment into my skin, skincare and nails every 4 weeks.

    Does a Woman maintain her grooming for herself or for her man? This is an interesting subject. I believe it be for ourselves first then to look amazing for our man.

    In 2017 when I launched Door of Youth skincare, my vision was to see the product entering many doors of Australia. Here in 2019 we have many Woman that have been using Door of Youth Skincare for over 10 years.

    I want every Woman to maintain a youthful looking skin and this starts with “home care” using a skincare range, having a morning & night routine. The night routine is SO important to cleanse the skin and feed it with Vitamin Rich Serum, so while sleeping it is rejuvenating.

    Vitamin Serums

    A quick reminder, have you cleaned out your skincare draw or shelf. If you have had your skin care product for over 2 year’s time to bin it.

    I hope you are investing in your skin, have you entered Door of Youth? Maybe it is time!!

  • Eye Lift | Pro-age Skin Care Collections | Door of Youth | High Quality Skincare I had an Eye Lift

    As a Woman do you look in the mirror and wish you looked younger and realise my skin has been neglected over the years?

    Many Women do this, we need to always see our beauty.

    With 38 years in the beauty profession as a skin specialist, I was seeing my eye lids skin droopy making me look tired and older then my 59 years of age.

    I have always looked after my skin with Microdermabrasion, Skin Needling and IPL Skin rejuvenation over the past 10 years. With my 60th Birthday only 6 months away, it was time to look at eye surgery.

    Eyelid surgery (also called an eye lift or blepharoplasty), reduces bagginess from lower eyelids and removes excess skin from the upper eyelids. This surgery is usually done for cosmetic reasons. It’s also an effective way to improve sight in older people whose sagging upper eyelids get in the way of their vision

    hooded or droopy eye is one that is set in a way that the natural crease is not readily seen. This eyeshade typically features a layer of skin that drops over the crease causing the lid to appear small. If you apply makeup the wrong way, it can make your eyelids appear even smaller.

    There are many different possible causes of droopy eyelids, ranging from natural causes to more serious conditions. The levator muscle is responsible for lifting the eyelid. As you age, that muscle can stretch and, as a result, cause the eyelid to fall.

    So it was time to research what was available, the procedure and downtime.

    This is when I discovered Pelleve.

    What is Pelleve?

    Radiofrequency Technology “Say goodbye to wrinkles without surgery”. The Pelleve treatment is a comfortable skin tightening treatment that takes less than an hour.

    Pelleve is not a laser. Pelleve uses radio frequency to delivery non-surgical skin tightening treatments and minor surgical procedures. Each Pelleve handpiece is unique and fitted to conduct non-surgical or minor surgical treatments.

    Pelleve – Surgical

    For minor surgical procedures, the Pelleve system provides high-frequency radio waves into soft tissues for the purpose of making a very fine and precise surgical incisions. It’s surgery with NO scalpel for the gentle removal of moles, warts, skin tags, facial vessels and dropping eyelids or unwanted bags under your eyes. A topical or local anaesthesia is often used and the procedure may take only minutes and will be performed in the doctor’s surgery. The results are excellent and consistent and there will be immediate improvement in your appearance with little or no bruising or scarring.

    How does the Pelleve RF surgery differ from traditional surgery?

    Because RF uses radio waves instead of scalpel, very fine, precise incisions can be made. Only the tissue cells adjacent to the wire electrode are affected, and are vaporised instead of being cut through with manual pressure, as with a scalpel. Scalpel and scissors crush tissue, whereas radio waves can coagulate blood vessels as they make fine cuts, resulting in minimal bleeding, bruising and swelling.

    Debbie’s Eye Lift from first visit.

    I picked up the phone and made the appointment to see Dr ***** for my EYE LIFT surgery. Wow was I really going to do this?? Yes I am!

    The day came Monday 27th May for my visit and I was nervous and also saying to myself “Am I worthy of this” will share more about self-love in a blog. Also it was the day after the reading of my late mothers will and wasn’t feeling that great.

    Dr ***** was welcoming, he explained the procedure, penciled the area were the skin would be removed, showed me in a mirror by lifting up the eye lid and WOW I will look so different.

    I then spoke with the Admin Lady, in more detail of how long the procedure, viewed some before and after picture and that was it booked in Wednesday June 26th at 9.30am.

    The day arrived and Debbie C lady friend picked me up as no driving a car after procedure. I have to say was nervous and did some EFT (emotional freedom tapping) before and during the procedure.

    This is the process:

    • Before pictures taken
    • Lay on bed relaxing with ice pack on eyes for 10/15 minutes (head freeze)
    • Dr **** came in pencils the area were skin to be removed and local anaesthesia
    • Then the procedure started

    I felt nothing, I could smell a little of the burn of the skin, then the internal stitches done on left eye. The same procedure on right eye, WOLLAH it was all over. The lovely nurse who held my hand throughout the procedure, placed the dressing on my eyes, then more ice pack for 10 mins. The whole procedure from start to end was 90 minutes.

    I left the surgery with my sun glasses on and bought some yummy cakes to have with our coffee when I got home. Debbie C arrived to take me home and we enjoyed our cakes and coffee.

    The key to speedy recovery is ICE packing the eye every hour for 10 minutes and that is what I did. The next day I drove myself to the doctor’s surgery to have the dressings removed and antiseptic cream applied. I keep the ice packs up every couple of hours and antiseptic cream. The hardest thing was sleeping on my back for 3 days!

    Day 2: I was at the Door of Youth Skin Clinic attending to my clients. My eye were swollen, yet very impressed with how they were feeling and looking.

    Day 3: I had the day at home, ice packing regularly and antiseptic cream.

    Day 4: I was at the Door of Youth Skin Clinic attending to clients and out doing the normal things.

    Day 5: Sunday I had a relaxing day at home, reading magazines, listening to music just chilling.

    Day 6: I had a Led Light treatment to assist with the healing, started to use cream for bruising under the eyes, which was gone in 24 hours.

    Day 7: Went out for dinner and looking good!

    Day 8: Normal working day at Door of Youth Skin Clinic

    Day 9: One week check-up with Dr ***** and he was very happy with the results. The staff amazed with the no bruising and AMAZING results in opening my eyes. Today I now start using the scar cream and will for 1 to 2 weeks.

    Day 12: Drove to Brisbane and no issues with eyes, thought they may have felt tired after the drive.

    Day 13: I am so happy with the results, sleeping on my side as normal, wore a little makeup on the weekend. Eyes are healing very well with some small bruising on right eyelid.

    In 6 week’s time I will see Dr ****, he said this is when I will see the TRUE results.

    Here are some pictures of the adventure.

    To the Amazing Woman reading this blog.

    Is it time for YOU?

    Do you look have droopy eyelids and have wanted to do something about it, yet didn’t know what to do? Connect with me if you want details on the clinic that did the Pelleve Eye Lift on 0404 528 923,
