Sugar ages the skin!

Happy Easter 🐣 

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news while you're all tucking into your chocolate BUT...

Eating too much sugar over time ages the skin, making it dull and more prone to wrinkles. This is due to a process called glycation. 

Eat chocolate in moderation & cut out sugars where you can e.g. In teas/coffees and on breakfast cereals.

Interview for Shemazing on Lip Fillers

Claudia McGloin was interviewed for this feature on Lip Fillers for Shemazing where she discusses her own personal experience of botched lip fillers! 💉💋💉

This article also discusses the cosmetic cowboys offering cheap lip fillers, professionals who split syringes of filler and fake products on the Irish market. 💋💉💋

Safety is paramount so, please only choose reputable experienced medical professionals in clinics. Non health professionals cannot deal with complications such as Vascular Occlusions!

Facial Thread Veins

THREAD VEINS otherwise known as Spider Veins, Broken Veins, Venous Flares, Broken Capillaries or Surface Veins are extremely common. Telangiectasia, the medical term are red or purple in colour and are visible on the skins surface. They can appear in clusters or as individual veins and are usually about 1-2mm. They are also Genetic and effect both men and women. 

Facial Thread Veins are usually found around the nose but can spread up onto the cheeks. These are very different to the Thread Veins that are found on the legs. 

Although they are called Thread Veins they are Dilated Capillary Networks from your Arteries (Arteries take blood from the heart to the rest of the body and Veins return blood to the heart). The blood inside them is more oxygenated and therefore appear brighter red in colour.

Facial skin tends to be much more sensitive than the skin on the legs, and is also exposed to daily elements like sun and wind. Facial Thread Veins can also be triggered by extremes of temperatures and are often a consequence of Rosacea. 

Effective treatment for Facial Thread Veins can usually be achieved by using one of the following treatments:

  • Advanced Electrolysis
  • Intense Pulse Light (IPL)
  • Laser

All of these treatments work by using heat to destroy the Blood Vessel. Injecting vessels on the face is NOT recommended! 

Thread Veins are generally harmless, but can, on rare occasions, be a symptom of other vascular issues. If you do happen to notice any thread veins, it's advisable to contact a medical professional with experience in skin conditions.
