When the COVID19 pandemic hit us and lockdowns began, we were likely expecting to be facing restrictions for much longer than we’d wanted and expected. Months, possibly.

As we age, the repetitive use of the facial muscles under our skin begins causes wrinkle formation that progresses from being dynamic (ie present only when we use those muscles eg frown lines) to being static (ie present even when those muscles are not being used eg “angry lines” or “the 11s”; the grooves that […]

I recently undertook accreditation in the latest treatment option for permanent fat reduction under the chin. Marketed under the different name in the USA, it has been available in Australia since February and I finally caved.

There’s no denying we live in a time when there is enormous pressure to look good. Synonymous with the word “good” is the word “attractive” and “young”. Or young-er. To that end, from a young age, we feel pressure to look a certain way, dress a certain way and sometimes, to have attributes that nature […]
