This year Mother’s Day falls on Sunday the 13th of May (you’re welcome). From the first time mum to grandma, we look at the most popular treatments and products for the mothers of Perth.
The Fresh Mum – baby been on board
Because there has not been enough research, it is still unclear whether or not the toxins that make up the formula for wrinkle relaxers can spread to a nursing child through breast milk, or impact unborn babies during pregnancy. Therefore most doctors recommend avoiding cosmetic injections during pregnancy and breast-feeding.
But what about when bubba is weened off the boob? You’ve got a first time mother who is so exhausted that the lack of sleep for over a year is written all over her face.
At Utopian Cosmetics we treat many new mums that bound through the door saying they’ve finished breast feeding and they feel ready for facial rejuvenation. Depending on the patient, this can be achieved using wrinkle relaxers across the forehead, frown lines and crows feet. Or with dermal fillers for a ‘Tear Trough Treatment’ that reduces the appearance of bags under the eyes.
Play Date Mum – she hosted all holidays
We all have that friend who constantly puts their hand up to host the kids play dates or are happy to trek to Adventure World in the mum-mobile. With screaming kids hitting the high notes, poor mum is juggling playtime with Panadol in an effort to get rid of a debilitating migraine.
Many migraine sufferers can experience fifteen or more days of severe pain each month and pain medicine often won’t do the trick when day-to-day life needs to continue. The same substance used in anti-wrinkle injections known as Botulinum toxin type A is also used to treat migraines and severe headaches.
Dr. Dennis will inject multiple doses of the medicine in specific points along the bridge of the nose, temples, forehead, the back of the head, neck, and the upper back to release tension in the muscles. By treating this condition, mum will trooper on without nasty migraine symptoms that can greatly affect family, work, and her social life.
Grandma – wants her groove back
Neck Bands, also known as platysmal bands, are a physical trait that arise as a result of overactive neck muscles. As we age, these neck lines become more and more prominent, and they can pull down on the lower face. This gives the appearance of excess neck skin and a sagging jowl near the mouth – all of which are obvious signs of ageing.
The Nefertiti Lift is a technique using wrinkle relaxers, and in some cases fillers, to redefine the jawline and soften marionette lines. This counteracts the effects of ageing, loss of elasticity and sagging features on the neck and is suited to people aged between 55 to 75 years.
