Worm like mites living in our skin!

06/17

Electrolysis is the only proven method of permanent hair removal, the electrical current is used to destroyed the hair follicle over a period of treatments. Tiny little white spots (pustules) can appear on the skin a day or two after an area has been treated. This may be caused by the destruction of the Demodex mite that lives in the hair follicle.

Demodex mites live in hair follicles and sebaceous (oil) glands in the skin, they are an eight-legged worm like mite with a semi-transparent body. The mites eat debris that build up in the follicle e.g. dead skin-cells, hormones and oils (sebum). They have a fantastic digestive system but have no anus to excrete their own waste. The Demodex mites never poo, they save it up until death. It’s been said that they explode at the time of death, but it’s not quite an explosion more like a large flush of bacteria which end up on the face around the site of a treated hair follicle from electrolysis, so resulting in the bacteria filled little white spots.

This is why aftercare advice is so important and must be followed to prevent any further infection at the site of electrolysis treated skin.

Day and Night Creams for perfect skin CREATION!

01/16

With so many products to choose from it can sometimes be difficult to know what to use on your skin.

The importance of a separate day & night cream can sometimes be overlooked, due to the reasons why!

Day creams tent to have a chemical compound included in them, a common ingredient used is Oxybenzone, for its ability to absorbs UVB and short-wave UVA rays.

UV ray are the main cause of skin cancer, also premature aging. Having an ingredients in a day cream creates a fantastic barrier and protection for your skin all year. Winter sunshine is as bad as the summer. UV rays are even present on a cloudy day. So a day cream is a must have!

At night your skin repairs and creates new skin cells, its an amazing creation – night creams have no chemicals, this allows your skin to work effectively, creating new cells for that perfect skin.

 

The despair of facial hair

06/15

A clients true experience – told through a poem!

“Don’t look at my face”, she said
“DON’T touch my face, I feel like a complete disgrace

The man moves away
The woman remains standing
He looks over his shoulder not understanding

It’s a secret you see
She cannot share
The fear and anxiety that people will stare

Shaving each day before her man wakes
Her heart beats so fast
What if he see’s
She falls to her knee’s

The tears in her eyes
She’s sick of the lies

The pain and the suffering of what used to be
I feel so honoured she came to see me

The story she tells of two years that’s past
The joy in her eyes the smile on her face
she’s free of the torment and pain at last

His hands cup her face
She smiles and looks into his eyes

The joy in her heart, there are no more lies

Electrolysis is the only proven permanent method of hair removal…………

Gives back the face to the women and the freedom of skin

Threading increased my facial hair

11/14

If fine, soft hair is taken out from an area unnecessarily during waxing or threading, this may in turn cause a stronger, darker hair growth.

Threading is another alternative to waxing and vice a versa. Both methods of hair removal can increase hair growth due to the nature of the treatment. Both methods of hair removal take out the hair from the hair follicle. It’s a bit like plucking the hair but just quicker, more hairs are removed at once.
Threading was first used in Eastern countries for centuries. Though the exact origins of the technique are unknown, many believe it originated in the Middle East and South Asia, and then spread to become popular in Far Eastern countries like China More →

Microdermabrasion causes trauma to your skin

09/14

Your questions answered……….

  1. Will having Microdermabrasion thin my skin?

    Areas of thick skin will be made thinner; however your skin will also become thicker too, this is due to the increased production of new cells.
    It is also important to be aware that the barrier function of your skin (ph balance) will be disrupted in the first 24 hours after having microdermabrasion, causing your skin to be drier than usual; this will disappear after approximately 7 days, leaving your skin more hydrated than before.

  2. I’ve heard there would be long term damage using Microdermabrasion – is this true?

    A small amount of trauma is caused to the skin; the trauma causes the skin to repair itself in a more organised fashion.
    The lower layers of your skin become thicker. The number and size of fibroblasts, cells that make collagen, are increased. Elastin fibres are increased; this will add a spring back to your skin.
    There will be an increase in blood flow to the lower layers of your skin, having a great effect on news cell production.

  3. How will it work on my skin?

    Fine crystals sprayed across your skin remove the top layer (the epidermis), and then the crystals and your dead skin cells are vacuumed away! After a course of treatments open pores are less visible, and fine wrinkles appear smoother.
    Microdermabrasion works by causing a small amount of trauma to the skin, causing the skin to repair itself in a more organised fashion. This creates younger, healthier looking skin.

What the NHS says!

Remove your skin tag with dental floss………

It’s crazy, after reading a NHS article today it clearly stated that self esteem can be effected by someone suffering from skin tags on their body.

I have witnessed so many people who feel unable to wear vest tops in the summer, even a young guy wouldn’t go on holiday to a hot country because he felt so ashamed of how his body looked with the large amount of skin tags he had, and then being told by a NHS doctor – it’s cosmetic!

The BIAE (The British Institute & Association of Electrolysis) are a recognised institute providing therapists with the clinical skill to help so many people with different skin lesions – skin tags to name one, with a safe clinical solution

If you or you know anyone suffering from skin tags – there is a solution, you really don’t need to use cotton or dental floss if this option horrifies you!

Help and Support during my Transition.

08/14

I’ve laughed and cried with Debs, I’ve confided and shared my life’s hopes and dreams with her, and received support and advice. As a single girl, leaving the Army, I was trying to find my way in civilian life, Debs means more to me than I could ever put into words.

Deborah Jones or Debs to her friends, I feel privileged to class myself as one!

I have been seeing Debs since October 2008 for electrolysis as part of my transition from Male to Female; my surgery was in December 2011.

So where to start! That’s not really the question; I think a more fitting question is what has Debs and Positive Pathways Beauty done for me? More →

I’ve been going to Positive Pathways for a good few years now and especially love their salon on Hadlow Road. Unlike many places, Positive Pathways are friendly and so accommodating! I am not sure how they remain so patient with my million appointment changes. Can’t wait for my next visit. I’m in desperate need of their dermatologica facial!! A must have!!

What are Varicose Veins?

07/14

Varicose veins are very common and generally cause no medical problems in most people. The veins appear on the legs, with a visual appearance under the skin.

We have Deep and Superficial veins in the legs.

The Deep veins are manipulated or squeeze by muscle movement during walking etc. Veins are responsible for carrying (deoxygenated) blood back to the heart. This is called venous return. More →
