Improvements - before summer

So spring and summer is just around the corner and we all want to look our absolute best for this lovely season, right?! Actually, the less we have to focus on our appearance, the better during this period.
I need to start with a more strict exercise regime and not eat all those yummy things in the evenings, that's for sure. Age and a slightly slower metabolism is getting to me also and instead of skipping out a meal or taking out carbs or others ingredients necessary for the body, i'd rather try to eat less of chips, chocolate and salt licorice, all of them a weakness of mine.
Funny enough that sort of craving always takes its turn during late evening, when watching a movie. I seldom want to eat anything like it during day. It has to do with the cosy factor I guess, when the kids are put to bed and we/I finally have two hours for myself, I love watching a good movie and eat something to it while doing so. But I also want to be strong and fit, and since my time and possibilities for training are very little, I guess I eat more then I consume. Anyhow, not a big thing but I feel that I need to be more aware!

So what else can I do to guide you readers through this jungle of improvements or let's call them, retouches?'

BOTOX - Well you all know I truly love Botox and what it does in your forehead on me and all my patients. No one wants to look angry and most of us really don't look nice with horisontal lines all across the skin up there. It makes us look stressed, hard, worried and older.
Some times back most people thought that you could only do Botox in one way, which was to inject the amount to the extend were the forehead got completely stiff. Now I hope most of you know that the possibilities are beyond that, you can still have a mimic if you prefer and I swear I can make you look super natural and no one could even see that you 've done anything to your face. What you do look like is five years younger, fresh and relaxed in your face plus the skin is just glowing when the muscles are not there to constantly to destroy the surface. I highly recommend it.


RESTYLANE VITAL - For all of you (mostly between 30-50 years old, you can not have to much gravity weight in your face) feeling grey and that the elasticity in the skin is lacking, or feel like you've are disturbed my small linjes or just wish the whole face had a some more, very natural plumping - Restylane Vital or skin boost as it's also called is truly something for you. I've done 2ml Restylane Vital per side of my chin and it's the best thing ever. After my two boys I looked too skinny and too "sucked out after breast-feeding" and the Vital gave my my youth and freshness back. All the cells under the skin loves it', it's like injecting all the good and beneficial ingredients but under the skin, where they actually can make a difference for real, a visible difference!


MEDICAL SKIN PRODUCTS - The truth is - no medical products, no visible improvements on your skin. The skin is our biggest and most visible organ and it needs some help to look gorgeous, glowing and fresh throughout the years. Medical products contains stronger and more active ingredients that makes noticeable differences in your face. Less pores, less breakouts, less greyness, less tired looking and pale looking. I use Akademiklinikens own line which is strong but working amazingly good. Another good brand is Jan Marini and I tend to combine the best of these two brands for the optimal result.
Another way of getting a fast result is doing a chemical peel. In combination with products this is of course very effective but I always find what you do on a regular basis, like using stronger medical products everyday is the first priority.

I use daily:
  • Jan Marini Glycolic cleanser
  • Akademikliniken Recovery cream (which is just amazing and a must after stronger acids)
  • Akademikliniken Repair Serum every second night
  • Akademikliniken Active Serum every second night
  • Akademikliniken Lift Serum from time to time when I am extra dry (not necessary for everyone though)
  • Akademikliniken's slightly tinted C-vitamin cream with 15spf which I don't leave the home without. Only problem is, you'll get completely addicted.
  • Akademiklinikens Maximal Sense spf50, an absolute must in the face and decollate. Yes, you will have a slower tan, but in the end you will have less wrinkles and less pigments spot. It doesn't give you pimps or breakouts and is a must in the sun. When you tan with a high spf, the tan actually last longer.

MID FACE VOLUME - I haven't done it on myself (yet) but this extraordinary treatment of injecting volume to the mid face (think cheekbones and the surface just under your eyes next to your nose) is where most women after 32 years old gets flat. They don't understand it and comes to me and say "i look so tired and doll, I don't recognize myself". And they leave with something called Voluma which is a slightly thicker molecular structure of the Hyalruronic acid which lifts and give that soft and lovely looking femininity and healthy look back. Everyone LOVES it and mostly they come back and say they didn't even know that one could do this.
The volume in the mid part of the face minimizes and decreases after 30th something and after children for sure. Often the volume ends up in the lower part of the face, which absolutely is where it does us no good. The lift and change the volume back to where it belongs, just open the whole look of the face and the goal is to look like a much better version of yourself. No one can tell that you've done anything, yet you look so much better and it's a true pleasure to have my patients back and see how they glow and looks so extraoridnary good again.
2-3ml is necessary to get the gravity less visible in the lines from your nose to the mouth and to get that soft and nice look again in your face. See more pictures the link below.


TEAR TROUGH - That clear shadow line, very often dark under your eyes gives a very tired, old and sad look to a face and it takes so little effort to have them gone! It can occur when you are 25 years old or 45 years (after that age, almost all women and men have them), no matter what it's so easy to take them away and to give a more natural looking impression.
Look at your face and try to picture that the area under your yes is flat, moist, fresh and without any dark shade or lack of tissue, it makes ALL the difference and it's also what eye concealer is trying to get, but even with the best of brand, you can disguise loss of tissue. It's just impossible.

Most patients that end up doing this Tear Trough treatment (see pictures and read more about it, here), always comes back three weeks later and say "my God, why haven't I done this before, my life has litterally changed from going to constant dark, tired and almost sick look to stunning and healthy". Which makes me super happy of course because we all deserve to look our absolute best we can!


LIPS - Nothing lifts positivism to a face like a little but of enhancement on the lips. When patients comes with a minimal and limited budget, I often recommend this treatment since it suits most of us women, to have a little more energy in our lips. Small, bigger, fuller, wider, less "smoke lines" - I do them all and they really make your face looks o much nicer. Try it once and you'll understand what I mean. I hate duck lips or too made lips, but a natural and beautiful improvements of the mouth is worth so much more. I truly think life gets a little bit more fun with more sensual lips, and you'll see that the eyes gets bigger, the nose smaller and the cheek bones more visible. It''s true.


PERMANENT  MAKEUP - Honestly, who doesn't want to wake up and looking wonderful in the morning? Well i know I do, being a pale blond very little colors in myself I was tired of constantly coloring my eyebrows every second week and since I don't leave the house without some makeup on my lips, I decided to make a permanent solution.
Jenny Hanzon, the talented permanent makeup artist at Akademikliniken have now done two layers and two different times on my eyebrows and lips (you only pay for one time, the second part is included in the price). The eyebrows are done in 3D which means that she paints hair so that it looks very natural.
There's also another technic for the eyebrows where thou use a scalpel, the first results is very nice but it hardly last which made me go for the real permanent makeup tattooing technique in the end. The lips she enhanced in the color I normally paint them. The first lawyer you could hardly see after one week so the second tattooing we made them darker. The only problem with making the lips coloured is that the crust is so dark for a week you have to go around like a reality star from New Jersey who obviously doesn't know how to apply natural makeup. But nothing bad that doesn't give good results in the end! The picture above shows me wearing NO makeup, (except the Akademiklinikens C-vitamin cream) in the face. It's taken one day after the permeant makeup and I still have some crust on the lips and eyebrows. Can't wait for this summer, no makeup and still looking pretty! Very lovely indeed.

EYELASHES - Magda (Instagram - Magdis84) is just the best and she does these super natural lashes in silk which I can hardly live without now. I wanted the shortest version she had, and they just look like mine, when I paint them with mascara but fuller. Perfect for a life with small children and a hectic everyday. Still today, after 4 weeks they look very good and I haven't used mascara since she did them one week before I went to Morocco.

So Ladies and Gentlemen, I hope I given you some tips and inspiration of improvements.

  1. Vad har du gjort med dina läppar? Bara filler eller mer? Hur många gånger för man det i så fall? Vad säger du om bröst efter amning, är det en god idé att fylla ut dem eller får många besvär av det? Har du funderat på att göra det någon gång?

    1. This is a result after endless filler injections before i was 30 years old. They get semi permanent after a while.

      Of course I've considered breast augmentation since became almost completely flat after the boys even though the shape is still pretty and no ptos, there's not much inside of them.

      The highest risk is the capsel risk otherwise the breast is very simple to do if you just need to put an implant in them. As soon as you need to lift them or move the nipple it's gets tougfer but still pretty simple and patients recover quite well.

      I recommend Dr: Jan Jernbeck, Dr; Per Heden (Akademikliniken) och Dr: Magnus Hober (Improva)

      Good luck!

  4. Hej Stina,

    Vill börja med att tacka för alla tipsen, alltid roligt att lära sig något nytt=)

    Är en 25 årig tjej från Malmö som är mycket mån om min hud, dock jobbar jag idag på ett kontor sittandes vid dator. Jag har känslig/normal hy, stora porer på näsan och ibland T-zon och haka. Jag upplever att jag är nöjd men att lystern börjar försvinna och ögonen ser trötta ut ibland. Mitt mål är att förebygga detta och bevara fin hud och lyster framöver.

    Idag använder jag
    Rengöring:Jan marini Biocylic facial cleanser
    Serum:Estee Lauder natt serum/Kiehls nattserum
    Dagkräm: Murads Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30I
    Nattkräm:Essential-C Night Moisture
    Ögonkräm: Clarins
    Behandling hemma 3 ggr i mån: Alpha H liquid gold (sover med denna över natten)

    Jag är nöjd men kan inte säga att denna rutinen ger mig extra lystern. Tänkte köpa Jan marini 5 stegs serien av ren nyfikenhet men kände att det är alldeles för dyrt.

    Hade varit otroligt tacksam och du hade kunnat skriva dina tankar kring hur en bra dagsrutin hade sett ut, vilken rengöring, serum, ögonkröm osv hade passat mig. Samt vilka behandlingar som hade varit lämpliga för mig utifrån den information jag skrivit.

    I framtiden tänker jag på att komma på ett konsultationsbesök när jag har vägarna förbi=)

    mvh

    2. Hej,

      Ingen fara.

      Produktrutinen har jag redan skrivit om i denna post. Lägg till e valfri ögonkräm och sedan behövs inte mycket mer. Estee Lauder etc kommer aldrig ge dig de resultat som är synliga som jag antar att du strävar efter.

      Jag skulle kombinera detta med en kemisk peeling då och då, gärna Mandel peelen som är den jag själv gör regelbundet. Det är fantastisk mot stora porer.

      Annars påverkar ju också vad vi äter mycket in hur vi ser ut, se till att få i dig alla viktiga vitaminer, rök inte, drick måttligt med alkohol och ät lite raffinerat mjöl och socker och mycket grönsaker och drick vatten. Men med lite starkare produkter som de jag nämnt tidigare får du garanterat resultat.

      Varm hälsning,
      stina

  5. Hej Stina,

    Vill börja med att säga att det är väldigt intressant att läsa dina tips kring hudvård då jag har ett stort intresse för detta. Är en 25-årig tjej från Malmö, arbetar gentemot barn på en myndighet, det kräver mycket sittande vid datorn och stress framförallt.

    Jag upplever att min hud är fin och är mån om att ta hand om den. Dock inser jag att jag börjar tappa lystern och att ögonen ser tröttare ut, detta skrämmer mig då jag vill bevara lystern och se fräsch ut. Jag har känslig/normal hy, stora porer kring näsan och fet hy på T-zonen och haka.

    Dagsrutin:
    Rengöring: Bioglycolic facial cleanser
    Serum: Estee Lauder nattserum/Kiehls nattolja
    Dagkräm: Murad Essential-C dag krämen
    Nattkräm: Murad Essential-C Night Moisture
    Ögon: Clarins

    Mitt mål är alltså att bevara fin hud och lyster, hade varit oerhört tacksam om du kunde ge dina tankar kring den rutin jag har samt vilka förbättringar/ändringar/behandlingar jag bör göra.

    Hade även varit grymt om du kunde tipsa mig om vilken rengöring, serum, krämer, behandlingar som hade varit lämpliga för mig utifrån den information jag skrivit.

    Ser fram emot att boka en konsultation/behandling hos dig när jag har vägarna förbi Stockholm=)

  7. Great post Stina! Can you recommend some products against redness/rosacea?

    1. Thank you,

      Transformation cream from Jan Marini is normally good for redness and many patients reacts good on c-vitamin in the long run since that vitamin helps strengthen the inside of the blood vessels which is inflammation and broken with Roscea.

      IPL, intensive pulsating light can also help. Talk to your doctor or skin therapist and show our surface to her!

  8. Hej! Vet inte mycket om detta, så jag frågar istället. När du fyller i läpparna, är det bara konturen eller hela läppen som får färg (tänker att det i så fall borde det vara skorpa överallt)? Är det med sprutor det med? Har du även gjort eyeliner under ögat? Hur länge sitter det? Gör det inte ont?? MVH Laila

    1. Hi,

      First time I did the complete lip and the second time mostly the contour to give it a clear line between lip and skin.

      It doesn't hurt if you get good anaesthetics, else yes!
      No since I actually love a naked eye how weird it may seem. And I never wear a eyeliner.

    1. Thank you Dear Uta.

      Yes this fiels of light improvements is so interesting and accessible to most people which is good.

      Leon's eyes are actually brown/green, but yes, dark as mine dark blue. Not at all as Alexis very light and gorgeous eyes. Love the difference look of the boys. Let's just see if Leons hair will turn out curly also since that came after Alexis' 2nd birthday.

      Hugs,

  10. Hello Stina,

    And thank you for the interesting and informative post. Was wondering if there are any limitations to Botox or hyalurone fillers when you are breastfeeding (the baby is over 1 yrs old now already)?

    Thank you!

  11. Hej Stina!

    Har du något bra tips när det gäller stora porer och pormaskar? (Tyvärr i kombination med väldigt reaktiv hy) Det vore guld värt!
