We’re now well into awards season and the Oscars are fast approaching. Many hours of careful pampering will have gone into the stars you’ll see on the red carpet. So, what are their secrets? Here are five ways you can give yourself the flawless look of a glamorous silver screen star.

Make sure your diet is up to scratch

We all know as the dark nights creep in the craving for comfort food starts and most of these foods are sugar and carbohydrate rich. The American Academy of Dermatology have suggested that consumption of high GI foods such as biscuits, sugary drinks, white rice, bread and pasta can trigger a cascade response that can lead to acne, ageing and inflammation. They also reported a weak but possible link between diary and acne.

Look and feel your best by keeping your skin healthy from inside and out, look out for yellow and orange foods and those high in Vitamin A.  Also salmon and fresh water fish are high in omega 3 and essential fatty acids which your skin needs to keep it healthy, hydrated and glowing.

Don’t overlook the cosmetic benefits of microdermabrasion

If you’ve got a big event planned prep your skin with microdermabrasion, a one off half-hour treatment can immediately result in a revitalised and more glowing complexion that even JLo would envy. Microdermabrasion removes dead skin cells, which also allows make-up to sit better on the skin for a flawless look all evening. We recommend a series of microdermabrasion treatments once a month to achieve optimum results.

Consider laser treatment for reducing redness

Laser sessions have also attracted acclaim among beauty professionals in recent times as a means of calming down acne and redness. Who would have imagined that mere spectrums of light would make such an immense difference to one's appearance?

If your skin routinely looks redder than you think it should, it’s possible that you are suffering from broken blood vessels on the face – or, to use the technical term, telangiectasia. We have recently dedicated a blog post to explaining this common condition and how we can use advanced laser treatment to banish it.

Get the Kate Winslet look with facial treatments

Kate Winslet, who has been nominated for Best Supporting Actress at this year’s Oscars for her role as Joanna Hoffman in the biopic Steve Jobs, is bound to look fresh-faced on the red carpet. That’s because she is a facial fan – and there’s a wide range of facials that we at Dr Leah can provide. These include anti-ageing and skin tightening treatments.

Don’t leave it too late

Remember the prep for a red carpet event begins weeks before! Consider inch loss treatmentbefore a big event, one treatment a week for 6 weeks in the lead-up to an event will allow for optimum results. We use targeted ultrasonic waves to destroy fat cells without harming any other cells in your body, meaning you will lose measurable inches to fit into that perfect little black dress, leaving you to feel confident and enjoy your event! 

 

Cryolipolysis – commonly known as ‘fat freezing’ – is a form of non-surgical liposuction that can be used to break down unwanted fat. This painless, non-invasive weight loss treatment has become extremely popular in recent years, and it’s not hard to see why: cryolipolysis is less risky than traditional liposuction, and only one treatment is needed to achieve visible results.

Here at Dr Leah Clinics, we are frequently asked about the fat freezing procedure and how it can help people to lose weight. In this blog post, we will endeavour to answer some of the most common queries.

How does it work?
As the name implies, fat freezing works by crystallising unwanted fat cells, causing them to die and leave the body. During your cryolipolysis treatment, one of our specialists will place the fat freezing device on a specific part of your body (your stomach, for example). This will lower the temperature in this localised area, causing nearby fat cells to solidify and die whilst leaving other cells unharmed.

Once the procedure has been completed, your body will eventually flush out the dead fat cells, leaving the treated area looking slimmer and more toned.

Will I see the results straight away?
No. The body takes a little while to get rid of those dead cells, and the slimming effect of a non-surgical lipo procedure like this usually doesn't become apparent until 12 weeks later.

How long does the procedure take?
Roughly 45 minutes. Since there is no recovery time for cryolipolysis, this means that you can have a weight loss treatment in your lunch hour and then go straight back to work.

Are there any side effects?
Some patients experience some slight bruising and/or numbness after the cryolipolysis procedure, but this typically subsides within 10 days. Note that even non-surgical liposuction procedures are not suitable for pregnant/breastfeeding women.
