Self Love To Women’s Health & Well-being
Self-love is placing a high value on your own health and happiness. It entails attending to your own needs and refraining from compromising your well-being for others. It might be natural for women to want to put everyone else before themselves, but it’s crucial to realise that your pleasure and value as an individual must be taken care of as well.
Women’s health is a multifaceted aspect that encompasses physical, mental, and emotional well-being. While many factors contribute to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, skincare holds a prominent place in the pursuit of overall well-being. The practice of skincare goes beyond surface-level beauty; it plays a vital role in enhancing and preserving women’s health. This article aims to shed light on the numerous benefits of skincare and which treatments can help.
At Ageless Medical, we prioritize self-love and cater all our treatments to women’s aesthetics, health, and overall well-being. Aesthetic treatments can help individuals feel more comfortable in their own skin. By addressing areas of insecurity or dissatisfaction, individuals can gain a greater sense of self-acceptance and contentment with their physical appearance. This increased comfort can contribute to overall self-love and self-compassion.
Facial conditions and blemishes can have an emotional and psychological impact. Dealing with persistent face conditions such as frown lines, laugh lines, dark eye circles, pimples, and acne scars can cause psychological distress. It can create a cycle of stress, anxiety, and negative thoughts about one’s appearance. This distress may impact other areas of life, like work performance, academic achievements, or overall quality of life. Seeking support from healthcare professionals, practising self-care, and cultivating a positive self-image can be helpful in managing the effects of these conditions and promoting overall well-being. Facial treatments contribute to nurturing and maintaining a healthy physical appearance. They can improve the skin’s texture, address specific skin concerns, and promote a more youthful and radiant complexion. Taking steps to enhance one’s appearance can boost self-confidence and self-esteem.
Treatments such as dermal fillers can help with dark eye circles caused by depressed/sunken eyes, eye fillers can fill up the tear-through areas to reduce the appearance of dark eye circles. By filling up the surrounding undereye areas, eye fillers flush out the appearance of the eye bag immediately, resulting in a bright and rejuvenated look. There are different types of injectables available here at Ageless Medical. Hyaluronic Acid Fillers (HA Fillers), like Juvederm, Teosyal, and Beloterol. Collagen Boosters (Non-HA Fillers), like Ellansé, Deusaderm, and Aesthefill. And last but not least, skin boosters/healers like Profhilo, Plinest, and Rejuran.
For patients who don’t like needles, we have Emface!
Emface is a revolution in facial treatment that simultaneously targets muscles and skin to tighten, lift, and tone the face and helps restore the facial contours without pain, downtime, or using needles.
Emface is a US-FDA-cleared and CE-marked non-invasive device that uses synchronized RadioFrequency and HIFES (high-intensity facial electromagnetics stimulation) technology. The result is less wrinkles and more natural lift!
Engaging in body treatments can be a wonderful way to practice self-love. Here are some that can promote self-care and enhance women’s health. Regularly moisturizing your body is a simple but effective act of self-love. Choose nourishing lotions, body butters, or oils that hydrate your skin and leave it feeling soft and supple. Massaging the moisturizer into your skin not only provides hydration but also allows you to connect with your body and appreciate its beauty.
You can also treat yourself with self-care beauty and aesthetic treatments such as removing unwanted moles, hair removal, and fat reduction. These treatments offer relaxation and allow you to focus on self-care. By attending to your physical appearance and grooming, you express self-love by prioritizing your well-being and personal care.
Here at Ageless, we have a variety of fat-reducing and body-sculpting treatments available such as ReduStim.
ReduStim is a medical device based on BioStimology®, a low-frequency alternating BioMagnetic field is completely harmless and does not cause any adverse effects on the body. With over 20 years of clinical studies, this painless action is based on muscular stimulation without causing any destructive cellular process.
ReduStim’s low-frequency alternating magnetic field (50 Hz) oscillates from 0 to 4 gauss to open the calcium channel and release calcium from the sarcoplasmic reticulum. This action stimulates muscle contractions in both smooth and striated muscles.
ReduStim treatment is great for anyone with health risks due to obesity as it is able to reduce the dangerous visceral fat around the muscle and vital organs of the body, subcutaneous fat on the abdomen as well as activating the lymphatic drainage to eliminate toxins and water retention from the body.
We also have Emsculpt Neo, a procedure that can eliminate fat cells non-invasively, by combining specially designed radio frequency heating and HIFEM (high-intensity focused electromagnetic waves) into a single therapy. Radiofrequency heats the muscle raising the temperature to about 40-43 degrees Celsius. This prepares the muscles for contractions, just like a warm-up before exercising. Within four minutes, the temperature raises to levels that cause apoptosis (fat cell death) and are permanently damaged and eliminated by the body. Simultaneously, HIFEM+ is emitted causing 24,000 supramaximal contractions of the muscles in the targeted treatment area in 30 minutes. Supra-maximal contractions mean that the muscles are contracting at a supercharged rate which the body cannot produce via exercise.
Emsculpt Neo is fantastic in treating Diastasis Recti. Diastasis Recti is the division of the rectus abdominis muscle, which is the outermost muscle in your stomach. The rectus abdominis muscle’s two halves are connected by the linea alba, a central tendinous fibrous tissue. It reaches from the symphysis pubis (the region of the groin) to the xiphoid process (the base of the sternum). This organised system of muscles and connective tissues plays a critical role in preserving the integrity of the abdominal wall. Numerous vital bodily processes, such as postural stability, mobility, breathing, and organ protection, depend on the abdominal muscles. Diastasis Recti may therefore result in a bulging abdomen, back discomfort, and bad posture. Diastasis Recti is a common condition that affects many women, especially during pregnancy with the chance of regressing spontaneously after childbirth in most women.
Another treatment that we would like to recommend is Exilis Ultra 360.
Exilis is a US FDA-cleared,non-invasive, monopolar radio frequency and ultrasound skin tightening device for different skin conditions such as wrinkles, skin laxity, and excessive fat. This is a no-downtime treatment for loose saggy skin that is a result of ageing, weight loss or post-body contouring. It is ideal for anyone seeking skin tightening and body contouring without the need for surgery with no downtime.
Exilis Ultra 360 can also be used on the face for different skin conditions such as wrinkles, skin laxity, and double chin. This no down time treatment lift and tighten the face.
It is important for women to have access to comprehensive and compassionate healthcare that addresses their intimate wellness needs. Regular check-ups, open communication with healthcare providers, and staying informed about intimate health contribute to the well-being and empowerment of women.
Intimate wellness care becomes particularly relevant as women experience age-related changes and menopause. During these life stages, hormonal shifts can affect the intimate area and cause conditions such as urinary incontinence, a decrease in the appearance of the intimate area, a loose vagina, and a lowered pelvic floor. Seeking appropriate care, including hormonal treatments, lubricants, or treatments, can alleviate symptoms and maintain intimate well-being. Taking care of intimate areas also contributes to a woman’s overall quality of life. It helps ensure comfort, hygiene, and sexual satisfaction, which are essential aspects of a fulfilling and healthy life. By prioritizing intimate health, women can enhance their physical, mental, and emotional well-being, leading to improved overall quality of life.
There are treatments available in Ageless Medical that can help with these conditions. Exilis Ultra Femme 360 is a non-invasive, no downtime, vagina-tightening treatment that uses radio frequency (RF) energy to tighten the vaginal area for improved intimate health. Exilis Femme has versatile applicators that can be used internally (i.e. vaginal canal) and externally (i.e. Labia). The Exilis Femme uses the designated applicator that simultaneously delivers RF waves inside the vaginal canal. The device tightens the vagina by emitting energy that heats the deeper tissues to stimulate collagen production and tightens elastin fibres to firm and tone the vaginal and vulvar areas.
For weak pelvic floor muscles, we have Emsella for strengthening pelvic floor muscles and for the treatment of urinary incontinence in both males and females. Emsella utilizes HIFEM technology (high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy) to target the pelvic floor muscles without conscious effort on your own. It delivers more than 11,000 supramaximal contractions of the pelvic floor muscles or Kegel muscle contractions in a single 28-minute session. This is essential for muscle re-education of incontinent patients, women after childbirth and those with decreased intimate satisfaction.
In conclusion, self-love is not merely a superficial practice but a fundamental aspect of women’s health. Through nurturing the skin’s health, preventing and detecting skin conditions, boosting self-esteem, reducing stress, and promoting healthy habits for the body, skincare plays a pivotal role in enhancing women’s well-being. By recognizing the importance of skincare and integrating it into their daily lives, women can reap the numerous benefits it offers and embark on a journey towards holistic health and self-care.
