If you want to thoroughly approach rejuvenation and invest money in your own beauty wisely, use RF lifting at Carisma Spa. This is the best alternative to plastic surgery, the effect of which you see 2 years after the procedure.
In our Spa, you can do RF lifting of the face. He removes the second chin, wrinkles, flabbiness, and sagging of the skin of the eyelids, cheeks. Unlike laser rejuvenation, thermal lifting does not heat the upper layer of the skin. Therefore, the procedure is not only less traumatic, but also absolutely painless.
How does radio frequency lifting work?
Under the action of the apparatus, collagen fibers and fibrils in the dermis heat up and lose water, harden and stop contracting. Due to this, you form a natural frame, which tightens and smoothes the skin. This is due to the rapid effect of thermal lifting. In addition, high temperatures trigger the formation of new collagen and elastin. Therefore, such a lifting has a growing effect - a positive result is enhanced for another six months after the end of the course of procedures. You notice that the skin becomes smoother, firmer, more radiant and moisturized. At that time, as the action of the usual procedures for rejuvenation is already ending, RF lifting is only gaining momentum! The positive effect persists 2 years. This is the highest rate of all non-invasive aesthetic procedures!
Before the procedure of radio wave lifting
During the first consultation, a detailed conversation with the patient is carried out, and the diseases and operations that have been transferred are being investigated. Together with the patient, they discuss the effectiveness and disadvantages of the radio wave facelift. Consider alternative and improving the result of possible methods of rejuvenation. It is stipulated with the patient that skin tightening using RF lifting is not as effective as surgical skin tightening and cannot replace it.
Immediately before the RF lifting procedure, it is necessary to remove cosmetics from the affected area. After that, you can proceed to the procedure. The time of one radio wave procedure varies from 20 to 50 minutes. A special gel or cream is applied to the skin, which conducts a radio wave and has its original components and ensures a tight contact of the handpiece with the skin. Metal objects (jewelry, piercings, etc.), as well as contact lenses and removable prostheses, are removed from the body. If there are metal objects in the body, such as osteosynthesis after a bone fracture, this area is not processed.
The technique of the procedure of radio wave lifting
The procedure of radio wave lifting is lying on the couch. The handpiece moves along the treated area with smooth smoothing movements. The RF lifting procedure directly affects the dermis of the skin, bypassing the epidermis. The resulting thermal effect activates, enhances the synthesis of collagen and elastin fibers, reduces the depth of wrinkles and significantly strengthens the skin tone. During the actual radio wave lifting procedure, strong heat can be felt.
The recommended number of procedures for radio wave lifting: 6-10 procedures. It is also possible to use RF as a one-time procedure for 8-10 hours before the right moment (it can be a celebration, anniversary, publication or meeting with friends). The frequency of RF-lifting procedures during the intensive course is 1 time in 5-7 days; supporting procedure - once a month. Thus, the minimum RF rate consists of 6-8 procedures at intervals of 1 every 5-7 days. After 6-8 sessions, it is possible to obtain a pronounced effect of tightening the skin, rejuvenating and reducing wrinkles. Within six months after the course of the radio wave lifting, the new collagen is strengthened and the derma is further strengthened, which leads to a long-term aesthetic result. The effect can last up to 2 years. During this period, you can carry out supporting procedures.
After the procedure of radio wave lifting
Immediately after the procedure of a radio wave lifting, a slight reddening may appear on the skin, which disappears in 10-15 minutes. On the first day after the RF-lifting should be limited to the usual cosmetic care, and for three days to refrain from sunburn.
To enhance the process of collagen formation, it is advisable to combine RF lifting with bio revitalization procedures. In this case, the rate of formation of new collagen fibers is faster, new threads of collagen under the influence of radio frequencies are compacted, which leads to an even more pronounced effect of skin tightening. Patients whose skin has an uneven color (dark spots, telangiectasia).

According to Chinese healers, the human body begins to age with the feet. This statement has a basis: we spend much of our time on our feet. Very often, the legs, we pay less attention than it should.
Just imagine: there are over 70,000 nerve endings on a person's feet! The foot is the place of the greatest accumulation of biologically active points, which are responsible for the health of all organs and body systems. Figuratively speaking, it is like a projection of the organs on the foot. This fact may seem incredible. But agree: often after a light foot massage, we really start to feel better and more cheerful! Everything in the body is interconnected.
Foot reflexology massage is based on the traditional methods of ancient oriental medicine, according to which the reflex effect on the nerve endings on the surface of the foot makes it possible to remotely influence various functions and systems of the body in order to heal them. Its benefits are as follows:
1. Reflex effects bring deep relaxation, reducing stress, responsible for many psychosomatic problems. Foot massage relaxes more than massage any other area of the body, with the possible exception of the head.
2. Giving elasticity to internal tissues, foot massage improves venous blood circulation and, therefore, facilitates the outflow of lymph and the removal of waste. This leads to the relief of fatigue.
3. Reflex massage quickly removes the most painful symptoms, regardless of their cause. Impact on the nerve endings of the feet provides this effect. Foot massage promotes the release of endorphins and enkephalins, which block the transmission of pain.
4. Point massage stimulates the processes of self-healing of internal organs and, thus, improves the basic functions of the body: breathing, digestion, hormonal regulation, etc.
5. Best sleep. One of the incredible advantages of reflexology is the ability to overcome disturbed sleep and insomnia.
6. Lower blood pressure. High blood pressure or hypertension is a serious disease that increases the risk of heart attack, stroke, and renal failure.
Changes in life, like eating the right foods can lower blood pressure significantly. The same effect can give and regular foot massage.
7. Relief of headaches and migraines. If you suffer from frequent headaches, foot massage just perfectly helps.
Danish scientists studied the reaction of 220 patients after six months of reflexology.
After just three months, 81% of patients claimed that foot massage either significantly helped or completely eliminated headache problems and 19% of those who had previously taken medications could stop using them!

1.Drink green tea
Green tea has an amazing property: it protects the body from free radicals, as it is rich in antioxidants. This is proven by scientists! In addition, this healing beverage flushes out toxins and salts from the body. So when choosing a hot drink, give preference to green tea. And pay attention to the means where there is its extract in the composition.
2.Do face massage
It will take you about 10 minutes to do the massage (quite a bit!). And the result will be excellent. Notice, in all exercises, the fingers seem to push the lymph along the right channels. Each movement is best performed at least eight times. And examples of exercises you can find on the Internet without any difficulty.
3.Thorough cleaning is the key to success.
It's simple: until you perfectly clean the skin from the dead cells that have accumulated during the day, your anti-aging (or just nourishing) cream will remain lying on its surface and will not help you. There is a special technique that allows you to perform this ritual with the highest quality. First, apply the cleanser to the dry skin with massage movements, then take a piece of cloth moistened with hot water. This may be muslin or flannel. And now more powerful pressing movements erase the cleanser from the skin surface. Then again rinse the fabric, wrap the area on the index finger and wipe the places where makeup accumulates. As a final step, soak the cloth in cold water and press it to the face. Done!
4.Put another pillow under your head
If you suffer from swelling, take this note first. If you can get used to sleeping on your back (and this is not for everyone), then an extra pillow will not allow fluid to accumulate in the eye zone at night. And in the morning you will look much better than usual.
5.Do not ignore the peeling
Dry, dull, dead skin cells - these are the main obstacles between your complexion and radiant skin. When cellular metabolism slows down, dead cells do not reflect light in the way young skin does. But we also have some good news: Enzyme Peelings help you regain a healthy glow. That's just better to use it 2-3 times a week.
6.Do not go outside without protection SPF30 and more
The effect of ultraviolet radiation on the skin is not only the appearance of premature signs of aging, but also possible pigmentation. Daily use of cream with SPF is an excellent prevention of its appearance. If you are often on the street, then apply the product also on your hands. Then, in older adults, there is less likelihood that you will suffer from age-related pigmentation.

Let's look at some ways you can make "me" time a reality:
First, decide that you deserve some time to yourself each day. Stop feeling guilty for taking time out for you, and realize in the long run, it's a win-win for everyone. When you are tired, stressed out and pulled in too many directions, it is hard to give your best to all you must accomplish. Remember, self-time is not selfish—it's a necessary dimension of self-care!
Decide how best to spend "me" time. How each of us chooses to spend free time is as individualized as we all are. If you had an extra 15 minutes, a half hour, an afternoon or an entire day, what would you do to make yourself feel rejuvenated, relaxed and happy? Write a list and keep it handy when you begin scheduling time into your calendar.
Evaluate the things that are wasting your time each day. Do you check your emails constantly and end up spending more time on your computer than you planned? Do you answer personal calls in the middle of your workday? Run to the supermarket daily to pick up dinner rather than plan in advance and shop once? If this sounds like you, you must take the time to organize your responsibilities, and you will gain more free time than you can imagine.
Learn to say "no" to requests to do things that you don't really want to, don't value or don't bring you satisfaction and joy.
Ask for help with chores that don't necessarily have to be completed by you alone.
At the beginning of each week, take a few minutes to designate specific time slots for all that must be accomplished—including "me" time. Treat your personal time like you would any other appointment and make it non-negotiable.
Commit to a minimum of 15-20 minutes of "me" time every day. Do something (or nothing) that completely lets go of responsibilities and releases your mind, allowing you to be alone with your thoughts.
Create a daily ritual. This can be a bath, listening to music, taking a walk or meditating. Make it something you can look forward to. Years ago, when my children were small and life felt too hectic and overwhelming, I created a ritual for "me" time. I decided it was well worth it to get up 45 minutes before the rest of the family to enjoy my coffee and breakfast in solitude. To this day it's my time to read, daydream or just bask in the sounds of silence. Looking forward to this time, and a coffee pot on a timer, gets me out of bed with a smile on my face.
Stop wishing you had more time to yourself, and commit to carving it into your schedule. Rather than bemoan your lack of time, change your approach and create the time using the tips above. You will be amazed at how a little bit of time to yourself can make a huge difference in your health and happiness!
Richardson, Cheryl. 1999. Take Time for Your Life: A Personal Coach's 7-Step Program for Creating the Life You Want, NY.
We lead crazy, busy lives. And the one thing we never seem to have time for is ourselves. This problem seems even more pervasive as we work harder to meet the challenges of this new economy.
Creating more personal time tops the list of goals many people want to accomplish. With work time, partner or family time and social time all demanding our attention, we are constantly juggling our day-to-day responsibilities. Finding as little as 15-30 minutes a day of uninterrupted, relaxing "me" time is challenging at best.
But we all instinctively know that when we take time for ourselves to pursue our passions, do the things that we enjoy, relax or even do nothing at all, we end up happier, healthier and feeling better. "Me" time allows us to de-stress, unwind and rejuvenate. Taking time for yourself allows you to renew, heal, and create reserves of energy and peace.
When I ask my clients why they don't plan more "me" time in their schedules, three common themes arise: not enough time, feeling guilty, or it feels selfish. The more giving and caring a person you are, the more these feelings seem to emerge.
Remember that no matter what we do, there are only 24 hours in a day, so you can't create more time. But you can clear some time by re-evaluating priorities, perhaps saying "no" more often and practicing smart time management.
"Me" time is not something you should feel guilty about. It's nothing more than taking some time to put aside your everyday business and treating yourself to an activity that you enjoy. It gives you an opportunity to relax, refocus and recharge. And when you do that, you can come back to your responsibilities with greater focus, commitment and enjoyment.
It is very common to become so involved in giving to others that we fail to give to ourselves, and although this is more often a trait in women, there are plenty of men out there who feel this way too. Many are so caught up in earning a living to take care of their families, that breaking away from responsibilities to indulge in hobbies, reading or hanging out with the guys makes them feel selfish.
If everyone else around you is worthy of care and attention, then so are you. You not only deserve this time, but you need it for your own well-being. Lack of time for ourselves often leads to feeling frustrated, tired, overwhelmed and out of balance. Without this time for ourselves, we lose sight of what's important to us.
Occasionally I am asked, "Doesn't exercise count as 'me' time?" Well the answer is yes and no. If you approach exercise as another responsibility to cross off the list, and/or get more joy when you are done vs. enjoying the actual time spent working out, you are probably getting lots of health benefits, but not the same kind you get from "me" time. Unless you walk away from your routine feeling renewed, refreshed, relaxed and ready to take on the world once again, you may still need another activity that you do just for the pure joy of doing it. If, despite a regular exercise routine, you still feel overwhelmed and yearning for personal time, scheduling a few "me" time activities will do you a world of good!
As the summer is quickly fading and the nights are drawing in, it is time to take care of your skin as the season changes.
The varying weather, change of temperature, hot baths and air conditioning lead to all sorts of skin distress. Humidity levels in the air tend to fall in the autumn and winter seasons, and the dry air has a tendency to strip skin of moisture. The result? Irritated, dry skin that’s prone to sensitivity.
This transition between seasons can have a negative effect on delicate skin, so we need to take care of our biggest organ and protect it through this turbulent time!
Focus on Ingredients
Take a look at the products you’re putting on your skin – do they contain ingredients that will nourish and benefit, or harmful chemicals which could irritate or damage your skin? Look for calming and de-stressing ingredients to de-sensitive and hydrate.
Dehydration can often show in our complexion – puffy eyes and fine lines can the result of this. As the change in weather is taking moisture from your skin, ensure you are drinking enough water to keep it healthy from the inside out.
Get into the routine of moisturising your skin twice a day, in the morning and in the evening. Simply cleanse and tone, then hydrate your skin with your favourite Day Cream or Night Cream. Don’t forget to take care of your body too – treat your skin to a new Body Lotion to keep dryness and sensitivity at bay.
Have you ever had that moment when you’re driving and realise you’ve been on autopilot for the last 15 minutes – and you wonder how you made it in one piece? Or when your partner is telling you about their day and you completely zone out halfway through the story? It happens to the best of us. In a society where we’re constantly juggling a million different things (and surgically attached to our phones), it’s no wonder we’re all so distracted. While it’s human nature for our thoughts to wander, this usually means that we’re either stuck in the past or future. The problem with this is that it often results in us missing out on all the good things happening in the present! Luckily, there is a way to train your brain to stay in the ‘right now’ – it’s called mindfulness.
