I’ve recently been working with the team behind Channel 4’s Embarrassing Bodies, advising on the aging effects of smoking. Although as an advisor, I won’t be on screen alongside Dr Pixie and Dr Christian, it was fascinating, and flattering, to be involved with the show and to be able provide information about the damage that smoking can do to your skin.
As I mentioned in a previous blog it’s a busy and very exciting time here at Face & Body, and beyond. I recently spent a few days over in Monte Carlo attending the Anti-Aging Medicine World Congress (AMWC), it’s a bit like our industry’s version of the Cannes Film Festival, with respected surgeons, dermatologists and other experts from around the world gathering together to share ideas, network and find out about the latest developments.
Watch what model and long-time Face & Body clinic fan, Christie, had to say about how our laser hair removal treatments meet the demands of her job and diary. Christie’s busy life and glamour role need her to be feeling confident and comfortable all the time - and that's where we deliver.
As the song goes, ‘it’s the most wonderful time of the year’ and that’s certainly true here at Alva Street. We’ve well and truly embraced the Christmas spirit and had a fabulous time joining our neighbours in the West End for some festive fun on Thursday evening.
We had a fantastic evening on Wednesday with our charity seminar with guest speaker Amanda Hamilton. we keep our events reasonably small, so that they are personal and very intimate which allows those who attend to really discuss the topic with the speaker.
Amanda spoke brilliantly on "Losing weight and keeping it off" plus she gave us her personal insight into the 5/2 diet and fasting. The fantastic thing about Amanda is that she is able to convey complex ideas into simply easy to understand concepts.
