Who needs MoleMap?

Everyone can benefit from Mole Mapping. In particular you should consider it if you:

  • have many moles
  • have any moles that look odd or irregular
  • have moles that are changing in size or colour
  • have itchy moles
  • or any one in your family has had skin cancer
  • have a history of severe sunburns in early life
  • often spend time outdoors
  • have used sunbeds in the past

You need to get regular checks from your health professional or a trusted ‘mole-spotting’ partner who is trained in skin examination.

After skin cancer is detected and removed, it is highly recommended checks should be conducted yearly by a qualified professional such as Dr Kath. Skin cancer can develop quickly, so catching it early is key.

6 Skincare Tips For Men

If you're getting up in the morning, washing your face with bar soap and water and running out the door, then it's time to step up your skincare game. We aren't suggesting that you fill up your bathroom cabinet with hard-to-pronounce cleansers and creams you probably won't use. But we do recommend committing to memory and practicing these six skincare tips that will make others do a double-take. But seriously, don't let these steps intimidate you... they're only fine-tuning what you already do.

1. Wash your face with a good cleanser. Be careful of taking super hot showers and using harsh soaps or face scrubs. This makes your skin dry and when your skin is dry you appear wrinkly and much older.

It is important to have a gentle cleanser that will cleanse the skin from the dirt and oil that can accumulate. Lumi's Gentle Cleanser is recommended

2. Stop buying cheap razors. With some men shaving five times a week investing in a quality razor can be a lifetime item, so choose your weapon wisely. A too-close shave does more than just nick the skin. Continued trauma caused by cutting the skin can cause skin breakage over time. Invest in a quality razor and go with, not against, the grain of hair using gentle strokes. Choose a razor that fits your skin sensitivity and beard coarseness, your face will thank you.

3. Make after-shave your new best friend.  After-shave hydrates and soothes the skin; it also seals in the skin after a nice shave. Your after-shave should be alcohol-free because alcohol dries your skin.

4. Don't skip the facial moisturizer. Facial hair is great, but make sure what skin is exposed doesn't feel like sandpaper. Moisturizing daily with Lumi's Moisture + will give you soft, hydrated skin.

5. Never leave home without applying sunscreen. If you can find a moisturizer that contains SPF of 30 or higher, then you're on the way to stopping those pesky wrinkles. Make sure you have a spare sunscreen in the car or desk drawer as reapplication is necessary. 

6. Quit smoking. Smoking impairs blood flow to skin, and causes wrinkles, sagging skin and an unhealthy yellowish hue. The good news? Once you quit, the repairing process begins’ which may help reverse the damage that’s already done, depending on its severity.

Is Winter a Good Time for Neck Rejuvenation?

The NEWS is out! Even though we still have to move through winter, fashion houses are saying that plunging necklines for spring and summer are destined to make the stage again—but with their décolleté-revealing cuts, they may stir up a few concerns about exposing this area.

Most women are religious about using sunscreen on their face, but don’t apply anything to the neck ,and oft-neglected area, which, along with the chest, is among the first to show the early signs of aging. Long-term damage can result in sun spots, crepiness, wrinkles, and a loss of youthful definition, while post-winter dullness and patchiness leaves skin looking uneven. Luminosity Skins Advanced Laser Tighten and Tone Systems can help.

Skin tightening laser remodelling heats the skin to stimulate more protein production. This procedure targets the protein in the dermis whilst preserving the epidermis and as a result there is minimal downtime associated with this (and easily hidden with winter scarfs and Jumpers). As dermal protein heals and remodels under an undamaged outer layer, the skin tightens and smooths, thus improving its appearance. Skin tightening treatments are designed to provide improvement in skin colour, tone, wrinkles and laxity, with minimal discomfort.

Rejuvenation is supported by effective skin care. At Luminosity Skin we highly recommend Vitamin A and Stem to support your skin structure in order to get the maximum effects of your Laser treatment.
