Hair removal, Anti-wrinkle Injectables, Tans, Boobs, Simple ways to de-stress, recipes from the BR Kitchen, Product spotlight of Actinica, Why we use Jane Iredale the Skincare mineral makeup
Spring in Geelong is such a beautiful time of the year. We get our first taste of some warmer weather, the bay shines and the blooms are starting to pop up here, there and everywhere.
~ “Spring is nature’s way of saying, Let’s party!” From the unforgettable King of Comedy, Robin Williams. ~
Simple ways to de-stress…
Celebrate the small stuff! Take a moment to appreciate the many things you have to be grateful for. Make it real by writing down your list — the hot coffee you had with breakfast, the way your husband/children/neighbour makes you laugh, the blue sky — nothing is too small or too big. Whatever we focus on magnifies; but by choosing to highlight the positive you’ll only invite more of it to grow.
External beauty starts internally. Spring is the perfect time to get your hands on the yummy berries starting to come into season. Blueberries contain more antioxidants than any other fruit- which is why we love it for our Blueberry Smoothie Facial $139 and for our internal beauty drinks.
INGREDIENTS- 1 cup blueberries, 1 cucumber, 1/2 lemon (rind removed), 2 apples
Juice all ingredients in order and serve over ice
Spotlight on Jane Iredale the Skincare Makeup.
Q-What is mineral makeup and why should I use it?
A-The main idea is that mineral makeup (and in our case) Jane Iredale enhances the health of the skin with its mineral ingredients, antioxidants and vitamins, and compliments the treatments and skincare our patients and clients are using to actively improve the health of their skin. Jane Iredale uses such high quality, purified minerals it can be used straight after strong resurfacing procedures and surgeries. Mineral makeup also protects the skin with physical sunscreen making it a must for all Aussie gals.
April has arrived and everyone is getting ready for the Easter Bunny!
For those who haven’t taken advantage of our current Autumn Revive promotions there truly is something for everyone. A pigment buster facial for $135 (save $155)- perfect for reversing sun damage from the harsh summer rays- this includes an indulgent facial treatment with medical grade skin products, an AHA/BHA peel, hydrating treatment, lip and eye treatment and aromatherapy massage. We also have 50% off laser hair removal and laser tattoo removal packages and some speciality injectable packages unique to Body Recon comprising of both Swedish Dermal Filler and antiwrinkle injectables.
April is rhinoplasty month at Body Recon! Rhinoplasty is commonly performed aesthetically for patients who dislike the shape or size of their nose or to assist patients who suffer from breathing difficulites or nasal trauma. Dr Rahdon has just returned from Italy where he attended a prestigious rhinoplasty conference for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons. Here is what he has to say about his time away.
“I attended the fourth Bergamo Rhinoplasty Course for five days in the middle of March. This included a dissection workshop day, many lectures from rhinoplasty experts from all over the world and operations transmitted live to the lecture theatre. It is always interesting to talk to colleagues from other countries and to compare notes on new innovations in surgery and reassuring to know that the techniques that I use here in Geelong are the same as those used by the best in the world. There are always new ideas out there and I am looking forward to bringing new techniques and advances in technology to Body Recon. The days were long- 7.30am to 8.30pm which left little time for sightseeing but what I did see of the old walled part of Bergamo city is definitely worth returning to for further exploration!”
Visit the rhinoplasty gallery for more before and afters.
We also filmed a non-surgical liquid rhinoplasty performed by Dr Rahdon. Dr Richard Rahdon commonly performs liquid rhinoplasty utilizing swedish dermal filler to enhance and alter the shape of an individual’s nose. In the video he administers swedish dermal filler to the tip of the nose to fill a distinctive cartilage separation, this also creates a lovely shape to the tip. Depending on the individual, a liquid rhinoplasty can be a great alternative to a surgical rhinoplasty. Watch the video here.
While you are relaxing over Easter, spare a thought for Dr Rahdon and his wife, Kath who are training for the Great Ocean Road Marathon on 18th May. They are running to raise much-needed funds for the Andrew Love Cancer Centre in Geelong.
If you’d like to support them in this cause please visit http://www.mycause.com.au/page/teambodyreconmarathon

We hope you all have a wonderful Easter break!
Welcome to our February newsletter!
Feb’s an exciting time at Body Recon, as the kids (finally) go back to school and their mums and dads are able to allocate some ‘me time’ back into their routines. Valentine’s Day (guys remember- it’s Friday February 14th!) is the perfect way to treat your loved one to something a bit indulgent at Body Recon. Our ‘Be My Valentine Package’ is the best way to earn some brownie points and show her (or him!) how much you love her.
It’s also time to begin prep for our clients undergoing TCA peels either as a stand-alone treatment or in conjunction with facial surgery. At Body Recon, there is no such thing as an impulse chemical peel – correct preparation is the key to aid in less downtime and a better penetration of the peel = a better result. Watch a TCA in action and hear Dr Rahdon talk you through the process.
We are launching this year’s Clinic peel season with an Advanced Skin Technology Peel Package launch night. If you are interested in having some skin refining treatments at Body Recon Cosmetic Clinic over the cooler months then you don’t want to miss our introductory evening. Stay posted you dont want to miss this!
Dr Rahdon has posted a new blog on Blephraplasty- sagging eyelids. Eyelid surgery has become very popular for both cosmetic and non-cosmetic reasons here in Australia and Geelong is no exception. Read the full article here. See some of Dr Rahdon’s before and after photo’s for blepharoplasty
Body Recon will be the first and only clinic in Geelong to stock the new medical Swiss skincare line, Nuscens. This is another amazing line, different to our current products and specifically targeted at anti-ageing. We will be launching Nuscens at Body Recon Cosmetic Clinic in March/April so stay tuned for how you can tackle the signs of ageing with Nuscens skin care.
STAFF TIP- Pigment can be one of the hardest things to treat, so prevention is the best cure. Whenever exercising outdoors or if you’re planning on spending those hot summer days down at the beach, always use a sweat and water resistant chemical sunblock. I personally love Actinica it’s a SPF 50 and won’t wear off no matter how hard you train. – Maddison Osbourn- Senior Laser Technician
The biggest myth about anti-wrinkle injectables is that they are only for the more mature client. It is highly effective to be used as a preventative treatment in your mid-twenties, starting off with smaller doses to weaken those muscles that cause the deep wrinkles we see in clients in their 40’s. Prevention is the best cure! We protect our skin from the sun with sunscreen and we can prevent wrinkles with anti-wrinkle treatments!- Leah Mulder- Senior Cosmetic Nurse Secialist
We hope your all enjoying this gorgeous February weather and remember to slip slop slap!
